Many people have a hitch receiver on their vehicle, but how many actually use them on a regular basis? Sometimes you see a fourth brake light shoved into one, or they sport a fake propeller or Autobot badge to demonstrate the vehicle owner’s whimsical personality. With the HitchSafe you can put the hitch receiver to better use as a place to securely store valuables or spare keys.
From FJM, the same company that brought us the Combi-Bolt, the HitchSafe fits inside your 2″ hitch receiver and is secured by the pin holes with no tools. A rubber dust cover hides and protects the HitchSafe and under the cover are 4 dials on which you enter one of 10,000 possible combinations to release the safe.
A couple of caveats I discovered while browsing the negative comments on Amazon: Make sure the holes in your receiver aren’t too far back to accommodate the HitchSafe. Also, the HitchSafe doesn’t appear to be watertight, which could be a serious problem if you’re prone to drive through puddles.
A quick scan of Google Products shows most retailers selling the HitchSafe for about $70.
