Video Transcript for Master Lock Hitch Locks - Standard Pin Lock - 1480DAT Review

Today well be reviewing part number 1480DAT. This is the Master Lock trailer hitch receiver lock for two inch trailer hitches. Its made from nice stainless steel construction. The trailer hitch receiver lock is used in place of your standard hitch pin and clip to help prevent theft of a ball mount or accessories such as cargo carriers and bike racks. Its patented. The stainless steel swivel head is a convenient thing to have, 360 degrees.

That way its simple and very easy to access depending on your application. It does have a brass keyway with aluminum casting that conveniently faces toward you and not off to the side. The key retaining design prevents false locks, so that means that the key cannot be removed unless the lock is secured. Its a push to lock mechanisms and makes locking easy and fool proof. When you slide it in the lock clicks into place and you can actually hear it and feel it when the lock is engaged.

Its made from a corrosion resistant stainless steel. It has a weather resistant snap cap here on the end thats going to help dirt and moisture from getting into the keyway. It also comes with two keys made from a rugged construction that complies with ASTM testing standards for exposure to salt and UV rays. It is designed to work with a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. The pin diameter is five-eighths of an inch and the inside pin length span is going to give us a measurement of 2 inch measuring from this point here to this point here.

Now well go ahead and show you how it installs real quickly and how to use it. Weve got our hitch here and we want to secure our ball mount, so were going to place it in and line up our pin holes. We can simply just take our lock, place it through and then we can snap it on the other side. At that point were ready to remove our key and place the protective weather cover over our key entry there. Just like that, the ball mount is secured.

Its not going to go anywhere. Thanks to that Master Lock its going to help prevent theft from whatever accessory that we have attached into our hitch.Thats going to complete todays review of part number 1480DAT. Thats the Master Lock trailer hitch receiver lock for two inch trailer hitches. .

Received 2 keyed alike very quickly. Tried them and they were both a little stiff. WD 40 should solve that plus a little use. Nice and heavy weight and should perform like the name implies "Master Lock". Much more substantial feeling than the cheaper/lighter imports. 221783

by:

Nice solid lock, diameter fits perfectly our 2 inch hitch with no wobble. Key is easy to use, just turn and the lock pulls off and the key stays in so it won't get lost. To put it back on just push the lock onto the end of the post and pull the key straight out. Works much better than previous locks I have used. It is nice and sturdy with a stainless steel shaft that slides through the hitch post easily. 283696

Secure, lock operation is smooth. Missed 5 stars because cap sometimes comes off, leading to potential debris entering lock. Doesn't happen often but cover could fit more securely. 315508

Master lock has done an excellent job on the design and function of this hitch lock. After doing a number of research on varies types and models, this was the top choice. Right now I'm just using it for my hitch cover. I don't want my cover getting legs and walk away. It fits perfectly on my 2012 Dodge Durango Crew factory 2" hitch receiver. The next best thing about this Lock. I brought it from you guys (Etrailer). The price was right and shipping was fast. From here on out I will only buy all of my hitch and roof rack assessories from etrailer. Great job guys and keep the great work. 73178

This lock makes it so much easier to unlock given the 90 degree angle of the key lock. I would highly recommend to those who have car hitches like mind that are inconvenient to lock/unlock. 55270

Well as a truck camper owner the big, big thing is always getting up into the rig. These steps are highly talked of online. I like them and knew they would solve my entering problem. They did....but they are very awkward and bulky to travel with.... I actually think they should make them break down for tvavel... etrailer.com.....seemed to work hard to ship my order fast and etrailer seems to be very willing to work hard at reasonable prices... .So, I must try to help etrailer on this one honest mistake..... When my order shipped, etrailer combined my two items..one BIG BuLKY. Awkwad set of steps.....with my hitch-lock that goes in it.... Well the awkward steel steps ripped and gashed the cardboard box in about 3 or 4 areas. There was no packing foam or bunched news paper... This poor master hitch lock hadn't a chance.....it rattled around on the steps and got bashed out of its little box......and out of its internal bag....and its little set of keys likely went bye bye out one of 4 big box gashes..... So, now I need to... somehow get new keys to this lock...it is useless as is..... If etrailer can send keys the key number is on the box as : 1480 KA. Key:0501. If etrailer sends me a working hitch-lock with keys... my problem is solved... Aside of this unfortunate happening, I am happy with the price and quality and service that eTrailer has delivered...I just need this one little issue fixed to give etrailer 5 Stars.! Thank You for your concern Chas Youngs Poughkeepsie, NY 420013

Quality theft deterrent. Available in “keyed alike”, very convenient with multiple vehicles & hitches & less keys on my key ring. Great design how the brass lock cylinder hangs downward, to keep water and debris out, also has a rubber cover. The lock cylinder easily rotates to face the user to insert the key, no more laying on the ground fumbling to find the key hole. I like the 1480 that has the small blue grip that doesn’t interfere with the safety chains/cables. The 2866 hitch pin just has a bend in it, and gets in the way of safety chains/cables. 460007

I'm very pleased with the quality and precision craftsmanship of the Master Lock 2" hitch pins (I ordered seven keyed alike) and have placed an order for two more 2 1/2" pins with the same key code. Master Lock hitch pins. The service from etrailer was exemplary as my order was filed and shipped the same day I placed the order. 643906

Works great, no issues. This lock makes it easy to access the keyhole. Our previous straight lock took two people and some tricky hand positions to get the key inserted, because of the tight spacing around the hitch reciever and electrical trailer connector on the back of our Audi Q7. I'd recommend this to anyone with a cramped setup around their hitch. 641549

My order consist of products from well known companys - Curt and Master Locks which are all Quality Made. I bought these items before picking up my Trailer,so to have ready for hookup. After looking at products ,they are new from the companys and ready to be used.I may have to update my Review after using products for 6 -12 months.,I did buy alike keys not knowing i couldn't get same keys for Hitch and Coupler,so i called Etrailer and they will Credit me back that amount.,Other than this no problem,yet. I'm thinking these products will last me for a very long time. 593770

I like the fact that I now only need to carry 1 key set to open two of these locks; but it's a little short to use on my 2014 Toyota Tacoma -- is just won't lock because the shank is about 2-3mm shorter than what I need. Now I have an extra 2" hitch lock that I can't use for what I purchased it for. 540622


Comments

This lock will not work with some factory 2 trailer hitches that have an outside width wider than 2-3/4. Toyota OEM trailer hitches have that extra piece on the outside of the hitch and they require a different, longer locking hitch pin such part #1469DAT.

Do you have a question about this Hitch Lock?


  • Locking Pins for a B&W Tow & Stow
  • The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B does not come with a keyed locking pin to secure the shank to the receiver. For that I recommend the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Trailer Hitches # 1480DAT. If you want a locking pin for the ball mount, you would need the longer of the two pins that comes with the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # AM3492. I have added links to video reviews of each product for you.

  • What is the Coupler Height of the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT
  • I spoke with my contact at Malone who said that the coupler height of the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT is 15". When we installed the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76138 on a 2017 Mazda CX-5 the coupler height (from the ground to the top of the inside of the receiver) measured 13". If this is the case with your 2018 model then that means you will need a ball mount with a 2" rise. The Curt Fusion Ball Mount # C45155 is a great option as it has a 2-1/4" rise (the...

  • Hitch Pin Locks and Cable Needed from Master Lock

  • Recommended Hitch Lock to Secure Carr Hitch Mounted Step
  • To secure the Carr Hitch Mounted Step # CARR183242 to your trailer hitch I recommend using the Master Lock # 1480DAT for 2" hitches as it is one of the more well-received locks we carry, which you can see in the customer reviews section of the lock's product page. As for the sticker, it does not light up, it is simply a reflective red sticker; when you fold that part it down it acts as actual step. I've added links to video reviews of both parts for you to take a look at.

The price difference is only a few dollars from the chrome to the stainless steel so it is definitely the better buy.

  • Trailer Hitch Lock and Coupler Latch Lock Keyed Alike for a 2015 Toyota Tundra with Factory Hitch
  • I have a solution for you that will NOT require using any additional keys though it may not be what you expect. Since the factory Toyota hitch is so wide there are no lock sets that have a pin long enough. So what I recommend for the hitch lock is to use BOLT lock # BL7023584 which you can code to work with your 2015 Toyota Tundra key. Then you could use BOLT coupler latch lock # BL7025289 and code it to your truck key as well. No new keys, 2 new locks. That's pretty sweet!

  • Ideal Hitch Ball Height for a 2008 Toyota Highlander V6
  • The hitch ball height you need depends entirely on the specific trailer you will be towing. There is no ideal height that would be universal for a certain vehicle. Trailers come in all different heights, so you will need to take some measurements to determine the correct rise or drop you will need on your ball mount. This is what will allow you to put the hitch ball in the correct placement for hooking up your trailer. First, you will need to measure from the ground to the top of...

The span of the # 1480DAT hitch pin lock is not long enough to secure the ball mount to the shank.

  • How to Determine if the Master Lock Hitch Lock part # 1480DAT will fit a Hitch or Not
  • Some vehicles (usually Toyota), have hitch tubes that are wider than most standard hitches. In those cases the part # 1480DAT would not be long enough to fit. What you will need to do is measure the outside width of your hitch to find out if this will fit. If the width of your hitch ends up less than 2-3/4 inches this will fit and work well. If you need a wider hitch the Tow Ready part # TR63253 has a usable span of 3-1/2 inches.

  • How to Determine the Hitch Size for Hitch locks
  • To determine the size of the receiver lock you will need you need to determine the size (see link below) of the receiver on your vehicle and you also need to measure the overall width of the outside of the receiver at the hitch pin hole. If you have a class I or class II receiver you will need a 1-1/4 inch receiver lock and if you have a class III receiver or larger you will need a 2 inch receiver, then you need to make sure the inside width of the receiver lock is at least as wide as the...

  • Difference Between Keyed Alike and Keyed Unique for Hitch Coupler Locks
  • Some hitch manufacturers give us the ability to order their hitch locks with matching key numbers so that if you had several hitch locks but only wanted one key to remember you could order them all keyed alike and only need the one key. If that is what you want you would need to select the keyed alike feature on the MasterLock lock part # 1480DAT that you mentioned. If you don't need them keyed alike then leaving the selection as keyed unique would be fine.

  • 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,...

You can take a measurement and check. If the outside to outside width of the receiver tube at the hitch pin hole is less than 2-5/8 inches, the Master Lock # 1480DAT lock wouldn't fit. We have a lock that's specially designed to work with the Tundra and Tacoma OEM hitches, it is part # RH5-XL.

  • Hitch Lock Does Not Open But The Key Turns
  • I consulted with my contact at the Master Lock company and was advised of the following steps to help resolve your issue with the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock not working # 1480DAT. First ensure you are using the correct key. If you have used any lubricants with the lock, blow it out with canned air. Re-lube the lock with PTFE lube formula (such as Tri-flow). Work your key back into the lock to open it.

  • Lock For B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B
  • The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B do not come with a keyed locking pin to secure the shank to the receiver. For that I recommend the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Trailer Hitches # 1480DAT. If you want a locking pin for the ball mount, you would need the longer of the two pins that comes with the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # AM3492. I have added links to video reviews of each product for you.

  • The pins used in the Roadmaster base plate kit # 1424-1 are 5/8 inch diameter pins. The Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, # 1480DAT, is also a 5/8 inch diameter pin. So it will fit the same holes as the regular pins. The inside pin length on the lock is 2-3/4 inches. The widest part of the end of the pin, the blue part, is 1.22 inches in diameter so a little less than 1-1/4 inches. That means that the blue part will stick up closer to that bolt by 0.59 inches.

  • How to Correct Key That Will Not Turn in Master Lock 1480DAT Hitch Lock
  • When a key will not turn in a lock with an item like Master Lock # 1480DAT sometimes a very gentle tap with a small hammer will help to fully seat the key in the tumbler. You can also try a light sanding of the key's teeth with fine grit sandpaper (500-grit wet type is what I recommend) to remove any tiny spurs that could be the cause for the problem.
