Review of the Master Lock Hitch Receiver and Coupler Latch Lock Set


AJ: What's up everybody. It's AJ with etrailer.com. Today we're checking out this hitch lock from Master Lock. Along with this coupler pin from Master Lock. These are going to be great working together, they come in a pack. This one's going to keep your ball mount locked to your hitch.

And then this pin for the coupler, it's going to go right through here when you lower it down on our ball. You can put that in there and lock it up and no one can mess with your stuff when it's connected. Let's get right to it and see how it works. HuhOne easy turn of the key, you can separate the tumbler from the pin. Let's run our pin through our two-inch hitch today.

Put the tumbler lock on the other side, you just push it in and it clicks and automatically locks. Move the key, put the dust cap back on. You see It's in there. Our ball Mount is not coming out. We went ahead and lowered our trailer down on our ball mount so we can check out the latch pin lock here.

It just goes through the existing hole in our latch and put the lock on the other side. Turn the key to actually lock it. Now it's not going to pull back out, it's in there. So no one can unlatch our trailer from our ball mount.I like that they come in the same pack together with the same set of keys. So both these keys are going to work with the latch pin and our hitch lock up here.

So that's handy just not to add a bunch of extra keys on your key ring, and you know, of course, I would think about a hitch lock and a lock on my ball mount, but I wouldn't necessarily think about this. I like this extra security of knowing that no one's going to mess with my trailer if I leave it unattended.Both the coupler latch pin and hitch lock are made out of stainless steel. So they're going to hold up if you leave them out in the elements, no problems there. I want to point out that this is adjustable too, so when I went to go put this through the latch, You can move it all the way to the latch and lock it there, or move it back out here and lock it. It's got grooves in there that help it be more customizable for what you can use. Also, sometimes there's a hole in the ball mount and you'll lock it that way. This will fit through there still, and you can lock it on the other side.I really liked the grip on this side. It's really easy to grab it and pull that pin out. It's better than just a regular hitch pin and clip on the other side. Sometimes, the longer you have those clips and you leave them out, they'll get a little rusty and be harder to actually pull out and you end up hitting your hand on something else, like the bumper or the ball mount itself when you're going full out. You don't have that with this. You just unlock it, grab this and pull it out.I liked that there's very little movement in the pin itself. There's not a lot of room in between the pin and the hitch. That's going to keep people honest, keep them from getting in there and messing with it. There's not much room for them to work with. Another thing is that the tumbler moves up and down itself, and I like that because when you go to put a key in there, your hitch might be different, you might have less room. If you can barely fit in there like that or something, sometimes they don't move and they stay in that place. It will be hard to get that key in there that way. But now I can just tilt it up and get the key in there nice and easy.And again, it's the same key. You just put it in there, in the tumbler, turn it. It'll come out just that easy. I'll show you the handle too, again on this side. Easy to push in, easy to grab and grip and pull right out.Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. It works just fine, it was easy to use, I like that it comes with the same keys as you're going to work with the latch pin lock and the hitch pin lock. So it's kind of a one-stop shop deal, and I like that. So that does it for our look at the Master Lock hitch pin lock and latch lock. Hope this helped.
