What can you do to secure two open trailers backed up gate to gate to keep someone from hooking up and driving off?<p>A Friend of mine shows beautiful antique engines. He has them mounted on very nice custom made trailers and sometimes leaves them at the show over night. When he dose this he pulls the pin and removes the Tongue and hitch! That's right, his hitch is mounted using a square tube inside a tube with a pin to hold it Just like the receiver on the truck. He just takes the hitch with him.<p>This is not practical for lawn equipment but he also jacks the trailers off there wheels to stabilize the engine and takes the jack with him.<p>BTW The trailer I designed needs air to lift it to the tow position and the air compressor is mounted in the truck. At night it would be dragging on the ground. See http<p>
