Let’s Go Aero’s leading Silent Hitch Pin technology moves Safe and Silent Towing® to the next level with a new 90° lock design and a self-lubricating, anti-corrosive materials including hot dip zinc, chrome, and stainless steel. These improved features allow for more user access in an ever tighter environment surrounding the hitch, and increased durability and longevity in all-weather conditions.

This Silent Hitch Pin with lock for 2 inch hitches, model number SHP2040, now includes a state-of-the-art 90° lock design that snaps onto the pin shaft effortlessly and without use of the key, leaving the key face fully accessible. This right angle design allows the user to easily install it on many new vehicle hitches that have tighter hitch spacing, such as the new Mercedes Benz Sprinter Class C RV.

Additionally, it is firmly protected with a heavy-duty rubber outer jacket for better grip, and integrated weather seals to block moisture. The Silent Hitch Pin components are crafted with a corrosion-resistant chrome-coated steel, hot dip zinc, and stainless steel. For added performance, the Silent Hitch Pin’s motion removing spring nut has been upgraded with an anti-corrosion hot dip zinc surface that naturally lubricates the chrome pin’s threads for simple installation and lifelong performance. The 5/8 inch pin and hex head holes are enforced with a sleeve for equalizing the shoulder across both pin holes. This increases the sheer strength from 28,000 to 34,000 pounds. These high quality features increase the Silent Hitch Pin’s already solid performance and satisfaction among its users.

First introduced in 1999, the Silent Hitch Pin technology effectively removes shock loads and distracting noise by taking the movement out of the connection between the hitch receiver and the hitch accessory. It fits 2 inch hitches for Class II, III, and IV tow ratings, and requires hollow shank tube tow equipment including ball mounts for trailer towing, bike racks, cargo carriers, and other RV equipment tow accessories. It is easily installed and is transferable.
