Trailer back up

Ever wonder how to back your Mastercraft trailer without the reverse lockout pin falling out? Glue a magnet to it. Works perfect. Name:  image.jpg

Does your trailer not have an automatic reversing solenoid?

Yes but when moving it with a tractor you may be forced to use the lock out pin.

Good idea. I'll have to try that. I've been using a small Irwin quick grip clamp on mine.

Or, swap out the cap over the master cylinder for the optional reverse lock-out version. $10.00 - works great.

Skyskiguy, where can you find the reverse lockout cap?

First off that is a great idea. For those that don't have the lock out pin (like me) instead of buying the key, a magnet and epoxy try this on for size.

I think I got it from amazon a couple of years ago and it works like a charm. It lays over the top and is very stable. Its called a "dealer lockout pin"

I have one of these also. They work great but are hard to find. I got mine from the dealer.
