Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (165 Customer Reviews)

King pin lock deters towaway theft of your fifth-wheel trailer. Heavy-duty aluminum collar fits around your trailer's king pin and secures with the chrome-plated, pick-proof steel lock. Can be keyed alike to match other etrailer locks.


The lock was very easy to install! I received the original lock minus a key. I made a call and spoke to Neil, and had another order issued for a replacement lock and received within a week. I am very happy with the product and the service that etrailer provided.


Perfect. Fits right into the slot on the kingpin. It will be a good deterrent for the not so good doers to move on

Maureen M.


Still doing its job. If I dont have the tripod hooked up, I have this kingpin lock on


It works as it should. Not a whole lot to complain about. The locking mechanism itself is a little strange in that once you insert the key you have to use the key to unscrew the lock, it's not just a twist and unlock. You have to use the key to thread the locking end off and on. A bit odd.


Fits great, seems to fill the bill perfectly. Sure adds a degree of comfort when I leave my trailer unattended for a while.

Scott H.


Same as before. Still like it. While you cant ever stop the committed criminal, this does add the level of complexity that may dissuade them.


Well made, easy to take on and off. Gives me peace of mind knowing that someone can’t hook up to my trailer and take off with it. It’s part of my routine wither at home or traveling it goes on when I’m set up.


Have not used it yet, but it looks strong and dependable.
I will let you know if I have any problems.


Fits very snug. I help with peace of mind with all of the thieves these days. The unit attaches securely to the king pin. It will slow someone down.


Good quality and fit. Easy to use



The king pin lock is still working great


Love it. Use it as a theft deterrent on a ag trailer, that uses a hitch pin.


Great product for peace of mind, especially when you have your trailer at a storage lot!


The King pin lock was exactly what I needed to feel secure with my 5th Wheel. I ordered the King Pin Lock and came quickly and the price was best. I have since sold my 5th wheel with the lock. Thank you for make my purchase easy.


Pair of matching key coupler locks. Great product


Easy to use with simple but effective design. Great price.


I ordered this lock for my RV, and I am very pleased with the product. Easy installation and operation, I would recommend this product to secure your king pin.



Great, with all the trailers of all kinds being stolen lately this product has protected my personal property!


This device will not sit deeply enough on our pin to allow the locking pi to be inserted. Maybe the weld fillet on the pin "cap" is to large.

I will have Customer Service reach out to you. If you can send us a picture of the lock and pin we can see what the issue is.


Just what I wanted. Excellent delivery time.


So far so good for our new 5’er. Little weird how you have to turn key (around - around) to undo the lock but will get use to it.


The pin lock fit's good and every pleased with it


This lock appears to be of top quality. The locking bar is thick the full length of the bar. Not like some that are thin where the lock attaches. Should not be able to use a pipe to pry and snap the lock part off like can be done with cheap hitch ball type locks.Another thing is the key lock is very unique. If you give someone the key they probably will not figure out how it actually works. Good thing I read the directions. Overall I am impressed.


5th Wheel King Pin Lock arrived and I must say it is exactly as described on your site. Fits perfectly and the lock is heavy duty.


I was in search for a way to secure my fifth wheel and found and found just what I was looking for.
The product works great and was shipped quickly and the price was right as well.
Thank you as I will purchase from you again if I am in need of anything else for my camper.


I use this pin lock with my fifth wheel trailer used in the UK. Works perfectly. It is a requirement of my insurance to have a pin lock and this fits the bill. I always carry some disposable gloves as otherwise you can't avoid the grease when fitting and removing. Overall an excellent product.


Easy to install. I have my fifth wheel hitch in all summer for my RV so its great to have 1 hitch


This 5th wheel lock is light in weight and fits the king pin perfectly.It is a good product.The only thing that I'm worried about is the screw/key mechanism.I guess you need to keep it greased to keep it from getting rusty being it is out in the weather.


Got it on time. Seems like a quality item. The key is actually a screw driver and not a key in the traditional sense. It’s a screw on lock. There should have been directions so that I didn’t spend 5 minutes wondering why turning the key 1/2 way didn’t unlock the device.

  • Replacement 5th Wheel King Pin Lock
    I have a solution for you but Curt does not offer replacement keys for their 5th wheel hitch locks. I recommend replacing it with the etrailer 5th Wheel King Pin Lock - Keyed Alike item # e98896. It includes two reversible, automotive-style keys. The locks can be keyed-alike to match other etrailer locks. If the Curt pin lock is on your 5th wheel and you have lost the keys you can drill the tumblers out of the lock. The best way to do that is to start with a smaller diameter bit and work...

  • Lock Recommendation for Sidewinder King Pin
    I recommend taking a look at the etrailer 5th Wheel Trailer King Pin Lock, # e98896. This low profile lock only uses the indented portion of the king pin where the jaws of the fifth hitch would latch so you should have no interference with the wedge for your Sidewinder. I have included a picture and a short video for you.

  • What are the Maximum and Minimum Air Pressures PSI for a Lippert Trailair Pin Box?
    I'm not familiar with the part number you mentioned, but according to Lippert, the air pressure for Trailair pin boxes like # LC155943 range from 20 to 120 psi. Lippert does not recommend a specific air pressure because it will vary for each application. After the pin box is installed, go ahead and hook up the trailer on level ground. There is a sticker on the front shock absorber that is used to ensure proper inflation. You should inflate the airbags until the arrows on the sticker meet...

  • King Pin Lock That Fits Sidewinder or Revolution King Pin
    There is a lock that will work for your Sidewinder, but the collar on the Blaylock EZ Lock King Pin Lock # BLTL-70, though the Blaylock's collar is going to interfere due to the design; if you take a look at the accompanying photo you can see how close the wedge and king pin are. Instead, I recommend the Master Lock 5th Wheel Trailer King Pin Lock # e98896. The reason why is the # e98896 will fit around the king pin and not interfere with the wedge on a Sidewinder.

  • Will the Trailair Rota-Flex 5th Wheel Pin Box Fit On My Trailer
    The first thing you will want to do is go out to the pin box that is now installed on your Forest River Cardinal 3250. There should be a make and model number on it, if it is a Lippert 1621 or 1621HD then the Trailair Rota-Flex 5th Wheel Box Pin # LC328330 pin box will be able to replace your current pin box. Based on the part number of your existing pin box, it was most definitely a 1621 originally. Something else that I recommend getting is our 5th Wheel Trailer King Pin...

  • Trimax King Pin Lock TMX56RR Does Not Fit - What Lock Is Recommended Instead?
    Since the Trimax # TMX56RR did not fit, I recommend taking a look at the etrailer 5th Wheel King Pin Lock # e98896. I like this lock because it is designed to be universal, and will fit virtually any pin box with a standard kingpin. The collar of the lock is 1-1/2" tall, which allows for a secure fit, even on Pin boxes like the Morryde RPB72-FD where space may be limited. These locks can also be keyed alike, if you want to order multiple locks that use the same key.

  • Theft Prevention Recommendations for a 5th Wheel Trailer
    You could remove your breakaway switch pin while your trailer is in storage, however, a determined thief will get what they want in the end. If he went through the trouble to break in and attempt steal your trailer, it would not be a problem for him to simply cut the wires from the breakaway switch. Cutting the wires from the breakaway switch would be fast and easy. Another factor to consider is that the battery will only last for a short time and it will drain completely. Leaving the...

  • Is a King Pin Lock and The Demco Autoslide Locking Plate Meant to Be Used Together?
    The AMPLock King Pin Lock for 5th Wheel Trailers # AMP77FR you mention is for deterring theft, while the Demco Autoslide Locking Plate for MOR/ryde Pin Boxes # DM6025 is designed to prevent your king pin from pivoting inside your hitch. The two would not be used interchangeably and are meant to be used separately. So when you're towing you'd use # DM6025, and when you get to your campsite and unhitch you'd use # AMP77FR to protect your king pin. You could also use a smaller lock like...

  • Lock for B and W Companion Hitch that Fits Ram Rail Kit and King Pin Lock for Grand Design
    I spoke with my contact at B and W and while they do not have a specific locking pin for the head on the Companion hitch # BWRVK3600 we can help. You could replace one of the pins with Kuat lock # HL1. It is a 5/16 inch diameter so it would fit loose in the 3/8 hole. The span of the pin is 3-1/2 inches. Then for a king pin lock you could use the etrailer 5th Wheel King Pin Lock part # e98896.

  • King Pin Locks Compatible With PullRite Superglide Capture Plates
    The Trimax King Pin Lock # TMX56RR can still be used with your 5th wheel having a capture plate from PullRite. The capture plate mounts to the top of the kingpin and only takes up a similar amount of space that a Lube Plate # RP83002 would. If you happen to have one of the few capture plates which also has a funnel type block welded near the king pin you would want to consider a lock like the etrailer # e98896 as it does not have the section which slides over the top of the king pin channel.

  • Availability of Locking 5th Wheel Pin Kit that is Keyed Alike
    I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately we do not have any kits available for locking up your 5th wheel setup. Instead what you can use is the Tow Ready Base Rail Lock # TR63254, along with the 5th Wheel Coupler Lock # e98896, and the Master Lock Padlock # ML4140LH. These don't have the ability to be keyed alike, but they will provide you with locks to the points that you mentioned.
