Video Transcript for Review of MaxxTow Hitch Locks - Standard Pin Lock - MT38FR

Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at the MaxxTow hitch receiver lock. This is going to help secure your bike rack, cargo carrier, ball mount or hitch cover, really any of your hitch-mounted accessories. It's going to help secure those to your trailer hitch so you don't have to worry about those being stolen when you're not nearby.This is used in place of your standard pin and clip to help prevent that theft. Really, your standard pin and clip are just there to help make sure that your hitch-mounted accessory doesn't slide out of your receiver tube while you're traveling.

But once you get to your location they are very easy to remove. If someone really likes your bike rack, if you didn't have a locking device like this, they could very easily take that off and steal that bike rack away. So, it's very important to have one of these if you are going to be leaving your hitch-mounted accessory on your hitch.Now, this is a half-inch pin, so it's going to work with your inch-and-a-quarter by inch-and-a-quarter receiver tubes. Let me take this lock off here and you can see this does have an adapter sleeve. This is what our half-inch pin looks like.

This will slide into the half-inch pin on those inch-and-a-quarter by inch-and-a-quarter receiver tubes, and it will lock that in place so that any of those bike racks or anything that you have in place will stay in place.Then if you do have a larger two-inch by two-inch receiver tube, you can simply slide that hitch converter sleeves in place. They do include a little rubber ring there to make sure that this is beaded up against there and not causing any problems there. So, this could work for your two-inch by two-inch receiver tube, the openings in place of your standard five-eighths-inch clip.Now typically, you're only going to need one or the other, either your five-eighths-inch lock or your half-inch pin. So, one way or the other, you have your inch-and-a-quarter receiver tube or your two-inch receiver tube. You really don't need this for both.

The only application that you'd be using this in is if you have two vehicles maybe and you've got an inch-and-a-quarter on one and a two-inch on the other, and you only use the one bike rack, so you're switching up between the two. So, you want to have that adaptability. This is going to work great for that.But if you don't have that specific situation, I would recommend one or the other. I don't know that you really need that adaptability if you only have one kind of hitch or the other. But you can see if this does come with two keys.

They are going to easily slide in there. Just give that a little bit of a twist. What I like to do is then return that back to the locked position so that, as we pass this through our pin hole, we just have to line it up and it's locked in place so we don't have to worry about holding this while we turn the key to lock it back.But you can see that we've got our PVC dust cap to help prevent any dirt, debris, or water from getting in and corroding our locked cylinder. And we're also going to have this nice textured grip that's going to help us with our handling. Make sure that we get a nice good grip on that. This is made out of a carbon steel construction, so it's going to be a very heavy duty, can hold on well, stand up well to the elements. It does have an e-coating on it. Again, it just makes it even more durable, going to help resist any corrosion, a very solid product.It is a flush style, so it's going to have an opening here of only about two-and-three-quarters-of-an-inch. So, not much room, especially if you have that two-inch receiver tube. There's not going to be a whole lot of room on the side here for anyone to try and get bolt cutters or anything like that in to cut that off if they we're trying to get to your bike rack or cargo carrier, whatever you have mounted on your hitch. So, having that nice and snug is going to be a benefit for you.Overall, I think it was going to be a great option if you're looking for a receiver tube lock. This is very heavy duty and I think it's going to do a good job for you. That's going to complete our look at the MaxxTow hitch receiver lock. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.
