Coupler lock for Classic Super Lite TT

We have a 2014 Flagstaff 832 IKBS TT. Having trouble finding a lock that fits the coupler. Tried a fourth lock tonight with no luck. A couple of locks were very close to fitting, but would require slight grinding of the coupler metal.
For those with recent models, what brand and type of lock are you using?

I agree, and wil get back to you with the lock name/brand later tonight. The one I had to purchase is a solid lock, the type you put the key into the key hole and turn with the key as lock expands to open position.

Here is a good lock I hope the link works they are on pronto for 7.99 and called seachoice trailer hitch locks. I purchased mine at a local utility trailer dealer vehicle venture but would think cdn tire or home hardware should have them

Okay, thanks for this. Specs say the gap is 1-5/8, so this should work. Tried a Master Lock similar in design, but couldn't close the lock - was about 1/32th from closing. May have to order from the US, but I'll look further for a Canadian source.
Thanks again. Appreciate this.

Here is one more option rather then trying to order from US. This is at home hardware. Reese tow poser adjustable coupler lock

File the top of the latch around the hole on both sides and a regular padlock will work.

Okay thanks for this. The lock shown on the far right of the Home Hardware link page was less than a mm from closing. If all else fails, I will go the Old Coot way and get the file out.
