Video Transcript for Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Product Line Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox Receiver Lock. We've got three different sizes. For the Class 4 and 5 we've got the 5/8" extra long pin here. That part number is BX88212. Here in the middle we've got the Class 3 or Class 4, that's going to fit up to the 2" shank. This part number is BX8858.

We also have part number BX8859, this is for or Class 1 or Class 2. This one offers the 1/2" shank design. As you can see these are going to be perfect for securing your Blue Ox tow bar, ball mount, bike rack, cargo carrier, whatever it is you need to secure onto your vehicle and don't have to worry about unintentional disconnect or somebody taking it. Completely made in the United States. They put a nice chrome finish on it. It's going to give us a good, long lasting, good looking product.

There's a dust cap here on the end. That protects our cylinder style lock from any damage, dirt or debris getting inside of there. There's a couple different spots here you can see they've got a really nice nurled 00:01:18 or textured finish to it. It's going to help us get a good grip on it as we're trying to operate it in maybe some more extreme or inclement weather. As you can see here a cylinder key, just slide in 1/4 turn, we're going to have this release. This isn't like some of the other receiver hitch locks where you have to continually turn your key and thread that down on there. It's going to operate just like a standard hitch pin.

We'll slide it through, whether it's our tow bar, our ball mount or bike rack, whatever else it is, put the cap on, quarter turn the other way. As you can see it's nice and secure and we're ready to attach our vehicle to the back of our RV, we're ready to attach our trailer to our ball mount, or load up our cargo carrier and head down the road. Now that we've taken a good look at them and we've seen how they're going to work and how they're made, that will complete today's look at the Blue Ox Series of Receiver Locks. .

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

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Ask the Experts about this Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Lock

  • 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.

  • 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 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

    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...

  • Recommended 2-Inch Hitch Lock for Use with Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System EQ37100ET
    The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET fits 2-inch hitches so you can use one of the 2-inch hitch locks shown on the linked page. The etrailer.com # e98880 is a flush design that keeps the center span of the pin inside the receiver - making it tougher for a would-be thief to get to. Part # e98881 is a extra-long type that fits both 2-inch and 2-1/2-inch hitches. For maximum security I suggest a tubular key lock such as the Blue Ox # BX8858 which is harder to pick than...

This information is important in helping us determine the correct weight distribution system for your needs. Weight distribution is based on total tongue weight which is your completely loaded and ready to go camping tongue weight along with any cargo behind the rear axle of your F-150.

  • 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.
