Trailer Coupler Locking Latch Hitch Pin

Are the trailer couplers supplied by Jayco delivered with any type of hitch pin to secure the locking latch and help prevent an accidental trailer disconnect?

The locking latch appears to accept a 1/4 in X 3 in pin.

I asked why one was missing when I took delivery and the technician advised it must be obtained by the owner. I have yet to find one.

As always, thanks in advance for all your assistance!

Lock pin

I bought one at Canadian Tire that takes a key to undo it. And, yes, I got two extra keys cut!!:hihi:

I have a hitch lock with keys now but a regular pin was provided with my trailer. I used it to come home when I bought the trailer and keep it for a spare.

I just use a small Wallyworld lock. Nothing will stop someone but they might make a little noise fighting with the lock.

I may be missing something, but I think the original post was asking about a hitch pin to be used while on the road towing.

Some of these locks also do the job of the pin. The lock just takes its place and noone can remove the pin while you are parked. It also acts as a hitch lock when you are disconnected.
