Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock Review

Protect your investment with the etrailer wheel locking device. Simply go up to your tire, take these two apart. We're gonna go to where it goes on to our rim right there. And then once we're done, we can take these keys and we just press in this little lock cylinder here and then use the little cap to protect that core from any type of water damage and your trailer is locked up. To take it off, we just take one of the two keys that's in our kit. The tumbler is gonna be pretty pick proof because of our circular key.

So that's gonna give you extra peace of mind that no one's gonna be able to pick it. Once that pops out, we can take it and then we can put it back like this for storage. You can store it with the trailer and the toolbox like we have here, fits in there pretty nicely. It's a pretty small toolbox but you can also keep it with the vehicle. If you have a truck, throw it in the toolbox or just throw it underneath your seat.

This is gonna work with your tires that are anywhere from six and three quarter inches wide in the smallest. And then it's gonna go all the way up to 10 and a half inches wide. So you just wanna measure your tires to make sure that'll work. And another thing to think about is the reach. So from the inside of the crossbar to the tip of the clamp, that's gonna be our reach.

And that is eight and 1/2 inches. The whole goal here is to just go over to our tire and just make sure it's just gonna go past where the tire and the wheel meet. That's gonna be our reach right here with our 205/75 R15 tire. It reaches perfectly. This isn't just for trailers.

If you have wheels on something, you can use it. Maybe a golf cart, a side by side full wheeler or a vehicle, but this just shows you that with the larger tires like we have here, it's not really gonna work. It's not really the width of the tire. It's more of the reach. So the reach, what you wanna do is just measure from where your rim starts to go in to the very outside. We just wanna make sure it falls within those bounds we talked about earlier to make sure it's gonna fit. This is a 265/75 R16 tire. If that helps. My tire on my vehicle barely didn't fit. It's about eight and three quarter inches from the inside out here. So you have to make sure you're under eight and 1/2. This is gonna be great for storage when you can't really keep an eye on your rig throughout the whole entire winter season. So this is going to be nice and bright. So whoever wants to steal your trailer is just gonna look at it and walk away. So this is gonna prevent anybody from hooking up and then rolling with it. Let's just say they could hook up to your trailer. It's gonna be very, very tough to not destroy the trailer by doing this, but this is not a chock, okay You need to use these with wheel chocks. This is just going to lock it into place. The steel construction makes it super, super strong. So it's gonna hold up even if someone tries to go and take your trailer. And we also dip the edges right here. So if you have pretty aluminum wheels like this it scratch a little easy. You don't have to worry about it scratching with our etrailer wheel lock. This may come in handy. The handle's gonna be eight and a quarter inches long. So if you do want to put it in between your tires for whatever reason on your dual axle trailer you might wanna just chock the outsides of these wheels. But if you like to chock on the inside of the wheels it's gonna be just as secure if you just take this and then go on the outside. I think it all just comes down to what you really want and what depth going on on your rig. 'Cause this is gonna be just as secure as doing it in between the two tires. One thing I suggest getting for your setup is a set of these. What is this Well, it's a lug nut lock. So it's gonna prevent your wheel from coming off. If someone really wanted to steal your trailer and they saw this on there, if they we're really smart they would look at your spare tire. Take that off, jack this thing up, take this whole tire off and put the spare on and then they could use your trailer just like normal. So I do recommend locking your wheels to your trailers just to prevent any kind of theft from happening. If you already have chocks for your trailer the etrailer wheel lock is gonna be very nice. But if you need both, Trimax does make one that doubles as a chock. If you wanted to go that route. So that's something maybe I would compare it to but at the same time, they're pretty much the same thing. This one's just gonna prevent it from rolling as well. So that's what we got on our website. I really hope this helps. And that's everything you need to know about the etrailer wheel locking device..

etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock - 288-02020

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (325 Customer Reviews)

This anti-theft device provides your car, trailer, or ATV with visible, locking security. The adjustable claw clamps easily around your tire and wheel, and locks into place. Soft-coated arms won't scratch your rims. Includes 2 tubular keys.


After someone attempted to steal my business trailer but failed due to the hitch being locked, they attempted to roll it to the street but gave up as a neighbor spooked them. Found the etrailer wheel lock to be affordable, well designed, easy to operate, and effective. Also added a lug nut lock so the tire cannot be removed.
The website and service was good and the product was shipped within a few days.
I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an effective solution for those concerned about vehicle or trailer theft.

After using the Stallion Trailer Wheel Lock for over a year now, I am pleased to say it continues to work properly and is an effective solution to prevent trailer theft. A very economical and effective tool that I would recommend to anyone with a trailer exposed to the outside world.
Jerry F - 07/06/2018
They work great we use them on all of the trailers we keek at our warehouse.
-- comment by: Bill A - 07/22/2022


The wheel lock was exactly as etrailer described and fit my travel trailer perfectly. Ordering was easy and delivery was quick.

Working great. Easy to operate, yellow maybe looks a tad garish but thats the point, right?
Chris - 08/03/2023


Bought this to put on my boat trailer. Very well made and I think it's going to be a relief knowing it's secured.

All is working fine with no issues

Trailer Wheel Lock is Durable and Heavy. Excellent product

Product is still working great.
Willie - 06/14/2023


This trailer lock is easy and simple to use. Quick to put on and quick to remove. My trailer hasn’t been stolen yet!


I haven’t been using this device because it is difficult to create a snug fit and hard to lock and unlock. I purchased a good hitch lock that is much easier to use and secures our travel trailer. This device has several “notches” where it locks. If your tire is in between two of those positions, you are forced to loosen it to the next wider setting making it fit the tire and wheel loosely.


The weld prevents the lock from locking into the closest position. As a result the wheel lock is loose and floppy and it may be possible to pry it off without too much trouble. Otherwise it is just fine. John


Great deterrent. We had a trailer stolen that used a lock between tandem wheels. Bad choice; easily kicked out. This lock is the one we should have bought. Trailers have been safe since the addition of ball lock and this wheel lock!


these wheel locks seem to work well. the metal is thinner than I expected but makes them easier to handle.


Wheel lock will keep the honest people honest. A good saws all and a couple minutes would make short work of it. The metal is pretty thin. But for the price point you get what you get.


Since you asked.... total POS. I put the wheel lock on my trailer and the next morning I pulled out forgetting it was on there. I felt a soft bump and then another and then it dawned on me that it was on there. The first bump was on grass and the second was on asphalt. It took me less then 3 minutes to pry it apart with a screw driver after the key broke off in the lock. Conclusion- I THINK IT WOULD HAVE TOTALLY DISINTEGRATED ID I DROVE ANOTHER 50 FEET. I'm not mad because it was my own damn fault but I'm really glad it didn't damage my trailer! Strictly for show.

With any lock, it is not going to be 100 percent theft proof. Whenever you are looking to secure a trailer, the best strategy is to use multiple locks together like the wheel lock part # 288-02020
etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock
along with a coupler lock like part # TMX67FR
Trimax Dual Purpose Coupler Lock and U-Lock for 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16" Couplers
which fits all three coupler ball sizes. Using multiple locks together will make it unappealing to a would-be thief.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 10/14/2022


Unbeatable piece of mind for the money! I've used it for over a year and it still looks and works like new.


The lock sticks frequently and the barrel key fell apart


Very good product! Recommended by our insurance company to receive additional rate discounts. We primarily used a ball hitch lock plus a chain through a tie-down, but this acts as another excellent visual deterrent we won't drive off with! Fast delivery and free shipping, along with quality products keeps me coming back!!!


We use these on all of our trailers as an extra layer of security, especially when being parked on the street overnight. They are simple and intuitive to use!


I just received my wheel lock and it seems to be a quality product. I’m sure a thief would be able to get this off but it will at least make it harder to steal.


this lock is very easy to install and remove. the locking mechanism works well.


This lock has worked great for me. It's fast to put on and seems really secure.

The only minor complaint is that the little piece of rubber between the lock cylinder and rubber lock guard has broken (likely because it got too much sun exposure). It's not a huge deal, I just need to remember to not misplace the rubber lock guard.

A year later and the rubber cover is entirely gone. It seems to work just fine without it though. Overall Im still super happy with this product.
Ben - 08/11/2022


Little disappointed that it will not fit the older drum brake systems with a backing plate. The baking plate interrupts the function of the claw so it will not insert.
Other then that seems like a good product.


I love the wheel lock. I wanted to leave my golf cart in the driveway without the worry of theft. Looked at it. Read the reviews. Thought I'd give it a shot. Everything I have puchased from etrailer has been great, sturdy and functioned as described. Putchase with confidence. Btw...easy to use too.


Fit and adaptablity was perfect installed on 79 cj7


Product was delivered very quickly. Everything is in good condition and as described. Hopefully this product deters your average person. I'm using in combination with another deterrent on the hitch.


Lock was easy to use..took seconds to install on the trailer wheels. Tested and the wheels do not budge.. Highly recommended for personal and light commercial use.


Easy to use and good design


We have a small trailer pulling behind an SUV. This really cuts down the rocking as we drive.

  • Will Stallion Trailer Wheel Lock 288-02020 Fit a Golf Cart Tire
    Golf carts generally have wide tires much like some ATVs. The Stallion wheel lock # 288-02020 is designed to fit tires that are 6-3/4" to 10-1/2" wide. Provided that your cart tires are within that range you can use this lock. What is the tire size on your golf cart?

  • Trailer Lock Recommendation for Gooseneck Trailer with Atwood Coupler
    Since the Atwood AMPlock gooseneck coupler locks are no longer around your best option for a coupler lock will be a wheel lock to lock the trailer like the wheel lock part # 288-02020. This locks the trailer just as effectively as a coupler lock but is universal enough to fit basically any trailer out there or vehicle. It's the best solution for gooseneck trailers like yours where there isn't a coupler lock that fits the coupler.

  • Will the etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock Work On a Dually Axle Trailer
    It sounds like you are referring to a dually setup rather than a tandem axle setup. If that is the case then you should have no issues at all with the etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock part # 288-02020. The arms gets removed for installation so you can pivot the other between the two tires and then make the final adjustments.

  • Does etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock # 288-02020 Prevent Wheel from Getting Removed
    The etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock # 288-02020 that you referenced is designed to prevent a trailer from rolling. Now if someone had access to a different wheel they could put on the trailer instead of the one that the # 288-02020 was attached to yes they could take the trailer. But that would require them to have access to the correct size wheel and tire with correct bolt pattern and lug nut tools etc so that would be a pretty unique opportunity for a thief.

  • Are There Replacement Parts for etrailer Anti Theft Trailer Wheel Lock?
    Unfortunately there aren't any replacement parts available for the etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock # 288-02020. You will need to replace the entire unit.

  • How To Determine Fit of etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock
    The etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock part # 288-02020 will work on any wheel/tire with a width between 6-3/4" - 10-1/2". I don't have a list of every wheel/tire that the lock fits unfortunately but so long as yours is within this range you'll be good to go. Please note, it can be hard to accurately measure the width of a wheel using a tape measure so I recommend obtaining the tire size and using a calculator online to determine the exact size.

From the research that I did it looks like you might have 17" wheels on your 2010 Maxda CX-7 which means that the Tire and Wheel Lock would not be compatible. If you let me know what the size the tire on your CX-7 is, it will be found on the sidewall and look like 225/75-15, then I can confirm whether it fits or not. If you do have 17" tires then you could...

  • Could Bolt On Coupler # CTA-280 Be Unbolted and Stolen
    There isn't a locking solution for the bolt on couplers like the Trailer Coupler # CTA-280 that you referenced but someone would have to have the needed tools and the correct coupler on hand to then reinstall on the trailer so that they could drive off with it. That's not a totally impossible scenario but pretty unlikely. You might be interested in a wheel lock like the # 288-02020 as well as this would lock the trailer regardless of the coupler style.

  • Locking Coupler Solution for Trailer with Anderson Ultimate Hitch Receiver Adapter
    There isn't a lock mechanism for the coupler portion of the Andersen Ultimate adapters like you found out when you contacted them. This is due to there not being a great way to lock the mechanism and the uniqueness of the system means the likelihood of a thief having the same setup on their truck is pretty unlikely. In situations like this a wheel lock like the part # 288-02020 is your best option.

    It looks like you have the Bulldog Zinc Top Wind A-Frame Jack - 5,000 lbs # BD1750290301. If your old jack had a higher capacity and you are exceeding the capacity of 5,000 lbs it could be more difficult to use/should not be used since it is not designed for more weight. Outside of that, the only good explanation is that this is a different design/different jack than your old one so it is more difficult to use by comparison.
