Video Transcript for Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset Review

Speaker 1: Today you're going to be taking a look at the tow ready J-pin stabilization pin and barrel lock set for two-inch trailer hitches. Part number 63201.The typical issue that we may run into when we start putting accessories on our hitch, is we start driving down the road, chances are it's going to start rattling around, making a lot of noise, which can get pretty annoying. That's because there's not going to be anything holding it in place, mainly just keeping it from coming out. So that's where our J-pin stabilization device is going to come into play, because a regular pin is just meant to hold it in place. With our J-pin, we're gonna take the threaded section and go through the hitch pin hole. And then that hook here is gonna go through the secondary hole.

Then we can take the flange nut and we can thread it on to the end of it. We take our included tool, and we're gonna make sure it's nice and snug.I can already see that there's a whole lot less play in there and if I actually shake the ball mount, the whole vehicle's starting to move. Our J-pin also is going to be a locking device. So we can take our key and make sure that section is sticking out, push it all the way in, and push in on the tab. Now our ball mount or whatever other accessory we have will be nice and secure.Our J-pin's not only gonna be good for ball mounts, it's gonna be good for any kind of accessory that doesn't have a threaded hole, and that doesn't have a built in anti-rattle, like our cargo carrier here.I do wanna mention that our J-pin is only gonna work with hitches that have a secondary hole towards the back of the receiver.

They'll have a standard 5/8 pin hole, but then another smaller hole towards the receiver tube; just like we have here in our Draw Tite hitch, and some of the older hidden hitch or Reese hitches.One of the nicest things about our J-pin is the simple design and how easy it is to use. Unlike some other anti-rattle devices, like this one here, we have Let's Go Arrow, but a lot of other companies have this simple design to them. We're gonna have a block and a spring and a threaded hole. The block and spring is gonna go into your accessory so we have to compress the spring and feed the spring and block into the accessory until it lines up with the pinhole on the side. Now as you can see, it can be a little bit of a hassle sometimes, and sometimes it just doesn't wanna cooperate.

And if we have a solid shank, we're not gonna be able to use on of these.Now once you do have the block and spring in place, you would take the threaded bolt, and you insert your accessory into the hitch, and hope that it doesn't fall out. Then go through your pin hole, sliding your threaded bolt through, and you would tighten it down. And once you tighten that bolt down, it's gonna push that block and the spring, which is gonna push the accessory to one side, just like our J-pin. This particular model isn't a locking one, but there are some that are locking, so you do get the best of both worlds, of having an ant-rattle and a locking device.Again, our J-pin is just gonna be a lot easier to use. You're just gonna have to put it into our hitch pinhole, and then thread a nut on and not have to worry about putting something inside of our accessory and hoping that it doesn't fall out when we put it into our receiver.One other benefit our J-pin has over the other style ant-rattle device, is that this is gonna work with solid shanks.

We're not gonna have to put it on the inside of our accessory, and it's gonna work with virtually any accessory whether it's a hollow or solid shank.Our J-pin is gonna come with everything we need to get it in place, including a wrench, two keys, and a dust cover to keep dirt and debris out of the lock zone.Paul H. wrote in saying, "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 rattle and unexpected clunks going down the road are a thing of the past."If you're looking to get rid of that annoying rattle when you're driving down the road from the accessories inside your trailer hitch, our J-pin stabilization device is gonna be doing a great job of that, while being extremely easy to use. And that'll finish up your look as a tow ready J-pin stabilization pin and barrel lock set for two-inch trailer hitches. Part number 63201.

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

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

Looks good and solid however will not work with Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Tilting 696829



- 63201
by:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



- 63201
by:

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 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

J-pin works great ! No more rattle pulling my trailer it tightens the receiver good . Lock is nice also, we'll made! 128876

This is an easy to use lock that I thought about returning because I thought it was too much for my needs and I could get by with a cheaper product. I'm glad I didn't do that even though etrailer had processed an RMA for me with no hassles. I've had this for a year and it's stood the test of time and use. I can get it fitted in literally just a few minutes. I've attached the key as well as the keys to my trailer to the included tool which makes my process easier and finding the tool and keys in my trailer bag one simple task. 463100

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

I'm really excited about my stabilization pin. We'll be using it for our Reese Explore ProSeries 63153 Rambler cargo basket. I took it out and tested it today after it arrived. There was a fair amount of play between the cargo carrier shank and the receiver when I tugged on it, and the stabilization pin cut that down to pretty much nil. It was easy to install, and I'm excited about the locking feature. Last time we took the carrier on a road trip, I removed it and put it inside our van each night - not wanting it to be stolen. It'll be nice not having that hassle anymore. 487947

Good solid product. Nice cap over the key slot and O-ring to keep dirt out of the mechanism. One manufacturer issue. This Draw•Tite® J-Pin® Anti-Rattle Pin could not be used on a Draw Tie hitch which was pre-drilled for a J-Pin. The mounting bracket which was part of the hitch got in the way of installing the pin from one direction and from installing the lock from the other direction. 493294

I purchased the Draw-Tite hidden trailer hitch, Airlift 1000 air springs and tail light wiring kit for my 2017 AWD Sienna. Reviews were correct, the hitch looks great and you should bend the tabs during installation to get it in. I also purchased the wiring kit for trailer lights (pain to install but worth it) and the Airlift 1000 additional load supports that should help with a full load. The air springs were surprisingly easy to install especially when you are already installing the hitch and wiring kit. Recommend doing it all at once (wiring kit first, then hitch, then air lift springs). etrailer has been over the top on customer service. Shipped quick, checked after it arrived and love the website! Already placed another order for more accessories! (get the cargo bag ahead of time with free shipping if you are going to use a cargo hitch) 360094

I guess I didn't know if the hitch has two holes is enough reason to buy this product. I liked the quality of it but it just doesn't work for me, at least for now. I needed to secure my Thule Vertex 4 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting Item # TH9029XT, but now I have to find pay for Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device - THSTL2. The problem is my Bike Rack has already one of the locking mechanism, and I just need the second lock to the hitch, but can't find it here :(. I wish this point was brought up in the video so I knew what I was about to buy. 373677

My drawtite hitch looks great and fit perfectly. Only reason review isn't a perfect 5 stars is because the box arrived slightly damaged with two points of the hitch protruding out and was scuffed and had to be retouched with paint. My JPin package was also opened and parts scattered in the box and a missing security key. Connie with etrailer CS was awesome and assisted with processing a claim for a replacement part . As a repeat customer definitely appreciate the great experience as always. 714763

Quick shipping and amazingly secure packing. Some sellers send hitches in just a shrink-wrap, which causes a lot of dents and chips in shipping. Etrailer packed the hitch in heavy-duty cardboard box with custom folds inside the box so not only it was very secured from outside, but it also wouldn't move within the box. Top notch service. Great instructional videos on-site. Recommended seller!! 696804

As far as the lock and pin goes it's fine. Just be aware that it is has a 5/8" shaft. Both of my bike carriers have 1/2'' holes . 695870

  • The best trailer hitch we have for your 2019 Subaru Forester is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76271.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Device for Towing Boat Trailer
  • While we do have anti-rattle devices that are designed for use when towing, the MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp # MT70258, as you mentioned, cannot be used for this purpose. This particular device can only be used for non-trailer loads such as bike racks and cargo carriers. For an anti-rattle device that you can use while towing your boat trailer, I recommend the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061. This hitch immobilizer will eliminate rattle within the receiver with a simple bolt-on installation....

  • How to Tell if you Have the Factory Towing Package 2018 Chevrolet Equinox
  • I do have a few items you can look for that will give you an idea as to whether or not your 2018 Chevrolet Equinox came equipped with the factory tow package (K5L) or not but the only sure fire way to tell would be to obtain your VIN and contact the dealer as they would be able to confirm if your vehicle came equipped with the factory tow package. From my research, the factory towing package on your 2018 Chevrolet Equinox came with a transmission and engine oil cooler. Therefore, if...

  • Recommended Parts Needed to Tow with a 2019 Ford Flex
  • The trailer hitch that I recommend using to tow a small trailer with your 2019 Ford Flex is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75679 because it has a second, smaller, hitch pin hole that allows you to use the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset # 63201 to help keep a ball mount or accessory steady and locked. The J-Pin is useful for those accessories that don't have a locking or anti-rattle hitch pin so the ability to use this option is definitely a benefit. Then for wiring I...

  • Towing Setup For A 2015 Chrysler Town and Country
  • We have everything that you will need to tow a trailer with your 2015 Chrysler Town and Country. Your vehicle has combined wires for both the brake and turn signal lights, therefore, I recommend using a trailer wiring harness like the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # 118534 as this will work well for as you. This is a complete plug and play kit with everything needed for installation and no required hardwiring. For a trailer hitch receiver compatible...

  • Complete Towing Setup for 2016 Mazda CX-5
  • Draw-Tite Class III hitch # 76138 is a good choice for your 2016 Mazda CX-5 since it offers a higher weight capacity than Curt hitch # C13315. Please note that Curt does NOT require use of their support strap # 18050 with this hitch although they do require it for some other hitches. For a 4-pole wiring harness you can indeed use Tekonsha kit # 118563 which is compatible with your LED lighting. This wiring can be converted to the 7-way type needed for a brake controller by adding kit...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver, Cargo Carrier, and Roof Rack for 2018 Mazda CX-5
  • For your 2018 Mazda CX-5, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76138 which is a 2 inch receiver rated for up to 675 lbs tongue weight. This is an easy installation with no drilling required. I recommend using the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches # 63201 made for this hitch to give you security and anti-rattle stability for your cargo carrier. For your cargo carrier, I recommend the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153....

  • Is Rear End Sag Normal When Using MaxxTow Hitch-Mount Motorcycle Carrier MT70101
  • Thank you for your purchase of the Draw-Tite 2-inch hitch # 76034 and the MaxxTow Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101. When a hitch carrier like this is installed and loaded up with a motorcycle (even a relatively light one like a smaller dirt bike) there will always be some rear end sag on the vehicle. In the same way, a vehicle like a pickup truck that can have a front hitch installed to allow use of a snowplow will have the same issue but only on the other end of the vehicle. The...

  • Is Draw-Tite Class III Hitch 75784 Compatible with J-Pin Locking Stabilizer 63201
  • Draw-Tite Hitch # 75784 is a confirmed fit on your 2017 Acura RDX and this hitch is indeed compatible with the J-pin locking stabilizer # 63201. This will work along with Reducer Sleeve # HT02 to allow your 1-1/4-inch bike rack to be installed in this 2-inch hitch. The J-pin will stabilize the reducer in the hitch tube but it will not do anything for the potential rattle of the bike rack's 1-1/4-inch shank in the reducer's opening. You may care to use a secondary anti-rattle device...

  • Recommended Complete Towing Setup for 2017 Toyota Highlander SLE AWD for 3,850 lb Trailer
  • I'm happy to help you get what you need for towing. I did a little research to find your 2017 Toyota Highlander SLE AWD towing capacity to be 5,000 lbs. Based on that, you will not have an issue with a 3,850 lb travel trailer with 400 lb tongue weight, but you will want the proper equipment to do so. I recommend starting with the Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75896 rated for up to 900 lbs tongue weight and towing up to 6,000 lbs. I also recommend using the Tow...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Towing System for 2018 Toyota RAV4
  • When you install an aftermarket part on your vehicle like a trailer hitch receiver in this case, you are protected by the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act. This act states, in part, that unless the installation and the part caused a problem then the Toyota Factory Warranty cannot be voided. I recommend looking it up online and you can print it out if you need the hard copy. For your 2018 Toyota RAV4, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76134 is...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitches for Ground Clearance on 2020 Toyota RAV4
  • When we installed the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 76201 and the Curt Class III # C13416 on the 2019 model Toyota RAV4, we actually measured an identical ground clearance measurement of 12". This is taken from the ground to the top of the 2" receiver. So when it comes to ground clearance neither hitch is going to have the advantage over the other on your 2020 RAV4, although that doesn't means there's still not a clear overall winner between the two. For your RAV4 I highly recommend...

  • What You Need To Tow A Trailer With A 2017 Toyota Rav4
  • In order to tow a trailer with your 2017 Toyota Rav4, you will need a trailer hitch receiver, wiring harness, and ball mount with hitch ball. For this, I recommend using the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75235 as this hitch receiver has the highest rated weight capacity for all our RAV4 hitches. For a ball mount, I recommend using the Ball Mount 3/4" Rise or 2" Drop part # 2923 with our 2" Hitch Ball - 1" Diameter part # 63845. You will also need a wiring harness...

  • Recommended Front Mounted Trailer Hitch Receiver for 1997 Ford F-150 4WD for Snow Plow
  • The Curt hitch # 31049 for your 1997 Ford F-150 cannot be mounted upside down. It is designed to be that high for winch mounting and a more hidden look with greater ground clearance. Based on your need to have the hitch lower for your snowplow, I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65025 which is a confirmed fit for your F-150 4WD. Based on customer measurements, this hitch will be about 14 inches from the ground. I also recommend using...

  • Recommendations to Tow a Trailer and 2 Bikes with a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon 2.5i Limited
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75673 is what I recommend for you to install on your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon as it can easily tow a 1,500-lb trailer and hold 2 bikes. You will want to check your owner's manual though about the max Tongue Weight (TW) of your Outback Wagon. From what I found online it looks like it has a TW capacity of 200 lbs which, since a trailer's TW should be 10-15% of the loaded trailer weight, could be an issue if you are wanting to carry bikes as...

  • Will the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 Work with a Cushioned Shank
  • The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 is made to be used with 2 inch trailer hitch receivers and is used to help eliminate any rattle and/or sway that happens in the hitch receiver on your 2008 Honda Ridgeline. The great thing about this device is that you will be able to use whatever hitch pin that you want to. Since it secures the shank on the outside it will work just fine with your cushioned shank. If you are wanting to use the Quiet Hitch with a J-Pin, like part # 63201, then it can...

  • Best Anti-Rattle Device For Towing Applications
  • Yes, the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch part # RM-061 can be used for towing. The Quiet Hitch is designed to secure the shank against the side of the hitch receiver to minimize movement and noise. However, these collars are not always the best option as they may interfere with certain accessories or hitch receivers. The best option to secure and minimize rattle of the shank in the ball mount while towing a trailer would involve using the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # 63232...

  • Recommended Front Trailer Hitch Receiver for 1999 GMC Sierra 2500 HD 4 Wheel Drive
  • For your 1999 GMC 2500 HD with 4WD, I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 65005. This receiver is rated for 9,000 lbs line pull, vertical load of 500 lbs, and gross trailer weight of 5,000 lbs. I also recommend the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer and Cover for 2" Hitch Receivers # 63080 to go with this receiver. I've attached a video of this product to assist. I also recommend the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for...

  • Class III Curt vs DrawTite Recommendation for 2003 Suzuki XL7
  • The two hitches for your 2003 Suzuki XL-7, the Curt part # C13517 and the Draw Tite part # 41537 are both excellent options that will work well for you. Neither has a tendency to rust or corrode before the other. The prices are so close too I'd not be able to recommend you just go with the less expensive one as they are both really about the same. Since you mentioned the J-pin style anti-rattle # 63201 of the Draw Tite that would probably tip the scale towards the Draw Tite.
