Source for Megahitch or Proven Industries lock?

Is anyone aware of an online source for either the Megahitch lock or the Proven Industries 2178 hitch lock that will ship to Canada?

Thanks.

Megahitch

Proven Industries

I ordered my Proven Industries lock from the manufacturer's website. I would expect they will ship anywhere...


Proven Industries - Home


BTW you need model 2516 for the Atwood coupler

Thanks for the heads-up on the correct model number. I will contact Proven Industries and see if they will ship directly to Canada.

Don't count on that. Many U.S. retailers outright refuse to ship out of the country, and others will send product, but use couriers that charge ridiculous fees to cross the border.

I don't see any ordering ability on that website, just a contact form and list of distributors (only for the U.S.).

I think you mean 2516-A, as discussed in photo of 21' Escape coupler (current one)

Proven Industries confirmed that 2516-A was the correct model and I was able to order from them directly. USPS was offered as a shipping option so hopefully I will avoid the brokerage charges you usually get with UPS and FedEx.

2516-A

Sure, no problem.

I also own the Brahma Wheel Lock which I really like. Two expensive locks is probably overkill but more security can't hurt. Insurance would cover theft of the trailer but it would be a one year wait period to order a new Escape and possibly an entire season lost.

I leave the wheel lock at home when we are out camping. It will be nice to be able to install the Proven Industries once setup at the campsite.

will check out that wheel lock too . Saw a Oliver recently and they installed rings in concrete and put a heavy welded chain front and back I think it was to the axle . Pat
