Prologue

Work like it should on my class v hitch. The shorter one that states it fits a class v does not. Have to pay close attention to the rubber cover as it slips off easy. I might take a small triangle file and make a groove for the rubber ring to fit in. Bet it is too hard to do that. But duck tape will work also if i l loose it and i tape over the plug anyway if i am leaving it on for long. Have not lost it yet but i pay close attention. Oiled the key slot with syn oil and greased the shaft good where the lock is be fore using to prevent trouble. Do it once in a while and keep the key slot covered one way or another.

Trimax sxt5 premium 5/8 class v extended receiver lock Review (sxt5)

I like this design because it has nothing to hang down and it fits equally well inserted from either direction. The rubber cap keeps junk out of the lock's workings. It's strong enough to handle any load you will put on it from a class v hitch (tested to 40, 000 lbs). . It's good enough that this is my second of these locks. First is still great, needed one for another vehicle. -J. Morgan

Click to see NoticeTrimax Sxt5 Premium 5/8 Class V Extended Receiver Lock (Auto Accessory)"High marks on every point: clean design; high quality; and solid 'sure-lock' mechanism. The fourth and fifth item listed in the product information -. (4) lock can not "pop" open, . (5) lock can not be false locked -. That means everything to me and is the main reason why i selected the "trimax sxt5". You would too if you returned home from a 2, 400 mile road trip only to find the lock came off the your hitch pin, thus leaving the pin itself unsecured which could have worked its way out resulting in major damage. Sure thing, lows home store credited my purchase, which was more than i anticipated considering that i didn't even save the receipt - high marks to lows. . Back to the trimax though, this lock leave no doubt that the lock is securely attached to the pin and will stay that way until you get back home. I'm so pleased with the quality that i just purchased a second trimax to lock the connecting king pin on my 5th-wheel rv and i will keep the other for the f450 - super duty all the way, both deserve this pin and this locking hitch pin deserves five stars ! ! ! ! ! . . But(! ) i had to deduct one star for the flimsy rubber cap. Hey, no big deal, except that without it the inside mechanism could get wet and corrode, which it well may anyway. The point is that this rubber cap is only attached with a thin rubber band and comes off with the slightest excuse which makes a poor impression for an otherwise solid locking hitch pin. . Bill"

M. Irene, Prince Edward Island says

I've tried multiple brands of receiver locks, they were either too small for my tundra's hitch or were poor quality and rusted away or cheapo keys broke off. I originally bought the regular lock which is supposed to fit the tundra. It didn't. Bought this one and it fits great. Its high quality, has a heavy duty key and lock system and is holding up well. Had a lot of snow this winter, which means a lot of salt on the road. No problems with the finish on this lock yet. Best one i have found!

N. Lynette, Croydon

Installed this pin and the next day i was rear-ended at around 15mph. My trailer hitch took about 80% of the impact and man, it ripped the other guy's bumper and license plate. The pin was not damaged or bent (other than the lock cover that was ripped on impact).

W. Rhonda, Southampton says

Had the stainless trimax locking pin for 8 years before the lock froze/broke, had to cut it off my receiver. Would of lasted a bit longer if i lubed it more. Ordered same one as replacement since i like the design more when compared to others. High weight rating for real heavy towing.

P. Elanor, Manchester

It's a locking hitch pin. Appears to be a great value. Only time will tell. When the the lock cap falls off or tears, which it will eventualy, use a sandwich bag or plastic wrap and a rubberband to keep it clean

K. Whiteman, Barnet says

I have a 1500 silverado and this has about 1"-1 1/4" extra shank for the hitch receiver on my truck, i should have bought the sxt3, but i did not want to fight it if it was too tight, dont really care about the extra space, it will just make it easier for thieves to get a grinder in to cut it off. Has now been some months since purchase and it has been submerged in dirty river/creek water several times and covered in cow poo, and other such irritants and has yet to rust or corrode or otherwise give me trouble, as i said before only complaint is i bought the longer one out of worry, but it dosnt affect the operation of the pin, so far no thieves!

S. Pearson, West Virginia

I have a 2012 chev 3500 diesel dually and this class v extended receiver lock is the perfect length. I read reviews that it was to long, which it would be if you have an ordinary receiver but on my truck, i have a 2" receiver sleeve inside the larger receiver, i. E. Additional width, for heavy duty towing. This pin is rated for up to 18, 000 pounds. The stainless steel construction with the cylindrical key is impressive and you can tell right away it's high quality kit. I read reviews about difficulty opening this lock from other customers because of burrs and sharp edges left from machining but i had none of that. The locking pin i had originally installed on the hitch in 2012 was rusting and difficult to unlock half the time. I ended up cutting it off. No more shiny chrome stuff for me anymore. I am very pleased with this trimax stainless receiver pin for the short time i've had it.

C. Carmen, Wyoming says

Got this for my class 5 receiver on my ram hd seems to work well, has the round key like pop machines have, i find it easier to unlock in low light areas if needed. Have to wait and see how it holds up in weather.

R. Teresa, Nevada

Perfect for trucks like the chevy and gm silverado / sierra series which have the larger hitch sleeves. Most receiver locks do not fit the larger sleeves. This was the 3rd, and last, one i bought. Fits my chevy 2500hd perfectly.

V. Williams, Redbridge

I've always liked trimax products, and this one fits newer (i. E. Wider) 2. 5" gm hitches (mine is a 2013 gmc 3500hd). I read the comments about the lock being difficult to remove, and i experienced the same. I have, however, been able to fix that problem for the most part. I beveled the inside edges of the pin (on the longer piece) that is engaged by the locking mechanism (on the piece with the key). It's difficult to explain without pictures, but on mine, those edges were left pretty sharp from the machining process. Once i beveled them a bit (using a dremel with a drum sanding bit), the lock comes off easily after the key is turned. I had to do this process a few times because i did not want to remove too much material, but overall i did not have to remove much. I also slightly beveled the other sharp edges to prevent the lock from hanging on anything, and so far so good. Total time was about 10 minutes to fix the issue. Would have given it 5 stars had this been done at the factory.

Q. Colleen, Wisconsin says

This is a nicer lock than i expected. I missed this detail when i ordered it. But this lock is different than the other receiver lock i have used. Most receiver locks (i think) use spring loaded pins to "lock". When you unlock it you pull a sleeve out and then the springs push the pins away and the lock comes off. This is all fine and good till you get some rust, then the springs can't push the pins out and you end up banging on the lock with a hammer for an hour (trust me, i know from experience). . This pin has a t-shaped tip and the lock rotates around it to lock it in place. This means there are no springs to jam. The turning of the key directly unlocks the pin. This seems much more robust to me. . Notes on material. * the packaging states that the pin is stainless steel. It never claims the lock is all stainless. I'm guessing the inside of the lock has some carbon steel due to strength requirements. * some people have complained that the inside rusts. I put a couple sprays of silicone in the lock to help protect from rust. . Notes on fit. * this is longer than needed for my truck. I have a 2012 f150 with the max tow package. This is probably about 3/4" longer than what i need. I was worried about it being too short so i ordered this "extended" version. I suppose i should have just gone out and measured the hitch receiver. * anyway, i am not worried. I will probably add a couple o-rings (like others have said) to keep it from rattling too bad. . Pictures. * i took some pictures of the packaging and on my truck. I thought it would be nice to see the notes on the packaging so thats why i took the pics.

I had a locking pin from a previous truck that i owned and when i went to use it, uh, it is too short? so i then realized this truck has a class v hitch. So i had to find a pin that had a span of at least 3. 10". I also wanted a stainless one as the plated ones will rust and i have already had to cut one off in my travels as i could not get it to release the lock mechanism. . It came on time and packaging was simple and not adult proof, which was nice that the clam shell opened with some effort, but no scissors or knife required. It unlocks and locks very easy and with a 3. 50" span- it fit without a hitch (yes, pun intended! ). It has a good mat finish and if i had a criticism it would be that the rubber cap should be deeper and the band that prevents it from falling off when you go to use the key should have been wider so it doesn't come off too easily. Other than that, it looks good and is nicer than anything i could even possibly find locally.
