SilentACT Hitch Pin Diagram

The SilentACT (Accessory Control Technology) hitch lock is designed to secure Thule bike racks and accessories to your 1-1/4" or 2" trailer hitch receiver. It also takes the rattle and play out of the connection between your trailer hitch and your hitch accessory.


Easy Installation

SilentACT Hitch Pin Diagram

It's easy to install, simply slide the shank into your hitch, insert the hitch pin, and use the integrated handle to rotate the pin clockwise to activate the anti-rattle device. This will pull the accessory up against the wall of your hitch receiver, thus keeping the accessory from moving around inside your hitch. When you're done, just fold the quick-release handle down to tighten the pin and eliminate clanking or vibrating.


Polyurethane Washer

SilentACT Polyurethane Washer

When the quick-release handle is folded down, the red polyurethane washer expands. To indicate the SilentACT is properly tightened the outer diameter of the red washer wil match the outer diameter of the flat washer.


Barrel-Style Lock

SilentACT Hitch Pin Diagram

The 90-degree, barrel-style lock goes on the end of the anti-rattle pin to secure your hitch-mounted accessories. Two round keys are included with the lock. A sturdy rubber dust cap comes attached to the barrel lock so that you can easily cover the lock cylinder to prevent dirt or grime from getting in and damaging the lock.

If you have a Curt trailer receiver, you have to put the lock on vertically with the lock facing down. Functionally, it works well in keeping the unit ultra quiet!

I have a trailer hitch bicycle rack to transport my bicycle for rides in the park. It gives me the peace of mind that no one will steal my bicycle rack while I am biking. it is quite during my drive and is easy and quick to install and remove.



- SHP2083
by:

Arrived early, fits my Thule Camber 4 perfectly. The handle probably works better on receivers that extend out longer, but on my U-Haul installed receiver, the short length and the proximity of the rear bumper makes it difficult to rotate it much more than 60°. I have to use a tool to help turn the pin tight enough to remove the rattle.

by:

I’ve been searching for a lock that was made for Thule being mounted on a Tesla model Y. Due to the way the hitch is set on the model Y you can’t use the factory Thule lock because of the wiring harness. The sideways locking mechanism gives enough room to lock the pin in and the threads work with Thule.

by:

Good quality, like everything from etrailer. They have become my go to place



- SHP2083
by:

Product was exactly as described. Installation was easy.



- SHP2083
by:

This anti rattle lock is a must have if you travel and haul bikes on a receiver hitch. It takes all the extra wobble out and keeps the bike rack solid while traveling. I highly recommend the lock.



- SHP2083
by:

The product has worked very well on my Thule bike rack. No rattle or worries when traveling.



- SHP2083
by:

It works as advertized. I would have preferred a metal handle, the synthetic handle bends some under higher pressure to tighten. I hope it doesn't break



- SHP2083
by:

still works well 1 year later



- SHP2083
by:

This fit my Thule hitch (Chamber 2) perfect, I like having the wrench attached it made it easier for me to tighten the screw, I had difficulty tightening the screw that came with the hitch. It is a plus that it can be locked. The hitch is secure with minimal movement. I highly recommend this product.



- SHP2083
by:

Fixes and fast shipping



- SHP2083
by:

The lock fit, but the threads on the pin in this set did not match threads on Thule receiver. Also, my hitch has a plate to attach a cable when towing, so it was very difficult to lock down the anti-vibration handle. With that said, eTrailer/s delivery and service were greate



- SHP2083
by:

Really like the close feature! Allows for the rack to stay firmly in place without any movement. Works really well.



- SHP2083
by:

Good quality and easy to install. The rubber bushing is a bit delicate so be careful when cinching down to lock in place. Only go as far as to allow the lock to engage and then cinch down. Don’t go too far! This will avoid smashing and splitting the delicate rubber bushing. Lesson learned. Otherwise, good product, fast shipping and outstanding customer service. Highly recommended.

Excellent quality, a perfect fit and prevents rattling.

Ask the Experts about this Lets Go Aero Trailer Hitch Lock

  • Will SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock Work With Thule Hitching Post Pro Bike Rack
    Yes it will! The Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR and SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Thule Bike Racks # SHP2083 are compatible, so the lock will work perfectly on the rack. I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well, showing exactly how to use the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock # SHP2083.

  • Anti-Rattle Locking Hitch Pin For SportRack Bike Rack With Threaded Shank
    The SilentAct Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock part # SHP2083 is designed for Thule Bike Racks but I do not believe the threading is the same for the SportRack threaded shanks. I recommend to use the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for SportRack Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers part # SR0901 which is also an anti-rattle lock that will eliminate some of the bike sway and bouncing that you may experience. You can also use the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch part # RM-061 which does a great job at tightening up the...

  • Cable Lock to Secure Bikes to Bike Rack
    Although I don't have anything specifically designed for use with the SilentACT # SHP2083 anti-rattle hitch lock, I do have a solution for you. I'd recommend using a cable lock like the etrailer # e98891. You can loop the cable through the wheels and around the frame of your bikes, then run the cable through the safety chain loops on the hitch.

  • Recommended Locking Hitch Pin for Thule T2 Classic
    Without seeing what's going on, the only lock of these two that is compatible with Thule products is the SilentACT # SHP2083. Manufacturers put a proprietary thread in the shanks of their bike racks that only allow certain hitch pins to work, and the SilentACT will have the same threading, so it's a great choice. You could also use the Thule Snug-Tite # THSTL2, but again, I'm not sure if you've already tried this and have run into the same issue. I would recommend trying to SilentACT...

  • Hitch Pin for a Thule Bike Rack to Fit a 2" Receiver
    It sounds like you are needing a new hitch pin for your Thule accessory. I have just the thing for you. It's the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Thule Bike Racks, part # SHP2083. This pin is designed to work with your threaded Thule bike rack (most Thule racks are threaded) and can be used with both 1-1/4" and 2" receivers. In fact, you can see in the video I've linked to that this particular application is using the 2" adapter for the Thule bike rack, and the pin works great....

    Yes the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Thule Bike Racks - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches part # SHP2083 will work well with the Thule Camber 4 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - Steel part # TH9056. This particular SilentACT hitch lock is designed to match the threaded shank of the Thule bike racks. This lock will work with 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" (Class I and Class II) and 2" x 2" Thule bike racks and accessories.

  • How to Lock Rola TX-102 Bike Rack to Trailer Hitch When Using it in 2 inch Hitch
    When using the Rola TX-102 # 59400 in a 2 inch hitch you can't use a standard hitch pin lock as it has a threaded pin. The Letsgoaero lock you mentioned does not use the same threads so it would not work. Best option is to route a cable lock like the # MPG357 through the bike frames and then back to the safety chain loops of the trailer hitch.

  • Replacement Anti Rattle Hitch Pin for Older Thule Revolver Swinging Bike Carrier
    As long as your existing Thule threaded hitch pin is a 1/2 inch in diameter, the # SHP2083 SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock will work great for you. This is easier to use than the Thule # THSTL2, which needs a wrench to install or remove. I've linked to a product demonstration video featuring the # SHP2083 hitch lock.

  • Hitch lock for SportsRack SR2405 Ridge 5 Bike Rack

  • Recommended Locking Anti-Rattle Pin for Thule Camber 4 Bike Rack
    The SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Thule Bike Racks - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # SHP2083 as you stated is not the correct fit. I've linked the page for returns since you haven't used it. For your Thule Camber 4 bike rack # TH9056, you will want the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device # THSTL2 which is the confirmed fit.

  • Will the SilentAct Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin Lock Cylinder Fit on a Thule Snug Tite Hitch Pin
    We have not tested cross compatibility for this across manufacturers so I can't say for sure if the lock from the SilentACT # SHP2083 will fit on the # THSTL2 pin. However, we have determined that the SilentACT # SHP2083 can be used with most Thule threaded hitch pins since the threads match so the pin is likely the same size at the top; we can't guarantee the two locks will work interchangeably though. You can try to see if you can make it work, or just use the # SHP2083 with the included...

  • Are Replacement Keys Available for the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Thule Bike Racks
    If there was a number on the keys that you were able to write down when you received the SilentACT # SHP2083, there should be a replacement key that can be used. If you don't have the number on the key, unfortunately the only option would be to replace it.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2020 Mazda CX-5 and Thule Camber 4-Bike Rack
    The Thule Camber 4-Bike Rack # TH9056 is an excellent choice for a bike rack for your 2020 Mazda CX-5. It has really good spacing between the bikes compared to other racks, protecting them from damage, holds bikes at three different points for optimal stabilization, and has easy-to-use levers for folding and tilting. It does not come with locks though so I do recommend protecting your investment by adding the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Thule Bike Racks # SHP2083 to lock the...

  • Thule Camber 2-Bike Rack vs. Thule Roadway 2-Bike Rack
    The Thule Roadway 2-Bike Rack # TH912XTR is a solid bike rack, but the better rack and one I recommend is the Thule Camber 2-Bike Rack # TH9058. The racks are similar in a lot of ways, but I like the slightly higher capacity of the Camber (37-1/2 lbs per bike compared to 35), and most importantly, the different cradles which ensure both your bikes and car are protected. The Roadway has the older style of cradles that are adjustable, but that means they can move or slide over time...

  • Does Thule Camber Bike Rack Fit Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver
    A Class III trailer hitch has a 2 inch receiver, and the Thule Camber 2-Bike Rack # TH9058 and Thule Camber 4-Bike Rack # TH9056 will absolutely fit in that size of hitch (it will actually fit in any hitch with a 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch receiver)! The Camber is going to do an excellent job of allowing you to transport your bikes because of its fixed anti-sway cradles that will keep your bikes perfectly stable as opposed to lesser hanging bike racks that have cradles which are not fixed...

  • Does Thule Camber 4-Bike Rack Come With a Warranty
    The Thule Camber 4-Bike Rack # TH9056 does come with a lifetime warranty. This means you are totally protected from any defects in workmanship; however, Thule products are among the most high-quality in the industry so the chances this warranty will ever come into play is very slim. The Camber is a fantastic bike rack that is easy to use and has arms which are spaced apart a full 7", which is more than other hanging racks which means your bikes won't come into contact with each other...

    We have the replacements for the knob of your Thule Apex XT, part # TH9024XT, here. For the knob itself, you will need the Replacement Locking Knob for Thule Bike Racks, part # TH79JV. I've linked to a video review of this below. Since you didn't have this to begin with, you will also need the One-Key System Lock Cylinders, part # TH450200. I've linked to a video review of this, too. If you still need additional components, let me know. These are the only available.

  • Will Draw-Tite Hitch For 2017 Subaru Outback Work With Thule Camber 4-Bike Rack
    For your 2017 Subaru Outback, the Thule Camber 4-Bike Rack # TH9056 is a really nice option and will work perfectly with the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76227. The reason for that is, when we installed this hitch on a 2017 Outback, we found it measured 3 inches from the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper, and the Camber measures 7 inches from the hitch pin to the closest part of the rack, so you'll have plenty of room for the rack to fit without any interference.

  • Will the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock Work With the Hollywood Racks RV Rider
    The Hollywood Racks RV Rider 2 Bike Platform Rack part # HLY64FR comes with its own threaded, locking hitch pin so there will be no need to use the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock part # SHP2083. That said, most bike rack manufactures don't release the hitch pin specifications as they want customers to use the ones they provide so I would not be able to confirm fit. I know the SilentACT is easier to use but you should not be removing the bike rack all that frequently.

    The SilentACT Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Thule Bike Racks # SHP2083 will work with your Thule T1 Bike Rack # TH9041, and does have a longer threaded portion than the Snug-Tite lock so it will be a great solution for you. The length of the threaded portion of the SilentACT is 2-1/2 inches, which is quite a bit longer than the 1-3/8 inch length of the threaded part of the Snug-Tite hitch lock that you mentioned wasn't quite long enough.

The Hitching Post Pro is a really good value for a 4-bike rack and is going to keep your bikes really stable due to its strong anti-sway cradles that tightly grasp your bikes at three different points.
