Locking hitch pins. Matched pair?

I want one of those hitch raise / drop adapters to raise up my hitch haul basket so I don't bash it on trails so badly. I would prefer it and its contents not be stolen....

This would require I lock it up, but it will take 2, one for each side of the adapter.

Are locking hitch pins available keyed alike?

I have one of these that keys to your vehicle key. Works well.

Ive seen masterlock sell a 2 pack of locking hitch pins, keyed alike.

But personally I prefer a higher qualilty brand like Paclock. I like their philosophy of "every lock, one key" which allows you the user to change cores to match your existing locks. Paclock is also pretty highly reviewed by lockpicking experts like McNally and LockPickingLawyer.

They're pricey at nearly $90 each. But I might have over $10k in bikes on the rack at any one time so a few hundred in pins, cables, and locks is worth it.

Bolt locks has them and if you have an Econoline Ford they key will work with them. It's sold as a blank and once you put your ignition key in and twist it... it now works with your ignition key. Neat as one key can fit all their locks.

So their web site only shows models back to 96, I emailed their support team and they gave me the model that will work with my 93, ordered a pair of them and sure enough key works without a hitch, no pun intended...

So problem solved. Hitch pin locks, 2 one for the hitch raise and one for the hitch haul basket to keep them from walking off, and no extra keys cluttering up the keyring. Awesome idea!
