Trailer Hitches

What Are The Benefits Of A HitchSafe?

A HitchSafe is a heavy-duty, solid steel vault that slides into the trailer hitch at the rear of the vehicle. This small lockbox provides drivers and passengers with a secure location on the exterior of the vehicle to store small items.

Benefits Of A HitchSafe

HitchSafe’s are designed to fit any standard two-inch hitch receiver, which means it will work for any truck, van, or SUV. If you still are not sure whether a HitchSafe is right for your vehicle, here are 3 major benefits that might change your mind.

Store Small Items

There is nothing more annoying than accidentally locking your keys inside the car. Not only is there no one else to blame but yourself, but now you also have to wait for the tow truck or locksmith to come.

What if I told you there was a way to safely carry a spare key with you wherever you go? With a HitchSafe, drivers can store spare keys, cash, and whatever else you might need in case of emergency.

A HitchSafe also comes in handy when going on an adventure with friends or family. Rather than lugging your keys and wallets on a hike or to the beach, simply lock them away in your trailer hitch where you know they will not be lost or misplaced.

Simply remove the cover and enter your personal four-digital number dial combination to access your belongings. The four-digit dial means there are 10,000 possible combinations, which means it would take someone over a dozen hours to successfully try all the different variations to break-in. You can rest assured that you and only you will be able to enter your HitchSafe.


The best part about HitchSafe is that they are virtually undetectable – if you don’t know what you are looking for, you would never be able to spot it. Every safe comes with a rubber dust cover that is designed to look like any other normal hitch cover.

Not only does this dust cover conceal the safe from prying eyes, it also serves to protect the HitchSafe itself. The undercarriage of a vehicle takes a beating from rocks, branches, and other road debris during travel. If the lockbox was left exposed, this road debris might affect the integrity of the safe’s face and number dial. This could result in the driver not being able to successfully open the safe if it has been dented or damaged.

Easy To Install & Uninstall

If you are interested in installing a HitchSafe, but are worried that it will affect your towing capabilities, then we have good news for you.

Another one of the many benefits of a HitchSafe is that it is extremely easy to install and uninstall in a matter of seconds, with no tools required. Simply open the safe using your personal dial combination and then remove the two bolts located on the side of the hitch. After that, the HitchSafe should slide right out and your trailer hitch will be ready for whatever is next.
