Couple latch lock works perfectly. I saw that some were complaining about the rubber cap getting in the way while unscrewing or screwing it on to lock. If you just open the cap and let it spin freely, it works just fine. I would recommend this product for wider tongue latches. I will buy another one if this ever wears out!!

by:

Product works as decribed. Well made. Only thing I dont like is how the lock parts must be threaded together with the key in the lock. I'm concerned the rubber dust cover will be torn off by my keys getting in the way.

The Latch Lock is thin enough to fit through the latch's eye on my boat trailer. It is also long enough to span the entire latch.

I ordered the RC6 lock which has a 7/8" span to fit my 2-5/16" coupler on my trailer. When the lock came in, it was too short. Returned the lock and got item #7691 and it fit just right. Had great customer service with returning and ordering.

Coupler latch lock works great. Perfect size and length for my older style 2" coupler.

Works as described. Just disappointed that it is to long for my application. This one was the shortest one that I could find. Liked that it's keyed the same as my spare tire lock.

I ordered a hitch coupler pin and a class V 5/8" hitch mount pin for a 2 1/2" receiver. I received both items and only 2 keys which only worked for the hitch coupler pin. There were no keys for the hitch mount coupler.I called etrailer.com and explained the situation. Noah was the customer service rep. that help me and he is going to send me a new hitch mount pin with keys and a return merchandise shipping label

These receiver locks work well, but they don't operate the way you expect they would. The key doesn't really unlock the system, but allows you to screw one part, the shaft, into the receiver with the key...without the key the unit just turns.I am not sure how much stronger this is and it is a bit of a PIA to put on and take off, but it's more secure than not using a lock.In the end, all these security bits and pieces work mostly to shunt would be opportunists away. A pro who wants to take your trailer, will be doing it no matter what you put on there.

Replaces simple bail hasp that came with new trailer. Peace of mind while towing and while parked.

I had lost the coupler pin lock from my Curt set I purchased from etrailer about a year ago. I made the mistake of leaving it on the tongue. Nick from etrailer helped me find a suitable replacement. Great customer service and good pricing makes this company a wonderful place to shop!

I can't say enough good things about etrailer. I have bought many parts for truck and Seadoo trailer and travel trailer. I have never needed to send anything back. If in doubt, I call and talk to someone who will direct me in the right direction. This coupler lock was the smallest item I've ever purchased from them, but I needed it NOW, lol. I recommend etrailer to everyone. Oh, I also like the lock. This is the same one someone...uh hmmm..lost. :)

Ordered four of these coupler locks keyed alike to secure loading ramps to an Aluma trailer. Can't say enough good things about Olivia who handled my order 108378866. She provided service I haven't experienced in years. Only reason for only 4 four stars, is one of the four locks arrived defective. After calling etrailer, they shipped a replacement right away.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Coupler Locks

  • Availability of Coupler Lock With a 5/16 inch Pin Diameter
    A pin with a 1/4 inch diameter, like part # e98886, is standard for coupler locks. Unfortunately there are none that are 1/16 of an inch larger in diameter. If instead you meant that you needed one with a span of 5/8 of an inch then you will want to go with the Master Lock Adjustable Trailer Coupler Lock # 2847DAT which has a 5/8 inch adjustment setting. If you meant that the pin diameter needed to be 5/8 inches then you are looking for part # e98880.

  • Does etrailer.com Hitch Lock e98886 Really Prevent Theft of Trailer
    The Trailer Coupler Lock # e98886 prevents the latch of the coupler from opening. So if you installed this lock on the latch of your trailer like in the picture attached to this page someone could lower the coupler onto their ball and the ball would support the weight of the trailer, but the coupler would not be able to secure to the ball. So basically if the thief were to hit a big enough bump to unload the tongue weight of the trailer it would fall right off. Or if they drove up a...

  • Coupler Lock Recommendations for Atwood Trailer Coupler # 80051
    For trailer coupler 80051 you could use a latch lock such as # e98886 or # 2847DAT. These will install at the latch and prevent it from being able to pull up. Another popular lock for this coupler is # 379DAT. This lock has a part that fits inside the coupler where the ball normally would be. This prevents someone from coupling up to the trailer. I have linked videos for all three of the locks above.

  • Trailer Coupler Latch Lock with 1/4 Inch Diameter and 2-1/2 Inch Span
    Trailer coupler lock # e98887 has a 1/4 inch diameter and 2-1/2 inch span. It is designed to be flush and just wide enough for a 2-1/2 inch span. It is the same as # e98886 but longer. We also have # e98888 with a 1/4 inch diameter and 3-3/8 inch span if you want something that is even longer but it would not be flush with the sides of the latch on the coupler.

  • Coupler Lock for Atwood 8500 Pound A-Frame Coupler 80101
    For Atwood coupler 80101 a latch lock such as # e98886 will not work. You would need to use a coupler lock such as # DT25013KA. Or if you have coupler 80101 then what you could do is use a longer latch lock, # e98888, and put it vertically through the holes behind the latch.

  • Can Trailer Coupler Lock # e98886 Be Left Installed on Trailer Coupler
    Yes, you could leave the Trailer Coupler Lock # e98886 installed on a trailer coupler while the vehicle is towing. This will keep the coupler locked to the truck's hitch ball while towing and then if you were to park the truck as well. This is a very common use for these types of locks as well.

  • Best Option For Keyed Alike Hitch and Coupler Lock for 2014 Toyota Tundra w/ OEM Trailer Hitch
    We do have an lock for you but the # e98882 isn't compatible with the factory receiver used on the 2014 Tundra and Tacoma. You can confirm this by measuring the width of the receiver tube at the hitch pin hole. If the tube is thicker than 2-5/8 inches, the # e98882 won't work.

If you are looking for a locking device that will work while coupled you can just use a standard pin lock like the etrailer Pin Lock part # e98886.
