Recommended Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for 2-Inch Trailer Hitch


Hello I have a truck with a 2 inch receiver on it. My recover is loose and rattles really bad when I pull my 5x8 trailer. I am looking at the various solutions you guys have and I see most are labeled only for hitch accessories? Are there any lockable style anti rattle solutions that I can get since folks here like to steal the recievers if they arent locked? It must be able to pull a trailer with a side by side ATV. Thanks!

If your ball mount has a hollow shank like # C45036 then you can use an anti-rattle hitch lock like # 63232 or # PS63100. These install inside the ball mount shank and will lock your ball mount to your hitch receiver tube while they help reduce the play in the receiver tube.

The best anti-rattle performance will come from a dedicated product like the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II, part # BX88224. This does not lock but it could be used along with a separate standard hitch lock like # e98880. Since this unit holds the shank of the ball mount with both vertical and lateral pressure, thanks to its two u-bolts, it will provide superior anti-rattle performance.
