Video Transcript for etrailer.com Stainless Steel Trailer Coupler Lock

Colin : Hi, everyone. It's Colin here at Etrailer. Today we're going to take a little bit of time and show you guys this trailer coupler lock from Etrailer. Basically what this is going to do for you is it's going to lock your tab style coupler so that it cannot come unlocked. Whether it's on your ball Mount and you're traveling, it's not going to risk unlocking which runs the risk of it coming up off the ball, and it's also going to be a lock for if you leave your trailer unintended. Whether it's hooked up to your vehicle or not, people won't be able to get the coupler unlocked to get off the trailer or to get it hooked onto their trailers so they can take it.It has a really nice flush mount designed to it.

It is going to have a half-inch span so it's really flush against our coupler right now so that virtually no one can get in there and try to pry it out. It's going to have a nice stainless steel construction as well. That's going to make it very strong and durable, and it's also going to help resist rust and corrosion. Then we're also going to have a dust cap covering our lock cylinder. That's going to help make sure that no dirt, debris or moisture gets in there and ruins the mechanics our cylinder.

It's also going to help with prevent it from eroding away.Once we insert our key, what's really nice is that this is called a pick-proof system. Basically meaning that no one can come up and just pick the lock and take the cylinder out. You're going to have to turn it multiple times to get it completely off of the threads. When you're ready to unlock your trailer to get it off your vehicle or onto your vehicle, we just get that all the way out, pull the pin, and now our coupler can be unlocked.With it out of our coupler, you can see how the half-inch span is perfect for our application. It really just helps make sure to keep our lock secure.

We're going to have an all-weather grip on the other side as well so no matter the conditions outside, I'm going to be able to have a really good grip on my lock to make sure I can get it secured. What's also really cool is that even though we have two keys right here, the double siding is also going to contribute to that theft deterrent. It also can be keyed alike with your other locks. If you have multiple other each are there locks, you could have a couple of lock, a hitch receiver lock, and even a spare tire lock, you're going to be able to get all those keyed alike so You don't have to deal with multiple sets of keys.It has a stainless steel construction that's going to make it very strong and durable, and it's also going to help prevent rust and corrosion. When we lift up the dust cap right here, this is going to help make sure that no dirt or debris gets inside of our lock cylinder.

Also prevents moisture from getting in there, which could cause rust and corrosion. What's really cool about this lock is that it's got a pick-proof system on it. Basically, meaning that no one can just come in and pick the lock. That's just not going to get it done. When we insert our keys, because we're ready to unlock it, we actually have to twist it like this all the way until it's off of all threads.Yeah, we have it out. You can see there's threads on the end of our pin right there. Then on the inside of our lock is going to be where it hooks onto. Now with that, you can get your lock undone to hook up your trailer or unhook it. It also is going to have an all-weather grip on the other side. That's going to make sure I can have a good grip of it to make sure I get my lock secured even in the toughest of weather conditions.What's also really cool is that it's going to have a nice design to it, meaning that it's going to leave little to no space in there, so for anyone to try to get in there and pry it out, just going to make sure it secures your trailer nicely. Now if you have multiple trailers or multiple Etrailer locks, you can get them all keyed alike just by clicking the button on this page. You could have a coupler lock, a hitch receiver lock, or even a spare tire lock, and it's going to be kind of annoying to have three different sets of keys for those locks. If you can get them all keyed alike, then you've got just the two keys on your key ring. That way, wherever you go, you have them with you.When you've got your trailer hooked up to your vehicle or you're ready to lock it up for the night, we'll just stick our pin through, get it onto our threads. Easiest way is to just hold the key and then spin the lock itself on there until it's tight. We'll remove the key, put that dust cap on. Then we're going to be good to go. Well, I hope this information helped you guys out. That's going to do it for our look at the trailer coupler lock from Etrailer.

Good little item, but stout. Keyed end is screwed on/off with key inserted. Remove the key, pop the cap on and it's ready to go. Will be used to secure bikes to Swagman hitch carrier for travel and/or storage. Swagman carrier is secured to an anchored stand for storage 29141

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Coupler Locks

  • Coupler Latch Lock That Cannot be Easily Cut With Bolt Cutters
    Yes, the best way to deter thieves with bolt cutters is to use a very short pin lock in the latch part # e98885. This etrailer.com stainless steel coupler lock only measures a 1/2" span and will not give the thief room to use the bolt cutters to cut it off because it is too tight against the latch. As long as the hole in your latch is a 1/4" and the latch is no wider than 1/2" this will work well for you. They can also be keyed alike so you can use 1 key for your work trailers.

  • Coupler Locks That Can be Keyed Alike
    For coupler locks that can be keyed alike you can use our etrailer.com Stainless Steel Trailer Coupler Lock # e98885. You only need to select the "Keyed Alike" option from the dropdown menu on the product page and the quantity you want. I've added links to video reviews of this lock for you to take a look at.

  • Coupler Pin Lock Recommendation to Protect Against Bolt Cutters
    The best defense against bolt cutters for coupler pin locks is to go with a coupler lock that fits the coupler latch so tight that a bolt cutter couldn't fit. The part # e98885 has span of just 1/2 an inch so it would be hard to get bolt cutters on the pin to cut it.

  • Replacement for Deadbolt Brand Coupler Lock & Can They be Ordered With Specific Keys
    I can answer each of these questions for you, and the etrailer Stainless Steel Trailer Coupler Lock - 1/2" Span # e98885 is the same as the Deadbolt RC2-SS that you previously purchased. Just part of the lock is not available for replacement, unfortunately, so you will need a new lock in its entirety. Also, specific key/lock numbers are not available so the key code you get will be random. If you want everything keyed alike you would have to get all new locks and select the "keyed alike"...

  • How To Order Stainless Steel Hitch Locks and Coupler Locks to be Keyed Alike

  • Corrosion Resistant Coupler and Receiver Locks to Secure Trailer
    We don't have exactly what you're looking for, but I may have a solution for you. The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver & Coupler Lockset # e99039 has both a hitch receiver lock and a coupler lock that are keyed alike. However, they are not stainless steel. They're steel with double-chrome plating to resist rust and corrosion. If stainless steel is more important to you than having them keyed alike, the B&W Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # BWTS51234 will lock your ball mount to your...

  • Recommended Trigger Lock Replacement Keys or Keyed Alike Options
    The Trailer Coupler Lock - Butterfly Style # 3008 do not have specific key blanks available or a keyed alike option. You would need to simply have a similar key blank cut for replacement or spare keys. If you are wanting the trigger latch lock to be keyed alike, we don't have the butterfly style option, but I instead recommend the 7/8 inch span # e98889 or the 1/2 inch span # e98885.
