Video Transcript for RackEm LockEm Magnum Wheel Lock Review

Today, we're going to be reviewing Part Number RA-25. This is the Rack'em Manufacturing Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock. This system is designed to go around your wheel. It is reversible, so in this side, you're going to be able to fit 12" to 15" wheels, on this side, you're going to be able to fit 15" to 20" wheels. You can see how it separates. Nice steel construction with rubber-coated arms, so it's not going to do any damage to your wheel.

Now, this system is going to be perfect for trailers, different types of trailers, vehicles, agricultural use, so can even slap this thing on a tractor and lock it in place. It's going to help prevent theft. We're going to put the Rack'em Wheel Lock on a few different applications today. The first one is going to be right here on our truck tire. Now, there's a few things to keep in mind when installing this. For an easier install, it's nice if you go ahead and set the keys towards the outside of the vehicle so it's going to make your install a little bit easier as far as getting access to the key into the lock.

The other thing to keep in mind is you definitely need to choose the right side. It has a sizing chart right here. Our wheel today is a 17"-wheel, so we're going to use this area down here. When we flip it, it's going to allow it, the key, to be on the outside. Then all we have to do is place one unit behind the wheel, then we're going to take the other half and slide the two pieces together. Then all we have to do is move the key to a lock position.

You can see here that it's going to hold the wheel lock in place, so if we try to drive forward, it's not going to go anywhere. That's going to dig into the ground, and if we try to reverse, this is going to come up and eventually hit our bumper or the frame of our vehicle. It's really going to do a good job at preventing anybody from being able to take off with our vehicle. Now, we're here at our trailer. We're dealing with a 13" wheel, and so, again, using a sizing chart, it's going to indicate that we need to use this size for a 13"-wheel. We're going to go and separate the two units, place them back together, and then simply move it to a lock position.

If we try to move our trailer forward, you can see here that that wheel lock is going to prevent it from being able to move in a forward motion. Keep in mind that the wheel lock may not fit some low-profile tires. It's going feature one lock. It's going to come with two keys. Now, you want to be sure that you record your key number. They include a little tab, that way, you can write the key number directly on there. We also offer extra keys or replacements with Part Number RA25KEY. You can find that right here at etrailer.com. Simply go to our website, type in your part number, and then you can type in your key number for your specific locks. That's going to do it for today's review of Part Number RA-25. This is the Rack'em Manufacturing Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock. .

Recently had utility trailer stolen and searched the web for security products that would prevent this next time. This product seemed the best security for the price. I'm very happy with it and would purchase it again. 557683

My covered trailer got stolen once before. So I bought a similar producr from amazon. I was not happy it was really light weight. I liked the concept. I noticed home depot uses these. I ordered 2 with matching keyes. . fresh out the box you can feel the difference. These were the real deal. Simple to install. And keeps my trailer safe.. thanks great product. Im looking to buy matching sets for my other trailers. Just wandering if I can get them keyed the same. 135274

Really am pleased with this item. Easy to install, the forks sit snug to wheel. I pulled on trailer after installing. I feel a thief will move on to a easier target. Thanks. 452989

I'm using this on a utility trailer but can find many more uses for it. Having the ability to use it on so many different wheel/tire sizes in one package is a major plus. Built tough to with stand many years of use. I originally had my hitch locked with a padlock, but still had concerns of theft. With the Magnum wheel lock, those concerns are now gone. 91454

I have four expensive trailers, so I purchased two of these in January and two more in February. I had all four keyed alike. Now I only need to carry one key to unlock any of the four wheel locks. That is so convenient! I'm very impressed with the quality and how easy they are to use. They only take seconds to install or remove. (Unless you're a thief, then just "Fuhgeddaboudit") 339551

After a year, Im still extremely impressed. I havent had any problems and all my trailers are safe and sound! I am still giving a rating of five stars ***** !

These wheel locks have made me feel better about leaving my trailer parked. The sun has faded the yellow over time and I did have a little trouble unlocking one but that was due to weather and rain. With a little WD-40 and a minute or two it works fine. So that is a tip...keep a little WD-40 or equivalent on hand or lubricate the mechanism and lock from time to time and all should be good. 549433

All the information I've read about the RA-25 is true. Very easy operation and the level of security is excellent. 73971



- RA-25
by:

I have only had Thanx! wheel locks for a couple of weeks, but it gives me peace of mind that they are on there. I don't know how hard it would be to break the lock with a hammer and screwdriver but at least the body of it would take a while to cut through it or they will have to take the wheel off and run on three. I do wish it would actually go into the holes of the rim!! 254552



- RA-25
by:

This is my second set of wheel locks I've bought from etrailer.com. They're the best quality. They give me peace of mind. Especially after I had a trailer stollen. I wish I had bought these before! Then I wouldn't have had my trailer stollen. Etrailer always sends out a great product in a timely manner! Very items I've bought had been just what was advertised. Great products, great prices, great service. Great company! 146395



- RA-25
by:

Great product-- had it now for one year on the wet (oops make that west) coast and it has held up very well to the weather. The paint finish is a bit more faded than I might have expected but really, if that is the only problem, I won't hold that against it. I use this on my boat trailer and was sure to take a photo as proof to my insurer that I have demonstrated due diligence in securing my trailer, both while in storage and when traveling. 255793



- RA-25
by:

Etrailer always has good reviews, good customer service, and great prices. Time will tell if the RA-25 is effective in preventing theft. It is really easy to attach - once its unlocked, you can remove the key and just clamp the 2 halves around the tire - done! I have a medium size atv trailer with 13" wheels and it fits good - the tips of the arms just touch the rim inside and out - there is no way its coming off. It is nice and flat making it easy to store when not in use. The keys and locking mechanism seem well made and work smoothly. Yes, I got locking lug nuts too, so its not easy to remove the wheel. 78653


Comments

I still have my trailer so I guess the locks worked!! Seriouslythough, Im quite happy with both items, especially the rackem wheellock - it is so easy to use. It literally takes 5 seconds to attach orremove. Im very happy I bought it.

- RA-25
by:

I'm a little concerned about this lock. Even using the smaller of the two side, the lock doesn't really "grab" the wheel like I had hoped. By twisting the lock to the side I can get one of the arms to fit into one of the slots in the wheel itself. Then if I close the slide as tight as possible, it does seem to hold better. However, I think it could be moved back to the 'in line' position shown in the photo in the product description. Oriented in that manner it appears to me that the tire and wheel could turn inside of the jaws and the trailer could be slowly moved. If so, the only real protection would come from the outside are destroying the value stem and letting the air out of the tire. I'm not sure I would buy this lock again based on the way it fits my trailer. It may fit better on your trailer. 264285

Work in construction and have compressors, generators, light towers, arrow boards, message boards. We place these items sometimes along the road or in a field. Wheel locks that are keyed alike can be tough. Rack it and etrailer supply a good product for this need. 38280

easy to install. fast shipping. Folks tried to steal my trailer last week with my brand new Cub Cadet lawn tractor locked to the side of the trailer. Hope this does the trick. 258560



- RA-25
by:

As a mentor of a high school robotics team, I purchased this lock for use on U-Haul rental trailers/trucks for out of town and in town events/competitions. It has been used extensively over the year and has never failed to function as advertised. Very easy to apply and remove. Would recommend to anyone looking for a way to provide an additional layer of security to help prevent theft of a trailer/vehicle but not the contents, obviously. When used for its intended purpose it should deter the average thief. I posed the question to my students as a teaching moment and they responded with the two concerns I would have with this product. It can be defeated by carefully cutting through one of the arms using a grinder or sawzall. Granted, that would take some time and would be quite noisy, two things the average thief would like to avoid. The other method would be to jack up the vehicle, remove the wheel with the lock, and put on a spare. Again, time consuming and not something your average thief would want to attempt due to the time and effort involved. I would give this product five stars for its intended purpose, ease of use and price point. 249542



- RA-25
by:

Locks are meant to deter and not completely stop a thief and this wheel lock seems to be one of the best out there. It is simple to use and it shows exactly which side to use. Between this lock and others I'm sure a would be thief will be on to another trailer. 322388


Comments

Considering they are locks and my trailerboat have not been stolen I would say they are holding up fine. No issues with them so after a year they are still doing well. Thank you for asking.

Great product. I coat it with lanolin and silicon but it is rusting at the parts that link together. Very weird, not tons of rust but noticeable.Good part is nobody has stolen my trailer at boat park lot and they do get stolen frequently in Jupiter Florida

I think the product is great. Even though i only use it one way, it's nice to have another option if need be. If I had to say something though, I'd say the lock could be easier to turn, but nothing major. It's not that bad, but it just seems like it could work a little easier. Maybe it has to be tight for a reason, I don't know? But other than that all is fine. 656302



- RA-25
by:

Even though the product is a good idea, it doesn't quite fit in either setting. I haven't put it to a test because I don't want to damage my tire, but I think it can be pried off with the slack needed to fit on. Suggest some finer adjustment settings to allow it to snug up tightly. I doubled up and have the tongue lock too, and my trailer still sits where it was parked a year ago on my secluded lot, but then again, nothing else was stolen either, so better safe than sorry is the only thing to say about that. 647847


Comments

If a thief is determined enough, just about any lock can be defeated. The idea is to provide deterrence, so hopefully the thief moves on to an easier target. Having a lock on the coupler as you do also adds another layer of deterrence.

So far so good. I ordered 4 of these which were keyed alike. I believe they work well as a visual deterrent. I have not had one tampered with yet. My only gripe is that the paint faded very fast and now they are an ugly sun faded color. A nice powder coat would've been a nice feature. 625610

very heavy and solid ,very easy to install and take off. i, have 12" tires and lug locks.Once installed there is no way that the trailer will be moved . Nothing is guaranteed , if some one was carrying and oxygen acetylene torch , i'm sure they might be able to cut it off , but the average 5 finger discount charlie wont . The more security you have the less likely some will target you ,this well worth the money and etrailer has the best price and service . Ron 600217

We have been using this boot now for over six years or more and have had no issue with them. They are keyed alike and light weight for any officer to use quickly. The only time we had a boot broken was when a student whom we booted used his chemical skills to freeze the boot and then break it in half. He got caught and had to pay for two new boots but that was the only way we had a boot break. They are lasting us for years but we need replacements because we boot so many cars. Great product and suggest if you need a boot here is your solution. Motorcycles, boats, trailers, cars, trucks and yes even SUV's. Great customer service and so quick. We ordered 10 boots and received within the week. 539342

Ask the Experts about this Rackem Wheel Locks
Do you have a question about this Wheel Lock?


  • Locking a Trailer that has a Reese Goose Box Adapter/Coupler
  • The design of the Reese Goose Box adapters, such as # RP94716, prohibits the use of locks designed for standard gooseneck couplers. They cannot grab onto the coupler like they are supposed to. To secure the trailer a wheel lock such as # WI490 or # RA-25 or something similar is recommended instead. I have linked some videos on these locks for you.

  • Hitch Pin, Trailer Latch and Wheel Lock Recommendation
  • Check out the Deadbolt Trailer Hitch Lock and Coupler Lock Kit - 2" Hitches # TSK1-AS. This comes with a hitch pin lock, a coupler latch lock, as well as a trailer lock when the trailer isn't connected. Then for a wheel lock the Rack'Em Magnum part # RA-25 can fit basically all standard trailer wheel sizes and would do a great job.

  • Locking a Trailer that Uses Atwood Flat Nose Trailer Coupler 75074
  • What I recommend to keep someone from stealing your parked trailer is a wheel lock such as # RA-25 or a model that also covers the lug nuts such as # WI490. Usually the mere presence of a lock will cause a would-be thief to move on to another target. Coupler locks do not really work with coupler 75074 due to the unique design of the coupler.

  • Trailer Coupler and Wheel Locks to Deter Trailer Theft
  • master Lock trailer coupler lock # ML389DAT would be a bit more secure than lock # 377DAT in my opinion because it would be a little more difficult to pry off. When it comes to locks the best solution is redundancy. In other words more than one lock. You may want to consider also adding a wheel lock such as # RA-25 or # WI490. If a thief sees a coupler lock and a wheel lock they are likely going to move on to an easier target.

  • Recommended Trailer Coupler & Wheel Locks
  • The best type of lock for your Bulldog adjustable 2-5/16-inch trailer coupler depends on the coupler design. If you have a Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler like # BD028585 then I would go for the Blaylock Total-Encasement Coupler Lock # BLTL-23 over the Fastway # DT25013KA simply because it fully surrounds the coupler. Deterrent value is high! If you have other trailers to lock then in that case the flexibility of the Fastway could make it your better option. For just this one trailer, go for...

  • Recommendation for Keyed Alike Trailer Tire Wheel Lock
  • We offer two wheel locks that are able to be keyed alike, the Rack'em Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25 and the Club Tire Claw XL Wheel Lock # WI491KA-491LNP. Between the two of these, I personally favor the Rack'em Lock'em Wheel Lock # RA-25. There are replacement keys available for the Lock'em in case you need any extras or lose a key. The Claw XL does not offer replacement keys. The Lock'em is also more economically friendly.

  • Can the Ends of the Rackem Magnum Wheel Lock be Cut with Bolt Cutters
  • I pulled the Rack em Magnum Wheel Lock, # RA-25, and found that it measured 1 inch x 7/8 of an inch at its narrowest point at the end of the arms. It would be difficult for a thief to use bolt cutters to cut through the arms of this wheel lock and if they did manage to do so, cutting near the ends of the arms will most likely not be enough to actually remove the lock from the wheel. They would have to cut through a thicker section to remove the lock. One thing to remember is that locks...

  • Can Trailer Wheel Locks be Easily Defeated
  • I can pass along your lock concerns to the manufacturers. Any lock can be defeated given enough time and persistence. A wheel lock such as # RA-25 is a deterrent, as all locks are. If a thief wants that trailer bad enough, they'll find a way. Thieves have a tendency to pick the low-hanging fruit; that is to say that the mere presence of a lock is likely to cause a would-be thief to move on to an easier target. Things that take time like removing a tire from a trailer are not worth the...

  • Trailer Lock Recommendation for Trailer With Bulldog Coupler Attached to Tow Vehicle
  • I have a solution that will work great for you, but there really isn't a great way to lock a Bulldog coupler to a hitch ball. What I would recommend you do is use a wheel lock like the part # RA-25 which will attach to a wheel whether or not it is hitched up to a ball mount.

  • Recommended Way to Lock a Fifth Wheel Trailer with a Ranch Hitch Fifth Wheel Adapter
  • What I would recommend for your fifth wheel is actually a wheel lock since the Ranch Hitch part # AM3100 doesn't have a great way to lock it. The most popular option we have is the Rack'em part # RA-25 which would attach to the wheel of your trailer regardless of what coupler you have on your trailer. It has two sizes to fit basically any trailer wheel size. One side works on 12"-15" wheels, the other 15"-20" wheels. Check out the review video I attached for more info as well.

  • Recommendation to Prevent Trailer Theft by Using Safety Chains
  • It is possible to move a trailer by just attaching to it's safety cables. Most people would avoid the method you described as the trailer will slam into the back of the tow vehicle while stopping. Basically it wouldn't be a thief's ideal method for theft of a trailer but it would be an option. As a way to prevent that type of theft I would recommend a wheel lock like the part # RA-25.

  • How To Prevent Trailer Theft Beyond Hitch and Coupler Locks
  • One easy way to prevent someone from removing the ball would be to use a ball mount that has the ball attached (welded) to the shank. That way you won't have to weld a ball to a shank that isn't meant for that type of modification. Some examples include # 45325 or something adjustable that locks like # DTALBM6600. A Wheel lock such as # RA-25 would also be a good idea. The trailer would not be able to be moved with a wheel lock like this on it. And the ball mount/ball may be enough...

  • Will The Rackem Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25 Prevent Wheel From Turning
  • It would be very hard for someone to move the trailer with the Rack'em Magnum Wheel Lock, part # RA-25, attached to your wheel. When the unit is locked the prongs will not move, but the prongs are designed to go through the wheel hole. The tire would have to drive over the lock unit each time the wheel rotated for the wheel to turn. With opportunity and time a determined thief will normally get the item they are after. Using the wheel lock will help deter theft and make your trailer...

  • Parts to Prepare 2011 Honda Pilot to Tow Travel Trailer Through Rocky Mountains
  • Your 2011 Honda Pilot that will be towing your new camper trailer through mountainous terrain in the Rockies will certainly benefit from some performance enhancements. A simple friction anti-sway bar like # 83660 can help with crosswinds and air blasts from passing trucks. These are inexpensive and simple to install; their tension is also adjustable. You just need to use a 2-inch bracket # RP26003 on your ball mount to provide a mounting point for the included ball. Note that this type...

  • Can or Should a Breakaway System be Used to Prevent Trailer Theft
  • To activate a breakaway system such as # 20099 you would just pull the pin out of the switch. With the pin removed the metal contacts inside can touch completing the circuit and supply 12 volt power from the breakaway battery to the trailer brakes. It will not release the brakes until the pin is reinserted or the battery dies. I do not recommend this as a method of theft prevention or to keep the trailer from rolling. What I do recommend is a lock such as # RA-25. The trailer wheel cannot...

  • Can Bolt Cutters Cut the Locking Pin on the Tow Ready Trailer Coupler Lock
  • A set of heavy-duty bolt cutters may be able to break the locking pin on the Trailer Coupler Lock. The locking pin for this coupler lock is 1/2 inch in diameter and is made of 1407 steel. There are heavy duty bolt cutters that are available at hardware stores that have the ability to cut up to 1/2 inch or 9/16 inch diameter objects. Another coupler lock that you may be interested in is the Fastway Coupler Lock, # DT25013KA. This lock uses a 5/8 inch diameter locking pin. Although there...

  • Recommended Trailer Wheel Lock
  • One thing to remember is that locks are for keeping honest people honest. If a thief is determined enough and has enough time, any lock can be defeated. The key is to provide a deterrent, make the potential thief move on to an easier target. As far as convenience, strength and versatility goes, I would have to recommend the Lock em Magnum Wheel Lock, part # RA-25. This lock is simple to operate, is reasonably secure, and will fit a variety of wheel sizes from 12 to 20 inches.

  • Lock Recommendation for Goose Trailer
  • Since I do not know what specific coupler you have the best recommendation I can make is to use a wheel lock that will also trailer but would not have compatibility issues that a gooseneck hitch could. The # RA-25 would work well for this. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Will Rackem Wheel Lock # RA-25 Fit Two Wheels At The Same Time On A Tandem Trailer
  • I pulled a Rack'em Magnum Wheel Lock, part # RA-25 from our warehouse and tried it out on a couple of tandem trailers we have here. I tried to attach the lock to a tandem trailer with 14 inch tires on it. It is designed to really be used on one wheel at a time. The distance between the tires was almost 7 inches and the lock was unable to clamp to both wheels at the same time. I have attached a photo of the lock system that shows the width of the bar that separates the locking arms. Note...

  • Way to Lock Trailer with Multi-Fit Hand Wheel Coupler
  • I have a great solution to lock your trailer but the multi-fit couplers, and especially the one you have, are hard to fit coupler locks on. Your best option would then be the Rack'Em Wheel Lock part # RA-25 which will lock the trailer and bypass the difficult to lock coupler that you have.

  • Wheel Lock And Coupler Lock Recommendation For Trailer To Deter Thieves
  • The best wheel lock system we offer is the Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock, part # RA-25. This system will work on 12 to 17 inch wheels. One side works on 12-15 inch wheels and the other side works on 15-17 inch wheels. The arms measure 1 inch X 7/8 inch at the narrowest point and would be extremely difficult to cut off with a bolt cutter. For added security, you may want to check out part # DT25013KA. This is a coupler lock that will work on 1-7/8 inch , 2 inch, and 2-5/16 inch couplers....

  • Why Cant a Regular Gooseneck Coupler Lock be Used on a Reese Goose Box Adapter
  • The Reese Goose Box adapters such as # RP94716 don't have a straight down-tube like a traditional gooseneck coupler so the locks for regular gooseneck couplers, such as # BLTL-53-40D2, will not work. They cannot grab onto the coupler like they are supposed to. To secure the trailer a wheel lock such as # WI490 or # RA-25 or something similar is recommended instead. I have linked some videos on these locks for you.

  • Wheel Lock for Use on Tractor with 12-Inch Wide x 36-Inch Diameter Tires
  • Thank you for providing a description of the tire size for which you want a lock. Based on your description ("18-inches from the center of the wheel to the outer tread") it sounds like you have a tire with an overall diameter of approximately 36-inches. Please refer to the linked photo. If my understanding is correct then the Rack'em Manufacturing Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25 will not work due to your large tire diameter. All of the wheel locks we offer can be seen on the link...

  • Is the Lock Mechanism on the Lock-em Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25 Replaceable or Permanent
  • The Rack-em Manufacturing Lock-em Magnum Wheel Lock, part # RA-25, uses a replaceable tubular lock mechanism. We offer the replacement lock assembly as part # RA25LOCK, which comes with two tubular keys. The replacement procedure is simple enough: two spring-loaded dowels (one on each side) are pressed inward to unlock the internal housing which then slides out to reveal the access point for removing the original lock. This internal assembly fits snugly so a screwdriver will help to...

  • Can the Club Tire Claw XL # WI491-491LNP be Cut Through
  • The The Club Tire Claw XL Wheel Lock with Lug Nut Protector Plate # WI491-491LNP, just like any other lock for any device, is more of a theft deterrent than a sure-fire way to keep someone from stealing your vehicle or getting at your wheels. Given enough time and the right equipment any lock can be beaten. Because of this (and to avoid would-be thieves from researching how much time they need) there are no "cut times" for the Club Tire Claw XL. If you don't like the design of this wheel...
