Installation of Hitch Vault
The Hitch Vault is extremely easy to install. There is absolutely no assembly required. With just a few steps (as easy as 1, 2, and 3), you’re ready to move forward on your outdoor adventures without worrying about losing a thing.

Inside the hitch safe, pull on the lever located at the bottom, which will retract the hitch pins.
While still holding onto the lever, place the Hitch Vault inside the hitch receiver.
Once the Hitch Vault is inside the receiver, let go of the lever until it is fully secured to the receiver. It should snap perfectly into the receiver’s anchor holes.
