I've got an OEM trailer hitch on a 2016 cargo van, which has a metal plate on the right side of the hitch for the trailer electrical connection. The plate leaves little room for a locking 5/8" pin to hold a bike rack or ball mount securely in place.

I've got a TowSmart 5/8 Receiver lock but it does not quite fit. ie I can't get the locking end onto the pin. https://www.homedepot.com/p/TowSmart-5-8-in-Receiver-Lock-1276/206798887

Has anyone found receiver lock that works with an OEM hitch?

Thanks for the quick responses Remrob and Tad Hawaii! Now the challenge of finding either of them locally.

If you aren't trailering in the next few days, you don't have to leave your home, visit AMAZON

I bought the Harbor Freight version mentioned in another hitch thread. It's ten bucks SKU 99548. Looks solid enough installed. 5/8" BTW
