A quick way to improve the functionality of your truck is by putting the trailer hitch to work. By adding various types of equipment to your rig, you can expand the utility, improve the safety, and increase the security. Here are some accessories you can easily add to make your truck even more practical.


Keyed Up

The Receiver Lock by Bolt is designed to open using your truck’s ignition key. This means you’ll never waste time searching for another key, and you won’t have to waste space on your key ring. The Bolt Receiver Lock is weatherproof, fits 2- and 2½-inch receivers, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Lockdown

The DT-ALBM by Diversi-Tech is a self-locking hitch that doesn’t require separate locking pins. The hitch is made from solid billet aluminum, and the key used to lock the hitch into your receiver also locks the adjustable height with as much as a 10-inch drop. The Diversi-Tech DT-ALBM hitch has an anti-rattle design that uses spring-loaded stainless steel balls to keep it secure inside the receiver, and the trailer balls can be reversed and tucked under the truck when not in use.

Haulin’

The Carpod cargo carrier allows you to expand the hauling capacity of your truck with 450 pounds of holding power. The hitch-mounted cargo holder has 22-inch-tall sidewalls that provide 13¼ cubic feet of cargo space, which is enough room to hold 10 bundles of firewood. The sides of the Carpod fold down, making it just 5¼ inches tall for ease of storage, and you can order an optional locking top lid to secure all your extra cargo.
