A couple of ratchet straps and a pre rigged modified ball mount and about 15 seconds is all it takes. Wheel locks with locking lugs is the safest when storing your trailer in questionable places imo

I wouldn't have thought of that. The hazard of thinking like a basically honest guy.

My buddies 2 snowmobiles were stolen that way. This last November actually. They found his trailer attached to a stolen Ford a coupe towns over. Of course, no sleds. Good thing he had insurance. They still haven't been found.

First photo is fuzzy gas station surveillance photo of the stolen truck and trailer. The next one is him picking up his trailer from the cops.

I run a BRINKS 15' cable through all 4 wheels and throw a Brinks lock on it. Brinks also insures it for $10,000, so the package says. I lock the ball hitch lock too. I once forgot about the cable lock and made it about 3 feet before I came to an abrupt halt.
