Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Extra Long Hitch Receiver Lock Review

What's up everybody. It's AJ with Today we're checking out this locking hitch pin from Jaw Tight. Now this one is an extended one so it's a little bit longer to fit two and a half and three inch hitches. Let's check it out. You put the key in. You should turn it until the lock mechanism pops out.

Then you can separate the pin from the lock. I put the pin through our hitch and ball mount, may need to shake the ball mount a little bit just to get it through there. We'll put our lock on the other side. With the lock mechanism popped out. You can see it's farther back in there so, you know, you can just put this on there, pushing a lot and it's in place.

Looking closer at the lock. It has a smooth finish, and there's not really a grip on it but it's all right, because the lock is big enough easy to grab onto and pull off when you go to unlock it. Nice and easy to grab onto versus your standard hitch pin and clip which are a little bit smaller and harder to get in there and pull that pin out. You're going to hit your hand on the bumper or your ball mount or something like that. Or they get rusty over time and they get even harder to pull out.

This one's nice and easy. To help protect your lock from the elements. It does come with a rubber cap that you can put on there. Now, it's not attached. So you don't have to remember where this is when you have it, but at least it comes with it.

You may notice a little bit of back and forth or just a little bit of gap between the lock and the heads but that's okay because it's meant for a two and a half inch hitch and a three inch hitch. So when you do it on three inch hitch there's gonna be less of a gap, but there's not enough space for anybody getting there and do anything. It's going to be a great help to turn and keep your ball mount protected. So overall it gets the job done. It'll definitely lock our ball mount into our hitch. There's a few things that I'm not a huge fan of, the cap not being attached is kind of annoying. Cause I'm afraid I'm going to lose it. Or just going to fall off. The lock mechanism is a little iffy. You turn it. Sometimes it pops up. Sometimes it doesn't, you know, I'll turn it left or right. It looks like it's popping out now. So that part it's just iffy and then the whole lock rotates. So if it's not up against the hitch exactly, you're going to turn the lock when you're trying to get that mechanism, you're going to kind of have to hold onto that, turn it to get it to pop out. I think there's just some better hitch locks out there that have the attached dust cover and a better lock mechanism that we offer that you could probably check out. But that's going to do it for a look at the Jaw Tight hitch pin lock. Hope this helped..

Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design - BD580412

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (173 Customer Reviews)

This solid, high-strength steel, flush-style hitch lock lets you secure your ball mount, bike rack, cargo carrier or other accessory to your trailer hitch receiver 2-1/2" and larger. 5/8" Pin diameter.


My new B&W drawbar and ball assembly arrived today for my 2020 F250 Super Duty. It is a perfect complement to a great truck. The receiver lock completes the package.

See the attached before and after picture.


Just received the hitch lock. Fit perfectly and excited to have something that keeps my expensive hitch secured.


I find this lock Does a good job securing my hitch however it is difficult to engage with the key. Could be more user-friendly.

William C.


I have stopped using this product. Too hard to lock. Not a fan.

Etrailer Expert

Katrina B.


Can you please elaborate on what you mean by it being too hard to lock?


Had this a year and many towing miles now. It's as good as the day I got it - lock still works perfectly. My F250 has a 3" receiver which has a 2 1/2" adapter, which, in turn, has a 2" adapter - pulling an 8,000lb trailer. This adapter setup has bent all of the "cheap" hitch locks I've tried, but this one is solid.



Still going strong and still straight.


Kind of does what it says, but the lock portion falls out of the outer tube when unlocked as it's missing a retaining screw to keep the lock in. I've since learned there are keyed-alike locking pins by weigh safe so will try to get one of those. Returning is more work than keeping and paying attention when unlocking but this rating suffered.


Totally satisfied with my purchase!


Used this ONCE on a trip this summer. Came home and found the locking end fell right off into my hand. The ball detents had collapsed and were not secure in the slightest. Had the pin backed out, it would have been a very bad day for my family and anyone behind us on the road. I cannot believe these are not quality controlled better with the massive liability that comes along with such a critical component. This thing is JUNK. Stay away from this part.


Arrived broken. Could not get lock to latch over pin. Requested replacement.


As advertised. I have a 3" receiver and needed a locking pin that would work on that 3" receiver. It worked with about a half an inch to spare. Easy to unlock if the hitch needs to be removed.


Perfect fit for the stock 3” receiver on my Ford F-350. I made the mistake of leaving the locking pin in the receiver over our Canadian winter and I thought it would be rusted shut but it still works like new. Great product and quick advice and delivery from etrailer!

Jay B.


Still working great a year later. Perfect for the 3 receiver on my F350.


I was having trouble finding a hitch pin long enough to fit my class 5 receiver on my 2011 Silverado. This one fit the bill perfectly. Etrailer support was very helpful and shipping was quick thank you very much



Works as expected


Plenty long enough for a 3" receiver hitch. Seems to work fine. I've only taken it out a couple times in the past year.


This product does what it's designed too, that's why I gave it three stars. However, it did not fit my works better on narrower ball mounts. I have a B&W tow and stow three ball mount and need a hitch receiver lock that's about 1/2" to 1" longer to fit it.


Worked great but weigh safe had thier own keyed alike looking pin to match their flip over ball


I finally found a locking pin long enough to go through my hitch. I have a 2” sleeve inside a 2.5” sleeve inside a 3” receiver. The OD is too big for most locking pins.

This was my only choice I could find so I would have been happy with just about anything that fit. This way exceeded my expectations. The locking mechanism is super smooth and it has a rubber o-ring that keeps dirt and debris out of places it shouldn’t be.


Lock is sloppy and loose. Makes me wonder if it will stay on. O'ring inside is all messed up after a few uses, and makes it very hard to take off.


I received the Draw-Tite Hitch receiver Lock-extra long flush design #BD580412 in a very timely fashion. I ordered it because your web site stated it had a 4 inch span and I wanted to lock my Roadmaster #050 Roll-away to my trailer hitch. When I received it I read the Manufacturers packaging and it said it had a 3 1/2 inch span.I was fuming but I decided to cut it out of it's packaging, put it together and then measure the span.To my relief the span is actually 4 inches not 3 1/2. Please pass that on to the manufacturer. The product seems very well built.


I kept finding this hitch lock unlocked so I tried locking and pulling/twisting snd it pops open every time within 3 seconds. It seems the hiway was putting enough vibration to the lock to pop the locking mechanism up. I have 4 of these two extra long for 2.5 receiver and two for 2”


The hitch lock seems durable; however, time will tell how it holds up. The process in purchasing it was effortless, but the shipping took longer than expected based on other reviews of items that had super fast shipping from This was purchased for my 2017 F250, which has the heavy duty (wider) receiver. It is plenty long enough to fit the new receivers.


I bought this B&W hitch to be a exact fit for my truck. This is the second B&W that I have purchased. Both have been well built. Best adjustable hitches that I have ever owned. Very Happy With them
etrailer had the best price of anyone locally. Ordered Saturday, I received an Email Sunday that my order was Processed, and that it was ready for shipping. It arrived four days later. Thank You Will order from you again.


The Bulldog Extra Long Hitch receiver lock was just the length I needed for my 2017 Ford F350. It is a quality receiver lock and suits my needs perfectly. I highly recomend this lock for those of you that need more clearance than the 3 5/8ths locks that are on the market. My compliments to for carrying this product and their super fast shipping.


Worked even better once lubricated.


Needed a locking pin for my 3" hitch. Couldn't locate one anywhere.
A person told me about etrailer, went to web site, there it was. Ordering was very easy.
With standard shipping, was at my home in 4 days. Fits perfect!

Thanks, Randy


Got for my f350 DRW with BW Tow and Stow hitch, which I wanted a deterrent for to be stolen. Many others I had seen were too short and lock would barely secure on the pin. This one is perfect, great fit and well made. Highly recommend.


This is a well made lock and fits my 3" receiver unlike a lot of other locks of this design which are too short for the bigger receiver.

See what our Experts say about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Lock

  • Does Bulldog Hitch Receiver Lock # BD580412 Have Weight Capacity
    Hitch pins and hitch pin locks like the part # BD580412 that you referenced don't actually bear any weight when used with a ball mount so they don't have weight capacities. The downward force of the tongue weight of the trailer is so great that the ball mount is pinned into the hitch so hard that none of the weight is put on the hitch pin. This pin lock will work great with your 3 inch hitch on your Ford truck.

  • Recommended Hitch Pin Lock for a 2019 Ford F-350
    I like the Bulldog Hitch Receiver Lock part # BD580412 for a 2019 Ford F-350 because the dust cap is a bit more protective than most other options.

  • Is Extra Long Draw-Tite Receiver Lock Made Of Stainless Steel
    Yes, the Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver Lock part # BD580412 is in fact stainless steel. It also has an extra long 3-1/2" usable span for 2-1/2" and 3" hitch receivers like those found on newer Ford trucks.

  • Does Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver Lock Have a Weight Capacity
    Hitch receiver locks such as the Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design # BD580412 don't actually have a specific weight capacity so they can be used for whatever capacity your other equipment is rated for. The reason for this is because the lock is positioned inside the hitch, which means the downward force of the tongue weight isn't on the lock, it is on the ball mount, hitch ball, receiver and coupler. This is why no trailer hitch locks or trailer hitch pins are rated...

  • Is The Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver Lock BD580412 Actually Secure
    The end of the pin of the Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver Lock part # BD580412 that has the black cover holds the locking mechanism. It would be possible for a thief to drill put the lock if they wanted to. The lock is a theft deterrent but not theft proof. We have not had any customer complaints about it breaking over time. If the tension ball is what bothers you about the design, I recommend to use Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # e98881 which is considered a bit more secure...

  • Recommended Hitch Receiver Lock That Can Be Keyed Alike
    I have another option but unfortunately the Draw-Tite Hitch Receiver Lock # BD580412 cannot be ordered keyed alike. I recommend the etrailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches # e98881 which can be keyed alike by selecting the keyed alike drop down and changing the quantity to the number of locks you need which in your case would be 25. I included a video of the etrailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98881 for you to take a look at.

  • Best Locking Hitch Pin for a 3 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    Yes, the Bulldog Hitch Receiver Lock part # BD580412 is a locking hitch pin that will fit the 3" trailer hitch receiver on your 2017 Ford F-350. This hitch pin has a dual self-locking design with a flush look. It is constructed of stainless steel and is 5/8" in diameter. The included dust cap will help keep the lock core free of dirt and debris. This is currently the only locking hitch pin we offer that will fit a 3" trailer hitch receiver for the exception of the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver...

  • Trailer Hitch Lock that Fits a 3 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The pin length on BOLT lock # BL7023585 won't be long enough for a 3 inch trailer hitch. Right now they do not make one that will be long enough but who knows what the future holds. If the 3 inch hitches take off in popularity then we might see some accessories like BOLT locks made for them.

  • Comparing the Bulldog Hitch Receiver Locking Pin to the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock
    If your 2017 Ford F-250, whether you have the 3 inch receiver or the 2-1/2 inch, the two options you gave of the Bulldog Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # BD580412 and the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock for 2, 2-1/2, and 3inch Hitches - 3-1/2inch Span # WS05 are both great options. The usable length of the Bulldog lock is 3-1/2 inches so it will work with a 3 inch receiver as well as the 2-1/2 listed in the description. I like the look of the...

  • Recommended Hitch Lock for 3 Inch Factory Trailer Hitch on Ford Truck
    For the factory 3 inch trailer hitch on your 2018 Ford truck I recommend taking a look at the Draw-Tite Trailer HItch Lock # BD580412. This is the longest hitch lock we have available and it is designed to fit 3 inch hitches like what you have. It features a usable length of 3-1/2 inches. I do recommend measuring the outside width of your hitch receiver just to make sure this will be long enough. This lock features a heavy duty steel construction and a nickel finish to help resist corrosion....

  • What Length of Hitch Pin Lock for Holding Attachment into Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount
    The pins that hold the ball mount attachment into the vertical openings of the # 325-GH-315 have a span of 3-1/2 inches and a diameter of 5/8 inch so for a hitch lock that would work with this you'd want the Draw Tite part # BD580412.

  • What 2-5/16 Inch Ball will Fit the 1-1/4 Inch Hole Diameter of the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 40702?
    For 2-5/16 inch a ball that fits the 1-1/4 inch ball hole diameter of the Draw-Tite Ball Mount # 40702, I recommend the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 1-1/4" Diameter x 2-5/8" Long Shank # C40085. Since this ball has a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank, it is compatible with the # 40702. If you happen to need a hitch pin with the ball mount, the # BD580412 not only provides a snug fit, but it also has a lock for theft-deterrence.

  • Recommended Hitch Reducer and Lock for Thule Bike Rack
    Starting with the hitch adapter for the 2 inch hitch receiver on your vehicle, I actually recommend going with the Brophy Hitch Reducer # HT02 instead of the Tow Ready # 80300 that you referenced. The reason for this is that the Tow Ready adapter, when in use, is going to reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50%. Depending on the weight of your bike rack and bikes, this option may result in you overloading the capacity of the trailer hitch. For example, if the hitch...

  • Recommended Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount For 2-1/2 Inch Hitch With 9 Inch Rise/Drop
    To answer your question about the optimal ride tongue weight, our ranges are referring to use with the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball while the Gen-Y website does not differentiate, hence the slight difference in ranges. That said, since you mentioned your tongue weight could be in the 1,800 lb range, I recommend going with the higher rated ball mount: - Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers - 2-1/2" Hitch - 9" Drop/Rise - 21K # 325-GH-1325 Keep in mind, this is assuming you are using...

    The Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers for 3" Hitch - 6" Drop/Rise - 32K # 325-GH-1723 is a great option for your 2019 Ford F-250 with 3 inch receiver. This ball mount will use 2-1/2 inch receivers, so the Bulldog Hitch Receiver Lock # BD580412 will work.

  • Recommended Hitch Pin for Chevrolet Bowtie Hitch Cover

  • Recommended Locking Hitch Pin To Use With Lets Go Aero Slide-Out Cargo Carrier
    The Lets Go Aero Slide-Out Cargo Carrier # H01472 does have two hitch pin holes. The first hole has been added if you need additional clearance when the cargo carrier is being used. The second hitch pin hole is the recommended one to use but if you need the clearance, the first pin hole will work as well. The locking hitch pin I recommend is the etrailer lock # e98882. This is a stainless steel hitch lock, and it has a covered key slot to prevent corrosion. If you happen to have a...

  • Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock & Hitch Cover for Reese 2-Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The diameter hitch pin for a 2-inch hitch is 5/8-inch, very close to your 9/16-inch dimension. In this size we offer a plain pin/clip # PC3, locks such as # BD580412 and anti-rattle locks such as # 63232. This anti-rattle lock works in any hollow-shank ball mount or accessory carrier to both steady it and help protect it from theft. I linked our main pages for 2-inch hitch covers, including plain rubber covers like # 22282 and # I-728 as well as themed covers.
