Best Coupler Lock Options for a 2015 Ranger Trail Boat Trailer


I have a 2015 Ranger Trail boat trailer and am looking into a coupler lock. Which one would you recommend? It has a swing away tongue. Thanks...

We have a few different universal options that I recommend choosing from.

The Master Lock Trailer Coupler Lock # ML389DAT is a great option because it has a bright red color to draw attention to the fact that there is a lock on the trailer. Since the idea behind a lock is to deter theft, drawing attention to the lock will help to intimidate a would-be trailer thief.

One of the most popular options is the Fastway Trailer Coupler Lock # DT25013KA. You can order this lock keyed alike in the case that you have multiple trailers and only want to use one key for all of the locks. The bracket design allows it to fit almost any trailer coupler application.

My personal favorite is the Master Lock Heavy-Duty Coupler and Latch Lock Combo # 3784DAT. Not only does the coupler lock look intimidating, but this kit also comes with a lock for the release lever of your coupler. This discourages someone from taking your trailer when you have it coupled to your tow vehicle.

All 3 options that I presented are compatible with 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16" coupler sizes.

I have attached review videos for each coupler lock for you to reference for further comparisons.
