1 year followup: Very pleased with this set of 5 keyed-alike locks. With 3 boats and 2 travel trailers, digging for the correct key was always a pain. Now one key unlocks them all, and with the extra keys I can keep one in my garage, one in the shop, etc. so no time spent retrieving the key from my truck. The high visibility yellow powder coat lets folks know that my stuff is protected. Also, when parking the boat trailer in camp, I can double up security by using my pin type Master adjustable stainless latch lock as well.

Fits great, easy to use and I feel secure that no one will be able to hook up to my trailer! Great security investment, highly recommended.

Easy to install/remove. I do wish it was there was an option made of a different material. maybe a stainless steel? I think the aluminum could be overcome with a few good blows from a hand sledge. Love the fact that most products have videos. Very helpful in choosing the correct product.

It was snug, maybe a little too snug... had to sort of force it on in order to get the pin up. I would still rather have snug rather than loose.

I have yet to use it on a trip or in storage. I use it on a 2" coupler. Fits very good and should send a thief to another trailer.

I have three locks on my trailer. This one is made great. When i first put on wouldn't go all way on so I had to hit it with palm of hand then it locked. I will only guess because of paint is why it was difficult. But it's on and it works. Thanks

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Coupler Locks

  • Is etrailer Coupler Lock As Easy to Defeat as Curt Coupler Lock
    While the etrailer coupler lock part # e98897 and the Curt # C23086 are somewhat similar the etrailer has a different lock setup so it would not be able to be defeated in the same way. With that said I really like the Fastway coupler lock part # DT25013KA as fits easier and provides the best protection that we've found.

  • Comparing Different Types of Coupler Locks
    We have a variety of locks for your coupler, each with their own applications. If you have a fat lip coupler, I recommend the etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock - Flat Lip, part # e98897. This yellow lock can fit a 2" coupler and is an immediate deterrent as the color quickly grabs attention. The lock has a stem that reaches into the coupler and can't be wiggled free. If you don't have a fat lip coupler but still want a lock that reaches into the coupler, I recommend the EZ Lock Trailer...

  • 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!...

  • Can the Master Lock Trailer Coupler Lock be Keyed Alike
    I have a solution but unfortunately the Master Lock Trailer Coupler Lock part # ML389DAT can not be ordered with a specific key number. Instead the etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock for Flat Lip part # e98895 can be ordered keyed alike. It doesn't work on the 1 7/8" coupler, for that use the etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock part # e98897. These are very nice quality locks that will keep your trailer secured. Check out the video I did on them that I have linked it for you.

  • Can the Reese Tow and Store Lock Kit Be Keyed Alike
    The Reese Tow and Store Lock Kit part # RP7014700 does not have a keyed alike option so there would be no way to obtain multiple kits with the same key unfortunately. However, you could combine any of the etrailer.com locks and they would all come keyed alike so long as you select that option on the product page. I have attached a list of these options for you below. The etrailer.com Trailer Coupler Lock part # e98895 or part # e98897 could be combined with multiple etrailer.com Trailer...

  • 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...
