Trimmer Trap

There is a company call trimmer trap that makes all kinds of racks and security items for lawn trailers. If you do a search for trimmer trap Im sure it will find their web site. It is probably www.trimmertrap.com

Well I'm A little differant than most as I pull my 14ft trailer with a chevy express van so I keep all the hand held stuff in the van, have a bench seat in back for my workers and everything. Nothing but mowers on my trailer. Works great for me.

We use TrimmerTrap racks, they make lockable racks for blowers and trimmers.

I also use trimmer trap for BP and trimmers. They have a place for a small lock which works great for short periods away from trailer. Equipment is stored inside at night.

I use a rack from Buyers products and it can be locked. Last year the truck I used had a camper shell on it and if it started to rain i put all the handheld equipment in it and then at night it is stored in a building
