the hitch lock i got with that order was useless (for now) to me because it was sold compatible with the Lock N Roll Articulating trailer hitch item 336VS501 that i bought from you 2-3 yrs ago; but actually it is for a bigger hole. I do not want to make the hole bigger on the Lock N Roll because there is no much room there, so i will have to get a less diameter lock later on.

The Lock N Roll Articulating trailer hitch part # 336VS501
Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitch for 2" Receivers - Vehicle Side - 11,000 lbs
uses two different pin sizes. The latching pin has a diameter of one half inch while the hitch pin hole diameter is five eights. This lock is meant to be used with the hitch pin hole diameter.

Excellent fit and finish. Unit is stout and veery well made. Still looks great one year out (truck lives in garage when not driven). Changing from one ball size to the next is easy and fast. Pin requires a small amount of lube every couple months to keep everything smooth and functions as good today as when new. Chrome finish on balls is holding up well. I use the hitch couple times a week so I do not keep in the stowed position, however, the stowed position is very clean and would an excellent feature for those who tow infrequently. Overall, very happy with this hitch. Much prefer this unit over storing and changing out the yoke as before.

- e98880

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

great it is used a lot

Straight out of the box looks and feels great. Fits nice and snug inside the 2" Curt hitch receiver. Too early to comment on service life and durability under wet weather conditions but hope for good desired outcome.

No issues after a year of use and exposure to rain and frequent car wash treatments. Thanks for checking and you are welcome

Impressive locking bolt! This item meets and exceeds my initial impressions and security requirements for a sound and secure locking pin. Let’s get it on the road and see how she runs! Kudos to Jessie at etrailer customer service for making this purchase recommendation- what a breeze!

- e98880

Great products made in the usa! The ordering tools on the website made it easy and the shipping was very fast. I will always order from etrailer for all my trailering needs.

- e98880

Good quality metal construction, good fit through hitch. Key insert does not jam with a little silicone lubricant as protection. Easy to lock and unlock

- e98880

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.

still works perfect

I've had two of these locks and are on a summer rig, work great, no problems so far.

- e98880

These are great, strong, and keep your bars or hitch covers safe from theft!

- e98880

I bought this at the same time as one for my 1-1/4" hitch and was able to get them keyed to match. Well made, and fits well too! Easy to use! Love it!

- e98880

This lock is perfect for locking a hitch. I wasn't sure if it would work, but it does, and whatever you have in your hitch receiver is secure

- e98880

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 purchased this for my husband he was pleased with the quality and ease of attaching it to his hitch.

I love having one key for all my trailers hitches

Absolutely great, even after a year going through winter it works like new.

Very fast and efficient service. Locks seem solid and good quality, super excited to have them all keyed alike. Happy with purchase so far.

- e98880

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!

Hello, I was installing this lock to lock my also ordered Steelers hitch but it seems to be just short to lock securely. I’ve attached a picture of my hitch. Pls advise

An excellent lock. The 2 5/8" span did not work for me. Hopefully, I can return it for one with a larger span.

Customer Service will reach out to you about a return. Perhaps you need a 3 inch span with item # BD580405

Great product! Hitch cover is still on the truck with no signs of damage or tampering!

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.

This is a perfect fit for our 2018 Jayco Greyhawk and DEMCO tow bars for our TOAD, a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk. It keeps the tow bars secure.

Etrailer had good selection of locks to choose from. I'm very happy with my order. I would recommend them to a friend.

- e98880

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 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!

We haven’t used the hitch lock so don know how to rate it.

  • How to Remove the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Part # e98880
    The Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # e98880 is threaded on the end where the lock is located. Once the key has been inserted into the locking cylinder you will then need to rotate it counterclockwise until the threaded section is no longer attached. You may need to hold the opposite end of the lock to help keep it from spinning with the locking core. You can see this process done in the video I have attached for you.

  • How To Measure For Hitch Receiver Lock Pin Span
    The span you refer to on the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # e98880 is the usable length of the pin. To properly measure for this, you can measure the outside walls of your hitch at the pin hole. If you measured, and got 2-5/8", you'd need a hitch pin with at least a span of 2-5/8" like # e98880,. Additionally, you'd need to measure the diameter of the pin hole, so you can choose the correct diameter pin as well. Usually class I and II hitches have a 1/2" diameter...

  • Can I Get 4 Hitch Locks Keyed Alike In Two Different Lengths?
    The best I can do to get you 4 locking pins is give you the two pins of the same sizes keyed alike. For your 5/8 inch longer pins, I recommend the extra long hitch receiver lock # e98881 and for your standard size I recommend the receiver lock # e98880. If you are cool with the locks being longer, you can get all 4 keyed alike and they will function fine, but just look a little different.

  • What Differences Between etrailer Locking Hitch Pin e98880 and e98882
    There's not really a reason other than personal preference between the chrome finish # e98880 and the stainless steel # e98882; I happen to prefer the stainless steel option but the chrome does give you a bit nicer finish on the lock which is important to some users. Both locks will do a great job of fighting off corrosion and they can both be keyed alike to other etrailer locks.

  • Is Stainless Steel or Chrome etrailer Hitch Lock Harder to Cut
    Technically, chrome is harder than stainless steel but it isn't going to be a difference between stopping a thief or not stopping one. If a thief really wants to, they'll be able to remove any lock, locks are more of a theft deterrent and both require effort to be removed. There aren't specific alloys for the pins and locks, they are made of steel (though all steel is technically an alloy, of course.

    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.

  • Removing Corroded Hitch Lock
    If liquid wrench or a WD-40 or PB Blaster type product did not work, you will have to cut off the lock. I have taken them off with little difficulty using a Dremel Tool or an angle grinder with a cut-off wheel. Make sure to wear eye protection. 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.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock Recommendation for a 1997 Ford F-150
    The trailer hitch lock # 5201 is designed to fit in a 5/8 inch diameter hitch pin hole found on a Class III, IV, or V trailer hitch. The span or part that goes through the receiver and accessory is 3-1/2 inches long, overall it is 7-1/4 inches long so it is a fairly long lock. I personally like the flush mount type from etrailer, # e98880. The span is 2-5/8 inches so the 2 ends are flush with the receiver. This lock has a rubber cap on the lock end to protect it from the elements. I have...

    Trailer hitch pins and locks do not have an official capacity because they would be rated well beyond what the hitch and vehicle are capable of. In other words, the hitch or vehicle would fail long before the locking hitch pin # e98880 would.
