about to buy a trailor (cheap camper) and am looking at how to secure it, apart from the locks on cover, i am looking at whether the tow ball lock or wheel lock.

I will eventually have fridge, batteries, solar and belongings in it. i am leaning to the wheel lock (like parking inspectors use), does anyone else do this? the ball lock would one be useful if not connected to car, i suppose i could add another chain lock to car. I have known people to tow a boat out of caravan park (tabourie lake)

I just like the idea of locking everything up and knowing there is good chance of it being there when i got back.

I recently went to Bournda and pretended to be sleeping when some youths came along, they thought no one was there and started to break into my car for my Jim Beam, i lept out of tent and chased the little #$%$#%.

I use the "Python" wire cable locks (Masterlock??) to lock the wheels. You can get these at Bunnings.

hi stoney123
well any lock is piece of mind
but these days if they really want it
there is equiptmt availuble that will literally cut through anything in seconds
like you i do my best to deter the mongrels

hitchlocks /chain locks on gas bottles the chains can have and old bike tube slipped over them to stop chaffing/rattles
spare wheel locks and wheel locks as mentioned but in the end where do you stop with the amount of locks used
it can drive you nuts with all the keys and locks and back up sets of keys etc
so it all depends on where you live or travell to
they say crime doesn't pay but there seems to be a large percentage of people from all walks of life involved in it
which is a sad detriment to our human race
one can only do in respect of locking things up what is practical
other wise is feels like you are imprisoned by the problem
