Excellent product, very fast shipping. This hitch lock is the answer to your problem. The Küat Transfer 2 bicycle rack is now securely fastened to the receiver on my truck.


The lock for bike hitch is well made, easy to lock and unlock from pin and has a sturdy dirt cover to protect the key mechanism. This is another excellent item among the many I have ordered from etrailer . Very happy with the products they offer, the info, and mailing/handling of items.

Very happy with this lockpin and lock setup. After a year of use and several long trips, dirt cover does a great job keeping water, mud, dirt away from key

Just like Pictured---works as it should. No issues. Quality Product


product is as advertised. works perfectly. has made my hitch, and rack needs so easy to figure out. thank you.


This lock should help a little, but it isn’t a high security device. It locks onto the end of the pin somewhat loosely, and a motivated thief could probably defeat it without too much trouble. I would buy this again.


Exactly what I wanted.


It is loose on the hitch, potentially bouncing up and down to make rattling noise. Had to improvise temporary solution to stop the metal hitting metal. Otherwise a good tool to lock.

Good. Solved the rattling problem at the base with some sticky foam wrap

Excellent product. Easy to install and remove from my bike rack/hitch. Gave it a good test on vacation to Nova Scotia. Logged over 2000 miles on the car with the bike rack installed using the locking bolt and all was perfect.

What can I say. Another year gone by and the bike rack still performing perfectly.I am very happy with this product. Would definitely recommend to others.
Bob R - 07/17/2020


Simple and effective. Threaded hitch keeps the bike rack from wiggling. The lock hasn't been "tested" that I'm aware of, but the keyed lock and cylinder still work smoothly even after being out in the weather.


Works like a charm


Excellent customer service!

quality lock to securely fasten the Kuat Transfer to your hitch. The shipping was fast and had a nice customer service follow up from e-trailer after the package arrived. I will absolutely do business with them again!

The lock works great and is very smooth and simple to use. However the sealing cover broke afetr only a few uses but thats no big deal and I would buy again. Thanks etrailer!

The Kuat trailer hitch lock is a nice compliment to my Kuat bike carrier. It works flawlessly and prevents the bike rack from rattling. The rubber keyhole cover prevents dirt and road grime from getting into the keyhole. I feel confident that my investment in a topnotch bike carrier and TREK bicycles are secure with the Kuat trailer hitch lock.


Not really sure how to rate this. The pin and other hardware that comes with it is identical to what came with my Transfer 2 carrier, so I'd think they could simply sell the lock by itself. It's well made, and the cover fits tightly so it should do a good job of keeping dirt out of the locking mechanism. It does fit very loosely, but I can't hear any rattling while driving.

The lock has been great. I dont use it regularly, but have been on several trips and it performed flawlessly. Still looks brand new, and operates perfectly, even after two long trips that involved very heavy rain for many miles.

This rack is the business, we have transported road racing bikes for years, but dirty mud covered mtb bikes are a different problem. This rack allows us to ride and rack our mud covered bikes without any handling issues, wheel removal or concern about damaging the frame/paintwork as the hitch only makes contact with the wheels. Does not matter if we are riding our 26” bikes, our 27.5”s or the fat tired bikes no adjustment no resetting just lift and load could not be easier as a wise person once told (the wife) the rack was worth every penny.


Thought this would work on our Kuat hitch extender. It does not, the threads are smaller than the extender threads. However, the lock works on the original extender bolt, so I basically just bought a lock.


Installed by myself but would recommend having a friend help. I didn’t have any friends to help. Installed nicely. Fit perfectly. Be sure to clean out existing tapped holes in the car frame before installing . I used my toothbrush and WD40. My teeth were shiney and no squeaks next day. Frame worked super on 800 mile road trip next day.


Assembly was very easy as the assembly design is well-thought out, requires only the included allen wrench. Fits well on my 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe with our road bikes and also easily accomodates grandkids 20" and 24" wheel bikes. My car hitch has two holes for hitch pins and the smaller one was what the Kuat hitch pin/screw fit into. Very happy that the screw holds rack tight to the hitch since my other rack sways a lot on corners and uneven roads. Rack is also easy to take on/off car as I intend to take it off between uses. Extremely pleased with purchase.


While it took FIVE months to arrive, it is nicely made. Came in a canvas carry bag, has THREE keys and a beer opener key fob.


Kuat 2 bike platform rack; wheel mount

on day 1; promised delivery on day 6; actual delivery on day 3.
I put together the rack myself. Fairly easy to do by myself; at times it would have helped to have another pair of hands. Insturctions are very good. Items are packaged very well so that all bolts/nuts for each piece of the rack are separately packed; all the hardware is not just thrown together in one bag.
My wife's bike is a "step through" and has several items mounted on the frame. So it was very important that we get a "wheel mount" (Fork holds down the front tire not the frame.)
It took me 2.25 hours to put it together...BUT I had a problem with one of the holes which did not line up properly so the bolt would not go through took me 1.25 hours to figure out the problem and the solution (I had to ream out the hole in the metal frame another 1/16" to get the bolt to align properly.)
I only mounted our bikes on it to drive around the block for a test. We have not taken it on a long trip yet. So far I am very pleased.


Hitch lock with bolt has been used off/on, no problems so far. I use my hitch several times per month, and put it on/take it off after each use. I need to access the lock and remove the bolt periodically. Chrome finish has seen rain but not salt or snow, and it is holding up well. Rubber cap to protect the cylinder works well, has not come off during use.


This is exactly what I needed for my Chevy Sonic. I installed a Draw-Tite Sport hitch from etrailer (installed by myself) and ordered the Kuat Transfer one bike platform rack. The assembly was easy with the detailed instructions. It seems solid and does not rattle or rock around with the anti-rattle hitch lock. The bicycle is easily added and removed. I will add reflective tape so that it is visible to drivers behind me.


This lock fit an old bike rack that was branded with a Volvo sticker and has 3/8 pin threads. Lock works well and the rubber cap over the lock is tight and snug to keep out dirt and debris from the mechanism. I threw a rubber washer between the hitch and the bolt head to avoid scratching. I'm glad to have found a replacement part that works with 2" hitch.


I love my lock on trailer hitch. I use it for my bike rack. I don't have to worry if someone will take my bike rack.


I bought this lock as a substitute for similar lock for Thule Bike racks. It works well because thread pitch is the same. (m12x1.75). It is very slightly shorter than Thule product and orientation of lock cylinder lets it fit in tight locations such as my Audi, where the light socket is very close to the hitch receiver.

Only disappointment is that lock cylinder is different from Thule's so you cnanot coordinate systems with single keys.

(And the Thule lock is $59..95!)


Fast shipping! My order was shipped the day after I placed the order. Package came in good packaging. Assembly of the bike rake was easy and the hitch lock works well. An etrailer represent sent me an email when my items were delivered. I am happy with the customer service and product quality. I would order from etrailer again. The price is better than [online retailer] and other websites.
