Video Transcript for Master Lock Pivot Lock Hitch Pin Review

Hey there haulers. Today, we're going to be taking a look at Master Lock's pivot lock hitch pin for two-inch hitches. It's available in chrome or stainless like you see here. When working with accessories for your two-inch hitch, one thing you're always going to need is a pin and clip. Now Master Lock has made this much simpler with this new design. Rather than having to fumble around and find your clip, which as always seems to be missing, or once you get it through there, having to line up with a small pinhole to get it in place, Master Lock has incorporated the clip design into their pin here so that it couldn't be simpler.Simply line up your accessory hole with your hitch hole.

And once you get this pushed through, you can pull out on the tab and drop it down into place and now it's not going anywhere. It's effectively a built in clip, so you don't have to worry about ever losing it. Spring loaded design makes it easy to rotate down into place. You can rotate it either up or down, depending on any clearance issues you may have. And when you're ready to remove your accessory, it's just as easy.

Lift up into position and slide out. And then you can see here that it is a 5/8 diameter hitch pin so it's going to work great with your Class III and Class IV accessories. It's got three inch usable span here, so it's going to fit all of those hitches as well. We've got our ball mount here today, but it's also going to work out great for your bike racks, cargo carriers, or anything else that you can throw at your two-inch hitch. And that completes our look at Master Lock's pivot lock pin for two inch hitches..

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (163 Customer Reviews)

Use this pivot-lock hitch pin for your next trip. This all-in-one hitch pin's adjustable barrel means no lost clips when removing your hitch-mounted accessories. Simply insert the pin, pull the barrel, and turn the barrel to the secured position.


Excellent quality, works like a charm. Might be nice if there was a .5" diameter available for class 1.25" hitches that have a 1/2" diameter hole.


The absolute best part of this product is the installation video. It is the difference between feeling like you can do it yourself versus needing to take it to a shop.
There are a number of tricky installation aspects that are no longer tricky when you learn about them in advance by watching the video, which is very thorough.
In the end, my hitch turned out great, and it works very well for my intended purpose (bike rack). It's awesome to have it hidden behind my license plate because I think exposed receiver hitches hanging low on cars (especially a Volt) look like a compromise compared to how they look on an SUV.
Thanks for making a great product along with a great video.


I LOVE this product because it is so easy for me to use. My brother gave me one years ago and I never have to worry about losing or misplacing the pin. I don't have to ask "a man" to help me with my trailer hitch. It is PERFECT!


If you don't need a locking pin this is the best option in my opinion. Quick, easy and corrosion free.


Great people to do business with.


very good pin! great people to do business with. dont know how it happened but i got a name of UNDERDOG i though that was funny. i put etrailer on my save list.


Love the concept, it was on sale so that didn’t hurt either. It fits really nicely. But, I have a sneaking suspicion that the twisting mechanism isn’t going to hold up very well or long


These are great. I have used these for 15 years with no issue. Bought some as gifts.


This is a great design. Sure beats trying to get the hairpin cotter pin in/out/lined up for the old one I lost!

After a year, this is the last hitch pin Ill ever buy. So easy to use.
Bobair - 12/27/2021


Nice product! A litle coating of rust from my truck's hitch, I just keep lubing!


So easy and convenient for me anyway no clip I’m not saying the clip is bad I just prefer this one


Great hitch pin and doesn't rust being stainless. Easy to use and I really like the pivot locking feature. I have two since they work so well and that way I don't have to keep finding which vehicle I last used them on! I occasionally spray some lubricant on the pivot head so the grooves and functioning of the pivot head doesn't clog up from dirt, mud and snow.

Still working great! One of my better purchases.
Bob - 07/25/2018


Have really liked this pin. Don't have to wrestle pulling rusty safety clips from a rusty pin. A simple pull and flip of the tip and the pin is ready to slide out.


I like these much better that the clip style pins that the clip can fall out as it ages and looses its tension.
HOWEVER I now have a 3" receiver on my Super Duty truck that this is to short for. Master makes a Locking pin that is long enough so that is what I'm using for now. Would be nice to have this type for normal use to prevent using key so often.

1 year latter Im only using this in my front Hitch that is a 2 receiver for winch and canoe tower rack. Does not fit my rear 3 receiver on Super Duty truck. Still waiting for Master to make a longer pin.
David - 04/02/2019


Just received it and haven’t used it yet. The master lock pivot lock appears to be good quality and should make life easier for my daughter when using the bike rack. Simple to lock with out the hair pin. It is great doing business with etrailer. Never a disappointment


These pins are great! I love to use them when I want to put in my receiver for something quick. Nothing to loose. Everything is in one place. Stainless Steel, too! What more could you ask for? I have several of these around to use whenever I need one. Only use a locking pin on long hauls where I can't keep an eye out for theft, otherwise I would use this pin 100%.

I still love using these pins!!! They are a great product. I have had no issues with them and will continue to use and buy them, until I have an issue to change my mind. A great product!!!
TRT801 - 04/28/2017


Works much better for me than hitch pins with hair pins


very nice and would purchase again


Easy to use.


The staff at etrailer made my buying experience nothing short unforgettable...they are prompt on receiving your order and processing it in a timely fashion. In my case I was confused on what it was I exactly needed; they emailed me a number of options that would accommodate my needs with budget and price range in mind. This is the second time I have purchased from etrailer and they made me feel like family; they can count on me being a long term customer from here on out! And last but not least the product speaks for itself. Towing a trailer from state to state can make you a sceptic of your equipments endurance and toughness; I know my hitch and components are one less thing I need to worry about...


Etrailer was great fast shipping great customer service. I love these pins and bought extra so ai didn’t have to switch 1 between trucks


What a dandy little pin. I recently bought a cargo hitch carrier from and stretching over the carrier to put the little hairpin clip into the hitch pin was causing me some grief. I found this pin and ordered it in stainless and chrome. I can engage it one-handed without having to crawl around under the bumper to find the hairpin clip, which I'm prone to do. Both of these are really high quality pins and the folks at are really hands-on kinda helpful. I'd have bought from them even if they weren't the cheapest online...but they were anyway.


This is a fantastic product if you do not leave you hitch on all the time. I have a drop hitch for my dump and a standard level for my flatbed, so I am switching hitches all the time. All you have to do is pull on the end rotate it up and pull it out. No more struggling with rusted clevis pins.


Speeds up and simplifies attaching the ball to the hitch. No pins to lose and its tight when locked. Highly recommended if you change hitch balls often or switch between a ball and a bike rack frequently.


This seems like such a trivial thing but the fact that you cannot lose the keeper for this pin AND the fact that it is stainless steel make it perfect for all of our vehicle trailer hitches (3). The design makes it super easy to install and remove even when the coupler mount is close to the bumper or a body fascia. I certainly recommend this to make the installation and removal of your draw bars quick and painless.

  • Purpose of the Thin Steel Cable That Goes Through Master Lock Pivot Lock Hitch Pin # ML1465DAT
    The metal piece you are talking about on the Master Lock Pivot Lock Hitch Pin # ML1465DAT has no structural significance and is there only to help secure the pin to the packaging. You can go ahead and remove it so that it is out of the way!

  • What Material are Hitch Pins Made of?
    A 5/8" diameter hitch pin is usually made of steel, though some have coatings applied to help resist corrosion. For example, the Master Lock Pivot Lock Hitch Pin for 2" Hitches # ML1465DAT is made of stainless steel, but there is also a version - the Master Lock Pivot Lock Hitch Pin for 2" Hitches # ML1495DAT - which is a chrome-plated steel hitch pin with a chrome-plated aluminum barrel. Another example would be the MaxxTow Hitch Pin and Clip for 2" Hitches # MT70053 which is made of...

  • Recommended Easy to Use Hitch Pin For 2 Inch Receiver
    We have a really cool solution for you, but you should not use a round linchpin as they are not designed for use with a standard 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. So you'll want to go with a standard hitch pin, and we do have an option for one that is super simple to use and doesn't have an R-clip like the Curt Pin & Clip # C21510, for example. In fact, it doesn't use a clip at all, and the part I'm referring to is from Master Lock, and it's called a Pivot Lock, which is available in either...

  • Stainless Steel Hitch Pin and Clip or Rubber Handle Hitch Pin and Clip for 2 Inch Hitches
    For a stainless steel hitch pin I recommend the Master Lock Pivot Lock Hitch Pin for 2" Hitches - 5/8" Diameter - Stainless Steel # ML1465DAT. The Master Lock pin is really nice because it doesn't need a separate clip, it has a rotating barrel at the end which you turn to keep the clip securely in place. For a hitch pin and clip with a rubber grip the best option is the Curt Pin and Clip For Class III, IV and V Trailer Hitch Receiver with Rubberized Plastic Grip # C21510. This is a zinc-plated...

  • Locking Hitch Pin For A 2021 Ford F-150
    The BOLT Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches # BL7018447 will work for all models of your 2021 Ford F-150, and will utilize the center cut key usually found inside the key fob itself. If you do not have a center cut key on your key fob, and you do not want to carry another key, I recommend the Master Lock Pivot Lock Hitch Pin for 2" Hitches # ML1465DAT. This has a built in clip that ensures you do not lose it, however this isn't the most secure option because anyone could...

If you need an additional 5/8” hitch pin I would recommend the Buyers Products # 337HP6256WC hitch pin with clip . If you prefer a locking hitch pin then the Master Lock # ML1465DAT will work well. If your F350 has a 2-1/2” receiver then the Fastway # DTADP25-SS sleeve would work for your purpose. If you want a locking hitch...

  • Is Aluminum Ball Mount Compatible With Stainless Steel Hitch Ball For 2 Inch Hitch
    Yes, you can absolutely use an aluminum ball mount with a stainless steel hitch ball without worry of the ball mount corroding. In fact, there are no aluminum hitch balls so manufacturers suggest the use of stainless steel as it is going to be the best option work in conjunction with an aluminum ball mount. So what you will need depends on the rise or drop your trailer requires: - 1" Rise, 2" Drop: Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # C74WR - 3" Rise, 4" Drop: Curt Ball Mount for 2" Hitches...
