Video Transcript for Review of Kuat Trailer Hitch Lock - Kuat Bike Rack Hitch Lock - HL2

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a quick look at this Kuat hitch lock for your bike racks. This is going to ensure that your Kuat bike rack is always on your hitch, you're not gonna have to worry about someone coming along and taking it, while you're away. So it's gonna help keep your hitch-mounted bike rack secure. This is going to fit into the smaller pinhole on your Kuat bike racks, including the NV 2.0, NV 2.0 base, and the Sherpa 2.0. This will slide right in to secure those to your two-inch hitches.

This does have an integrated dust shield to help prevent any water or dirt, debris from getting in to the lock cylinder there where it could cause damage. So we're gonna want to make sure that we have that cap on there, when we're not accessing our key compartment. So then we do get these two keys that will allow us to just simply turn and unlock, so we can remove if we ever want to take our bike rack off. And very easy to get locked back in place there. Now, as far as our measurements go this is a half-inch diameter pin, so it's gonna fit right in to that pinhole on your two-inch hitch receiver and on your Kuat bike rack.

Our overall length is just shy of six inches, to my measurement. There. If we're lookin' at our usable length, from where the cylinder is going to butt up against the edge of our hitch, down to where the curve starts here, it's just over five and a half-- or sorry, three and a half inches, probably, I'd call it about three and five-eighths of an inch, there. And so, we'll have plenty of room for our two-inch hitches and everything there. You can see this, our keys do come with this nice bottle opener keychain.

And we are going to get a burlap bag that we can store all of this in when we're not using it. Very easy to cinch up and just hang on our bike rack if we have it stored in the garage or something along those lines. So that we make sure that we have all the components and the keys ready for us the next time that we want to put it on. So overall, I think this is going to be a great option for those of you who have those Kuat bike racks, you want to make sure that it's gonna be secured on to your hitch, this will do a great job of that. So that's gonna complete our look for today.

Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com, thanks for watching..

The hitch lock is easy to use, however it was also easy to remove by a thief, I had my KÜAT bike rack stolen.


Comments
I would love to say that hitch locks are 100 percent fool proof however I consider them to be theft deterrents. It will help to prevent a crime of opportunity. If a thief is determined enough a lock can be circumvented.

This hitch lock works very well with my Kuat Sherpa bicycle rack. The feature I like best is you don’t need to use a key to install the lock on the pin. You just have to snap the lock on. I also like the keyhole cover on the lock. My lock arrived very quickly, as well.

  • Replacing Hitch Pin & Lock for Kuat Sherpa After Losing Hitch Pin
    We do offer a Kuat hitch lock that will work well to replace your lost hitch pin. For your Kuat Sherpa 2-Bike Rack for 1-1/4 Inch and 2 Inch Hitches, you will want the Kuat Bike Rack Hitch Lock # HL1 or # HL2. This will include both a new hitch pin and new lock with keys. We do not offer just the pin by itself to fit your original lock.

  • Can the Kuat Lock Be Used in a 2 inch Hitch
    The Kuat Lock part # HL2 that you referenced can be used in 2 inch hitches as long as the Kuat rack you have has the 2 inch adapter installed on it.

  • Replacement Pin for Kuat NV Bike Rack
    To replace the hitch pin for your Kuat NV Bike Rack you will need to use the part # HL2, which includes both the pin and lock core (plus 2 keys). The pin unfortunately is not available by itself from Kuat as a separate product. There isn't one from a different manufacturer that will fit their lock core, either. I have attached a short video review below that you can check out as well.

  • Availability of Specific Lock Core for Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike Racks
    In the past, Kuat did have specific lock numbers available to order but that has changed. Unfortunately, a specific lock number is not something that is available. Assuming you have a 2" hitch, the Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike Racks - 2" Hitches # HL2 is the correct lock for your NV 2.0, NV 2.0 Base, or Sherpa 2.0 bike rack. The only choice would be to have two different keys between your locks.

  • Does Kuat Replacement Lock Come With Specific Locks
    At one point, Kuat had specific lock numbers available but they have changed that recently in order to make ordering locks easier for their bike racks; due to this, specific lock numbers are not something Kuat makes available. The correct lock is going to depend on what rack you have and your hitch size. - Kuat NV 2.0, NV 2.0 Base, and Sherpa 2.0 with 1-1/4" Hitch: Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike Racks # HL1 - Kuat NV 2.0, NV 2.0 Base, and Sherpa 2.0 with 2" Hitch: Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike Racks...

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for a Kuat Beta for 2 Inch Hitches
    Kuat recommends the part # H101 for the Kuat Beta for 2 inch hitches part # B202-2 that you referenced. The usable span of the hitch lock is 3-1/2 inches which would be more than enough. Usually 2 inch hitch accessories use 5/8 inch hitch pins, but Kuat designed this rack for a 1/2 inch hitch pin like the # HL2.

  • Correct Hitch Lock for the Kuat Beta Bike Rack 2
    The correct hitch lock for the Kuat Beta item # B202-2 is the Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike Racks - 2" Hitches item # HL2. I have linked a review video.

  • Which Kuat Hitch Lock Should I Use For The Kuat Transfer V2 1-Bike Carrier?
    If you are installing the Kuat Transfer V2 1-bike carrier # KU64FR onto a 2" hitch receiver, then you will want to use Hitch Lock # HL2. If you are installing this bike carrier onto a 1-1/4" receiver then use Hitch Lock # HL1. If you are wanting to transfer the bike rack between vehicles with different size receivers and don't want to buy both locks then you can just stick with the # HL1 lock which is for 1-1/4" but will also work with 2". There may be a slight increase in play/movement...

  • Which Hitch Lock to Use with Kuat NV 2.0 with 2 inch Hitch Adapter
    You'd need the hitch lock for 2 inch hitches part # HL2 as a hitch lock for the Kuat NV2.0 part # NV12G using it's 2 inch hitch adapter.

  • Replacement Hitch pin for Kuat Sherpa Bike Rack
    If your Kuat Sherpa has a 2 inch shank then you will use the Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike Racks - 2" Hitches # HL2. If your Sherpa has the 1-1/4 inch shank then you will use the Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike Racks - 1-1/4" Hitches # HL1.

  • Which Hitch Lock For Kuat Transfer V2 Single Bike Rack
    The Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack for 1 Bike - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # KU64FR uses the # HL2.
    view full answer...
  • Hitch Lock For The Kuat Transfer # KU64FR 2 Inch Hitch
    The only difference between the # HL1 and # HL2 hitch lock is the diameter. HL1 is 3/8" in diameter and the HL2 is 1/2". Measure the diameter of the hole you have to see which one is closer. If the hole is more than 1/2" you can use either of them for the Kuat Transfer # KU64FR.

  • Smaller Kuat Hitch Pin for 2 Inch Bike Racks
    It seems odd, but the reason Kuat recommends using their 1/2 inch pin, # HL2, with their 2 inch bike racks is because a larger pin will interfere with the anti-rattle system in the bike rack's shank. To eliminate the movement of the pin, you can pull the rack backwards before tightening the anti-rattle system, while the hitch pin is installed, then tighten the anti-rattle knob down. This will sandwich that pin between the rack and the hitch keeping it from rattling around. The anti-rattle...

  • Lock Recommendation for Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Rack TS03G
    We have a lock setup for the Kuat Transfer 3 bike rack with the part # PTSCLK13 but the # HL2 does not fit your rack. This part number comes with a lock for the hitch pin and also comes with cable locks to lock the bikes to the rack as well.

  • What Hitch Lock Should I Use With My Kuat Beta 2 Bike Rack
    When it comes to locking your Kuat Beta bike rack to your 2 inch hitch I recommend The etrailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98881. Its made from steel and has a 3-5/8 inch span, with a 5/8 inch pin diameter. The Kuat Lock # HL2 will not work with your Kuat Beta, because it has a 1/2 inch pin diamter. I have linked a review video below.

  • Recommended Hitch Lock for Kuat Beta 2 Bike Rack
    Kuat offers two different hitch locks, the # HL1 for the # B202-114 Beta that's designed for the 1-1/4 inch receiver and the # HL2 lock that's designed for the # B202-2 Beta rack that's designed for the 2 inch receiver. If the correct lock is used for the correct rack, no alterations of any kind will be necessary (we don't recommend altering the rack in any way, as it will compromise your warranty protection.)

  • Hitch Locks That Fit Kuat Beta Bike Racks
    Kuat offers two different hitch locks, the # HL1 for the # B202-114 Beta that's designed for the 1-1/4 inch receiver and the # HL2 lock that's designed for the # B202-2 Beta rack that's designed for the 2 inch receiver. So it depends on which Beta version you have.

  • Recommendation for Bike Rack That Wont Wobble on 2013 Lexus RX350
    Actually, the Kuat Beta 2 Bike rack you mentioned, part # B202-2 would be an excellent choice for you. The rack is very reasonably priced, and is made of strong but lightweight aluminum which makes it easy for just about anybody to handle. The rack is very highly rated by our customers, and features padded anti sway cradles and sturdy rubber straps to keep your bikes secure. Most importantly for you, the rack provides a very effective anti-rattle feature that will lock the rack tightly...

    The Kuat Bike Rack Shank Adapter # D101 will work in converting your 1-1/4" Kuat bike rack to 2" to fit your receiver hitch, as long as your bike rack is Kuat Alpha, Beta, NV 2.0, NV Base 2.0, Sherpa, and Sherpa 2. This adapter will not work for first generation Kuat NV bike racks. The correct hitch lock to use with this 2" adapter is the Hitch Lock # HL2.

    I'm happy to inform you that the Hitch Lock for Kuat Bike Racks, part # HL2, is indeed compatible with your Transfer V2 Rack, part # KU24FR.

  • Is Kuat Transfer V2 a Good Bike Rack for 2022 Subaru Outback Wagon and Standard Bikes
    The Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack # KU84FR is one of my absolute favorite bike racks so I definitely recommend going that route as long as neither of your bikes has a front fender. Since the ratcheting arm comes down on the tire next to the front forks it would damage a fender. This rack comes with a cable lock for the bikes but if you'd like to lock the rack to your 2022 Subaru Outback Wagon then you just need the Hitch Lock # HL2.
