    No one has an opinion on whether your trailer needs a lock...or if you have a lock what brand is it? Ken

    originally I was asking the question concerning locking trailers so that no one could just back up and hook on to your trailer and just drive off with your trailer. The picture I am getting now is everything that can be moved is locked up. If that is correct please tell me so and then please comment on what you lock your trailer hitch with in detail if possible. ken

    Go to your local trailer wholesaler and they will have a tongue lock. They will have a few styles.

    The one we use has the top shaped like an upside down "U" and a bottom piece that is almost like a small ball hitch that slides onto the "U" from under the tongue and then has a key lock to lock it on.

    Dont know if that description helps. If I go to my yard anytime soon I will get a pic.
