This hitch combines with a Lock 'N' Roll trailer-end coupler (sold separately) to create a safe, secure, fully articulating connection that's great for towing whether you're on the road or off-road. It's more secure than a traditional ball hitch, and it's more comfortable and quieter than a pintle setup. The Lock 'N' Roll connects quickly and easily, and can adapt to any towing conditions.


Strong, Safe Connection

When using a traditional ball coupler, it can be hard to tell if the coupler is fully latched around the ball. You can head out assuming the connection is secure, only to have the trailer pop off of the ball and disconnect while you're towing. With the Lock 'N' Roll, that won't happen.


Lock N Roll Connected

This unique hitch is designed to interlock with a matching trailer-side coupler to form a tight, secure connection. Unlike on a ball coupler, the latching components on the Lock 'N' Roll system are easy to see, so you can tell at a glance if the connection is secure.


Once secure, the Lock 'N' Roll setup offers a wide range of motion, which makes for a smooth ride. Because of the articulating action of the combined hitch and coupler, the Lock 'N' Roll connection can handle the harsh bumps and road shock that could otherwise stress and potentially damage a ball coupler.


The Lock 'N' Roll connection also makes your trailer less vulnerable to theft. Unlike a traditional ball coupler, which is compatible with any hitch ball of a matching size, the trailer-side Lock 'N' Roll coupler can only connect to a vehicle-side Lock 'N' Roll hitch. So your trailer cannot be towed away unless it's connected to a vehicle with a Lock 'N' Roll hitch installed.


With the Lock 'N' Roll, you can have peace of mind knowing your connection will not come apart or succumb to damage caused by road shock, nor will your trailer be vulnerable to theft.


Comfortable Off-Road Towing

The pintle hitch connection is the most common setup when towing off road because of the flexibility in the connection. But that flexible connection can also result in a lot of slop. This can cause uncomfortable jerking as well as rattle and noise. In addition, when using a pintle/lunette ring setup, it can be difficult to back up your vehicle and trailer without jackknifing. And it can be hard to disconnect at certain angles, which may be a necessity when overlanding.


The Lock 'N' Roll assembly, on the other hand, offers a close-fit, slop-free connection that's designed for off-roading. This close-fitting design provides a smoother ride than a pintle/lunette ring connection with less rattle. It also makes it easy to back your vehicle and trailer up without jackknifing.


When combined, the Lock 'N' Roll hitch and coupler also create a fully articulating connection that's great for off-roading. The bearing that's built into the vehicle-end hitch allows for 360 degrees of rotation, which means that your trailer could actually roll all the way over and not take your vehicle with it. The connection also pivots side to side and up and down, making it easy to take rough trails without jarring your setup. This also allows for fast and easy disconnection, even at extreme angles.


How Lock 'N' Roll Works

Lock N Roll Fully Connected

Each Lock 'N' Roll setup requires 2 parts - a trailer end and a vehicle end. Together they create a strong, secure connection. To connect, just line up the trailer end and vehicle end together and place the outer metal tabs of the trailer-end coupler into the hooks on the vehicle-end hitch. Then fold the latching plates on the vehicle-end hitch down and secure them in place over the tabs using the included pin and clip. With the latching plates secured, the Lock 'N' Roll assembly will stay firmly connected.


In Action Diagram

When the trailer-side coupler and vehicle-side hitch are secured together, they form an articulating assembly with 3 axes of directional motion. The uniquely designed bearing on the vehicle-side hitch allows the connection to rotate a full 360 degrees. The trailer-side coupler's hinge allows the connection to pivot to the left and to the right. And when the 2 parts are joined, the tabs will roll inside of the hooks so that the entire assembly can tilt up and down.


Towing with the Lock 'N' Roll is easy, and it gives you a connection that's both flexible and secure.

Review from a similar Vehicle Side Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Very nice strong trailer hitch. This is the second Lock N Roll hitch that I have had and both have performed as expected. I think they have become the preferred option for off-road trailer towing. Built like a tank!

Review from a similar Vehicle Side Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Excellent. I really liked how the shipping information was updated with the persons name on every step of the process. Arrived quickly. The only thing I didn’t like was the fact that the receiver didn’t come with the hitch pin that attaches to my trucks receiver. I didn’t notice this when I ordered.

Review from a similar Vehicle Side Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


The Lock N Roll is a great towing set-up for off road trailers. Super strong, great articulation and made in USA. Just an FYI that I have not seen mentioned on any web site: the rise/drop is measured from the center of the 2" receiver.


Comments
It still works great. Really put it to the test crossing the Great Basin west to east and back. My trailer felt safe and secure thru multitudes of different terrain.

Had the Lock n Roll hitch for a year. Many off road adventures towing our trailer. Has worked perfectly and find it easier to use than a conventual ball hitch.

I always receive great customer service whenever I call etrailer. The hold time can be 5-15 minutes but the knowledge on the other end of the phone is worth waiting for. The lock n roll coupler is a proven and necessary piece of equipment if you are planning on taking your off-road trailer off the beaten path like I am.

Review from a similar Vehicle Side Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


We got it together with the trailer part/side; and the same: So far it resolved the problem we had. You just need to be careful when driving at speeds over 50 miles if full, because the trailer will be able to move in all axles if a sudden move/turn from your wheel; though you can add sway bars. We are glad we bought it and we may buy another one.

Quality trailer hitch. Exactly as advertised. Strong heavy steel. Good welds. Fits perfectly. Prompt delivery. It will certainly enhance my off road trailering experience. The only modification I made was to remove the needle style zerk fitting and replaced it with a standard zerk fitting. Makes for easier lubing the joint. Glad to be rid of my restrictive ball hitch.

Review from a similar Vehicle Side Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Customer service was amazing. Odelia took the time to help me find the right product for my Jeep. She was very friendly and patient with me reviewing the different options! I will return just because of her customer service. The product itself was as advertised and is well made and easy to install. It was exactly as Odelia indicated. The best part is I also received it a day early, which gave me the time I needed to get it out on even though it was simple. I will shop here again!!! Thank you Odelia and etrailer!

  • Can Lock N Roll 336VS511 Articulating Hitch Be Used in Both Rise or Drop Position

The # 336VS511 Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch can be used in either the rise or the drop position, it will offer an either 2-1/2 rise or drop, depening on which orientation the ball mount is installed in.

  • Usable Span and Diameter of Replacement Pin for Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch for 2 Receivers
    We don't have a pin lock that would replace the pin of the Lock N Roll # 336VS511 that you referenced but if you found a 1/2 inch diameter pin that has a usable span of 4-3/4 inches that would work since the replacement pin # 336HP001 has these dimensions.

  • Converting Pintle Setup of M416 Stevens Military Trailer to Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler
    Since your Stevens M416 has an A-frame design the correct coupler setup you'd need for your trailer to use a Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler would be the part # 336TS504 which was designed for A-frame trailers for a direct fit that won't extend the trailer tongue. This would have to be welded on which I am sure you wouldn't have an issue with. If you were really wanting to extend the tongue of the trailer out though you'd have to use the # 336TS508 instead and find someone willing...

  • Does Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch Require Lock N Roll Trailer Coupler
    Yes, the Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch for 2" Receivers # 336VS511 does need the trailer to have a matching Lock N Roll coupler.

  • Can I Back Up Normally When Using a Lock N Roll Trailer Coupler
    The 360 degree rotation of the Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Coupler # 336VS511, along with the left to right and up and down articulation allows fantastic maneuverability, especially when backing a trailer around a corner and into a tight spot.

  • Does Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch part # 336VS511 Reduce Weight Capacity
    When using an articulating hitch like the Lock N Roll part # 336VS511 there is no reduction in weight capacity on the hitch or the trailer when compared to a ball mount. If your truck has a 5,000 lb weight capacity and the trailer you are getting weighs 6,600 lbs the only solution is a different truck with a higher towing capacity.

    We've checked with Lock N Roll in the past and while they don't offer a locking pin for the ball mount portion of the # 336VS511 they do know that the Fastway Hitch Lock part # FA86-00-3660 does fit it.
