    1.25" threaded hitch pin

    Hey all,

    I recently picked up at 1 1/4" T2 and love it. The only thing that troubles me is the hitch bolt. There is nothing to prevent it from wiggling out over time. Yes, I could just buy a locking pin and slide it in, but I like that it is threaded and doesn't wobble.

    So my question is, is there some sort of pin for a 1.25" hitch, that threads in, but can also be locked preferably, or at the very least, it protrudes out the other end so you can put a clip on it or something.

    THanks
    Matt

    I've only had my Thule for 5 months, but it's been on my car the entire time, and while I periodically check the hitch bolt due to concerns like yours, it has remained tight so far.

    what keeps every other bolt on your car? this is just another bolt on a car. make sure its tight and you are good to go.

    A nylock bolt, available at any hardware store, will give you the peace of mind you're looking for.

    Very true, just one of those things that would it happen, well, I think everyone knows how I would feel.

    Get a longer bolt, same grade to keep the strength, then drill a hole and put a cotter pin in, or get a locking threaded pin from Thule or any hitch store, or just use a lockwasher and keep it tight, check periodically if you leave it on for a while.
