Video Transcript for Kuat Hitch Locks - Rack Specific Pin Lock - HL1-105 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at a hitch lock for Kuat bike racks. This hitch lock secures your Kuat bike rack to your inch and a quarter hitch. It works with all NV2.0, NV2.0 base, and Sherpa 2.0 bike racks. The lock and pin are made from a durable steel construction, so it's a nice, strong design and it also features protective finishing to keep the components safe from rust and corrosion. On the lock body we have the integrated dust shield. It does a great job at keeping dirt and moisture out of the lock body.

Keys are included. It also comes with a burlap bag to store your items when they aren't in use, and it comes with a Kuat key chain that also is a bottle opener.So to unlock the unit, we need to take one of the keys. They're key to like, so either key will work with the lock. Place it in, rotate it, and then the lock pops right off. One of the neat features is that you don't have to have the keys installed in the body to lock it.

It just snaps on to the pin to lock back in place.Now, this is available in different lock codes, so be sure to check out all the options at and get the correct one that you need for your installation. The pin diameter is 3/8 of an inch. The overall length of the unit is about 5 3/4 inches. And then if we take a measurement of the span or the usable pin length, basically where we're measuring from is the lock body to the curved portion of the pin, which on this gives us a usable pin length of around four inches. Again, 3/8 inch diameter, and it is covered with a limited lifetime warranty, and when it's not in use you can put all of your stuff inside the burlap storage bag; that way it's ready for you the next time you need it.That's gonna do it for today's look at the hitch lock for Kuat bike racks..

Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike Racks - 1-1/4" Hitches - HL1

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (21 Customer Reviews)

This hitch lock fits the smaller pin hole on Kuat bike racks for 1-1/4" hitches. 2 Keys, dust cap, burlap bag, and Kuat keychain bottle opener included. 3/8" Diameter.


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.


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.


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).


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.


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.


Awesome its all about customer support. etrailer is #1


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


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.


The real deal, no complaints


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


This lock worked fine with the rack.


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


Perfect part.
