Great looking product. Works as advertised. I think most would-be trailer thieves would keep moving when they notice this lock. However, if the bad guy was motivated and prepared, I don't think this product would put up too big of a fight against a heavy prybar (I don't think a flat prybar would get this off, but a big long round bar prybar/crowbar definitely would). This is good security, not high security.

Great product. I feel it’s a great deterrent for a would be thief. Bright color tells thief “not an easy target.”

@Wade Deterrence is very important!


by:

Have locks on all my trailers and like the fact that I purchase different colored locks to simplify finding the proper key having many trailers,wish that some day having one key that works on all the locks.



by:

The e trailer coupler lock works perfectly with trailer that I have. I’ve had no issues or problems with the lock.



by:

Since my trailers are in view from the street I put locks on them. This is easy on an off but still more secure then my older ones. So I do use them more and I don’t have get down on ground with an Allen wrench to put it on. Luv it!



by:

This is a nice lock. My trailer is a 2016 Riverside Retro and this lock fits on the coupler perfectly.



by:

Guys, I think you are all doing a great Job! I made a big order. Then I had Changes that Kate stepped in and took care of. She helped me in making choices. canceling some long lead parts for alternatives. I got everything I needed. Even the long lead chocks. She keep me informed the entire couple of weeks. until everything arrived. She was great! Thanks Ross



by:

Lock works as advertised. Fair pricing and good shipping experience.



by:

This fits great on my Forest River RV Trailer with a flat lip on the tongue of the trailer. It is very easy to put on and take off and very secure on the trailer.



by:

I am sure it works well if it fit. Either I was confused or the description was misleading. Either way it does not fit my rig. This does not fit older Airstreams.



by:

Bought for my travel trailer. Unfortunately our hitch is “stubby” with a “ramp” piece to help guide the ball into the hole better which prevents the lock from sliding far enough on & lock. Decided to keep for use on jetski trailer instead of returning.



by:

Sometimes key won't turn but other than that works great.

This can be a common problem with these type of locks. You can use a penetrating oil in the lock to help loosen it up. It will help with turning the key in the lock. Has it been happening all year or just when it is cold?



by:

just received it. installed it on the hitch but it fit a little tight and i had to tap it in in order to lock



by:

Nice added security, goes on and off smoothly. Had it a year now and it's weathering excellent.



by:

Everything that I've ever ordered from etrailer has been top quality. Service has always been excellent. Shipping has been fast.



by:

It was just what I wanted and delivered in a timely manner.



by:

great addition, works great, easy to use, I have multiple trailers and it's great to be able to have them keyed alike. And the yellow color makes it easy to find, unlike black which disappear.



by:

This lock is a little too wide 4.50 on a 3.5 tongue . I,m going to install 2 pins 7/16” wide into the sides.



by:

Appears to work fine



by:

It works very well thank you



by:

Nice product
Easy to install



by:

Heavy duty and has not rusted like other trailer locks will



by:

This is an excellent coupler lock. I have tried several other similar locks and this on is the best yet. It is solidly built and will certainly deter theft.



by:

Does the job by acting as a good deterrent from a "drive by snatch and gab thief". A determined thief could eventually beat it off with a sledgehammer. The bold yellow color would ward a thief to another unprotected trailer.



by:

Really satisfied with the trailer coupler lock.

Brady

Still working great and looks almost new even after sitting outside for a year!

  • 2 Inch Trailer Coupler Locks that Can be Keyed Alike for a Fleet of Trailers
    We have several coupler locks for 2 inch couplers that can be ordered keyed alike but the Gorilla Guard # 63228 is not one of them. I have included a link for you to the ones that can be ordered keyed alike. A lock such as # e98895 is similar to the Gorilla Guard. You would just select the keyed alike option, near the add to cart button on the product page, select the quantity and they will all be keyed the same.

  • Trailer Coupler Lock for a U-Haul 5x8 Enclosed Trailer
    There isn't much information on what size coupler the U-Haul trailers use. However, they state they are compatible with 1-7/8" and 2" hitch balls. So, more than likely they use 2" couplers. The 2-5/16" Coupler Lock, part # e98895, will fit on them, but there will probably be quite a bit of play. I recommend going with the smaller version, part # e98897. This one is designed to fit both 1-7/8" and 2" couplers, so it will have a more snug fit around the U-Haul coupler. I've linked to a...

Instead you can use our Coupler Lock # e98895 for 2-inch and 2-5/16-inch balls since this works with lipped couplers up to 4-1/2-inches in width.

  • Can Lock Core for Older Gorilla Guard Coupler Lock Be Replaced
    You might be able to have a skilled locksmith remove and change out the lock core on your older Gorilla Guard trailer coupler lock, but for your application it might just be easier to replace the entire unit since the company that makes the keys (Horizon Global) was bought out earlier this year (2023) and there's no telling when or if they will have replacement parts available. If you do choose to replace the lock then I recommend the following: - 1-7/8" or 2" Coupler # e98897 - 2-5/16"...

    Correct, the etrailer.com Trailer Coupler Locks like part # e98895 or part # e98889 must all be purchased at the same time in order to take advantage of the keyed alike option. I wish we could match the lock to a set of keys you already have but this is simply not possible from our side of things. Therefore, it would be best to order a few extras if you think you will have multiple trailers. The coupler and pin locks will also both come with the same lock code if ordered together and the...

  • Recommended Coupler Lock For A 4-1/2" Wide Flat Lip Coupler
    We do have the etrailer coupler lock # e98895 which is made to fit a flat lip coupler up to 4-1/2" wide. This may be a very tight fit if you are right at 4-1/2". If you want to avoid any potential fitment issues, I recommend the Master Lock Trailer Coupler Lock # ML377KA. The design allows this lock to fit virtually any coupler with a flat lip, regardless of width. As you can see from the picture below, the lock does not "surround" the entire coupler, so it will undoubtedly work for you....

  • How to Use the etrailer Coupler Lock for Flat Lip Couplers
    I can absolutely explain how the etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock for your flat lip coupler works, and it is extremely simple. What happens is you will slide the lock over your flat lip coupler, and push the pin up - it won't take any strength at all, you can do it with a finger. With the pin up, just turn the key and you're done; it's locked to the coupler. When you want to remove it, turn the key in the opposite direction and the pin will come down. That's literally all there is to it!...

    I have a solution but unfortunately the Master Lock Trailer Coupler Lock part # ML389DAT can not be ordered with a specific key number.

This is designed to place through the coupler pin hole just under the latch and keep it from being able to operate. This will prevent it from opening or closing eliminating any issues.

  • Recommended Coupler, Coupler Latch and Locking Hitch Pins All Keyed Alike
    I may have a solution for you, but those MasterLock trailer locks you were looking at unfortunately cannot be keyed alike, so you'd need some different options. For the coupler locks I recommend using the etrailer 2-5/16" coupler lock # e98894 or etrailer 1-7/8" or 2" coupler lock # e98893. For the latch lock I recommend using the etrailer # e98885 and for the locking hitch pins I recommend using the # e98882. You could have all of these parts keyed alike so you'd only need 1 key.

If you prefer a coupler latch lock you can use # 2847DAT from Master Lock. This type of lock works with the trailer coupled or not.

The best solution to key everything alike with a variety of locks is going to be a couple of different BOLT locks, since they key to your vehicle's engine key and would provide you with the solution that you're looking for. If you've got a Ford truck, you'd want to use the # BL7032496 for the trailer coupler lock, the # BL7025290...
