XL Silent Hitch Pin DiagramXL Silent Hitch Pin Close Up

Place the block inside your ball mount or hitch accessory, and line up the hole in the block with the pin hole in your ball mount. Slide your ball mount into your hitch and insert the hitch pin. To activate the anti-rattle device, just twist the pin to tighten it down. Doing this will pull the accessory up against the wall of your hitch receiver, thus keeping the accessory from moving around inside your hitch. No more annoying clanking or vibrating.


The 90 degree lock goes on the end of the anti-rattle pin to provide security for your hitch-mounted accessories. It swivels for easy access in tight spaces. Two rubber-coated, stainless steel keys are included with the lock. A sturdy rubber dust cap comes attached to the barrel lock so that you can easily cover the lock cylinder, thus ensuring that no dirt or grime will get in to damage the lock.

Video Transcript for Lets Go Aero Hitch Locks - Universal Anti-Rattle Lock - SHP2040-XL Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the XL anti-rattle trailer hitch receiver lock for 2 and a half inch hitches. This trailer hitch lock is used in place of a standard pin and clip to prevent theft of your ball mount or hitch mount accessory. It allows you to secure your bike rack, cargo carrier, ball mount, hitch cover and more to your trailer hitch. Comes with an anti-rattle pin that reduces play and vibration in the hitch connection.What you need to do is place the block with the spring inside of the shank of the ball mount or your hitch mount accessory. Then you just slide that accessory into your trailer hitch on the vehicle and then you insert the pin through the accessory, through the hitch and through the accessory and through the block. And then you'll tighten the pin.

You can get it hand tight most of the way and then you'll need to finish it off using an adjustable wrench or a 5/8th inch wrench or socket.As you do that, it actually pulls the shank of the accessory tight against the side of the hitch receiver wall which reduces and in most cases, fully eliminates rattle, wobble or any excessive play from within the hitch. Once you have that installed, you place on the sleeve and then you snap the lock into place and you place on the dust cover.It's a really nice design. It features this 90 degree barrel style lock that swivels for easy access in tighter spaces. Keys are included and it has the weather resistant rubber dust cap that keeps the cylinder free of dirt, grime, debris and moisture. We're looking at a nice durable, sturdy steel construction with protective finishing to resist rust and corrosion.

Again, this is designed for two and half inch by two and a half inch trailer hitch receivers. It also fits wide factory two inch Toyota hitch receivers and two and a half inch GM hitch receivers.Your ball mount or hitch accessory must have a hollow shank in order for this to work because you have to slide that block inside of the shank. Pin diameter is 5/8th of an inch. The inside pin length is 3.54 inches and the overall length is six and 3/4 inches. To unlock it, you just open up the dust cap, you take one of the keys, place it in, give it a turn and it allows the lock to disengage from the pin.That's going to do it for today's look at the XL anti-rattle trailer hitch receiver lock for two and a half inch hitches..

Well made and easier to install than you would think. The threaded block and attached spring stay in place while you thread the bolt through. Keys are generic and should be marked somehow so they can be identified in a sea of other keys. 614726

I was unable to use the "anti-rattle" part because the Weighsafe hitch is completely solid, no way to insert the square block and spring piece to keep the hitch from rattling, a complete oversight on my part, however I still used it without the spring and block piece and it worked fine.

This product functions as advertised and as expected. It locks securely. Due to the external configuration of my receiver, I must attach the lock and then tighten the locking nut. If tightened first, the through-bolt cants slightly inhibiting the lock from engaging properly. If done in the proper order, the lock remains locked and secure. 514285

So far, so good. The receiver lock was a little difficult to install, had a hard time getting it to thread initially, was rather frustrating, but after taking it out and putting it back in a couple of times, we were able to finally get it to tighten. Then we were unable to get the key out of the lock unless we loosened it about a half turn with a wrench - so looks like we will have to be sure we have the right size wrench in the toolbox if we ever need to take it off because when it is tightened securely, you can't get the key to come out of the lock. Other than that, it seems to work great, no rattle and the lock is definitely secure. The cap over the lock is a great feature too. 243943

Nope - had to literally destroy it the 2nd time we tried to take it off, couldnt get it to unlock. Total trash.

I have a CURT CL-3 hitch # 13650 and this hitch lock was the only one that fit. It needed the XL size. My hitch has 2 holes on the receiver. One on the left and one on the right side. The left side is a small hole with threads and the right side is a bigger hole and this lock fits. Easy to install and works well. Ships fast. 161830

I would give this product 5 stars but the shank should not be tappered at one end, but i love the fact that it screws in and not many people are going to carry around a impact to undo it, nice product. 683475

Only just received it so can’t speak on longevity but fit perfectly and was exactly as described. Everything was machined/cast smooth. Love the fact that the way they anti rattle mechanism works it also provides additional security. Seems all the locks regardless of price can just be snapped off but this has to be snapped and unbolted requiring additional time to have your hitch stolen. 656827

I recently got a 2019 Tacoma SR5 and needed to purchase a locking pin for an adapter I purchased for my mtb rack that fits 1 1/4”. I first bought the standard size locking pin for this brand, the one that is about an inch shorter. It wasn’t long enough for my 2 inch receiver so I had to return it. I then re-purchased this XL version which is about an inch longer. This works perfectly as I can now fit the locking mechanism on the end of the pin. If you have a 2016+ Tacoma, then you need this locking pin to fit the receiver. Happy so far as I just tested it out today and had no wobble. 649656

Fair for light duty. Works when used to tow my boat or bike trailer. But when I put one on my tow hitch to tow my truck behind our motorhome it didn't last ill be trip. The threads locked up and it had to be cut off. Unfortunately I bought a few of these before I discovered how weak they are. 514331

Lets Go Aero recommends using a petroleum-based lubricant on the threaded portion of the lock to prevent it from seizing.

Extra long Anti-rattle receiver lock for 2-1/2" receiver. Did not work as expected. This was made for a 2" receiver as the insert nut fits a 2" tube and not a 2-1/2 in tube. Cannot keep nut in place to locate pin because the nut is too small and the spring pressure is not enough to keep in place in a 2-1/2" tube. Disappointed at best. 315751

The design overall is impressive. However, went on a 300 mile trip haulingva 6x12 enclosed trailerand the end that screws in to the square kept coming loose.

Bought this for a 2 1/2" hitch and the spring is a little weak to hold the nut in place. Also the nut is a little small and just touches the corners to prevent spinning. This lock is fitted for both 2 and 2 1/2" hitches, would be nice to have one better fitted for the 2 1/2" 270997

I bought this for my 2016 ram dually to correct the sloppiness in the rock tamer mud flaps that mount on my ball mount. I'm happy to report that after a couple of days this hitch pin works great and no movement at all. 257668

  • The Brophy Stabilizer Bracket # RHSB will not work with a 2-1/2-inch hitch that is used with a reducer sleeve like # 58102 but we do have options that will. All anti-rattle devices for use with a 2-1/2-inch hitch like the one on your 2010 Silverado are displayed on the page I linked for you. The one I recommend is the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-062. This item is rated for both accessory use with things like bike racks and also for towing applications. You can use this so long as your...

For this rack, you don't want to use the factory adapter sleeve, but rather you would use the Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender - 2-1/2" to 2" Trailer Hitch - 7" Long # HR26.

The Anti-Rattle Receiver Lock # 63232 fits a 2" receiver, has a 2-5/8" pin length and is for use with ball mounts that have a hollow shank.

  • Recommended Reducer Sleeve and Anti-Rattle Pin for 2017 F-250 With 3 Inch Receiver
  • The Reducer Sleeve for Super Titan Hitch Receivers - 3" to 2" # 38735 is a much better option than using multiple sleeves. The XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2-1/2" Hitches # SHP2040-XL has a 3.54 inch pin span that will work if the outer edges of your receiver don't exceed that. The 3 inch pins like # WS05 only have that 3-1/2 inch span, so it should work and give you the anti-rattle stabilization as well but you may need to get a longer spring for easy installation.

I would probably use it in the configuration you referenced. That way the # RM-062 isn't supporting the tongue weight of the setup.

Since your Suburban has the 2 inch receiver, you'd need the # 63232. If the 4 pole on your Suburban is fixed in place on the bumper, I'd recommend the # 9653P extension. The Curt # C18153 you're referring to isn't specifically designed for a light kit, so they're aren't any pre-drilled holes on the carrier to mount...

The receiver tube of your hitch can't be more than 2-5/8 inches. If it is, use # SHP2040-XL. The manufacturer recommends using an anti-seize compound like # LT37616 on the threads of the lock before use.

  • When towing a trailer you can use the Let's Go Aero anti-rattle hitch lock, # SHP2061. You can use # SHP2061 even if the pin does not go all the way through the shank. The clip is just a fail safe. Provided the pin is properly tightened down then the lock washer will provide tension to keep the bolt from backing out. The pin, if threaded all the way in, measures 4-1/2 inches from the outside of one pin hole to the tip of the pin. It is 3-3/4 inches to the notch for the clip so it would...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for a 2 Inch Hitch
  • I have a solution for you, but the part # SHP2040-XL that you referenced is designed for 2-1/2 inch hitches so I would not recommend it for your 2 inch hitch. For the version of this device designed to fit 2 inch hitches you would want the part # 63232 instead.

  • Compatibility of B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook # BWTS10055 with Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock # SHP2040-XL
  • If you are using a hitch reducer sleeve such as Reese # 58102 in your Ram 2500's 2-1/2-inch hitch to allow it to work with 2-inch hitch accessories then yes you can use the B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook # BWTS10055 along with extra-long hitch lock # SHP2040-XL. The B&W has a hollow shank which is required to use this anti-rattle lock.

  • Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin for a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Using a Reducer Sleeve
  • For the 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch using a reducer sleeve you will need an anti-rattle device with a longer pin to compensate for the wider hitch. I recommend the SilentACT # SHP2082 or XL device # SHP2040-XL. For either they function as anti-rattle devices and locks. If it were me I would choose the SilentACT because the cam lever makes installing and removing it much easier than a threaded locking pin.

  • Maximum Weight Capacity of XL Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin # SHP2040-XL
  • The anti-rattle hitch lock you referenced, part # SHP2040-XL does not carry a weight rating, but it is only compatible with ball mounts that have hollow shanks. Ball mounts with hollow shanks usually have a maximum capacity of 7500 lbs, so 7500 lbs would be effective max capacity of the locking hitch pin, since you'll be limited by the capacity of the lowest rated component of your towing system.

  • Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin Recommendation for Towing a 16ft Scamp Trailer
  • As long as your ball mount is hollow, you could use the Let's Go Aero Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, # 63232. This anti-rattle hitch pin comes with a barrel-style lock and two keys and fits most 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. This pin will not fit some factory 2 inch trailer hitches that have an outside width wider than 2-5/8 inches. If a longer pin length is needed, you can use part # SHP2040-XL. I have attached a review video of this hitch pin for you to check out. If...

  • Will XL Anti-Rattle Locking Hitch Pin Work on a 2 Inch Hitch?
  • The # SHP2040-XL can be used on a 2" hitch; in fact the linked demonstration video shows it being used in a 2" hitch though it should be noted that it has an overall length of 6-3/4" and an inside pin length nearly 1 inch longer than the # 63232 so it will stick out on the side of your hitch like in the attached photo. It is also recommended you use Loctite Anti-Seize Stick # LT37616 to lubricate the threads before use. I have added a pair of reviews on this hitch lock for you to take...

  • Anti-Rattle Lock Recommendations for Use with Curt Hitch Extenders # C45058
  • For the end of the Curt hitch extender part # C45048 that fits into the 2-1/2 inch hitch the best lock/anti-rattle device is the part # SHP2040-XL which you mentioned. Then for the 2 inch side you'd want the part # 63232 and you'd be set.

  • Will the Lets Go Aero Trailer Hitch Anti-Rattle Pin be Compatible with Ball Mount Towing a Trailer
  • The Lets Go Aero Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Lock, # SHP2040-XL, can only work if your ball mount is hollow and opened at the end that fits into the receiver hitch. If you ball mount has an opening then this pin will work well. However, if you have a solid ball mount shank, then the best option would be to replace the reducer adapter with a ball mount that will fit a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening. The Reese Titan Ball Mount, # 45123, will fit a 2-1/2 inch receiver. This ball mount has a...

  • Solution for a XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock that Won't Release
  • It sounds like some corrosion may have worked it's way into the latching mechanism of the XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # SHP2040-XL that you have installed on your truck. The best advice I can give would be to liberally apply a spray lubricant like WD40 to the lock and the locking mechanism so that that it will free it up and allow it to release. Maybe some light tapping with a rubber mallet will help as well. After letting the lubricant set on the lock for a while I...
