Video Transcript for Kuat Hitch Locks - Rack Specific Pin Lock - HL1-105 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at a hitch lock for Kuat bike racks. This hitch lock secures your Kuat bike rack to your inch and a quarter hitch. It works with all NV2.0, NV2.0 base, and Sherpa 2.0 bike racks. The lock and pin are made from a durable steel construction, so it's a nice, strong design and it also features protective finishing to keep the components safe from rust and corrosion. On the lock body we have the integrated dust shield. It does a great job at keeping dirt and moisture out of the lock body.

Keys are included. It also comes with a burlap bag to store your items when they aren't in use, and it comes with a Kuat key chain that also is a bottle opener.So to unlock the unit, we need to take one of the keys. They're key to like, so either key will work with the lock. Place it in, rotate it, and then the lock pops right off. One of the neat features is that you don't have to have the keys installed in the body to lock it.

It just snaps on to the pin to lock back in place.Now, this is available in different lock codes, so be sure to check out all the options at etrailer.com and get the correct one that you need for your installation. The pin diameter is 3/8 of an inch. The overall length of the unit is about 5 3/4 inches. And then if we take a measurement of the span or the usable pin length, basically where we're measuring from is the lock body to the curved portion of the pin, which on this gives us a usable pin length of around four inches. Again, 3/8 inch diameter, and it is covered with a limited lifetime warranty, and when it's not in use you can put all of your stuff inside the burlap storage bag; that way it's ready for you the next time you need it.That's gonna do it for today's look at the hitch lock for Kuat bike racks..

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

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (15 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.

- HL1

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.

- HL1

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.

- HL1

Awesome its all about customer support. etrailer is #1

- HL1

The real deal, no complaints

- HL1

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

- HL1

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.

- HL1

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

- HL1

Perfect part.

Ask the Experts about this Kuat Trailer Hitch Lock

  • Does Kuat Replacement Lock Come With Specific Locks
    At one point, Kuat had specific lock numbers available but they have changed that recently in order to make ordering locks easier for their bike racks; due to this, specific lock numbers are not something Kuat makes available. The correct lock is going to depend on what rack you have and your hitch size. - Kuat NV 2.0, NV 2.0 Base, and Sherpa 2.0 with 1-1/4" Hitch: Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike Racks # HL1 - Kuat NV 2.0, NV 2.0 Base, and Sherpa 2.0 with 2" Hitch: Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike...

  • Is the Kuat Bike Rack Hitch Lock the Only Hitch Pin Lock That Works on Kuat Beta Rack
    Yes, most bike rack manufacturers will use an exclusive size and thread on the hitch lock for their own brand of bike racks. So, the Kuat bike racks will only be able to use the # HL1 for a hitch pin lock. We have not run into any problems with the Kuat hitch lock not fitting properly on a Kuat hitch bike rack. The review you mentioned does not say if he was using the Kuat hitch lock on a Kuat bike rack. If he was using it on a different brand of bike rack that used a 1/2 inch hitch...

  • What is the Kuat Bike Rack Hitch Lock for 1-1/4 Inch Racks Made Of
    I called and spoke with my contact at Kuat. He stated that the Bike Rack Hitch Lock for 1-1/4 Inch Racks, # HL1, is made of stainless steel. That would include the 5/16 inch diameter pin and the lock itself. There are no plastic pieces on the lock or pin. The lock will fit the Kuat Alpha, Beta, Sherpa and NV 1-1/4 inch bike racks.

  • How To Carry 4 Bikes On A 2008 Mazda 5
    I do have a couple options for you but Class I hitches like the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame part # 24773 that fits the 2008 Mazda 5 are designed to only carry 2 bikes because of it's limited tongue weight rating. The weight of the bikes and bike rack is all considered tongue weight on the hitch and putting 4 bikes on a rack in a Class I hitch would create too much leverage and possibly damage the hitch or vehicle. With that being said, I recommend to get a 2 bike rack for the Class I...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Ford Fiesta Sedan
    The correct trailer hitch for your 2019 Ford Fiesta Sedan is the Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24910. This is a Class I trailer hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver just like the part # 24961 that fits the Hatchback model. If you plan on using this trailer hitch with a bike rack then I recommend using the Kuat Beta # B202-114 because it is comes fully assembled, weighs in at only 12.6 lbs, and has arms located 8" apart on center which greatly reduce the need for an adapter bar like # UB01 for bikes...

If you don't already have a bike rack then I highly recommend using the Kuat Beta # B202-114 because it gives you a great bike rack at a great price. This bike rack has an aluminum frame...

  • Hitch Extender for Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2006 Mini Cooper S R53

These will move the hitch pin hole of the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11126 on your 2006 Mini Copper further out to make it easier to install your bike rack. I do recommend using an anti-rattle device like the Quiet Hitch # RM-061-125 to help reduce any play in the hitch receiver. You can then use a pin and clip # PC2 or a locking hitch pin # e98879 to secure and leave the extension installed on your...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Needed to Carry 2 Bikes with a 2014 Honda Civic
    Most vehicles do have trailer hitches that are made to fit them. Typically the only vehicles that you can't find a trailer hitch for are little sporty cars. We do have some trailer hitches that fit your 2014 Honda Civic. Out of the Draw-Tite # 24763 and the Curt # C11391 I recommend going with the Curt option. It does require the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 for non-trailer loads (per the warranty) but the Draw-Tite has a weld-stop in the receiver which keeps you from using...

    The best bike rack options are hitch mount bike racks. They do not make contact with your vehicle, offer better security, and have a much wider variety of options to choose from. To carry a hitch mounted bike rack you naturally need a trailer hitch. I recommend going with the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11466 which is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver opening. This is a custom fit hitch that is made right here in the USA and has a limited lifetime warranty. Please note that since you...

  • Recommended Hitch Lock for Kuat Beta 2 Bike Rack
    Kuat offers two different hitch locks, the # HL1 for the # B202-114 Beta that's designed for the 1-1/4 inch receiver and the # HL2 lock that's designed for the # B202-2 Beta rack that's designed for the 2 inch receiver. If the correct lock is used for the correct rack, no alterations of any kind will be necessary (we don't recommend altering the rack in any way, as it will compromise your warranty protection.)

    Thank you for the pictures of the bikes! It always helps to know exactly what the bikes look like that are being discussed. Although the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier # SA805BL is a cost-effective option that has received great reviews from our customers, if you are trying to stay away from solutions that could potentially put scratches on your 2004 BMW 325Ci convertible then I recommend going with a hitch mounted bike rack.

Even though it is the only fit at this time it is still a great trailer hitch that has a very clean look once installed due to the crossbeam being hidden behind the bumper (see attached photo). Please note that since this is a Class I trailer hitch you are limited to a 2 bike rack and that per the Curt warranty...

    I have to contradict the other retailers that said there is no roof rack designed to fit the roof on your 2012 Camry Hybrid. We offer several roof racks that will work for you.

The roof rack has clamps that fit the door jambs and has custom crossbars that will match the width of your vehicle roof. The crossbars are aerodynamic elliptical...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for Hauling a Bike Rack With a 2016 Nissan Sentra
    Although the Curt Hitch # C11349 that you mentioned is a good option, I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Hitch # 24907. The Curt hitch requires you to use a support or stabilizing strap, like part # 18050, with all non-trailer loads, like bike racks and cargo carriers. Not using the strap will void your warranty. Draw-Tite does not have that requirement for their hitches which is why I default to that hitch instead of the Curt. The Draw-Tite hitch has a Max Gross Trailer Weight of...

    The best hitch for carrying a bike rack on a 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback without center exhaust is the Draw-Tite Sportframe Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24954 because it provides 2 more inches of ground clearance compared to the other option. The Draw-Tite provides about 11 inches of ground clearance so the bike rack is less likely to drag the ground in low ground clearance situations like backing down a hill.
