How Does Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitch 336VS501 Deter Theft  


How do you lock down a Lock N Roll so that a theif could not simply walk up connect and drive off?


Expert Reply:

The vehicle side of the Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitch # 336VS501 can be locked to the vehicle's 2-inch receiver hitch using any standard pin lock such as # e98880.

The mating part that bolts or welds on to the trailer # 336TS508 will only couple to the Lock N Roll system. Unlike a traditional ball coupler, which is compatible with any hitch ball of a matching size, the trailer-side Lock 'N' Roll coupler can only connect to a vehicle-side Lock 'N' Roll hitch. So your trailer cannot be towed away unless it's connected to a vehicle with a Lock 'N' Roll hitch installed.

Please refer to the linked video for more on this unique USA-made coupler system.

Is there a 1/2" diameter, 4" span locking pin available for the clips on the receiver of the lock and roll hitch? Thanks

There's not a hitch lock available that I recommend using for the clips (in place of the included bolt/nut) on the Lock N Roll Receiver # 336VS501. A locking pin just wouldn't provide the proper tightening/torque that's needed for that clip.
