trailer security

After much research I decided on these trailer locks. For the hitch it is Megahitch coupler vault. I suggest watching the video at their website. When I can afford it, it will be the Brahma wheel lock, It is pricey but when your talking a 30 000$ trailer not so much. Note be sure to lock up your safety chains. I always knew most hitch locks only keep the amateurs at bay.

That would do the trick, for sure. My new truck needs a chipped key though, the older Fords did not, and thus an easy theft target.

Their (Megahitch) youtube vid of breaking off competitor's coupler locks is rather distressing!

What I find distressing is the guy who so readily breaking the competetor's locks and is promoting his own product can't seem to figure out how to use the Sawzall on his own product and quickly "surrenders." Give me 3 minutes with the Sawzall and the Megahitch. Furthermore, it appears the Megahitch uses a cylindrical key. I know people who can easily pick these locks. Any lock can be picked. Persuasive video, but where is my salt shaker. I need a grain.

I did not see all the vid. Thanks. I wondered about their lock too.

We had a similar thread about the same lock a few months ago. I'd need a boxcar of salt for their claim. Don't like phony biased claims of "testing" their competition and pretending to make their own product look better.
