Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Trailer Hitches - Stainless Steel - 1480DAT

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (433 Customer Reviews)

Innovative swivel head and solid stainless steel construction make this flush-design hitch lock a great choice for securing your ball mount, bike rack or cargo carrier to your 2" hitch receiver. Can be keyed alike to match other 1480DAT locks.


Love the products, love the support, love the videos and resources for using these. Couldn't be happier with your company, except ONE THING: Shipping.
In ordering two hitches (got one for a friend) both came with the hitches bursting through the cardboard box.
While there was no damage to either (it's steel!) In the second shipment, the including lock pin set got so rattled the boxed set came apart, and the keys literally fell out of the MAIN box during shipping.
Looking at some other customer reviews, this is NOT uncommon.
I understand saving some money on shipping - but your shipping department needs to pack smaller items in a more secure manner within these huge boxes.
It also wouldn't hurt to use some styrofoam on the edges of the hitches that are prone to puncture the boxes, causing an egress point for the smaller insecure items in the box to be lost. Just MHO.


It just plain works, however due to the right angle locking design it is a little awkward to get the lock head on while you are holding the key in the spinning lock head and at the same time holding the pin in with you other hand as you put pressure on the pin while you are pushing on the locking head AND turning the key while the lock hesd wants to spin...mine will not press on and lock without the key in and turned..3 handed monkey operation


Really good and cool looking hitch lock, service from trailer is always excellent, have purchased several products for my vehicles there, always great quality and superb costumer service..


Easy to use, works as advertised. I use this to lock my bike rack onto my Subaru Crosstrek and its easy to lock and unlock.

Still clicking along after a year of use. No issues.
Elaine - 10/31/2021


In addition to the hitch and bike rack, a Kuat, I purchased this extremely sturdy lock. It’s thicker than the one which came with the rack, but still has no problem being threaded through the hitch and rack, and adds stability, besides security.


Works as expected, no problems, completely satisfied


Solid gear. Well constructed. Easy & convenient security for hitch cover / ball assembly. Look forward to many years of reliable use.


Exactly what I needed for my 2014 Jeep Wrangler! Fits perfectly and does not interfere with the light connector.


Nice looking unit. They key is very soft though and will bend if its not completely inserted in the tumbler.

Thank you for the feedback. I would recommend making sure that the lock is cleaned out regularly. If you have used any lubricants to maintain the lock, blow it out with canned air and re-lube it with a PTFE lube formula such as Tri-flow. This may allow the key to slide in more easily and prevent it from bending.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 10/26/2021


Good product, good price, good service


Great alternative for a trailer hitch lock for my 2016 Yukon because of GM's lack of spacing between receiver and seven pin plug to use my lock that had key entering from the horizontal direction.

Worked fine. thx
Philip - 03/12/2017


Great product! Solid and sturdy construction, exactly as described. Also, fast processing and shipping! Great company with great products.


Fits snugly, no signs of any wear after many trips over the last year. Really appreciate the keyed alike set of two which secures my trailer to the tow vehicle, and my bike rack to the rear of the trailer. Would definitely buy again if needed!


Durable locks that are easy lock and un lock.


Prefect! It was just as advertised


Second of these locks purchased. As good as the first.


Love the product, the service and the very personal touch from! Great to deal with and an overall great experience so far! The lock was for my hitch extender which is also perfect?

It continues to work very well
Chris E - 09/10/2017


Works great, no issues. This lock makes it easy to access the keyhole. Our previous straight lock took two people and some tricky hand positions to get the key inserted, because of the tight spacing around the hitch reciever and electrical trailer connector on the back of our Audi Q7. I'd recommend this to anyone with a cramped setup around their hitch.


Well as a truck camper owner the big, big thing is always getting up into the rig.
These steps are highly talked of online. I like them and knew they would solve my entering problem.
They did....but they are very awkward and bulky to travel with....

I actually think they should make them break down for tvavel... to work hard to ship my order fast and etrailer seems to be very willing to work hard at reasonable prices...
.So, I must try to help etrailer on this one honest mistake.....

When my order shipped, etrailer combined my two BIG BuLKY. Awkwad set of steps.....with my hitch-lock that goes in it....

Well the awkward steel steps ripped and gashed the cardboard box in about 3 or 4 areas. There was no packing foam or bunched news paper...

This poor master hitch lock hadn't a rattled around on the steps and got bashed out of its little box......and out of its internal bag....and its little set of keys likely went bye bye out one of 4 big box gashes.....

So, now I need to... somehow get new keys to this is useless as is.....
If etrailer can send keys the key number is on the box as : 1480 KA. Key:0501.

If etrailer sends me a working hitch-lock with keys... my problem is solved...

Aside of this unfortunate happening, I am happy with the price and quality and service that eTrailer has delivered...I just need this one little issue fixed to give etrailer 5 Stars.!
Thank You for your concern

Master lock has done an excellent job on the design and function of this hitch lock. After doing a number of research on varies types and models, this was the top choice. Right now I'm just using it for my hitch cover. I don't want my cover getting legs and walk away. It fits perfectly on my 2012 Dodge Durango Crew factory 2" hitch receiver. The next best thing about this Lock. I brought it from you guys (Etrailer). The price was right and shipping was fast. From here on out I will only buy all of my hitch and roof rack assessories from etrailer. Great job guys and keep the great work.


I use these to lock up my Roadmaster tow brackets (2 of them) on my Jeep Wrangler and my Falcon 2 tow bars on my Class C (3 locks total all keyed alike) and they work great. Nice to have them all keyed alike and to know that everything is locked up nice and secure.


I like the fact that I now only need to carry 1 key set to open two of these locks; but it's a little short to use on my 2014 Toyota Tacoma -- is just won't lock because the shank is about 2-3mm shorter than what I need. Now I have an extra 2" hitch lock that I can't use for what I purchased it for.

This lock will not work with some factory 2 trailer hitches that have an outside width wider than 2-3/4. Toyota OEM trailer hitches have that extra piece on the outside of the hitch and they require a different, longer locking hitch pin such part #1469DAT.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 07/12/2018


This review is more about etrailer customer service than the part ordered...Customer service is fantastic!..The reciever i ordered didnt show up..I called customer service and talked with Maddy...She took care of the problem in less than 2 minutes...I will look no futher than etrailer for all my trailer needs!


Quality theft deterrent. Available in “keyed alike”, very convenient with multiple vehicles & hitches & less keys on my key ring. Great design how the brass lock cylinder hangs downward, to keep water and debris out, also has a rubber cover. The lock cylinder easily rotates to face the user to insert the key, no more laying on the ground fumbling to find the key hole. I like the 1480 that has the small blue grip that doesn’t interfere with the safety chains/cables. The 2866 hitch pin just has a bend in it, and gets in the way of safety chains/cables.


My order consist of products from well known companys - Curt and Master Locks which are all Quality Made. I bought these items before picking up my Trailer,so to have ready for hookup. After looking at products ,they are new from the companys and ready to be used.I may have to update my Review after using products for 6 -12 months.,I did buy alike keys not knowing i couldn't get same keys for Hitch and Coupler,so i called Etrailer and they will Credit me back that amount.,Other than this no problem,yet. I'm thinking these products will last me for a very long time.

  • Can Master Lock Hitch Lock # 1480DAT Be Keyed Alike With Other Master Lock Parts?
    The Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1480DAT cannot be keyed to match an existing Master Lock key. This product can only be keyed alike with new products in the same order that have the keyed alike option available from the manufacturer so we can match the key numbers for you. You will need to select keyed alike in each product you desire to be matched within your order.

  • Can 5/8" Diameter Locking Hitch Pins be Keyed Alike?
    You can get four hitch receiver locks with a 5/8" pin diameter keyed alike with the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1480DAT, which is for 2" trailer hitch receivers. All you need to do is go to the drop-down box on the product page and select "Keyed Alike" and then enter "4" in the box next to "Quantity."

  • What is Class Rating of Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock
    Trailer hitch pins and receiver locks, such as the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1480DAT that you referenced, do not typically have a listed Class rating or weight capacity. This is simply because they are built with extreme weight bearing capabilities that can handle any weight that would be put on them (regardless of the trailer hitch's weight capacity). If you see a Class rating listed on a hitch pin or lock, this is simply in reference to the receiver size (1-1/4 inch, 2...

  • How to Correct Key That Will Not Turn in Master Lock 1480DAT Hitch Lock
    When a key will not turn in a lock with an item like Master Lock # 1480DAT sometimes a very gentle tap with a small hammer will help to fully seat the key in the tumbler. You can also try a light sanding of the key's teeth with fine grit sandpaper (500-grit wet type is what I recommend) to remove any tiny spurs that could be the cause for the problem. Another effort you might try is with the key out of the lock, position the lock with the opening facing down, and while in this position...

  • Will the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 1480DAT Fit a Class III Hitch on a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    The Master Lock hitch pin lock # 1480DAT should not interfere with the trailer connector on your 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The blue end and the lock end only stick out 1-1/2 inches each on either side so if the connector is 3 inches away from the receiver you will still have 1-1/2 inches of clearance. You will want to have the lock end on the side of the receiver closest to the trailer connector so you can pull the pin out the other side.

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for a 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe with Factory Hitch
    Some factory hitches are made thicker than usual. We have not had any issues with the Hyundai factory hitches but you can still measure the outside width of your hitch opening to see if the MasterLock Hitch Lock part # 1480DAT would fit it. The usable span of this lock is 2-3/4 inches.

    After a long period in place a lock mechanism can stick and make it tough to get the key in it, or to get the inserted key to turn.

Do not use powdered graphite as it will eventually harden. A small amount can also be applied to the key before it is inserted.

  • Difference Between Keyed Alike and Keyed Unique for Hitch Coupler Locks
    Some hitch manufacturers give us the ability to order their hitch locks with matching key numbers so that if you had several hitch locks but only wanted one key to remember you could order them all keyed alike and only need the one key. If that is what you want you would need to select the keyed alike feature on the MasterLock lock part # 1480DAT that you mentioned. If you don't need them keyed alike then leaving the selection as keyed unique would be fine.

  • Hitch Lock Does Not Open But The Key Turns
    I consulted with my contact at the Master Lock company and was advised of the following steps to help resolve your issue with the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock not working # 1480DAT. First ensure you are using the correct key. If you have used any lubricants with the lock, blow it out with canned air. Re-lube the lock with PTFE lube formula (such as Tri-flow). Work your key back into the lock to open it.

  • Will a Hitch Lock for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitches Fit a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    The Master Lock hitch lock # 1469DAT is designed with a longer pin that what is typically needed for a Class III, 2 inch trailer hitch since it was designed for wider 2-1/2 inch hitches. However, both 2 inch and 2-1/2 inch hitches have a 5/8 inch pin hole diameter so the lock will fit. The inside span is 3-1/4 inches and may appear very long in a 2 inch hitch.

This lock is designed for 2-1/2 inch hitches so it is very long, the inside span that actually goes through the receiver is 3-1/4 inches long. Measure the width of your receiver on the outside (from pin to pin hole) and if less than 3-1/4 inches long it will fit. You likely have a 2 inch trailer hitch.

  • Could Tow Ready Base Rail Lock # TR63254 be Used as Hitch Lock
    It would be a bit thin compared to most hitch pins but the part # TR63254 would technically work as a lockable hitch pin. It's 1/2 inch in diameter and most applications call for 5/8. The part # 1480DAT is a great choice that is the standard 5/8 inch diameter. The smaller hitch pin size would mean much more movement and rattle when on the road.
