How to Prevent Theft of the Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller


Seems like anyone could walk by, unplug it and walk off with a $+ item.

There is no way to lock the Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller part # C51180 to your vehicle, that is correct. In order to deter theft you will want to unplug the unit and place it in your truck each time you are in an unfamiliar area. The unit can then be plugged right back in without going through the setup process.

For a wireless brake controller that would require more effort to steal, I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy RF Wireless Trailer Brake Controller part # 90250 which gets bolted to the trailer frame. This unit uses a handheld controller to activate the manual override rather than a mobile device.

I have attached a review video for you.
