Video Transcript for Heininger Holdings Hitch Locks - Rack Specific Anti-Rattle Lock - HE6001 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number HE6001. This is the HitchMate threaded trailer hitch receiver lock for 2 inch hitches. The threaded hitch lock works as an anti-rattle lock for the Advantage Sportsrack glide away bike rack, part number 2200 and 2250 and also the HitchMate RotoHitch hitch extender, part number HE5990. The key cover here on the lock is going to help keep out dirt and moisture from the internal elements of the lock. Two keys are included. This is designed to fit a 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. Our pin diameter is 5/8 inch.

To go over some of the measurements we have an overall length of 5 7 /8 inch. The distance between the lock and the head of our bolt measures 3 1/4 inches. The threaded portion measures about 2 inches. We'll go ahead and remove the lock from our bolt. The unthreaded portion also measures about 2 inches. Once you have your accessory, your bike rack or hitch extender, into the receiver tube of your hitch, you can insert the anti-rattle bolt, thread it into position and place the lock on the other side.

It's just going to snap on and lock itself. Then you can remove the key, close the lock cover and you're ready to go. With this you have the anti-rattle bolt, the lock, two keys and a lock washer. That's going to complete today's review of part number HE6001. That's the HitchMate threaded trailer hitch receiver lock for 2 inch hitches. .

Got this hitch to replace the one that I ordered wrong the first time James A at etrailer was very helpful. The lock fit good to the hitch but still got a little free play even after I tighten down perhaps my trailer hitch is old. I have not try to carry my bikes on it yet so I cannot comment on that. Shipping was pretty good although the package box was little flimsy and not much of package padding inside but I did received the item without any damage to it. I deducted a star because of high cost of return shipping charge using the return label the cost is more than half of the amount that I pay for the item that I ordered the first time. 438470

I bought a Yakima two-bike hitch-mount rack second hand and needed to find a threaded, locking pin. etrailer filled the bill, as they had done with a previous purchase a while ago. I'm very happy with the fit and finish of the product, and with the informative, customer-focused service etrailer provides. 696806

Bought to replace a 5/8" diameter threaded hitch pin and lock for a 2" hitch. Lock seemed solid, but the bolt shaft narrows to 1/2" immediately after the threads, making it weaker compared to similar products. The use-able distance from bottom of the bolt head to the barrel of the lock barely clears my 2" Toyota hitch. I am returning it to try the Swagman instead. If you need the pin to narrow down to 1/2" quickly, this product may be exactly what you are looking for. 414171

I purchased this accessory to compliment the 2" anti-wobble hitch extension. I needed a way to lock my Kuat bike rack to my Jeep while moving it back away from the vehicle more than 4 inches. Both products work perfectly in every way to accomplish what I needed. 234923

The 4 bike rack I received from etrailer is solid . It is I’m not to mechanical, but this rack was easy and fast to put together. The rack is easy to place and secure bikes. The tilt for hatchback access was perfect. Tanith recommended the Reese explore 4 hitch bike rack #63124 and bought lock for rack also. A good recommendation , that is working well. Thanks tanith and etrailer. 802942

Lock and pin appear solid and well made. The dust cap on the keyway is snug and should hold up well. This was an economical choice for the replacement of a Thule pin lock that fell off due to user error (mine.) 567228

Ask the Experts about this Heininger Holdings Trailer Hitch Lock

  • Hitch Pin Recommendation for Older Thule Swing Away Bike Rack
    For a locking hitch pin to fit the Thule Swingaway bike rack you sent in a picture of the part # THSTL2 would the pin to use. For just the pin portion you'd want the part # 853-5917. Looks like that rack is installed in a RV hitch. You should note that Thule does not rate their bike racks for use at the rear of an RV due to the much rougher ride quality. I know that's not what you asked about but it's important that you know that.

  • Locking Hitch Pin for Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Rack
    There is a solution for you, but the HitchMate Threaded Lock # HE6001 will not work with your Kuat Transfer 2 # TS02G. You'd want the Cable Locks and Hitch Lock for Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Rack # PTSCLK12, which includes a hitch lock that attaches to your existing threaded hitch pin. The kit also includes a pair of cable locks to secure your bikes. I've added a link to a video review of this lock set for you to check out as well.

  • Locking Hitch Pin for the Reese Explorer 4 Bike Rack
    The correct locking hitch in for the Reese Explorer 4 Bike rack part # 63124 is the HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches part # HE6001. This will take all of the play out of the rack and allow you to lock it to your vehicle.

  • Lock Recommendation for Additional Security with the RockyMounts MonoRail Bike Rack
    The best lock recommendation we'll be able to make for your RockyMounts MonoRail 2 Bike Platform Rack # RKY10004 is going to be using the lock that comes with the rack plus a cable lock like the # e98891 which you can route through the safety chain loops of the hitch and through the wheels of the bike. This will give you an added layer of theft protection for the rack plus your bikes. The hitch pin lock you mentioned would not work with the hitch pin of the RockyMounts bike rack.

  • Replacement Hitch Pin for Reese Explore 63124 Bike Rack
    Oddly enough, Reese doesn't offer that hitch pin as a separate item. However, we do offer a locking hitch pin that will work, the HitchMate locking hitch pin part # HE6001. One of our installer discovered that it fit purely by accident and even though the hitch pins are usually proprietary, in this instance one manufacturer's lock worked in another's bike rack.

  • Locks for Kuat Transfer 3 Hitch Bike Rack
    The Kuat Transfer 3 hitch-mount platform bike racks # TS03G, # TS03G-FB and # TS03B-FB all use the same Kuat hitch and 3 cable lock kit # PTSCLK13. We do have the lock kit for the Transfer 2 racks, part # PTSCLK12, to which you could add another cable lock such as # e98891. The Heininger Holdings Hitch Lock # HE6001 is a proprietary type that only fits certain models of their bike racks.

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for Hollywood Racks Bike Rack
    We have an anti-rattle hitch lock designed specifically as a fit for Hollywood Rack bike racks. For that you'd want the Hollywood Racks Threaded Hitch Lock # HRLHPT. The HitchMate hitch lock part # HE6001 that you referenced is designed for a different brand of bike rack and would not fit. The lock on the # HRLHPT would be easier to access though since it's perpendicular to the bolt instead. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Hitch Pin Lock Recommendation for Thule Bike Rack with Threaded Hitch Pin
    The threads of the HitchMate part # HE6001 are too large to fit a Thule bike rack. So what you'd need is the part # THSTL2 which is basically the same thing but designed for Thule bike rack applications.

  • Solution for Threaded Hitch Pin that Won't Thread into Bike Rack
    The anti-rattle device part # HE6001 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your Advantage SportsRack glideAWAY Bike Rack. Most likely what is happening is that the threads of your bike rack are dirty or rusty and need to be cleaned out so that the bolt will thread into it. I attached a help article that details how to do this in a similar situation for you to check out. If the rack's original anti-rattle bolt still will thread into the rack then you will want to compare...

  • Will HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Fit a Thule T2 Bike Rack
    Thule uses a propriety bolt pattern on their products. So the Hitchmate threaded trailer hitch receiver lock # HE6001 will not be compatible with the Thule T2 # TH916XTR-918XTR. However we do offer a Thule Snug Tite hitch lock and anti-rattle device that may work for you. The Thule Snug Tite hitch lock and anti-rattle device part # THSTL2 is a replacement lock system that is compatible with your 2 inch receiver hitch. I have included a video demonstrating the assembly of this Thule...

  • Hitch Pin Lock for an XPort 2 Bike Rack
    I have a solution for you, however part # SR0901 is designed to fit the threading of a SportRack bike rack, and likely won't work with your XPort 2. We've found in the past that later versions of the XPort, the Q-Slot, work well with Saris' hitch pin locking set, part # SA3022. You can get a cable lock add on for this set as part # SA984 if you'd like to fully upgrade your rack's security. This isn't a guaranteed fit, however we've had reports that it may work.

  • Is the HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Compatibile with Yakima Hold Up Bike Rack
    The HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # HE6001 is not a confirmed fit for the Yakima Hold Up # Y02443. You will need the Yakima HitchLock for Yakima Hitch Mounted Bike Racks - Same Key System (SKS) # Y07235 to fit that system. Each manufacturer has a slightly different lock so they are not interchangable.

  • Locking Hitch Pin Recommendation for Yakima DoubleDown Bike Rack
    If you had the version of the Yakima DoubleDown part # Y02424 that used a threaded hitch pin the lock kit you'd want is the # Y07235 which would use the hitch pin the rack already has. If you wanted an option to lock the rack as well as bikes to the rack you'd want the part # Y07238.

    I do have a solution for you, however because of the unique thread design on the shank for your Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack # SA4412B, the HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # HE6001 that you referenced will not be compatible. For a threaded, anti-rattle hitch lock that will work with this bike rack, I instead recommend the Saris Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock # SA3022.

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for Use with a SportRack Ridge Swing 4 Bike Rack # SR2415
    The threaded hitch lock you would want to use with the SportRack Ridge Swing 4 Bike Rack # SR2415 is the part # SR0901. The part # HE6001 that you referenced is designed for Heininger racks so I can't recommend it for you. This will replace your current hitch pin bolt with one that has a lock at the end of it.

    I may have a solution for you, however the HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver # HE6001 is not compatible with your Rola TX-102 2-Bike Rack # 59400. This is because the shank on the Rola rack features a uniquely threaded hitch pin hole that will only work with the included threaded bolt. At this time Rola does not have a threaded hitch lock available that will work. To lock the bike rack to your vehicle, I recommend using a standard cable lock like the etrailer.com # e98891. You...

    The threaded portion that fits in the shank of the Thule Apex bike rack is typically not compatible with threaded locking pins from other manufacturers. We've received a few reports here and there stating that they will fit, but since Thule won't confirm this we cannot guarantee fit. It's safest to use the lock that was specifically designed for the rack, the # THSTL2. One really nice feature of the Thule lock, it can be re keyed to match the locks on other Thule accessories, if you...

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for Sportrack Bike Rack

    The HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # HE6001 has a 5/8" pin diameter and is designed for certain SportRack bike racks so it will not work for you. Hitch pin locks are designed for specific bike racks so if that's what you need it for, let me know what rack you have I can see if there is a lock that will work for you. Otherwise, if you have a 1/2 inch diameter hitch pin that likely means you have a 1-1/4 inch receiver and we do have hitch locks with 1/2 inch...

  • Recommended Threaded Hitch Pin Lock For SportsRack Bike Carrier
    For your SportsRack Bike Carrier and hitch receiver, I recommend the HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # HE6001.

These measurements can be found in the attached video.

  • Threaded Hitch Pin Lock for Swagman XC2 Bike Rack
    I do have exactly what you need, however, the # HE6001 will not work because hitch bike rack locks are brand specific. For your Swagman XC2 bike rack # S64650 (for 1-1/4" and 2" Trailer Hitches) you need the Locking Anti-Rattle, Threaded Hitch Pin for Swagman Hitch Racks part # S64029. To secure your rack to the hitch as well as the bikes to the rack you can use the hitch and cable lock combo instead, that is part # S64031.

  • Tip for Removing Last Bit Of Movement from Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack in Hitch Tube
    We can only recommend Yakima hitch pin locks for their bike racks. The HitchMate # HE6001 would not fit anyway as the threads are much wider. Are you still getting movement with your Holdup # Y02443? One tip that works for a lot of people is to tighten the hitch pin with one and use your other hand to move the rack around as you do so. This typically gets the last bit of movement out of the rack.

  • Will The Heininger HitchMate Receiver Lock Work on a Yakima Hold Up Rack

Replacement Hitch Bolt and Clip for Yakima HoldUp # Y8890200 with the Yakima HitchLock # Y07235 will do what you want and is confirmed to fit the Yakima Hold Up Rack # Y02443. I have included video overviews for both of these products for more information.

    For a hitch lock for use with the MaxxTow ball mount # MT70270 the best solution is a hitch lock like the part # 5201 which will fit and work well. The part # HE6001 is designed for racks with threaded pin holes which the ball mount does not have.

  • Can Different Brand Hitch Lock Be Used with Thule Roadway Bike Rack
    Thule, along with most other bike rack manufacturers, use unique threads in the shank's hitch pin hole that are designed to only be used with their own hitch pins/locks. Because of this the HitchMate # HE6001 you referenced won't be compatible. For your Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack # TH912XTR the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock # THSTL2 will fit and work perfectly.
