The SilentACT (Accessory Control Technology) hitch lock from Let's Go Aero takes the rattle and play out of the connection between your trailer hitch and your hitch accessory. The unique design features a sturdy steel block with an attached spring that sits inside the shank of your hitch-mounted accessory.


Note: This device can only be used with hollow-shank hitch accessories.


SilentACT Hitch Pin DiagramSilentACT Hitch Pin Diagram

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, fold out the integrated handle and rotate the pin clockwise. Doing this will pull the accessory up against the wall of your hitch receiver, thus keeping the accessory from moving around inside your hitch. When you're done, just fold the crank-handle down. No more annoying clanking or vibrating.


Polyurethane Washer

SilentACT Polyurethane Washer

When the quick-release handle is folded down, the red polyurethane washer expands. To indicate the SilentACT is properly tightened the outer diameter of the red washer wil match the outer diameter of the flat washer.


Barrel-Style Lock

SilentACT Hitch Pin Diagram

The 90-degree, barrel-style lock goes on the end of the anti-rattle pin to provide security for your hitch-mounted accessories. Two round 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 SilentACT Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Lock Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Let's Go Aero SilentAct anti-rattle trailer hitch receiver lock, part number SHP2082. I've got some cargo loaded up. Let's go ahead and take it out and see what it looks like with and without the silent hitch. Check out the play and movement in our cargo carrier. This anti-rattle pin reduces play and vibration in the hitch connection. Now this is going to work out for your two-inch accessories and your inch and a quarter accessories. We're talking mostly cargo carriers and bike racks. You need to be sure that you have a hollow shank.

We'll take our spring insert, and we're going to drop it down through. We need to make sure to get lined up with our pinholes. We're just going to push it down. You don't want to push it too far, get it to where it's lined up, like so. Then we can take our cargo carrier and load it up. What we're going to be doing here is just lining up our pinholes just the same.

That looks pretty good. Then we'll take our anti-rattle pin, and we're going to thread that through. Now we need to be sure we thread it through the side that the insert is on so that would be this side. We'll put it through and just start tightening it down. Once we've got a few turns where you start feeling a little bit of resistance, then you can just close it up.

What that's doing is it's drawing the shank of our cargo carrier to the side of our receiver, making a nice tight fit. With that closed up, we can then take our lock, slip it on the other side, lock it up, make sure it's engaged, and then we've got it. That's going to complete our look at the Let's Go Aero SilentAct anti-rattle trailer hitch receiver lock, part number SHP2082.

Carol the replacement or alternate hitch lock that I received (since the one that I ordered was not in and would nor be in for a long time) is not up to my satisfaction. The plastic handle is cheap and the spring had to be modified just to fit. I'm not happy with the product at all and am looking for replacement asap. I will not be writing a review for this product and waste of my money. 575734

PROBLEM!! Please see attached pictures of the distorted plastic handle on the Silentact. This occurred removing the reciver lock the second time after using. For the price of this item, a metal handle would be better suited for the job of "tighten firmly". Other than this major problem the item worked as advertised. Would like to continue using it, however, a more reliable handle is essential 133655

Read the reviews, most of which panned it for the larger hitches, but I have an 1-1/4" so I went with it. I will be using it with an Aero VeeMe, which has an integrated threaded insert so this screws right in in place of the lame bolt that comes with it and makes the included spring nut unnecessary. The problem is, the threaded insert puts the end of the threads closer to the outside of the receiver so this product as is stops threading in before it's close enough for the cam to work. I will need to either shim it with another metal washer, replace the nylon spacer with a thicker one, or possible pull out the old tap & die set and cut the threads a little further along the shaft of the pin. Not exactly plug & play when used with the rack I bought. It may work fine on others where the spring nut comes into play. 250565

I am not sure what to think of this lock to be honest. I liked it but it wasnt for me and I will explain more below. Build - It seems very well built and easy to use. I would have loved to continue to use it. Although it does fit all of the hitch sizes specified, it doesnt work 100% properly with 2" or 2 1/2" hitches. Install - As stated above, the reason I was not fond of this lock is because the way you install it, you insert the block with the spring on it inside of the hitch and that is what you are supposed to screw into with the pin. On a 1 1/4" hitch, this would work fine, however I found that not only did the spring do nothing on a 2" hitch, allowing the block to slide around as you try to install your hitch into the receiver, but the block is also too small for a 2" receiver. This makes install time consuming and annoying because as you try to thread the pin into the block, it just spins inside of the hitch instead of the corners catching like it is designed to do on a 1 1/4" hitch. The way I got it to work was pulling on it as I threaded it slowly, allowing for friction to help with threading it in, but now removing it is also going to be cumbersome trying to unthread it. I opted to return these locks and purchase the 2" specific locks made by the same company because I plan on removing and swapping my rack between vehicles often, so I did not want to deal with the constant headache of screwing the pin in and having the block spin inside. Great concept, but there needs to be specific models for each hitch size in my opinion. 551058

Before I purchased this product I sent Etrailer.com specs on the type of vehicle and hitch I had. They were nice enough to send me back an actual video with 2 recommendations. I went with the SilentAct Anti Rattle hitch lock. What I like about this hitch is it's easy to install and to lock. It has a crank system which allows you to tighten the hitch so it won't rattle in transit. You can easily lock and unlock it. I've used it so far to transport my road bike. There wasn't any more rattling and I felt secure when driving with my bike on it. The test will be my mountain bike. I would recommend this product for a 1 1/4 trailer hitch as a Class I or possibly II. What I do wish that it was less expensive.. it's def not a cheap lock. 114888

Hey Patrick, so far so good. The lock still works fine : The lug nut inside the hitch has worn down a bit, but it still tightens once you bring the locking bar down

Great idea but the spring-loaded nut's spring is too short for 2" receivers. Tried to stretch it out but the nut would still move occasionally so I paid $10 to have it welded and now it's the perfect no-tool/no-rattle solution! 136256

The cargo carrier was exactly what I needed to load extra equipment for my recent camping and fishing trip to N. C. I also purchased a light harness and anti sway lock for the carrier. The light harness was an additional safety precaution for the drivers behind me to see. However, the anti sway lock was cumbersome to tighten, taking many attempts to thread through the hitch nut insert. 517572

Looks like it will work well. Great help buying it from Karen. Good shipping. For me application I had to call for help because the spring nut turned out to be unnecessary. Good phone help so I could understand. I haven't used it on the road yet, so I'm reluctant to give it 5 star but it looks like it will earn it. 487931

This lock works well with the Aero Vee Mee V2. It feels pretty light and somewhat flimsy for a lock, so it wouldn't deter a determined thief, but it might prevent opportunistic theft. It is handy for securing the anti rattle bolt without a wrench, but be careful not to over tighten. 225118



- SHP2082
by:

The anti-rattle locking pin will do the job. The rectangular nut will spin inside the channel as you are tightening it. The problem is the nut is not long enough to engage the top or bottom of the channel to prevent it from spinning. The application was a 2" receiver and mating part. It should work fine for a 1 1/4" receiver component. 221697

I'm using this lock with an old, thread-less, Thule Doubletrack 1-1/4" bike rack. I'm using a 2" adapter as well. This lock was thin and long enough to secure the rack to the receiver. I wasn't sure if hand-tightening the bolt would be enough. However, once the handle is locked into place, there is no movement between the receiver and rack. The handle is very convenient and fast. Even though this was an expensive lock, I'm very pleased with the purchase. The service from etrailer was top notch as well. The Free Shipping option took about a week for me to receive the lock. 118318

Do you have a question about this Hitch Lock?


  • Recommended RV Rated Bike Rack to Carry 4 Bikes
  • You're correct we have 6 options of RV rated 4-bike racks that I've linked on this page. The most popular is the Swagman Trailhead # S63381. This is, of course, in part due to cost but it's also a Swagman who has done very well with bike racks for RV's. A lot of bike rack manufacturers haven't put much emphasis on the RV market where Swagman has done a great job. It is more of a basic model (No locks like you mentioned) but is great quality.

  • RV-rated bike racks are made to withstand the extra stresses found at the rear of longer vehicles like a Class C Winnie View. Such RV bike carriers do not include a folding design since this would introduce a weak point, but some like the Swagman Trailhead # S63381 and the Yakima Road Trip # Y02477 do have arms that fold. On the linked page, which displays all RV-rated bike racks we offer, you can view 2-bike carriers like the Let's Go Aero BikeWing # B01311. This lightweight (12-lb)...

  • Locking Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin that Stays Tight and Wont Strip Out
  • Personally, I like the SlientACT # SHP2082 because it does thread in but then you use the cam lever to quickly tighten or loosen it. I have linked a video review of it for you. Or another option I think you will like is the Pro Series lock and anti-rattle device # PS63100. This one uses a longer block so that it cannot turn when inside of the shank rather than relying on a spring for retention. I have linked a video of this one as well. For either of these options I recommend used...

  • Using a Thule T2 Bike Rack Behind a Travel Trailer
  • Whether or not a bike rack is able to be used behind an RV or trailer is determined by a manufacturer. RV and trailer compatible bike racks tend to be more compact, and made of stronger components than traditional racks to help deal with the increased amount of force that the location of the hitch on a travel trailer in relation to its rear axle applies to the rack. Thule doesn't recommend any of their bike racks be used behind RVs or trailers. Generally, RV compatible racks are either...

  • Locking Hitch Pin for a Sport Rack Swing-Away Rack with a Carbon Fiber Bike
  • For your 2012 Ford Explorer, the Sport Rack Swing Away 4 Bike Rack, part # SR2415 will be compatible. To lock the rack, you'll need to use part # SR0901 to add a locking anti-rattle hitch pin to the vehicle. At this time, there's not a keyed alike locking mechanism with the rack that will match your cable lock. Part # AR32022 has a hitch pin that is not compatible with the rack and is simply too thin for the rack, so we don't recommend purchasing the kit. Instead, you'll be much...

  • Recommended 2-Bike Hitch Rack for SUV and Sprinter RV
  • Hitch bike racks rated for RV use typically do not offer a tilt function as they need to be as strong as possible to withstand the stresses found at the rear of an RV. A hinged tilting mechanism would tend to weaken the overall rack structure. But some of our available RV racks do disassemble or fold for more convenient storage and vehicle access. For instance, the Swagman Escapee 2-Bike Platform Rack # S64693, which includes locks both for the rack and for your two bikes, features solid...

  • The Swagman Quad 2+2 # S64692 is a great bike rack and will carry all four of your bikes as long as they're within the 45 pound limit and have a wheelbase between 15 to 51 inches. However, to load the bikes you'll want the heaviest bike closest to the vehicle so getting the first bike loaded may be challenging for some people. See the video I've linked. Around the 0:50 mark you'll see the bike being unloaded. This should give you an idea. For another option you and your wife may...

That said, even if it were to fit it would likely not reduce wobble any more than the threaded hitch pin included with the bike rack. Instead, I recommend the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-033 for 2" or part # 325-GH-013 for 1-1/4" as these will reduce wobble (inside the shank) and they also make...

  • You will want to select an RV-rated hitch bike carrier for use on the back of your 5th wheel trailer. Standard bike racks made for use on cars and SUVs are not suitable for use on a trailer due to the additional stresses found at the rear of such vehicles. The extra stress results from the greater distance between the rear axle and the hitch. This extra distance translates into more leverage on the rack, and a regular rack made for cars could be destroyed by the forces at the back of a...

If you are wanting a more traditional looking bike rack then the Swagman Dispatch # S64684 is what you are looking for as it is rated for use with a 5th wheel trailer. The only issue is that you will likely need an adapter bar like...

The trouble with using an adapter like this with your 1-1/4-inch hitch and 2-inch bike rack is that the addition of the adapter causes you to lose half of your hitch capacity. This occurs due to the change in geometry at the hitch tube. This extra leverage on the hitch means your 200-lb-rated hitch suddenly...

Hitch adapters/extenders cause this loss of capacity because they change the geometry of the system, allowing for more stress to be applied to the hitch tube because the actual load is further away. A better option is an RV-rated bike rack that provides enough clearance...

  • Weight Capacity of Yakima LongHaul Bike Rack
  • Even with just two bikes, the weight capacity of the Yakima LongHaul # Y02476 would remain the same at 37.5 lbs per bike. There is a solution for you to haul your beach bikes on your RV, however. If your beach bikes do not have fat tires, I recommend the Swagman Dispatch # S64684, a platform rack which is rated for use on RV's and has a weight capacity of 45 lbs per bike. It also comes with included bike and hitch locks, though it does have a maximum tire width of 3". If your beach...

  • Trailer Hitch and Related Towing Items for 2010 Hyundai Accent 3-Door Hatchback
  • We can help you select the correct hitch for your 2010 Hyundai Accent 3-Door Hatchback. We have two models of 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch available for your hatchback. The Draw-Tite hitch # 24795 has a design that allows the main cross tube to be mostly concealed behind the fascia panel. The Curt # C11092 will install such that the cross tube will still be visible. Both hitches share identical capacities so really your choice between them comes down to price and appearance. Since the...

  • Location of Hitch Tube Stop Tab on Draw-Tite Class I Hitch 24925 for 2015 VW Golf
  • I went to our warehouse and measured Draw-Tite Class I hitch # 24925. The stop tab is placed 4-inches from the end of the receiver tube. That tab is intended to prevent use of a Class II hitch accessory in this light-duty Class I hitch. Curt Class I hitch # C11412 does not have a stop tab. Note that a Class I hitch can handle the load of only 2 bikes, even if the installed rack can hold more than 2. This is due to the extra leverage that would be applied to the hitch tube from the weight...

  • Locking Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin for Use with a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch and 1-1/4 to 2 Inch Adapter
  • The first thing you will want to look at is the shank of the adapter. If it is hollow then you can use locking hitch pin # SHP2082 or # 63147. But if the shank is not hollow then you will need to use a regular anti-rattle device like # 93347 and lock # 5200. I must warn you that the use of an adapter reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. So if the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes is more than half the tongue weight capacity of the hitch you...

  • Recommended RV Hitch and RV Hitch Bike Racks
  • We offer hitch receivers for use on RVs that you can see on the linked page. Both bumper-mount and frame-mount type hitches are made and it will be a good idea to check with your trailer's manufacturer to confirm which type is best for your particular RV. Examples of both types are parts # C19101 which fits 4 x 2-inch bumpers (as long as they are NOT a C-channel type) and # UF35-946403 which fits trailer frames between 47-1/8- and 77-inches wide (measured outside edge to outside edge). Once...

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle and Locking Hitch Pin for a 2017 Toyota Tacoma With an OEM Trailer Hitch
  • Based off of the picture that you sent in with your question (which is always greatly appreciated), it does not look like the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset, part # 63201, is compatible with the OEM trailer hitch on your 2017 Toyota Tacoma. The J-Pin is used with hitch receivers that have the 2 pin holes which your setup doesn't appear to have. I recommend going with the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # SHP2082, which fits 1-1/4 inch, 2 inch,...

  • Can the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Lock Be Used with a Graber All-Star 2-Bike Rack
  • As long as your Graber All-Star 2-bike rack doesn't have a threaded shank the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Accessories Lock # SHP2082 is the perfect product for your application! It is compatible with 1-1/4", 2", and 2-1/2" hitch receivers so you know that it is long enough, thin enough, and the block insert and CAM action handle help to provide the extra stability that you're looking for. Attached are some review videos that you can reference as well.

  • Thule Passage 2 Trunk-Mount Bike Rack TH910XT Fit for 2014 Ford Focus ST Hatchback
  • The Thule Passage 2-bike trunk-mount rack # TH910XT is a confirmed fit on both the 2014 Ford Focus sedan and hatchback ST models with factory spoiler. My contact at Thule confirmed that there are no fit issues on your car, but it is true that there will be some strap-to-spoiler contact when the Passage 2 is installed on your car. The linked video shows how the rack fits on the hatchback version. If you want to avoid concerns about the vehicle being damaged by the rack then I suggest...
