Video Transcript for Review of Kuat Trailer Hitch Lock - Hitch Lock With Keys For Kuat Bike Rack - HL1

Hi, everybody. Andy here with And today, we're gonna take a look at this hitch lock for the Kuat bike racks. Now, this hitch lock is going to secure your Kuat bike rack to your 1 1/4 inch hitch. It's going to work with all of the NV 2.0, NV 2.0 Base, and the Sherpa 2.0 bike racks. And this lock and pin features a protective finish to keep the components safe from rust and corrosion.

And on the lock body itself, we have this dust cap that's going to keep dirt and moisture out of the lock body so that just pops right off. And then it also comes with this burlap bag that you're gonna be able to use to store your lock and your keys, and your key chain here as well that's also included that we'll talk about in just the next minute. And speaking of keys, this does come with two keys. So, to unlock the unit, you're just going to simply stick one of the keys into the lock. Both of the keys are keyed alike.

And then you just gonna rotate it about a quarter of a turn there. And so, this is going to come right out. So, what's nice about this is you don't need the key in the lock to put the pin back in, to lock the pin back into the lock body. So, you just simply push that through, it's going to click and then your pin is going to be secure. And then you'll just want to replace your cap back on the lock body and you're going to be good to go.

Now, the pin diameter is 3/8 of an inch. And let me pull out my ruler here just to give you some additional measurements here. So, looking at the overall length of the lock body and the pin, we're almost at seven inches. Technically, I guess we're sitting right at about 6 7/8 inches. And then the span or the usable length of this pin, and I'm gonna be measuring from the lock body all the way to the bend here, we're gonna be sitting pretty close to four inches, it looks like, of usable pin length.

Now, this does have a limited lifetime warranty. And again, with these two keys, you're going to get this key chain with this pretty nice bottle opener, which you can always have on hand to enjoy a refreshing beverage after your bike ride. And then this burlap sack is going to hold everything together, keep it all in one place until you need it again. Now again, this is going to be for your 1 1/4 inch hitch. If you have a two-inch hitch and you're looking for a hitch lock for your two-inch hitch, we do carry the two-inch hitch version of this hitch lock. Just take that item number that you see there on your screen and put it in the search field of our website and it will take you to that two-inch hitch version. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike Racks - 1-1/4" Hitches - HL1

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (23 Customer Reviews)

This hitch lock fits the smaller pin hole on Kuat bike racks for 1-1/4" hitches. 2 Keys, dust cap, burlap bag, and Kuat keychain bottle opener included. 3/8" Diameter.


Look, if they want it bad enough, they'll get it. However this lock, along with the mechanical device built into the kuat rack to tighten it in the hitch by use of a unique wrench, it just got a lot more difficult for them. It looks good and the lock mechanism looks robust for it's size. It's not as thick as your hitch pin for your full sized trailer you tow, but it's sufficient enough to provide another layer of protection for the bike rack.


This locking hutch pin works perfect. Not the problems with that you have with others. However, I have to have 2 locking pins for this Kuat hitch for the Venza. That is over $50. The hitch requires smaller pin than receiver takes for receiver cover to lock it on. That is due to this single side transfer bike rack adapting. This needs to be resolved, so customers do not have $75 -$100 in rack, and receiver covers for this rack.


1 year later, we are very pleased with this purchase. I couldn’t find a hitch this small at any stores near me and I love that this locks for my bike trailer (Thule).


This is a must have for added security and peace of mind.


I bought this lock as a replacement for the original after I lost the key and had to cut it free from my vehicle. Everything arrived as advertised and has worked flawlessly for over a year. The pin is the right size for the hole on my Kuat Sherpa rack.


Awesome its all about customer support. etrailer is #1


I like the fact that the protective key cap is now attached to the lock. I lost a cap of your earlier version that had to be removed completely to access key hole.


Arrived faster than expected, which is good because I wanted to secure my bike rack that I just bought. Also the best part is I can use the lock on the threaded pin that came with my bike rack so its more stable. Highly recommend


I needed the lock for the 2” hitch pin which wouldn’t be available for 4 months. The lock from this fits right on the pin that came with the transfer 3 rack.


This lock worked fine with the rack.


The real deal, no complaints


Makes me feel more secure...great customer service at etrailer!


Excellent Seller! Will place an order again in the future! All the best!


Perfect part.
