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

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



- BX8858
by:

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



- BX8858
by:

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.



- BX8858
by:

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.

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.

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

A year later, still use it everyday.

by:

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



- BX8858
by:

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.



- BX8858
by:

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



- BX8858
by:

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.



- BX8858
by:

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.



- BX8858
by:

Very sturdy and we really like that it locks.



- BX8858
by:

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



- BX8858
by:

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.



- BX8858
by:

My dealings with you all over the years has always been top notch...thanks



- BX8858
by:

I use etrailer for all my trailer needs the price is always right the deliveries fast they always follow-up to make sure everything is okay is I appreciate what they do and will continue to use them just for that

Product as described. Use on pickup trailer hitch. Heavy duty.



- BX8858
by:

Love these, was glad to be able to find them again after I lost the last one. bought a spare just in case I left one on the bumper and drove off again.



- BX8858
by:

I switched to this model for the round key. It looks great and seems strong. The real test comes from riding under my truck for ten years.



- BX8858
by:

Fits and secures perfect. The Black ruber cover/cap fell off. Not a very secure fit. Other than that it works great.



- BX8858
by:

It was as describe "perfectly" in the product information, high quailty, simple to use, strong as an ox. Well worth the cost and prompt service from retailer and continued support on experience with product.

Greg was great to work with and as always service and shipment were top notch.

I keep my Blue Ox on my hitch 24/7, I don't think anyone would even try to take it !

Ask the Experts about this Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Lock

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Does Hitch Pin Lock Have a Normal Use
    There is not necessarily a specific lifespan that can be counted on with hitch lock like your Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # BX8858. If it gets used heavily and a lot of stress on it then a lock can wear down quicker than those that are used somewhat sparingly, but less than a year old is not a lot of time for the issues you are having. There are hitch locks for a 2" hitch that have warranties, such as the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98880 and Bulldog Lifelong...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2019 GMC Canyon
    I recommend installing the Class III Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13176 on your 2019 GMC Canyon because it is an easier installation than most of the other options and it has the safety chain loops located under the receiver for easier access. I have attached pictures and a video of this installed on a 2019 Colorado for you to reference. If you don't already have a wiring harness on your Canyon then I also recommend installing the Hopkins # HM40975-11998 for a fully functional 7-Way....

    By circular key, I believe you meant a barrel key, or barrel lock as they're sometimes called, and yes, there are a number of options for a lock that fits a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver that uses a barrel key, which are the following: - Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # BX8858 - Fastway Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # FA86-00-3160 - MaxxTow Hitch Receiver Lock # MT38FR Of these, I like the Blue Ox the best because of its superior forged steel construction as...

It will have a ground clearance of 10 inches from the bottom of the lip on the receiver tube. If you will be towing with this hitch receiver, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118461. This installs to factory wiring inside the cargo area behind the trim on the driver's side. I've attached a video...

For your trailer wiring, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118362.

    The Curt Trailer Hitch # C13304 comes only with the trailer hitch and hardware needed to install it on your 2018 Nissan Titan, but we do have wiring kits that are available as well. For a 4-Way wiring kit I recommend the Tekonsha # 119147KIT which comes with all of the wiring and connectors that you need. This kit draws power directly from your battery so as to protect the wiring on your Titan. If you are needing a fully functional 7-Way then you will also need to install the Hopkins...

  • Parts Needed to Install a 7-way Trailer Connector and Tow a Trailer with a 2009 Toyota Tacoma
    Yes, you can install a 7-way trailer connector on your 2009 Toyota Tacoma. There's a couple of options depending on your trailer. First you're going to need to start with a 4-way flat connector like you've already found. I suggest the Curt # C55513 which plugs into your truck's wiring either behind the taillights or the rear bumper. Once you have the 4-way, if your trailer does not have brakes you can use an adapter, # 37185, to go from the 4-way to provide a 7-way. However, installing...
