works very well. Lock is still smooth and easy. Although I switch out a fold down reciever step and my hitch quite often it has stood the test of time. It also just looks so much better than others.

Purchased for the 2" hitch on my 2019 Ram. The shaft fits snugly (a good snug) through the holes of the hitch and the extension step that I also purchased (which also works great). I'm glad I purchased the Master Lock with the swivel lock as it is easier to lock and unlock. A good buy with quick delivery from etrailer. 798424

by:

Master lock is as described and good value from eTrailer. I have 3 others of these locks that I have used for 5-10 years each. All still work well. Never get anything but stainless steel as rust and cold is a issue in Wisconsin. So this item doesn't rust, and can be opened yet when frozen by applying some heat to it. Over time I have lost the dust covers on couple of them due to my fault, but still very good condition. The price is equal or less than FleetFarm, and delivered to my home. 756035



- 1480DAT
by:

While the product aesthetic looks are pleasing and looked cool at first and as much as I greased it to prevent corrosion, the actual lock mechanism inside where the shaft insert basically seized up making this lock completely useless. This happened within six months of use. I ended up buying a generic one from etrailer instead and of course, it works. I don't know if Masterlock's quality is the same as in the past. Certainly not for the price paid originally. 730628

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • How to Correct Frozen Hitch Lock 1480DAT That Will Not Open
    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. There are a few suggestions I can offer to you to get your lock # 1480DAT open. You can spray a bit of aerosol white lithium grease into the lock. Do not use powdered graphite as it will eventually harden. A small amount can also be applied to the key before it is inserted. The keys themselves sometimes will benefit from a bit of fine (500 grit) sandpaper...

  • Will Trailer Hitch Lock # 1480DAT Fit Roadmaster Base Plate Kit #1424-1 on 2003 Jeep Wrangler
    The pins used in the Roadmaster base plate kit # 1424-1 are 5/8 inch diameter pins. The Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, # 1480DAT, is also a 5/8 inch diameter pin. So it will fit the same holes as the regular pins. The inside pin length on the lock is 2-3/4 inches. The widest part of the end of the pin, the blue part, is 1.22 inches in diameter so a little less than 1-1/4 inches. That means that the blue part will stick up closer to that bolt by 0.59 inches. I then measure how far the...

  • How to Determine if the Master Lock Hitch Lock part # 1480DAT will fit a Hitch or Not
    Some vehicles (usually Toyota), have hitch tubes that are wider than most standard hitches. In those cases the part # 1480DAT would not be long enough to fit. What you will need to do is measure the outside width of your hitch to find out if this will fit. If the width of your hitch ends up less than 2-3/4 inches this will fit and work well. If you need a wider hitch the Tow Ready part # TR63253 has a usable span of 3-1/2 inches.

  • Hitch Lock Needed for the Swagman 2 Bike Wheel Mount Rack # S64650
    Locking the Swagman XC Cross Country 2-Bike Wheel Mount Rack, item # S64650, to the hitch will require the Locking Threaded Hitch Pin for Swagman Hitch Racks, item # S64029, which is specifically made for the racks that fit 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch hitch receivers. The Stainless Steel Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Trailer Hitches, item # 1480DAT, will not fit bike racks with threaded anti-rattle hitch pins.

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Lock and Coupler Latch Lock Keyed Alike for a 2015 Toyota Tundra with Factory Hitch
    I have a solution for you that will NOT require using any additional keys though it may not be what you expect. Since the factory Toyota hitch is so wide there are no lock sets that have a pin long enough. So what I recommend for the hitch lock is to use BOLT lock # BL7023584 which you can code to work with your 2015 Toyota Tundra key. Then you could use BOLT coupler latch lock # BL7025289 and code it to your truck key as well. No new keys, 2 new locks. That's pretty sweet!

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Recommendations For a 2007 Ford F-250 With Weight Distribution System

    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount do not come with a keyed locking pin to secure the shank to the receiver.

  • Fit of Master Lock # 1480DAT Hitch Lock on 2015 Toyota Tacoma
    If your Tacoma has an aftermarket hitch, the # 1480DAT lock you referenced will fit just fine, but if you have the factory hitch, the receiver tube might be too wide. You can take a measurement and check. If the outside to outside width of the receiver tube at the hitch pin hole is less than 2-5/8 inches, the Master Lock # 1480DAT lock wouldn't fit. We have a lock that's specially designed to work with the Tundra and Tacoma OEM hitches, it is part #e98881.

  • 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.
