I bought this last summer and got everything installed and locked in place. It was all good. UntIl I got stuck when the road collapsed under the front tires. I tried to take the jack off the truck and the darn lock wouldn’t turn. I Tried and tried. I got out the channel locks and just ended up braking the locking mechanism. I finally removed the jack mount UBolts to get the jack off the truck. Then I had to cut the cool red rubber handle retainer to use the jack. When I got back to the house I had to cut the lock off the jack using a cut off wheel. I discovered that the locks bolt had frozen itself to the jack mount bolt. It had to use the channel locks again and remove the stud from the mount with the locks nut still attached and replace the stud with a new one. Moral of the story might be to put some anti seize on the mount bolt before installing the lock.

5.0Pretty Sure Someone Already Tried It
This little baby is a must have if you are mounting your farm-style jack outside your vehicle. Very heavy in the hand, it is definitely got some quality construction going on. Feels like it weights 2-3 times the standard non-locking knob that came with my HM-900 mount. I am also pretty sure someone has already tried it, as I left my vehicle being able to read the Hi-Lift logo through the windshield, came back and it was turned 180 degrees. Keep unsavory people from taking your hard earned tools, spend the $30 on it. I believe it mounts on a standard 3/8" UNC bolt, opening up a wide variety of locking options.

5.0Security, cosmetic, and easy access
I purchased two of these for my HiLift bed mount. This product solves the security dilemma in a cosmetic way as well as ease of removing and reinstalling the hilift. Off the road the last thing you need to look for is a wrench. Unlock the device with the key and simply twist with your hands. I live this!

5.0Hi Lift lock - not for bull bar
I bought this for the bull bar mount and it is the wrong thread size. Apparently this is meant to fit the hood mount. I should have checked the size first. The quality is great and I will keep it for another use.
5.0Keeping my jack, mine.
Works Perfectly. This is the cleanest, least intrusive means to secure my jack.
