Video Transcript for Weigh Safe Hitch Locks - Standard Pin Lock - WS05 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Weigh Safe stainless steel hitch receiver lock for two inch, two-and-a-half inch and three inch hitches. This is a bent pin hitch lock design. You would use this in place of your standard pinning clip on your hitch receiver. This lock will prevent somebody from taking your ball mount or your hitch accessory like a bike raft or cargo carrier. It is a stainless steel pin and lock construction. Does use a high strength ball interlock design to lock it.

If you notice on the end here it has a covered key slot with the rubber cap to prevent rust and corrosion.It is a two key lock cylinder, which'll provide better security than the standard key mechanisms; makes it harder to pick and more difficult to duplicate keys. It is a very easy-to-use design, requires only a quarter turn of the key to lock or unlock it so you just out your key in here, turn it a quarter of a turn. It unlocks it just like that and then, to install it, just turn it right back and it locks it right into place.The specs again on this: the application is for two inch by two inch hitch receivers, two-and-a-half inch by two-and-a-half inch and three inch by three inch trailer hitches. This pin diameter on this is five eighths of an inch. The overall length, which will measure from here to the very end, is gonna be right at seven inches long.

The inside span, which would be the usable length is gonna be right about three-and-a-half inches and, again, it includes the two two keys so what I'm gonna show you now is I'm gonna to happen to have a hitch receiver, two inch by two inch hitch receiver and you can see it has a ball mount in it with the standard pin and clip so, if somebody wanted that, they could just pull the pin and clip to remove it so what I'm gonna show you is you just remove your standard pin and clip, open up your cap, go ahead and put your key in and just turn it a quarter of a turn. It'll unlock it and then slide your pin through all the way. Once you get it on, slide that on, turn it the quarter of a turn. That locks it into place. Put your cap back into place and you're all locked in.Nobody can remove your ball mount or accessory and then, to remove it, just pop it open, put your key in there, turn it a quarter of a turn.

It'll slide right off just like that. Very simple install and removal but that should do it for the review on the Weigh Safe stainless steel hitch received lock for two inch, two-and-a-half inch and three inch hitches.

Chedi J was awesome!!!! I am hauling a High School band trailer for a competition this week. We discovered I don't have the correct lock for my hitch. Sir, you took care of it and ,,,thank you for the shipping!!!!!! Staley High School Band!!! 569162

This was not my first order from etrailer and it won't be my last. Their website is easy to navigate and the order process is simple. Shipping is quick and arrives when expected. Quality of products is top of the line. So no surprises on the locking hitch pin I just received. I have several hitch pins and a couple of them with locks, but my new truck is the first I've owned with a 2.5inch hitch so I wanted to get a locking pin to secure my expensive WD hitch. This serves that purpose perfectly. 520473

Amazing customer service and shipping was fast. They also followed up with us to make sure we got our shipment and that we were happy with the product.... That is a thing of the past that I miss and etrailer seems to still hold up those values.. Highly recommended!!! 434639

by:

Appears to be well constructed and I like the round key as opposed to a conventional key as they tend to resist corrosion in the working parts better than their conventional bretheren. I use it on a 2 1/2" reciever and it fits satisfactorily. 637186

Ordered the Weigh Safe WS10-25 drop ball mount with the Weigh Safe receiver lock. The hitch looked like it was used. The Weigh Safe sticker had been removed and the unit was gouged on the shaft and ball mount. This may have been a return item that was shipped to me. I'm very disappointed. I expect a new product, not a used or poor quality second. First time buying from etrailer. Most likely my last. 419071



- WS05
by:

This is a good quality pin but it is a little difficult to turn the key to lock the end on without pushing the pin partially out. I don't fully trust that it's locked so wind up pulling on the end. It has always been locked but I'm a little leery of the way it locks on, just some balls that move into and out of a detent. Pretty pricey for what it is. Since I will rarely leave my hitch on, I'll probably just use a conventional pin most of the time. Wish my Weigh Safe hitch and pin were keyed alike also. Not sure how that could have been ordered but would do that in a do over. 617171

Doesn’t seem to be many hitch locks out there for a 3” hitch, this one works very nicely. Would’ve been nice to have the option to have keyed alike (since I bought everything together) without buying all the extra parts I don’t need but we are a wasteful world these days. 455382


Comments

The dust cover on the lock quickly dry toys and crumbles after leaving your hands black, the keys are flimsy had to order replacements very quickly, I quit using this after about 6 months. Can’t take stars away it looks like.

Not easy to find a pin for a 3” receiver. My 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty has a 3” hitch mount. This pin works great with my B&W Tow and Stow three ball hitch. For the money I spent on that hitch I needed to be able to lock it to the truck. This pin is perfect. I did have to grease the pin to get it to fit into the holes but it did eventually go once I got them lined up. 463446


Comments

After a year the lock pin has performed as expected. I would highly recommend if you have a high dollar 3” hitch that you want to keep attached to your truck.

This is the second hitch I have ordered and it really is a thing of beauty when it arrives. So far with the first one, I have not noticed any problems. The second one is for a work truck.

This is a great hitch. It is very well made and should last a lifetime. The color and material are great. The hitch is heavy and made strong. The balls of the hitch fit my trailer tongue perfect.

As advertised... One thing to note: if you have an interference (like your electrical hookup) near the hitch, you may have a challenge with this. You need about 6" on one side to be able to insert the pin... an ~4" of clearance on the other side to apply the locked cap + the length of the key to be able to remove it. Requires much more clearance than simply sliding in an unlocked hitch pin. 592344

Do you have a question about this Hitch Lock?


  • Recommended 3 Inch Receiver Hitch Pin Lock For 2017 Ford F-250
  • I reached out to my contact at Bolt and they don't have any 3 inch hitch receiver pins available yet, but they are working on it. For a lock that is available for your 3 inch receiver on your 2017 Ford F-250, I recommend the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock for 2", 2-1/2", and 3" Hitches - 3-1/2" Span # WS05.

  • Comparing the Bulldog Hitch Receiver Locking Pin to the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock
  • If your 2017 Ford F-250, whether you have the 3 inch receiver or the 2-1/2 inch, the two options you gave of the Bulldog Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # BD580412 and the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock for 2, 2-1/2, and 3inch Hitches - 3-1/2inch Span # WS05 are both great options. The usable length of the Bulldog lock is 4 inches so it will work with a 3 inch receiver as well as the 2-1/2 listed in the description. I like the look of the Bulldog...

  • Recommended B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for Ford F-250 Trucks
  • For your standard height trucks and trailers, the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop, 5-1/2" Rise - 10K - Black # BWTS10048B will work very well for both of your trucks. This will not only work well with all 5 of your trailers but will also give you great ground clearance. If you had a lift on your truck, then I'd recommend the 7 inch drop # BWTS10049B, but it won't be needed on a non-lifted truck and will give you less ground clearance.

  • Best Locking Hitch Pin for a 3 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • Yes, the Bulldog Hitch Receiver Lock part # BD580412 is a locking hitch pin that will fit the 3" trailer hitch receiver on your 2017 Ford F-350. This hitch pin has a dual self-locking design with a flush look. It is constructed of stainless steel and is 5/8" in diameter. The included dust cap will help keep the lock core free of dirt and debris. This is currently the only locking hitch pin we offer that will fit a 3" trailer hitch receiver for the exception of the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver...

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for 3 inch Trailer Hitch of 2018 Ford F-350
  • For a hitch lock to fit a 3 inch trailer hitch like what you have you would want the Weigh Safe Hitch lock part # WS05.

  • What is the Hitch Pin Hole Diameter on 3 Inch Ball Mounts
  • The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Balls - 3" Hitch - 6" Drop, 6" Rise - 21K # LTB6-3 has a 5/8 inch hitch pin hole. I recommend using the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock for 2", 2-1/2", and 3" Hitches - 3-1/2" Span # WS05 which is that 5/8 inch pin designed to secure this ball mount. The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop, 7" Rise - 21K - Black # BWTS30049B also has the 5/8 inch diameter hitch pin hole, so I recommend using that same lock. The Reese Super...

  • Aluminum Adjustable Ball Mount Needed with 2" and 2-5/16" Stainless Hitch Balls for 2017 Ford F-250
  • If we take 14 away from the 23-1/2 inches that you measured the height of the inside of your 2-1/2 inch receiver to be on your 2017 Ford F-250, that leaves you with 9-1/2 inches. This means that you need an adjustable ball mount with a drop of about 9-1/2 inches for your trailer to ride level. I do have a few options for you to choose from when it comes to an aluminum ball mount with a 2 inch and a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball that are stainless steel. The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS10-25...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 2017 Ford F-250 with 3 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • In order to determine how much drop you need, you will measure from the top inside edge of your trailer hitch receiver on your 2017 Ford F-250 to the ground. Then you will measure from the ground to the bottom of your trailer coupler when it is level. The difference between these measurements is the drop you need. I've attached an article to assist and have linked 3 inch ball mount options. I personally recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch -7-1/2" Drop, 7" Rise -...

The Tow & Stow will fit your 3" hitch and will give you a maximum drop of 7-1/2" and maximum rise of 7". It comes with a 2" hitch ball that has a maximum capacity of 7,500 lbs and a 2-5/16" hitch ball with a maximum capacity of 21,000 lbs. The...

  • Is There A 3 Inch Hitch Receiver To 2 Inch Receiver Sleeve Reducer Available?
  • Absolutely. For your 3 inch receiver, I recommend the Reese Super Titan Receiver Adapter - 3" to 2" Reducer Sleeve # 38735. This will allow you to use your Tow Bar without issue. You may need the Super Titan Trailer Hitch Pin and Clip for 3" Receivers # 58388, this is a 3/4 inch diameter pin. If you want a locking pin to secure your adapter, I recommend the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock for 2", 2-1/2", and 3" Hitches - 3-1/2" Span # WS05.

  • I spoke with my contact at Fastway regarding the Self-Locking Adjustable 3-Ball Mount 2.5 Inch # DTALBM6825-3S referenced in your question. He stated that this actually will not work with the 3 inch receiver on your Ford F-350, even when using the Ford provided reducer sleeve. This is because of the design on the self-locking system that is utilized with this particular ball mount. The integrated locking knobs on the shank will do a great job of securing itself to the reducer sleeve, but...

  • Can Hitch Ball Platform on 180 Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount for 3 Inch Trailer Hitches be Reversed
  • Yes, the ball platform on the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # LTB6-3 can be reversed so the hitch ball platform is under the truck. This 2-ball mount fits in 3 inch trailer hitches and has a reversible hitch ball platform with a 2 inch hitch ball (8,000 lb capacity) and 2-5/16 inch hitch ball (21,000 lb capacity). The ball platform is secured to the shank with the included pin locks though I do recommend using the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock # WS05 to lock the ball mount to your trailer...

  • Locking Hitch Pin Needed for a Gen-Y Hitch Being Used with a 2017 Toyota Tundra
  • You most likely have a Gen-Y hitch that is compatible with a 2" receiver like part # 325-GH-516. This means that you would need to use the Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-096 which is comparable to the locking hitch pin # WS05. If you happen to be using a Gen-Y hitch that fits a 2-1/2" receiver, like part # 325-GH-624, then the Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-099 that comes with it is comparable to the locking hitch pin # BD580412.

  • The Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers for 3" Hitch - 6" Drop/Rise - 32K # 325-GH-1723 is a great option for your 2019 Ford F-250 with 3 inch receiver. This ball mount will use 2-1/2 inch receivers, so the Bulldog Hitch Receiver Lock # BD580412, or the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock # WS05 will work.

For a 2-1/2 inch receiver, I recommend the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # e98881. For a 3 inch receiver, I recommend the hitch lock # WS05.

  • The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount only needs one hitch pin lock, part # WS05 if you have a 5/8" hitch pin hole. The reason for this is that the hitch balls on the B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount cannot be removed with the ball mount in the receiver tube due to the integrated channel. Therefore, it is not necessary to have locking hitch pins in the adjustment holes.

This will work perfectly with this 3 inch ball mount but you will just need to use the new key that comes included with the lock. I have attached a short...

  • Recommended Reducer Sleeve and Anti-Rattle Pin for 2017 F-250 With 3 Inch Receiver
  • The Reducer Sleeve for Super Titan Hitch Receivers - 3" to 2" # 38735 is a much better option than using multiple sleeves. The XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2-1/2" Hitches # SHP2040-XL has a 3.54 inch pin span that will work if the outer edges of your receiver don't exceed that. The 3 inch pins like # WS05 only have that 3-1/2 inch span, so it should work and give you the anti-rattle stabilization as well but you may need to get a longer spring for easy installation.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Locking Hitch Pin to Fit 3 Inch Receiver on 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty

  • Why Doesn't Weigh Safe Hitch Pin Lock WS05 Have Weight Capacity
  • It actually does not have a weight capacity. Reason being hitch pins don't typically bear any of the weight of the trailer since the tongue weight of the trailer presses so hard down on the ball mount it pins it to the hitch tube. I am actually really surprised your pin lock was bent. Your old lock must have been defective for it to break under normal use.

For a 2-5/16" hitch ball with a 20,000 lb capacity the Curt # C40008, which has a 2-3/4" long and 1-1/4" diameter shank, would work, or if you need a 2" hitch ball the Curt # A-90 has a 10,000 lb capacity with a 2-5/8" long.
