Keep Your Cash, Credit Cards, Driver's License, And Keys Safe With The Hitchsafe Key Vault.

The Hitchsafe Key Vault is the PERFECT hide-a-key for your vehicle. Plus you can secure your credit cards and cash in the Hitchsafe and YOU are the only one who can access when you need whats in it.

The HitchSafe is secured inside the receiver hitch with two retaining bars on a standard truck, SUV, car, or van 2" trailer hitch receiver.

The Hitchsafe Key Vault forms a solid steel vault in combination with a Hitch Receiver provide the most secure location on your vehicle to store spare keys, credit cards, cash, and driver's license. To access your keys you just lift off the Rubber dust cover (that look like any normal Hitch Cover), enter in your personal 4 digit combination, that releases the drawer and allows access to your valuables.

The HitchSafe is always there when you need it, unlike magnetic key holders which are prone to falling off. Magnetic Hide-A-Keys provide no security, allowing any car thief easy access to your vehicle (if it hasn't already joined the millions laying on the side of the road) since everyone knows where it is hidden. Only you can access your keys in the HitchSafe contained within the solid steel structure of the Hitch Receiver.

NOTE: The 2005-2010 Toyota Tacoma and 2007-2010 Toyota Tundra OEM Hitch Receivers require longer pins to work with the Hitchsafe.

The hitchsafe is a great product. When I go to the beach I can just put my keys in the hitchsafe and not worry about losing them.

I bought this so I wouldn't get locked out of my truck anymore. It has solved that problem. It is easy to install and works great with no problems so far. If you tend to leave your keys in your truck by accident this is what you need.

Good Quality, to install or remove when needing to use hitch takes a minute. Great idea is if a friend or family member needs access to your vehicle and your out of the area with your keys in your pocket.

This is a perfect product for someone who parks their car and goes for a bike ride or run...I just pop it into my receiver hitch, lock up my keys and head out on my run/ride. And my keys are there when I come back.

I lock my keys in my car once a month. The hitch safe gives me the peace of mind that if it happens I don't need to call my husband, the police, or break the window to get in. I am in sales and I am in and out of my car 10 times a day. I like knowing it is there. It was very easy to install and you can not tell it is even on the car. Thanks for my peace of mind!

This key vault is a great idea. I have extra keys for everything in it and will never lock myself out of the house again!

I made a comment on 10/20/12 that my new HitchSafe had failed to work and I could not trust using it. I was sure of the combination numbers I entered but did not consider I may have seen one of the numbers wrong. A 7 can look like a 4 or a 5 to older eyes When I finally figured that was a possibility, I replaced the numbers and the HitchSafe worked perfectly. I installed it on my truck in less than two minutes and I am happy that it is the product I had hoped it would be. It is a great ide
