If you are paying for storage, they should have cameras monitoring the site.

We do pay, but they don't have cameras on the trailer lot, just indoor storage areas. I told the owner if I can buy a $26 lock he should be able to buy a couple of extra cameras to watch the lot...we'll see.

Is the clasp and lock a set? How secure is the bottom of the clasp? Any change it could easily be spread open and removed from the bottom?

Terrier it is just the bracket that goes around the L-brackets the bracket box sets on. I added the lock, one of four that opens with the same key. The lock bracket is pretty beefy, could the bracket be opened from the bottom, maybe but it would have be a pretty good pry bar....I believe they would try and break the lock first because of available space to use force on a tool.

I am just trying to make them skip mine and go for something easier!

Now to find a ball coupler lock so they can't bypass the latch lock, x-chocks with locks, and the club wheel lock. Anyone have a 2 5/8 ball lock that works?

I did not come up with the lead but rbq did, thanks go to him!

I got it. Where did you get the locks? Sorry about all the questions but this is something I am wanting to get for my trailer for the same reason you stated.

When we had a tongue trailer, I took an old 2-5/16" ball, cut the shank off and drilled & filed the tongue latch out large enough to insert a Master lock, inserted the modified ball and latched and locked it.. Never lost a trailer!

Terier I got it from http://www.b-drvbatterylock.com/

Dunnnc my latch has the same master lock as the battery locking bracket now. I will have to find a ball and see what I can do. Reciprocating saw? Hack saw? Drill hole in shaft and put a lock in the shaft?
