Happy NY all!
I've just purchased big new wheels and tyres for my off road camper and want to make sure they stay attached, including the spare. Any recommendations for lock nuts and a hitch lock (to reduce theft when not attached to the back of the car).
Many thanks
Mike

Gary - not exactly sure what it is - it's on a Track Trailer Desert Eagle, 99 vintage, with Wesco written on it and looks similar to an Orac or an AT35. I'll check out the shop.
Thanks

Neetas,

I have a nice new Coromal Camper with very attractive Tyres and wheels. It came fitted with anti theft nuts. The adapter is obviously readily available to purchase, so doesn't really offer a barrier for a prepared thief.

I secure the van with a length of VERY big and hardened security chain through the spokes of one wheel and around the axle. The chain is attached with a VERY big and tough Master padlock. Once again a prepared thief will cut through this chain, but it will slow down the opportunist. Bunnings has a good range of these chains and locks. The cost was about $100 all up.

Yep - I'm with Kingsley's approach - simple is best - I looked at some of the other stuff but stayed with fat chain and fat padlock - when parked here and there, one safety chain is padlocked to the towbar (alongside of the D shackle - not instead of it !). When we leave the camper somewhere, we lock eveything we can, take the core small valuables with us, then run the said chunky galv chain through one wheel and around the suspension arm - with the aforementioned fat padlock. As usual, some faith in humanity is required as we depart the camp !
