Video Transcript for Review of MaxxTow Hitch Locks - Standard Pin Lock - MT96FR

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, or cargo carrier, your ball mount, or a hitch cover, really any of your hitch mounted accessories. This is going to pass through the pin hole and make sure that it is staying on your receiver tube of your hitch, so that anyone who comes along and admires your hitch mounted accessory isn't going to be able to take it with them. It's going to help protect that and make sure that it's there when you come back to your vehicle.

This is going to be used in place of your standard 5/8ths inch pin and clip. So really those pin and clips are just designed to make sure that your hitch mounted accessory is not wiggling its way out of your hitch when you're moving, so it's going to be in there when you get to your destination.But if you're going to leave your hitch mounted accessory on your hitch overnight, or in an area where you're not going to be around to keep an eye on it, this is the way to go. It's going to not only make sure that the hitch mounted accessory is staying in there while you're traveling, but it's also going to help deter any theft once you get to your destination. This is a 5/8ths inch pin lock. It's going to replace your 5/8ths inch pin and clip.

It is going to work with your two inch by two inch receiver tubes, as well as your two and a half inch by two and a half inch receiver tubes. The internal links here, we're looking at right about three and a half inches of space, so you are going to have a little bit of room on either side of that receiver tube, but not very much, so it should still be difficult for anyone to get in there and cut this off or anything.It is made of a carbon steel, so it's going to be very sturdy, going to be difficult for anyone to get off. It does have that black e-coat on it, so it's going to be very durable. You're not going to have to worry about rust and corrosion, anything like that. You can see we do have a textured grip here to make that a little bit easier to hold on to, especially in those wet, snowy, muddy conditions.

Get a little bit better grip on that. And you can see we do have our weather resistant PVC cap that's going to help keep our lock mechanism free of any dirt, debris, or water that could get in there and damage that. We've got two keys come with this, that easily fit in there. Give it a little turn and it comes apart. We'll slide this through our hitch, and then on the other side, put this on.A little tip.

You can put it on like that and then lock it in place. It's going to be nice and firm. But what I like to do when I take it off, I like to then automatically go back and put it in the lock position, so then all I have to do is slide it through, and it will lock in place. So it's going to be very convenient to use, and a very heavy duty, solid option to make sure that your hitch mount accessories are not walking away on you. Helps deter anyone from stealing them. So that's going to complete our look at the MaxxTow hitch receiver lock. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.

Designed for 2" and 2-1/2" trailer hitch receivers, this lock with a 5/8" diameter pin is perfect for keeping any hitch accessory or ball mount locked securely to your hitch. Carbon steel with black e-coat resists corrosion.

- MT96FR

This is my second purchase of this brand and model of hitch lock. I highly recommend it.

- MT96FR

Dont get it you leave your hitch in year round, locking mechanism seized and was a pain to get released even after using pb blaster and tapping it. always had the weather cap on as well but I guess it's not really made to resist the elements

- MT96FR

In powder coated black, this receiver lock is top shelf. Bravo! The 3.5in span did the trick for me and the ‘21 Taco’s 3” requirement. Slotted rubber cap will keep the round peg lock free of dirt. Also, nice diamond etching will make easy swap-outs in bad weather. Another 5-star winner from strainer.

- MT96FR

Locks need to be clean and lubricated often to keep from sticking. I bought 3 of these and all are the same.

- MT96FR

Post fits in hitch receiver great, and the lock portion locks and unlocks easily.

- MT96FR

Just what I needed for security and to top off the new install. Looks great as well. Highly recommended.

Works great

Fits newer F350 3" hitch which requires 3.5" free area. Hard to find locking pin that fits. Had two other brands that became stuck and needed 3 hands to operate. This one works with two hands.

- MT96FR

Well made product, has nice weight to it. Worth the money and wait, happy with this purchase.

- MT96FR

Nice looking pin and lock system. Took off 1 star because unit is made in Chine I didn't see that bit of information in add. I hope the metal holds up to the stress of pulling 11,000 lb. trailer.
