If someone were to come up with a universal locking system requiring just one key to unlock everything, I'd buy it in a heart beat.
Yep, don't drink too much or you can't find the right key

My foolproof, factory supplied, always-around-your-neck key system. Never leave the tow vehicle or the trailer without it there.

Great minds, Pat. Keys, of course, useless on the backwoods trails. Whistle though, could be a savior.

I agree, it is bulky. Even the more compact designs can get in the way, depending on the chain loop location. In this case, the size of the lock mechanism is driven in part by the relatively large automotive keys that need to fit in it.

That's the point of systems such as the BOLT line, and they get reasonably close if you're willing to change out compartment locks, but the trailer's door would be tough - there are likely too many variations with not enough customers to bother including them.
