Tongue Lock

I have a 2007 Flagstaff 831BHSS. I am looking for a tongue lock to put on when in storage. Any recommended brands?

Master Lock makes a nice one. It is harden steel just like there other pad locks with a polished chrome finish.

I second the Master Lock brand. Here's my favorite but there's many styles out there. Master Lock CL 378DAT Lock

While I like Master brand locks...they are pretty popular and easy to 'bump' for theives.
Bump keys are very easy to obtain, and yes...even I have a set to bump Master Locks.
I can usually open a Master Lock within a minute without damaging the lock.

If you don't know what lock bumping is...Google it. (you will be surprised)

Whoops...forgot to recommend!

I recommend locks that are not quite as mainstream or popular to defeat the 'bumping'.
Some new locks claim to be 'bump-proof', but I'm not sure of the claim.

Some type of coupler lock is what I was looking for. This would be used during storage that I rent. It makes me nervous not having any form of deterrant on the trailer. The Flagstaff tongue is made by Atwood and it has a rolled lip on the top of it that is not parallel to the bottom. Unusual design which the local stores did not carry anything that would fit. Suggestions?

The place where you are storing your camper, do they have security cameras and is it gated storage lot?
