I have been using a Reese Farm & Ranch model# 7006633 for the coupler latch lock. I tried several others(Reese, Master, various styles etc) and would not fit, some by just a fraction of an inch(tried minimal grinding). Liked this one because it doesn't leave any room for cutting. The keyed lock mechanism screws into the other side lock body so it comes apart in 2 pieces. Only one I found that would lock the coupler latch other than the one posted by Quahog. If they pick it they have to unscrew the lock assembly not just pop open once compromised. If they pick it they can have it. Watch YouTube on lock picking/rake but most yahoo's are gonna cut or take it if not locked. Will probably add a ball style lock when TV not attached as well.

[QUOTE=TexasA&M;8244]What kind of locks are you guys using on the couplers of your travel trailers? I'm looking for two... one to lock the coupler to the truck when it's attached, and one to lock the coupler to keep someone from wandering off with my trailer when it's in storage. Something like this -

http://www.etrailer.com/Locks/Master%20Lock/378DAT.html

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?


In my neighbourhood a guy holds the Patent on this and several other locks. He retired at age 42.
