The items that I ordered from etrailer arrive very quickly and were exactly what I needed. Customer service gets an AAA rating. Items are of good quality and look great on my new 2022 Ford Explorer ST!


Doesn't fit 2021 Tundra 2" receiver as it's too short and locking mechanism won't engage. However it does fit our 03 Tacoma so I'll keep it.

For the Toyota Tacoma with has a thicker 2 inch OEM receiver, I recommend part # e98881
etrailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches - Flush - 3-5/8" Span - Chrome
which has a 3.62 inch span.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 06/16/2022


The product seems good, but I ordered two and they were supposed to be keyed alike, but they were not. Also, the second one does not fit through the threaded hole on the Thule bike rack I had also previously ordered. It takes a smaller diameter than what was purchased. Not sure what size it takes.


Straight out of the box looks and feels great. Fits nice and snug inside the 2" Curt hitch receiver. Too early to comment on service life and durability under wet weather conditions but hope for good desired outcome.

No issues after a year of use and exposure to rain and frequent car wash treatments. Thanks for checking and you are welcome
UOO D - 01/01/2017


Nice and sturdy but has seized up after only a handful of uses over a year’s time. It lives in my garage most of the time but I used it over the weekend and it was raining and that must have been too much for it. Key inserts but will not turn. I’m assuming corroded. Will try WD40 and then will have to try to cut it off. Absolutely should NOT have failed this quickly.


The smaller items were just tossed in the larger box with the receiver. So the box has several holes in it and the wiring harness was laying on the ground next to it when delivered. Also, the locking pin was well overpriced.


Most will never believe this, but i ordered this locking pin to use in conjunction with the other pin that is the exact same as this one. Except the 1st pin has been installed and in service since late 2009. I used it to hold a hitch in the receiver tube of my motorhome that coupled our hauler trailer to the motorhome. I recently decided we would start flat towing a car, instead of the hauler trailer with the expedition on it.
so i needed one more locking hitch pin to use with the tow bar rise/drop receiver adapter. When i removed the first pin, i expected it to be rusty and not unlockable. SURPRISE, a little wd 40 in the key hole to aid in key insertion and BAM she unlocked and was clean as a whistle.
it was a no brainer to order an exact duplicate for use now.

still works perfect
Robert - 03/26/2020


Everything worked out well. On time and fits perfect. Attach hitch setup and my new Ridgeline.
It comes with a 2" inch receiver and I have a full compliment of 1.25. stuff from my previous car. All from etrailer i must admit!
so I needed the 2-1.25 reducer, a good lock, and the 7-4 reducer for my goodies!
Thanks for the grest service

great it is used a lot
Ralph - 08/23/2021


This device works great - sturdy construction, easy to use. Gives me that little bit more peace of mind knowing no one is going to easily walk off with my trailer hitch (not that I ever worried about that) or my bike rack (the rack cost me a few bucks and it's nice knowing it's secured with a not easily cut receiver lock.


the hitch lock i got with that order was useless (for now) to me because it was sold compatible with the Lock N Roll Articulating trailer hitch item 336VS501 that i bought from you 2-3 yrs ago; but actually it is for a bigger hole.
I do not want to make the hole bigger on the Lock N Roll because there is no much room there, so i will have to get a less diameter lock later on.

The Lock N Roll Articulating trailer hitch part # 336VS501
Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitch for 2" Receivers - Vehicle Side - 11,000 lbs
uses two different pin sizes. The latching pin has a diameter of one half inch while the hitch pin hole diameter is five eights. This lock is meant to be used with the hitch pin hole diameter.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 03/02/2022


Seems decent enough, just an unusual locking mechanism, the key turns a threaded screw that needs to be rotated many times to engage it. Don't have the key on a ring or it will be difficult to turn it the required number of times. Loose keys get lost, thankfully they provide 2


Ordered trailer and tire locks with keyed same. All 4 locks arrived with different keys. Tried calling after 15 phone wait was told their systems are down internally. I should call back tomorrow. And wait again? I asked the support person if they could call me about an incorrect order received - was told no I need to call then again tomorrow. I don’t think so, I’ll return the order and buy from another online store.


Great products, easy to order via website and quick shipping!!


Excellent fit and finish. Unit is stout and veery well made. Still looks great one year out (truck lives in garage when not driven). Changing from one ball size to the next is easy and fast. Pin requires a small amount of lube every couple months to keep everything smooth and functions as good today as when new. Chrome finish on balls is holding up well.

I use the hitch couple times a week so I do not keep in the stowed position, however, the stowed position is very clean and would an excellent feature for those who tow infrequently.

Overall, very happy with this hitch. Much prefer this unit over storing and changing out the yoke as before.


Does what its supposed to do and no issues. I recommend this for any one that needs a hitch lock.


These work okay. It's also nice being able to have all of the locks keyed the same.
I purchased two, One for a 2-5/16" coupler a year earlier and this one for a 2" coupler. The larger one is still working okay, but this one failed after about 9 months. Not sure if defective or poor quality. Waiting to see how the other one holds up.


Impressive locking bolt! This item meets and exceeds my initial impressions and security requirements for a sound and secure locking pin. Let’s get it on the road and see how she runs! Kudos to Jessie at etrailer customer service for making this purchase recommendation- what a breeze!


Lock core works great still and functions as it should, more rust on the Pin portion then I would have expected in a year


So far, so good! I got to drive in a friend's car behind my car that had the carrier on it- there was no wobbling at all and it sat a good distance off the ground. Glad I made this purchase.


My husband is a proud Bluewater Vietnam Navy Veteran, celebrating his 50th year anniversary of coming home. My husband is retired & I decided to get a trailer hitchcover for his old truck, to compliment his combat veteran's license plate.
While searching for a unique, eye catching hitchcover, I came across The cover I chose is eye catching, unique & a sturdy heavy plastic. It was easy to install & the lock, purchased with it, will keep it in place!
He loved the cover - and the price! PS: Still young at heart!


This receiver lock gives me peace of mind. I have confidence that it will at least deter someone who's out looking for an easy steal.


High quality merchandise, thanks etrail


Great lock and it screws in. Very positive.

is 1st class and the USMC emblem is perfect.


I've had two of these locks and are on a summer rig, work great, no problems so far.


This is my third time buying this Lock for my third vehicle best Lock for the money This Lock survive a major accident

  • How Visible Is Writing on Cowboy Butts Drive Me Nuts Hitch Cover
    The Cowboy Butts Drive Me Nuts 2-inch Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover from Knockout does feature highly-legible print that can be read from a distance. I linked a photo showing this cover installed on a pickup; you'll see that even from an angle the written message is pretty clear. I know someone who used this hitch cover for a little prank on his pal, a pal that does not happen to actually care for cowboy butts, and I can assure you that the cover was readily noticed!

  • How to Remove the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Part # e98880

Once the key has been inserted into the locking cylinder you will then need to rotate it counterclockwise until the threaded section is no longer attached. You may need to hold the opposite end of the lock to help keep it from spinning with the locking core. You can see this process done in the video I have attached for you.

  • Removing Corroded Hitch Lock
    If liquid wrench or a WD-40 or PB Blaster type product did not work, you will have to cut off the lock. I have taken them off with little difficulty using a Dremel Tool or an angle grinder with a cut-off wheel. Make sure to wear eye protection. Some will recommend trying a torch to heat the lock, but that will just mess up the tumblers and you will have to cut it off eventually.
