Expert Answers about Spare Tire Locks


  • Recommended Spare Tire Lock for 2018 Trailstar Trailer with Integrated Spare Tire Mount Location
  • It does appear to have a mount under the trailer for your spare. It looks like you just need to use some bolts and then use a lock like the Spare Tire Carrier Lock # 262DAT to secure it. Many times when there is not a mount, you would use the Fulton Economy Spare Tire Carrier with Wheel Nut Lock # FETCSTL0701 which can work, but is intended to go around a frame so would have extra length on your application.

  • Will BOLT Spare Tire Lock Work on Boat Trailer Spare Tire
  • Technically yes, the BOLT Spare Tire Lock # BL5922986 will lock onto a boat trailer's spare tire and will hold up to possibly being submerged.

  • Could BOLT Spare Tire Lock part # BL5922986 Fit Underneath Spare Tire Cover
  • The BOLT Spare Tire Lock part # BL5922986 that you referenced can fit under most covers but the best way to determine if it would stick out past the wheel far enough to cause an issue would be to measure from the flange of where a lug nut fits on the wheel out 4.21 inches as that's how far out the lock would stick.
