Review of Andersen Locks AM3492

Today we're going to be reviewing part number AM3492. This Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Locks set for 2-inch and 2 1/2-inch trailer hitches. The anti-theft keyed locks are going to keep your adjustable ball mounts securely attached to your towed vehicle. This locking set is designed to work with the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount systems. Now, the hitch receiver lock is going to be designed for 2-inch by 2-inch, oversized 2-inch by 2-inch and 2 1/2-inch by 2 1/2-inch trailer hitches. These are made from a really nice stainless steel construction so it's going to office superior strength and durability. It's also going to feature a nice rust-proof design.

The stainless steel construction is highly resistant to rust and corrosion so these are going to last for many years. The shorter one is going to be the one that's going to secure our ball mount or our accessories to our hitch. Then this one, the longer one is going to be the adjustment locking pin for the Rapid Hitch units. Now they're going to offer a capacity of 10,000 pounds. You're also going to get two keys. These are keyed alike so they'll work on either lock.

The lock is going to be this portion here with the rubber dust cap on there. That adds a nice feature to it because it's going to help keep out any dust or moisture from gaining access to the inside of our lock. You're going to have one of those located on each pin. I'll go over a few dimensions real quick. The adjustment locking pin, it's going to give us a diameter of 5/8 of an inch. The inside width measuring from this point here to this point here, that's going to give us a measurement of 4 3/8 of an inch.

Then the overall length measuring from end to end is going to give us a measurement of 7 7/8 of an inch. Now taking a look at the hitch receiver lock, again that's going to give us a diameter of 5/8 of an inch with an inside width from this portion here to this portion here of about 3 1/2 inches. Then the overall length is going to measure from end to end at about 7 1/8 of an inch. Really easy system to use. To take lock off of one end of the pin all you have to do is remove the dust cap, place your key on the inside there and give it about a quarter of a turn. That's going to pop the lock right off.

I went ahead and pulled the Rapid Hitch mall mount from our inventory. That way I can show you how this unit operates. First thing that we need to do is we need to go ahead and secure this inside of our hitch. Again, for that one we're going to want to use the hitch receiver lock. It's simply going to go through there and then all we have to do is place that lock on the other side. It's going to click on in place which is going to release the key from the lock and then just reinstall that dust cap. That's going to be secured inside the hitch. It's not going to be able to be removed unless you unlock the lock with the included keys. Now, this longer one is going to be designed as the adjustment locking pin. We'll go ahead and take that lock off one end just like we did with the other pin. We'll find the setting that we want to set our ball mount at. Once we have that we can place that through. Place the lock on the other end and again it's going to release the key, letting us know it's locked into place and then our hitch balls are going to be securely locked in the position that we want them. That's going to do it for today's review of part number AM3492. This is the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Locks for 2-inch and 2 1/2-inch hitches. .
