How does this thing fit? I mean I get it’s a hitch lock but where, exactly, does this thing go?

The hitch lock goes into the fastener hole. The fastener hole is located on the side of a receiver tube.

This thing fits more than just Sprinter vans, right?

Yes. It will fit many different vehicles including Promasters, Transits, trucks, and pretty much anything else that can use a hitch.

Will this hold a ball mount?

Yes. The product was designed to work with ball mounts or other hitch mounted accessories.

Couldn’t I just use the CURT hitch pin I already have?

CURT says that you could do that but the CURT hitch lock does more. It will not only hold your ball mount or your hitch-mounted accessory but it will also lock them into your trailer hitch. The lock will deter people from trying to take your cargo and towing it away.

Does this work with double-walled receiver tubes?

Unfortunately, no. The product will not work with those types of tubes.

What is the usable pin length?

We were told that it is 2.850″.

What is the pin diameter of this thing?

The pin diameter is 5/8″.

This is a.. Barbell design?

Correct. The product has a barbell design.

How far do I actually have to twist this thing to get it to turn? I know some of them have ridiculous amounts needed and I want to avoid that. They’re nearly impossible to take off because I don’t have the room to turn the thing.

You only have to use a 1/4 turn to get it to unlock.

Just to be clear, this is not Bluetooth activated or anything, it is operated with a key, right?

Yes. You manually use a key to open this product after it is locked.

What size of receiver tube does this fit?

We were told it fits a 2″ receiver tube size.

My last hitch with a lock rusted and I couldn’t open it. Do these have some kind of protection against that?

Yes. They include a dust cap that keeps out water and keeps your lock from corroding.

Could I use a hitch lock like this and a coupler lock?

Yes. In fact, the manufacturer says that doing so will help you have your vehicle-side and your trailer-side locked up very well.

What is the official finish of this thing?

They say that it is a semi-gloss black powder coat.

Do you know how much this thing weighs when it is shipped out?

It is supposed to weigh .70 lbs.

What is the warranty like?

It has a limited lifetime warranty provided by the manufacturer, CURT. It is a one-year finish warranty and a one-year parts warranty.

I tend to lose things… How many keys do I get with this thing?

You get two keys.
