Video Transcript for Kuat Bike Racks Hitch Lock Review

Hi everyone, Aiden here at etrailer. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Kuat Locking Hitch Pin for your inch and a quarter bike racks. This is going to be a replacement locking pin for your bike racks on inch and a quarter hitches. You can see here this is the standard pin that comes with some of their bike racks that we'd be replacing, and the new one is just going to be a locking pin, same diameter pin just with a lock core on the other end. Let's check it out. So I'll talk about the lock a little bit more out here before we put it on because it's gonna be hard to see down there.

But overall, the function of this lock is really nice. It's got a cap on the top here to just keep the locking core all protected. It snaps into place and it fits pretty firmly. The lock itself is very smooth to insert and turn to disengage, pops right off. And the nice thing about this that I always look for in a lock is if it's a push to lock.

So I can just push it in place, I'll hear it click, and then it's locked in. So I don't have to worry about keeping the key inserted, holding it in place, and then turning it to lock it whenever I'm all under my car. One thing I will say about this is that the fitting point here is a little bit loose just because this is a very small pin. But I have messed with this quite a bit off-camera and really tried to find if there's a weak point here, and I haven't found any point where it feels like it's going to pop loose. Despite that movement in there, it feels like the pin is held in place very securely, so I'm not too concerned about that.

The other nice thing I like about it is the fact that the locking core here is on the side. So when the pin is through, the locking core is going to face us, rather than being out to the side like this. That just helps with getting access to it when it's under our vehicle. And if you have a hitch that's really far-recessed or maybe has some other clearance issues, then you don't have to worry about it as much interfering with things because it doesn't stick out as far. Underneath, we can pass the pin through the hitch pin hole, pop that lock core on the other side, it's already locked in place.

And then at this point, you can tighten up your bike rack and get it all secured. And that's really all there is to it. Overall, it's a locking pin. It says what it's gonna do. And I think at the end of the day, it's going to be a big upgrade over the standard pinning clip that comes with your bike rack, and it's gonna be a lot more secure. When it comes to locking pins, there's not really much to look for besides a nice secure fit and ease of use, and I think Kuat really did a good job with this one. It's easy to use, it's got a secure fit, and I'm not worried about it when I'm leaving my bike rack on my vehicle. Thanks for watching.

Perfect fit for my Kuat Transfer V2 rack. I was pleasantly surprised to open the eTrailer shipping box and find the hitch lock in an original Kuat burlap sack. Thank you eTrailer.



by:

High quality heavy duty hitch pin lock. The incorrect one was shipped, and when I called, they immediately sent out the correct one.



by:

eTrailer is fantastic! Very helpful product reviews and terrific service. Orders arrive on time.



by:

Look, if they want it bad enough, they'll get it. However this lock, along with the mechanical device built into the kuat rack to tighten it in the hitch by use of a unique wrench, it just got a lot more difficult for them. It looks good and the lock mechanism looks robust for it's size. It's not as thick as your hitch pin for your full sized trailer you tow, but it's sufficient enough to provide another layer of protection for the bike rack.



by:

Prompt service. Easy order on website.



by:

1 year later, we are very pleased with this purchase. I couldn’t find a hitch this small at any stores near me and I love that this locks for my bike trailer (Thule).



by:

This is a must have for added security and peace of mind.



by:

fast and the best price on this



by:

Arrived faster than expected, which is good because I wanted to secure my bike rack that I just bought. Also the best part is I can use the lock on the threaded pin that came with my bike rack so its more stable. Highly recommend



by:

I needed the lock for the 2” hitch pin which wouldn’t be available for 4 months. The lock from this fits right on the pin that came with the transfer 3 rack.



by:

Shipped out fast



by:

Makes me feel more secure...great customer service at etrailer!



by:

This locking hutch pin works perfect. Not the problems with that you have with others. However, I have to have 2 locking pins for this Kuat hitch for the Venza. That is over $50. The hitch requires smaller pin than receiver takes for receiver cover to lock it on. That is due to this single side transfer bike rack adapting. This needs to be resolved, so customers do not have $75 -$100 in rack, and receiver covers for this rack.



by:

I like the fact that the protective key cap is now attached to the lock. I lost a cap of your earlier version that had to be removed completely to access key hole.



by:

This lock worked fine with the rack.



by:

Awesome its all about customer support. etrailer is #1



by:

I bought this lock as a replacement for the original after I lost the key and had to cut it free from my vehicle. Everything arrived as advertised and has worked flawlessly for over a year. The pin is the right size for the hole on my Kuat Sherpa rack.



by:

Excellent Seller! Will place an order again in the future! All the best!

The real deal, no complaints
