I just remove it from the truck and put it in the bed. It's out of sight so theft is not a problem. I got tired of hitting my leg on it all the time.

Just drilled the 5/8" regular hitch pin out to accept a regular Master padlock.

Master Lock produces a variety of receiver locks. We've been employing one for the past four yrs and have had no issues with it.

Being that we both live in ice and snow areas how has it held up with it? I only keep the lock in long enough to keep stuff from going away. I had to saw a cheaper lock off a few years ago after only a few months of being on the truck. Won't do that again... LOL

The lock gets a liberal dousing of WD-40 once or twice a year - has kept it functional through snow, ice and that notorious prairie gumbo. I tend to not leave the ball mount installed in the receiver unless I'll be using it and even then I'll remove it periodically to clean it and make sure everything still works. So far, so good.

We went to Wal-Mart and picked one that was the correct size for our receiver and could withstand the weight of our old tt. We used that locking pin every time we towed in addition to when not towing.
