Silent Hitch Pin DiagramSilent Hitch Pin Close Up

Place the block inside your ball mount or hitch accessory, and line up the hole in the block with the pin hole in your ball mount. Slide your ball mount into your hitch and insert the hitch pin. To activate the anti-rattle device, just twist the pin with the included wrench to tighten it down. Doing this will pull the accessory up against the wall of your hitch receiver, thus keeping the accessory from moving around inside your hitch. No more annoying clanking or vibrating.

The barrel-style lock goes on the end of the anti-rattle pin to provide security for your hitch-mounted accessories. Two round keys are included with the lock. A sturdy rubber dust cap comes attached to the barrel lock so that you can easily cover the lock cylinder, thus ensuring that no dirt or grime will get in to damage the lock.

Video Transcript for Lets Go Aero Locks 63232 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 63232. This is the Let's Go Aero Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches. This is going to be used in place of your standard pin and clip. It's going to help prevent theft of your ball mount or hitch mount accessory so you can secure items like your bike rack, your cargo carrier, your hitch cover and other hitch mount accessories to your trailer hitch. It's also going to function as an anti-rattle pin. It's going to reduce the play and vibration that we sometimes experience from within the hitch as we travel down the road. It's going to come with two barrel style keys.

That's going to control the locking portion right here. That makes it very difficult to pick for those people that might be interested in stealing your items. This is a great design to have and it's got the nice little dust cap on there which is weather resistant. It's going to keep the cylinder free of dirt and debris and really limit the amount of moisture that gets in the lock core. The unit is going to be made from a sturdy steel construction.

Everything is going to have a zinc finish on it so it's going to be corrosion resistant. Again this is designed for 2" by 2" trailer hitch receivers. The only requirement is that your ball mount or hitch accessory must have a hollow shank in order for the threaded block in the spring system to be installed in. The pin diameter on the unit is going to measured around 5/8" and the inside pin length so that usable space that we have or the span once this is fully installed is you need to make sure that from outside edge to outside edge of your hitch, that that measurement doesn't exceed 2-5/8". In order for this to work it needs to be underneath that measurement. Let's go ahead and assemble the unit together. It's also going to come with a starter wrench if you don't have any tools and this will be a great option for you.

I'm going to take our hollow ball mount and what I want to do is I want to begin by installing the block and the spring. All you have to do is compress the spring, place it into your hollow shank. Once we have it in there, we're going to push it in until we get that hole in the block to line up with the hole in the shank here on our ball mount. Once we have that set we're ready to go ahead and install it in our hitch. We'll go ahead and do that as well. Simply take it go ahead and slide it in.

Line up our pinholes and I'm going to go and take the threaded portion right here. Now, it's going to have a lock nut on there too or excuse me, a lock washer so it's really going to offer a nice tight secure fit. We're going to place that through and we're just going to go ahead and start threading that down. We're just going to get it hand tight for now. Pretty snug right there and then on the other side, I'm going to go ahead to take our lock. Just going to go ahead and put our keys in the cor. Push it on the end all the way down and then move it to a locked position and then close up the dust cap. Now our hitch mounted accessory is locked to our hitch. Now all I have left to do is simply just tighten this down for a nice tight secure fit. You can see right now, I'm going to loosen that back up but I already took out some of the play so you can see we have a little bit of play in our hitch as I tight this down it's going to remove that rattle and there is no need to get it super tight. All you got to do is get it snug. You want to make sure that lock washer kind of compresses together. Just get it hand tight using that tool. Now when we try to shake it, you can see that we really don't really have any wobble or rattle from within the receiver tube of the hitch. That's going to do it for our look at product number 63232.

UPDATE : Originally posted that it was to short and could not get the lock on . I called and Ricky advised to remove the split washer to see if that would allow the lock to fit . When I tried to remove the pin , the threads must have stripped and the pin would not move . After splitting a 5/8 socket and cracking a 16 inch cheater socket bar , the shaft broke in the nut ( which is inside the receiver ) . It is spring loaded , so my wife pushed on the nut & spring from one side , protruding the shaft out the other side and I was able to cut through the shaft . This took more than 2 hours to accomplish . Unable to get in contact with Ricky again , I called the general customer service # , advised them of all of this and they are sending me return label . Upon ordering this item , I called and ask about some reviewers who had had similar problems = They advised the company had changed from coarse threads to fine threads and it was no longer a problem . They advised they were sorry this happened , but now I also need to replace a 5/8 socket and 16 inch socket bar... I do not recommend this locking anti tilt hitch pin 210038

I was disappointed in the performance of this item. Although it is a good design, and does almost completely eliminate side to side carrier movement within the receiver, I experienced the same problem that a number of other individuals experienced. That is that once tightened in place within the carrier tube when it is mounted to the receiver, the threads on the blot had cross threaded with the large nut, and no amount of force was able to unscrew the blot form the nut. Eventually I was able to get the bolt out by cutting both exposed ends of the blot with a cut-off wheel on a dremel drill (space was very limited due to the design of the factory hitch on my 2015 Wrangler) and then use a center punch to force the remaining section of bolt back into the tube, allowing the carrier tube to be removed form the receiver. I read more of the many reviews for this item, and I see that others have had this exact difficulty. I think the problem is either in the quality of the material, or in the threading process of the bolt /nut. Either way, I have decided to stay away from this design. 187849

This is the PERFECT solution for eliminating hitch-mounted carrier movement and noise. The product is dirt-simple to install, just place and align the spring nut into the carrier's hollow shank, install the carrier, insert the pin and snug it down with the provided tool, then lock everything in place! Everything is safe and secure. No more movement. No more noise. And no chance of carrier theft. Thanks for a great customer experience. 81672


A year later, and everythings still perfect with the Lets Go Aero Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock!

by: Thor - NorCal01/19/2015 shipping sucks. Every single package that I have received from has arrived at my house with boxes stuffed inside more boxes that do not fit properly and cause the boxes to get smooshed together. It's a miracle that the product inside the boxes were not damaged. Boxes arrive at the house with parts of the cardboard missing or peeled off or flaps ripped open or looking like an accordion. As for the product, having survived its perilous journey, it works as designed. Stops vibration, thus stopping noise. I should probably sound more thrilled, but I have never had a hitch accessory rattle on me thus I don't have a before and after comparison. I was fortunate to have found this item before installing any hitch accessories on my vehicle. Final won't be disappointed. The wrench that comes with it is worthless. Don't bother with the included wrench. Install it using a ratchet with appropriate socket. Keep the wrench in the vehicle for emergencies. Buy it and enjoy! 170430

I can only rate how easy it was to install as I won't use till late sept. but I read reviews and I will be keeping an eye on keeping the nut tight. ETRAILER shipped very fast as always. 97807


lock is working good the rattling noise is gone I still check the nut each time I hook up, I say it is a good product. The wrench is a bit weak but I replaced it with a craftsman.

I installed the anti-rattle tow hitch pin as soon as I got it. It really locks the Swagman bicycle carrier in place so there is no side-to-side movement. I have not yet driven with it for any distance to see if the pin loosens up due to road vibration, but I expect that it will not. 131245


Works great. Hitch lock does not loosen after driving, even on a bumpy road.

I bought this to lock up a hitch extension to a hitch extension that I didn't want to be stolen. Many thanks to eTrailer for helping me out on this. I had originally ordered a hitch lock that was not compatible with my setup. Customer Service emailed me before shipping the order, and I was able to change the order before buying the wrong item. The lock comes with two keys, and the anti-rattle mechanism works well. After installation, there is NO side to side movement between the extension and the hitch. I did notice a slight amount of up and down movement, but I installed a quiet hitch in conjunction with this item, which eliminated all movement entirely. It's a solid device for the money. I did not give it top marks, because of the slight up and down movement. Don't let that stop you, though. I'm just really picky. 10533

A bit on the pricey side, but does what it advertises. Happy with the product after using on a few camping trips. I have this cargo carrier: We load it down with hundreds of pounds of camping equipment and use the hitch lock to secure it from moving. We also camp in the backcountry using poor access roads at times and the lock keeps the heavy loads from shifting on uneven terrain. I would recommend this product to anyone that is using either a bike rack or cargo carrier and is trying to reduce movement of the accessory. 145780

Today I tried to install the anti-rattle trailer hitch lock. Everything went smooth until I tried to tighten the last half turn. Sensing something was wrong I tried to remove the lock. The cheap wrench was useless so I used a long handle torque wrench. This was successful in breaking the bolt. Apparently the bolt had become cross threaded within the nut. As it is inside the tube it is actually very difficult to see what actually happened. In order to remove the opposite end which was still hung in in my bike tube I had to use a pair of vice grips. Do not order this product. It is a joke. I was successful in talking with etrailer which is going to refund my money. I will now try a Thule anti rattle lock from etrailer. More expensive so I assume that it will do the job. 208907

Seems to work somewhat as advertised. Side to side motion is eliminated but up and down motion is still there, although lessened. 146702


Still working the about same. Shimmed the up down and tightened the bolt to keep out more of the vibration. Lock seems a little fussy.

This item is awesome! The Anti-Rattle Device and Lock for 2" Trailer Hitches is great for use with cargo carriers. When using normal hitch locking pins, there's too much up & down, left to right movement for the cargo carriers. Using this anti rattle lock completely eliminates side to side movement, and greatly reduces the up and down movement. It helps a lot with reducing your cargo carriers from jumping up when you hit a bump. It's easy to install, the one thing that I stress is, when you're removing the anti rattle lock, REMEMBER to UNLOCK it before you untighten it. I untightened it before unlocking it, and by "over" untightening it, I damaged the internal lock and I was unable to unlock it. I eventually had to cut it off. 1800

This product was hard to fit into my curt hitch/curt carrier. However, once it was in, it worked like a charm. It fits so tight that it really wouldn't matter if it was a locking hitch or not. (poor attempt at a joke) I didn't have any rattling or fear that my carrier was going to be stolen. If anything, just having it gave me a peace of mind. It was incredibly easy to install. Just slip the part with the spring into whatever your mounting, slide it into the hitch, and slip the remaining parts in, screw, lock, done. Simple. The not-so-simple was attempting to put the remaining parts in with how tight a fit it was, had to loosen it a bit, then place them in. Not a big deal, and certainly not a reason to not purchase it. 218874

Good but could be better This worked as advertised, with a couple of issues that could be fixed. It came with a star-type lockwasher that would have torn up the paint on my Receiver. I replaced with a copper washer and got no damage but it loosened twice on my trip (about 2000 miles). I can see a couple ways to stop it vibrating loose without using a star washer. The lock works well, but I would have preferred the cylinder to exit at 90 degrees from the pin, so you can crouch down and reach it. As it is, you have to crawl under the car to unlock it. The idea is great, and I would say it's worth what I paid, a couple improvements would make it much better. Haven't had long enough to commennt on Reliability. 1897

Nice device I was not happy about this at first. I could not get it tight enough. The "wrench" that comes with it is an absolute joke. Use it to impress your wife and kids by tightening the device using the wrench and they will be amazed at your muscle prowess when you bend it. Then throw the "wrench" away and use a socket and breaker bar to tighten it. I think I can say this because (which I use for all my trailer needs) doesn't offer a similar product. I have used this anti-rattle device with a Schuck Cushion Hitch and the combination is incredible. I tow a boat with a hydraulic surge brake setup with UFP A60 coupler and it is night and day difference w/o this combination setup. 3253

Been doing quite a bit of small moves in past several month utilizing tow package on my Jeep Grand Cherokee and U-Haul ramp trailers. My Reese ball mount shank slaps around in my standard two inch receiver tube--loud. And slap can be felt up into the front seat. Researched available solutions. The etrailer anti-rattle device and lock was one of the best priced and seemed to offer a benefit of having lock for security when needed. I used it yesterday for four short local hauls and was 100% satisfied. Easy install and performed flawless. Based on my short experience with this product I give it three thumbs up. 77941

Used this product on my Curt Class 4 hitch with 2" receiver and a 2" ball mount. I was getting too much noise when towing my small 5x8 utility trailer (425 lbs empty). It would bounce and so would the ball mount. This anti rattle device did the trick. I took the trailer on a 6 hour round trip (3 hr empty, 3 hr fully loaded at 1500lbs) and there were no issues. I do want to mention I torqued the device to 50ft lbs instead of the max 40ft lbs recommend. My torque wrench only goes as low as 50 and that did not cause any issues. Recommend this to my family and friends who also do some towing occasionally. 168282

Installed the nut and finger treaded the bolt into the assembly and nut. Once finger tight used the wench to tighten it all up. Upon removal I was unable to loosen the bolt with the wench. Working the bolt with a socket wrench I was able to get the bolt out but treads on both the bolt and the nut are damaged. I'm amazed that this big bolt and nut could be stripped so easily. 177408


I had exactly the same problem!

I learned about this product when searching for a way to eliminate the rattle and sway of my Hidden Hitch Class III 2" Ball Mount that I am using to mount my Swagman XC Tow Mount Bike Rack on the back of my RV. The recommendations at eTrailer helped me figure out exactly what to do by using this Anti-Rattle pin and lock! And, coupled with the Road Master Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches - RM-061 - there is no sway from left or right and no up or down movement either!!! Items came quickly and work in tandem perfectly. My bikes ride solid and safe! Be sure to periodically check the bolt tightness. 158840

by: Bob G.12/09/2013

This product works very well - and I'm very pleased with my purchase. One minor improvement I'd like to see, is a heavier gauge spring - attached to the metal block. The current spring is a bit light weight, and seems it could fall out of the hitch mount when not in use. A heavier gauge spring (one which is still easy to compress into the mount) might hold in place better when the mount is not attached to the hitch. Nonetheless, this is a great product. It holds my bike rack in place very well - with no rattle. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! 109619

by: Dan10/08/2013

This works very well. I have a Jeep with over-sized tires and use a 14" extension to fit my bike rack or cargo tray. Using two of these for the tray or just one for the bike rack effectively eliminates the sway. With the bike rack it is a very small amount of up and down movement, but I could only notice that when moving it by hand. When driving I couldn't tell it was moving at all. Make sure you close the end caps though. First use I forgot to do that and needed compressed air to clean out the lock enough to get the key back in. 103036

I tow a 30ft Wellcraft Cabin Cruiser Behind my 41ft MtrHome. Needless to say, side to side & up & down motions made the ride very uncomfortable & noisy. Pics do not fully show the true way this operates, however, when it arrives & you disassemble it, the unit becomes very logical. This, controlling the side by side motion, and the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch RM-061, controlling the up & down motion of the hitch you get the feeling of better handling of a long, heavy load. Very Comforting! 158722

I'm using this to lock my bike rack to my reese hitch. This is a great locking device, very secure. I use a ratchet & socket to tighten it so there is NO Rattle or sway of the bike rack. The metal is corrosion free so far. I take it off for the winter when the salt is starting to hit the roads. It comes with 2 keys and has a nice rubber keyhole cover. I just purchased another one for my sister. I think it's worth every penny. eTrailer is very easy to order from and has great communication and customer service. 200647

Before using the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock my receiver would move both sideways and up and down and sounded like the car was coming apart. I have a 2" hitch and after installing this new product I have used it four times as of this writing. My trailer is a utility 5x8 and I have hauled different items and weight and I have not heard a sound out of it. Even though it totally locks it from side to side play, I thought maybe there would be some up and down motion but for me, none at all. Very, very pleased!!!!! 110306

by: Ian S06/20/2015

the very first time I installed this product it took 2 minutes to install and 4 hours with a hand saw to remove. It cross-threaded almost immediately, and because of the nut being internal to the hitch, you can't easily cut it off. I already broke two ratchets on this thing. There is not enough clearance for a sawzall so I have been using a small keyhole saw for the past 4 hours and still not done. Do yourself a favor and just use a half inch hex bolt and nylon locknut instead of this piece of crap. 205896

The anti-rattle pin was a great add-on to my Pro Series Cargo Carrier (63153). Without it, the carrier tongue fitted loosely in the receiver and the carrier wobbled. I'm certain that the noise and movement would have bothered me on the road. However, the anti-rattle pin tightened the tongue to the receiver so well that they became like one piece. No noise and rock solid stability. Easy installation, and the locking end cap adds some security, too. I highly recommend this product. 95572

by: Benny T06/30/2015

Worked great with one exception. Be very careful when tightening the 5/8's bolt and don't over tighten, I did and stripped the threads in the metal block. Ended up cross threading and had great difficulty removing the bolt. Thus ruining the assembly. However; it works so great I reordered another one. Highly recommend this product with the caveat to "tighten only enough to remove rattle and no more".. Would help if metal block were made of industrial steel instead of pot metal?? 208452

by: SamP08/07/2011

I purchased this Anti-Rattle device to tighten up a Cargo Carrier which was fitting in the hitch very loosely. When tightened down very tight (tighter than you can get with the included wrench), it stops side to side movement well, much better than nothing. Twisting movement some, and not so much up and down.... but still much better than nothing. If you need to limit all movement for a loose fitting accessory, you need to get one of the more robust products, or augment this one. 21262

Do not waste your money. In theory it is a great idea. I installed the pin per the directions and tightened the bolt with a 6" wrench. At the end of the weekend, I tried to remove the bolt with the same 6" wrench. The bolt would not turn. I ended up using my 1/2" drive socket and the bolt snapped off...leaving the pin sheared off inside of the ball mount. Low quality and it cost an additional $22.00 for a metal cutting blade for my oscillating saw. This was a $50.00 lesson. 184656

I only used this product once, so cannot comment on long term quality and endurance, but this one time it worked flawlessly. The anti-sway system secured a heavy bike rack with 4 bikes, and was solid. very little movement, even on rough roads. Having the lock is a nice added bonus. Following advice from previous reviews I never used the supplied wrench. Tightening with a regular wrench was very easy and fast. Overall I am very happy with this product. 142760

I have installed the anti-rattle device and it installs as the directions say to install. I have not yet had to use it yet but my daughter is going back to college in August and it will be fully tested at that time. As it is today I am unable to create any rattle by yanking on the hitch. It is an ingenious design that I am excited to test. It is heavy duty and appears to be very durable. I will provide an update once I have fully used it. 143026

One side is on; but other lock piece won't connect; not enough thread to attatch.. so basically it's on tight but can't put the lock piece on; needs longer pin; had to put my regular pin on; the tool it came with to tighten; bend as I turned it; very upset with piece;;; tried it on another hitch and another vehicle; same thing; not enough thread to connect other piece... 132345


I have same issue on a suburban, any idea how to fix?

comment by: jack k - 06/05/2014


We have noticed this issue with several of the vehicle manufacturers, specifically GM, Nissan, and Toyota. They have increased the thickness of the receiver hitch wall and it has been causing the exact issue that you are describing with some hitch accessories. Another option for you might be the # SR25219
Stainless Steel Locking, Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin for 2" Trailer Hitches
. This lock has an inside width of the lock at 3-1/2 inches vs. the Lets Go Aero at 2-5/8 inches.

This is by far the nicest hitch pin ever! It tightens up the insert an prevents rattle while driving. It is also nice to have the peace of mind that your bicycle rack (or whatever trailer attachment you have) has a little more security while you are out biking the trails. Be sure you have the springed nut in the correct direction desired before installing in the hitch insert as it is difficult to fish out and turn around. 198147

I really appreciated the communication I received from etrailer about this product. Delivery was quicker than expected and the quaility of the product appears to be very good. I installed the anti-rattle hitch receiver on my truck and it took out all the slop both vertical and horizontal that I had between the reciever and and ball mount bar. I haven't pulled my trailer yet, but will follow up with comments once I do. 109609

I thought this would be a great addtion to my set up, big mistake. The quality of the square nut and shank was inferior. I put in the pin and tightened it to the designated 40 ft-lbs only later to find that I could not remove the pin. The threads on the nut and the shank stripped out and made the pin useless. I didn't even use the pin to tow anything. Don't buy it, look for something that is better quality. 167221

This part did stop the hitch from rattling. Unfortunately it somehow cross threaded on removal. I had to use an angle grinder to cut the ends off of the pin so that I could remove the hitch from the receiver. 179183

I only used it one day but so far I love it! Ordering was EZ. Shipped promptly and etrailer customer service very helpful and organized. I received a Pro Series 24x60 Cargo Carrier and anti-rattle lock and both worked great. Assembly was not hard and I am moving stuff all over with it and saving money by picking up things instead of paying for delivery and bringing lots of dirty junk to the dump. 194409

Produce works as described, however it prevents only back and forth movement of the ball mount. It does not prevent up and down movement of the ball mount. Also, two hands are required to lock and unlock device - inconvenient. I used hitch lock, turned on its side, to prevent up and down movement of the ball mount. Used together they prevent all move of the ball platform. Success. 111651

etailer prompt delivery as usual, thanks trailer!! item arrived in perfect condition. Installation was pretty straight forward, however, the wrench that came with the lock is completely junk. I used a socket to tighten down the lock. Did not notice any wear on the threads, yet, but will be keeping a close eye on it and checking on the bolt to ensure that it's about a half turn past snug. 204601

When I started to put it on my hitch and tried to tighten it down....I could tell the threads on the bolt were stripped. I immediately tried to take it off and couldn't. I had to totally ruin the the threads on the bolt to get it off and I hadn't even turned the nut more than one revolution. I haven't contacted etrailer yet, but I'm sure they will not allow me to exchange it. 175554

Excellent quality. Works exactly as advertised. I purchased this product to use with a 20"x48" steel cargo carrier. Seemed a little "pricey" when looking at other locking receiver pins, but it proved to be worth every penny. Completely eliminated all lateral and vertical movement of the stinger within the receiver. I'll probably buy another to use on other applications. 211141

  • Anti-Rattle Device Suggestion while using a Towing Bike Rack and Pop Up Camper
  • For use while towing with your pop up camper trailer and hitch mounted towing bike rack, the best option would be to use the Anti-Rattle Device for a 2 inch hitch # 63232. This device will eliminate any additional rattling by pulling the ball mount portion of the hitch to one side. It also provides a secure locking mechanism for your hitch. Please keep in mind that this locking device can only be used on hollow hitch devices, it is also advised to remove this locking mechanism when...

Although the Hidden Hitch # 87649 Class III trailer hitch you mentioned would work great, I'd recommend the Curt Class III, part # C13146 because the crossbar of this hitch would be completely concealed behind the rear bumper, rather than a large portion of it being exposed as would be the case with the # 87649. Both hitches have the same capacity, and both are of similar quality. Most folks would rather have the hitch as...

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Towing 4000lb Travel Trailer
  • We have exactly what you're looking for, the # 63232. The anti-rattle lock is compatible with hollow-shank ball mounts or hitch accessories. It can be used for towing. The receiver tube of your hitch can't be more than 2-5/8 inches. If it is, use # SHP2040-XL. The manufacturer recommends using an anti-seize compound like # LT37616 on the threads of the lock before use.

This carrier has a weight capacity of 500 lbs and you will want to check your vehicle owners guide to ensure your hitch can handle that amount of weight.

Along with this adapter you will also need an Anti Rattle device for the 2 inch receiver to help keep the bike rack from bouncing.

  • Best Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Subaru Forester

Also a 2 inch hitch will carry a cargo carrier much smoother due to it's higher capacity. There would be much less bouncing like you described. I would recommend the Draw Tite hitch part # 75876.

If this is the case, unfortunately the # 63232 will not work for you, because the threaded block would not fit into the shank of your bike rack. You could however use a standard locking hitch pin like part # 40107 along with an an anti-rattle system like the # RM-061. I personally use the # RM-061 when I tow my PWCs, and they work great. I...
