Weigh Safe Hitch Locks - Standard Pin Lock - WS05 Review


Jeff: Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at trailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at this Weigh Safe 5/8" Diameter Stainless Steel Hitch Receiver Lock for 2", 2-1/2", and 3" Hitch Receivers.Now, you'd use this in place of your standard pin and clip on your hitch receiver. This lock would prevent somebody from taking your ball mount or your hitch accessory like a bike rack or cargo carrier. It is a nice stainless steel pin and lock construction. Does use a high strength ball interlock design to lock it.

And if you notice on the end here it has this nice cover to key slot with the rubber cap to prevent any rust and corrosion. You just put that over the lock, prevents any dirt from getting into the lock cylinder. It is a tube key lock cylinder, which will provide a lot better security than your standard key lock cylinder. The tube key cylinder will make it harder to pick, more difficult to duplicate keys.Does come with two keys with this, and again, it's a very easy to use design. Just requires a quarter of a turn of the key to unlock it and remove it, and to install it, just slide it right back on.

Turn it a quarter of a turn. Remove the key, put your cover on, it's locked into place.Application, this again is for 2" by 2", 2-1/2" by 2-1/2", and 3" by 3" hitch receiver. The pin diameter is 5/8". Overall length from one end to the other, if we put a ruler on that, you can see is going to be right at 6". The inner span or the inside span or what they call the usable length, which is the measurement in here, this is going to be right at about 3-1/2".

And what I'm going to do now is, let me zoom out just a little bit, I'm going to pull up a 2" by 2" hitch receiver. It has a ball mount in it, you can see right here, and it's using your standard pin and clip.So what you want to do is anybody could come along and just pull off your clip, pull out your pin, and then remove whatever you have in your hitch, either the ball mount or your hitch accessory. What you want to do with this is like we mentioned, take the cap off, put your key in there, turn it a quarter of a turn, unlock it, slide this through, all the way in. Put it on there, turn it a quarter of a turn to lock it. Then you can see it's locked in place.

Put your cover on there to protect it, and then nobody can just pull your ball mount or your accessory out. It's locked there unless you have the keys to remove it. And to remove it again, just put your . quarter of a turn removes it, and just like that, very simple installation.But that should do it for the review on the Weigh Safe 5/8" Diameter Stainless Steel Hitch Receiver Lock for the 2", 2-1/2", and 3" Hitch Receivers.
