Video Transcript for Master Lock Spare Tire Lock Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Master Lock Spare Tire Nut Lock. Part number on it is 262DAT. This new Spare Tire Lock is designed to fit over any standard half inch wheel lug. Also works great for the U-bolt style spare tire carriers or even the door mount style. What we'll need to do is first remove our lug nut. That removed, let's set our lug nut aside, we will be reusing it. We'll then open our package here, pull out our lock and also our keys.

We do get two keys. They're a flat style key so they go on any key ring nicely and it's not going to add anything big and obnoxious. There's a plate here on the rear. We'll place our key in the front, turn it to unlock it and remove that plate. That plate will then be placed right onto our wheel stud and then we can thread the lug nut right back down onto it. Of course we will want to tighten down our lug nut.

With that secure, we'll now bring in our lock. You can see the oblong or kind of oval shaped hole that's right there. We want that to go right into it. Then when we turn it, it'll secure it to the vehicle for us- or to the trailer. As you can see, just like that, we're nice, we're secured, we're ready to head down the road, we're going to have no issues with our spare tire coming up missing. That will complete today's look at the Master Lock Spare Tire Nut Lock, part number 262DAT.

Very fast delivery. I purchased the Rack'em wheel lock RA-25 and coupler lock DT25013. Super fast delivery. I picked up my new pop-up yesterday in 110 degree weather with the locks in my trunk. By the time I got to the storage facility, it was sweltering. I was dreading putting on the locks for the first time "thinking it would be so complicated." Wheh, it was not!. The wheel lock snapped on in a jiffy as the did the coupler lock. The Rackem lock definitely works as easily as the video shows. Great service and products. I have not installed the Tire Lock 262DAT yet since I did not bring a wrench. 46623

Didn't work for me at all. The lock was so loose it could be pried off with a screwdriver in a matter of seconds. I tried washers and different lugs and nothing helped. I trashed it and ordered a different lock. 283689

I was a little bit upset at how long it took to receive my order due to the fact that etrailer took to ship because of an item they didn't have in stock! I feel that the items they did have should have shipped immediately! Other then that, I received the items July 24th and was in good condition! I will probably order again in the near future! Prices were wonderful compared to local dealerships which are beyond the prices of etrailer.com! 412404

Works fine but...had to drill the hole for the tire bolt larger. Seems it was not made for 1/2" bolts which most tire studs are. Once drilled was easy and drilling itself was not hard. You can not just add spacers to backside to shorten bolt or the lock just spin free. Note picture. Still a decent product but be prepared to drill that hole larger. 485907

I purchased a Master Lock Spare Tire Carrier Lock - 262DAT and it did not fit on the MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier for 3"x5" Trailer Frames - 4-Lug and 5-Lug Wheels MT70214 because the bolts that attach the tire are too long. Next time at the hardware store it should be an easy fix to get a shorter bolt and swap it out, but just a heads up these will not work together right out of the box. The lock looks good and seems to be a good design, just haven't been able to use it yet. 520802


Comments

The lug nut on the wheel stud of the spare tire carrier cannot be taller than 7/8 inch. If the lug nut is taller than 7/8 I would recommend switching out the lug nut on the wheel stud that you are using the lock on to a shorter lug nut.

Good, sturdy product. Easy to install. I recommend it, but make sure the wheel stud that holds the spare to not too long since the device is only about 1" deep. So, if you need the nut to secure the spare to the trailer AND have the lock installed, you have some options: 1. Cut the stud so that you can torque the nut and apply the lock. 2. leave the nut loose and apply the lock. CON If you want to cut a spare key or two, no one has double sided Master Key blanks. Overall, I recommend it. 161089

Been trying to build one of these for a while now ! This is just what i wanted ! Well made ! Put together in about 15 minutes including mounting spare . Would recomend if you can't mount under trailer or on the side straight up !! Thanks for taking the hassle out of mounting my spare !!!! 372759

Installed no problem but won’t really know how well they work until someone tries to take my spare or I need to fix a flat and can’t find the key 613649

by:

After a year this still works. However, you can easily remove the nut and this cover by twisting it off as you would the nut. To solve this problem use a nylock nut or mess up a small section of threads with a pair of pliers. This prevents the nut from freely spinning. It should have been in the directions. Also, you CAN'T get spare keys made for this lock. 608680

Put both locks on my spare tires and they seem to not fit completely snug and have quit a bit of play once locked. It makes the lock look kinda flimsy, but I hope I’m wrong and serves it’s purpose in keeping my tires secure. 599265

Lock is cheaper than losing a tire to thieves. Keeps honest people honest. 529795



- 262DAT
by:

I just added a spare tire carrier to my trailer after popping a tire and not having a spare. And with the tire mounted it would have been very easy for someone to walk away with it. This lock fit the bill for protection. Easy to install . Nothing is completely theft proof, but this heavy casting along with being inside the dish of the wheel will make it difficult to hammer or even pry it off. 524623



- 262DAT
by:

I use it to lock my spare tire on to the mount on the outside off my trailer 514117



- 262DAT
by:

Ordering the item was easy and delivery was quick. Installation was not difficult at all with the instructions provided. I am a little disappointed in the tightness of the fit of the lock cover over the base on the lug. A little loosey goosey and I'm sure moisture and road grit will build up in it; just need to make sure to clean and lube it routinely. 502856

This is a high quality product. The way it is designed, it could be used to lock many types of items that are secured using a nut. Just make sure the distance from the end of the bolt to the back side of the nut is 1 inch or less and the diameter of the bolt is no greater that 9/16 inch. 488601

Ask the Experts about this Master Lock Spare Tire Locks
Do you have a question about this Spare Tire Lock?


  • Recommended Spare Tire Lock for 2018 Trailstar Trailer with Integrated Spare Tire Mount Location
  • It does appear to have a mount under the trailer for your spare. It looks like you just need to use some bolts and then use a lock like the Spare Tire Carrier Lock # 262DAT to secure it. Many times when there is not a mount, you would use the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier with Wheel Nut Lock # FETCSTL0701 which can work, but is intended to go around a frame so would have extra length on your application.

  • Keyed Alike Wheel Locks for Triple Axle Trailer
  • We do carry wheel locks which can be keyed alike, but they are not locking lug nuts. The Blaylock EZ Trailer Wheel Lock for wheels that are 15" - 20" # BLEZ-302 can be keyed alike by choosing that option in the "Keyed Alike" drop-down menu. It is not for spare tires however, so you would need an extra key for one such as the Master Lock # 262DAT. The upside is that you would not have to use seven of the Blaylock Wheel Locks which is going to save you some time when it comes to locking and...

  • How Can the Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier Be Secured to Deter Theft?
  • The Roadmaster Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier w/ 2" Receiver Opening - 2" Hitches # RM-195225 can be secured with a hitch lock like the B&W Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - Flush - 2-3/4" Span - Stainless Steel # BWTS51234. Then you can use a spare tire lock like the MasterLock # 262DAT or Dead Bolt lock # 4324.

  • Can Spare Tire Carrier Be Mounted On Trailer Wall
  • From the photo you sent, it looks like you have aluminum trailer walls, so the first thing you will want to consider is the strength of the walls. Since the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier, part # DL22120 is designed to be mounted on a trailer tongue or frame, you will want to make sure that the location you choose is strong enough and able to handle the weight. You will want to consider strengthening the wall by reinforcing with a metal plate on the inside of the wall between the...

  • Recommended Spare Tire Lock For Bumper Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # TR-1
  • For the Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier - U-Bolt Mount # TR-1, I recommend the Spare Tire Carrier Lock # 262DAT. This will allow your 2 bolts to fully carry the weight of the tire and wheel while securing it and deterring theft. The bolts that come with this assembly are 1/2 inch, so this is the best lock fit.

  • Can the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120 be Mounted Horizontally
  • As long as you have the necessary clearance on your trailer to fit your spare tire onto this Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier, part # DL22120, and you secure it well you should have no problem installing this # DL22120 in any direction that you wanted. You may also be interested in purchase a Spare Tire Carrier Lock, part # 262DAT.

  • Spare Tire Mount Recommendation on a Trailmaster Tritoon Boat Trailer
  • The best place to mount your spare tire on your Trailmaster Tritoon Boat Trailer is on the frame just opposite of your trailer jack. I recommend using the MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier for 3" x 5" Trailer Frames - 4-Lug and 5-Lug Wheels # MT70214 which will fit trailer frames up to 3 inches wide and 5 inches tall. You may also want to consider a lock like the Spare Tire Carrier Lock # 262DAT to deter theft.

  • Spare Tire and Lock Recommendations Between Fulton and Dutton-Lainson
  • Lock # 262DAT will fit both spare tire carriers # FSTC1000301 and # DL22120. It is designed to fit 1/2 inch wheel studs. The other lock you mentioned, # FSTL0603, is for 1/2 inch wheel studs. For a spare tire carrier I prefer the Dutton-Lainson carrier # DL22120 because it can fit taller frames (up to 3x5 inch) should you ever need it to and Dutton-Lainson does make a quality product.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Mount for 6-Lug Wheels
  • The Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier - Lockable # FETCLB0201 is not compatible with 6 lug wheels. It is only compatible with 4 or 5 lug wheels. For your 6 lug wheels, I recommend the Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier - U-Bolt Mount # TR-1 or the Ultra-Fab Folding Spare Tire Carrier for Trailers and RVs - Bumper Mount # UF15-954730. Either of these will work with 6 lug wheels. With either of these, you can use the Master Lock Spare Tire Carrier Lock # 262DAT to secure your investment.

  • Does the Wheel Need to Be Removed While Not in Use on the Dutton-Lainson Spare Tire Carrier
  • I checked with my contact at Dutton-Lainson and unfortunatly neither they nor we have a photo of the Trailer Spare Tire Carrier and Dolly Bracket by Dutton-Lainson part # DL22144 installed and in use on a trailer at this time. With that being said the carrier/tire does not need to be removed while not in use. The tire can simply be left on the carrier until the time in which it is needed arises. The above carrier/dolly works with most 8"-12" wheels that have either a 4 or 5 bolt pattern....

  • Which Trailer Spare Tire Locks # 4324 Can Be Keyed Alike
  • This particular product, Master Lock # 262DAT, is manufactured with unique keys. In order to have multiple locks all keyed the same you will need a lock such as the Dead Bolt # 4324. This all steel dead bolt can be ordered in multiples with the same key for a small up-charge per lock. Simply select the Keyed Alike option before adding the locks to your shopping cart.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier For 5 On 4-3/4 Inch Bolt Pattern
  • For your PJ 14 foot trailer with the spare tire 5 on 4-3/4 inch bolt pattern, I recommend the Ultra-Fab Folding Spare Tire Carrier for Trailers and RVs - Bumper Mount # UF15-954730 which is a confirmed fit for your bolt pattern and will fit 4 inch wide box bumpers or frames. You may also want to consider a spare tire lock like # 262DAT.

  • Spare Tire Mount for [email protected] Trailer with a 4 x 1 1/2 to 2 Inch Frame
  • The Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier - Fits 4- and 5-Lug Wheels # FSTC1000301 is designed for trailer tongues or frames 3 inches wide and up to 4 inches tall. You are correct that you would need to get different hardware from a local hardware store with threads for a thinner tongue to make this work on your trailer. You would have a similar issue with the MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier # MT70214. You may also be interested in the Master Lock Spare Tire Carrier Lock # 262DAT to deter theft.

  • Fit of Master Lock Spare Tire Lock # 262DAT on 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Spare Tire
  • According to my research, the wheel studs on your Wrangler Unlimited are 1/2 inch diameter, which means that the Master Lock Spare Tire Lock # 262DAT should work just fine for you. The DeadBolt # 4324 would also work if your spare tire has at least 3/4 inches of clearance behind it, and you have an available lug opening that passes through the carrier on the vehicle.

  • Spare Tire Lock for 2013 Jeep Wrangler
  • If your spare tire has at least 3/4 inches of clearance behind it, and you have an available lug opening that passes through the carrier on the vehicle, the Deadbolt # 4324 would work very well for you. The Master Lock spare tire lock, part # 262DAT would also be an option. The lock prevents access to the head of the nut or bolt that retains the spare tire to the carrier attached to the rear of the vehicle.

  • Bumper Mount Tire Carrier Needed for a 14" Tire
  • The Stromberg Carlson Spare Tire Carrier # TR-1 isn't compatible with a 14" tire but we do have the Ultra-Fab Folding Spare Tire Carrier # UF15-954730 is compatible with a 14" tire. It is also compatible with most 5, 6, and 8-lug bolt patterns besides a 5 on 5" bolt pattern. I also recommend installing the Spare Tire Carrier Lock # 262DAT to deter theft of your tire. Review videos have been linked for you to check out as well.

  • Could Spare Tire Carrier Lock # 262DAT Fit Spare Tire Carrier on Jayco Travel Trailer
  • As long as you have a spare tire carrier that has 1/2 inch diameter threads this will work well for you. The Spare Tire Carrier Lock # 262DAT is designed to fit the most common stud diameter found on spare carriers, which happens to be 1/2 inch diameter. This is what your spare carrier should have and I'd be honestly surprised if it did not, so it should work really well.

  • Spare Tire Carrier for a 14" Wheel with a 5 Lug Pattern
  • The Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier # TR-1 that you referenced is only compatible with 15" - 16" tires but we do have the Ultra-Fab Folding Spare Tire Carrier # UF15-954730 is compatible with a 14" spare tire if it is for a trailer and weighs under 60 lbs. This mounts to a 4" wide bumper, just like the carrier you referenced, and works with 5 lug patterns aside from 5 on 5" bolt patterns. You can actually add the Carrier Lock # 262DAT to deter theft of your spare tire.
