TT Tongue Lock

Just traded in my Dutchmen TT for a Jay Flight 27BHS. My old Tongue Lock doesn't fit because the 27BHS has a flange around the ball part of the coupler. Any suggestions on a tongue coupler lock that will fit the Jay Flights?

I bought this one on Amazon. The seller was helpful in confirming it would fit and it seems solid.

No locks for me, that's why I have insurance. Honestly I would love for it to be stolen every 3-5 years so I can get a new one.

Most of the coupler locks it only takes a large crowbar or heavy bench hammer to remove the lock. Also a chain with hook and a truck pull will do the same. Have seen video's on that subject. So why waist money while a simple lock will give some prevention. Being insured as said is a good prevention.

I am actually more concerned about my propane tanks walking which I do keep a bike cable lock on as a deterrent.

I use one of the following locks as a minor storage deterrent, and to keep the coupler latched while in-tow:



Also keeps 'pranksters' from playing with the coupler latch during brief stops (shopping, etc.) along the way......., known to happen.
