Everything worked out well. On time and fits perfect. Attach hitch setup and my new Ridgeline. It comes with a 2" inch receiver and I have a full compliment of 1.25. stuff from my previous car. All from etrailer i must admit! so I needed the 2-1.25 reducer, a good lock, and the 7-4 reducer for my goodies! Thanks for the grest service

Most will never believe this, but i ordered this locking pin to use in conjunction with the other pin that is the exact same as this one. Except the 1st pin has been installed and in service since late 2009. I used it to hold a hitch in the receiver tube of my motorhome that coupled our hauler trailer to the motorhome. I recently decided we would start flat towing a car, instead of the hauler trailer with the expedition on it. so i needed one more locking hitch pin to use with the tow bar rise/drop receiver adapter. When i removed the first pin, i expected it to be rusty and not unlockable. SURPRISE, a little wd 40 in the key hole to aid in key insertion and BAM she unlocked and was clean as a whistle. it was a no brainer to order an exact duplicate for use now.

I could not be happier that I took my 'TOAD' and Travel Van to etrailer. The recommended Roadmaster towbar and accessories have performed great. I have logged approximately 10,000 miles with zero problems. The hookup and unhook operation is as close to painless as possible. I have not experienced any problems with the tasks. I highly recommend etrailer, the products they recommend and their professional installation.

I’ve had no issues with this lock. I have one key that works for 2 different locks on my boat. The vehicle hitch receiver lock and the boat surge brake coupler lock use the same key. Very efficient.

I've used these over a year for several multi-month long trips to secure a front hitch fora spare tire and for a supertruss mounted hitch extention on my truck when pulling trailers with my truck camper mounted. They've been used across off road desert and Northern winter roads with sand and salt. The locks fit snug and still easily spin to lock and unlock. It is great to have only one key for four locks!

Great product ,sturdy ,easy to use. I've had two other ones for about a year and they work well and look great. I know I will be using these for years to come, hassle free and would recommend this lock pin for sure. Thanks Tammie, Great Job

This is another well-made product. Unfortunately, the 2 5/8” span is not enough for the factory units on a Toyota Tundra or Tacoma. Another 5/16” is needed for the lock to catch. Score one for the manufacturer. Still…4 stars for a well-made receiver lock although it can’t be used on my Taco.

My husband is a proud Bluewater Vietnam Navy Veteran, celebrating his 50th year anniversary of coming home. My husband is retired & I decided to get a trailer hitchcover for his old truck, to compliment his combat veteran's license plate. While searching for a unique, eye catching hitchcover, I came across etrailer.com. The cover I chose is eye catching, unique & a sturdy heavy plastic. It was easy to install & the lock, purchased with it, will keep it in place! He loved the cover - and the price! PS: Still young at heart!

One year later after being installed in all kinds of weather including Florida salty air and the lock still works easily and there is no corrosion on the metal. I do squirt some WD-40 into the lock slot twice a year.

  • Does Hitch Pin Lock Have a Normal Use
    There is not necessarily a specific lifespan that can be counted on with hitch lock like your Blue Ox Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # BX8858.

    Trailer Hitch Pins like the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - Flush - 2-5/8" Span - Chrome # e98880 and # e98881 you were looking at do not have a specific weight rating due to them being so much stronger than the rest of the components used for towing.

A hitch cover gets inserted into the 2 inch receiver hitch.

    If liquid wrench or a WD-40 or PB Blaster type product did not work, you will have to cut off the lock.

Some will recommend trying a torch to heat the lock, but that will just mess up the tumblers and you will have to cut it off eventually.
