Video Transcript for DeadBolt Trailer Coupler Locks - Latch Lock - 7690 Review

Today we're going to review part number 7690. This is the deadbolt trailer coupler lock. This part will come with the lock and the two keys. Now this coupler lock is designed to be used on trigger-style trailer couplers with the 1/4" hole. We have an example of one of those couplers here just to give you an idea of what we're talking about. This trailer coupler as you can see right here, has the hole when you open it and when you close it, the hole will line up so your lock will go right through there.

I'm going to show you how that would work here in a minute.Now this coupler lock will secure that trailer to the ball mount. It keeps anybody from stealing your trailer. Now a few dimensions on this coupler lock, the overall length of it is going to be right around 4 inches. The pin diameter right in the middle here is a quarter of an inch and then the inside width, inside pin length right in there is going to be 1/2". This is a deadbolt style receiver lock.

It has a flush-locking design. It has the covered key slot with the rubber cover here that you can see. This will help prevent any dirt and water from getting into the mechanism, to prevent any corrosion.Now you can also get multiple locks of these if you want and you can get them keyed alike. Basically if you go to our product page, there will be a drop-down box and then that drop-down box, it will say "keyed alike" and you can just put in how many, the quantity number of them that you would need that would be keyed alike. Now I do want to show you how it opens.

Basically if you just remove the cap, put your key in there and it basically unscrews or you can turn the key to unscrew it. And once you get it fully unscrewed it will come right off. And then here's the example of that trailer coupler again.So again what you would do is put that right through that hole just like that. Go ahead and put the lock on and you can turn the key or actually what you can also do is this end, just sort of spin it tight. Once again, all the way tight.

Just remove the key, put the cover on and you can see what it ends up doing is it locks that latch. Even though the trigger latch right down here can be unlocked, you can see that it won't allow the latch to open up and when you open that latch up, this removes this lever down here around the hitch ball.So when you prevent that latch from opening it prevents that lever from being removed around the hitch ball. And then to remove it, just open up the cover, put your key in. Go ahead and turn it and then just twist it and once you get it off the nut, it'll come right off. As simple as that. But that should do it for the review on part number 7690. The deadbolt trailer coupler lock. .

The hitchlock and coupler lock did not arrive “keyed alike” as requested. I sent an email asking for assistance and left a message for my Customer Service rep last week an have not received a reply from either one. Help? 641835

Puchased two of these to secure bikes on the Swagman XTC 2 rack. Fits perfectly in the little hole on each bike arm and they are a nice tight fit. Able to get them keyed alike which is nice. I don't really like that I have to turn the key about 10 times to get the two pieces apart, and hope this doesn't cause wear issues down the road. 58688

In error, I lost the first two and this is my third. The ability to key alike is very nice. When I lose or misplace an item, I can order the new one keyed the same as my other locks. The locks themselves are also great. With some lubrication once in awhile, the work great in all weather conditions (rain, snow, ice, salt,). 480551

These locks--in @ least three (3) sizes--are GREAT locks for trailers as well as for hitches. The 'keyed alike' feature is most valuable too. I am more than just extremely satisfied. 327851

The product looked to be fine, EXCEPT the lock would not open. After reading about and wrestling with for 30 minutes I returned it. This is not a good start for my first order. 34473

Great product! I have been very satisfied with the trailer lock set and the super service. Thanks again for a great product, and super service. 391592

5th one so far (have 5 trailers), have been using these and the receiver locks for about 8 years without any issue. Great to have all trailers keyed the same and a product that lasts (even through New England Winters). Just purchased another few for the rest of the family trailers/hitches. Superior service and prompt handling from Etrailer as well. 146811

by:

This lock does work but I am not a huge fan. The thing I do not like too much about this particular lock is that it's a screw off type and it's a little more time consuming than I like. That being said, the quality is decent and the lock serves the purpose. It does exactly what it advertises. 478339

This did not fit my trailer hitch, I have an old style hitch, not a problem with the lock 576742

Ask the Experts about this DeadBolt Trailer Coupler Locks
Do you have a question about this Trailer Coupler Lock?


  • Which Coupler Lock Set is Best for Use with Atwood Trailer Coupler 81911
  • The Atwood Trailer Coupler 81911 that you have on your A-frame trailer can be locked in two ways, by securing the latch and by blocking entry of a hitch ball. The latch mechanism on the top can be locked with an item like the Dead Bolt # 7690. (This latch lock is one of the two locks included in part # 7685, which is our reference for the CT Johnson part RHC32.) But please note that this latch lock has a center span of only 1/2-inch; the coupler latch on your # 81911 requires a latch...

  • Can Deadbolt Hitch Lock # 40107 be Keyed Alike to Coupler Lock
  • Yes, if you select "keyed alike" on the product page for the hitch lock part # 40107 and on the page for the coupler lock part # TCL3-YL you'll get both the coupler and hitch locks keyed alike. If you had a different coupler lock in mind you'd be able to do the same thing to have it keyed the same as the # 40107.

  • What Size Coupler Lock Fits the Pin Hole of Coupler
  • Coupler pin locks like the part # 7690 are 1/4 inch in diameter. I am not totally sure which coupler you mentioned but if you are looking for a pin lock to fit a trigger latch like it sounds like you are the lock would need to be 1/4 inch in diameter.

  • Availability of Keyed-Alike Coupler Locks
  • There are coupler locks that can be keyed-alike, but the Master Lock Trigger Style Coupler Lock # 605DAT that you referenced cannot. Check out the Trailer Coupler Lock # 7690. You can order these keyed-alike if you select that feature before you hit add to cart. I attached a link to all the keyed-alike coupler locks we offer also.

  • Will Swagman 2 Bike Wheel-Mounted Bike Carrier # S64670 Fit a 2006 Honda Civic SI
  • I would recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24763 for your 2006 Honda Civic. This hitch is custom-fit for your vehicle, and requires no drilling to install. The Swagman 2-bike rack, # S64670, will work well with this hitch, but I would recommend that you check the weight of the bikes to make sure they are less than 35lbs each. As long as the bikes are 35lbs or less each, the Swagman rack would be a good choice for your application. To lock the bike rack to the trailer hitch,...

  • Availability of Keyed Alike Coupler Locks
  • The Butterfly Style Trailer Coupler Lock, item # 3808, is not available at this time keyed alike. We have several keyed alike coupler locks that may work for you. Item # RC6 and # RC6SS, have a 7/8 inch span and item # 7690 and RC2ss have a 1/2 inch span for attachment to the trailers coupler.

  • Availability of Keyed Alike Trailer Hitch and Trailer Coupler Lock
  • For the lock for the 2-1/2 inch receiver, I'd recommend the DeadBolt # RH5-XL. For the coupler lock, there are several available choices with different spans. # 7690 - 1/2 inch span # 7691 offers a 2 inch span # 7692 - 2-1/2 inch span # RC6SS - 7/8 inch span # 28012 - 3-3/8 inch span On the product description page for each item, there's a drop down menu where you can choose 'keyed unique' or 'keyed alike'. Choose the 'keyed alike' option on each lock you'd like keyed alike.

  • How To Obtain Matching Trailer Coupler and Hitch Pin Lock with Same Key
  • I do have an option for you but the Reese Tow and Store Lock Kit part # RP7014700 does not have the ability to come keyed alike. Therefore, there would be no way to order multiple with the same key unless they just so happened to all randomly come with the same key (very unlikely). The only option we have for you to obtain a 1/2" hitch pin lock, 5/8" hitch pin lock, trigger latch lock, and coupler lock all with the same key is from DeadBolt. If you were to order all of the below products...

  • Hitch Lock and Bike Rack for Swagman XC4, part # S64665 - Keyed Alike?
  • Yes, you can get Trailer Coupler Lock - Deadbolt Style 1/2-inch Span, part # 7690 keyed alike for the Swagman XC4 bike rack. You can also get them keyed alike with a cable lock, like the 10-foot Cable Lock, part # CAB-10. The hole for the coupler lock is located on the ratchet hook bracket, on the opposite side from the hook. The lock goes through this set of holes and keeps the ratches from moving. I am sorry, the Swagman XC4, part # S64665, has a threaded shank, and the lock that is...

If you only need a coupler lock for the trailer then the most cost effective and universal option we have for you is the Fastway Universal Trailer Coupler Lock part # DT25013KA.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Coupler Lock Compatible with Weight Capacity of BlueOx SwayPro
  • I have a locking hitch pin solution for you. We try to provide as much information as we are able on our product pages. Not all manufacturers provide a load rating for their products, and many do not when it comes to hitch pins. I spoke with my contact at Dead Bolt to find the rating of the hitch pin in the lock set # 7685. He confirmed that the locking hitch pin in the Receiver and Coupler Lock Set # 7685 is rated for use with Class III and Class IV trailer hitches. Since most Class...

  • Is the Deadbolt Style Trailer Coupler Lock Compatible with the Swagman XC Cross Country Bike Rack
  • There was a design change and the Deadbolt Style Trailer Coupler Lock, item # 7690, no longer works with the Swagman XC Cross Country Bike Rack, item # S64650, if the bikes have similar height frames. The coupler lock will install in the locking hole but the top hook cannot be locked, if the installed bikes have similar frame heights. I have contacted Swagman and there are no plans to change this design. The trailer coupler lock will work if the bike frames are at least 2 inches different...

  • Does the Swagman XTC-2 Two Bike Platform Bike Rack Have Locking Frame Hooks
  • The frame hooks on the Swagman XTC-2, # S64670, do not have a locking mechanism, but you will be able to use Trailer Coupler Lock, # 7690, in the available holes on the hook housing. These locks will work unless you have two bikes with the same frame height. If so, you will be able to use a cable lock if you have one. If you need a cable lock, I recommend the Quantum 15 Steel Cable Lock by Master Lock, # 8157DPS. Just secure this lock from the bike to the safety chain loops on the hitch...

These are the closest products that I have to your description. Both locks work with class V receivers.
