etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock for Flat Lip 1-7/8" and 2" Ball Couplers - Aluminum - Silver - e98893

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (90 Customer Reviews)

Use this sturdy, rustproof aluminum coupler lock with a sleek silver powder coat to help prevent trailer towaway theft. Fits standard 1-7/8" and 2" ball couplers with flat lips. Can be keyed alike to match other etrailer locks.


This lock works great for my boat trailer that has a "lip" on the hitch.


One year in these are holding up great. I leave them outside on each of my trailers and both still operate smoothly.


This product fits my Yakima "Rack and Roll" kayak trailer extremely well. I assume it will prove a reasonable deterrent to someone trying to make off with it.


Fits great on my big tex trailer with 2” ball hitch. Not sledge hammer proof, but would be difficult and noisy to pry off with a big bar. Uses normal cut keys too, so little chance of breaking the key off or stripping a round hex key. It is made of aluminum, which is great for corrosion resistance, but steel might be stronger. The locking pin is stainless steel though. Nice powder coat finish, too.


Product is as advertised and customer service was helpful on the phone
Only problem is the two locks I ordered were to be keyed alike and they came with separate keys


Great communication and follow up on all my orders. Where I plan to go for all my trailer needs.


We bought 3 of these locks, and they all work very well. I would recommend them to anyone.(Jerome retired on March 4th, and I'm the new maintenance manager. John Hackenberg, [email protected] Thanks.


The items are fine. However, you did not send me "keyed alike" units, as I ordered. They use different keys.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

Seems to be well built, and sturdy. Priced right!


Excellent lock, low profile and fits ni ce.


Simple and easy


Not sure it would withstand a hammer st rike.


Great product and delivery was fast. Enjoy the services that
e-trailer provides. Quality product and efficient delivery. .


Appears the quality and fit are good. Simple and functional.


Easy to use and will do the job


I will be using the coupler lock for my boat trailer in conjunction with a master lock trigger lock. I selected the trailer coupler lock due to its design and easy installation.


Does what I needed it to do, great prod ucts!


Four Stars because nobody has tried to steal it. Yet. However, I'm pleased with the fit on my 1 7/8" trailer tongue. I feel pretty sure a sledge hammer would knock it off, but how many thieves are packin' sledge hammers?! I also put a Masterlock on the trailer latch. At this point, I would recommend both!


Goes on super easy and is an upgrade over the old ball-and-clamp style. Watch etrailer videos, they're very helpful. A very professional company!


I much prefer this style that wraps around the lip of the tongue rather than the U-Bolt style that goes around the top. Less points of access for potential thiefs. Fits perfectly. No slop for pry bars and the like.


It's a theft deterrent and will not stop a thief equipped with some simple trick from getting your trailer. But better than no protection.
It's a simple to install device.


This works great ! I will sleep better now. Real fast shipping too . Thanks


Excellent item. Well made, fair price. Ordered 2 different models (2 in. and 2 5/16 in.), and they did indeed match the keys for the two different locks.


Great product! Just what I wanted for a good price. Fast service!


Works great

  • Are Replacement Keys Available for Locks
    There will be a number on both the lock core and keys for coupler locks. This number is usually a zero followed by two other numbers. The three digit numeric value will correspond to the correct cut needed to operate the lock. If you already have an lock and just need the replacement keys then you you need to find the key number and we would be happy to help.

    The etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock for Flat Lip 1-7/8" and 2" Ball Couplers # e98893 comes with 2 keys and if you're ordering more than one of these you'll select the "keyed alike" option from the drop down menu on the product page to have matching keys. Otherwise if you're wanting more than 2 keys for this coupler lock you'll have to order the coupler lock and then place an order for the key number that came with the coupler lock.

  • Recommended Coupler Lock for Lipped Coupler 4-1/2-Inches Wide
    The Coupler Lock # e98893 fits standard lipped couplers for 1-7/8-inch and 2-inch hitch balls up to a maximum width (including the lip) of 3-3/4-inches. Instead you can use our Coupler Lock # e98895 for 2-inch and 2-5/16-inch balls since this works with lipped couplers up to 4-1/2-inches in width.

  • Coupler Lock Suggestion For A U-Haul 6x12 Cargo Trailer
    I did some research and it looks like your U-Haul trailer will accept 1 7/8"- 2" ball, so # e98893 will be the correct part, although you should double check yourself. If it turns out yours is larger than that, part # e98894 will work accept a 2" to 2 5/16" ball and would be the correct choice.

  • Best Coupler Lock for Demco Channel Tongue Coupler
    My best recommendation is the etrailer Surge Brake Coupler Lock # e98887. This lock fits into either one of the two pin holes of your coupler # 12564. This locks your latch into place so one can't disconnect it from your tow vehicle. It also works when your trailer is stored unhitched since thieves can't hitch your trailer to their vehicle with this lock in the way. Another popular lock for trailer storage is the etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock for Flat Lip Couplers # e98893. This completely...

  • Replacement Key for etrailer Coupler Lock
    Assuming the lock you have that is similar to the # e98893 is an etrailer lock, we do have replacement keys available. Since you have a key already you can look at the key for the 3 digit number engraved on the key. Once you have this number you will be able to choose the correct replacement key for a spare. For example, if you have 014 on your key then the # e88UR would be the correct spare. If you have a different lock brand feel free to reach out and let me know what you have along...

  • Straight Tongue Coupler for 2 Inch Channel With Mounting Holes 2-1/2 Inches Apart
    We do have one coupler that fits a 2 inch channel with mounting holes that are spaced 2-1/2 inches apart, the Dutton-Lainson Coupler # DL23870. The holes are also about 3/4 inch from the bottom of the coupler. This coupler accepts a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball and has a 2,000 lb capacity. If you need a lock I recommend the etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock # e98893. I have added a link to a video review I recommend checking out as well of the Dutton-Lainson Coupler # DL23870.

  • Is DeadBolt BLOCKHEAD Trailer Coupler Lock Compatible with Demco Coupler 12113-95
    Yes it will! The Trailer Coupler Lock # e98893 is absolutely compatible and will fit the Demco Trailer Coupler # DM12113-95. The Demco coupler has a flat lip, as you can see by the accompanying photo, and this lock was designed to work with flat lip couplers so it's a perfect match to keep your trailer safe. I have added a link to a video review of the DeadBolt lock for you to take a look at.

  • Can Multiple Master Lock Trailer Coupler Locks ML389DAT Be Ordered With Same Key
    I do have options but the Master Lock Trailer Coupler Lock part # ML389DAT does not have a keyed-like option so even if you were to order multiple at the same time, they still would not come with the same key most likely. Therefore, it would not be possible to order a new lock that uses the same key as the one you already have. The etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock part # e98893 for example does have a keyed-alike option so you could order multiple at the same time with the same key. I have...

  • How to Use the etrailer Coupler Lock for Flat Lip Couplers
    I can absolutely explain how the etrailer Trailer Coupler Lock for your flat lip coupler works, and it is extremely simple. What happens is you will slide the lock over your flat lip coupler, and push the pin up - it won't take any strength at all, you can do it with a finger. With the pin up, just turn the key and you're done; it's locked to the coupler. When you want to remove it, turn the key in the opposite direction and the pin will come down. That's literally all there is to it!...

  • Recommended Coupler, Coupler Latch and Locking Hitch Pins All Keyed Alike
    I may have a solution for you, but those MasterLock trailer locks you were looking at unfortunately cannot be keyed alike, so you'd need some different options. For the coupler locks I recommend using the etrailer 2-5/16" coupler lock # e98894 or etrailer 1-7/8" or 2" coupler lock # e98893. For the latch lock I recommend using the etrailer # e98885 and for the locking hitch pins I recommend using the # e98882. You could have all of these parts keyed alike so you'd only need 1 key.

  • What is the Distance Between Bolt Holes on 1-7/8
    From center to center, the distance between the two side bolt holes on # CT-2003-Z is 2-1/4". On # DL13728 the distance is 3". Both trailer couplers fit a 3" channel tongue, a 1-7/8" ball and are rated at 2,000 lbs. If you are replacing your coupler, it may also be time to replace your coupler lock. I recommend the Coupler Lock, # e98893, which works with 1-7/8" couplers.

    We have numerous hitch and coupler locks available. I'm assuming you're looking for a coupler lock that would prevent somebody from hitching your trailer up and taking off with it, is that correct? If your trailer uses a simple latch style coupler like part # BD580403. The locking pin would insert through the hole in the coupler latch, and would prevent the coupler from being opened.
