Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Class III, IV and V Pin and Clip Review

Today, we'll be taking a look at the Pin And Clip for Class III, IV and V trailer hitch receivers, part number PC3. This 5/8ths pin and clip is going to fit 2" and 2-1/2" square receiver tubes. It's 5/8" long and has a pistol grip shape handle. That way, it can be easily installed and removed, and it won't slide all the way through. It's great for standard ball mounts or more complicated ones, like weight distribution chains. It's also great for cargo carriers and bike racks that don't have an anti-rattle bolt.

In fact, you can use it for any hitch-mounted accessories that require a 5/8ths hitch pin and clip. Now, let's go ahead and see what it looks like when it's going down the road. That's going to complete our look at the Pin And Clip for Class III, IV and V trailer hitch receivers, part number PC3.

Pulling the pin on my new Tacoma was a pain in the rear with the old pin from a 2005 Tacoma. The new truck has an extra lip welded on the receiver. So I got this one, out of the box I thought it was exactly what the old one was. Not so, just a bit longer so the pin slides right in ?? Thanks 561921


Comments
The Oem hitches on the 2005 Toyota Tacomas have extra width around the receiver and will need a hitch pin that is made for a 3 inch hitch. I recommend Curt part # C21506 Hitch Pin and Clip. This hitch pin and clip is 4 13/16 inches long.

Pin works fine but is barely long enough for my application (2.5" receiver). It would be better if it were about 0.25" longer. 543121

Ordering and delivery was great from etrailer, although the description of the hitch pin I purchase said it would fit a class 5 hicth and did, but no finger room to place key in and out of pin. I’m looking for something about a inch longer that makes key easier to remove and to install, I consider this pin not ideal for a class 5 hicth and have a better detail on website. I do have the perfect pin now, trying to find a couple more. Thanks, Mark W 580337

This is actually the second one of these I've installed. I helped a friend put one on his 06 Outback and it was really easy. So when I needed one for my 05 Outback I knew where to buy one. Super-simple installation and looks good too. 372752

Extremely poor design. Do NOT purchase this junk! Go to a hardware store and get a real one. This pin has no hole for a cotter pin. The weak spring clip is unreliable at best. I would not take a chance on a clip design like this. 108039


Comments
I do not use this pin. Instead, I use a pin with a cotter pin hole in it.

Customer Support was excellent. Products fit as good as factory and a whole lot less expensive. Installed in a couple of hours with a little help from a friend. The hitch is pretty beefy and I needed a little help holding in place. Other than that everything bolted right up. Nice heavy duty bolts and thick wafer washers to insure it won’t come lose. The hardest part was cutting the plastic factory shielding underneath around the hitch. Great product. 715371

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Hitch Pins and Clips

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the Draw-Tite 5/8 Inch Hitch Pin PC3
    The class III and greater hitch pins like part # PC3 are never going to be the weak point in a towing setup therefore they do not have a working load limit (WLL) or break strength rating. This is pretty standard across all trailer hitch pin manufacturers. The trailer hitch and or ball mount will fail much sooner than the hitch pin will. I know it may seem crazy but I have never seen a hitch pin given any sort of weight rating before. If you really must have a weight capacity rating, then...

  • Hitch Pin or Lock to Secure a hitch Cover in a Trailer Hitch Receiver
    A regular hitch pin and clip would work to keep the cover in the hitch. If your trailer hitch is a Class I or II with a 1-1/4 inch wide receiver then you would use pin and clip # PC2. For Class III, IV, and V receivers you would use # PC3. The other option is to go with a lock. For a Class I or II hitch you could use # e98879. For a Class II, IV, or V you can use # e98881. A regular pin or a lock will go through the hitch receiver and through the holes on a hitch cover securing the...

  • Hitch Lock to Fit Wider Exterior of 2014 Toyota Tundra OEM Hitch Tube
    Toyota OEM hitches can have extra material around their exterior to reinforce the hitch tube. This can make it necessary to use a longer hitch pin that can span this wider dimension. The actual hitch pin hole diameter of all 2-inch hitches is 5/8-inch. A standard hitch pin for this size hitch is part # PC3. If the actual diameter of your hitch pin hole is larger then it may have been rounded out by wear. If this is the case I suggest you check with your local dealership to ensure the hitch...

  • How to Prepare a 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver for Winter Weather
    In order to prevent rust from accumulating inside the trailer hitch receiver while not in use I recommend using a hitch cover like the Tow Ready Black Plastic Hitch Cover for 2" Trailer Hitches part # TR1202 to cover the receiver tube opening and a standard hitch pin like the Curt Pin and Clip part # C21510 to cover the hitch pin hole.

  • What is the Purpose of a Trailer Hitch Ball, Trailer Hitch Pin, and a Clip and are All Necessary
    A hitch ball and a hitch pin and clip each serve a different purpose. A hitch ball, like # 19247, attaches to the ball mount, like # 2923, using a large nut that threads on from the bottom, kind of like a nut and bolt. This ball is what the trailer coupler attaches to. The hitch pin goes through the ball mount and the trailer hitch and the clip keeps it from coming out while traveling. There are also locking hitch pins that use a lock and not a clip like # e98880. Basically, you...

  • Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock & Hitch Cover for Reese 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The diameter hitch pin for a 2-inch hitch is 5/8-inch, very close to your 9/16-inch dimension. In this size we offer a plain pin/clip # PC3, locks such as # 5201 and anti-rattle locks such as # 63232. This anti-rattle lock works in any hollow-shank ball mount or accessory carrier to both steady it and help protect it from theft. I linked our main pages for 2-inch hitch covers, including plain rubber covers like # 22282 and # I-728 as well as themed covers.

  • Hitch Pin Recommendation for 2017 Jeep Wrangler with 2 inch Trailer Hitch
    If your trailer hitch opening measures 2 inch by 2 inch then you'd want a hitch pin that is 5/8 inch in diameter like the part # PC3. Or for a hitch lock that doubles as an anti rattle device you'd want the part # 63232.

  • Replacement Lock for Snowbear Trailer Coupler
    The Pin and Clip For Class 3, 4 and 5 Trailer Hitch Receivers, item # PC3, is the pin needed to install a ball mount in a Class 3 or larger 2 inch receiver. I checked out the Snowbear trailer website and saw that the majority of their trailers have a standard 2 inch ball coupler. We have coupler locks that will fit this style of trailer coupler. The Curt Coupler Safety Pin, 1/4 inch, item # K-8P, is a no frills safety pin that will get the job done and if you want a measure of security...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 1974 Chevy C10 Stepside Pickup
    If your truck has the standard bumper, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75034. If you have the deep drop bumper, use the Draw-Tite # 41504. I've linked you to an FAQ article that explains the difference between the standard and deep drop bumper. If you need to install a 4 pole trailer connector, use # 118311. You might also need a ball mount like # 2753, a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball like #19261 or a 2 inch trailer ball like part # 63845.

  • Recommended Hitch Pin Compatible with Trailer Hitch Receiver Mounted Forged Tow Eye # TR63045
    The Trailer Hitch Receiver Mounted Forged Tow Eye, # TR63045, will accept a hitch pin that is 5/8 inch diameter and at least 2 inches long. The Pin and Clip, # PC3, that you have referenced will fit. I recommend a locking hitch pin, like the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Flush Design, # e98888, to deter theft. I have included a video review that features this lock below.

  • Available Types of Locking & Anti-Rattle Hitch Pins for 2-Inch Hitch on 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
    For a basic hitch pin and clip for a 2-inch trailer hitch we offer part # PC3. This secures your ball mount or hitch accessory but does not lock it or provide an anti-rattle function. For a hitch lock to secure your item you can use a standard pin lock # e98880 or for a lock with anti-rattle you can use # 63232 which works with hitch accessories that have a hollow shank.

  • Recommended Hitch Pin For Tow Bar Application
    The hitch pin I recommend for a 2 inch receiver tow bar is 5/8 inch like # PC3. For a locking hitch pin to secure your tow bar to your motorhome, I recommend the Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # BX8858. A 1/2 inch pin is not big enough.

  • What Size Hitch Pin is Needed with the Reese Titan Reducer Sleeve Part # 58102
    The Reese Titan Reducer Sleeve part # 58102 uses a 5/8" diameter hitch pin like part # PC3 or part # e98881. A 2" trailer hitch receiver has the same hitch pin hole diameter as a 2-1/2" hitch. The only difference is that the usable pin length will need to be longer (at least 3") to accommodate for the wider collar. I have also attached a list of hitch pins that will work with the above adapter for you.

I don't know why it isn't on their website, but we get the part from the manufacturer that makes Draw-Tite, Reese, and Hidden Hitch brands.

  • How Does One Use Part # PC3 In Conjunction With A Trailer Hitch Cover
    The Clip that is included with the # PC3 hitch pin is made of spring steel. The spring action of the clip holds it onto the grooved end of the hitch pin, keeping the hitch pin from sliding out of the hitch receiver tube. There is no weight bearing on the clip so it is not subjected to forces strong enough to remove clip. When installing the Michigan State Spartans hitch cover, item # AMG100277, you will insert the cover into the 2 inch reciever hitch on the vehicle and secure it with the...

  • Where on Trailer Frame to Measure for Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch for RVs
    Thanks for all those measurements! There is a trailer hitch that will work great for your travel trailer, though the measurement you want to go with is from outside to outside, which you said was 70-1/2 inches. That means the correct hitch is the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and 350 lb tongue weight capacity so you will be able to carry a good deal of cargo with it. For a cargo carrier on the rear...

However, you will need to activate it by putting your foot to the side of the hitch receiver opening with both hitches. The sensors will not recognize your foot through the hitch unfortunately.

  • Can Cargo Carrier be Used Behind an RV
    There is a cargo carrier you can use on an RV but it is recommended it be one with a completely solid shank as opposed to one which folds and tilts; the reason for that is the amount of movement at the rear of an RV will be much greater than the back of a passenger vehicle and a solid shank will give your carrier the added stability to handle that much movement. The cargo carrier I recommend is the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18152 because like the etrailer.com Cargo Carrier it measures 60"...

  • How To Tow A Trailer Without Measuring for Rise/Drop
    The only true way to determine what ball mount you need is to measure from the ground to the top inside edge of the receiver tube on the vehicle and then subtract the difference from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on the trailer while level. However, if you do not have access to the trailer then the best option for you is an adjustable ball mount as this will not only more than likely allow you to tow your boat trailer level without measuring beforehand but will also accommodate...

    While your frustration is understandable and we have a solution for you, I wouldn't be able to tell you with absolute certainty that using the Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack # JET-3755 will stop your tailgate from hitting the jack. The reason is, A-frame jacks like these mount to a specific place on your trailer and if your tailgate comes down at that point, they will hit. What you can do instead is use a side-frame mount jack like the Fulton Marine Jack # HD50000101 or you...
