Question:

We have a bandw tow and stow 3 ball 14.5K hitch model BWTS20048B for a 2-1/2inch square receiver - where can I get a good quality locking pin to match this capacity. Thanks

Helpful Expert Reply:

Hitch pins don't actually bear any of the weight of the trailer so they are not rated for trailer weight like what you are referencing. The tongue weight of the trailer pushes so hard down on the hitch tube that it binds it up in the hitch preventing the hitch pin from bearing the weight.

A locking hitch pin that would work well would be the part # e98881 which is for 2-1/2 inch hitches like what your # BWTS20048B is being used in.
