Video Transcript for Tow Ready Hitch Locks - Standard Pin Lock - TR63254 Review

Today we're going to review part number TR63254. This is a Tow Ready Base Rail Lock for fifth-wheel trailer hitches. It's a 1/2 inch diameter pin right here. This bent pin-style lock will secure your fifth-wheel trailer hitch to the standard base rails in your truck bed. You'll use this in place of the pin and clip on one of the hitch legs of your fifth wheel. This is a steel pin which is very strong and durable. It has a nice chrome-plated finish which will help resist rust.

It has this plastic snap-on cap right here and that cap will cover this key slot to help prevent any corrosion from getting into the locking mechanism. It does come with the two keys. They are included. Basically what you would do is go ahead and put the key in there and turn it and this will pop out and when that pops out, you can remove the lock end from the pin itself and actually you can take the key out because then when you go to install it, you can just push it on and then when you push that down, it would lock it into place. You don't need the key to lock it down. I'm going to give you a few specs on this. The overall length, which is from this end to the very end here, this is going to be right at 7-1/2 inches.

Now the inside length, which is going to be the measurement here to where the bend starts, this is going to be right at 3-1/2 inches. And again, the pin diameter on this is 1/2 inch. Now what I'm going to do is we're going to take this off and I'm actually going to install it. As we go back here, I have an example of a fifth-wheel leg right here. This is on the rails already and then you can see it has the pin and clip already on there. What I'm going to do is go ahead and pull the clip to pull that pin out and then what I'm going to do is take this bent pin.

I'm going to slide it through where that pin and clip was and again, take the key out and then I'm just going to put this lock on the end, push it. That locks it into place. You can put the cover on it and you can see that this would lock into placed. All you really need is one of these on here. You could do all four if you want but actually one would work fine and keep anybody from removing the fifth-wheel hitch from your rails themselves. Just to remove it, open that cover, put the key in there, turn it until it pops out and then you can take that off and you're ready to go. Simple installation as that, but that should do it on a review on part number TR63254, the Tow Ready Base Rail Lock for fifth-wheel trailer hitches. .

One lock used to lock 5th wheel hitch to industry standard rails. One lock used to lock Industry Standard Rails to pickup truck frame. Both locks worked perfectly. I now have THREE locks on my expensive 5th wheel hitch to really slow down any evil doers. They would be making a hell of a racket trying to get my hitch. Thanks. Great locks, fair price, super service, keyed alike. Thank so much! 602223

It seems to work for my bike rack. Bike rack is also loose in the hitch (doesn't really seem like it's this pin's fault) so i bought a quiet hitch u-bolt thing, hopefully once that arrives my bike rack setup will be good to go. 711440

The product was great. Sturdy and solid. The reason for the 3 stars is because it was not long enough. It would of been perfect if it was just a 1/4 inch longer. It would not lock. To bad too would of been perfect. 621843

- TR63254
by:

Works as advertised. Seems to be a pretty solid lock. One of the pics I saw showed a B&W hitch similar to mine so I pulled the trigger on the purchase. Upon install I couldn't get the lock piece to secure to its pin. My base rail system (B&W custom rail kit 2017 RAM Cummins D) design was not allowing the lock to secure do to not having enough space/room. I finally ended up getting it secure by some "fanagalling" but it ends up being a tight fit in a tight space especially if I want to get the key in. Wish the pin piece was just a tad bit longer. All in all great product and does what it is supposed to do. 547450

  • Locking Pin Compatible with B&W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Head
    It sounds like you are looking for a way to lock the head of the B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch to the base and I do have an option for you. The saddle pin # BW3025-119A is used to secure the head unit to the base has a 1/2" diameter and about 3-1/4" of usable space. To lock the head to the base I recommend using the Tow Ready Base Rail Lock for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 1/2" Diameter Pin # TR63254.

  • Availability of Keyed-Alike 1/2-Inch 5th Wheel Hitch Locks
    We do offer pin-style 5th wheel hitch locks such as the Tow Ready # TR63254 but they cannot be keyed alike. However, we offer Reese Pull Pin Lock Plates for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, part # RP58093 sold as a set of four, that can be used along with the Master Lock Shrouded Padlock # 37DAT.

  • Can Tow Ready Hitch Pin #63254 be Used with Reese Bed Rails # 50082-58
    I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately the Tow Ready Base Rail Lock # TR63254 will not fit the Reese standard bed rails like what you have installed. Instead what you will want to do is use the Reese Pull Pin Lock Plates # RP58093 on a pin or pins that have a groove on the end like part # 6020PIN (or part # 6014 for 4). This will then allow you to add a lock like part # 37DAT. If you choose to go with 4 of them then you can just change the option for the locks to be keyed...

  • Can the Tow Ready Base Rail Lock be Keyed Alike
    The Tow Ready Base Rail Lock for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # TR63254 that you referenced can not be keyed alike. However, having one installed should work as a theft deterrent. If someone was willing to cut one off they would probably be willing to cut two more as well. The thing about theft deterrents is they keep honest people honest, but a determined thief will get what they want typically. So if a determined thief decides he is going to go to whatever lengths to steal your 5th wheel...

  • Availability of Locking 5t Wheel Pin Kit that is Keyed Alike
    I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately we do not have any kits available for locking up your 5th wheel setup. Instead what you can use is the Tow Ready Base Rail Lock # TR63254, along with the 5th Wheel Coupler Lock # e98896, and the Atwood AMPlock Padlock # AT89018. These don't have the ability to be keyed alike, but they will provide you with locks to the points that you mentioned.

  • Usable Length of Tow Ready Base Rail Lock for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches TR63254
    The usable inside length (what we call the center span) on the Tow Ready Base Rail Lock for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # TR63254 is 3-1/2-inches. This spec is listed on the product page but I took a walk to our warehouse to measure for myself so I could be absolutely sure for you. This center span is indeed 3-1/2-inches between the inside edge of the lock cylinder and the start of the bend in the pin.

    To lock your Reese Titan 16K hitch to your truck bed, I recommend using the Tow Ready Base Rail Lock # TR63254. This will give you a locking pin on your base rails that are bolted into your truck bed. You can use one, or one on each side for additional security.

I'd need to know what fifth wheel hitch to know for sure, but I've never heard of a lock that fits the shoulder bolts of a fifth wheel hitch so most likely we won't have what you need.

  • Installation of Tow Ready Base Rail Lock # TR63254 On Fifth Wheel Base Rails
    On the Tow Ready Base Rail Lock, part # TR63254, the bent pin can be pointing up or down. The installation procedure doe not require it to be it a particular position. As long as it fits through the hitch and the base rails, and can be locked, it will work fine.

  • Recommended Lock With 1/2 Inch Pin Diameter

  • Will Fifth Wheel Rail Lock TR63254 Fit Rail Kit RP56007-53
    Yes, the Fifth Wheel lock part # TR63254 that you referenced will fit the Reese Rail kit part # RP56007-53 as this rail kit is an outboard, 10 bolt kit which is what the lock is designed to fit.

  • Diameter of Locking Portion of Tow Ready # TR63254 5th Wheel Base Rail Lock
    The outer diameter of the locking portion of the Tow Ready # TR63254 lock is 1.142, or just a bit larger than 1-1/8 inch. If this will not provide enough clearance, you can use the Reese Pull Pin Lock Plates like part # RP58093. You would also need a padlock like part # 37DAT. Keep in mind that these Pull Pin Plates are not compatible with the Reese R16 or R20 due to the different sized pins used.

  • Could Tow Ready Base Rail Lock # TR63254 be Used as Hitch Lock
    It would be a bit thin compared to most hitch pins but the part # TR63254 would technically work as a lockable hitch pin. It's 1/2 inch in diameter and most applications call for 5/8. The part # 1480DAT is a great choice that is the standard 5/8 inch diameter. The smaller hitch pin size would mean much more movement and rattle when on the road.

    Let's start with a 5th wheel hitch for your 2015 GMC Sierra 1500. Since your truck has a very short bed 5th wheel towing will require a standard fixed 5th wheel hitch along with a replacement Sidewinder pin box, as you noted. The 16K-rated Reese # RP30047 features a 4-way pivoting head assembly to simplify hitching your trailer on uneven ground as well as a dual-jaw system for better grip on your king pin. The key difference is the length of the warranty - 10 years for the Pro Series...

    Thank you for the photo of your 5th wheel base rail and mounting pin and clip. The Reese Pull Pin Lock Plates # RP58093 you referenced are intended to be used with a pad lock to secure your hitch mounting pin. In order to use these on your 5th wheel you will need to replace your mounting pins (or at least one of them anyway) with a new pin that has a notch in the end. We offer part # 6020PIN. Given the tight fit around your base rails installing these may be easier with a helper on...

We actually have a solution for your 2018 GMC Sierra 3500 with a 6-1/2' bed that I believe fits your needs perfectly. Demco has their autosliding Hijacker part # DM8550034 for 18K or part # DM8550035 for 21K.

    Since you have the 5-1/2' bed on your 2018 Ford F-150 what you need to do is use a stationary 5th wheel hitch and replace the pin box on your trailer with a Sidewinder or 5th Airborne Premium with the Sidewinder. The 5th wheel hitch I recommend using is the Reese Select Plus 20K # RP30081 because it features a superior single-jaw for 360 degrees of king pin contact and the higher weight capacity so that you have a safety margin (be sure not to exceed the weight rating of your F-150)....

  • What Base Rail Locks Work With Reese Hitch and Rails?
    The description of your lock makes it sound like you may have gotten a hitch receiver lock and not a fifth wheel pin lock. Fifth wheel pin locks need to have the same diameter as the pull pins, so you would need a 1/2" diameter pin lock. However, they also need to fit, and the Tow Ready Base Rail Lock # TR63254, for example, is not compatible with the Reese base rails # RP56001-53 on your 2016 Chevy Silverado.
