Video Transcript for Redline Snapper Pin Review

Randy: Hey, Guys. It's Randy here at Today we're taking a look at the Redline coupler pins. These pins are gonna be a really good solution. They come in several sizes for all different sizes of couplers, so we can keep that latch down and engaged, but also the 3/8-inch variety and the 2-1/2 inch length makes a great replacement for drop leg or caster wheel pins that we might've lost.This is our 1-3/4 usable portion pin. It's gonna be available in the 1/4-inch or the 5/16-inch pin diameter.

For the larger one, like what we have here, with the 2-1/2 inches of usable space, it's available in the 1/4, 5/16, and the 3/8.I really like this design. I think the longer end here helps us get a little bit more purchase on it when we wanna pull it off. And I also like the tension that's on the spring. It's got a good amount to it. It's not so tough that you can't get it off, but it's also not so flimsy that you think it'll just fall off as we head down the road.It comes through, very positive click there.

It's gonna be nice and secure. I also think this is gonna be one that's gonna last for a very long time, just like most of the coupler pins out there. These don't get a whole lot of wear to them, but we do have that white zinc finish, so as moisture and stuff, the road grime, gets on it, corrosion's not gonna be an issue for us.I think this pin's gonna work out, as you can see, several different applications. The 2-1/2-inch and the 1-3/4 length are gonna be pretty common. When we compare these to other pin and clips out there, I like the way these work.

I like the way they feel. That spring mechanism to release it is nice and strong.As far as other options that you might have, some of these are equipped with chains already connected to them. That chain, you could bring down and connect to your coupler, using maybe a self-tapper screw or a little nut and bolt. Now, that type of pin and clip I think will come in handy if you have a habit of losing them often. People misplace them, leave them up here, they fall off.

If you do that often, grab one with a chain. It's probably a better option.Additionally, if you want more security, if you'd like to have a lock also, we have several available on our website in all the different popular sizes. Basically, you'll just slide your pin through so it keeps your coupler locked, but then you'll have a lock that'll slide on the end, ensuring nobody can separate the trailer from the truck.And of course, regardless of the size that you choose, installation's gonna be really straight forward. We just need to pull out on the keeper. It's got a little bit of a spring effect to it that'll allow us to open it up. We can slide it through our coupler. Once we get that through, we're gonna keep her down on the other side. You can see that holds it in place there really nicely. This is a perfect fit for this style coupler. If you want a little bit more slack, I'd go up to the 2-1/2 at that point.And that'll complete our look at the Redline coupler pins.

Snapper Pin, 1/4" x 2-1/2" - 14-212TR

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (42 Customer Reviews)


Bought some of these snapper pins for a nest box installation, to keep the poles safely extended when the nest box is raised up in the air. You can see the pin just above the left shoulder of the young man in the photo. They work great!

Still working great!

What you would expect. Fits the ball hitch latch perfectly.


Very good customer service with lady that was helpful


Fit perfectly in my trailer end which hold the ramps stowed.


I had purchased two of these several years ago, but over time both have been lost. Now that winter is over, I needed more and was happy to see eTrailer still carries them. Tthe rounded top piece fits nicely around the rounded top of the hitch, so they don't flap around in the wind....just sit nicely keeping everything together.

Still on the hitch and works fine. Looks like it might be developing a couple little rust spots, but considering how much it gets used, thats understandable.

We bought these for our pintle hook trailer hitch to have as spares, since we occassionnally "misplace" the pin it came with..... They both seem well made and should do the job well. These were shipped in the mail, and took about a week to get here. eTrailers offers good service, and when I checked to see where my order was, they were able to tell me how it had been shipped - and sure enough, it was in my PO Box that very day!


This item is of the same quality, speed of shipping, and great communication I always get with I have never been disappointed and this clip is another fine product. I bought it for the hitch on my Vermeer BC1000 chipper and it fits and works like a charm. Thanks again etrailer, Ed.


Product is just as described, snaps on/off cleanly.

Lost the pin on my Everyday Jogger/Trailer, used this as a replacement pin and it worked perfectly. Brand site was charging $21.00 after taxes and shipping - so glad I found it here for less than 1/3 the cost!

Package arrived within a week which was fine with me, located in Seattle area.


Not received. Yet.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

I had to restock my Snapper Pins for the fleet I coordinate. I was able to buy all the sizes I needed. Great communication on the shipment and arrived in a reasonable amount of time.


Great clevis pin!! Great invention! Great for cold weather when you are struggling with cold fingers to remove a Codder Pin from a conventional clevis pin on a trailer!


I had a lot of trouble finding the right clip for my trailer, but etrailer had it! And they shipped it fast! Thanks etrailer! I'll be back for sure!


These little coupler pins are hard to find. Most of them dont have that little tang on the end that makes them so easy to unhook. As usual, E trailer had them and the price was right. Service was excellent, had them in a few days.


Got the fenders I needed, fast shipping, thought it was coming from east coast but came from more my region. Just what i needed however had to cut holes for the lights. These guys have done a good job for me a couple times now. Liking it.


The clip was exactly what I expected and worked correctly the first time. The order process was very easy. I would gladly order from etrailer again


Good product at fair price. Easier to order online rather than chase around town trying to find one at a store other than a RV outlet, which is not close to me.


Works perfectly. I needed to replace the original clips for a dumping trailer so bought these.


These clips were exactly what I expected, and they function very well. only thing to see is how they hold up over time, but due to their simplicity, I don't foresee any possible issues


Hard to find item in my area, etrailer had these available immediately and shipping was fast! Thanx etrailer


The Best thanks


Really good quality hitch pin!!


Good Quality great price..Thanks again.


Items were delivered very quickly. good quality. as described


Perfect for a tent clip replacement.


Simple item that does exactly what it should and hasn't rusted in the year I've had it.

  • What is the Overall Length of Snapper Pin # 14-212TR
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled pin # 14-212TR to measure the overall length. It measured 3 inches from end to end. I made a short video for you showing the measurement.

  • Trailer Coupler Safety Pin with At Least 3 Inch Span
    The best option we have for you is the Snapper Pin part # 14-212TR which is 1/4" diameter with a 2-1/2" usable span. The only option we have with both a 1/4" diameter and at least 3" usable length is the Trailer Coupler Pin part # 37201211 which has a square shaped bale, not the half moon shape you are after. If you would like a locking coupler lock we have the Trailer Coupler Lock part # e98888 which is 1/4" diameter with a 3-3/8" usable span.

  • replacement Pin for an Old Thule Rac N Lock Carrier
    Do you have a way to measure the opening? For this purpose even a ruler would suffice in showing the diameter that would fit versus what would not. Pin # Y8780020 is a 3/8 inch diameter which is about as small as you are going to find for pins like this. Everything else is going to be 1/2 inch or larger. Outside of replacement bike rack parts we have snapper pin # 14-212TR which is a small 1/4 inch diameter. The same for # 14-238 and the longer # 37201211.
