While etrailer has really great products of which this is only one, of the highest value to me is the quality and integrity of their people. I contacted them via the online purchase portal asking for different products and multiples of those products all keyed alike resulting in a dozen items with one key. Well it did not do as planned on my end but in the end and with no monetary compensation at all I have what I hoped for all untangled skillfully by Victoria G. I will never hesitate to make my purchases at etrailer, a customer for life!



- e98887

Easy to install and I like the way the key tightens the axle of the lock. I did make one easy modification for my use. I added a nut as a spacer so when locked, no part of the axle shows. This makes it a little more difficult for someone to saw off the thinner axle part. See two pictures attached.

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!)

Already had one that I was pleased with. Needed keyed alike locks for 4 trailers. Was able to swap a new key mechanism with my old pin.



- e98887
by:

I am really quite happy with these locks (I purchased 4 that are keyed alike). They are a bit unusual in that the whole locking chamber rotates separate from the rest of the lock several time to open it (I learned to hold the key still and rotate the body of the lock). Two of mine are on trailers outside and have shown no rust or other issues in one year.

This is just what I was looking for. Fits my surge brake coupler on my MasterCraft boat trailer. I wish was stainless steel like my drawbar hitch one that I got from ETrailer, but it still looks good and will do what I need.

As a tournament walleye angler for over 20 years , I have been trailering a boat around this great country of our. And the etrailer lock has never been more helpful in letting me have the security and piece of mind that my equipment is going to be safe. Thanks Again etrailer for all your great service.

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.

The coupler lock was just as pictured. Very sturdy and well made. I will be using it this weekend for my first camping trip. The only thing that I didn't like was how long it took the USPS to get it to me.

I just received this and put it on the trailer to lock it for the weekend. It seems more durable than the last type I'd used that I could just kick hard enough and break off. I did not try that with this one of course. The real test will come after a year of use and how well it holds up and weathers the winter.

  • Recommended Coupler Lock for 2020 Airstream Flying Cloud with Demco eZ Latch Coupler
    The best locking device we have for a 2020 Airstream Flying Cloud with Demco eZ Latch Coupler is the etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock part # e98887. There should be a pin hole on the side of the coupler which this lock will fit into and stop either a hitch ball from being coupled or uncoupled. If you are looking for a wrap-around style lock, you could use the Fastway Universal Trailer Coupler Lock part # DT25013KA. That said, you could use both lock styles as well if needed.

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.

    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.

  • How Many Sets of Electric Trailer Brakes For Tandem 3,500 lb Axles When Converting From Hydraulic
    Excellent questions, and let's start with your query about having brakes on both axles. The answer is that you do indeed want to have brakes on both of your 3,500 lb tandem axles. The reason is because just one set of 3,500 lb brakes won't have the stopping power required for a trailer that weighs 5,000 or 6,000 lbs, and also just one set of brakes will also wear out very quickly as they'll be overworked for the load they are rated for. So for the best stopping power and safest way...

    I'd recommend a universal coupler lock set like the # DT25013KA from Fastway. The coupler lock is compatible with 1-7/8, 2 or 2-5/16 inch couplers. I'd also go with a latch lock like # e98887 to prevent the coupler from coming unlatched while towing. It'll also prevent the trailer from being hitched up.

  • Best Coupler Lock for Demco Channel Tongue Coupler
    My best recommendation is the etrailer Surge Brake Coupler Lock # e98887. This lock fits into either one of the two pin holes of your coupler # 12564. This locks your latch into place so one can't disconnect it from your tow vehicle. It also works when your trailer is stored unhitched since thieves can't hitch your trailer to their vehicle with this lock in the way. Another popular lock for trailer storage is the etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock for Flat Lip Couplers # e98893. This completely...

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.

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.

    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.

A pin style, the etrailer Surge Brake Coupler Lock part # e98887 specifically, is far more universal and has a keyed alike option. This is what I recommend using for multiple trailers.

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.
