Secure your keys in HitchSafe receiver safe

Secure  valuables with HitchSafe

By Bob Difley

Do you ever fear that you may lose your keys during a hike? According to the best thieves, there is no perfect place to hide your keys in your campsite or on your RV that they can’t find. But HitchSafe may solve that problem.

The HitchSafe HS7000T Key Vault slides into your hitch receiver and locks. When open it is large enough for not only keys, but also an emergency credit card, cash or driver’s license. Then hide its existence with an ordinary-looking dust cover that conceals and protects it.


Converts receiver into concealed vault
The durable, all-metal HitchSafe converts your receiver into a vault. The hitch pins are secured inside receiver via 2 sliding bars that can only be accessed with a 4-dial combination drawer that offers 10,000 different combinations. The HitchSafe can secure keys, license, cash and credit cards.

Great for outdoor activities where keys are a hassle or can be lost
HitchSafe can store spare keys for quick and secure access. It can also be utilized for sharing access with friends/family or special situations such as outdoor sports where carrying keys can be problematic and credit cards/cash left inside vehicle would otherwise run the risk of being stolen.

Concealed key storage that will not fall off like magnetic key holders
If your magnetic key holder has not joined millions of them that have fallen off vehicles and now lie on the roadside, the magnetic holders are still an open invitation for someone to steal your car or RV because all thieves know where they are hidden. HitchSafe is contained within the solid steel structure of the hitch.

  1. I installed this in my receiver 2 years ago and it gives me a sense of calm. One late evening we decided to get fast food before continuing to the CG. The ignition key was kept separate from the other four keys and we think they might had been place on our food tray which we emptied in the trash upon leaving. Got to the campsite and no keys to access the storage areas; this little safe save our butts. In addition to spare keys there’s room for cash, credit card, etc.

  2. Don’t understand how this would help me since the hitch for my trailer is always in place in the receiver while I am towing my trailer. Thus, no room for this contraption. Guess I could weld on a separate receiver somewhere on my trailer, as was suggested by others.

  3. The HitchSafe is really great. But beware. One size does not fit all. Be sure you know the size of your hitch before you buy. A Class C that says don’t tow more than 2,000 pounds probably has a small hitch to help make sure you don’t. Unfortunately a safe that would fit into that small hitch would not be big enough to hold your key. (The one I bought for my Class C had to go on my SUV instead.)

  4. I bought this 2-years ago and glad I did! Only had to use it once but that allowed me to continue my day without delay. Never thought of money or credit card? Doing that today, better than under the seat!

  5. We have one of these and, let me tell you, it has saved our butt a number of times! We keep $10 and a spare key in it. I wholeheartedly recommend it!

  6. This could also be installed anywhere that one welds a 2″ receiver onto their vehicle. I know of one example where the Hitch safe’s required 2″ receiver is welded onto a rear bumper facing out to the side.
