I've used the Deadbolt receiver & coupler locks keyed alike and will do so again for my new Jayco.

Not sure if you are still looking for a lock, but I found one for use while in tow, it should work on the Jayco coupler. It is called "Coupler Connect" and they have a two part unit the first helps you hook up by yourself (without the little lady misdirecting you or the little man for those times), then you switch it out and it has a decent lid that adjusts and drops down on the coupler top. There is a lock for it as well but it is optional. It seems well made and reasonably priced.

I just use a regular paddlock on our tongue. It fits tight and dosn't leave room for bolt cutters.

Our local TSC uses the Master style to secure all of their towable items in front of the store from the Paw Paw hillbillies. They don't sell them in the store but do carry the yellow Reese type that fits in the ball socket and has a u-shaped piece that goes over the coupler. I have the Reese type and had to grind a very slight amount off the sides of my coupler to get it to slide all the way where it should be. I'd like to get the Master one soon.

I don't have the trailer close right now to try different locks, and will be taking it straight to storage once I pick it up, so I need to have something ready to use before then (next weekend).

Anyhow, will a regular padlock fit through the hole on the coupler latch? Will the above lock fit on the odd shaped Jayco coupler? How are you guys locking up your trailers?

Thanks!!

Steve,
I use a bicycle lock for my coupler. Works great!

I installed a Reese coupler lock on mine....and promptly lost the keys.....gotta take an angle grinder to it and cut it off.....also this lock can be picked in less than 30 secs or any lock unless it is double sided or special encoded key.

Why grind it if you can pick it in 30 seconds? :hihi:
