Trailer Lock Suggestions from Trailer Boss

No Comments

Small town police often respond to incidents such as this one found in the Huntsville, Alabama March 14, 2014 police blotter.

Craigmont Road: A 14-foot trailer with tools and ladders was stolen in the 9000 block between 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

There isn’t anything Trailer Boss can do about burglaries, but we do, however, have some suggestions on avoiding having your trailer stolen.

Paint your trailer. Thieves are less likely to steal a trailer that is easy to identify. Generic lookingtrailers say, “Steal me.” Put a logo on your trailer or paint it an unusual color.

Invest in Security Devise

There are a variety of locks you can put on your trailers.

–Hitch locks. These work by making it impossible for a thief to attach his or her vehicle to your trailer. The lock fits into your hitch and is secured with a key.  This does not make the trailer completely secure.

–Tongue locks include the trailer chains when securing the hitch.

–Coupler locks are normally used while your trailer is still hitched to your vehicle.

–Trailer-wheel locks are attached on the outside of the tires. When the trailer-wheel locks are in place, thieves can’t move the trailer.

–Trailer alarms are similar to car alarms. Sensors are attached to the trailer.

–Tracking devices make it easier to find your trailer if it’s stolen.
