I keep mine locked while traveling because I don't want to be in a resturant or something and have some body flip the latch up. 5th wheel owners need to keep an eye on the release lever incase of a disconnect by a passerby.

I always keep a small Master padlock on mine when traveling, but the pin that holds the foot on the tongue jack works fine too when I'm not concerned about security.

A pin came with ours (I can't imagine a dealer being so penny pinching they wouldn't supply a pin with the purchase - of course IMHO).

We use a locking pin for both our hitch and tongue just to keep honest people honest, and slow down an aspiring thief. LOL, of course the pro would have the tt gone in a blink. We use them while towing as well as when unhitched even in our side yard while stored

Bought my TT used, but that's a whole different thread! I didn't get a hitch pin at all...went to Lowes and bought a Reese locking kit for $35 that included a keyed hitch lock, a reciever bar keyed lock, and a coupler ball lock. Have to modify the coupler a little to accept the ball lock, but after having stuff stolen from my yard three weeks ago, I'm not taking any chances.

I've ordered both a trailer hitch receiver & coupler lock from etrailer. I'll post another message after they arrive & I validate they work properly.

Just a head's up (not a big deal). We bought a 'keyed alike' lock for our hitch and tongue from dealer... sheeesh, he said the one lock would fit our tongue We went out to the tt and found that the tongue lock wasn't long enough! Had to take the set back. Went back to our original tongue/hitch locks. We have a separate lock for the hitch. Oh well

delayed entry -

etrailer delivered as promised. Both locks are keyed alike, fit perfectly and operate exactly as described.

Now we have confidence in our coupler latch remaining locked and the TT remaining securely attached to the TV even if unattended. It's worth the investment.
