Recently got some hitch locks at an online auctions. Two BlockHead locks at 1 auction and 2 Reese's and 5 Master Lock hitches at a different auction. The 2 BlockHeads cost $11 total. The 2 Reese's and 5 Master Locks totaled $9.43. The auction listed the Masters as not having keys. I think that kept some from bidding. Was okay with me. When I got the Masters, the auctioneer's son had found all the keys for them. Even better. I also have a Master 34 hitch lock I got several years ago at a live auction. When all the mentioned locks came on the market I had plenty of calls from local campgrounds to open many of these locks due to lost keys by owners. Yes, I know of Boz Bill's, LPL's, et al videos of picking these locks. Very easy, though the Master 34 will need a 5/32 Allen wrench to complete the opening. Even though these locks are relatively easy to defeat, not all would-be thieves are bright. I think that some protection is better than none.

Re: Hitch Locks

Fulton FLT1 jma key blanks - not yet back in stock in UK - ILCO 1645

alternative blank is a Ronis RO-7I if up against it only - but must be thinned down OR Altered

anyone sat on the key codes for these - reese ccp fulton bulldog brand - let us know :ugeek:

space and depths on one of the reese keys you have in photos would be nice for the files :razz:

Can the lock barrel - plug be removed ON Reese hitch at all after all keys are lost to rekey

or is it not viable at this point - given no keys a paperweight - interesting to find out !

thanks buddy for post

Reese and Master use a pinned on. BlockHead is peened on/into body.

Re: Hitch Locks

Really surprised how many people use this system still given the bad rep -

I see its a single pin holding wafer lock in position - so not impossible to remove plug

its real easy to shim from below & pick - remember bill did a vid awhile back also

but its the key really that interests me - as there still sold worldwide !

So the space and depth information on this reese hitch key - would be good - can cut to code from photo then !

even photo of both keys with ruler between - :smile: great help fyi

the blockheads use a thule key - and common on roof racks bars boxs key codes usually found stamped on lock face

thanks

Re: Hitch Locks

A few hitch locks used in Europe - ball hitch & detachable towbar with lock on spring loaded mech
as it is standard to sell the new locking cylinder with the locking knob - costing £40.00 and upwards
ive learnt lock can be replaced with a slight alteration on a common thule lock costing a few pounds or $4.00 dollars
as many witter locks left on vehicles just seize up over the years and fail to work require changing - top tip !
note the lock as changed code and appearance from the original locks fitted - given a new life again :D
witter codes TR01 to TR10 - as standard - now 200 variants on key
