The lock is to short for a 2019 Tacoma TRD sport. It's a good lock for the right vehicle. 724980

Have used it on about 8 deer hunting trips with my storage rack. No complaints. It does what it is supposed to do. The dirt cover keeps the key hole clean and the lock clips onto the bolt easy. Also the bolt diameter matches the hole on my 2016 Grand Cherokee perfectly without any play. 445035

The lock still works great. Hoping to put it use again soon.

This is a high quality, user friendly hitch lock. I purchased one from Walmart that took “Three Men and a Baby” to lock and unlock. This one locks with one hand and is a snap to remove. Delivery was supernaturally fast ( just as fast as [online retailer subscription service]) . I highly recommend this product and etrailer. com. 692815

This lock is well made and works, but it is difficult to lock. It is designed with a spring-loaded and cammed locking mechanism so that you should be able to push the keyed barrel onto the shaft without using the key, but it is very difficult to do. I usually end up needing to insert and turn the key to get the two pieces to mate. This is not convenient when you are bending down and working underneath the truck's bumper. Pushing the two pieces together is already a two-handed job without having to turn the key. Other than this it is a quality product, but usability is very important. 647313


Comments
Within 2 weeks this lock fell off while I was pulling a trailer, causing the hitch to pull out of the receiver. Luckily I had the safety chains hooked up so I didn’t lose the trailer in traffic. But I was stranded at the side of the road and had to walk to an auto parts store to get another hitch pin. This was a result of the locking mechanism being too difficult to secure. I thought it was locked correctly but obviously not.

Great fit and quality. The rubber cap fits snug on the lock so it should keep dirt and water out well. The locking pin fits my 2011 Grand Cherokee just right. No more busted knuckles trying to remove the cotter pin! 614972

Ask the Experts about this Master Lock Trailer Hitch Lock

  • Keyed Alike Masterlock Hitch Lock Recommendation
    Yes, you will need Master Lock Hitch Lock # 1480DAT. This lock can be keyed alike by selecting keyed alike from the drop down menu by the add to cart button and then entering the quantity of locks you need. The Masterlock Hitch Lock # 1479DAT does not have a keyed-alike option so it would not work for what you are trying to do.

  • Why Doesn't Masterlock Hitch Lock part # 1479DAT Have Towing Capacity
    The Masterlock Hitch Lock part # 1479DAT does not have a specified towing capacity. Reason being that rarely does the hitch pin bare the weight of the trailer it's towing. The tongue weight of the trailer binds the ball mount up in the hitch which provides nearly all of the horizontal resistance to prevent the ball mount from sliding out.

  • What is the Pin Diameter for Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, # 1479DAT
    The Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, # 1479DAT, has a pin diameter of 5/8 inches. On a 2 inch trailer hitch the pin hole is going to take a 5/8 inch diameter. On a 1-1/4 inch hitch it will use a 1/2 inch diameter pin. I have included a link to a video review of this lock for you.

  • Fit of Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1479DAT in 2-Inch Hitch Receiver
    The two Master Lock hitch locks you referenced, # 1479DAT for 2-Inch Hitches and # 1472DAT for 1-1/4-inch hitches, both are designed to fit those standard hitch receiver sizes. Neither one uses or needs a sleeve of any sort since they are each sized to fit the widths of these two hitches. Both are chrome-plated steel for corrosion resistance, both include a weather-resistant snap-on cover to protect the lock mechanism and both come with 2 keys. I have linked product videos for both.

  • Is the Master Lock EZ Access Swivel Head Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1479DAT Available Keyed Alike
    I would recommend the Master Lock Stainless Steel receiver Lock, item # 1480DAT, for a keyed alike hitch lock that is durable and can withstand the elements. There is a drop down box on the product page where you can select keyed alike and then enter the quantity you need. At this time the Master Lock EZ Access Swivel Head Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, item # 2854DAT, is not offered keyed alike. I have included a link to out hitch locks that can be purchased keyed alike for you to review.

  • Will Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Fit the Curt Trailer Hitch C13149
    The Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1479DAT will work great with the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13149. The Curt trailer hitch has a 2 inch hitch receiver and the Master Lock hitch lock is designed to work with 2 inch hitch receivers. This hitch pin lock has an inside pin length of 2-3/4 inches and a 5/8 inch pin diameter. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13149 is confirmed to fit your 2006 Toyota RAV4. I have attached an installation video of this hitch on a 2007 RAV4 for you.

  • Will the Master Lock Swivel Head Hitch Lock Fit on a 2010 Ford Explorer 2 Inch Receiver
    Yes, the Master Lock Swivel Head Receiver Lock, # 1479DAT, will work with the 2 inch receiver on your 2010 Ford Explorer. This lock is designed to fit all 2 inch trailer hitches and is also designed to work with OEM trailer hitches that have limited clearance for a hitch pin because the hitch pin hole sits close to the hitch crosstube.

  • Hitch Lock for 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
    The issue is that threaded locks like the HitchMate # HE6001 are specific to certain accessories; in this case the HitchMate is certain Advantage bike racks. You never mentioned if you have a 1-1/4" or 2" receiver but it sounds like the 5/8" diameter the bolts is the problem from what I can gather, as opposed to the length, which would indicate you have a 1-1/4" receiver. We do not carry Solvit so there is no guarantee a standard lock will work but the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Does the Trailer Hitch Lock # e98880 Have Rubber Grips on Each End
    The black rubber grip is just on the one end of trailer hitch lock # e98880. The other end has a rubber cap that covers the key hole but no rubber around the rest of the locking piece. Master Lock hitch lock # 1479DAT is more like what you have described.

  • Can I Tow A 2018 Chevy Equinox Using A Maxx Tow Dual Hitch MT70070
    The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-8 that you referenced is designed for flat towing vehicles and an additional accessory like a bike rack, for example, with the additional 2 x 2" opening. It does provide an 8" drop and you will not need an additional receiver to accomplish this. It allows your tow bar to set level as you flat tow the vehicle. Hitch pins and clips are not included so if you need, the Curt Pin and Clip For Class III, IV and V Trailer Hitch # C21500 is...
