Great quality lock. Great price. I shopped everywhere local and online. This is a great deal. Bought it for securing my bike and bike cover to the hitch-mounted bike rack on the back of my motorhome. I also purchased the hitch-mounted bike rack from ETrailer. ETrailer is awesome.

Was worried the 10 foot one would be bulky and all over the place, but it turned out to be the perfect size. Able to lock both wheels and weave through the frame with some slack to spare. Thankfully can't speak to how well it takes abuse, but it feels sturdy enough to convince a would be thief to pick the next bike over.

Love that I have it keyed to match my other trailer locks. Its a little bit of extra work to screw it on and off versus a traditional style lock, but its worth it. I highly recommend it.

I like the length and the key for extra security when my bikes are in the truck. Works great .

Great lock . Extremely sturdy construction and easy to unlock.

by:

I ordered pick up truck bed bike rack and a ten foot locking cable to secure the bikes. Both products are well made and the bike rack was easy to install. The locking can be used for many applications. I will probably purchase another one. I would recommend these items.



- e98891
by:

Nice product. I like the length--perfect for locking the bikes up while on the bike rack. On the Curt bike rack, I am able to thread this cable through the bikes, through the security ring on the rack, and through the chain ring on the trailer hitch so that all three are locked up.



- e98891
by:

Works great as expected. Timely delivery, secure packaging.



- e98891
by:

Sturdy and secure! Will definitely provide confidence when bikes are left on temporarily left on rack.



- e98891
by:

The only concern I have with my order is that when I installed the rack to the hitch it was not stable. When I drive the rack seem to move around without the bikes even on the rack. I have to figure out if i need another part to secure the rack. Overall I am happy with the product and the price it was sold for.



- e98891
by:

Survived a whole winter outside in the snow. I recommend a touch of grease or neverseize on the threads to keep lubricated if you will leave it locked for an extended period.



- e98891
by:

It’s very sturdy, holds 2 bicycles, no issues



- e98891
by:

What can I say - it's a lock. Use it on my bike carrier to secure bikes to the hitch. I fish through the safety chain loop on the hitch and through the frames of the bikes. So far I've only used it to secure two bikes. It's probably long enough to secure three bikes on a tray style bike rack, but doubt it could do 4 bikes.

This is a great bicycle lock. It is long enough to secure 4 bikes on my receiver hitch carrier or in the back of my truck. It doesn't show any signs of wear after a year, the lock still works great. Just used it this weekend while camping.

Just received it and have not tried it yet. It appears to be a worthy product that will serve its purpose. Good price point.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Cable Locks

  • Recommended Cable Lock for the Reese Explore 4 Bike Rack
    I recommend using the etrailer 10' Long Cable Lock # e98891 to lock your bikes to the Reese Explore 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # 63124. Basically you'll need something that can go through the frames of all 4 bikes and then be secured on a point that isn't removable like the safety chain loop on your trailer hitch. The 10' of cable might seem a little excessive but sometimes it can feel like a puzzle getting the cable routed just right and this will make it easier on where you can route...

  • Will a Cable Lock Keep My Bikes Safe or Can Someone Just Cut It Off?
    Honestly, it would be pretty easy for someone with bolt cutters to cut through the cable lock you mentioned, # e98891. Locks in general are not a guarantee against theft, but a deterrent. If someone is determined to take your personal belongings, a lock is not going to stop them. But, if you have entwined a cable lock through your bikes, a thief will most likely move on to an easier target rather than fiddle with unwrapping your cable lock. If you are looking for a sturdy cable lock,...

  • Needing A Long Cable To Lock 4 Bikes To My Bike Rack
    Part # 8870070 is actually just the Replacement Lock Housing for Yakima BoatLocker and LockUp # Y07238 Cable Lock and not the actual cable lock. What you need is the etrailer 10' Long Cable Lock # e98891. This cable is extremely long and will fit around your 4 bikes!

  • Recommended Cable Lock For MaxxHaul Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier
    We do not have a hitch pin lock that will work with the MaxxHaul Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, but I do have a solution for you. I recommend using a cable lock to secure both the carrier and the bikes when on the carrier. The cable lock I recommend is the 10-FT' Long Cable Lock, part # e98891. You can run the cable through the safety chain tabs on your trailer hitch and wrap it around the bikes as well to help deter theft.

  • Where to Attach a Cable Lock to a Trailer Hitch to Secure a Bike Rack
    When attaching a cable lock such as # e98891 to a trailer hitch you would run it through the safety chain loops that are on the sides of the receiver. You would still use the regular hitch pin or bolt to secure the carrier in the hitch. I have included a picture pointing out a safety chain loop.

    The Torx wrench required to remove the integral cable lock on the Transfer 2 bike rack TS02G is not one commonly found in hardware stores, according to my contact at Kuat. But yes, this is what is required to remove the cable lock from the rack.

    I may have a solution for you, however the Yakima Locking Mount Brackets with SKS Cores # Y07064 referenced in your question are designed to fit Yakima products that use SKS locks. Looking at the mounting hardware for the Curt Cargo Baskets, the Yakima racks will not be compatible and will not work to lock the basket to the factory roof rack on your Honda CR-V.

  • Cable Lock Recommendation for Securing Generator in Bed of Truck
    That really depends on the length of cable that you need. If you only need 10 feet of cable the part # e98891 would be perfect. I can't imagine needing more than that so I would recommend this one. This is our most popular cable lock that we recommend so it would be an excellent choice.

  • Recommended Cable Lock to Deter Theft of a Honda 2200 Generator on Rear of Travel Trailer
    The 10' Long Cable Lock # e98891 is a versatile cable lock to secure your Honda 2200 Generator to your travel trailer. There isn't a cable lock that can deter a motivated thief, but the Master Lock Quantum 30 Armored Steel Cable Lock - 6' Long x 1-3/16" Diameter # 8218DPS is my recommendation to make them reconsider their choices. I'd also route the cable through the safety chain loop of the hitch.

    Curt does not have a key replacement for your bike rack but I have a solution.

With one lock you are able to secure your bikes to your rack and your rack to your car. I attached a video below of the cable lock.

  • Adding a Bike Lock to a Thule Hitch Bike Rack Without Integrated Bike Locks

This is a 10 ft long plastic coated steel strand cable that can be used to secure the bikes to the carrier. The key cylinder is covered to keep dirt and moisture out.
