The package was busted open inside the box the key to the lock was missing plus the nuts was missing to there was no sign of damage to the outer side of the box so nothing could have came out it was packed that was with missing parts


Easy to install, good quality material was really impressed with the thickness of lock and security. Using to secure my spare tire on my pontoon boat trailer. Perfect for what I wanted to do.


This hold down clamp works excellent!! I sprung mine inward slightly to fit my room holes better and cut my bolt ends down for a trim look. I also placed a stainless steel lock washer under each but to prevent the nuts from loosening any due to vibration like I read in one review can happen. I've got nothing sticking up through my lock and will be using a vinyl cap on the locks' keyhole head as well the end of the bolt on the opposite length. Holds very tightly with moderate tightening. DO NOT over torque or you'll be bending your rim and or trailer tongue channel. Love this item for is efficiency, strength, function and look! My trailer channel is 2" wide by 3" tall. Just place your bolt on a diagonal)

It had been over a year and the hold down clamp holds like day one and doesnt rust. Totally satisfied.
Very i - 07/15/2018


I was looking for spare tire carrier that could be mounted on the trailer main frame. I also like the wheel nut lock.


I ordered two mounted tires and wheels and two Fulton spare tire carriers. The tires were shipped in two different boxes. The spare tire carriers were put one each in the box containing the tire/wheels. When I opened the boxes, both of the spare tire carrier packages had come open in transit and the contents were scattered inside the tire boxes. One was fine and all parts were there and in the second, the keys for the spare tire carrier lock were missing. I called etrailer and told the representative, Ericka, what occurred. They were super helpful, professional and friendly. etrailer is sending me a replacement. Fantastic customer service! I highly recommend this company!


The tire mount and lock and several other items that I ordered online were delivered to my house very quickly (two days). The tire mount was easy to install, and it holds the spare securely to the trailer tongue. I installed the tire mount on a CE Smith 48810 trailer ("trailer in a box"). The tire mount will give me a little piece of mind in that I can take a spare tire with me. The lock makes removing the tire and wheel very difficult without the key. Very pleased. Highly recommend. It should last for years. PS -- I wish the u-bolt wasn't so long (too many threads). I may remedy that some time in the future.


Its a generic economy tire holder. it w orks.


doesn't fit 5 on 5 rim although you can force it in half way.

For your application 5 on 5 you will need to bend the unit as stated in the product description.

The product is ok. But, it came without any directions - no drawings - nothing. This is POOR service for a piece of crap probably made in China.


Five inches wide would have worked better for me


Was packaged for shipping poorly. Arrived in oversized box with other items including a heavy trailer jack. Nothing inside box to stop items from bouncing into each other. Package for this item was torn open and parts loose in box. No instructions to figure out locking mechanism. Definitely not worth the money.


Worked well for my application (spare tire mounted underneath an Opus On-Road camper). I didn't bother using the lock, as it's enough of a pain to install/remove the tire from the location underneath the trailer (not the fault of the product), so if someone really wants the tire that badly they can go for it! And that way, I don't have to worry about not being able to find the key when I really need the spare. Note that you'll likely need a deep socket to install this depending on the thickness of the bar you are connecting to.


Like always, I am very happy to work with etrailer for my hauling needs. The product is as expect, service was great and quick. I also like the product videos which help a lot to make the products arrive as expected to reduce mail order surprises. The spare tire carrier is as expected and is decent quality. I would have given it a five star, but one of the nuts does not thread well. While time may work it in and it may be good to have some resistance in rotation to prevent loosening, it reduces the rating to four stars.

Both products are working great!

Fitment and quality good. Allows multiple options for mount locations. Very happy


Easy to install. Some reviews I read spoke about the length of the threads which are too long. But what is too long for some tires and trailer configurations may be too short for others. Keep in mind the threads will have to be cut for your particular installation. It is difficult to tighten the lug nut with a 13/16 wrench and using a lug wrench will be easier but the length of the threads requires a little work with a hack saw.
No regrets, I would recommend this to anyone asking.


The Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier W/wheel Nut Lock is a durable, secure and economical way to mount and lock down your trailer spare tire/wheel. Currently using this product to mount and lock down a ST205/75R 15 5 on 5 Tire/wheel. Currently mounted the spare tire/wheel using this product on the front inside of my 8' x 12' flat bed/utility trailer. Plan to eventually mount the tire/wheel (using this product) on the outside of my trailer but given that my trailer does not have a full box rail but a lip rail, I need to modify my trailer a bit so not to damage the tire (note: trailer is the issue not this product). Lastly, this product works great and was easy to install.


Fit perfectly through spare tire and on to frame of the kayak trailer. A little piece of mind when trailer is left unattended while we kayak.


Installed this spare tire carrier on my boat trailer hitch with no problems. Product is well made, and attachment rod is long enough to handle large tires and rims. Product can also be used to mount a tire vertically if necessary. Very simple to install lock on one threaded side. Reasonably priced.


I used this product on my TSI trailer for a 2008 Tuscany 24 foot pontoon. The part of the trailer I mounted it was 3 inches wide and 6 inches tall. Laid the spare tire flat and bracket fits like a glove. Don't need to put spare in back seat of my truck anymore. If you don't mind not using the cap for the lock, then you do not need to do anything except install it which takes about 5 minutes. If you want to put the rubber cap on the locking mechanism, just trim it with a dremel tool or hacksaw. Took me 10 minutes to trim. Love the product.


just what I ordered, my 3 times experience with e-trailer has been
very good, to bad our local's aren't-!! picture lay out's on web are
also very good.

your welcome, no major projects right now but that can always change, will again view your nice siteWilliam Sullivan

Easy clean install. I used to hacksaw to shorten the bolts for a perfect fit.


This was just what I was looking for. I ordered it two and a half days ago I was on my front porch today same thing with the wheels and tires that I bought from the trailer I ordered them and two and a half days they were on my porch. Can't get any better service I'll come back out once I get the trash. thank you


I've used the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier on my boat trailer for about a year. It works exactly as expected. Ordering online was a cinch, the delivery was prompt and as ordered, and the price was right. This was my second transaction with etrailer and my second excellent experience. What's not to like?


Product itself seems well made. Customer service pushing shipping off over a week is not ok. O we have two warehouses and only go to the other one sometimes. Have spent over 5k in two yrs, I'll be taking my money somewhere else.


We are so happy with our purchasing experience and purchase at etrailer. They had exactly what we wanted at a very reasonable price. The product arrived when they said it would and the quality is unbeatable. Fits perfect on our trailer so our spare is ready when we need it.
Thank you!

Perfect. Excellent quality, extremely pleased.
