Can you provide a picture of the coupler? I haven't seen one with a recessed hole. That does sound like it would make locking it a pain.

How about a trigger lock? Not terribly secure but the pin locks are probably just as quick to cut through with bolt cutters as this would be.

We use one of those yellow "gorilla" locks that fits into the ball socket, and has a u-shaped bar that locks over the top of the coupler. About $30 or so. I think Reese sells it too.

We use one of those as well in addition to the pin lock when away from the trailer. I still like to use the pin lock while the trailer is hooked up though.

Worst case scenario some little prankster comes and lifts up your trailer latch while you are in transit but away from your rig. You don't notice and........

I found a trailer coupleer lock at my local Walmart for $5.97. It fits great on my 2016 Jay Flight 28BHBE.
