Will SilentACT Anti-Rattle Lock Work With BikeWing Bike Rack?

Question:

I have the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4inch Item with the Lets Go Aero BikeWing-2 2-Bike Rack - 1-1/4inch and 2inch Hitches - Horizontal Wheel Mount Item # B01311 and after asking your company recommendations, it was suggested to use the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Accessories Lock - 1-1/4, 2, and 2-1/2inch Hitches Item # SHP2082. Can you please have someone test and verify this application to see if this would actually work because I cannot figure out how to get the anti rattle bolt onto the hitch or rack to secure it to the hitch. The issue appears with the spring nut as it cannot be properly inserted into the bike wing accessory hitch because of the threaded female hardware built into the bike wing hitch thus when inserting the hitch into the receiver it is not properly seated or even inserted into the receiving hitch to begin with. Please have someone test this to verify or if you have a video of this please provide a link. Thank you in advance

The SilentACT # SHP2082 will work with the BikeWing # LGA54FR; what you will need to do is simply not use the spring portion of the lock. It will otherwise work as intended. I've added links to video reviews of the lock for you to take a look at.

To secure your bikes to your BikeWing # LGA54FR I recommend the RockyMounts Hooligan Chain Lock # RKY3802. This lock is made steel, is cut-resistant and has a nylon sheath to prevent any type of scratches to your bikes. It includes three keys and weighs less than 3 lbs so it's easy to handle.

I've added a link to a video review of this lock for you to take a look at.
