    I just put a big ole lock on the latch thing on the trailer but I guess it could be cut if somebody really wanted it. Mine stays back behind the gate and my neighborhood is pretty safe. If I have to park anywhere with it I keep an eye on it.

    I didn't buy it for theft. I think it is great that it prevents the coupler from detaching even if the nut on the trailer ball falls off. You never know what can happen. It's not like I never heard of a trailer coming unhooked.. I think this is it's main purpose. The lock is just a plus if you want it.

    I won't even use the lock on it (just one more key I don't need). I will use a pin instead.

    Ah I didn't think of it that way. I have heard some nasty horror stories of boats and trailers getting totalled that way.
