    Listen! Locking Hitch Pin With Threads?

    I just bought a hitch rack, and I thought it would be a good idea if I had a locking pin. But I like the idea of the threaded pin that came with my rack, because it keeps it from wobbling so much. I've looked at some stores and poked around online, but so far I can't find a locking pin that has threads. Any ideas?

    What brand is your rack? Usually, you need to get the lock from the same manufacturer.

    Thule has their own, etc.

    When I used to have a Thule (935XT), I drilled out the thread in order to use a standard hitch lock. I used the threaded lock for a while, but it was a pain to use a wrench to remove and attach the hitch.

    They sell locking pins, but not with threads.

    I have a Thule T2 and use a threaded locking pin. Takes me about 2 minutes to unlock and unscrew the pin to remove the rack when not in use. The lock pin itself is called STL2 - Snug-Tite Lock.
