Ordered this item in late December, specifically because it is described as "rustproof, stainless steel." After only a few months use, on a vehicle that is garage kept and also kept very clean, it is already starting to rust. etrailer.com will only replace if I cover the shipping to send it back to them first. IMO, etrailer.com should do better to back the products that they sell. I don't wish to spend any more money, even if it is only shipping cost, to get a replacement that will likely do the same thing. NOT RUSTPROOF.

Best hitch I’ve ever used. Was in Florida and needed work on trailer. when I went to pick it up the owner wanted to see how it works. He was very impressed and was going to contact about selling them at his place.



- e98882
by:

ETrailer staff is great to deal with. All are very knowledgeable and helpful as well as super friendly. Great to do business with and I recommend them very high.


Comments
My lock is still working great, I highly recommend it.

Nice and tight fit. Feels sturdy. I was expecting a quarter turn key lock/unlock, but it is actually a screw design. Have to turn the keylock until it unthreads from the hitch pin. Easy to use though. I had to use an oring to get the super snug fit I was looking for to reduce rattling.



- e98882
by:

I am quite pleased at the ease of use and I don't worry about forgetting to stow the hitch or losing the cotter pin anymore. It met my expectaions, not exceeding them.



- e98882
by:

Worked perfectly and love the fact that these can be ordered as keyed alike. Being stainless steel, they should last the lifetime of the truck. As you can see in the pictures, I have a class III receiver hitch welded to the Iron Bull brand front and the rear bumpers and employ your receiver locks to secure my front license plate and the chrome and black Colorado cap in the rear when I am not using the hitch to pull my bass boat.



- e98882
by:

This fits perfectly on a standard 2" receiver. The rubber cap over the key slot seems to be very strong and should keep the elements out of the lock quite well. My initial impression is that this is a very high quality hitch lock. I got this lock to go with a WeatherTech hitch step, and it all looks very clean on the vehicle.



- e98882
by:

The hitch receiver lock offers a nice secure fit. I questioned if the spacing closed would be to tight with my 2" receiver; Melissa assured me that sizing would be ok and it fits perfectly! Great to deal with a knowledgeable sales staff!



- e98882
by:

Very sturdy receiver lock, however, it didn't fit my hitch.


Comments
Yes, this hitch lock has a diameter of 5 eights and an inside pin length of 2 and 5 eights inches. If you need just a tad bit bigger where is one with the same diameter but 3 and 5 eights long: Item # e98881.

by:

I have been pulling boat and ATV trailers for 45 years and have had numerous trailer receiver locks and this one is by far the best. It sits tight to the hitch so nobody can insert a pry bar to try to remove it. It is stainless steel and very well built and I dont think I will ever need another one. If you buy this etrailer receiver lock you will not regret it

Very happy with these receiver locks

I am still happy

A little tight getting the key in the lock....not your fault my GMC Denali did not design the trailer hitch opening big enough.....like the product...thanks

Seems like a great lock for a rack I haven’t yet purchased!



- e98882
by:

It's worked well. It's been in and out of salt water several times and fresh water many times while launching the boat and the locking mechanism is still working.



- e98882
by:

Looks great! Fits perfect. Operates and functions as reported. It will secure my ball mount for sure. I have it mounted on a DrawTite Class III #75238 which is attached to my new 2017 Tacoma. Thank you ETrailer.com.....you are awesome!



- e98882
by:

The product itself appears to be high quality. Made in the USA was nice to see. Residue from the packaging tape remained on the lock, so I had to scrub that off.



- e98882
by:

Looks good after 1 year. Did develop some rust staining, but that is likely to have bled from the hitch itself. Worth the investment.



- e98882
by:

Much better than older types that I have used; like the added rubber grip. Again, will be for soon future trailer living.



- e98882
by:

Fits good in hitch. Used between my WDH and also a cargo carrier from time to time.



- e98882
by:

Pin is not long enough for my 2011 Toyota Tundra. It works on my Chevy pick up.



- e98882
by:

Like the way it stows, so I don’t hit my shin on the hitch. Heavy duty.



- e98882
by:

This is the perfect piece to lock our rack to our tow hitch. Roger at etrailer.com was very helpful in getting us the right product. Great service



- e98882
by:

This matched so beautifully with the USMC hitch!



- e98882
by:

Fits perfectly on a 2015 RAM 1500 factory hitch.



- e98882
by:

I really like the solid design and threaded locking mechanism. Seems very well made and fits my 1997 Tahoe factory hitch perfectly! I don’t tow all that often but wanted a way to secure the Chevy Bow Tie emblem when I’m not towing my boat.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Hitch Lock

  • Will this Hitch Receiver Lock Fit on My 2016 Toyota 4Runner?
    Your 2016 Toyota 4Runner comes from the factory with a 2" hitch installed which means that this etrailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98882 should fit. Now I say 'should' because we have noticed with Toyota vehicles that sometimes they come into etrailer and we see that they have double-walled or added extra support to their factory hitch receivers. This is not super common and your 2016 4Runner should be the standard 2" hitch. Just in case, you can measure the outside of your hitch receiver...

  • Keyed Alike Trailer Hitch Receiver Locks With 5/8 Inch Diameter Pin
    For keyed alike trailer hitch receiver locks, I recommend our etrailer.com Hitch Receiver Lock - Stainless Steel Flush Design for 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver, # e98882. From the product page under the shipping weight, you can select keyed alike and how many you would like keyed alike.

  • Will etrailer.com Hitch Lock # e98882 Fit Hidden Hitch Ball Mount # 80412
    Yes, the etrailer.com Hitch Lock # e98882 fits perfectly with the MaxxTow Hitch # MT70067. The hitch lock tightens up flush against the hitch so you will not have any issues using this combination. I have attached a video.

  • Does Hitch Lock # e98882 Have Weight Capacity
    Hitch pins and hitch pin locks like the part # e98882 that you referenced don't actually bear any weight when used with a ball mount so they don't have weight capacities. The downward force of the tongue weight of the trailer is so great that the ball mount is pinned into the hitch so hard that none of the weight is put on the hitch pin.

  • Hitch Pin Lock for Use with Curt Hitch for 2012 Toyota Prius c
    The pin holes of 1-1/4 inch hitches like the Curt # C11484 you have for your 2012 Toyota Prius c require a pins/locks that have a 1/2 inch diameter. So what you'd need instead would be the part # e98879 which has this pin diameter like you need.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver Locking Hitch Pin for Trailer Security
    Our most popular trailer hitch receiver lock that fits your 2 inch receiver is # e98882. It has a pick-proof screw-and-lock design for security. Also, the pin and lock housing is made of stainless steel to withstand the elements and the key slot has a cover to prevent corrosion.

  • Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Cargo Carrier
    Curt steel hitch cargo carrier # C18153 has a shipping weight of 71-lbs. Their aluminum carrier # C18100 has a shipping weight of 29-lbs (because it is lightweight aluminum rather than steel). The low-cost Stromberg Carlson steel cargo carrier # CC-100 has a shipping weight of 40-lbs. The weight differences are due to the different materials used and the fact that the Stromberg Carlson carrier does not fold up, so it does not have the added weight that comes from a folding hinge mechanism.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Lock for Fleet of 3/4 Ton GM Trucks
    The best keyed alike hitch pin lock we have for your fleet of thirty 2017-2018 GMC Sierra 2500's is the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # e98882 for 2" or part # e98881 for 2-1/2" receiver tubes. If the fleet has both 2" and 2-1/2" receiver tubes then I recommend part # e98881 as it can be used on both. The above trailer hitch lock is machined from hardened steel for strength and has a chrome finish for rust resistance. It comes with two keys and a dust cap to protect the lock core....

  • Do Locking Hitch Pins have a Towing Capacity and Multiple Hitch and Coupler Locks Keyed Alike
    Trailer hitch lock # e98882 does not have an official weight capacity because it exceeds what the trailer hitches are capable of (for Class III and IV hitches). So it can handle a 10,000 pound trailer or more. The diameter of the thicker ends of this lock are approximately 1 inch. Lock # e98890 is a coupler latch lock. The diameter of the pin is 1/4 inch. The length of the pin is 7/8 inches. The ends are 1 inch in diameter as well. Since this is for the trailer coupler it would not interfere...

  • What Differences Between etrailer Locking Hitch Pin e98880 and e98882
    There's not really a reason other than personal preference between the chrome finish # e98880 and the stainless steel # e98882; I happen to prefer the stainless steel option but the chrome does give you a bit nicer finish on the lock which is important to some users. Both locks will do a great job of fighting off corrosion and they can both be keyed alike to other etrailer locks.

  • What Hitch Locks Are Good For Resisting Rust And Corrosion
    Yes, you are correct the best hitch lock to prevent rust and corrosion is the stainless steel lock. The stainless steel locks will not corrode. The Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Stainless Steel Flush Design, # e98882, is one of our top sellers. The price difference is only a few dollars from the chrome to the stainless steel so it is definitely the better buy. The other choice for a stainless steel lock is the Master Lock Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, # 1480DAT, it is also stainless...

  • Hitch Pin Lock Recommendation for a 2012 Toyota Sequoia
    Sounds like you may have a j-pin style anti-rattle device like part # 63201 and now have a hitch that doesn't have the second hole near the hitch pin hole for it to work. The hitch pin lock part # e98882 would work well for you as long as you have a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2012 Toyota Sequoia.

  • Do Standard Hitch Pins Work with Hitch Mounted Winches
    I spoke with my contact at Superwinch and he informed me that a standard hitch pin would work well for you. They (and us), have never heard of a standard hitch pin breaking from the stress of being used with a hitch mounted winch. Our most popular hitch lock that would fit and work well is part # e98882 which would be a great option. This lock is made of stainless steel so it is incredibly strong. I attached a review video for the lock for you to check out as well.

    A stainless steel hitch lock, such as the etrailer.com lock # e98882 for 2 inch hitch receivers, can absolutely be used on powder coated steel trailer hitches. There will be no compatibility issues between the metals when in use.

    For a locking hitch pin to secure your Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount # C45331 to your trailer hitch, I recommend the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98882. This is a great stainless steel lock designed for 2 inch trailer hitches. It features a pick-proof screw-and-lock design that will prevent theft of your ball mount or other hitch-mounted accessory.

  • Can a Hitch Lock be Used in Place of a Hitch Pin and Safely Tow a Boat Trailer
    It sounds like you want to use the hitch lock, like # e98882, in place of a regular hitch pin. Yes, you can absolutely use the lock instead of a hitch pin and it will work great to safely transport the trailer and boat. The hitch lock does not have an official rating but in reality its capacity is much higher than the tow vehicle or trailer hitch. I have linked a video review of this lock for you.

    Hitch pins like the # e98882 do not carry specific weight ratings. They have more than enough capacity to match that of the hitch in which they will be used because they do not bear the weight of the trailer since the tongue weight pins the mount into the hitch tube.
