    What do you guys use and what do you like? I never lock my trailers just the doors (they sit behind a locked gate) but I'm lending my open trailer to a friend and he had his trailer stolen last year. I don't wan't my s**t ripped off.

    I want good protection. Back in the day I had a masterlock and it didn't fit a 2 5/16th hitch very well.

    I have 6 Alpha locks that i use. I have 2 for each dump trailer, one for my car if needed and also for the enclosed when needed. Heres a link from ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/AL80...ptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

    If you have a tandem axle trailer, get two and keep them on the same side. If you get one, itll leave you the chance of them taking the tire off and driving off with it. With two you won't give them that chance.
