This hitch lock is a must have if you have an expensive bike rack. This gives a piece-of-mind and save you the hassles of installing and uninstalling the bike rack. It is very easy to install. 430759

Product order/delivery experience was outstanding. Product is definitely to carry my two bikes safely. Assembly was easy and fits on my new truck just fine. The shipment contained all three items that were ordered all coming in one box with a label clearly showing content of shipment.... so nice to not have anything missing. Out of the box in just a few minutes and passed my test drive.... solid fit, no rattles, and looks pretty good too! I purchased the Snug Site Hitch Lock and Anti Rattle Device Bike Adaptor Bar for my wife's bike. Very satisfied! 339375

by:

It sucks that Thule does not include this with the $400 rack they sell but well worth the additional cost and ease of mind knowing that it's now locked in place. Secures just like the original bolt, only now it's secured. Draw back is I have two keys, one to lock the rack to the car and the second for locking the bikes to the rack. 567350

Easy to install and provides level of security desired. Last thing I want is someone to steal my bike rack and this product is perfect to deter theft. 80856


Comments
Thanks for following up - impressive.The products I bought from etrailer are great. The rack turned out to be quite the attraction as I had several people see me with it in use and come over to see how it works and ask where did I get it. Hopefully you received some orders from some of the people I referred to etrailer.The products I purchased and your service is great.

Ordered the Draw-Tite 24763 for my 2015 Honda Civic Sedan, and was very satisfied at the speed and detail of not only the correspondence and email between etrailer.com but also the shipping speed and condition of packaging. I received this in six days from start to finish of order. I did not spring for faster shipping and was satisfied with this type of time frame considering the size and weight of packaging. I also got the Thule Hitching Post TH934XTR four bike rack and THSTL2 hitch lock anti-rattle device. I had planned ahead by watching all of the great videos on etrailer and printed out some instructions from the site. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised with their attention to detail that this was unnecessary as they included a copy of the same instructions I printed in the box. The install went exactly like the instructions/videos said it would and if I hadn't been interested in getting the beauty plastic underbody piece back on I could have been done in fifteen minutes with a lift and another set of hands. All in all a very easy kit to install, and thanks to etrailer for the speed, quality, and including all the necessary hardware and instructions. 5/5 would definitely do business with again and recommend. 269804

I've ordered from etrailer.com three times over the past two years and I am very satisfied with the products and their services. This past order I was looking for a particular trailer hitch lock and they helped me find it with no trouble. I would highly recommend etrailer and I expect to use them in future. 136744

Excellent Bike Rack. Timely delivery of product. Easy installation. Minimal parts to attach. The Rack is solid. We will be transporting our bikes for various biking events and exploration around the state. I am extremely pleased with etrailer and their staff. Very informative - Video Reviews and How To...Also ordered Bike adapter and snug tite hitch lock. Very Pleased!! 352339

by:

Good lock. When tightened down, it really locks the hitch and rack together. Driving down the road, I noticed no shake at all - even going over some low grade bumps. Of course you can use the bolt Thule furnishes to lock it down if you don't want the anti-theft protection. I would have rated it "Excellent" except for the cost. Surely 50 bucks is overpriced! - BUT, it does the job 146478

Both the rack and the lock are working quite well. The rack is a quality product and I enjoy using it.

Its been working good after a year, but the end cap over the lock with the Thule name comes off very easily and can be lost.

Anything Thule makes is well constructed. This little lock is no exception. It is easy to install and locks the bolt in place that holds the carrier in your two inch trailer hitch. The shaft is on the long side, protruding a couple of inches or more beyond the framework. But, due to its location it would be difficult, but not impossible to saw off. And a word about the website, when you view the page of the product you are looking at, you will see a row of windows below with other products that are similar but not necessarily compatible. I made the mistake of ordering a lock that was incompatible with the bike rack I ordered. In other words, TMI. Returns. Hassle. But etrailer.com exchanged the lock and I ordered the right one. 551684

I bought a Thule replacement key from Etrailer and it didn't work. I called them with little expectations but to my surprise they were extremely helpful and courteous. Thanks to Sarah's assistance, I'm back in business. A business is only as good as their employees and Sarah gets a two thumbs up. She took what was a not so happy experience and turned it into a good day. Went biking yesterday.......thanks Sarah. 821929

We have used a few times and it is nice and solid. We actually got hit from behind and the original hitch saved a lot of damage to rear of car. The auto place replaced it and the same with new one. We are very happy with our purchase. 817828

After losing the hardware for my Thule rack, this was the perfect solution. The lock and threaded bolt fit perfectly into my (old) trailer hitch rack. The best part was the service and support from the etrailer team. They helped me find the right item right away. They understood what was needed and gave me excellent advice. This really made all the difference. Thank you! 817700

Well made product. Easy to install except I had to remove the trailer electric connection to give the bolt enough room to go through on my '07 Explorer. Should do the trick, which is basically a deterrent. The price was excellent as well. 806010

  • Replacement M12 Bolt, Washer, and Lock Washer for Thule Vertex Bike Rack 9029
    The replacement parts you asked about for your (discontinued) Thule Vertex Bike Rack 9029 are part # 908-1240-54 for the M12 Bolt, part # 951-1224-54 for the Washer, and part # 956122159 for the Lock Washer. The Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device # THSTL2 would work as well but if you don't want/need the lock you can use the parts mentioned above instead.

  • Replacement Thule 12mm Threaded Hitch Pin for Bike Racks
    All Thule bike racks use the same hitch pin, so you will want the Replacement Threaded Pin for Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device # 853-5917 or the complete pin and lock kit # THSTL2. This is the 12mm thread you mentioned.

  • Recommnded Trailer Hitch for Swing-Away Bike Rack On a 2011 Toyota RAV4
    The eTrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98864 is what I recommend you use on a 2011 Toyota RAV4 to carry a Thule hitch mounted bike rack such as the Thule Vertex Swing-Away part 9031XT. I took a look at the clearances needed for the Thule Vertex Swing-Away and the eTrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver will give you space between the rear spare tire so there won't be any issues. The eTrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver is a bolt-on option that is super easy to install as there are actually only...

  • Replacement Hitch Pin for a Thule Bike Rack with Lock
    Unfortunately, Thule's threaded hitch pins are proprietary and company specific, so the only one that will fit is another snug-tite kit, part # THSTL2. If you're only missing the hitch pin, you can reuse the lock, and get a new pin as part # 853-5917. New locks that will key-alike are available in a two pack as part # TH450200. You can get a new lock housing for an existing lock cylinder as part # 753-3725-02

  • Recommended Hitch Pin Lock For Thule Hitching Post Pro Bike Carrier
    Since bike carriers use thread-specific hitch pins, you will be limited when choosing a lock to secure the bike rack to your vehicle. Other manufacturer locking hitch pins will not fit the bike carrier you have. Since you purchased the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part # TH934XTR, the hitch pin lock you will need is the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock, part # THSTL2. This hitch pin lock includes an anti-rattle device and will work for many of the hitch-mounted Thule bike carriers. I have...

    The Thule Snug-Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device # THSTL2 will work fine with your Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier # TH665C. The Snug-Tite will both lock the carrier to your Sorento and also reduce the tendency for it to wobble and rattle in the hitch.

    Yes the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device part # THSTL2 can be used to replace your old inactive Thule bolt part # 853-5019--02. They share the same thread size and pitch and will be plenty long enough to secure your rack.

If you purchase the combo, both locks will be keyed alike, which is a nice feature that minimizes the number of keys to carry around.

  • Hitch Lock for a Thule Vertex Bike Rack
    When it comes to the Thule Vertex the only lock that is going to work is the Thule lock, # THSTL2. No locks from other brands, threaded or not, will fit. This is common for bike rack manufacturers in general and not just Thule.

  • Lock for Threaded Hitch Pin on a Yakima Kingpin Bike Rack
    No, the Thule Snug Tite lock # THSTL2 is not a confirmed fit for the Yakima Kingpin bike rack but you can use the Yakima lock # Y07235. This lock fits the threaded pin that came with the Kingpin bike rack. I have linked a video review of this lock for you.

  • Will Kuat Hitch Lock Work With Thule Bike Rack
    Locking hitch pins are threaded so they will only work with the racks they are designed for; so a Kuat lock will not thread onto the bolt of a Thule rack and a Thule lock won't work with a Kuat rack. So if you have a Thule bike rack the threaded hitch pin lock available from them is the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device # THSTL2.

  • How to Lock a Thule Bike Rack to a Trailer Hitch Receiver
    The Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device part # THSTL2 will be the only hitch lock we have that is confirmed to work with a Thule bike rack. The majority of hitch locks for bike racks are specific to that rack and cannot be exchanged for an alternative lock.

However, if it is a Thule bike rack then you will have to use...

  • Recommended Hitch Lock for Thule Bike Rack
    I do have a solution for you, however the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable # S64030 referenced in your question will not work with your Thule Bike Rack. As you mentioned, this is because Thule Bike Racks have very specific threads and bolt sizes that will only be compatible with Thule accessories. I instead recommend using the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock # THSTL2. This will be compatible with the shank on your bike rack and will also serve as an anti-rattle device to minimize movement...

  • Hitch Lock for a Kuat Bike carrier with 3/8 Inch Diameter Hitch Pin
    So the Thule Snug Tite lock # THSTL2 does not fit the Kuat pin because the Kuat pin is a 3/8 inch diameter. It is too small to fit the Thule lock. Kuat has a locking pin, # HL1. It fits 3/8 inch diameter pin holes. It has a useable length of 3-1/2 inches. The lock part is not available by itself.

  • Recommended Hitch Pin Lock For Thule Vertex Bike Rack
    For your Thule Vertex whether a 2 bike or a 4 bike tilting or swinging, the same lock is needed. It is the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device # THSTL2.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Lock for Thule Vertex Bike Rack
    Yes, the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock, # THSTL2, is the only anti-rattle device designed to fit the Thule Vertex bike racks other than the threaded hitch bolt that comes with the bike rack. The main advantage that you add with this kit over the anti-rattle bolt that comes with the rack is the hitch lock to secure the bike rack to the trailer hitch. If you are looking for a less expensive option to lock your bike rack to your vehicle, I recommend using a cable lock like part # TH538XT....

  • Fixing Thule Parkway 4 bike Rack That's Rattling In Vehicle Hitch
    Where exactly is the rattling occurring? If the looseness is between the 1-1/4 inch shank and the 2 inch adapter sleeve, make sure the Allen head screw that secures the sleeve onto the shank is fully tightened. You can try a wrap or two of electrical tape around the 1-1/4 inch shank to act as a shim and hopefully tighten things up a bit. If the rattle is between the 2 inch sleeve and the inside of your receiver tube, you'll need to snug up the hitch bolt a little bit so it fits more tightly....

  • Hitch Bolt Will Not Tighten with Thule Doubletrack Loaded in 2015 Subaru Forester Trailer Hitch
    Does the Thule Snug Tite lock # THSTL2 thread into and tighten up on your bike rack just fine? If so then it is possible that the threaded part of the bolt isn't long enough. Removing the washers will allow you to get a few extra threads which could be enough to get a bite and tighten the bolt. If the hitch receiver is wider or the wall thickness is greater than normal that could be the reason. If the bolt does not tighten in just the bike rack (not installed in the hitch) then the probable...
