Bought two of these for my doolittle trailers. At first they didn't fit, but 10 minutes with the 4" grinder and a flap wheel they fit perfectly. A few minor alterations and they fit my dump trailer also. Good and solid, seem to be well made. Good price, I couldn't make them in my shop, time wise, for that price.
I got this for a different brand trailer but I measured the stake pockets before I ordered and they were the dimensions called out on the product detail. I had to grind a 1/8" off the back so it would slide in. The bolt they supply to tighten the bracket to the trailer won't come out with a spare tire on, I have to remove the spare then remove the bolt. Making it impossible to just remove the bracket and move it to a different stake pocket without removing the spare tire. The bottom pin didn't line up for me either but again I have a different brand trailer so I didn't expect it to. I drilled my own hole for a lock. Overall it really works and looks nice once I made the modifications.
It is a solid piece, nice powdercoating, and works well given the low price. I had to drill another set of holes lower on the face plate for the wheelstuds to go through to allow my 5 lug trailer tire to mount up and have the pin/lock lug/plate for the locking plate fit through the center of the wheel. I also had to notch that locking plate to clear the lug nuts. I am calling the plate that goes behind the pin (or padlock if you add one like I did) and prevents someone from just removing the lug nuts and taking your spare the locking plate. My trailer is a lighter duty 18 foot tandem flatbed (car hauler) with 15" 5 lug wheels. I am guessing larger wheels would fit fine without any adjustments necessary. The crosspin also does not work on my trailer because my stake pockets are apparently too deep. But the bolt does work well and holds it tight. And once the tire is mounted and locked in place, it is impossible to get the bolt out without getting medieval on the trailer or mount, so it works well.
I picked this one because it was significantly less expensive than the other competitor's product AND included the studs, nuts and a lock plate. I couldn't be happier. However, if you are using this on a wide trailer, which most with stake pockets are, it puts the wheel a little outboard of the legal width. I would recommend they modify the design.
