Lock Compatibility with Swagman S63400 Hitch Bike Rack


i bought the Rola TX-102 item 59400 to use with my Draw-Tite trailer hitch item 76138. All works fine, except I wanted to swap the Rola anti-rattle bolt for a locking J-pin. So, I had bought the Tow Ready j-pin item 63201. it fits fine on the hitch alone, but doesnt fit through the Rola bolt hole, which is a threaded opening. The threads on the J-pin are the same size as the threads on the Rola bolt hole, but then the J-pin widens past the threads, so I cant get the J-pin fully ed to seat it properly and get the lock on. Can you recommend a locking J-pin that will fit with the Rola TX-102? Many thanks!


Expert Reply:

The Swagman hitch bike rack # S63400 cannot be used with a J-pin type lock when it is installed in a 2-inch hitch like Draw-Tite # 76138. This is noted on the bike rack's page but you have to scroll down a bit to find this note.

You can lock the rack to your hitch by using the Locking Anti-Rattle, Threaded Hitch Pin for Swagman Hitch Racks part # S64029.
