Dutton-Lainson Trailer Coupler Locks - DL13980

  • Latch Lock
  • Dutton-Lainson
  • Keyed Unique
  • Universal Application Lock


HITCH-LOCK Trailer Guard

The Hitch-Lock bolts to the bottom of the coupler and has a removable plate that extends out directly below where the ball goes in. With the plate angled up, the trailer is protected from someone trying to hitch up to it. When towing a trailer with the plate angled down, it prevents someone from removing the hitch ball already in the coupler.

  • Protects both attached and unattached trailers
  • Patented design shields padlock from bolt cutters and hacksaws
  • Padlock sold separately
  • Zinc plated TUFFPLATE finish
    • Zinc plated yellow chromate TUFFPLATE finish has three times the corrosion resistance of standard zinc plated trivalent chrome process and 30 percent greater corrosion resistance when compared to powder coated finish. Results of lab test using 5 percent neutral salt spray confirms our TUFFPLATE finish provides in excess of 500 hours against First Red Rust and in excess of 100 hours of First White Corrosion.
  • Made in the USA

HITCH-LOCK Trailer Guard Coupler Lock by Dutton-Lainson - DL13980

Ordered the Hitch-Guard Trailer Lock from etrailer and originally ordered the wrong lock to go with it. Heidi helped straighten the order out with new lock. Excellent job Heidi! Then, Nicole kept me updated on shipping because order was on back order. She kept me informed of each step of the shipping... excellent customer service!! My only complaint is that upon arrival, lock requires me to modify my trailer coupler to install. I now have to get a piece of metal wielded to the bottom of coupler to have a place to install lock. 583754

Ask the Experts about this Dutton-Lainson Trailer Coupler Locks

  • Recommended Coupler Lock For Adjustable Ball Coupler
    The HITCH-LOCK Trailer Guard Coupler Lock by Dutton-Lainson # DL13980 is a great option for both keeping your trailer coupler locked in place and deterred from theft. You of course need an external padlock like the Master Lock Shrouded Padlock # 37DAT for this application. If you are just looking for a lock when the trailer is not coupled, I recommend the Trailer Coupler Lock - Gorilla Guard for 2" Couplers # 63228 or # 63227 in 2-5/16 inch.

  • Coupler Lock Recommendation for 2018 Aliner Ranger
    It was kind of hard to find a decent picture of the coupler on your 2018 Aliner Ranger 10 but based on your description and what I was able to find online it appears to be a yoke style coupler like the # PSE338050303. For that style of coupler I'd recommend the Fastway Universal Trailer Coupler Lock for 1-7/8", 2" and 2-5/16" Couplers # DT25013KA which will fit and work well. This is our most popular coupler lock because of how well it works and how many styles of couplers it fits....

  • Coupler Lock to Protect a Boat Trailer Both at Home and at the Boat Ramp
    What you could use is the HITCH-LOCK, # DL13980. With the plate angled up, the trailer is protected from someone trying to hitch up to it. When towing a trailer with the plate angled down, it prevents someone from removing the hitch ball already in the coupler. It can be used with the trailer hooked up or not. You will need to use a pad lock like # 37DAT with this HITCH-LOCK. It is also zinc plated for corrosion resistance so it would be good for a boat trailer. For a lock that can be...

  • How Does the HITCH-LOCK # DL13980 Work
    The HITCH-LOCK, # DL13980 does not have to be totally removed in order to hitch up to a trailer. With the plate angled up, the trailer is protected from someone trying to hitch up to it. When towing a trailer with the plate angled down, it prevents someone from removing the hitch ball already in the coupler. It can be used with the trailer hooked up or not.

    The diameter of the hole on the Dutton Lainson Lock part # DL13980 that you referenced where a padlock would slip through is 7/8 of an inch. We recommend the Masterlock Padlock part # 37DAT for this lock.

  • Lock Actuating Coupler On Trailer To Truck
    For your trailer with adjustable ball # T4339720 to be locked to your truck while boating, I recommend the HITCH-LOCK Trailer Guard Coupler Lock by Dutton-Lainson # DL13980 along with the Master Lock Shrouded Padlock # 37DAT. This will work as long as you have a hitch lock on your ball mount like # 5201 so they can't just use your ball mount to take the locked trailer.

  • Recommended Trailer Coupler Locks for Wide Coupler Security
    For your Atwood Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler 80060, I recommend the Fastway Universal Trailer Coupler Lock for 1-7/8", 2" and 2-5/16" Couplers # DT25013KA or Master Lock Heavy-Duty Coupler and Latch Lock Combo for 1-7/8", 2", 2-5/16" Couplers # 3784DAT are both good options. The latter doesn't have any restrictions of the width of the coupler.
