Whats the best way to secure a 21" Toro Heavy duty to a trailer?

I started leaving my mowers on the trailer but I can't properly secure the 21. The front handle has just a few bolts keeping it in place and so does the handle bars. What I've been doing is tying knots in my chains around the tires and going through the handle bars.

It's close to my window, have security lights and a dog but I worry about it.

On my 36, at least I can put a chain around the axle but there is nothing solid on the 21.

Put the chain thru the side discharge or bagger chute holes if your mower has it. If it is just a mulching mower without these then maybe you could weld something onto it that you could run the chain thru.

Yeah I mulch with it but I could pull that thing out and put a chain through it. That's a great Idea, I can't believe I didn't think of it. That's what I'm going to do. Thanks.

Can you Weld??? or know someone that can???

you can get some thing fabricated like a U bolt but have it welded to the deck on either side then run the chain through that
