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. .

Perfect drop in for my yakima hold up hitch rack

still working great
Gustavo - 06/14/2022


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.

The pin has proved serviceable and durable.
Michael - 09/02/2020


It seems that the lock doesn’t fit my bike rake. I never used it.

Based off you order information, it looks like you got this lock to go with part # RRRBC045
Rhino-Rack 2 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Tilting
. Manufacturers use specific locks for specific products and we do not carry a compatible, same brand lock at this time. A good option to get instead would be part # e98891
etrailer Cable Lock - 10' Long - 5/16" Diameter - Steel - Keyed Alike
and wrap it around the bike rack and the safety chain loops on the hitch.
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 10/12/2021


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.

Thanks for the follow up. I just wanted to let you know that this hitch pin is intended to be used for the Advantage SportsRack glideAWAY bike rack 2200, 2250 and HitchMate RotoHitch hitch extender HE5990.
-- Etrailer Expert Rachael H - 08/09/2017


Needed just a few more inches so my bike rack would clear the spare tire on my Jeep JKU and this does the trick perfectly. Bought the locking bolt/pin as an attempt to slow down theft of the rack. Thinking a thief would have to come equipped to not only break the lock off (wouldn’t be too difficult) but also with the right sized metric socket wrench to remove the bolt. I’m very pleased with how firmly the bolt/pin holds the extension as does the bolt pin on my Yakima rack making the whole system very solid. I’ll still run some straps to my roof rack from the bike rack to reduced the inevitable lateral motion as I’ve done with other bike racks.


I owned one of these before, and this one was the same as before, does exactly what it says, is reasonably priced, and arrived promptly.


A handsome and durable lock that fit perfectly on my rattle proof cargo rack. Would recommend.


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.


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.)


I have a 2” Yakima rack and the thread on the bolt was worn. Purchased this replacement bolt and is works however the diameter where there is no thread is much smaller than original. This causes rack to wobble because the hole in the hitch is larger and the smaller diameter bolt doesn’t fit close. Added a U bolt that fits over the 2” rack to tighten rack to hitch.


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.


Called wanting a trailer hitch locking pin for my new bike rack Ashley called manufacture of bike rack making certain the part was correct, I call that great service


Product was a perfect fit for a lock hitch bolt threaded needed for my ReeseBike Rack. Which Reese supplied a lock bolt. But, this was a great match, hopefully it lasts a long time..


Works perfectly on my old sportworks rack. Thank to the other reviewer for mentioning it worked on his. There was a gap between the lock and the hitch. I bought ten fender washers to fill the gap. For the price, it was an excellent purchase from eTrailer.


Shipped same day! Heavy duty hitch and bike rack and installed in one hour!


Exactly as advertised and a fraction of the cost of the bicycle rack manufacturers same style locking pin! Second time I have ordered from etrailer and the products are exactly as advertised. Fast shipping and excellent support if needed. Check out their YouTube channel for step by step instructions if needed.


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.


E trailer customer service was excellent from initial discussion to delivery and then follow up. Helen's assistance with this process was excellent. The product works perfect. I was happy with the whole experience. Many thanks.


locks as expected


Very nice, quality rack. Holds mountain bikes firmly. Accepts my E-Bikes (with bike adapater bar-Swagman).


Works great! Easy to a hook up and it totally secures the hitch to the carrier so there’s no vibration.


I like the locking pin, it is strong, and easy to use.


Lock works smooth, and fits great. Great price. Love using etrailer.


It doesn't fit my bike rack coz my bike rack use smaller pin but I will keep it


Just what I ordered,received it quickly also.
Have ordered from etrailer a couple of times now and will continue..

  • Locking Hitch Pin for the Reese Explorer 4 Bike Rack
    The correct locking hitch in for the DISCONTINUED Reese Explorer 4 Bike rack 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.

  • 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. This threaded locking hitch pin has an overall length of 5-7/8 inches. The distance betwwen the lock and the head of the bolt is 3-1/4 inches. The threaded portion is about 2 inches. These measurements can be found in the attached video.

  • 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...

  • What Locking Hitch Pin Fits the 22x59 Rola Cargo Carrier?
    For a great locking hitch pin for the 22x59 Rola Cargo Tray # 59502, I recommend the HitchMate # HE6001. This hitch pin fits the threading that comes on the shank of the Rola Cargo Tray.

  • What Locking Hitch Pin Fits a Rola Cargo Carrier # 59502?
    Since the Rola Cargo Carrier 59502 includes a 5/8"-11 hitch pin, I confirmed with my tech at Rola that the only confirmed locking hitch pin that is compatible is the HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # HE6001. Since Rola does not make a hitch pin for the carrier, the HitchMate is the lock they recommend.

  • Hitch Extender for Use With a Pop-Up Trailer With a 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    Since it sounds like you don't need too much of an extension I recommend that you go with the shortest extension that we currently offer which is 11 inches long # HE6000. There is already a lot of play at the rear of a trailer due to the axle location. Adding an extender to the mix will only increase the amount of play that you will experience, so you will need to make sure that whatever you have on that rack can take a beating. You will also want to make sure that whatever accessory that...

  • 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 Extension and Locking Pin for a 2003 Honda CR-V with Spare Tire
    You'll have two options, depending on your hitch size. In either case, your overall tongue weight capacity will be reduced by 50% when the extender is installed, so you'll want to verify your hitch's capacity prior to purchase and ensure that you can still install your chosen rack and actually carry bikes on it. If your hitch is the smaller 1-1/4 inch size, you'll want to purchase Brophy's 6 inch 1-1/4 inch extender, part # HES6 in order to extend your hitch. This extender pushes the...

  • Recommendations For Locking 22x59 Rola Cargo Carrier 59502 To Trailer Hitch Receiver
    We have just what you are looking for! While the # 63232 you mentioned will not work with the 22x59 Rola Cargo Carrier # 59502, the HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # HE6001 will fit and work perfectly. This hitch pin will keep the carrier locked and keep it from rattling on either the 2" receiver of your 2020 GMC Yukon SLT or your 2007 GMC Sierra SLE.

  • Locking Hitch Pin for Thule Apex TH9024 Bike Rack
    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 have...

  • Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin/Lock For Rambo R184 Bike Rack
    I compared the dimensions of the pin you provided, and we don't sell a lock housing individually that would work with it. Your best bet would be to buy a locking pin/lock housing combo like # HE6001. I've provided a diagram of the pin dimensions for the # HE6001, they appear pretty close to your pin. If your pin has a 12 thread pitch (12 threads per inch) this lock/pin should work for you. I've linked to a product demonstration video for the # HE6001.

    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 Snug...

    Sounds like you are looking for a hitch lock for your Sportrack Bike Rack that uses a threaded hitch pin. We actually have exactly what you are looking for. For that you would want the part # SR0901 which is a threaded pin and lock confirmed to fit Sportrack bike racks.

  • Hitch Pin Lock Recommendation for Thule Bike Rack with Threaded Hitch Pin

  • Will the HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches HE6001 Fit a Thule Vertex
    HitchMate Threaded Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches Item # HE6001 is only tested and confirmed for Heininger bike racks. Some reported that it will work on a Thule rack but I can't guarantee it. For the Thule Vertex a lock that will work for sure is the Snug-Tite lock # THSTL2.

  • 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. 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.

  • Available Anti-Rattle Hitch Locks for a Thule Parkway

  • 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.

  • Is There a Threaded Hitch Bolt Lock Compatible with Rola Carrier?
    The Rola Carrier uses a threaded anti-rattle bolt that is 5/8 inch and 11 threads per inch. The Swagman # S64027 and the HitchMate # HE6001 unfortunately will not fit. You will either need to use a different lock like a cable lock or drill out the threads and use an alternative method like the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - 2-5/8" Span # 63232.

  • Can I Use a Hitch Extender With Thule Helium 2 on 2018 Lexus RX 350?
    Using a hitch extender like # HE6000 will cut your hitch's weight capacity in half which is why we usually don't recommend it. One of our hitches that fits your vehicle is the Draw-Tite Hitch # 75540 and it has a 675 lbs tongue weight. If you use it with a hitch extender, your remaining tongue weight capacity is about 335 lbs. The Thule Helium 2 Bike Platform Rack # TH44VR weighs 43 lbs and has a capacity of 37.5 lbs per bike. 43 lbs plus 70 lbs equals 113lbs which is within your new weight...

I test fitted the etrailer 24x62 Folding Cargo Carrier # e98872 the other day on a 2020 Toyota Tundra with a factory hitch and found that I couldn't install it due to how the new Tundra has a reinforced hitch that is a bit thicker than your average hitch.

  • 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.

  • 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.
