  • Oversize lock fits late-model trucks with wider, 2-1/2" receivers
    • Fits 2007-2010 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra with HD tow package
    • This lock is slightly too short for the 2011 and newer GMC factory 2-1/2" hitches (see e98881 if you have this vehicle)
  • Patented, stainless steel swivel head rotates 360 degrees for easy access
    • Brass keyway with aluminum casing conveniently faces toward you, not off to the side

Stainless Steel Trailer Hitch Lock for 2-1/2" Receivers by Master Lock - 1469DAT

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (417 Customer Reviews)

Secure your ball mount to your hitch with this rugged, innovative trailer hitch receiver lock. The lock's solid construction stands up to whatever the road and weather can dish out, and its swivel design makes locking and unlocking a snap.


Installed on 2012 Ford F-250 with the OEM 2.5" hitch. Nice fit, also really like the stainless steel construction since most of my towing is done in the winter towing a trailer full of snowmobiles on typical midwestern heavily salted roads. Nice rubber boot around lock with weather cap prevents salt/water intrusion and abrasion on hitch surfaces. Good looking anodized red handle/stop on other end. As mentioned earlier, weather seal o-ring on stem is slightly oversized and tends to push out rather than engaging hole in lock but a little lube on the o-ring before installation mitigated that issue. Service from etrailer is top notch - bar none.


The item metal bar was scratched up a lot but it was functional. I'm not sure if that is how they are made at the factory. It had a good fit on my Tahoe with a 2" hitch. I'll see how happy I am with it after a year of usage.


Purchased this hitch lock specifically because we were having trouble inserting our safety chains on receiver due to the length of our prior hitch lock. This lock gives us an added 0.5 inch, just what we needed. In addition I like the locking mechanism which has a rotation cam type lock vs the open cylinder with recessed ball bearings. I also appreciate this is stainless steel. I expect this lock to perform we for many years to come.


Works great !

Still works great I keep it oiled up
Randy - 05/28/2022


Got tired of switching balls so ordered the B&W Tow and Stow. etrailer came through again. Exceptionally fast shipping and delivery and product was well packaged. Will be installing shortly. Also got the locking Master Lock hitch pin to keep the Tow and Stow on my truck instead of someone else's!!

Havent lost my hitch yet so I guess the product works well! Thanks
Steven - 04/04/2021


So far I have bought a hitch , hook, lock and on its way is also the wiring harness for my Tacoma. gets the parts to me quicker than expected. So far everything has fit perfectly. No need to look any farther than etrailer for your trailer needs.


Shipping was late, and could not get an updated delivery date, till the day it showed up. Horrible shipping and notifications.


Perfect product to secure my Kuat bike rack


Durable locks that work well and unlock easy when needed.


Have used other master locks trying stainless steel type


Great quality, extremely fast ship and excellent communication. Very pleased with product and company. Very good product at an exceptional value!!


Shipped very quickly! I was informed on the tracking and the day and time delivery was made. Excellent customer service. The hitch looks and fits great, seems well built. Love it!


The product is just fine, but I could not believe it took almost two weeks shipping! Perhaps USPS as a shipping partner should be reevaluated.


Looks and feels high quality. ls also very functional and fixes two issues I had with my old locking pin: 1) the lock now faces to the back of vehicle, not to the side, making it easier to insert key and lock/unlock when space is tight and/or it's dark. 2) The locking head automatically click-locks onto the pin when you push on it - versus using one to hold it in place and the other to rotate the key.


I only purchase Master locks because it's easier to get spare keys made. This is the perfect lock to keep your hitch locked in place, so no one can steal it.

Great item, at a good price; and fast shipping from etrailer is why I go to them for all of my trailer needs. I give etrailer 5 stars, they are always on top of everything to ensure that you get the best deal there is.


I bought this lock to secure my B&W tow and stow hitch. I have one in use on another vehicle and am really happy with the product. etrailer had competitive pricing and quick delivery.


Hefty. Works good with my 2 1/2" receiver set-up.

Its been on my truck now for over a year and nobody has stolen my hitch! WooHoo!
Larry - 10/17/2020


Works great after a full year of use. The stainless version is much better than the steel rusty one I had before. I add a little penatrating oil every once in awhile regardless to keep the mechanisms loose. I would buy it again.


Placed my order, and it was shipped quickly. The order arrived on time as directed.


bought this less than a year ago and due to corrosion, they key doesn't go in the keyhole.

Thank you for your review. Because this lock is meant for cargo carriers and bike racks, it is assumed that it will be removed often and will not be in weather all of the time. To maintain this item, spray with lubricate like WD40 often.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 07/26/2021


This lock is much easier to install than others, because the key slot faces you as you lock or unlock, as opposed to the key slot being in line with the pin making it difficult to see the key hole. I did note that the packaging states that the pin is rated at 10,000 lbs (towing load). For a locking pin long enough to fit Class V receivers (2 1/2" square), this is not an adequate rating. My system needs a rating of at least 14,000 lbs, so this pin is technically not sufficient. I am not going to worry about it, since the rating is not stamped on the pin and I know that the 5/8" pin will definitely be strong enough for my use. I do think that the issue should be addressed in the website description, however.


Fast and Friendly Service. Highly recom mend.


I bought this lock, a draw tight hitch, a Curt wiring harness and a GMC LED light cover. The main reason I bought it was the information video about the hitch. It was a simple step by step video. Bought it for a very fair price and it installed just like they said. Arrived on time and was packed great. This is my site for future purchases. Rubber floor covering next on my list. Thanks for a great site to buy from.


Finally found a lock that fits my '08 Silverado HD, 2-1/2" receiver. Nice lock, very sturdy and fits great! Stainless won't rust like other locks out there.

Unfortunately, the hard winter killed my lock. The protective cap fell off and the key slot got so packed full of road salt that the key wouldnt go in. I finally had to cut the lock off. Lesson learned: make sure you keep the plastic cap on!
Bob D - 05/02/2014
My lock suffered the same fate but my protective cap stayed on. The key would go in but not turn to unlock. Tried spraying penetrating oil in lock for days and a little heat did not help. Had to drill out lock. The Chicago winters and all the salt destroyed the aluminum lock.
-- comment by: John - 01/02/2015


great product the ball hitch is the best one i have ever owned.
Construction business, I own three diesel trucks and five trailers either 2" or 2&5/16.
this is the easiest fastest to change of all the balls i've owned.
Wish i would have bought one for each vehicle.

  • Troubleshooting Jammed Key in Master Lock Stainless Steel Trailer Hitch Lock
    If the key is jammed in the Stainless Steel Trailer Hitch Lock # 1469DAT then try using some lubricant like WD40. Spray the lock and let it sit for a bit before trying to wiggle the key free. If you are still struggling to get it free then you either need to contact your local locksmith or simply replace the unit.

  • Will a Hitch Lock for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitches Fit a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    The Master Lock hitch lock # 1469DAT is designed with a longer pin that what is typically needed for a Class III, 2 inch trailer hitch since it was designed for wider 2-1/2 inch hitches. However, both 2 inch and 2-1/2 inch hitches have a 5/8 inch pin hole diameter so the lock will fit. The inside span is 3-1/4 inches and may appear very long in a 2 inch hitch. For the same lock designed for 2 inch trailer hitches use # 1480DAT. Its inside span is 2-3/4 inches. I have included links to...

    The Master Lock locking hitch pin # 1469DAT is likely going to fit your 2008 Toyota Sequoia with factory installed trailer hitch.
