Hitch Lock and Stabilizing Straps for Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153


Hi, Can I use this pin Item # 853-5210-02 with this carrier? Also, can you recommend a securing cable that I can attach to the carrier and the receiving hitch securing holes? I just want to make sure that the carrier is attached to the car in case the carrier bracks.

There is a security hitch pin for you to use with Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 the # 853-5210-02 you referenced is for Thule bike carriers and load bars. Instead you could secure the cargo carrier to your hitch with the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232.

The carrier will not break but for peace of mind I do recommend using Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap # 18050. This will give your carrier the extra support you're looking for; I've linked a video which shows exactly how the strap works so you can see for yourself.
