Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - BX8858

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (92 Customer Reviews)

This Blue Ox receiver lock has a pin diameter of 5/8" and locks your Blue Ox tow bar to a 2" x 2" receiver.


Wheel feels very solid and I received it quickly. I had it welded to 5/16" wall 2" X 2" steel tubing so I can insert it when necessary . I didn't want to weld it under the tow hitch itself because of already low clearance . When inserted into the tow hitch the wheel extends 3/4" lower than hitch. My truck is a 2022 Chevy single axel cutaway.


E trailer had locking hitch pins that I needed and keyed them the same Love not having to figure out what key goes with what pin. Everything was in stock and shipping was fast.


Have used it primarily with u-haul trailers. Sturdy, good locking, functional, would buy again.


Great build. Heavy duty locking mechanism. Have no doubts this lock will hold up over time. Marked down one star because it's a little short for the gen 2.5 Tundra's receiver hitch and required me to shave off some metal off the stock receiver to get it to fit.


Delivery was right on time! Thank you “etrailer” I will definitely be placing more orders with you.


I have not used this lock yet, but I wanted to take this opportunity to commend etrailer for their unparalleled customer service. This is not my first order and it will certainly not be the last. I wish other companies were even half as attentive and efficient.


Did a test fit, fit perfect lock ez on ez off will do the job.

The lock works great just sprayed with wd-40 to keep it working smooth.
Richard D - 08/10/2022


I just got around to installing my new lock. It fits good and I will feel better knowing that the tow bar will be safe.


Works well. Thanks


High quality you expect from Blue Ox. Works!


Did it's job well, unfortunately, when I upgraded to a 2.5inch receiver hitch the lock no longer fit


Strong and easy to lock, non intrusive with safety chains or electrical equipment


I recently bought several products from etrailer including a Curt 2” receiver hitch, Yakima bike rack, and a Blue Ox locking hitch pin. ettrailer was super easy to buy from. They definitely had the best prices and super quick shipping and their fit guide worked perfect when trying to get a product that will work with what I have. The Blue Ox locking hitch pin works great for securing your hitch. Fits perfect and is super easy to use. Would definitely recommend E-trailer to friends and family.


Had the lock 1 year, still looks good and have had no problems with it. I actually have 2 and would definitely recommend this product and of course etrailer. Great products, prices,fast shipping and great customer service.


I like securing my expensive blue-ox from theft. Disappointed that the chrome so quickly rusted.


Added a step down receiver to the receiver on the new motorhome and need to remove the tow bar when it is being stowed. I hate using the spring mounted bolts that are standard (hard on the fingers) and this works great. Be sure you know whether you need one that is 2" or 2 1/2". I measured and bought the 2" one.


I was surprised at how well this locking pin was designed. It is an excellent choice!


The lock has started to rust and is hard to unlock with the key even though I have kept the rubber keyhole cover in place to protect it.


This product was good, but did not fit my hitch because I actually needed a inside length of 3 inch to 3 1/2 long to fit. This one was too short. However, not the fault of etrailer. Had to send back.


Package arrived in good shape - just what I ordered. Installed easily & works great to tow car behind RV with bike rack in upper receiver spot. Arrived one day ahead of promised. Thanks


etrailer is an excellent with great product. No fault of etrailer delivery via USPS was a disaser, I would have paid extra for UPS / Fed Ex


I worked with Lori B. for a return and an order. She handles both very well with professionalism and we jokes a little bit which made the phone conversation very pleasant and comfortable. Two thumbs up for her. My next order, I'll ask for her again by name. Thank you.


It’s great


Bought the Blue Ox tow bar also. Couldn't be happier.


Received my order today and was surprised by the beefy size of the lock. The finish is very nice! This will definitely secure my solid stock Draw-Tite ball mount.

  • Is B&W Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Available With Two Locks In Package
    The Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part # BX8858 is only available with one lock in a package. They do not have the Keyed-alike option. When ordering this lock you can change the quantity in your cart to add the second lock.

  • What To Do if You Lose Blue Ox Hitch Lock Keys
    Best option is to write down the key number for the Blue Ox hitch lock part # BX8858 that you referenced when you get it. While we don't carry replacement keys for this kit if you contact Blue Ox directly they'd be able to set you up with replacement keys. Best option though is put one key on your normal key ring so that it's always with you and then store the extra somewhere where you won't lose it and then if ever needed you wouldn't be without a key.

  • Replacement Hitch Pin Lock For 2 Hitch On 2004 Toyota Tundra
    It sounds like you have hitch pin lock with a barrel style key like part # BX8858 unfortunately it is impossible to know which locking pin you have without at least knowing the lock cylinder number or the brand. If you could see the face of the lock cylinder there may be a key number on that and I can try to go off of that. If you are not able to find any information on the lock, then you would need to cut off the pin lock with a cut-off wheel or an angle grinder. You can replace it with...

  • Locking Hitch Pin for a Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar
    The Blue Ox Alpha tow bar, # BX7380, and all hitch mounted tow bars fit in a 2 inch receiver. So you would need a 5/8 inch diameter lock such as # BX8858. A Class II accessory would have a 1-1/4 inch shank whereas Class III accessories have 2 inch shanks.

  • What Does the Span of a Locking Hitch Pin Refer To
    The span of a locking hitch pin like the Blue Ox # BX8858 means the amount of space that can fit between the two walls of the hitch receiver- so yes, basically the distance from the outside wall of one side of the receiver to the other. We have noticed that certain Toyota factory hitches have a thicker walls on their receivers that measure 2-7/8" instead of just under 2-3/4" so if you've got a Toyota truck with a factory receiver you would need to use a locking hitch pin like the # BX88212...

  • Hitch Lock for Blue Ox Tow Bar that's Keyed Alike to Base Plate Lock Setup
    Blue Ox makes a great hitch lock with the part number # BX8858 but another really great option is the Blue Ox Base Plate and Hitch Lock set part # BX88101 which comes with locks for the base plate to the tow bar as well as the tow bar to the hitch all using the same key.

  • Availability of Locking Hitch Pin that Several Can Be Ordered that Use Same Key
    I have a solution I can provide for you, but the part # BX8858 that you referenced can't be keyed alike. Instead the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98882 is a very similar lock that can be keyed alike and would work great for you. All you need to do is select keyed alike from the drop down menu on the product page and then select how many locks you need and we will ship you out as many as you need keyed alike.

  • Recommended Hitch Pin For Tow Bar Application
    The hitch pin I recommend for a 2 inch receiver tow bar is 5/8 inch like # PC3. For a locking hitch pin to secure your tow bar to your motorhome, I recommend the Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # BX8858. A 1/2 inch pin is not big enough.

  • Hitch Lock for Use in B&W Class V Hitch BWHDRH25602
    I am sorry but the part BWTS0049B is not a valid item number. The B&W 2-inch hitch receiver that fits your 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty is part # BWHDRH25602. In this 2-inch hitch you can use the Blue Ox hitch lock # BX8858.

  • Recommended Locking Hitch Pin for Toyota Factory Hitch on 2019 Toyota Tacoma
    I've actually seen this before with another one of our customers and we found out that apparently the factory hitches that Toyota uses on their trucks and SUVs are a bit thicker than many of the aftermarket options. Instead of the # BX8858 you'll want to use the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # e98881. This locking hitch pin has the same 5/8" pin diameter, but is a bit longer with a 3-5/8" inside span that will fit your 2019 Toyota...

  • Will Blue Ox BX8858 Hitch Lock Work With Curt Class III Trailer Hitch
    The Blue Ox # BX8858 will work great with your Curt Class IIl # C13343 hitch. As long as the lock you choose has a inside span greater 2-5/8 or greater, it'll work with a typical Class III or IV hitch like the Curt model you specified. The span on this lock is 2-3/4 inches, so it'll work perfectly. Really, the only situation you'll run into where you'll need to be concerned if a given lock will work with a particular hitch is the factory Toyota hitch used on later model Tacoma or Tundra...

  • How to Stop Cargo Bags Melting From Exhaust With 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Cargo Carrier
    Well that stinks; I assume your cargo bags were in a hitch mounted cargo carrier which is why the exhaust melted them. Hopefully you have a 2 inch hitch on your Kia Sorento, and if so, what you can do is use what is called a high-low adapter that will basically give your cargo carrier lift. Keep in mind that an adapter will lower the tongue weight capacity (which is the max capacity your cargo carrier, bags, and gear can weigh), of your hitch by 50 percent. So for example, if your Sorento...

  • Recommended Locks for B&W Stow and Go Ball Mount in Hitch
    The hitch lock I recommend for the B&W Stow and Go Ball Mount # BWTS10047B, you were looking at, is the # BX8858. Currently, there is no lock available that will replace the adjustable pins on the B&W ball mount. If your coupler is locked to the hitch ball it would take someone with this exact ball mount assembly to be able to steal your trailer so it would be highly unlikely. I have linked the above mentioned products to this page for your viewing and purchasing convenience.

  • Recommended Hitch Pin Lock To Replace 5/8 Inch Pin And Clip
    For your 2 inch receiver, I recommend the Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # BX8858. This is a 5/8 inch pin with a chrome finish to resist rust and corrosion. It has a tubular style key for greater security and a dust cover to keep moisture and debris out. This is only for a 2 inch hitch. If you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch that is a class V, then I recommend the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # e98881. This is longer...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for Level Trailer Towing with 2014 Honda Pilot
    If you have a 2 inch receiver on your 2014 Honda Pilot, then I recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10038B. This ball mount has a 2 inch and a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball and is adjustable up to 10-1/2 inches total to ensure the proper fit for your trailer. You can use the mount either in the drop position which is most likely what you need, or you can invert it and put it in the rise position. The really nice aspect of this mount is not only the precision height adjustment to...

  • Recommended B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount for 3/4 Rise
    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS10047C that you referenced is actually perfect for your application! The drop and rise measurements mentioned are for the max adjustments. Since there are adjustment holes that go all the way to the top of the shank you will be able to achieve the correct 3/4" rise for your application. It might not be able to get an exact 3/4" rise but it will be close enough for you to tow level. I do recommend adding the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # BX8858 to deter...

  • Does the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount Include Hitch PIn
    The B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10033B referenced in your question does not include a hitch pin. I recommend adding a locking hitch pin like the Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # BX8858. This chrome receiver lock will work great to secure the ball mount to your hitch receiver while also helping to deter theft. The tube-style key lock resists picking and the weather-resistant plastic dust cap will keep the cylinder free from water and debris. 2 keyed-alike keys are included....

  • Recommended B&W Tow & Stow Ball Mount with 7 Inch Drop
    I do have a solution for you, however the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10037C referenced in your question will provide a drop of up to 5 inches. For a drop of 7 inches, I instead recommend the B&W # BWTS10040C. This will give you a rise of up to 7-1/2 inches or a drop of up to 7 inches and features the same chrome plating on the shank and hitch balls. It has a weight capacity of 7,500 pounds with the 2 inch ball and a 10,000 pound capacity with the 2-5/16 inch ball. I have attached...

  • Recommended Best 2 Inch Receiver Lock for Strength and Reliability
    I think the Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # BX8858 is the best and most reliable receiver lock. It has the tube key and the cover to keep dirt and grime out of the lock. Since you are obviously towing, you may also want to consider a coupler lock for your trailer. I recommend the Fastway Universal Trailer Coupler Lock # DT25013KA. This is the most universal fit lock and the most reliable I've found for deterring theft. It surrounds the coupler and has a tube key...
