Video Transcript for DeadBolt Locks RH5-XL Review

Today we are going to review part #RH5-XL. This is the deadbolt trailer hitch receiver lock in the extra long version. This fits 2" and 2-1/2" hitches. This extra long lock will work with both the 2", which includes the newer Toyota Tundras and Tacomas, and 2-1/2" receivers like the newer GM heavy-duty series trucks. It is a deadbolt style with a flush-locking design. This is machined from a hardened 15K stress-proof steel.

A higher strength steel handles the higher load ratings of a lot of the higher class 5 hitches. The covered key slot right here, you can see will help prevent corrosion. It is a double chrome plating for maximum rust resistance. Uses a patented pick-proof screw and lock security. Has the all weather grip for improved handling in extreme environments. Now you can also get a multiple of these that are keyed alike.

Basically, what you would do is go to our product page for this part number and you will see a drop-down menu. What you do is just select the keyed-alike option from that menu and enter the number of locks you need. That way you will get all of them to use the same key. Again this is designed to fit the 2" x 2" and the 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" trailer hitches; class 3, 4, and 5. This is a 5/8th inch diameter pin.

The inside width on this, which is going to be in the inside measurement here, is 3-5/8" and the overall is going to be 6-7/8". Just to show you how this would operate, to get the head off you put the key in and you would just unscrew it like you are unscrewing a nut. That would come off and you go ahead and slide this through your hitch and the ball mount or whatever is going into your hitch, line the holes up and push this through, put this on the other end, and just turn the key like you are tightening it down. Once you get it to that point, you take it out and put your cover on. It would hold everything in position so that no one could steal your ball mount, cargo carrier, or your bike rack. That should do it for the review on part # Rh5-XL, the deadbolt trailer hitch receiver lock, extra-long version, for the 2" and 2-1/2" hitches.

I wanted a locking Hitch pin to fit a 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 Tradesman 3/4ton truck with a receiver that has a 3" O.D. My old pin from an '06 GMC 1500 was too short for the Ram. I "asked the experts" and got a recommendation for the Deadbolt Hitchlock (Item # RH5-XL) with a usable length of 3-5/8ths inches. I ordered it and received it a day earlier than promised. Installation was very easy-Run it through the holes, hold the key, turn the other end 'till it stopped, and put on the dust cover. It fit perfectly with 5/8ths of an inch of extra length. This pin is exactly what I was looking for. Summing up, I got exactly what I wanted, the price was great, and the shipping was fast and reasonable. No downside at all. 370680

I love this pin for when I use my Weigh-Safe hitch. For when I only use a hitch plug, I use the Curt Pin

This lock fits my 2012 GMC Sierra perfectly and works great. I was concerned about the potential awkward process of having to use the key to lock and un-lock this unit as you have to screw the threaded locking cap onto the bar with the key inserted. I imagined trying to flip my key ring full of keys over and over during the process. I discovered to my delight that all you have to do is insert the key , let your key ring remain fixed - then grasp the opposite end of the lock bolt and just spin it off or on. Works like a charm. 94220


Comments

This lock is working great after one year. Some metal discoloration at the 2 stress points where it bears the weight of the trailer - but I checked and it is not corroded or wearing - just discolored which I view as normal. The key mechanism works fine.

After having 5 hitch bars with 2 in. Stainless Steel Balls stolen in one night I bought one for every vehicle over 10 years ago. I have not even had one attempt since. I still have 5 trucks and decided to replace all of the others and have 5 keyed alike which eliminated having to keep trying keys until I found the right one. The problem in now solved and I have the only keys to any of them. Even though having 5 keyed alike is not cheap it is far cheaper than replacing stolen hitch bars and stainless steel balls. Excellent Products !!! 151813

I installed this on my 2008 Toyota Tundra. It fits perfect. Very high quality of steel and the weatherproof cap looks very sturdy as well. I have read reviews of people who used this for a year a two and they say it is barely rusted. I purchased a Chinese made one last year and it was so hard to remove. I love that the key turns and tightens down the lock. Thank you for this high quality product. 185059

I have used this hitch lock for a year now. There is no rust and works perfectly when I open and close it. I would purchase it again for sure. 5 starts

Before ordering the locking hitch pin online I spoke with etrailer customer service. Extremely helpful customer service. I ordered the product for a 2015 Tundra Platinum. Pin was oversized like I needed, and was not a problem. Put a couple of rubber washers on each side of the pin to help with the slack and noise caused by vibration. Works like a champ. Love the key system on this pin. I would recommend it for Tundra owners who have the oversized heavy duty factory hitch on their truck. Etrailer shipped the product very quickly and had excellent follow up communications after the sale. I would not hesitate to buy from etrailer again. 325738

USA made. Looks like it will be up to the job. Class 5 rated. The weatherproof key cap even appears that it will stay on though anything mother nature can through at it. Description photo is accurate to this pin. 58498


Comments

Surprisingly it is still in almost new condition after cold Montana winters and muddy springs. It looks like a bit of dust gets in at the base of the threads but has not yet affected operation. I continue to stand by my review.

From the first time I had a question, right up to delivery, etrailer has been great! I have an 05 Tacoma, and recently bought a trailer to haul my wifes and my ATV's. Bought a hitch lock from the local auto parts store, and threw the receipt away, figuring that it would work, but as it turned out, the lock barely went through the receiver and wouldn't engage the lock,when I tried to lock it. After a little frustration, did some research online, and found out this is a common problem on this truck, found an ad for etrailer, checked out the different locks, and found the one I needed. This receiver lock is much longer than my other lock , locks up my hitch mount safely and securely, nice stainless steel finish, looks as though it should last a long time. Thanks to everyone at etrailer, for all your help and followups. Fast delivery, fair shipping, overall a great first experience! Highly recommended! Tom 58197

Purchased a Chevy 2500HD and it had a 2.5 inch receiver hitch which made my previous lock from my old 1/2 ton hard to use. Before ordering the locking hitch pin I called and spoke with etrailer customer service and both times they were extremely helpful. I ordered this product along with a 2", 2.5" and 7/8" to fit my travel trailer and utility trailer. Kim with etrailer customer service was able to get all 4 locks keyed the same so now I only need to carry one key. All the locks work great. I would highly recommend this to all Chevy 3/4 ton owners who have the oversized heavy duty factory hitch on their truck. Etrailer shipped the product very quickly and had excellent follow up communications after the sale. I would not hesitate to buy from etrailer again. 495367

If you have a late model Chevy with a 2 1/2" receiver, this is the locking hinge pin you want! I had the Master Lock 1469 DAT before this, but it would just barely engage do to not enough clearance. This pin is much better. 191871

Just purchased a new F-250 to pull my TT and the receiver lock I used with my previous truck will not fit (too short for the 2-1/2" hitch). Ordered this one and couldn't be happier. Works exactly as advertised...easy on, easy off...and I feel confident of it's ability to withstand the loads imposed by my trailer. Good packaging and fast shipping. 469035

So far - so good! This one fits my 2010 Tacoma. FYI: The 2" product #7683 DOES NOT fit a 2010 Tacoma. There does appear to be just under a 3/4" overhang when installed. I'm assuming it isn't a problem, since the hitch still can't move forward or backward, even if the hitch lock can. eTrailer was very quick to send me this new RH5-XL. The RMA process is truly painless. Kudos to the team at eTrailer ! 272132

The DeadBolt extra long lock product is excellent and fits my son's new 2012 Chevy Silverado HD 2500 trailer receiver as described that if would. It is very easy to install or remove. Your website video was very helpful with this selection. I like the fact that I was able to have all three keyed the same. The GMC hitch receiver cover is perfect for my 2011 GMC Yukon XL. My son has not had an opportunity to install the Du-Ha under seat truck storage box, but I am confident that he will be extremely happy with it's storage features, especially when hunting season rolls around.

Ordered 7 that were keyed alike. They arrived quickly and in working order. Plenty long for a 2.5" ram stock (2014) receiver and small enough not to completely block the safety chain holes. It looks like they will work well. I anticipate packing the threaded hole with anti-seize and using some teflon/silicon grease to seal the shaft side and the key side of the head in effort to keep them from rusting tight in MN winters. When installing and removing, try twisting the fixed end holding the key still. Easier to make several revolutions if your receiver holes line up right. 551693

This is nice - quick way to secure the ball mount to the hitch receiver. I thought that twisting the key a few times would be more hassle than just the push and click type. I found I could just hold the key in twist the other end. It is nice they come in various lengths and you can get them with the key coded to their coupler lock. Now if they could just make a lock that covers the ball too and use the same key - that would be great. Can't have too many locks on your trailer. This now lives on my truck - I did use some light oil in the lock to make it easier to use down the road. 336284

Works just as advertised. Fits my 2012 GMC Sierra 2500HD perfectly. I read the other reviews before I bought this item. Wanted to make sure it would fit. Looks rugged but practical. Although you have to rotate the key several times, this item features a positive locking system. I originally purchased a different type for my new pickup. The lock fell off on I-40. Fortunately, the pin stayed in and I didn't loose my utility trailer! Lesson learned---buy the good stuff. I recommend the RH5-XL if you need a good locking mechanism for the newer, wider receiver hitch. 39318

Since this was our first trailer hitch cover purchase, I didn't realize that I would also need a trailer hitch cover lock. Once I came to this realization, I visited a couple of local regional & national auto parts retailers and couldn't find a suitable lock. I went back to etrailer.com from where we had purchased our trailer hitch cover. The lock fits and looks great. No rattling and our trailer hitch cover is safe & secure. It was also fairly easy to install. I also appreciated the brief explanatory video on the website which was an accurate portrayal. 58172

The Deadbolt locking hitch pin is the best solution for keeping the hitch safe from thieves. I needed the RH5-XL with the longer shaft to fit the GMC hitch so my old 2" Deadbolt was moved to my Wrangler. The quality is second to none!

Great to see a class V rated locking pin for ultimate safety while towing and security while parked. Fits F-250 factory 2.5" receiver with room to spare. Would be perfect if etrailer could provide a custom keyed alike service for all the various combinations of deadbolt products, as it is two separate keys is not too big of a hassle. 168115

This product appears to be superior to most of the TriMax locks I have had in the past. I really like the keyed screw-on lock.

I wanted the 2.5 qurter turn round key hitch lock, but I must have inadvertently selected this one. It is not a quarter turn, half turn or full turn key. The key must be turned multiple times to screw the end cap on and lock the hitch. If this is what you want it’s excellent. 467051

I have not yet had the oppurtunity to put this trailer lock to use (primarily intended for boat use in summer) but just from the look and feel alone I am pleased. It is very heavy duty and solidly made. I like the turning key/threaded locking mechanism as well as the rubber grips. I feel confident this will be a much better trailer locking device than the POS previously purchased at the local big box hardward supply. Thanks etrailer for a great product! 64591

Ordered the Receiver Hitch, Ball and HitchLock and got free shipping. Order was confirmed immediately by email and shipped the very next day with the UPS tracking number. Order arrived one day early to my surprise. The Hitch appears to be well made and looks sharp, the Ball and Hitch Pin the same. Looking forward to getting the boat out of storage and hauling it with these new products. Great prices, fast and free shipping on quality products. 363630

Fit great into my class V receiver. thought the screwing on and off would be a hassle but its operation is very smooth. Going to add a little grease on the screw threads to help keep the road salt and corrosion out. although Im sure the rubber O ring will do the job. Just like the piece of mind. The rubber cap for the key hole fits nice and tight. unlike like some of the softer rubber caps I've had on other receiver locks. Highly recommend. 335459

Needed a longer pin for the new truck (2016 SILVERADO 2500HD double cab long bed), and wanted a locking one (carry a receiver mount back-up/work light when not towing) and this was one of the few I found to fit the new style 2-1/2" receiver. Also the ONLY one I found that was rated at 15000 pounds (the WD drawbar costs more than the light so that may as well keep it too.....). Works great, USA made, andd stainless steel core. Perfect fix. 348650

Very nice design for a 2.5" Receiver. The key locks a threaded connection, not a gate type lock. My old Master Lock froze up terribly over time. I hope this will not, but time will tell. Looks good on my 2017 F250 Super Duty. 392299

Works pretty well. As another reviewer tipped, after unlocking with the key, just turn the rubber coated side while holding the key to screw or unscrew the locking head piece from the shaft. I got this one for my 2016 Silverado 2500HD because there is not a lot of room on my hitch for a locking pin. This one fits perfect and it is designed well enough to keep me from worrying that it might come off my hitch. No worries! 324993

The "Dead Bolt" RH5-XL receiver lock is a high quality class-V (5) lock that looks great and actually fits the HD oversized hitch receiver that came standard on my 2011 Silverado 2500 HD. I tried several that claimed to fit, but did not. If you are looking for a class-V (5) receiver lock for the HD Chevrolet, don't waist time looking elsewhere. The RH5-XL is strong, looks great and very importantly, it fits. 8467

Ask the Experts about this DeadBolt Hitch Locks
Do you have a question about this Hitch Lock?


  • Reducer Sleeve and Hitch Pin for a GMC Sierra Denali 2500HD with 2-1/2 Inch Factory Trailer Hitch
  • You are correct. Some OEM 2-1/2 inch hitches from different vehicle manufacturers are too wide for the standard size pin due to extra material on the outside of the hitches. You can get a reducer sleeve by itself. You can use reducer sleeve # DTADP25. Our customers have found that it fits the GM trucks with 2-1/2 inch receivers but not Ford OEM 2-1/2 inch receivers due to a slight design difference. Since you have a GM reducer # DTADP25 will work. For a locking pin that will fit...

  • What Size Locking Hitch Pin Fits Different Class Trailer Hitches
  • On a Class I or II 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch you will need to use a 1/2 inch hitch lock such as # RH2-XL. This lock has a 2 inch span which is the useable length of the pin. I have included a link to a video review for you. For a Class III or IV 2 inch trailer hitch as well as Class V 2-1/2 inch trailer hitches you will need to use a 5/8 inch diameter pin such as # RH5-XL which has a span of 3-5/8 inches. I have included a link to a video review of this lock as well.

  • Recommended 2-Kayak Carrier Solution for 2015 GMC Sierra Double Cab with Folding Tonneau Cover
  • Folding tonneau covers can sometimes be tough to fit along with a ladder rack since often both will use the same or similar attachment points on the tops or sides of the bed rails. But I do have a great solution for you for transporting two 14-foot kayaks with a total weight of 150-lbs that will actually cost you a lot less than many quality ladder racks AND avoid any concerns about compatibility with your tonneau cover. The solution I recommend is a hitch-mount load support bar....

  • Locking Trailer Hitch Pin for Wider Toyota Tacoma OEM 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • Toyota and some Ford and Chevy OEM trailer hitches have that extra piece on the outside of the hitch and they require a different, longer locking hitch pin. Since we found out about this a few years ago we have added the note on the product page mentioning the issue. But not to worry because there are other locks that will fit. You can use hitch lock # RH5-XL which has an inner span of 3-5/8 inches and will be long enough for your Toyota hitch. I have included a link to a video review...

  • Reducer Sleeve for 2-1/2-Inch Hitch to Allow Use of Husky 2-Inch Weight Distribution Shank
  • It is rare that using a hitch adapter of any type has no down side but in the specific case of using a 2-inch weight distribution shank along with a reducer sleeve in a 2-1/2-inch hitch, this combination of products is perfectly safe and okay to do. In this instance it will save you a good bit of cash too. You can use Reese part # 58102 to reduce your hitch opening from 2-1/2-inches down to the 2-inch size of your Husky weight distribution shank. Curt part # C45405 is also suitable. If...

For your Bulldog coupler you would have to use the Deadbolt Trailer Coupler Lock, part # 28012. This is a coupler lock with an inside width of 3-3/8 inches.

  • Extra Long Locking Trailer Hitch Pin for 2015 Toyota Tundra
  • The factory installed hitch on the Tundra is wider than a typical 2 inch receiver, so a normal 2 inch hitch lock won't fit. We offer an extended length lock, part # RH5-XL. Multiple locks are available keyed alike, use the drop-down box on the product page. We don't carry a lock with the part number you mentioned, so I tried looking it up online and found no result. I'm not sure where you'd be able to get a longer pin for your particular lock.

  • Recommended Gen-Y Torsion Hitch For 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • Yes, the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1125 is great for your needs, since your trailer and boat have a combined weight fully loaded of about 10k pounds. This product has a drop of 7-1/2" and rise of 7-1/2" which appears to be in line with your needs. The Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # RH5-XL is a great addition to # 325-GH-1125.

  • How to Use the Thule T2 Bike Rack with a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • You are on the right track. The only way we have that will allow you to use the Thule T2 Classic 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TH9044 with the 2.5" receiver tube opening on your truck would be with adapter. For this, I recommend the Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender part # HR26. This adapter offers both a reducer from 2.5" to 2" and an extension of 7" from the center of each hitch pin hole. This 7" extension will have more than enough room for the shank of the T2 to securely rest inside....

  • The Fastway Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set for Flash E Series HD Ball Mounts # FA86-00-3685 does not allow a 3rd pin keyed alike although the 2 in the kit come keyed alike. If you want 3 pins 5/8 inch diameter, then the DeadBolt Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # RH5-XL is the only option, but you can get as many as you like. This will work with the Fastway Trailer Hitches but won't have separate lengths like the kit.

  • The DeadBolt Hitch Pin Receiver Lock, part # RH5-XL would be a great lock for your 2-1/2 inch receiver. This features a 5/8 inch diameter pin and has an overall length of 6-7/8 inches. For as coupler lock I recommend the DeadBolt Trailer Coupler Lock, part # 28012. This lock has a 1/4 inch pin diameter and has a span of 3-3/8 inches. Both of these locks have the covered key slot to help prevent corrosion. We do not have a hitch pin lock for 2-1/2 inch receivers and coupler lock...

  • Hitch Pin or Lock to Secure a hitch Cover in a Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • A regular hitch pin and clip would work to keep the cover in the hitch. If your trailer hitch is a Class I or II with a 1-1/4 inch wide receiver then you would use pin and clip # PC2. For Class III, IV, and V receivers you would use # PC3. The other option is to go with a lock. For a Class I or II hitch you could use # RH2-XL. For a Class II, IV, or V you can use # RH5-XL. A regular pin or a lock will go through the hitch receiver and through the holes on a hitch cover securing the...

  • Yes, I recommend the Deadbolt trailer coupler lock # 28012 because it can replace the existing pin and it will fit inside the Bulldog Collar-Lok # BD028287. Just in case you don't have a lock for your hitch receiver, I recommend Deadbolt trailer hitch receiver lock # 7683, that has an inside width of 2-5/8 inches for a 2 inch hitch. If you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch you can use the Deadbolt trailer hitch receiver lock # RH5-XL, that has an inside width of 3-1/16 inches. I included several...

  • Will the Titan Pintle Hook Mounting Plate # RP45294 Fit a 2008 Ford F-350 with 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
  • The factory 2-1/2 inch receiver on the Ford Super Duty trucks has more rounded corners whereas the Titan pintle hook mounting plate, # RP45294 has corners that are more squared. As a result, they tend not to fit together unless you remove some of the powder coating on the shank of the mounting plate. Do not remove any of the metal, though, just powder coat. A better fit would be # 45156 which has more rounded corners. You could then add pintle hook combo, # 63012. For a lock, I recommend...

  • Recommended 2-Inch Hitch Lock for Use with Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System EQ37100ET
  • The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET fits 2-inch hitches so you can use one of the 2-inch hitch locks shown on the linked page. Dead Bolt # 7683 is a flush design that keeps the center span of the pin inside the receiver - making it tougher for a would-be thief to get to. Part # RH5-XL is a extra-long type that fits both 2-inch and 2-1/2-inch hitches. For maximum security I suggest a tubular key lock such as the Blue Ox # BX8858 which is harder to pick than a standard...

I also recommend a locking hitch pin # RH5-XL to secure the cover and to deter theft. I've linked you to our selection of hitch covers that are compatible with 2 inch receivers.

  • Looking Hitch Pin Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-150 with 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver Span
  • It will be a snug fit so if the outside of the receiver on your truck is 2-1/2 inches locking pin # BD580402 should fit. On each end of the pin, on the insides that face the inner span, it is tapered so there will be just enough wiggle room. It might be safer to go with span that is just a little wider like # 7683 that has a 2-5/8 inch span. Then there is an extra long span on # RH5-XL that measures 3-5/8 inches inside width. If 3-5/8 is too long and you do not want to chance a 2-5/8,...
