  • Pin diameter: 5/8"
  • Inside width of lock: 3-1/2"
  • Compatibility: fits 2" ball mounts, bike racks and cargo carriers with a hollow shank

This hitch pin's unique design improves the towing experience by protecting the vehicle's powertrain and safely minimizing that annoying "clanking" sound. Engineered to fit 2" ball mounts, it features an anti-rattle nut enclosure that slides inside the ball mount. A 5/8" stainless steel threaded pin clinches the nut securely to the side of the receiver tube, reducing "wiggle room" between the tube and the ball mount. To prevent theft, the hitch pin includes a brass lock with a rubber dust cover to block out debris.

Stainless Steel Locking, Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin for 2" Trailer Hitches - SR25219

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (245 Customer Reviews)

Silence that obnoxious "clanking" noise that occurs while towing. This locking hitch pin adapts to any 2" ball mount or rack device. An insert fitted with a nut slides inside the ball mount to pull it tightly against the receiver tube.


Works exactly as described. Secures my Go Rhino bumper step, and keeps it from rattling. Only problem is I wish the bolt head was 3/4". Most socket sets don't go beyond 3/4", so you'll need a 7/8" box wrench or Cresent wrench to install/remove it.



Its still performing great. No rust and holding tight.


Works great no rattle or rust. I recommend this item



It still works great. After one year I still recommend this product!


Arrived quickly. Easy to install with the excellent video and instructions. I installed on my 2012 Forester with the Curt hitch I had previously purchased from etrailer. The locking hitch pin completely stopped my hitch rattle.


Exactly what I needed. Even though my receiver cargo carrier fits pretty well, there is an slight unavoidable wobble. This pin provides great security and the ability to tighten the tongue to the receiver hitch eliminating ANY wobble. Great device!

Captain S.


Still love it. It has withstood year round use and works perfectly.


Very well madea and secure locking bolt. It will keep your hitch locked for sure. make sure you have extra room for that lock.


Excellent product. And as always great customer service. I had to customize mine a little bit because of my specific application using an adapter to use 1in 1/4 accessory on a 2-inch hitch. I just had to shave a little plastic off of the nut holder.


Works good when installed but it is a bit cumbersome to get the plastic retainer to stay in. The retainer doesn’t grab very well.


Makes everything nice and rattle free!


Great product, fit and finish. There is a trick to getting this little guy installed. Get the bolt near tight, where you still have play in the hitch. You need the play to get the silver shield on the top of the lock to enter the receiver so the lock can lock onto the pin. Once its locked onto the pin, tighten up the bolt and you are done. No wobble, nice and secure.


Just bought a new Tacoma ... wanted one of these for when I have to hitch up a trailer ... haven't towed anything yet, but sure does keep my hitch cover tight! Was very easy to install ...


Its awesome, works great and no more noise in camper receiver.

Brian H.


Still love it


The lock is a great fit for my rack and feels good quality. It was easy to install as well and anti-rattle bolt works great!


I know I am a bit OCD but the rattling before installing this hitch pin was really unnerving. The quiet hauling just adds confidence that everything is secure and I can focus on other things.


I Have Had One Of These For About Ten Years The Plastic Wore Out So I Purchased A New One No More Rattle From My Trailer Receiver Hitch:)


I wanted to wait to review this until I actually installed it in my bike hitch. I tried it on my 2013 Ford Truck and our 2013 Lexis. I was concerned in that the lock actually fit into the hitch hole and wanted to make sure that it did-- and yes, it did on both. Perhaps it is not important but I recommend that you install the lock before you tighten the bolt all the way. The lock has little tolerance for movement so if the bolt is a little off to one side, you might not be able to get the lock on. It’s all good however; you will only make this mistake once. It would be nice if the nut was more secure but I experienced no problem with it which most likely is why they did not do more to secure it. I had an idea that I would just weld a nut to the inside or the hitch and not have to deal with the black plastic holder until it occurred to me that the black device allows this to be self centering. A very good idea. My wife is the one who wanted the bike rack so I let her install it without any advice. She did various things wrong but figured it out. She did not push on the bolt hard enough to get it into the centering of the nut (another good design item) and she tightened the bolt before putting the lock on and it was off center just enough so the lock would not push into the hole. Once she loosened it a bit, it went right in and she retightened just fine. It secures the bike mount to the hitch very well. I would, and most likely will, buy it again. Good value I rate my wife a 5. Nothing else The video is priceless. Play it



Al, one smart fella there! And good marks for etrailer too.


This lock is a real quality item. I am looking forward to using it to secure my new bike hitch rack! My only complaint is with the shipping company who took my part all over the country before delivering it ten days later. I'm used to much faster service.

Steven O.


It has been great! I have had no problems with it not opening easily or becoming hard to lock. I would buy it again!


It fits as advertised, no more rattle when I pull my 22' boat.

Juan F.


It works so good I even forgot about it. No rattling, no noise, no movement. I love it.


This product keeps the receiver hitch tight and quiet. Easy to install and locks. Get one of these if you want to quiet down the receiver hitch or keep a Hitch-All or bike rack from moving around.



The Softride trailer hitchlock is still nice and snug. No issues. I have one for each vehicle.


It appears to be a good product. Hopefully it holds up to winter weather.


It does the job. Just what I was looking for.


This fit my Alpha Tow bar and it tighten up very well. The lock and bolt are well made and the bolt had a lock washer for the bolt end. You could access the lock easily and I found that the lock should be added before doing the final tightening for the bolt.

Tom O.


Still working fine, I did have to retighten once, but that is all. I will check on occasion to make sure it does not work loose. There is no slack or rattle when tight.


This hitch lock was easy to install and works as advertised. No more rattle. It makes it slightly more difficult to connect the trailer chain hook but it's not a problem.

Albert K.


After a year this hitch lock has worked flawlessly. I have not even needed to tighten it up.


Reduced rattle and swinging of the motorcycle carrier, have similar concept on my Thule bicycle carrier but this one is so much cheaper and does the same job but seems more solid actually


Great product, no rattle. etrailer shipped on time, great company to deal with.


I've had this hitch lock for a year now and it works perfectly. Stops trailer rattling in the receiver completely. Some reviewers stated that the lock didn't engage for them and came off. They are doing it wrong! The lock has a pin sleeve that needs to go through the receiver hole to snap into place and engage the lock. If the bolt pin is fully tightened before locking, a misalignment in the receiver hole can make things more difficult to go through the receiver hole and fully snap on to the pin. Thread the pin but don't tighten down, engage the lock over the pin and then fully tighten the threaded portion of the pin. Works just right and always secure.

  • Anti-Rattle Device for a 2015 Toyota Tacoma Hitch
    The Stainless Steel Locking, Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin # SR25219 that you referenced is designed to fit 2 inch hitches and would work on your vehicle as long as the ball mount you plan to use has a hollow shank. I attached a review video for you to check out as well Actually hitch pins do not bear any weight of the trailer. The tongue weight of the trailer binds the ball mount up in the hitch so much that the weight of the trailer does not get transferred to the hitch pin at all....

  • Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin Recommendation for a Yakima Bike Rack with a 2 Inch Shank
    You can use the Softride Locking, Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin, # SR25219, as long as the shank of your Yakima bike rack is hollow. The block will insert into the shank of the bike rack and the threaded pin will thread through and lock. If your Yakima bike rack has a threaded insert in the shank, then it should have come with a threaded pin. If this is the case, then let me know the model of your bike rack and I can see if we have a replacement pin for your bike rack. If the threaded insert...

  • Recommendation for Anti Rattle Lock Softride or Lets Go Aero
    I like the SoftRide part # SR25219 as it will be easier to keep the piece that inserts in the shank of the ball mount in place when it comes time to try and line the hitch pin up with it. It also has a ton of positive from our customers who have bought and used it so I know you will like it as well.

  • Minimizing Sway on Kuat Beta Bike Rack When Using Adapter
    When using adapters, the play you are experiencing is a common problem. When using accessories in a trailer hitch, sometimes they are a perfect fit, sometimes they are a bit loose and other times they are so tight that you must file the accessory down a bit. Because, there is not always a perfect fit, there are anti-rattle devices made. One option is the Stainless Steel Locking, Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin # SR25219 that you could use on the 2 inch receiver end. I have included a product...

  • Softride Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock Should Work on Any Hitch
    The Softride anti-rattle hitch lock, part # SR25219, is threaded to match the padlock portion of the lock. A nut placed inside the receiver opening aids in clamping whatever hollow accessory you are using to the side of the receiver opening. It should work on any hitch, including your factory installed Jeep hitch.

  • Solution for Installing SoftRide Hitch Lock in Multiple Hitch Accessories
    Since additional nuts and retainers are not available as separate items the best option you'd have would be to buy multiple sets of the # SR2519 which you could use entirely for each hitch accessory you have or you could use just the nut and retainer and use the one lock and bolt. I checked our other similar hitch locks and none of just the portion of the lock that fits into the shank of the hitch accessory.

  • Installing Softride SR25219 Anti Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin and Lock
    To install the Softride # SR25219 anti-rattle hitch lock, you'd run the bolt down all the way. This pulls the shank of the bike rack tightly up against the inside of the receiver tube, preventing the bike rack from moving around in the receiver tube. When the bolt is tightened, you can then install the lock. If you click the provided link, you can see a product demonstration video showing how the lock works.

    Per my contact at Softride, their stainless steel locking anti-rattle hitch pin you referred to, part # SR25219 was lengthened about 1-1/2 years ago so that it will be compatible with the extra width of the OEM receiver tube on your 2012 Tacoma. The anti-rattle hitch pin would be a great choice for you as long as the shank of the ball mount or accessory you would use it with is hollow (most are).

    The pin on the # SR25879 has 3-1/2" of usable span.

    The part # 63232 is a great universal style design that will fit hollow shank accessories like most ball mounts that fit 2 inch hitches and the SoftRide part # SR25219 that you mentioned also is basically the same. Because of how popular the # 63232 is with our customers and the fact the key for the core is at a 90 degree angle which makes it easier to access than the key being on the end of the # SR25219 I would recommend the # 63232.
