I don't use one

I've always pulled my hitch and bars and put them in the bed of my truck while not using them. It's locked away and out of sight. Figuring theft is usually a crime of opportunity I like to lessen the opportunity. Out of sight out of mind. But yes, if someone wants something bad enough.........

Locks

Get a good insurance policy. Thieves can literally tie the tongue to a hitch and haul your trailer away.

Just cut the stud off a hitch ball and lock it in the trailer latch. Just need a deterrent from thieves.

Years ago my bass club was at a tournament and we had five boats stolen in one night. Mine was left alone. My defense was having the ugliest and slowest boat in the parking lot.

Hitch pin lock

Definitely lock your hitch pin. Where I live people of no good remove the hitch pin on snowmobile trailers, utility trailers, travel trailers and more. The hitch is still in the receiver. Then when you drive away the hitch and tongue of the trailer drops to the ground. I had this happened to me last year. What a mess.

I use a 3/8 stainless cable with a big lock run thru the wheel rim and over the axles and back thru the second wheel rim. Cat cut a cable with bolt cutters and a hack saw won't cut it either. If someone is going to steal it, their going to work for it! I also use a lock on the trailer toung.

I think the best bet is to put one side on blocks and remove wheel(s), remove jack battery and put stabilizers down.

Has anyone used a Proven lock 2516? Says it doesn’t fit all couplers. Wondering if it will fit the 2021 267 bhs?

Proven Lock

I use the proven lock 2516-J model from proven industries. I bit expensive but worth every penny. It even locks your chain hooks. I have a Jayco 28BHBE. The 2516-J is for the Jayco travel trailers only. It won’t fit any other trailer according to the proven industries rep. I did upgrade to the stainless steel puck. I will try to upload a pic.

Hitch ball and a padlock will deter 99%, but if someone REALLY WANTS IT, they will take it.

Will megahitch fit 2021 coupler?

We were looking at the megahitch lock for our 2021 jayflight 267 bhs, but wondering if it will fit? It looks like the coupler is different in 2021? Anyone have a megahitch lock for their 2021 TT?
