Expert Reply:

Hitch Pins like the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part # e98880, do not have a weight capacity listed. These are made of 5/8 inch diameter steel and other components you are towing with would break before one of these hitch pins would.

This hitch pin has an overall length of 6 inches and is designed to fit 2 inch receivers. This hitch pin has a covered key slot to help prevent corrosion. I have attached a link to a product review video for this hitch pin you can check out.
