Video Transcript for Review of etrailer Wheel Locks - Trailer Wheel Lock - 288-02020

Today we're going to take a look at the trailer wheel lock.This anti-theft device has an adjustable claw design that'll clamp easily around your tire and wheel, and it'll lock it into place to temporarily disable that tire and wheel. It is designed to fit most common wheel sizes, because it's designed to clamp around the complete tire. So, the width of the tire is what you want to be more aware of. It is designed to fit anywhere from a six and three quarter width, up to a 10 and a half inch wide tire. The clamp arms, they do have a nice rubber coating on them to prevent any damage to your wheels. So when you put your arm on there it won't hurt any of the wheels.To install it, all you have to do is pop the cover off, put your key in there, turn it, and the lock will pop out.

Remove your key and you're able to slide the arm out just like that. You'll take one of the arms and just clamp it on there. Take the other one, slide it in, so it clamps around there. And then when you get it lined up, push in so it's nice and snug, and you just push that lock in and it'll lock it into place. Then just take your cover and put your cover back over there to protect it.

And then nobody can take off with your trailer.It does provide your car, your trailer, or ATV, with a nice visible locking security. Provides you with the peace of mind, knowing that it'll prevent theft of your trailer. The nice thing is this high visibility yellow cover will not only keep the thief from being interested in your trailer, but according to a lot of our reviews on our customer reviews, it helps people remind them that they have a lock on their trailer. We had some that commented that they would use cable locks that they run through the holes in the wheel, and they don't either remember, or they forget that they have them on there, and they drive off and do damage to their trailer or equipment.Even, what I would recommend is for extra added security, if you're still not convinced it's going to help you, I would recommend adding a lug nut lock to the wheel, for even more obstacles, to keep someone determined to take your trailer.Customers usually looking for this type of product also mentioned they did not want to spend a lot of time trying to lock down their trailer. As you see, when I put it on, the wheel lock can easily be installed or removed in seconds.

So you're not spending a whole lot of time trying to secure your trailer.The only thing you really run into, what I've noticed, let me just show you. We'll take the key and open it up, and you can see it pops out, and then that loosens it just like that, and you can remove it simple like that. The only thing I was going to mention is when you go to install it and slide it in, there's nine holes that it'll line up with, so sometimes you can't really push it in right away. You have to move it a little bit to get a hole to line up, and then it'll push in and lock. That's where most of your time would be spent, is trying to line the hole up, which really isn't a big deal.It does use the tubular key locks on the claw, to place around your tire.

These tubular locks are used since they're very difficult to remove, and the keys themselves are hard to duplicate. It does come with two keys. As I mentioned, it has this nice cover on it. When it's locked down, you just put the cover over there, snap it into place, and it'll protect your lock from any dirt or grime getting into there.The lock can be installed. You can see I have the lock on the outside. It can be flipped over and it can be installed on this side if you prefer, either way. If you notice on the handle itself has a nice non-slip rubber grip, so you can easily install it, and it also looks nice is when it is installed, it'll keep anybody from backing the trailer out.Again, the application, it's designed to fit six and three quarter inch up to 10 and a half inch wide tires. And again, just to show you the adjustments on it, we'll go ahead and pop it off. Put our key in there, turn it a quarter of a turn, take the key out, and you can slide it off. And there's your nine holes of adjustment, each one center to center is about five eighths of an inch, incremented with adjustment. So you just slide it to whatever width you want to fit. Again, just open it up, install it like that, push it together. Once you get in the right position, lock it, put your cover on, and just like that, no worries. You're all ready to go.But that should do it for the review on the trailer wheel lock..

etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock - 288-02020

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (271 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


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.


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


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


Great for locking your trailer. Easy to attach and remove.


This item works well. It appears to lock in a way that would take some time and effort with the proper force tools to get it off the trailer wheel. As with all locks, this is simply a deterrent, but does offer something else for the thieves to get past.

I used the wheel lock on a cross country trip to help secure our trailer at every overnight hotelmotel stop. It worked well as we had no theft issues. The lock itself has remained in good condition and continues to work just fine.
Robert - 12/20/2021


Sent it back. Flimsy quality and did not fit around wider tires.

How wide are your tires? The lock is designed for tires 6-34 - 10-12 inches wide, as noted in the product description.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 09/30/2022


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.


Trailer Wheel Lock is Durable and Heavy. Excellent product


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.


Ordered this product along with a hitch lock. Both arrived timely and are exactly what we ordered. Prior to ordering, I was chatting with a rep as I was unsure of what to order. He was great and was patient with all of my questions. This is one a few orders from etrailer and have been very happy with what we ordered. The tow hitch and the wireing harnesh also arrived timely and was easy to install. We also ordered a manual roof vent and am happy with what was received. At this point we don't have our trailer but we are on a way to being prepared.
Note: Found the website to be very easy to use and customer service to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable.


Accurate description. Works as described and nice quality. Pleased with purchase


Works well on my mobile sawmill. Being buried in sawdust does not bother it; always opens, and locks again with ease. Having it on there gives peace of mind. Good product.


I purchased this wheel lock for a small cargo trailer I pull behind my small motorhome. It allows me to securely leave my trailer at my campsite while I travel around. It works well and I'm happy with my purchase.

Because of covid I havent travelled much. However it still works well.
Gary M - 10/26/2021


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!!!


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.


The rubber cap that covers the lock does not fit well. There is not enough of a 'lip' for it to securely attach to.


Excellent anti-theft device.


Very thin metal. It would be easy for someone to just cut it off. Sending it back.

I am sorry to hear that the metal is not what you expected. I have sent your information over to our customer service department for them to assist you in a return.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 08/17/2022


Some of the best service I have received in a long time. Product came about 4 days early.I've always had excellent service from etrailer.


Always Fast shipping with excellent service. Solid product that I put 1 on each boat and utility trailer


Easy to use, difficult for the bad guys!


Simple and effective security of trailer while traveling with motorcycle trailer on vacation


For the price, I believe it is a great theft deterrent, I use the wheel lock with a tongue lock with the hopes of slowing down a determined thief. I believe it would deter a casual thief by removing the easy opportunity from the equation. I was using a 20 foot long steel cable wrapped around the tires, axles and parking lot structure when leaving the trailer unhitched in condo parking lots during bike weeks or campsites when camping.


Works as advertised. Easy to get on and off.

  • 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?

  • How Small is the Opening of the Jaws When the Wheel Lock # 288-02020 is Closed
    When the Stallion Trailer Wheel Lock # 288-02020 is completely closed the opening only measures about 1-3/4" so it will work perfect for your application.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    The tubular keys like the ones that come with Trailer Wheel Lock part # 288-02020 are designed to not be duplicated by a standard lock smith for security reasons. They are considered Difficult-to-duplicate keys to deter thefts. They would need to be replaced by the manufacturer if lost.

  • 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. The catch on replacement parts for an item like this is it could actually inadvertently encourage people to improperly attempt to remove them which defeats the purpose.

  • 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.

  • Will the Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock # WI490 Fit the Tire on a 2010 Mazda CX7
    The Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock # WI490 will fit 13" - 16" wheels that have tires that are up to 28" in diameter and 9" in width. 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.
