Review of the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Lock


Colin: Hey, everyone. It's Colin here at etrailer. Today I want to take a quick minute and show you guys this trailer hitch receiver lock from etrailer. Now, basically this has been designed as a flush-mounted hitch lock so that whatever you have inside your hitch, whether it's a ball mount like we have right here, maybe a cargo carrier, or even a bike rack, you're going to be able to lock it inside your hitch and it's going to be a great theft deterrent.You can see with the flush mount design right here, it leaves very little to no room for anyone to get inside and try to pry out your lock. Now, right here we have a really nice GEN-Y ball mount. This is something that you want to make sure you protect inside your hitch so that no one can come up and just see a standard pin in there and can just take it right out and take your ball mounts.We do have a nice all weather dust cap right here.

That's going to help make sure that it keeps the dirt and debris outside of our lock cylinder, and it's also going to help it resist rust and corrosion. It's very easy to operate. We'll just insert our key. It is going to have a patented pick proof and screw lock in security. Basically what that means is that it's not just a lock, so no one can just come pick your lock and then take off the lock.

You have to screw it off with the key inside. Once you have it off, you can remove the pin. You can see the inside threads right there is what really makes it secure.With the outside of our hitch, we have a closer look at it. You can see it's almost an exact replacement for those standard 5/8 pins. It's going to be 2 5/8 inches in length on the inside dimensions.

If we go outside to outside, that's going to be 6 inches total, so you do want to make sure you have enough space on your hitch pin hole and on the outsides of it to get both the grip and the lock on the outsides of the hitch.We're also going to have a nice stainless steel construction. It's going to be very tough and durable, and that's also going to help it resist rust and corrosion.Once you've got your ball mount or wherever accessory you might be using inserted and the pin holes lined up, we're just going to put the pin through, bring the lock up, thread it on there. Nice little trick is just to hold the key and then spin the entire pin until it's all the way flush, and we'll remove the key, put the cap on. From there, you're going to be ready to go.Well, I hope this information helped you guys out, but that's going to do it for our look at the trailer hitch receiver lock from etrailer.
