Locking hitch pin for 2012

Has anyone found a locking receiver hitch pin that works on a 2012?

I tried a Masterlock and another brand, both were too sort to lock. Both packages said they worked on HD GM trucks with 2 1/2" receivers, but they did not work on my 2012 GMC 3500HD.

Even the non-locking hitch pin that came with the truck does not work with the supplied clip. I had to use a clip pin with a smaller cross section to get it to work.

Not a big deal enough to make a special trip to the dealer.

I found one at my local CarQuest. Can't remember the brand name off the top of my head.

There is a really neat one out that you 'program' with your truck key so you don't have to carry around an extra key. Unfortunately, they don't make them for GM - at least not yet. Website has only Fords and Dodges.

They make Bolt locks for GM vehicles. I sent them a message to see if they have one for a HD receiver. I'll keep you posted.
