Coupler and Receiver Locks Provide Peace of Mind
If you keep your boat on a trailer, have you ever considered how easy it might be for a thief to drive off with your pride and joy? If you haven’t, maybe you should. According to the insurance files of BoatU.S., 73 percent of the boats stolen every year are taken while on their trailer. BoatU.S. also reports that "only about 15 percent of owners whose boats were stolen said their boat had any kind of lock installed."
No security system is perfect, but given the facts, locking your hitch coupler and receiver can go a long way towards a sound night’s sleep. We offer a variety of trailer locks from brands such as Master Lock, C.E. Smith and T-H Marine. A small investment in a sturdy lock can protect you against losing a boat worth thousands of dollars. Locking your boat’s trailer is your first line of defense against theft.
