Video Transcript for Master Lock Hitch Locks - Standard Pin Lock - 1479DAT Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for two-inch trailer hitch receivers. Now this trailer hitch receiver lock is used in place of your standard pinning clip to help prevent theft of your ball mount or any hitch accessory such as cargo carriers and bike racks. It has a key retaining design that prevents false locks. The key can't be removed unless the lock is secure. It is a push to lock mechanism. It makes it locking easy and foolproof and the lock will click into place so you can feel and hear that it's locked.

It's a chrome-plated steel, helps resist erosion. If you notice, it has this nice weather-resistant snap on cover that'll keep dirt out of the keyway, dirt and moisture out of the keyway. It's a very rugged construction. Complies with the ASTM testing standards for exposure to salt and UV rays, and it does come with the two keys.Basically, how to open it is you just open your cap. Take your key, insert it in there.

Push it all the way in and then just turn it a quarter of a turn and it'll release the lock and you're ready to go. Then to put it back in, your key stays in there so it doesn't, you don't lose your keys, and you just push it into place. You can hear it lock, and then just remove your key. Put your cover on and you're all ready to go. It is designed to fit two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers.

I do want to give you a few measurements on this. The pin diameter is five-eighths of an inch and the inside span or usable width is going to be right at two and three-quarter inches.What I'm going to do now is we're going to show you. I have an example of a two inch by two inch hitch receiver with a ball mount in it and it's held in by a pinning clip. Just to show you how to do it, take out your pinning clip. Just like that, and then you can take your lock.

Pop open your cap. Put your key in there. Turn it and you'll unlock it just like that. Put your pin all the way through. Once it's all the way through just go ahead and push it on, and you'll notice it's a 360 degree so you can put it in whatever position you need that's easiest for you. Take your key out. Put the cap on and it's locked into position. Nobody can remove your ball mount.Then to take it off, again, just pop the cap. Turn it to where it's easy to get to. Push your key all the way in again and turn it a quarter of a turn and it'll release it just like that. Very simple install and removal, but that should do it for the review on the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for two-inch trailer hitch receivers.

Have used it on about 8 deer hunting trips with my storage rack. No complaints. It does what it is supposed to do. The dirt cover keeps the key hole clean and the lock clips onto the bolt easy. Also the bolt diameter matches the hole on my 2016 Grand Cherokee perfectly without any play. 445035


Comments

The lock still works great. Hoping to put it use again soon.

The lock is to short for a 2019 Tacoma TRD sport. It's a good lock for the right vehicle. 724980

Good product,just a little short.Had to remove rubber over key end to make longer to lock.My hitch is thick. 720455

by:

This is a high quality, user friendly hitch lock. I purchased one from Walmart that took “Three Men and a Baby” to lock and unlock. This one locks with one hand and is a snap to remove. Delivery was supernaturally fast ( just as fast as [online retailer subscription service]) . I highly recommend this product and etrailer. com. 692815

etrailer is an outstanding company to do business with. They stock nothing but first grade high quality products and there customer service is as good as it comes. You need help, they will help you. When you place an order it is shipped immediately so you can receive it as soon as possible. If you have a problem with your order they will correct ASAP Thank you etrailer, 652706

This lock is well made and works, but it is difficult to lock. It is designed with a spring-loaded and cammed locking mechanism so that you should be able to push the keyed barrel onto the shaft without using the key, but it is very difficult to do. I usually end up needing to insert and turn the key to get the two pieces to mate. This is not convenient when you are bending down and working underneath the truck's bumper. Pushing the two pieces together is already a two-handed job without having to turn the key. Other than this it is a quality product, but usability is very important. 647313

Great service, product knowledge and fast delivery. These folks know what they are doing, I have ordered four different products and they are great! Will do business with them again. 641295

key broke off and it never did lock. junk, threw it away, never again 638765

Perfect for the 2008 Honda Element SC setup! Leaves room to put the cap on and still get the safety chains hooked up. 627812



- 1479DAT
by:

Great fit and quality. The rubber cap fits snug on the lock so it should keep dirt and water out well. The locking pin fits my 2011 Grand Cherokee just right. No more busted knuckles trying to remove the cotter pin! 614972

This lock is easy to use. But my overall experience with e-trailer was great. Placed the order online on Sunday night. Received the product on Thursday. Having the accurate tracking link sent to me via e-trailer to my email was very helpful! I’ll definitely do business with you again. 561282

A quality Masterlock device, as you would expect, that’s easy to open/close and does exactly what it’s supposed to in securing hitch. Good price, will look to buy again from Etrailer. 527718

by:

Good locking pin, not compatible with the bike rack we purchased as the pin hole is threaded for the bolt/pin the rack comes with. 512831


Comments

Because of the threaded in the shank of the SportRack Ridge Swing bike rack you purchased, a standard locking hitch pin wont be compatible. Id recommend the SportRack Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock, part # SR0901

For those of you who stay in motel/hotels while on the road, or leave your boat trailer in a parking area while having fun, trailer security is important.Thieves can unhook your trailer and make off with it when you're asleep or away. This handy little device locks your ball hitch into the receiver. Short of getting a Sawsall to cut things up, when used in combination with a coupler lock, this will keep anyone from unhooking you. It's more expensive than just a standard pin, but what are the contents of your trailer worth? This thing is well-made, and has a rubber cover to keep dirt out of the tumbler. It's definitely worth the money. 392242

The product was exactly what I needed and the service and communications from etrailer was excellent. I will continue to do business with etrailer. 390520

Product just what i wanted, easy ordering, and fast delivery! 370394

by:

The built-in receiver on our Chinook rv had very little side room to insert and lock a locking hitch pin with which to secure its receiver extension. A straight-thru locking pin wouldn't work, but this swivel head locking pin, with it's 90 degrees different end latch came to the rescue. It gave the access needed to lock the extension, it feels solid, and has a heavy duty weather protection cap. Another super thing about it is the ease with which it locks. Leave the key in it and shove the pin shaft into the latch, and CLICK--it's locked. Unlocking is just as simple. 365179

Hitch cover looks great. Service from etrailer is second to none. Great communication and fast shipping. Will definitely be a return customer. 366153

Thank you for checking in. I really like the hitch cover...the only problem is all of the yellow s have fallen out and the black is starting to come out as well. I know this is not your fault and your service has been great. The lock I purchased works really well.

I haven't used this yet, but I have tested it and it fits perfectly with my hitch setup on my 2014 Dodge Durango and looks nice. I like the cover to keep the key hole from getting ice in it since I will be traveling on the road in the winter. 191618

Ask the Experts about this Master Lock Hitch Locks

Do you have a question about this Hitch Lock?


  • Keyed Alike Masterlock Hitch Lock Recommendation
  • Yes, you will need Master Lock Hitch Lock # 1480DAT. This lock can be keyed alike by selecting keyed alike from the drop down menu by the add to cart button and then entering the quantity of locks you need. The Masterlock Hitch Lock # 1479DAT does not have a keyed-alike option so it would not work for what you are trying to do.
    view full answer...

  • Why Doesn't Masterlock Hitch Lock part # 1479DAT Have Towing Capacity
  • The Masterlock Hitch Lock part # 1479DAT does not have a specified towing capacity. Reason being that rarely does the hitch pin bare the weight of the trailer it's towing. The tongue weight of the trailer binds the ball mount up in the hitch which provides nearly all of the horizontal resistance to prevent the ball mount from sliding out.
    view full answer...

  • Fit of Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1479DAT in 2-Inch Hitch Receiver
  • The two Master Lock hitch locks you referenced, # 1479DAT for 2-Inch Hitches and # 1472DAT for 1-1/4-inch hitches, both are designed to fit those standard hitch receiver sizes. Neither one uses or needs a sleeve of any sort since they are each sized to fit the widths of these two hitches. Both are chrome-plated steel for corrosion resistance, both include a weather-resistant snap-on cover to protect the lock mechanism and both come with 2 keys. I have linked product videos for both.

  • Trailer Hitch Pin Lock for a 2009 Ford Explorer with Little Space to Use a Lock
  • I have not heard of this exact issue before on any vehicle. Certainly, you can use a hitch pin/lock in any orientation that works for you.
    view full answer...

  • What is the Pin Diameter for Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, # 1479DAT
  • The Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, # 1479DAT, has a pin diameter of 5/8 inches. On a 2 inch trailer hitch the pin hole is going to take a 5/8 inch diameter. On a 1-1/4 inch hitch it will use a 1/2 inch diameter pin. I have included a link to a video review of this lock for you.

  • Is the Master Lock EZ Access Swivel Head Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1479DAT Available Keyed Alike
  • I would recommend the Master Lock Stainless Steel receiver Lock, item # 1480DAT, for a keyed alike hitch lock that is durable and can withstand the elements. There is a drop down box on the product page where you can select keyed alike and then enter the quantity you need. At this time the Master Lock EZ Access Swivel Head Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, item # 2854DAT, is not offered keyed alike. I have included a link to out hitch locks that can be purchased keyed alike for you to review.

  • Hitch Lock for 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • The issue is that threaded locks like the HitchMate # HE6001 are specific to certain accessories; in this case the HitchMate is certain Advantage bike racks. You never mentioned if you have a 1-1/4" or 2" receiver but it sounds like the 5/8" diameter the bolts is the problem from what I can gather, as opposed to the length, which would indicate you have a 1-1/4" receiver. We do not carry Solvit so there is no guarantee a standard lock will work but the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for 2 Receiver with Hitch Receiver Cover
  • I have the perfect solution to secure your Spurs Hitch Receiver Cover # HTCC2223 and any other receiver mounted accessories you may want to secure; take a look at the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Swivel Head Design # 1479DAT . This lock will work on your 2" hitch receiver and the swiveling head makes it easy to maneuver so that unlocking is a breeze. This lock comes with 2 keys and the key-retaining design prevents "false locks" - meaning your key can't be removed unless lock...

  • Will Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Fit the Curt Trailer Hitch C13149
  • The Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1479DAT will work great with the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13149. The Curt trailer hitch has a 2 inch hitch receiver and the Master Lock hitch lock is designed to work with 2 inch hitch receivers. This hitch pin lock has an inside pin length of 2-3/4 inches and a 5/8 inch pin diameter. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13149 is confirmed to fit your 2006 Toyota RAV4. I have attached an installation video of this hitch on a 2007 RAV4 for you.

  • Will the Master Lock Swivel Head Hitch Lock Fit on a 2010 Ford Explorer 2 Inch Receiver
  • Yes, the Master Lock Swivel Head Receiver Lock, # 1479DAT, will work with the 2 inch receiver on your 2010 Ford Explorer. This lock is designed to fit all 2 inch trailer hitches and is also designed to work with OEM trailer hitches that have limited clearance for a hitch pin because the hitch pin hole sits close to the hitch crosstube.

  • Does the Trailer Hitch Lock # e98880 Have Rubber Grips on Each End
  • The black rubber grip is just on the one end of trailer hitch lock # e98880. The other end has a rubber cap that covers the key hole but no rubber around the rest of the locking piece. Master Lock hitch lock # 1479DAT is more like what you have described.

  • Can I Tow A 2018 Chevy Equinox Using A Maxx Tow Dual Hitch MT70070
  • The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-8 that you referenced is designed for flat towing vehicles and an additional accessory like a bike rack, for example, with the additional 2 x 2" opening. It does provide an 8" drop and you will not need an additional receiver to accomplish this. It allows your tow bar to set level as you flat tow the vehicle. Hitch pins and clips are not included so if you need, the Curt Pin and Clip For Class III, IV and V Trailer Hitch # C21500 is...
