I agree that for most places I go, people are honest and very trustworthy. I have been in a few places with my boat trailer where the neighborhood was "rough", and that's where I did apply the lock. I have not seen any CG anywhere I've been, that would cause me to be concerned, and that's why my initial thought was to not bother with any lock. I do like to have something on hand though, in case I find myself in one of those rough areas, and need some level assurance.

I just bought the same lock two days ago and it worked fine with my trailer (17z). Like others I don't think it will do much if someone want to take the trailer. I have the trailer in storage and I hope that it will deter the thief.

I know for sure that my Wall Mart lock works because I have used it on my utility trailer for five years and no body has taken it yet.
2011 Eagle 330RLTS with just about every option.
Dodge SRW 1 ton Cummins powered.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.

David, I use that lock on mine. I also have another lock going thru the holes on the actual coupler. If they want to steal it that bad there going to get it, but it may slow them down a bit. Like others have said, locks keep the honest people honest.
