This hitch combines with a Lock 'N' Roll trailer-end coupler (sold separately) to create a safe, secure, fully articulating connection that's great for towing whether you're on the road or off-road. It's more secure than a traditional ball hitch, and it's more comfortable and quieter than a pintle setup. The Lock 'N' Roll connects quickly and easily, and can adapt to any towing conditions.


Strong, Safe Connection

When using a traditional ball coupler, it can be hard to tell if the coupler is fully latched around the ball. You can head out assuming the connection is secure, only to have the trailer pop off of the ball and disconnect while you're towing. With the Lock 'N' Roll, that won't happen.


Lock N Roll Connected

This unique hitch is designed to interlock with a matching trailer-side coupler to form a tight, secure connection. Unlike on a ball coupler, the latching components on the Lock 'N' Roll system are easy to see, so you can tell at a glance if the connection is secure.


Once secure, the Lock 'N' Roll setup offers a wide range of motion, which makes for a smooth ride. Because of the articulating action of the combined hitch and coupler, the Lock 'N' Roll connection can handle the harsh bumps and road shock that could otherwise stress and potentially damage a ball coupler.


The Lock 'N' Roll connection also makes your trailer less vulnerable to theft. Unlike a traditional ball coupler, which is compatible with any hitch ball of a matching size, the trailer-side Lock 'N' Roll coupler can only connect to a vehicle-side Lock 'N' Roll hitch. So your trailer cannot be towed away unless it's connected to a vehicle with a Lock 'N' Roll hitch installed.


With the Lock 'N' Roll, you can have peace of mind knowing your connection will not come apart or succumb to damage caused by road shock, nor will your trailer be vulnerable to theft.


Comfortable Off-Road Towing

The pintle hitch connection is the most common setup when towing off road because of the flexibility in the connection. But that flexible connection can also result in a lot of slop. This can cause uncomfortable jerking as well as rattle and noise. In addition, when using a pintle/lunette ring setup, it can be difficult to back up your vehicle and trailer without jackknifing. And it can be hard to disconnect at certain angles, which may be a necessity when overlanding.


The Lock 'N' Roll assembly, on the other hand, offers a close-fit, slop-free connection that's designed for off-roading. This close-fitting design provides a smoother ride than a pintle/lunette ring connection with less rattle. It also makes it easy to back your vehicle and trailer up without jackknifing.


Offroading Jeep with a Lock 'N' Roll hitch

When combined, the Lock 'N' Roll hitch and coupler also create a fully articulating connection that's great for off-roading. The bearing that's built into the vehicle-end hitch allows for 360 degrees of rotation, which means that your trailer could actually roll all the way over and not take your vehicle with it. The connection also pivots side to side and up and down, making it easy to take rough trails without jarring your setup. This also allows for fast and easy disconnection, even at extreme angles.


How Lock 'N' Roll Works

Lock N Roll Fully Connected

Each Lock 'N' Roll setup requires 2 parts - a trailer end and a vehicle end. Together they create a strong, secure connection. To connect, just line up the trailer end and vehicle end together and place the outer metal tabs of the trailer-end coupler into the hooks on the vehicle-end hitch. Then fold the latching plates on the vehicle-end hitch down and secure them in place over the tabs using the included pin and clip. With the latching plates secured, the Lock 'N' Roll assembly will stay firmly connected.


In Action Diagram

When the trailer-side coupler and vehicle-side hitch are secured together, they form an articulating assembly with 3 axes of directional motion. The uniquely designed bearing on the vehicle-side hitch allows the connection to rotate a full 360 degrees. The trailer-side coupler's hinge allows the connection to pivot to the left and to the right. And when the 2 parts are joined, the tabs will roll inside of the hooks so that the entire assembly can tilt up and down.


Towing with the Lock 'N' Roll is easy, and it gives you a connection that's both flexible and secure.


Get Maximum Security Locking Pins

Get extra security for your trailer. InfiniteRule makes hitch pin locks (IR59FR - sold separately) specifically for this Lock 'N' Roll articulating hitch. You'll get two stainless steel locks: one with a 1/2" diameter pin, and one with a 5/8" diameter pin. These will replace the standard pins and clips on the driver-side and trailer-side of your coupler.

Works amazingly



by:

I had to drill a new hole about an inch further up. The shaft gets a little larger towards the connection keeping the shaft from going in enough for the holes to completely line up. Worked fine after that.



by:

Some of the backroads we drive look more like a riverbed, and we worried about the twists and turns on our conventional hitch. The Lock N Roll hitch eliminates that worry. But the best part is the ease of hook-up. The Lock N Roll hitch is more forgiving in hook-up angle, and no more beating on the trailer mechanism to get it to grip the ball. Good heavy-duty product.

Missing the pin for the vehicle side of the hitch

Etrailer Expert

Katrina D.

2/2/2024

So, this articulating trailer hitch does not come with a pin and clip for the vehicle side of the hitch. If you are wanting a plain pin and clip, I would recommend part # PC3. If you are wanting a locking hitch pin that would help protect your hitch accessories from theft, I would recommend part # BL7023582.



by:

The articulating hitch system has worked great for my offroading needs. I've got a Rubicon and have no worries about taking my a Smittybuilt Scout trailer off the beaten path and finding some great dispersed camping spots.



by:

Carol was very helpful in getting the part we needed.



by:

One of the best products out there for hauling anything off road.



by:

Excellent product, works great on my overland trailer no matter what the terraine.



by:

10k miles both on and Offroad and I’m very impressed. The versatility it added to the trailer was well worth it. I can drag the trailer wherever i can drive my Jeep.



by:

Product was exactly what I wanted. Tracking # was sent early and was easy to use. The whole process was easy and simple.



by:

We got it together with the trailer part/side; and the same: So far it resolved the problem we had. You just need to be careful when driving at speeds over 50 miles if full, because the trailer will be able to move in all axles if a sudden move/turn from your wheel; though you can add sway bars. We are glad we bought it and we may buy another one.



by:

Quality trailer hitch. Exactly as advertised. Strong heavy steel. Good welds. Fits perfectly.
Prompt delivery. It will certainly enhance my off road trailering experience. The only modification I made was to remove the needle style zerk fitting and replaced it with a standard zerk fitting. Makes for easier lubing the joint. Glad to be rid of my restrictive ball hitch.



by:

Had the Lock n Roll hitch for a year. Many off road adventures towing our trailer. Has worked perfectly and find it easier to use than a conventual ball hitch.



by:

Perfect fit works great



by:

I always receive great customer service whenever I call etrailer. The hold time can be 5-15 minutes but the knowledge on the other end of the phone is worth waiting for. The lock n roll coupler is a proven and necessary piece of equipment if you are planning on taking your off-road trailer off the beaten path like I am.



by:

The best investment if you don't ever want your trailer to pass you out on the trail. Never had a better hitch. Very heavy duty. Worth every penny



by:

Tested it on it's maiden voyage through the brutality of the Ozarks and it performed flawlessly.



by:

Excellent product.
Very well built and
the Welds look phenominal.



by:

I recently purchased a product from etrailer. I’m not much for internet purchases and contacted them to speak directly to a live person. Best call I’ve made in awhile. I spoke with Donna from etrailer and was treated to good ole fashion customer service. Donna was great and a sale and future costumer was made. Great service great product.



by:

Thanks etrailer. This is exactly what I needed and in a timely manner to replace one that was stolen. You'll be my source for several things going forward.



by:

This is wonderful.



by:

Very well built

System works great! Have it installed on a T@G off-road teardrop, two flat decks.

  • Which Vehicle Side Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch for Setup that Requires Zero Drop
    Based on your measurements the correct Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitch would be the part # 336VS501 that you referenced which does not have any rise or drop built into it.

  • Does Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitch Setup Allow More Sway
    The use of Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitch for 2" Receivers # 336VS501 does not add sway to the setup. Couplers normally can articulate to the left and right like what this allows so it would not be any more prone to sway than a ball style coupler.

  • Does Lock N Roll Shank Prevent Need for Sway Control
    The Lock N Roll Shanks like the part # 336VS501 do not have any sway control built into them so they would not have ability to eliminate need for sway control. In general though the best best way to prevent sway is with proper trailer loading. If you can load the trailer so that the amount of tongue weight is 10 to 15 percent of total trailer weight you wouldn't need sway control.

  • Installation of Lock N Roll Coupler on Travel Trailer
    Since you have a travel trailer I'm assuming you have an A-frame coupler on it. If that is the case, the only option would be to cut that off and weld on the Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS504. I understand not wanting to have to do this, but assuming you plan on off-road towing or overlanding it will be worth it. We recommend taking it to a certified welder for installation. On the vehicle side you will also want a Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch like # 336VS503505.

You'd have to have your old coupler removed and this one welded in place of it. For the shank that slides into the hitch of your vehicle you'd want the part # 336VS501 for a fixed height solution of the part # 336VS503505 which has a three height settings.

    Yes, the Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitch # 336VS501 will allow you to backup your trailer just like a traditional ball hitch. Since the hitch and Coupler # 336TS528 lock onto one another there is much less noise than you will get with a traditional ball coupler.

  • Can the Lock N Roll Articulating Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler Be Used On Highways?
    The Lock N Roll Articulating Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler item # 336TS528 works great for both highway and off-road applications.

The good news is that this can also be used for your light trailer. The max weight limit is 11,000 lbs but it has no minimum weight limit.

  • Can The Lock N Roll Trailer Hitches Be Mounted On The Trailer Side?
    The Lock N Roll Articulating Hitches # 336VS503505, # 336VS501 and # 336VS503 are only designed to mounted on the vehicle side. The same goes for the Coupler Sides # 336TS504 and # 336TS508 only being designed for mounting on the trailer side. As the Lock N Roll has not been designed to work either way it has not been tested so there is no way to guarantee it will not have an issue if they were flipped around.
