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

Today we're going to take a look at the etrailer.com 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 etrailer.com trailer wheel lock..

This is one heavy duty wheel clamp/boot lock. It appears to be well made of tempered steel and it is easy to install. I purchased this product for my Bass Boat Trailer. Even though I have one of the best Trailer Hitch Ball Locks, I now have a second method of securing my Bass Boat & Trailer while it sits in my driveway. Now, I will rest a little easier knowing that if some low life is contemplating on stealing my boat and trailer from my driveway, he/she is really going to have to really work at it. I'm thinking of getting another on of these wheel clamp/boot locks for the other wheel. I highly recommend this product if you need a wheel clamp/boot lock..it will give you some peace of mind.

Still a GREAT product! No complaints. I highly recommend.

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!!!

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.


Comments
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.

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.

Does what it is supposed to... Makes your trailer look very secure and slow down the casual theif. . It is not hi grade steel so a battery reciprocating saw would go thru the metal pretty quick. Excellent service from etrailer

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.

It appears to work as my trailer hasn't been stolen. LOL It is a little difficult to use but I have gotten the hag of it.

I Have NEVER Experienced Anything Negative with any of the Products I purchased from E-Trailer. You Recieve it on Time and It is As Advertised. Can't wait to Use This Priduct. Keep up The Good Work.



- 288-02020
by:

Its a good choice as long as you also replace the lug nuts with locking nuts. Otherwise, the thief who scouts the trailer can replace the wheel with the device on it. I returned it for the club since it has a plate to block taking off some of the lug nuts, since I do not want to replace the lug nuts with locking nuts.

This trailer wheel lock works great and is all your ad said it would be. I purchased two of them. One for my son and one for me.



- 288-02020

Easy to use, sturdy, doesn't scratch the wheel. Works well as another highly visible component of security to deter the casual/opportunistic thief. Doubles as a last-ditch wheel chock if things go really wrong!

Good quality product that has worked flawlessly for the year I have owned it. A good value for the price as well.

Works perfectly for our teardrop camper hitch. Very happy with the product. We also purchased several other items at the same time and everything worked perfectly and everything showed up as promised.

I can't believe for the price how wonderful this product is. I feel safe leaving my trailer hitched up to my truck out in my driveway every night because no one is going to be able to steal it. I highly recommend it. I have used it every single day for the past year and it is still in excellent condition despite being out in the rain, heat, cold, etc. In fact, I am getting ready to purchase a second trailer for my landscaping business and I am going to buy another on of the these for the new trailer!

Looks it will do the job or at a minimum slow a thief down.

  • 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 etrailer.com 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 Stallion Trailer Wheel Lock # 288-02020 referenced in your question features a standard steel tubular lock. There is a notch on the lock that makes it more difficult to simply drill out and barrel locks are generally much harder to pick than standard flat key lock cores. Manufacturers don't usually rate their locks with regards to how hard they are to pick because the honest truth is if a thief really wants something he will likely find a way to get it.

You have to use the included hardware otherwise the warranty of the trailer would be voided and you'd be potentially unsafe to yourself and other motorists. So for the latch of the coupler you could use a trigger latch...

  • GPS Tracker and Wheel Lock for Trailer to Prevent Theft
    I would recommend a GPS tracker installed on the trailer like with the part # 300-AT3-S which will allow you to have the ability to track where it's at all times. The wheel locks like the part # 288-02020 are also hard to defeat and an easily visible deterant which will help prevent the temptation of a casual thief as well. Beyond that it's just stacking theft deterants to hopefully slow them down. Sorry to hear about your trailer though.

  • 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.

The claws on the Stallion lock have a wedge shape whereas the The CLUB Tire Claw XL # WI491, that the plate is designed to fit, has straight claws.

  • 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.
