I got the full kit from Pakit earlier this year, including a lock for the receiver. It is a 3/8 diameter lock from MasterLoc. The lock has failed after being used for about 5000 miles. I kept it lubed, and covered but the cylinder is thrashed. I am sure if I contact Pakit they would give me a new one, or I could pay them. But with it failing so quick I would rather just purchase another brand.

I can not find a 3/8 diameter pin lock from anyone else. They are all larger and I would rather not weaken in by drilling the hole larger. Have any of you purchased one elsewhere and can point me in their direction?

To be clear, I am a very happy Pakit customer. This is just one of those things that happen sometimes.

Take a look at the local RV stores, also search Amazon for 3/8" hitch pin locks. I found one listed there.

Have you given any thought to a padlock with a long shank? Don't know if it will have the strength you are looking for or not.
