I use a lock each and every time. Not for security though. The lock came from my TT days. I used to use it to lock the coupler. Again not for security, it was just a lock I had kicking around with a long shank.

I hadn't even thought of some moron messing with it, now I will and I am glad I do lock it though.

I like the idea of using a locking pin at the bed rails. Where might I find one that would fit well?

I just found a pin and lock with the correct diameter. It worked great

Just cross drilled the end of the pin and use a regular Master Lock on it. Surprised the pin wasn't hardened.
