Trailer Coupler Lock

Hello all,

I have looked over the posts but have not been able to see anything on Trailer Coupler Locks. I just purchased a new trailer and will be keeping it in storage.
I was looking at this coupler lock https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I would appreciate any input on what you all prefer for coupler locks

Thank You

Hello!

I have that very same coupler lock. I bought it for my pop up trailer and it worked perfectly.

It does not fit my 17 SLX 267BHSW with the 2 5/16 coupler. The way the coupler is integrated into the A-frame makes it too beefy for the lock to fit onto.

I am considering this model of lock now as it is what the RV dealer uses to secure new trailers.

I have the Reese lock that you linked to, it works OK, but it looks like it would be really easy to pry it off with a crowbar.

Best,
Steve

Watch the span width, I have not found one that fits my 2016 JayFlight 28RLS, they are not wide enough, I've tried 3 that were for 2 5/16 or wide, none really fits, one does, but you move it the right way it comes off, so really just for show, however, my family's utility trailers now have locks on them.

I don't think most use a lock, even if you do and someone really wants to steal your TT all it takes is about 30 seconds with a cordless tool to remove it. I think someone is more likely to break in and steal something than take the TT. I would not waste my money on a lock.

I have a landscape trailer that someone tried stealing a few years ago. If it wasn't for the coupler lock, I'd be missing a trailer. They tried cutting the lock off with a hack saw. Must have become frustrated with trying to cut it and left. That cheap sub $10 lock saved my trailer from theft.

I kinda agree with the both of you. I have locks on my side gates on the sticks & bricks house. Last week someone tried to get in thru the gate in the middle of the night. They bent the locking mechanism, but moved on to the neighbors house and broke into his car in the driveway and stole some personal items...he didn't have locks on his side gates...but he does now!

I purchased the Reese lock in the first response but it did not fit the hitch on my '17 Whitehawk 24 MBH. The metal on the hitch part was too wide. We ended up buying
Trimax UMAX100 Premium Universal 'Solid Hardened Steel' Trailer Lock (fits all couplers) from Amazon (apparently I can't link yet or something). This lock fits very well and works for us.
