Features:

  • Bent-pin-style trailer hitch receiver lock is used in place of standard pin and clip to prevent theft of ball mount or hitch-mounted accessory
    • Secure your bike rack, cargo carrier, hitch cover and more to your trailer hitch
  • Ball-bearing locking system provides maximum security and ease of use

The unique ball-bearing locking system on this Lifelong hitch lock is supremely easy to use. When you pop the deadbolt onto the end of the pin, the integrated ball bearings engage the lock automatically.


This ball-bearing system also ensures that the structural integrity of the pin is maintained throughout. A typical padlock-style hitch lock has a significant taper at the end of the pin where the lock snaps into place. This taper weakens the pin, making it easier to break or cut. Because the ball bearings are responsible for engaging the lock on this Lifelong lock, no taper is needed. So, the pin diameter is the same along the entire length of the lock. The result is a hitch lock that is strong, durable and highly tamper resistant.

Video Transcript for Bulldog Hitch Locks - Standard Pin Lock - BD580400 Review

Today, we'll be reviewing part number BD580400. This is the Bulldog Lifelong trailer hitch receiver lock for 2-inch hitches. The bent pin-style trailer hitch receiver lock is used in place of your standard pin and clip to help prevent theft of a ball mount or hitch mount accessory. It's going to allow you to secure your accessory successfully inside of your trailer hitch. The ball bearing lock system provides maximum security and ease of use. All you need to do is pop the deadbolt onto the end of the pin, and the lock engages automatically simply just by pushing down on this portion here. Then to disengage that, simply take one of the two keys, twist it until that end pops back out, and then, the lock is disengaged from the pin. The solid steel pin offers superior strength and durability, has a nice chrome plating so it is going to resist rust and corrosion. This system also features a plastic cap that covers the key slot to help prevent corrosion in the locking mechanism. It comes with two high-security square keys.

Again, this is designed to work with a 2-inch x 2-inch trailer hitch receiver. The pin diameter is going to be 5/8 inch, and the span of the pin from the lock mechanism to the bend is going to be 3-1/4 inches. Now, we'll go ahead and show you how this would work. We have our hitch here, and we want to secure our ball mount today, so we'll place that inside the hitch until our pin holes are in line with each other. Then, we'll take our pin and place it through. We can take our lock and place it on the other side, push in to secure it in place, and then install the dust cap. Just like that, everything is installed and we're ready to go. That's going to do it for today's review of the part number BD580400.

That's the Bulldog trailer hitch receiver lock for 2-inch hitches. .

Outstanding! I don't give out 100% to just anyone or anything. This little bugger is way better that others I've had in the past. Shipping was FREE because I needed the trailer hitch receiver as well. 3 Business days! 644719

Exactly what I ordered. 457174

I ordered this locking pin because it looked to be the strongest available. I've used others that I've never really trusted because they were hollow with a solid shaft inside or either the locking mechanism or opposite end seemed weak. This one is solid and it seems the lock will hold. The description claims it is "supremely easy to use". I found this to be a bit optimistic and it takes a little juggling to hold the shaft and the the locking mechanism still and push the pin in while holding the key in the unlock position but it is easier than some. My only real complaint is that the plastic cap that fits over the keyhole fits loosely and will probably come off right away. A little retaining strap would at least keep it from getting lost when it comes off. Other than that, this locking hitch pin is a great buy and I recommend it. 41759

Great piece of kit. I just got it but I'm sure it will last. No worries about the cover either. I had a tough time working it off mine so it is well sealed, not just a slip off piece of plastic, but a conforming rubber cap. I finally figured out just to act like I didn't care and it came off and went back several times. 735290

Appears to be nice quality and fits perfect on my 2011 Tacoma. Plastic end cap doesn't fit very tight and I'm sure will come off in time. Always a pleasure doing business with etrailer 134532

works well. like that it has a rubber piece on end to guard the lock against rain. its long enough to also use with a pin to secure - wish it had both options in case you didn't want to lock it always. 93097

Well made. Longer span of 3 1/4 is essential for newer Toyota Sequoia 2x2 receiver hitches. 73159

Review from a similar Bulldog Lifelong in Hitch Locks


Excellent product. I purchased two of these locks and although I have never had a problem at any campsite I have ever been to, it is nice to have peace of mind that expensive items are secure. I purchased one to secure the hi-lo hitch and another to secure the actual tow bar itself. Whenever I have to remove or deploy the unit it is very easy to do so. Just press the button to lock it in place or turn the key and pop the lock to remove. Simple, very well made and am very happy with the product. 672364

Review from a similar Bulldog Lifelong in Hitch Locks


I purchased the Bulldog stainless hitch lock paired with pintle combo and solid 8 bolt adjustable hitch to work on a 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 cummins. She (the combo) is a thing of beauty and now ready to work. I felt like a proud father when the man in brown arrived with my baby. I expect to recieve many years of service from these items. Your teams service is second to none.We will be doing buisness again in near future. 109257

Review from a similar Bulldog Lifelong in Hitch Locks


From a retired Journeyman Machinist - Well designed - only improvement is use Carbon Fiber for main shaft. Inconel 300 would work also, but it is too hard to machine. It will be impregnable. Carbon Fiber is 5 times stronger than Stainless Steel, it will not break. Locking barrel is good as is. 661366

  • Recommended Hitch for 2011 Cadillac SRX
    There are Class II and Class III hitches available for your SRX. I'd recommend going with a Class III hitch because it's more common and there's more accessories available for the 2 inch Class III receiver. I'd recommend the Curt Class III, part # C13002. This hitch has a higher capacity than the other hitches, but you might be limited by the towing capacity of your vehicle. Consult your owner's manual for specifics. This hitch is actually the lowest-priced of the Class III options,...

    I am glad your Curt Hitch and Darby Extend a Truck Hitch Mounted Load Extender part # DTA944 are working well on your 2000 Dodge Dakota! For locking hitch pins that you could use on the hitch and the # DTA944 you could use the part # e98880 for the hitch and then the part # BD580400 for the upright portion of the # DTA944.
