Sprinter Van Curt 5/8″ Hitch Lock – 2″ and 2 1/2″ Receiver #23528
I’ve never owned a hitch before and I don’t know where I would put this thing. Do you know?
The hitch lock is meant to fit in the fastener hole.
Ok, where do I find this fastener hole then?
You can find the fastener hole on the receiver tube. It will be located on the sides of the receiver tube. See the picture to the right of these two sentences or above them.
I have a coupler lock as well. Can I use these two things in conjunction with each other?
The answer is yes. In fact, the manufacturer says that this is a very good idea since it will provide you with extra protection from theft.
I’m guessing that this has a robust warranty? Do you know anything about what the warranty is like?
The product has a limited lifetime warranty that is serviced by the manufacturer, CURT. It also has a one-year parts warranty and a one-year finish warranty. Keep in mind that this is a manufacturer’s warranty which means that you will not be dealing with us if you have problems with the product.
Isn’t this thing going to rust if it is outside all day?
The product has a dust cap. The dust cap also does a second job which is that it keeps the rain out of your lock. If you use this cap then you should be able to minimize your rusting to a great degree.
How many keys do I get with this product? I need to be able to give my wife a set too.
The hitch lock comes with two keys that you can do with as you please.
This is a manual lock, then? No bluetooth or biometrics way to open it?
The lock is a manual lock. You can only open or close it using the keys.
I don’t own a Sprinter but this thing will still be usable for me, right?
The item will work with any vehicle that can take a hitch and has a receiver. Please note that you should always check your owner’s manual to make sure that your vehicle is able to tow things. Missing this critical information could cause frame damage to your vehicle.
I’ve not been able to find information if this will work with double-walled receiver tubes. Do you know?
The information we were able to find about the usability of this product with double-walled receiver tubes seems to say that it is not compatible with them.
How much of the pin length can I actually use?
The official measurement from CURT is 2.850″ of usable pin length.
I just want to make sure about this fact… What is the pin diameter of this hitch lock?
We were told by CURT that the pin diameter is 5/8″.
What size of receiver tube does this fit?
We were told it fits 2″ and 2 1/2″ receiver tube sizes.
I’ve seen a black version of this lock, I think. What is the color of this thing?
They say that this is a durable chrome plated finish. Officially, it would be chrome.
How much does this thing weigh when you ship it out your door?
Somewhere in the neighboorhood of 1 to 2 lbs. We also have to account for the weight of the shipping box otherwise it would be in the neighborhood of .70 lbs. without the shipping box.
