Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Hitch Pins and Clips - Standard Hitch Pin - 325-GH-099

Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at Today, we're gonna take a look at the Gen-Y Hitch 5/8 inch diameter stainless steel pin and clip for a 2 1/2 inch and three inch hitches. Now, this hitch pin will secure your ball mount or other hitch mounted accessory in your trailer hitch receiver. This one does include the nice twist clip design, which inserts into the end of the pin right here in this hole to hold your pin in place. Now, I do wanna go over this twist clip design.

It's a little different than your standard clip that you'll see on hitch pins. Your standard clip, I happen to pull one, is your straight, push-on clip. And sometimes those can be difficult to push it on and sometimes hard to pull off. This twist clip makes it so much easier. What's nice about it is when you go to install it, you just put it on like this, push it.

And when you push it, it'll twist into place and lock into place. You're ready to go. And very easy to remove. All you have to do is twist this and it comes right out. So, installing this clip is a lot simpler using this new twist clip design.

Now, this is a sturdy stainless steel construction. It is made in the USA. Application, this pin will fit 2 1/2 inch and three inch trailer hitch receivers. The pin diameter size is 5/8 of an inch. Overall length, end to end is gonna be right at 5 1/4 inches.

The usable length, which basically will be from under the head here to where that clip hole starts, where the clip will go. And you can see that's gonna be right at four inches of usable length. Now, one thing I do wanna mention is that this is for the 2 1/2 inch and three inch hitches. If you want one for two inch hitches, we do sell one separately. It's a little bit shorter in length and we sell that on our website. It's part number 325-GH-096. But that should do it for the review on this Gen-Y Hitch 5/8 inch diameter stainless steel pin and clip for 2 1/2 inch and three inch hitches..

Great hitch. I was just a dummy and lost a pin. I could have put any pin in there but I wanted the quality one that came with the hitch


The box was shipped with a heavy item in the bottom and 8 marker lights loose in the box with nothing to protect them, very unusual for etrailer, I’m surprised nothing was broken . I’m very satisfied otherwise with the service and speed of delivery.


I use e trailer a lot and always have received quick service.Great company to deal with.


Ordered these and package came ripped open without pins inside. Contacted etrailer and they sent me new ones no questions asked. Gotta love a company that’s easy to work with and you can talk to without any hoops to jump through. I will buy all my stuff through them going forward.


Long enough for my new super duty truck with 2.5” receiver hitch with adapter.


Works great.


Nice innovative alternative to cotter p in.


great product!


Excellent product and USA made


The Gen-Y 4" hitch pin provides extra length when trying to put your hitch on your receiver. The knob end makes it easier to position for clip placement, sometimes the angle end is in the way and won't rotate enough. The hitch pin is very strong and durable, have used on a solid hitch with a 2 5/16" ball. No wear, continues to fit into hitch and receiver easily.


Works well. Definitely like the extra length needed for the larger hitches. Twist clip works much easier than the push clips.


Good for my current applications


Great pin. doesn't have the bent handle which an be a problem in some hitch applications. Well made great shoulder size on the head end. Thanks!


Had them for a year and still working great. I highly recommend etrailer. They’re a great company to work with. they actually care about the customer.


Purchasing experience was outstanding. Order placed on Monday March 26 and received on March 27. Noah was very helpful and great to work with. Shipment came in 2 packages and was complete. I would highly recommend for purchasing your towing needs. This was the second time I have ordered from and both times they have exceeded expectations.


The pin looks great and is very functional in summer time conditions. Unfortunately the salt in the NY winter really rusted the pin much quicker than I anticipated. My truck is babied in the winter and not driven that much in the snow and wintry conditions so the fact that the pin rusted so quickly indicates that the coating is not very good for corrosive environments.


nice product thanks


Very heavy duty, worth the investment. Fast shipping, easy website to navigate.


works great, the pin it super easy to get on and off




They work great and look nice.



new style pin like the way it works

  • Tow Rating for Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-099
    I confirmed with my contacts at Gen-Y Hitch that Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-099 tow rating is 32000 lb (shear strength) without the reducer sleeve. This hitch pin is designed for use with 2" by 2" and 2-1/2" by 2-1/2" hitches.

  • Can Grade 8 Bolts on an Adjustable Trailer Coupler Be Replaced with Hitch Pins
    I spoke to my contact at Bulldog and they cannot recommend substituting the grade 8 bolts that came with the coupler for a set of hitch pins. This would void the warranty of the coupler and more than likely a few SAE requirements. If you choose to do so anyway then you would need a hitch pin with a 5/8" diameter and a usable span of at least 3-1/2" for which you can use part # 325-GH-099.

  • Lock to Secure Ball in Gen-Y 2-1/2-Inch Adjustable 2-Ball Mount 325-GH-624
    Locking pins are not included in the Gen-Y 2-1/2-Inch Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-624 since it is easy to remove the hitch ball for safe storage. The ball mount includes Gen-Y Hitch Pin and Clip # 325-GH-099 for easy removal of the ball. But if you wish to add a lock you can use extra-long hitch lock # RH5-XL. I measured the mount to confirm this will work.

  • Replacement Clip Needed for Gen-Y Hitch
    The Gen-Y Pin and Clips are available as part # 325-GH-096 for a 2" hitch and part # 325-GH-099 for a 2-1/2" hitch, but the clips are not available separately. We do have standard pins, like the Curt # C21600 which fits both options, but none from Gen-Y with that turn at the end.

  • Hitch Pin Recommendation that Long Enough to Be Used on Chevy 2500HD With 2-1/2 in Hitch
    You need a longer usable portion of a pin and clip than what the # AM-PIN has so you'd want the Gen-Y part # 325-GH-099 which has a usable span of 4 inches.

  • Locking Hitch Pin Needed for a Gen-Y Hitch Being Used with a 2017 Toyota Tundra
    You most likely have a Gen-Y hitch that is compatible with a 2" receiver like part # 325-GH-516. This means that you would need to use the Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-096 which is comparable to the locking hitch pin # WS05. If you happen to be using a Gen-Y hitch that fits a 2-1/2" receiver, like part # 325-GH-624, then the Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-099 that comes with it is comparable to the locking hitch pin # BD580412.

  • Steel Hitch Pin for 2-1/2 Inch Receiver and Steel Hitch Reducer
    There are steel hitch pins for your 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch but all of them have a zinc coating, such as the Gen-Y Hitch Pin and Clip for 2-1/2" and 3" Hitches - 5/8" Diameter x 4" Long # 325-GH-099; as you mentioned, for a stainless steel pin you would need a lock, the Curt Hitch Lock - 2" and 2-1/2" Hitches - Stainless Steel # C23519. If you didn't want a lock because you didn't want to keep track of another key, there is the option of BOLT locks, which are made of stainless steel,...

  • Cushioned Shank For Use With Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
    We do have an option for you, though there isn't a standalone cushioned ball mount like the Curt Rebellion XD Shock Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount # C45949-22516 that is compatible or rated for use with a weight distribution system. What you can use instead is a cushioned shank that is compatible with your Equal-i-zer weight distribution system; the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank will mount directly in your trailer hitch and you'll simply replace your Equal-i-zer's shank with...

  • GenY and Roadmaster Hitch Pin Weight Capacity Comparisons
    Roadmaster hitch pins like # RM-316 and # RM-910034 are both rated for 10,000lbs. The GenY hitch pins like the # 325-GH-099 are rated for 32,000lbs. If you were using the # RM-316 the only way the lock would fall off is if it wasn't properly seated on the hitch pin when installed. If you were using the # RM-910034 the hitch pin clip could've came off. The GenY hitch pin clips wrap down for a bit of extra protection from coming off unlike the Roadmaster hitch pin clips.

  • Does B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS30048B Come with Hitch Pin
    The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount # BWTS30048B does not come with a hitch pin so you'd need to order that separately with the part # 325-GH-099 for a pin or part # BD580412 for a hitch lock.

  • What Should Ball Mount With 6 Inch Drop be Rated For With Titan Hitch Box Extension
    So you only need the ball mount to be rated for (at least) the amount you are towing, which in this case is 5,000 lbs. That 5k is also the max capacity (when cut down to 41 inches) of the Titan hitch extension, which is the following part number: - Titan Hitch Box Extension for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # RP45018 So as long as your ball mount is rated for the max 5,000 lbs the # RP45018 is rated for, that's all you'll need. There aren't actually any ball mounts with the drop you need that...
