Video Transcript for Review of etrailer Hitch Pins and Clips - for 2 Inch and 2.5 Inch Hitches - e45TR

Hi there. I'm Michael with Today, we're gonna take a quick look at our trailer hitchreceiver pin and clip. This is a durable 5/8 inchdiameter carbon steel hitch pin that will secure your ballmount or hitch mounted accessory to your two inch or 21/2 inch hitch receiver. This does include the retaining clip here, so we can slide that in place to make sure that the pin is going tostay where we want it to be and it's not gonna wiggle its way out. Our usable length from wherethat clip is going to install to about where it'sgoing to start bending up here is going to be 3 1/2 inches, which should accommodate all the two and 2 1/2 inchhitch receivers out there, but you do wanna make surethat your outer diameter of your hitch is goingto allow for that clip to be put through there.

This does have a nice,black e-coat finish to it, both the pin and the clip. So, that's gonna help resist corrosion, help it to last a nice, long time. And it does have that durable carbon steel as I mentioned before, so it is going to be very sturdy for you. Comes with a lifetime limited warranty, so if you we're to have any problems, you're more than welcometo reach out to us here at We're always happy towork with our customers, make sure you're getting a product that you're satisfied withand works well for you.

So, if you are wanting to have a hitch pin for your two inch or 21/2 inch hitch receiver, this is gonna be exactly what you need. That completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with Thanks for watching. .

Good products

Excellent product. Heavy duty and the adjustable holes work with all kinds of trailer set-ups.
Paul - 12/09/2022


I had a back ordered item that eventually came along with some other items I ordered at the same time. I’m not good about waiting but the wait was worth it as the entire order came a couple days ago and I immediately started using the items. Thanks for getting it right.

Much easier to use than the standard ones. No more knuckle bruises.
Boyd - 06/02/2022


Easy to install!


Excellent quality and excellent customer service!


Fit like a glove.


Nice accessory to go with the new hitch I purchased from etrailer. The black Ecoating is awesome, not found on other similar pins.


Good hitch pin/clip. Does what it is supposed to do.


These hitch pins, like everything else I've bought at etrailer, is well made and sturdy. But what I believe is most commendable about the company is their superb customer service. You can get good products and fair prices from online retailers, but it is their attention to the customer's needs that sets them apart.


Product fine.. slow shipping


Appears to be of high quality. I love how thick thw cotter pin is and how strong the product is. It appears both pieces will hold up well over time. lt is much better quality and much better built than even the one that came with my trailer hitch. I am very happy I decided to purchase this.


Follow directions. It is an easy install. Just takes time.


I called in to make sure that I got correct every thing that I needed. Rodney was great and package arrive within 3 days


Hitch Pin, not much more. Hoping the black finish will look nice after use.


Works for me!


Round black pin and keeper. Fits into the ball mount and came in the nice brown box that ball mount came in. Thanks etrailer


etrailer never disappoints. They always have what I need in stock and ships quickly.


Easy website to maneuver, prompted shipment, and excellent product! Thanks!


OK, not the one I looked at


Piece of junk, black paint scrapes off immediately, cheap look and feel


Looks like it will work.


The pins are great.


Fits perfectly


Good quality


very impressive pin


Couldn’t believe I got it so fast!!!

  • What Parts are Included with Erickson Hitch Mounted Load Extender
    There are two main pieces, the L shaped piece and the T shaped piece. Both ends of the L fit into the T so that the cross bar can be positioned behind the truck or up higher level with the cab. The pins that hold the extender together are included, but you will need a hitch pin and clip like part # e45TR.

  • Does Erickson Big Bed Junior Hitch Mounted Load Extender # EM07605 Come with Needed Hitch Pins
    Yes, the Erickson Big Bed Junior Hitch Mounted Load Extender # EM07605 comes with the hitch pins needed for adjusting the height of the horizontal bar, but not for securing it to the hitch. You would need a hitch pin and clip like part # e45TR.

  • Replacement Hitch Pin And Clip For A 2"x2" Trailer Hitch On A 2022 Hyundai Palisade
    For your 2021 Subaru Ascent, with the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e35ZR, I recommend using the Threaded Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin Lock for etrailer Cargo Carriers # e99047. This is a locking hitch pin that can be keyed alike to match other etrailer branded locks, so you don't have to carry around a bunch of keys. A locking hitch pin is a much better option than a traditional pin and clip that increases security and theft prevention, however if you still wanted a traditional pin and...

  • How To Adapt a Schwinn Bike Rack with a 1-1/4" Shank to a 2" Hitch Receiver
    It sounds like you have a 2" hitch and your Schwinn bike rack has a 1-1/4" shank. While the Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve # SA3032 may work, it was designed for Saris bike racks that use a 1-1/4" to 2" adapter sleeve and would not have been tested with a Schwinn bike rack. I recommend that you use the Trailer Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver # e63YR which will reduce your hitch to 1-1/4" instead of adapting the shank on your Schwinn bike rack to the hitch....

  • Sway Control For Hitch Not Rated For Use With Weight Distribution
    Good question, and the hitch on your Audi is not rated for use with weight distribution, so what I recommend instead is a friction sway control set up. This will provide you with better control over your trailer to give you a much more controlled, steady, and comfortable towing experience. The way it works is the ball plate from the kit attaches to your trailer frame, and the other end attaches to a tab on a ball mount, like in the accompanying photo. Just keep in mind this will only...

  • Ball Mount For Draw-Tite Hitch on 2019 Honda Odyssey For 4x8 U-Haul Trailer
    We can definitely help you get exactly what you need to tow a 4 x 8 U-Haul trailer with your 2019 Honda Odyssey and the Draw-Tite Hitch # 76170. According to U-Haul, their coupler height is 18 inches, and when we installed this Draw-Tite hitch on a 2019 Odyssey we found that the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver was 14-1/2 inches. Put another way, you will want a ball mount with approximately 3-1/2 inches of rise, though you can go within an inch or so either way without...

  • Ball Mount For Draw-Tite Hitch 75238 on Toyota Tacoma
    There isn't a specific ball mount required for the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75238 on your Toyota Tacoma, though I recommend going with a Draw-Tite ball mount as they will fit properly in a Draw-Tite hitch. The correct one will depend on the rise or drop you need: - 1" Rise, 2" Drop: Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # 4284 - 3" Rise, 4" Drop: Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # 4285 Along with the ball mount you will also need a hitch lock or pin and clip to secure it to your hitch,...
