    I lock my tongue in the closed position and use a Reese receiver lock in the ball receiver.


    I think the Reese piece can be compromised quickly as it doesn't seem beefy enough.

    The other think I do is use two cables (one per side) and run them through the slots in the wheels and lock with a decent padlock. That's easily defeated with a pair of spare wheels, but it makes it a PITA to a thief and adds time to an attempted theft.

    If someone really wants your trailer, they're going to get it. The more deterrents you can add to have a thief move on the better. I think that's about all you can do...

    a good old fashioned star wheel is my cup of tea, because its a basic clean yet attractive lookin design, but for some reason the NT03M is one of my favorites
