Video Transcript for Gen-Y Hitch Pin and Clip for 2 inch Hitches Review

Collin: Hey guys, Collin here at etrailer. So here we're going to take a moment and show you guys this Gen-Y Hitch Pin. Now this pin is going to be a direct replacement for your standard 5/8 pin that you would have for your hitch receiver or maybe if you've lost it, you want to pick one up that matches your Gen-Y ball mount. That could be a great use for it as well. Now it's designed after their pins that hold the ball mounts in place, so you can see I've got one of those right here. Very similar design.

The only difference is this one is going to be 5/8" in diameter to fit inside your 2" hitch receiver. And what's nice is that I really like those twisting pull pins that they have, makes it a lot easier to pull. So you can see we've got our ball mounts in, feed it through nice and easy and then put that pin on. The twist pin that they have are really nice design, really easy to use.Personally, I think they're going to hold up a lot longer. We've all been there where you're trying to take a standard pin off and it just rusts down there and you just got to pull and pull and pull to get it off.

With the twist feature it makes it much easier. As you can see, I just twist it to the right, and it just comes right off. The pin's going to have a really sturdy steel construction and is also going to be zinc coated, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. As far as usable space on our pin from the edge of the pin hole to the edge right here from the head of our pin, it's going to be 3 1/2" inches. The overall length is going to be 5 1/8".

Now if you're looking for a pin for your 2 1/2" hitch receiver, they do have another version of this, that's going to fit those 2 1/2" and 3" receivers. So just check out our website.Now our personal opinion, I think it's really great that they made this pin so you can get your pins from your ball mount, matching the pin on your hitch receiver. Personally, I think if you're going to leave your nice Gen-Y wall mount installed in your hitch for long periods of time and never really going to take it off, you might want to look into a hitch lock, so that it will deter theft much better. We've got different brands available here at etrailer. We have our own brand as well as InfiniteRule and many others.

So just check out our website if that's something you're interested in.However, personally I'm the type of person that takes our ball mounts out of my receiver when I'm not using it, so there's really no reason for me to use a lock if I'm not leaving it unattended for long periods of time, in which case the Gen-Y Hitch Pin, it's going going to match my pin on my Gen-Y ball mounts and it's going to look great. Well, thank you all for watching and I hope this information helped you out. But that's going to do it for our look at the Gen-Y Hitch Pin for our 2" hitch receivers.

This item with (2) 5/8 washers are a perfect fit for 2018 tacoma trailer hitch.

- 325-GH-096

This worked exactly as I wanted. I had an application where bent pin was difficult to work with. I liked the clip enough that I have them for all my pins.

- 325-GH-096

Pin seems well made and looks great. With my set up the bent part of a normal hitch pin was always binding against something making it hard to get pin out. Like the unique locking clip as well, easy in and out, impossible to fall out.

- 325-GH-096

I really like this hitch pin. In particular, I really like the bent cotter pin. It's a small detail but it's nice to know that I'm not going to easily pull the cotter pin out and have to go hunt down a new one. It's fairly easy to install the pin just by leveraging open the long end as you insert it, then push and twist and it's locked on. Great product, great idea.

- 325-GH-096

Good quality products excellent price and was delivered in less than a week very happy. Would do business here again when needed.

- 325-GH-096

Works with my Curt C45910-15-20

- 325-GH-096

A Solid product. I’ll definitely buy more. It’s a good design, that’s much easier to use than traditional pins, and the design helps prevent busted fingers while trying to pull the cotter pin.

- 325-GH-096

Awesome pin. Replaced the pin on our Andersen weight distribution system triangle plate. Their pins were very slightly bending making it difficult to remove and put into triangle plate after a few thousand miles. This pin traveled 1500 plus miles without a “hitch”. It is solid!....yeah, best pin ever.

Greatest hitch pin ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!

Still the Best pin ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
