Today, we're going to take a look at the Spare Tire Lock. Now this lock is designed to fit over wheel studs up to 9/16 of an inch in diameter and prevent any spare tire theft. It does use a locking tab which is a positive locking feature to keep the lock from turning. What you're going to do is put your . It comes with the two keys. Go ahead and put your key in there and just turn it a quarter of a turn and that'll release the tab. You can right here this tab is what'll install onto the stud.

Basically, you'll take one of the nuts off your wheel and tire subway that's on your spare tire holder and put this onto the stud and then put your lug nut back on here and tighten it down. It'll hold this tab into place. Then you'll take your lock and that'll go . Make sure it's open. That'll slide right on there.

I think it's a deterrent more than a prevention, but that's what I was looking for. If this was a commercial trailer with very expensive wheels stored in a yard or on a site I might want more. But for my utility stored at my home, this is perfect. 569753

Lock fits and secures the spare wheel to the camper perfectly. I am very pleased with the product. As usual, I can't say enough about the customer service I have received. I will certainly continue to buy from etrailer. Thanks again. 340908

I am still pleased with the lock. I love the peace of mind, knowing that my spare cannot be easily stolen.

This has been one the best investments I have made. My spare is safe and yet so easy for me to access. I give this lock a 5 star rating. It'd quality made and well worth the price. 563120

Time will tell on these... on the two I got, the key is somewhat difficult to insert, maybe some dry lube silicon or graphite? Hope its not something like a locking gas cap... 149789

Fit right up. Of course a thief could still just unbolt the spare tire rack from the rear bumper. Hopefully they would move on instead. 371492

I am disappointed that the two locks I ordered were both keyed alike. It makes me wonder how many more locks have the same key. 231552

This is a great product. I have a travel trailer that is parked on a hunting lease. There is a spare tire mounted on the rear of the trailer and it has been stolen twice. With this lock the tire is now secure. Thanks for everything. 101830

Great product, good price, perfect size, easy to install, installed it on my boat trailer spare now I don't have to worry about the tire being removed without a struggle. 99291

First of all the packaging this item arrived in was open on one end but the item looked fine, no scratches, dings or signs of wear. I carried it outside to my driveway and removed 1 of the 2 lug nuts from my trailer spare tire mount, I placed the smaller back half of the spare tire lock over the lug and hand tightened the lug nut until it made contact and seated against the spare tire. I then placed my 4-way lug wrench over the lug nut and gave it a free spin. The free spin was only about 1 and 1/2 spins since I had already hand tightened the lug nut. I began to turn the lug wrench by hand, 1/2 turn, feeling no resistance so I turned another 1/2 turn, still no resistance. On the 3rd 1/2 turn and still feeling little to no resistance, the back half of the spare tire lock spread and cracked which would not allow the locking cap to fit over it. after further inspection of the crack, I could see this was made of a soft pot metal (see uploaded image) and not of a stronger metal such as steel. This item broke under minimum tension, no way near the type of tension/torque one would use to install a lug nut on a mounted tire you would be driving on. I feel my money was wasted on this particular product. I have always been satisfied if not overjoyed with all of my past purchases from etrailer.com and am not blaming etrailer.com for this products shortcomings. 466106

I think the tire lock will deter the common thief, but not the person that is determine to take the spare tire. The lock appears to be strong and durable. I would recommend this item to a friend 59895

I used this on my tow dolly to lock my spare tire. Extremely easy to install. My bolt was longer so had to use the 'knock out' feature, again easy to do. 111708

Works as promised but my particular wheel has deep narrow sockets and did not allow attachment from the outside. Attaching from the inside solved the problem with equal security. Simple and effective. Love it. 552975

Mounted my spare tire lock today. I fits fairly snug, a little slack but not to much to matter. I think it will work fine as a theft deterrent for my spare tire on my flat bed trailer. I would buy again. 545590

At first I was a bit dismayed that the tire/wheel combo I ordered was unavailable. But I was offered a suitable substitute and the entire order was rapidly dispatched and received in a timely manner. I was very pleased with my order and the various items... so much so I immediately decided to order another wheel/tire combo for one of my trailers and use the two nice new wheels/tires intsead and use one of the old originals as the spare! Great products, fast service, super helpful customer service and they know their products! Thanks etrailer! I'll be doing business with you again real soon! 543763

  • Spare Tire and Lock Recommendations Between Fulton and Dutton-Lainson
  • Lock # 262DAT will fit both spare tire carriers # FSTC1000301 and # DL22120. It is designed to fit 1/2 inch wheel studs. The other lock you mentioned, # FSTL0603, is for 1/2 inch wheel studs. For a spare tire carrier I prefer the Dutton-Lainson carrier # DL22120 because it can fit taller frames (up to 3x5 inch) should you ever need it to and Dutton-Lainson does make a quality product.
