Works as advertised. Like the ease of the wedsite, especially etrailer offering the ability for keyed alike on the etrailer products. I did treat the locks with the lithium grease as recommended. I’ll know more in about three months on how they perform. etrailer customer service gets a 5 Star, the customer service was great, along with pushing the order out the door. Thank you All.


This is the second such lock I purchased from etrailer. This particular lock does extremely well to keep the honest person honest. Should I lose or require another lock, I will not hesitate to purchase from this company again.


Works great


The only time this is not installed is when I'm actually hooking up/disconnecting the trailer. It has not shown any sign of rust and the key lock works easily. Love the fact that most products have videos. Very helpful in choosing the correct product.


Works perfectly, like the narrow span which snugs up tightly on the coupler for my drift boat trailer making it more secure against cutters.


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.


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?


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.


Works well. I like the positive lock fe ature.


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.


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


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.


It's just as advertised. A strong shaft and all 4 matched keys to this and the receiver lock work perfect. More substantial than I thought it would be.


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.


Great trailer lock. Purchased same lock years ago, had no problems until I lost the keys.


Product is great. Have several of these locks for all of my trailers. Chelsea made sure I got what I needed when other CS agents failed on my order. So glad I could get what I needed.


Delivered right on time, and installation was very easy with the help of the video!!


Always gives me great service!


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,).


Works as advertised. Received promptly with keys matched to receiver lock.


This worked great. Fit was good seems sturdy.
i dont anticipate someone stealing my trailer I will make it as hard as possible.
Thanks .


I really like this coupler lock for it's convenience. It has always worked great in all weather conditions.


Easy to use, "universal fit", and the "keyed alike" option make this a no-brainer for me.


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.


Amazing product, no issues.

  • Can etrailer Hitch Locks e9884 and e98881 be Keyed Alike
    Yes, if you selected keyed alike from the drop down menu on both the lock part # e98881 and # e98884 they would both have the same key/lock like you are wanting.

  • Keyed Alike Trailer Hitch Locks For Class V Receiver
    If you order Trailer Coupler Lock - Deadbolt Style 1/2" Span # e98884 and Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # e98881 and select 'keyed alike" before adding them to your cart, since they are with the same manufacturer they will be keyed the same as each other. These are the closest products that I have to your description. Both locks work with class V receivers.

  • Coupler Lock for the Yakima Lock n Roll Trailers
    For the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailers like part # Y08107 I really like the etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock part # e98884. It is a very easy to use and reliable in operation. I like this design for it's design the most it is very compact and will tighten down close to the coupler so it won't rattle around like some others will.

  • How to Lock a Demco Hijacker to Factory Puck System
    I see what you are talking about, without the above bed rails you wouldn't have a point to attach the lock. Looking at the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550024, I think the best way to lock the hitch would be to replace the clevis pin that secures the handle locking the puck in place with a lock. This would prevent the handle from being turned which would keep the pucks locked in place. A lock like the etrailer Trailer Coupler Latch Lock # e98884 could pass through the...

  • Is etrailer e99039-9 Hitch and Coupler Lockset Available for a Class V 2-1/2 Inch Hitch
    Unfortunately, we don't offer a kit like the # e99039-9 for a 2-1/2 inch class V receiver. This being said, you can get the same coupler lock, part # e98884, coupler lock # e98881 for a 2-1/2 inch hitch and the # e98900 storage bag separately. For the locks, just choose the 'keyed alike option' from the drop down menu.. We don't offer the alignment collar in a class V compatible version yet.

  • 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, # e98884, 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 30 Steel Cable Lock by Master Lock, # 8218DPS. Just secure this lock from the bike to the safety chain loops on the hitch...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Coupler Lock Compatible with Weight Capacity of BlueOx SwayPro
    I have a locking hitch pin solution for you, but I confirmed that the locking hitch pin in the Receiver and Coupler Lock Set # e99039 is rated for use with Class III and Class IV trailer hitches. Since most Class IV trailer hitches have a capacity of 10,000 pounds, this is the capacity they list for the receiver lock # e98880 in the Lock Set # e99039. I recommend using the Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, Padlock Style for Class III, Class IV, and Class V Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Hitch Lock and Bike Rack for Swagman XC4, part # S64665 - Keyed Alike?
    Yes, you can get our Coupler Lock, part # e98884 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 # e98891. 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 ratchets from moving. I am sorry, the Swagman XC4, part # S64665, has a threaded shank, and the lock that is designed specifically...

  • Availability of Keyed Alike Trailer Hitch and Trailer Coupler Lock
    For the lock for the 2-1/2 inch receiver, I'd recommend our # e98881.

  • 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, you...

  • 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 # e98884. (This latch lock is one of the two locks included in part # e99039, 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...
