Video Transcript for Tow Ready Hitch Locks - Universal Anti-Rattle Lock - 63201 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 63201. This is the Tow Ready J-Pin, as well as the Barrel Lockset for 2 inch trailer hitches. The J-Pin is going to secure your hitch mounted accessory to your vehicle. Once this is installed, it's also going to reduce the vibration from within the hitch. Now this is going to be made from a steel construction, has a really nice protective finish on it to resist rust and corrosion and it's going to be ideal for your hitch mounted accessories, especially when needing to lock them to your hitch for security purposes. The threaded portion is going to help eliminate or drastically reduce the amount of vibration from within the hitch. This does require that your hitch is J-Pin compatible.

Your hitch must have two pin holes, the larger one being 5/8ths of an inch for the larger portion of the pin. The smaller one measuring 17/32nds of an inch for the little nib here at the end of the J-Pin. It's going to come with the J-Pin, you're going to get the nut, which just threads onto this portion here once you have this installed through your hitch and accessory. It's going to come with a lock, just goes over the end there. That uses a ball barrel design, so it's got three little balls on the inside of this tube here. Once the lock goes around the portion right here of the pin, you push this down, it pushes those, the balls out into that location on the pin, so it engages and it will not come off unless you remove it with the key.

It's a really nice secure lock that goes on the end of the pin and that's going to lock it to your hitch. You're going to get two keys as well as the included wrench to tighten down the nut. The lock has a nice little dust cap on it that goes over the lock core, keeping out any dirt or grim from entering the body of the lock, so that it's going to be protected from rust and corrosion as well. Now this will work with hollow or solid shank ball mounts and hitch accessories. A few measurements to go over with you real quick. The overall length with the lock installed, that's going to give us a measurement of 8 5/8ths of an inch.

If we take the lock off, the overall length of the pin is now going to measure 6 3/4 of an inch. From the end of the pin to the threaded portion, measuring here at the top of the threaded portion, that' going to give us a measurement of about 2 1/2 inches. Then from this point here on the J portion of the pin to the very end of the pin, that's going to give us a measurement of about 5 1/8th of an inch. Now I do want to go ahead and show you how this would install in your hitch. I have a J-Pin compatible hitch here today, as well as a hollow shank ball mount. We're going to place our ball mount inside of our hitch.

Then we're going to line up our pin holes and we can simply take our J-Pin, place it through and I'll turn it sideways so you can see how that engages both pin holes. Just like that and then on this side, we need to install the nut. It's always nice to go ahead and get this as tight as you can by hand and then on a majority of applications, you'd be able to use the included wrench. On this particular hitch, it does not give us enough clearance to use that wrench and so we're simply going to use a 15/16th inch socket with a wrench, just to go ahead and finish tightening that down. Now without it tight, you can see, I'll back this up just a little bit. You can see that we have a lot of play within the hitch. Now with it all tightened down, you can see that pretty much all of that play has been removed, and that's going to drastically reduce the vibration that we normally experience within the hitch. Once you're at this point, all we have left to do is to install the lock. It simply goes onto the end of the pin and you push this portion down to engage it and it's going to be locked on there. All you have to do is close the dust cap and everything is set to go. That's going to do it for our review of part number 63201. This is the Tow Ready J-Pin for 2 inch trailer hitches.

As a locking hitch pin this works great. As a stabilizer it works just fair due to the single lock down location. Up and down movements are reduced but not eliminated. Overall good performance. 692006

Innovative product. Works well with bike rack which previously rattled and bounced excessively. This appears to tighten everything well. 59536

Great price on sale. Very well constructed and very heavy gauge steel. I plan to install the hitch next week on my new 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee). Per thgeir videos and instructions, the install will truly be easy. (I plan to install the purchased wiring kit later.) My only issue is that the shipping carton needs to be better reinforced. The flanges of the htich had broken through the box and the paint was scrapped off in spots down to bare metal. No damage to the hitch itself at all but I spray painted those spots with black paint to ensure they did not rust prematurely. Very happy with the quality of the J-Pin lock#63201 as well. Same for the wiring kit. 681696

This product is great. It completely eliminated the loose hitch problem that caused my bicycles to sway back and forth on their hitch mounted bike rack. What was even better was the help I got from eTrailer.com in showing me what was needed and shipping it quickly. I would never have found this product without your help. Since you had already helped me with my trailer hitch, this time I knew to ask you first. Keep up the good work...I'll be back. 13279

This was recommended because I have a Draw Tite hitch (two holes in the receiver) and was having trouble getting the original pin to lock, the bike rack was wobbly in the receiver. Turns out there is a nut welded to the *inside* of the bike rack so the J-pin wouldn't even go all the way through. If I had been given better instructions for installing the lock pin that came with the rack I wouldn't have even needed this. Company was quick and easy to work with on returning it though so there's that. 688685

Works as expected! Can tow a empty dolly without any sway. If you have a huge amount of play be warned that the hook end will give your receiver a bit of an angle. Didn't seem to affect towing for me though! 643963

This is a great, secure locking pin. Holds tight. Easy to use. I hope replacement rubber caps are available. I'll use it for my hitch ball as well as the step unit. 538487

Simple to install, everything needed is included. And now my trailer ball and bar has ZERO slack...it feels like it is welded straight into my frame. Those rattles and unexpected clunks going down the road are a thing of the past! Shown being used on a 2017 Subaru Outback (that also has a hitch from etrailer.) 400630

Great product, the only fault is the cap fell off the lock. Wish I could get another one, other than that it is great.

Nice design and fit perfectly with my Draw-Tite Max-Frame hitch. I haven't tried it with a trailer yet but it seems like it will work well. 700186

I love this device. After towing with a hitch that wasn't compatible with the J Pin device and noticing a lot of rattling, I upgraded to one that is compatible with the J Pin. World of difference as now the attachments going into the hitch are solid with no movement. 647567

This hitch was installed on my 2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i Limited. The website is fantastic and makes finding the correct products for your vehicle very easy. The hitch arrived in only a few days and came complete with all the necessary installation accessories. The hitch comes with fish wire for the frame bolts so you don't need to fuss with buying fish wire. Some reviews stated that you can go in from the inside of the vehicle but this is totally unnecessary and more work. Just follow the instructions, with exception of the muffler heat shield. You can drill 1/2" holes through the heat shield in the dimpled areas corresponding to where the instructions tell you to cut out the heat shield (see some of the other reviews for more detail on this). These holes allow you to securely fasten the heat shield over the hitch using the hitch bolts. Make sure you have a torque wrench and an 11/16" deep socket to tighten the frame bolts. I would also recommend removing the muffler which is very simple. Lube the muffler mounts with WD-40 to facilitate the removal of the muffler. You will save at least $300 installing this yourself. 485071

Seems like a solid product, but be careful which hitch and bike rack combination you're using it with. For example, I have a hitch that it works with (Hidden Hitch) but it does not work with the bike rack that I use with that hitch (Thule)....so I had to send this pin back. Call eTrailer to check on your specific hitch/rack combination before ordering this. 84426

I really like this product. When it is not being used to secure a hitch cargo carrier, I use it to leave a ball mount/hitch ball in permanence on my vehicle, so that people keep their distance when parking. I had originally spayed it with white lithium spray grease (on the exterior only; not in the mechanism or lock) to reduce corrosion, but road salt has been eating it a bit, and got into the key hole (because the flimsy rubber cover fell off a couple of months after purchase). So, I dipped the whole thing in degreaser to to remove the lithium grease, then dipped it in hot water 3-4 times to try to dissolve the road salt that got into the key hole, then submerged the whole thing in 70% isopropyl alcohol to help remove the remaining salt and remove some of the water from the first rinses, then submerged it in 99% isopropyl alcohol to remove the remaining water (from the 70:30 isopropanol:water), then put it for a couple of hours in the oven at 225 Farenheit (water boils at 212 Farenheit) to evaporate every last bit of water, and finally lubricated the lock with graphite. So, for those of you who live in or drive through areas where road salt is used and want to avoid this thorough clean-up, I would suggest you take a thick plastic bag, put some silica gel cat litter (to absorb any moisture in the plastic bag), put the bag over the lock, and seal the bag with a tie-wrap or a couple of rubber bands. That should keep humidity and dust out of the mechanism. 645186

Class 3 receiver hitch works great on our 2017 Subaru Outback. Perfect fit and the light kit is custom to the vehicle. The install process was easy and the how to video"s at etrailer took all the uncertainty out of the job. Went on just as advertised and I was ready to roll. The hitch blends in with the rear of the Outback and is functional and good looking. Thanks for all the good work making the ordering and installing so easy. 464660

Trailer Hitch and light assembly are working just fine .. a great addition to the Subaru Outback and you a a very popular person when you have an all wheel drive with a trailer hitch .. renting log splitters .. garden trailers, for pine straw southern thing .. and of course trailering our 14 sailboat to the lake. I have a friend with an Outback and I gave him standing offer to install a hitch if he wants one .. we will see. Thanks for the great products and helpful instructional videos Best to you in the New Year.

As promised this product eliminates the rattle in the 2 inch to 1 1/4 inch adapter I installed for my 1 1/4 inch bike rack. However, there is still a pretty noticeable wobble in the bike rack. The bike rack is bolted into the adapter, so the wobble is at the hitch and the adaptor. I plan to try putting some sort of shim between the 2 inch hitch and the 1 1/4 inch adapter. Hopefully, this will eliminate the wobble, which I consider unacceptable. 565200

I would like to tell you about my experience with etrailer.com. I am a return customer because I always find what I need at reasonable prices, quick and inexpensive shipping charges. I ordered this lock for a 1999 GMC Safari to fit my Draw Tite hitch. It is very well made. Fits perfectly and no wobble at all. I highly recommend etrailer.com. I feel they are a very good company to deal with because I get personal service which is uncommon these days. 399525

Have only opened the box and not yet had the occasion to use the new trailer J-pin. It appears to be well made and of high quality. Of particular note, it was a pleasure actually opening the package. I had no need to get out the tin-snips or a hand saw or a hunting knife. The package stayed closed until I needed it to open and then popped apart as if it was just waiting for my request. Thank you eTrailer! 280162

  • Will The Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin Part # 63201 Rust?
    I have a stainless steel locking anti-rattle hitch pin for you but we do not have a Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin in a stainless steel finish. The Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches part # 63201 is made of steel with a brushed finish. A brushed steel finish will still provide you with rust protection however, if your main concern is rust prevention, I recommend a stainless steel finish.

  • How to Determine if Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin is Compatible with Trailer Hitch Receiver
    If the trailer hitch receiver on your 2006 F-150 features an additional, smaller hole on the receiver, it is extremely likely the Tow Ready J-Pin # 63201 referenced in your question will work perfectly. This second hole on the hitch is designed specifically for use with this type of J-pin. The distance between the two holes on your hitch receiver should measure right at 1 inch, center to center. The larger hole will have a 5/8 inch diameter and the smaller hole should measure 17/32...

  • Is Nut of Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset # 63201 a Lock Nut
    The nut of the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset # 63201 that you referenced is not a locknut. But as long as you snug it down good and tight it's not going to back off. We've not had an issue with a customer who had his want to back out.

  • Recommended Locking J-Pin For Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
    The J-Pin I recommend for your Draw-Tite Hitch, part # 75916 is part # 63201. The second hole on the hitch is designed for an anti-rattle pin like # 63201. This pin comes with the lock to secure it and prevent theft and a wrench to tighten the pin to reduce rattle. I have attached a link to a demonstration video for this pin you can check out.

  • Drilling a Hole in a Receiver to Accept a J-Pin Anti-Rattle Device
    Drilling a hole in your hitch will void the manufacturers warranty. That being said you can purchase other styles of anti-rattle devices that will work very well and you will not have to modify the hitch to install them. I would recommend the SoftRide anti-rattle hitch lock, part # SR25219, this lock has a nut that installs inside the hollow draw bar or shank of the hitch accessory and then, when the hitch pin lock is threaded into the hitch, the ball mount or shank is wedged to the side...

  • Is J-Pin Stabilization Pin Compatible With Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • 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,...

  • J-Pin Locking Hitch Pin is Too Large to Fit Allen Bike Rack on a 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The main part of the J-pin lock # 63201 should be a 5/8 inch diameter and fit in the larger hole on the trailer hitch. The standard size diameter pin for a Class III bike rack and hitch is 5/8 inches. If the bike rack you have uses a threaded pin or fits both 1-1/4 and 2 inch trailer hitches then the pin hole would be smaller and you would have to use the pin that came with the bike rack.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Device And Lock For 2014 Toyota Tundra Trailer Hitch Receiver
    On your 2014 Toyota Tundra, the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches, # 63201, is compatible only if you have the dual hole receiver. If not, I recommend the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - 2-5/8" Span, # 63232, which will work without the extra hole in the receiver.

  • Lubricating a Locking Hitch Pin
    For lubricating any lock, a dry lubricant like powdered graphite is recommended. Using grease and oil or spray lubricants like WD 40 can actually attract dirt and grime and make the lock cylinder sticky after a time.

  • Why Does Draw Tite Hitch Have Two Pin Holes
    Draw Tite has two holes on the opening. One is for the hitch pin and the other is for their J-hook style anti-rattle device part # 63201 which wraps around and grabs the hitch by the second hole. This hole is not for use with a bike rack. Check out the review video I attached for the 63201 to see how it works.

  • Diameter of the J-Pin Holes on Trailer Hitches
    The diameter of the hole that the J-pin style anti-rattle device # 63201 is designed to fit is 17/32 inches. Normally we don't recommend drilling the hole so that the device can fit the hitch, but if it's a fabricated hitch there wouldn't be any warranties that would get voided.

  • Which Hole On My Hitch Opening is the Hitch Pin
    Sounds like you have a hitch that is set up for a j-pin style of anti-sway like the part # 63201. The rearmost hole on the hitch opening will be a little bit larger and that is the correct hole to use for the hitch pin of your bike rack. Most anti-rattle devices for bike racks are specific to that manufacturer and model of bike rack. If you email me back with the bike rack you have I can see what we offer that would work.

  • Different Pin Hole Depths on Class III Trailer Hitch Accesories
    The two pin holes that you are seeing, on Draw-Tite, Reese and Hidden Hitches are not what you think. They install another, smaller hole, other than the receiver pin hole for the J-Pin anti-rattle device. The part number is Tow Ready # 63201. The standard pin hole depth on a Class III hitch is normally 2-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the face of the receiver. This is not a hard and fast rule and may be slightly different between hitch models and manufacturers.

  • Using a Yakima SKS on Other Products
    I have a solution for you, however, Yakima's SKS cores are only compatible with Yakima's products. You can't cross use them Yakima does offer an SKS compatible hitch lock for its bike racks as part # Y07235 that is compatible with all Yakima pins, if the bike rack doesn't already have some form of locking hitch pin.

Our most popular barrel lock that can be keyed alike is our etrailer.com Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches, part # e98880.

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin # 63201
    Hitch pins, including the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin # 63201 you referenced, do not have weight ratings because they are designed to hold the weight of the receiver sizes they fit. Since the Draw-Tite # 75950 Class III trailer hitch is a 2" receiver this unit will be able to handle the weight capacities of the Draw-Tite hitch on your 2015 Audi Q7.

  • How to Free Stuck Lock Cylinder of Draw-Tite J-Pin Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock
    Graphite is a good choice to keep the lock from seizing up, but not the best choice when it's already seized up. I'd try giving the lock a good soak with an aerosol penetrating lubricant like PB Blaster. Wait a short time, then insert the key and give the end of the key a couple of sharp raps with a mallet. The idea is to deliver a quick shock to the lock cylinder, that will hopefully free up the stuck tumblers and allow the cylinder to rotate. If that doesn't work, you'll need to try...

    The Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset, # 63201, does not have a towing capacity. The 5/8 inch pin is made of steel, and it will take more weight than most trailer hitches and non-commercial vehicles are capable of. This pin is designed to work with 2 inch trailer hitch receivers.

  • Is Pin and Clip Needed With Stabilization Pin for Curt Hitch on 2017 Honda CR-V?
    No, you do not need a pin and clip such as # PC3 for your Curt hitch C13306 if you are using the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset # 63201. The lockset will take the place of your pin and clip while also working as an anti-rattle device.

  • Center to Center Distance Between Hitch Pin Hole and J-Pin Hole
    The center to center distance between the hitch pin hole and the J-pin hole of a hitch designed to work with the J-Pin lock part # 63201 will be right at 1 inch. I went out and measured a hitch we had in stock to get that dimension for you.

  • Will the Tow Ready J-Pin Work with the RockyMounts SplitRail
    The Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel part # 63201 is not specifically tested with the RockyMounts SplitRail 2 Bike Platform Rack but after looking them both over, I see absolutely no reason as to why they would not work with one another. The reason you read that it will not work with a Thule bike rack is because most of them use a threaded hitch pin, not a smooth one like the SplitRail has. There will be no compromise in safety.

    Since the Hopkins # HM40975 is getting in the way of the J-Pin # 63201 with the Draw-Tite # 76031 on your 2018 Nissan Pathfinder you'll need to use a different mounting bracket like the Curt No-Drill # C57202. Other than that you'll need to use a different locking hitch pin like part # 63232 or part # SHP2082.

  • Can Smaller Hole On Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Be Used For Bike Carrier Hitch Pin
    The smaller forward hole on your trailer hitch receiver is designed to accommodate a J-pin stabilization pin like part # 63201. The larger part of the J-pin is inserted through the larger hole that is furthest from the receiver end and the smaller end of the pin is inserted in the smaller hole.
