Question Need 4 ea 5/8” hitch pins all keyed the same

I’m looking to buy 4 of 5/8” hitch pin, but all keyed the same. (so one key unlocks them all)

I looked on amazon and could not find them.

oh and i don’t want to spend a ton. :-(

any ideas?

here is an example of what I need. Just 4 of them but - all keyed the same. Thanks!

I can only find them in pairs but you can ask if you can get 4 keyed alike because some of these sellers are also manufactures.
Also confirm that you are getting two complete locks as the “what you get” list appears to be incorrect.

You could get hitch pin locks from Bolt Lock... as many as you want, all keyed to a motor vehicle key. that would normally be your tow vehicle, but they don't have a version for Acura (or Honda), so they would need to be matched to a key of a brand which they support, and you would need to take that key with you. They have coupler pin locks as well. There might be another brand with the same sort of system; maybe even one which works for your tow vehicle. They're more expensive than a normal lock, but I don't know what qualifies as "a ton".

I'm curious as to why 4 are needed for your Escape?

First off you might try ETrailer
Second I don’t care why you need 4 Alike
Finally I doubt very much you could finish the sentence and do the deed in a fair fight.

Maybe go into a Harbor Freight and see if their stock of Haul-Master locking pins have enough units with the same locks? If they aren’t packaged in sealed plastic you may be able to try a bunch with one key. Something tells me that there are not that many unique locks on a $10 item.

Or try calling them at 1-800-444-3353 and see if they will put four keyed alike together for you.

... and I'm guessing they're not for use with an Acura, but that's what was in the profile. For a Ford SuperDuty, on the other hand, the Bolt locks are readily available.

Heya - I would love to get 4 of the $10 Harbor Freight locks all keyed the same (except they rust badly, fast) but the last time I was in they only had about 2 in stock, as far as i could see. the rust also worries me. The BOLT ones look cool, but at 3 x the price .... Hmmmmmm time will tell.

all good ideas, tho. Thanks!!

I suspect the best bet would be to call the manufacturer and ask for 4 with the same key.
