Got a $300 3-ball hitch mount and with this lock I don't have to worry about it hitching a ride in someone else's truck. Thanks for the quick ship too.

This lock works as designed and is very sturdy. Highly recommended.

Needed to replace my angled locking hitch pin. It was old and I didn’t like the way it was wearing into the hitch receiver. This straight through locking pin is perfect and easy to install.

I bought trailer locks and receiver locks all keyed alike and they are top notch. When I bought a new truck with a class V hitch I needed a new lock and this one came in quickly and keyed the same.



- e98881

Very nice design for a 2.5" Receiver. The key locks a threaded connection, not a gate type lock. My old Master Lock froze up terribly over time. I hope this will not, but time will tell. Looks good on my 2017 F250 Super Duty.


Comments
Both products are still performing and looking great. I’ve had numerous people ask where I got them and I tell them to check out etrailer.com before they buy locally.

Before ordering the locking hitch pin online I spoke with etrailer customer service. Extremely helpful customer service. I ordered the product for a 2015 Tundra Platinum. Pin was oversized like I needed, and was not a problem. Put a couple of rubber washers on each side of the pin to help with the slack and noise caused by vibration. Works like a champ. Love the key system on this pin. I would recommend it for Tundra owners who have the oversized heavy duty factory hitch on their truck. Etrailer shipped the product very quickly and had excellent follow up communications after the sale. I would not hesitate to buy from etrailer again.

This is just one of many products I have purchased from etrailer.com. I have always been happy with the service and quick shipping. All the products are good quality and fit my vehicles exactly. This hitch receiver lock works well and was an exact fit. The quality is exceptional and the price was good. The lock is a good anti-theft deterrent and well made.



- e98881
by:

This is a very nice lock for my hitch. It's made well and doesn't have too many plastic parts at all like the cheap ones from discount stores. I live in the north so it does have a bit of surface rust on it so next time I'll buy the stainless steel lock but all in all, I think this lock is a keeper. 5 Stars *****



- e98881
by:

This product is exactly what I needed for my Toyota Tacoma truck. The previous item that I had purchased, and subsequently returned, wasn't long enough to go through the hitch receiver and be locked. The RG5-XL was actually long enough and I put a water hose rubber gasket on both ends before and after going through the hitch to "snug it up" so It wouldn't rattle. Very Happy with this product and my hitch item won't get stolen.

Best hitch receiver lock on the market. Priced right. I use this lock on my Ram 2500 with a 2 1/2” receiver.It’s easy on and off. Dust cap is great as it keeps the lock key hole from getting clogged I ordered this lock from Etrailer and received it quickly Great product

Works great and provides security and peace of mind. Sprayed a little WD-40 in the lock to prevent any rust. with the this application and the cover, no rain nor snow will damage it.

Package arrived late. It took longer to get from the UPS center which is less than 5 miles away than it did to get from the original location.

nice solid lock to secure a hitch cover we had ordered,arrived on time and packaged well.An all around good ordering experience



- e98881
by:

This pin is certainly heavier duty than ones I’ve bought in the past. I have no doubt based on the quality of this pin that it will last a very long time. The only gripe I’d have is that you have to hold the lock cylinder while trying to turn the key. These things aren’t in an area with the most space. Then, after you’ve added some lithium grease or anti-seize, it is a little hard to hold still while you turn the key. Other than that, this pin is top quality.



- e98881
by:

This lock is heavy and appears to be of high quality. I purchased this along with a new adjustable hitch. My hopes are that it will prevent someone from stealing my new hitch. It should at least deter them. My order arrived in 2 days. Considering all the delays due to covid, I was delighted with the delivery time. The customer service was outstanding. I would highly recommend etrailer for all your trailering needs.

Lock works as advertised. Very solid and sturdy receiver lock. Would buy again.

Replaced my old 'rust infected' locks with these new ones. So far no sign of rust on either of these locks. Best of all for a couple of bucks extra I got them keyed alike, so one less key on my ring!

fits like it should, but may be hard to remove from receiver

Great product. Easy install. Great customer service provided by Ashley E. Ashley assisted me in ordering this one as the other hitch receiver lock was to short for the Toyota Tundra. She even made returning the wrong item easy.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hitch Lock

  • Long Adjustable Ball Mount For 11,000 lb Trailer
    So there isn't a 6 inch hitch extender for a 2 inch hitch that has an 11,000 lb capacity and 1,200 lb tongue weight capacity, and hitch extenders also reduce the capacity of your hitch by 50 percent, so they are generally just used for accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers. That means the best option we can offer is a ball mount with an extended reach, which may work for you depending on the distance you need. The longest ball mount that has the capacity you need is from BulletProof...

    The Replacement Key (Pair) for etrailer Hitch and Coupler Locks # e98924 is what you need. You will simply put LB30 in the box on the page and then select the size of the hitch lock from the drop down just below that. This will ensure you get the correct replacement keys (pair).

  • Best Lock For Cargo Carrier Security
    If you have our cargo carrier # e98874 then use the threaded hitch pin lock # e99047. If you have another cargo carrier, get this non threaded locking hitch pin # e98881. I like these better because they are pick proof and better than cable locks in my opinion. Cable locks can be cut with high end cutters but these locks will need a grinder of sorts and won't be as discrete when cutting through.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Lock Pin for a 2019 Honda CR-V
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13397 is a great option for a 2019 Honda CR-V. In regards to a hitch pin lock, most bike racks come with their own hitch pin so the only time you'd need to purchase a separate hitch pin lock is if you were using an accessory such as a ball mount. In which case, you can use the etrailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # e98881.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock With At Least a 3" Span for a 2-1/2" Receiver
    The etrailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches # e98881 is capable of a maximum span of 3-5/8". The Harley-Davidson 3D Chrome Logo 2" Trailer Hitch Cover # HDHC13 is designed for a 2" receiver and it sounds like your truck does have a 2-1/2" receiver. A Reese Titan Reducer Sleeve 2-1/2" to 2" # 58102 will help to center the cover and keep it from bouncing and sliding around inside your 2-1/2" receiver tube.

    So the answer is yes, with your 2-1/2 inch receiver you will still be able to use the Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack # TH83JV. You are correct, however, that the your standard hitch reducer sleeve isn't going to work, so what you will need instead is a different reducer from Brophy: - Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender - 2-1/2" to 2" Trailer Hitch # HR26 Because it extends out, what this Brophy adapter does is essentially give you a 2" hitch on your F-250 so you can mount the T2 Pro #...

    The extra bracing on the sides of the receiver tube on the OEM hitch on your 2012 Silverado 2500 HD causes most standard hitch locks to be too short to work.

  • Hitch Lock for 2018 Toyota Tacoma
    For your 2018 Toyota Tacoma you said 3 inch lock, which I assume was the inside diameter of the lock. The bit of extra width on the receiver of your Tacoma is what is causing it to be tight and difficult to lock so the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98881, which measures 3-5/8", should work perfectly for you.
