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

Really good and cool looking hitch lock, service from trailer is always excellent, have purchased several products for my vehicles there, always great quality and superb costumer service.. 475613

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

While the product aesthetic looks are pleasing and looked cool at first and as much as I greased it to prevent corrosion, the actual lock mechanism inside where the shaft insert basically seized up making this lock completely useless. This happened within six months of use. I ended up buying a generic one from etrailer instead and of course, it works. I don't know if Masterlock's quality is the same as in the past. Certainly not for the price paid originally. 730628

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

Ask the Experts about this Master Lock Hitch Locks

  • 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...

The tongue weight capacity is 2,400 lbs and 2,400 lbs when used with weight distribution. This hitch is designed to be used on trucks without a 10 inch step bumper. This is a Class V hitch and has a 2 inch receiver opening. Another Class V hitch that may work for you if your truck has the 10 inch step bumper is part # C15317.

  • Can Multiple Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Locks # 1480DAT be Keyed Alike
    You can get multiple locks of part # 1480DAT keyed alike. What you will need to do is locate the box next to the picture that says keyed alike or keyed unique. Change it to read keyed alike.

  • Can Locking Pins Be Used With B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount
    I spoke with my contact at B&W about locking pins for the Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B. He confirmed that pins can be used in the ball mount, but they need to be able to span the hitch, have a diameter of 5/8 inches, and be rated for 10,000 pounds. I found the longer of the 2 pins in the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # AM3492 to span the width of the Tow & Stow # BWTS10048B. I have attached some photos I took showing the adjustment pin lock in the...

  • What Hitch Locks Are Good For Resisting Rust And Corrosion
    Yes, you are correct the best hitch lock to prevent rust and corrosion is the stainless steel lock. The stainless steel locks will not corrode. The Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Stainless Steel Flush Design, # e98882, is one of our top sellers. The price difference is only a few dollars from the chrome to the stainless steel so it is definitely the better buy. The other choice for a stainless steel lock is the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, # 1480DAT, it is also stainless...

  • 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.

  • 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...

    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch for the 2009 Nissan Versa part # 11348, will fit on your 2009 Nissan Versa Hatchback. This hitch is a Class I hitch and has a 200 lb tongue weight limit and a 2,000 lb gross trailer weight, as long as your trailer is under those limits this hitch should work great. You will also want to check the manufacturers towing recommendations for your Versa, so you will not exceed the weight that your vehicle should tow. Here are a few other items you may need to...

  • Will Master Lock Hitch Pin Work with B&W Tow & Stow Adjustable Ball Mount
    Because of the large span required to secure the ball mount of the B&W Tow and Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10048B, the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1480DAT will not work to secure the ball mount to the shank. The span of the # 1480DAT hitch pin lock is not long enough to secure the ball mount to the shank.

  • 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.

  • 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 # e98880 that has a 2-5/8 inch span. Then there is an extra long span on # e98881 that measures 3-5/8 inches inside width. If 3-5/8 is too long and you do not want to chance a...

  • Recommended Lock to Secure Hitch Cover to Hitch Receiver
    I recommend going with the Master Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part # 1480DAT, to secure your Yosemite Sam Hitch Cover, # PC002231, to your 2" trailer hitch. This flush-design hitch lock from Master Lock has an innovative swivel head and solid stainless steel construction which make it a great choice for securing your hitch cover to your 2" hitch receiver. If you have a 1-1/4" hitch receiver use # 1472DAT. I have included video reviews of these receiver locks for you to check out.

    Locking the Swagman XC Cross Country 2-Bike Wheel Mount Rack, item # S64650, to the hitch will require the Locking Threaded Hitch Pin for Swagman Hitch Racks, item # S64029, which is specifically made for the racks that fit 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch hitch receivers. The Stainless Steel Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Trailer Hitches, item # 1480DAT, will not fit bike racks with threaded anti-rattle hitch pins.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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!

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 #e98881.

    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.

  • What is Class Rating of Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock
    Trailer hitch pins and receiver locks, such as the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1480DAT that you referenced, do not typically have a listed Class rating or weight capacity. This is simply because they are built with extreme weight bearing capabilities that can handle any weight that would be put on them (regardless of the trailer hitch's weight capacity). If you see a Class rating listed on a hitch pin or lock, this is simply in reference to the receiver size (1-1/4 inch, 2...

    The Master Lock locking hitch pin # 1469DAT is likely going to fit your 2008 Toyota Sequoia with factory installed trailer hitch. This lock is designed for 2-1/2 inch hitches so it is very long, the inside span that actually goes through the receiver is 3-1/4 inches long. Measure the width of your receiver on the outside (from pin to pin hole) and if less than 3-1/4 inches long it will fit. You likely have a 2 inch trailer hitch. If so then pin # 1480DAT would be a better fit. It has...
