Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Locks - Standard Pin Lock - C23256 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at this Curt half-inch base rail locking pin for 5th wheel trailer hitches. Now this is a bent pin-style lock which will secure your 5th wheel trailer hitch to your standard base rails in your truck bed, and basically you'll use this in place of the normal pinning clip on one of your hitch legs or one of the tabs on your 5th-wheel slider. The top-mounted lock cylinder here, it's easy to access and operates just with an eighth of a turn. Turn the key and eighth of a turn and it'll unlock it. Then you don't need the key in it to lock it back. You can just push it on and it'll lock into place.Has an extra-long steel pin which is very strong and durable.

The housing on this is an aluminum housing, has a nice black powder coat finish to resist corrosion. And if you notice right down here, it conceals part of the pin to prevent any theft. Does have this weather-resistant dust cover over, keeps the lock cylinder free from water and debris, and it does come with the two keys.A few specs on this. The usable length, which would be the measurement from where it bends here to the very lock itself, you'll be looking right about 2-3/4 inches for the usable length, and the pin diameter is a half inch in diameter. So what I just want to show you now, here's your normal pinning clip.

So when your 5th wheel or your slider goes down onto your hole, drops in there, tab drops in there, then you usually just put your pin and clip over there like that, and that holds it into place.So if you want to give extra security, just remove the pinning clip, take your Curt lock right here, pop open the cover, go ahead and put your key in there, turn an eighth of a tun to unlock it, and then this time just put your pin all the way through and again, take your key out. You don't need to have the key in there, and then just line the hole up. Push it in, and right there you can see it'll lock that pin into place, and then your 5th wheel will be up here and nobody can access that. And then to unlock it, just put your key in there, turn it the eighth of a turn, then remove the pin. Simple as that.But that should do it for the review on the Curt half inch base rail locking pin for 5th wheel trailer hitches..

Do you have a question about this Hitch Lock?


  • Does the Head Unit of B&W Patriot Lock
  • There is not a locking mechanism for the head unit of the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3255. You can lock the base of the Patriot to your base rails with the Base Rail Lock # C23256 and to keep the head unit of the Patriot in your possession you can simply lift it out of your truck when you are not towing because as you mentioned that can be done in less than 15 seconds and the head weighs just 52 lbs. You can then store the head wherever you like to keep in safe and sound. I...

  • Weight of Head Unit and Base of Demco Recon Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • The Demco Recon 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM8550043 is made up of the Head Unit # DM6169 and Base Assembly # DM6180, with each piece weighing 50 lbs, making this most lightweight, easy-to-handle fifth wheel hitch available. In terms of locking it the only security measure is a Base Rail Lock # C23256 which locks the hitch to your base rails. There is no way to padlock it to prevent someone from releasing the hitch, though you'd have to be extraordinarily unlucky for someone to just walk...

  • Lock Recommendation for Securing Curt A20 Fifth Wheel Hitch to Rails
  • As long as the diameter of the pins that hold the fifth wheel to the rails is 1/2 inch the part # RP58093 will fit according to Reese. Curt actually has a lock for their 1/2 inch diameter fifth wheel pins as part # C23256 that would be a great option.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch Setup for a 2018 Ford F-150 with the 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • My favorite 5th wheel hitch and install kit for a 2018 Ford F-150 with the 5-1/2' bed is the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16120 and the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit part # C16442-104. The Curt A16 has wraparound locking jaws which are going to create a more secure grip on the kingpin and reduces chucking and jarring. It also has built-in zerk fittings which makes maintenance very easy and a 16,000 lb towing capacity which will be more than enough for your needs. The...

  • Best Tonneau Cover to Protect 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • Thank you for your purchase of the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16521. In order to protect this hitch I recommend using the BAK Revolver X2 Hard Tonneau Cover part # BAK39213. The reason for this is that this is a very strong and durable tonneau cover. It is constructed of 1/4" thick rustproof aluminum slats and has a low profile appearance for a sleek look. It offers a no-drill installation and comes with a three year warranty. The Revolver X2 is one of our most popular...
