Coupler locks

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?

Thanks!!

- Steve

This is what I use on the Jayco and my boat trailer. Got it at the local Autozone. I guess it would stop an honest thief.http://www.autozone.com/autozone/acc...er=899043_0_0_

I do not think a regular padlock will fit.

Coupler lock

I don't lock my 5er as my truck is always in front of it. I do lock my son's enclosed motocross trailer and I use the master lock you were looking at and it works awsome. I don't see why it would'nt work on your tt.

I'm thinking that it will too, but I can't find the version for the 2-5/16" coupler anywhere local. I don't want to order it and find out it doesn't work, but I may end up having to do that....

I keep my truck in front of the Jayco but do lock the Hensley onto the tongue of the TT. I have a pin lock for when connected to the truck but have not used it yet. We seldom park the TT connected when traveling and go sightseeing. Therefore I do not think anyone could get to it to pull the pin. I also check whenever we start off just for safety.

I use a long shank Master lock on the TT.


And a locking pin on the receiver hitch.

For the trailer, I am using this one:

I do not lock the receiver on the truck. I remove it when I am not towing the trailer.

MasterLock sells a kit that has three keyed alike locks, one of the bar, one for the couple latch, and one for the coupler. I have it for a different trailer of mine. Got it at WalMart a couple of years ago for $35 or so.

http://www.etrailer.com/Locks/Master...k/3794DAT.html

Anyhow, I use the receiver lock from that set on whatever bar/ball I have on my truck at any given time. It'd be really nice to have all of the locks for all of my trailers and trailer accessories to be keyed alike, but that's probably not going to happen anytime soon.

Looks like I've got some shopping to do this weekend. I'll let you guys know what I end up going with.

I have not found a good one for my Jayco as most are not wide enough or tall enough and I leave it for months unattended. In looking for one that is built heavy duty and appears hard to cut into, I found one on the internet called Megahitch lock.
I called and they assured me their style 11 all steel version is successful on the Jayco.
Has anyone ever had any experience with this product or this company?
