Expert Answers about Deadbolt

  • Recommendation to Prevent Trailer Theft by Using Safety Chains
  • It is possible to move a trailer by just attaching to it's safety cables. Most people would avoid the method you described as the trailer will slam into the back of the tow vehicle while stopping. Basically it wouldn't be a thief's ideal method for theft of a trailer but it would be an option. As a way to prevent that type of theft I would recommend a wheel lock like the part # RA-25. This will attach to your rim and will make it nearly impossible to move the trailer. Check out the review...

  • Getting Keyed Alike Locksets for Hitch, Coupler and Cable Locks
  • Yes, you can get all of the locks you have mentioned keyed alike as long as you order from our Keyed Alike locks page. If you order all the locks you need at the same time they will come keyed alike. If you decide you need another lock keyed the same later you can call our customer service line at 1-800-298-8924 and request a lock, as long as it is on our Keyed Alike locks page, with the same key by giving them the key number you have.

  • 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 Deadbolt Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Stainless Steel Flush Design, # 40107, 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...

  • Recommendation For Locks To Prevent Theft Of A Camper Trailer
  • If you are wanting to lock the trailer to your 2002 Isuzu Trooper and you have a 2 inch hitch receiver, I would recommend the DeadBolt Trailer Hitch Receiver And Coupler Lockset, part # 7685. This is a set of locks that will lock the ball mount to your tow vehicles 2 inch hitch and also lock the trailers coupler to the hitch ball. Both of the locks can be keyed alike, so only one key is needed for both locks. Locking your trailer at both connections will add time when somebody is trying...

  • How to Determine the Hitch Size for Hitch locks
  • To determine the size of the receiver lock you will need you need to determine the size (see link below) of the receiver on your vehicle and you also need to measure the overall width of the outside of the receiver at the hitch pin hole. If you have a class I or class II receiver you will need a 1-1/4 inch receiver lock and if you have a class III receiver or larger you will need a 2 inch receiver, then you need to make sure the inside width of the receiver lock is at least as wide as the...

  • What is the Most Secure Trailer Hitch Lock Design
  • As far as actually picking a lock a hitch lock that uses a barrel key would be a little more secure than a flat key model. And in terms of physically cutting the lock a flush mount model that has ends that butt up against the outsides of the hitch receiver would be more secure than one that has the pin portion exposed. Lock set # 7685 includes a flush mount, barrel key design for 2 inch trailer hitches and a second lock for trailer coupler latches. Both locks are keyed the same. For...

  • How to Unlock the Dead Bold Hitch Lock # 7683
  • Sorry to hear about your husband. To unlock and remove the end of the Dead Bold Hitch Lock part # 7683 you will need to insert the key into the lock core and then start turning the key counter clockwise to un-screw the end section of the lock from the rest of it. To see exactly how this is done check out the video I attached. Fast forward to the 1:20 section to see how it comes apart.

  • Trailer Coupler Lock For Pintle Hook / Hitch
  • We have a few options that you may wish to consider. If you are looking for a lock for the hook or hitch alone, I would recommend the Trailer Coupler Lock - Deadbolt Style, part # 7692. This lock has a 1/4 inch diameter pin that is 2-1/2 inches long and has a covered key slot that prevents corrosion. Another trailer coupler lock I would recommend would be the Master Lock Adjustable Trailer Coupler Lock, part # 2847DAT. This coupler lock has a 2 inch shaft and may provide a more snug...

  • Locking Trailer Hitch Pin for Wider Toyota Tacoma OEM 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • Toyota and some Ford and Chevy OEM trailer hitches have that extra piece on the outside of the hitch and they require a different, longer locking hitch pin. Since we found out about this a few years ago we have added the note on the product page mentioning the issue. But not to worry because there are other locks that will fit. You can use hitch lock # RH5-XL which has an inner span of 3-5/8 inches and will be long enough for your Toyota hitch. I have included a link to a video review...

TowReady lock # TR63253 features a stainless-steel pin and a chrome-plated lock assembly. The linked video will help to illustrate its features and operation.

  • How Theft-Proof is the Deadbolt Trailer Coupler Lock # 28012
  • Locks are for keeping honest folks honest, just about any lock can eventually be defeated if the crook is determined enough. The lock you mention, part # 28012 would provide what I would call minimal deterrence against theft. If there are two identical boat trailers parked side by side, one using the # 28012 lock, and the other unlocked, the 20812 will do its job and deter the crook from taking your trailer. One quick snip with some bolt cutters, and the lock will be defeated, but the...

  • The DeadBolt Lock, item # RC6, has a shank diameter of 1/4 inch and span of 7/8 inches, if these dimensions will work for the cover latch on your snowmobile trailer cover, then the lock should work. You may want to consider the DeadBolt Lock Stainless Steel , item # RC6SS, for maximum weather protection and corrosion resistance, If these locks will not work for your latch we also have the Kuat Bike Rack Hitch Lock, item # KUATLOCK, which has a 3/8 inch diameter Pin and may work better...

  • Removing Corroded Hitch Lock
  • If liquid wrench or a WD-40 or PB Blaster type product did not work, you will have to cut off the lock. I have taken them off with little difficulty using a Dremel Tool or an angle grinder with a cut-off wheel. Make sure to wear eye protection. Some will recommend trying a torch to heat the lock, but that will just mess up the tumblers and you will have to cut it off eventually.

  • How To Order Stainless Steel Hitch Locks and Coupler Locks to be Keyed Alike
  • For stainless steel coupler lock and hitch receiver lock that can be keyed alike, I would recommend the DeadBolt brand of locks. They offer the DeadBolt Stainless Steel 2 Inch Hitch Receiver Lock, part # 40107, which will fit most 2 inch hitch receivers, and has an inside width of 2-5/8 inches. For coupler locks they offer the DeadBolt Stainless Steel 7/8 Inch Span Coupler Lock, part # RC6SS, which has an inside width of 7/8-inch, and the DeadBolt Stainless Steel 1/2 Inch Span Coupler...

  • Deadbolt Lock Recommendation For UFP A-60 Trailer Coupler
  • If you have a coupler like the UFP A-60, I recommend the Deadbolt Style for Surge Brake Couplers, part # 28012. This simply replaces the pin in the coupler and when locked will prevent the coupler from being used. The typical coupler locks like part # DT25013KA, or part # BLTL-33, are not designed to work with the A-60 coupler.

  • Will the Dead Bolt Spare Tire Lock # 4324 Work with a Wheel and Tire Rack or Just Block A Stud Hole
  • The Dead Bolt Spare Tire Lock, # 4324, is designed to block one of the stud holes in the wheel. The adjustable design of the lock will fit rims from 1/4 to 7/8 inches thick so it may be possible to use it to lock a wheel to a spare tire rack of carrier. As long as the thickness of the wheel and rack or carrier are less than 7/8 inches thick, this lock should work to secure the wheel. I produced a short video showing the Dead Bolt spare tire lock and a wheel, # AM20352 and spare tire...

  • Cable Lock Recommendation for Securing Generator in Bed of Truck
  • That really depends on the length of cable that you need. If you only need 10 feet of cable the part # CAB-10 would be perfect. I can't imagine needing more than that so I would recommend this one. This is our most popular cable lock that we recommend so it would be an excellent choice.

  • DeadBolt Hitch Lock Replacement Key
  • Not all of the DeadBolt locks will have a key number stamped on them. If your lock does have a key number, it would be stamped into the metal on the face of the lock adjacent to the key slot, as shown in the photo I edited for you. Unfortunately, we cannot obtain replacement keys without knowing the key number. If you do not have the number, you can have a locksmith pick it, or you can use an angle grinder with a cut off wheel to cut the lock off.

  • Spare Tire Lock for 2013 Jeep Wrangler
  • If your spare tire has at least 3/4 inches of clearance behind it, and you have an available lug opening that passes through the carrier on the vehicle, the Deadbolt # 4324 would work very well for you. The Master Lock spare tire lock, part # 262DAT would also be an option. The lock prevents access to the head of the nut or bolt that retains the spare tire to the carrier attached to the rear of the vehicle.

  • Coupler Lock Recommendation for a Demco Coupler
  • I really wish we had a coupler lock in the dimensions you listed, but the closest thing we offer is the part # 28012 that you referenced that has a 1/4 inch diameter pin that is 3-3/8 inches long. The difference would only be 1/16 of an inch so this lock should still work for you. There's no reason it wouldn't. Another option you have is a coupler lock like the part # DT25013KA. This lock can fit nearly any coupler and should work well for you.

  • 1/2 inch Diameter Locking Hitch Pin Recommendation
  • For a locking hitch pin with a 1/2 inch diameter that would be long enough to work in a 2 inch receiver check out the Tow Ready Base Rail Lock for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # TR63254. This has a 1/2 inch diameter and has an inside length of 3-1/8 inches. Check out the review video I attached for this product as well.

  • Availability of a 3/4-Inch Thick 10-Foot Cable Lock
  • The majority of cable locks we offer are substantially smaller in diameter than the 3/4-inch size you are looking for. We do offer various lengths of 3/8-inch diameter cables (some on their own and others with locks) such as the Master Lock # 8256DAT. This is the largest diameter we offer in 8-foot or greater length. We also offer the Master Lock Quantum 30 Armored Steel Cable Lock # 8218DPS which is a substantial 1-3/16-inches thick but this part is only 6-feet in length. Perhaps two units...

  • Will the Dead Bolt Spare Tire Lock # 4324 Work On the Spare Wheel on a 2009 Jeep Wrangler Sahara
  • As long as there is an open lug bolt opening in the wheel that has 3/4 inches of clearance behind it on your 2009 Jeep Wrangler Sahara rear mounted spare wheel you will be able to use the Dead Bolt Spare Tire Lock, item # 4324. I have added a photo showing how the lock is attached and the distance from the back of the wheel to the farthest part of the lock. If the wheel mounting bracket at the back of the Jeep covers all of the bolt holes the Dead Bolt Spare Tire Lock # 4324 will not work.

  • Can Dead Bolt Spare Tire Lock # 4324 Be Used With Smittybilt SRC Oversize Tire Carrier Part 2743
  • According to my contact at Smittybilt their SRC Oversize Tire Carrier Part 2743 can be used with a lock, but it has to be a standard padlock with a U-shaped shackle. Dead Bolt Spare Tire Lock # 4324 will not work. You can use a padlock such as Master Lock # 131D or Roadmaster # RM-305, which has a extra long shackle.

  • 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 Deadbolt hitch lock, # 40107, 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.

  • Shear Capacity For Locking Hitch Pins
  • I spoke with my contact at one of our suppliers for locking hitch pins and asked about the shear rating. They told me that when they use cold-rolled steel, for 1-1/4 inch hitch receivers the shear rating is 3,000 lbs. For 2 inch receivers like part # 7683, that number jumps to 10,000 lbs, and for Class V receivers the number is 18,000 lbs.
