Locks

What type of hitch locks are you using to prevent theft of your trailer?

I go with a padlock through the coupler lever and a Blockhead Deadbolt on the ball cup.

I've got this same unit but had to do a little grinding on it with a dremel to make it fit just right. Works great now.

I have a Rottweiler mix that sleeps underneath my trailer. I don't even lock it. Good dog. He's not happy. I had to move HIS trailer.

My coupler is hard to find a lock that works properly. I put an old ball in the coupler and lock it down with this type of lock. If they want to steal my trailer, they are going to have to work for it!
