Trailer & caravan security options
How do I keep my trailer secured and locked up? Whether you tow an expensive caravan, camper trailer or a box trailer with an expensive library of tools, keeping your trailer safe from pesky thieves has never been easier. With more anti-theft devices on the market than ever, locking up your trailer is a breeze.
A coupling lock is a handy accessory which are used to secure your trailer when it has been disconnected. Coupling locks prevent your trailer from being connected to a tow ball and being stolen when out of sight. Some coupling locks also allow the trailer to be locked to your own tow vehicle so it can't be removed without a key.
For an additional line of defence from theft, a wheel clamp is a great idea for locking down your trailer. Whilst they will physically stop the trailer from moving or being towed away, they are highly visible and will help to deter thieves from even trying to steal your gear. Another handy accessory to prevent theft of your towing gear is a lockable hitch pin. As you know, replacing tow hitches is a costly exercise. Since they are generally only being secured by a basic hitch pin, thieves can make light work of your tow hitch. Lockable hitch pins can only be removed with a key, safely securing your tow hitch from the hands of thieves.
When it comes to security, there's no such thing as too much. A combination of the accessories mentioned above will ensure that your trailer stays right where you left it.
