This is the exact one I have! Tranferred from my boat to the TT!

I have the same coupler, and my standard shank Master padlock fits just fine. I also have a long shank Master that doesn't fit there at all.

I think it's this one: Master Lock 140D Solid Brass Keyed Different Padlock with 1-9/16-Inch Wide Body, 1/4-Inch Shackle - - Amazon.com

Full disclosure: I have about a dozen different locks I've collected over the years, so I just dug around in my box until I found a standard shank and slapped it in there.

I tried that type and it wouldn't work. The curve of the pin wouldn't allow it to pass through the hole. That's why I used the 'straight' pinned lock.

Weird.

The straight part of the lock is long enough, you shouldn't need to pass the entire shank (the curved part) through the hole on the coupler. Just push the open part of the shank through the hole and flip the lock body over the coupler handle and snap it in.

On the TT: apparently the locks that cover the receiver are easy to break-off (someone posted a video of that), and it seems there aren't many systems that are really theft-proof ~ if someone in your storage yard has the will and isn't being watched, apparently their success rate is high!

On the TV: once the TT is dropped, the hitch and WD components can be stolen from either off the TV or from under the TT (if that is where you store it). DH removes them and places all into the TV bed (locking lid) ... and so much better for my shins (apparently I never watch where I'm walking ).

Other: we finally changed the locks to all of our (751) storage compartments to Combi-cam combination locks; I feel so much better about that now.

Oh..I see what you mean. I guess the one I bought wasn't long enough.

Yeah, that would be a problem. I use it more for security under way to ensure the coupler doesn't somehow come unlatched. It's true; a lock up there is easy to defeat for even marginally motivated thieves, especially if they have time and privacy, like in an unmonitored storage facility.

Very true! Thank goodness our storage lot has 24 hour monitoring. Like you said, locks are just a minor setback for an experienced thief.

Now this is something new to me:
"Other: we finally changed the locks to all of our (751) storage compartments to Combi-cam combination locks; I feel so much better about that now."

Isn't that just special.
Our TT came with different keys for each door (2 each door) compartment keys and a shower door key. What a PIA.
The key code main door locks are expensive, are the main door locks that common as well?
