PinUltimate Quick-Release Hitch Pin: The Revolutionary New Solution

If you are a trailer owner, you are probably familiar with the hassle of using hitch pins. The steel rods are not only prone to rusting, but they also require clumsy “R-clips” that nobody likes. This often results in a knuckle-scraping experience that nobody wants to repeat.

However, there is now a solution to this problem: the PinUltimate Quick-Release Hitch Pin. It is an all-titanium pin that makes securing and removing your hitch faster and more comfortable than ever before.

How does it work?

The PinUltimate pin uses a clever ConnecTrick push-button, quick-release, in-line design that is so much better than the traditional hitch pins. You simply depress the ergonomically positioned thumb button on PinUltimate’s handle. This releases positive locking balls that protrude from the shaft, releasing the cap on the opposite end. With the cap removed, the pin is free to slide in or out. To re-attach the cap, just depress the thumb button and push the cap back in place.

All this happens in mere seconds and is done easily in tight quarters, far easier than R-clips that work perpendicular to the pin shaft, requiring more space to operate.

What is it made of?

The PinUltimate pin itself is made of premium, heat-treated 6AL4V (Ti-64) titanium. This means you can be confident that it will work flawlessly even if exposed to saltwater or road salt. It is backed by a lifetime warranty. The handle is ergonomically designed and fully CNC-machined from aircraft-grade billet aluminum and then treated with a special UV resistant “power red” Cerakote® finish formulated specifically for PinUltimate to further protect it from the elements.

Additional Features

For those who want to lock their hitch, PinUltimate Hitch Pin is fitted with a premium cylinder lock that features a bidirectional key which makes locking/unlocking easy. Every PinUltimate Quick Release Hitch Pin is 100% Made in the USA using components that are 100% Made in the USA. PinUltimate is backed by a lifetime warranty and comes with a 90-day performance guarantee.


With PinUltimate, there are no clips, no cross-stream maneuvers, no scraped knuckles, and no wasted time. It’s so easy, you can do it in the dark! PinUltimate is available in a standard 5/8″ Pin and fits Class III, IV, and V hitches.
