Very nice design for a 2.5" Receiver. The key locks a threaded connection, not a gate type lock. My old Master Lock froze up terribly over time. I hope this will not, but time will tell. Looks good on my 2017 F250 Super Duty. 392299

It works well enough, but is a pia to use...to take off and to put on. The key does not unlock the system like a normal lock. What it does is allow you to screw that head piece with the key in it onto the shaft.It's more secure than a regular pin, but a determined thief is going to get past it. It really is more to dissuade an opportunity thief from stealing your rig...but it won't stop a pro. 686371

This product is exactly what I needed for my Toyota Tacoma truck. The previous item that I had purchased, and subsequently returned, wasn't long enough to go through the hitch receiver and be locked. The RG5-XL was actually long enough and I put a water hose rubber gasket on both ends before and after going through the hitch to "snug it up" so It wouldn't rattle. Very Happy with this product and my hitch item won't get stolen. 653091

Works great for me. I have to park my boat and trailer outside for a few months and the combination locks add to security for them. 720065

The keyed end unscrews, it’s not like a lock that you turn 90 degrees and it pops off, you put the key in and just unscrew the end cap. Seems to work ok, extra long so I don’t have to worry about too tight a fit side to side. 686436

Before ordering the locking hitch pin online I spoke with etrailer customer service. Extremely helpful customer service. I ordered the product for a 2015 Tundra Platinum. Pin was oversized like I needed, and was not a problem. Put a couple of rubber washers on each side of the pin to help with the slack and noise caused by vibration. Works like a champ. Love the key system on this pin. I would recommend it for Tundra owners who have the oversized heavy duty factory hitch on their truck. Etrailer shipped the product very quickly and had excellent follow up communications after the sale. I would not hesitate to buy from etrailer again. 325738

etrailer provided a nice locking pin. It's solid, sturdy and made to secure the mount. After reading the measurements, and once it was delivered I was a little disappointed to see that I still had 3/4 of an inch play. I just added some spacers to keep it from "clanking" back and forth. Overall, happy with my purchase from etrailer and the products they provide. thanks. 706914
