Just what we were looking for. 686429



- e98887
by:

nice locks especially when you can buy 6 and have them all keyed the same. Thank You 686321



- e98887
by:

Was looking for multiple trailer locks that fit Bulldog style hitches - but wanted them keyed the same. This is the only place I found where that is available. The locks arrived and fit perfectly - 2 1/2" span. I recommend, especially if you want multiple locks with the same key pattern. 713721



- e98887
by:

I ordered the wrong length. Excellent service on the exchange. This one fit my Champion Ez-loader trailer perfect and works fine so far. 686451



- e98887
by:

Right size and does the job. e trailer excellent as usual. 686442



- e98887
by:

I ordered the wrong size the first time and when I returned it and reordered the then one came quickly and it fit perfectly. 686398



- e98887
by:

Seems to be a little flimsy..key needs to be rotated about 10 times to tighten since its like a long bolt with threads. Overall better then nothing at all. 686394



- e98887
by:

Good purchase, still doing the job! 686383



- e98887
by:

After ordering the incorrect length receiver lock - which I praised highly in my previous review - Christina of Customer Service was extremely helpful getting me the shorter version that I needed, as well as expediting the return of my 1st order. I can't say enough about the professional service and attention to detail that I received. etrailer.com has without a doubt become my "Go-To" for future trailering needs! 686368



- e98887
by:

I have never seen a lock so simple to use. Looks great too. I bet it going to make thieves think twice before stealing my trailer. 686345



- e98887
by:

Just What I needed Worked well Fast Ser vice 686288



- e98887
by:

I was worried that the shaft wouldn't be long enough but the description was accurate and the lock works perfectly. Ordering was easy, delivery was timely. I will use etrailer.com again. 686254



- e98887
by:

this locking pin fit great,, 686188



- e98887
by:

Works great 686122



- e98887
by:

We were very happy with the quality of the product. It fits perfectly. 686094



- e98887
by:

This product worked exactly as I had hoped. It fit my trailer perfectly with no gaps on either side, making it harder to use bolt cutters on it. 686057



- e98887
by:

It works as expected but I wished it were slightly shorter. 685997



- e98887
by:

Had a great experience with etrailer. Found my product quickly, shipped same day and arrived on time. I will certainly use them again. 685992



- e98887
by:

Works very well. I particularly like the "screw on" design, as I believe it is much more secure than the twist lock types. This is for the Trailer Coupler Lock. However, I also bought the Receiver lock, and am very happy with it as well - for the same reasons. 685954



- e98887
by:

Looks well made, but I haven’t had an opportunity to use it yet 685953



- e98887
by:

Great product! 685882



- e98887
by:

I love these...I just wish that my existing locks' keys could be matched... 685849



- e98887
by:

It will work, but not what i expected. Threaded style lock. Does not seem very sturdy. Good enough to keep accidental hitch unlatching, and keep the honest people from stealing. 685840



- e98887
by:

This was the one lock I needed to fit my hitch. After a year, it still operates like new. Small but sturdy. Easy to get off and on and appears to be very secure. After a year of use, I still would buy this lock again. 685788



- e98887
by:

I was looking for something to prevent trailer theft while attached to my truck. This coupler lock is exactly what I needed. 685725



- e98887
by:

I feel safe pulling my boat around town and stopping in the bait shop and getting gas knowing it will safe and secure and I can launch the boat and the trailer is safe on shore. 685688



- e98887
by:

Thank for your help Pat, on time and perfect as always. 685493



- e98887
by:

This is nice - quick way to secure the trailer coupler. I thought that twisting the key a few times would be more hassle than just the push and click type. I found I could just hold the key in twist the other end - as they do in their video! Duh. It is nice they come in various lengths and you can get them with the key coded to their receiver lock. Now if they could just make a lock that covers the ball too and use the same key - that would be great. Can't have too many locks on your trailer. This now lives on my trailer - I did use some light oil in the lock to make it easier to use down the road. 685454



- e98887
by:

Love the locks just what i was looking for 685435



- e98887
by:

Fits great & berry well made 685382



- e98887
by:

Perfect for trailer. Easy to use, end cap protects opening for key. Great service from etrailer.com. 685370



- e98887
by:

Works great, so far no rust 685368



- e98887
by:

I use it for a bulldog hitch to lock trailer to truck works great very sturdy 685287



- e98887
by:

I had to have a previous hitch lock cut off and was looking on-line for a replacement. Saw the picture of the one I wanted, ordered it, and received it in a very timely manner. I am very satisfied with my purchase. Thank you. 685269



- e98887
by:

Great trailer hitch lock - exactly what I wanted and needed. Only thing that could have made my shopping experience faster would be pictures and names of different types of trailer hitches. I wasn't sure about 7692 until I watched one of the videos that clearly showed the lock on my hitch. I don't know how many different types/styles/designs of trailer hitches there are so I don't know how many locks would NOT work on my hitch. Sometimes you have to shop by 'process of elimination' but if you don't know how many products are wrong, it's tough to know which is right. 685228



- e98887
by:

I received excellent customer service from Brenden C. The 2-1/2" trailer coupler lock fits perfectly on my trailer with bulldog-type hitch coupler (excellent fit/very secure). The keyed-alike option makes life easy - only 1-key for all locking devices. I highly recommend etrailer.com (great people providing excellent customer service!) 251809



- e98887
by:

Does what it needs to do. Simple to use and maintain. Easy Peasy...... 685164



- e98887
by:

Very happy with the product. Works extremely well, easy on/off application. Solves all my locking needs, both when hooked to my truck, or when standing alone. 685039



- e98887
by:

lock works well, it's a bit clunky due to the fact that you have to screw/unscrew the locking piece several revolutions to complete the locking function/remove the keyas always Etrailer did an excellent job sending my order very quickly 684885



- e98887
by:

Locking mechanism is a screw on type. Overall quality seems great. 2.5" span fits my Big Tex 70pi 7k forged coupler perfectly with a little extra width to spare. 684880



- e98887
by:

I looked all over for this particular lock. I was so happy to find this one and that it works so well. I bought two and to find that I had the option to have them keyed alike was even better. 684800



- e98887
by:

Very well made, is not loose or sloppy like many others I have tried.screw design seems much more secure and allows it to fit snug to coupler. Wish there was a stainless steel version available (reason for 4 stars), but this is still worth the money! 684750



- e98887
by:

Love the option of keying them alike, no more fumbling around with three key for three locks anymore! 684685



- e98887
by:

Delivered as promised, lock has not been used yet, but looks and feels like it will do the job. 684675



- e98887
by:

Quick delivery, the lock is perfect for my hitch when truck and trailer are sitting at boat launch. 684640



- e98887
by:

Excellent Product - and it is ideal to have the same key for use with three tow vehicles and three trailers. 684603



- e98887
by:

Have used locks like these on my boat and utility trailers for years now with no problems with them. Although these could probably be defeated with a hacksaw, combining them with a locking hitch insert and a clamping wheel lock gives me more peace of mind leaving the trailer somewhere. 684584



- e98887
by:

Received my order very fast. Nice product and the keys fit both locks just like I ordered. Thanks 684549



- e98887
by:

Exactly what I needed for my 2" ball "bulldog" hitch. Very fast order processing and delivery. 684454



- e98887
by:

This is what you will need for a bulldog hitch to replace a 1/4" pin if you want to lock your trailer to your truck. You have to have the 2 1/2" size one. 684278

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Coupler Locks

Do you have a question about this Trailer Coupler Lock?


  • Comparing Demco and Titan Disc Brake Actuators with Electric Lockouts
  • That is a tough question to answer as both are excellent manufacturers with their respective pros/cons. In regards to brake actuators, they both make and manufacture them here in the U.S.A. and they both come with a one year warranty. In regards to differences, Demco makes a wide range of different trailer and towing products whereas Titan specializes more in trailer brakes. WIth that being said we have had more positive feedback from Titan products in regards to trailer brakes, actuator...

  • Is Buyers Products Pintle Hook # 337PH10 Compatible with B&W # BWPMHD14004
  • The Buyers Products 10 Ton Pintle Hook # 337PH10 referenced in your question is indeed compatible with the B&W Pintle Hook Mounting Plate # BWPMHD14004 that you also mentioned. I went out to our warehouse to measure the bolt hole spacing on the pintle hook to verify this. Both items feature a 16,000 pound towing capacity. For mounting hardware, I actually recommend the Buyers Products Mounting Kit # 3378520, as it was specifically designed for this model Pintle Hook. If you want...

  • Pin Lock Recommendation for Trailer Coupler # DM15000-52
  • Best option we have is the part # e98887 for a pin lock for the Demco coupler part # DM15000-52. This has a pin diameter of 1/4 inch and a length of 2-1/2 inches so it will fit tight to your coupler and fit well still.

  • Span of Pin on Bulldog Trailer Coupler Latch Lock # BD580409
  • When Bulldog coupler lock # BD580409 is locked the span of the pin is 3-5/8 inches. For a 2-1/2 inch span I recommend our etrailer.com lock # e98887.

  • How Long Should Hardware be to Install the Demco A-Frame eZ-Latch Trailer Coupler
  • I'd be happy to help you out with your questions on the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14793-52. 1. Yes, you can remove your old welded on coupler by using a grinder to cut the welds. Another popular option is to use a torch to cut the welds but either way is fine. 2. The 1/2" grade 5 bolts are correct and the length really just depends on your trailer frame. You basically just need to make sure they are long enough to reach through both the coupler and your frame and still have...

  • Coupler Lock Available to Fit UFP A-60 Coupler
  • Yes, the Trailer Coupler Lock # e98887 that you referenced will work with a UFP A-60 coupler lock. The product picture for this lock shows it being used on an A-60. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Channel Mount Coupler and Prodigy RF Installation on Small Trailer Towed By 2010 Tacoma
  • The Demco # DM12688-95 you've looked at would be a good choice. The 2 inch channel mount coupler is compatible with a 3 inch channel, and has bolt spacing of 2 inches on center. Demco is known for high quality products, you'll get years of service out of the coupler. With a 10K capacity it'll be a lot stronger than you really need, but whenever you're talking weight capacities and safety, a little overkill is a good thing. I've heard of absolutely no problems with the Demco Ez-Latch...

  • Trailer Coupler Lock For Pintle Hook / Hitch
  • We have a few options that you may wish to consider. If you are looking for a lock for the hook or hitch alone, I would recommend our etrailer.com coupler lock, part # e98887. This lock has a 1/4 inch diameter pin that is 2-1/2 inches long and has a covered key slot that prevents corrosion. Another trailer coupler lock I would recommend would be the Master Lock Adjustable Trailer Coupler Lock, part # 2847DAT. This coupler lock has a 2 inch shaft and may provide a more snug fit for the...

  • Recommended Coupler Lock for Low-Profile Trigger
  • For your A-frame coupler similar to the Fulton # FE443050303, I recommend the Trailer Coupler Lock - Deadbolt Style for Surge Brake with 2-1/2" Span # e98887. This lock will allow the ends of the lock to be on either side of the coupler giving you the compatibility with low profile trigger. Another option is the Master Lock Adjustable Trailer Coupler Lock - Stainless Steel # 2847DAT which will allow more of a custom fit.

  • Trailer Coupler Latch Lock for a 2-1/2 Inch Wide Latch
  • Our etrailer.com coupler lock # e98887 is designed to work on a coupler width up to 2-1/2 inches. Since that is what you have on your coupler, this lock will fit and it will be a nice snug fit, which is by design. For a second option I recommend the Bulldog adjustable coupler lock # BD580410. It has a useable span of 3/4 of an inch up to 2-7/8 inches which will allow for a little more wiggle room if that is something you want. I have included links to videos on both locks for you.

  • Availability of Keyed Alike Trailer Hitch and Trailer Coupler Lock

  • Trailer Coupler Latch Lock for 2-1/2 Inch Wide Coupler Latch

  • How to Prevent Theft of the Topline Bed Extender # BX4004-02
  • What you would do to deter theft of the bed extender # BX4004-02 is to use security type of hardware. Something that requires an uncommon specialty tool to install/remove. That would secure the mounts that attach to the tailgate. To secure the extender to the mounts you would have to replace the pins that hold the extender on. Something like # e98887 or a similar lock could work. Or something like the Toylok # LC337120 is another option. It would also be good for securing other items...

  • Couple Lock Recommendation that Can be Keyed Alike
  • I have a solution for you, but the Bulldog Coupler Lock part # BD580410 that you referenced can not be keyed alike. For a similar lock that can be keyed alike you would want our etrailer.com lock part # e98886. The usable span of this lock is 2 inches. For one with a 7/8 inch span you would want the # e98889. Or for 2-1/2 inches, part # e98887.

  • 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.

  • Can etrailer.com Coupler Lock # e98887 Work to Lock B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch to Ford Truck
  • The rotating handles on the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3600 feature a 3/8 inch holes for the included pin to keep them in place so our etrailer.com Coupler Lock # e98887 that you referenced, which features a 1/4 inch pin diameter, would fit and work well to lock the handles. This will secure the hitch to the bed of your Ford truck when it's not in use to deter theft. I do still recommend using the original pins and clips to secure the legs when you're actually towing....

  • Recommended Trailer Coupler Lock with At Least 1-1/2 Inch Span
  • Our etrailer.com Coupler Lock # e98887 that you referenced is a great option for helping to prevent theft of your trailer, however we are not able to key it alike to your N009 key. This lock does feature a 2-1/2 inch span, which sounds like it will work great for your coupler, and 2 keys are included. This particular lock can be ordered keyed alike if you wish, meaning if you order more than one and select the "Keyed Alike" option on the product page, each coupler lock will be compatible...

  • Locking Pin That Will Fit On The Upright Mast Of The Rhino-Rack T-Load Load Part # RRRTL001
  • I have the perfect solution for you to lock the upright mast to the horizontal load bars on your Rhino-Rack T-Load Load Assist and Support Bar part # RRTL002. As you have identified the opening of having a 1/4" diameter, you will want the Trailer Coupler Lock part # e98887. The locking pin also has a span of 2-1/2" therefore, will work on your 2" diameter shaft. You will also want to drill a 1/4" hole through the inner shaft in order for this pin to the lock the two together.
