Video Transcript for Swagman Bike Carriers 2 inch Threaded Hitch Pin and Clip Replacement Review

Dustin: Hey, everybody. Dustin here Today, we're going to be taking a look at the replacement anti-rattle bolt for Swagman bike racks for two inch hitches. So if you've lost your anti-rattle bolt or it's become damaged and won't thread in, this is going to be a great option. A lot of questions we get on our website, are, "Is it going to work with my particular bike rack" Well, I'll help you figure that one out here real quick.If you have a Swagman bike rack, these are for Swagman bike racks only, that only has a two inch shank on it then you're all set. By that I mean there's a solid one-piece shank that goes into your receiver hitch, not an adapter sleeve like you see here on our Swagman XC.

This does work with two inch hitches, but it's got an adapter on it that allows us to also work with inch and a quarter hitches. And this will not thread it in there. You'll need a different anti-rattle bolt for that, which you can also pick up here if you are missing your anti-rattle bolt, you're going to have a lot of problems. Most prominently, you're not going to be able to secure your bike rack to your hitch. It's not going to be safe going down the road.

And of course you will get all the rattles. If you we're able to secure it without using an anti-rattle bolt, you just found a smaller pin and put it in there, you're going to have this problem the whole way down the road. You don't want that. Get the real part and do it the right way. I'll show you how.So it's an exact replacement for your previous anti-rattle bolt.

Once you get your hitch pin hull and your hole and your receiver lined up, just go ahead and start threading it in by hand. Now you're not going to able to get it all the way by hand. You can use a seven eighths inch socket to tighten it down the rest of the way.Once you get it tightened down, secure it on the other side with the clip. Now having owned a Swagman bike rack with an anti-rattle bolt before, you know the benefits of it. Just to show you again.

You remember what it looked like without our anti-rattle bolt Now we've got it tight. Can shake the whole thing, and it's not nearly as wobbly as it was before. That's going to be great for you, your bikes, and your vehicle going down the road. And that's going to complete our look at the replacement anti-rattle bolt for Swagman bike racks for two inch hitches.

Replacement Threaded Hitch Pin and Clip for 2" Shanks on Swagman Bike Carriers - P5901

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (83 Customer Reviews)

This hitch pin replaces a lost or damaged threaded hitch pin and clip for your Swagman bike carrier that has a 2" shank with a threaded hitch pin hole.


This hitch pin and clip were the perfect match!!! Thank you for providing such great information on the pin so I would know exactly which one to order for my need!


I ordered this to replace a missing threaded hitch pin for an older Outfitter Adventure system bike rack. It fit perfectly. (2" square hitch)


Exactly what I was looking for. Fit the Swagman bike carrier perfectly. Price was very reasonable. It is hard to find small but unique parts like this. Glad etrailer carries the small stuff.


quality product, prompt shipment


I ordered a used Reese Pro Series bike rack from another vender and it was missing the anti rattle hitch pin. No local hardware stores carried it. This hitch pin fits perfectly. Thank you etrailer.

Update:Still working great

Works perfectly


Exactly what I needed ! Fit perfectly


We lost the threaded hitch pin for our 10 year old Swagman bike carrier. Swagman tech support gave us the part number and etrailer had it in stock.
The service from etrailer and Swagman was superb and saved the day. We had the part in our hands in 3 days.
Kudos to Swagman for providing parts for 10 year old models and having the right answer within minutes of answering their support line.

etrailer has the best customer service of any company I have dealt with. I needed a few dollar part and they went out of their way to assure it was the right one. I recommend them and my family uses them. Son in law just ordered and received a new trailer hitch. He was amazed by their service. Keep up the great work


Product was wrong size for for the Swagman bike carrier. After several correspondence, it was determined that return shipping was cost prohibitive. I was dissatisfied with the result.

Thank you for your review on P5901.This specific threaded hitch pin is designed for Swagman bike racks with 2 inch hollow shanks. If you have a 1-1/4 shank on your bike rack this hitch pin will not work for your application. If you have a 1-1/4 shank on your swagman bike rack then I recommend part # P5902

Right part .- website had enough details so I knew I was actually ordering the correct pin.


Great service and people.
Thank you.


It came early. It's not black. I added a flat washer and lock washer.


This specific bolt pin and clip fit our needs perfectly. We were so pleased with the purchase. It worked exactly as we needed on our recently acquired bike rack carrier (Reese’s Outfitter Bike Carrier). I thank your customer service department for the comment to another customer confirming that the pin/clip in your warehouse would fit in the above mentioned carrier; that was why I took the chance and ordered. Perfect fit!!


Works as advertised. Good replacement for the threaded pin I misplaced.

Just fine. Even found the pin I misplaced. Good to have a spare handy.
Jeff - 09/01/2021


The service was great and I received the part earlier than expected. Unfortunately the part didn’t fit my bike rack receiver but it wasn’t worth sending it back due the low price of the part. I would definitely buy from etrailer again but would make sure I bought the right part first.


Needed to order an extra threaded hitch pin and cotter pin for my new Swagman platform bike rack (ordered for my travel trailer). Used the original hitch pin and cotter pin to secure a hitch extension I'd bought separately, from another vendor. It came with a hitch pin I was uncomfortable with because it only went halfway through the hitch extension,. whereas the bike rack pin fit nicely and went all the way through so I used it in that application. Called etrailer and they answered fairly quickly, found the model of bike rack I'd bought, found the correct hitch pin set, and I received the set within about a week. Pleased with their service and item quality.


Price, product and customer service was excellent. You will get my return business when necessary. Thank you.

Perfect! Great!
Allen - 06/18/2021


Exactly what I was looking for. Shipped next day. Works every bit as good as original.
Very happy.

Still in great shape after a year. Good purchase.

Our 2nd hand bike rack didn't come with the hitch pin and I have never seen one like this. I was so glad that etrailer had just what I needed. It was very helpful to read the questions and answers to make sure I had the right one.


I called to get some help with exchanging an order. Katie D answered the phone. She was kind and helpful and patient. She guided me through the process for returning an item, answered all my questions, and placed the order for the correct item. She provided great service and I could hear her smiling on the other end of the phone. I was curious where etrailer is located and when I asked Katie D, she graciously engaged in a little conversation. Made me feel like etrailer really appreciated an order that amounted to only about $xx bucks. Thank you Katie D! Thank you etrailer!


The products (hitch pin and clip) that I received in the mail were the exact products that I needed. The photos were extremely helpful in making my decision since my bike carrier has the Reese label on it.


I ordered another hitch pin to use in my Ram Truck 2500, thinking that I would have to weld an extension on the pin for my 2.5" receiver. Happily, this pin came with the capacity for either a 2" or a 2.5" receiver. It came quickly after ordering. So happy!!!


Exactly what is needed to attach a bike rack to the back of my car because the rack itself needs to plug into a 2" trailer hitch and not fall out. This hitch pin ensures that can't happen.


etrailer never disapoints. Great price points and delivery times. Bolt is for a receiver mounted bike rack/carrier. It is the correct one so all is good.
