Husky Universal Coupler Lock is the one!!!

The coupler lock that will work on the 2007 23 Safari is:

Husky Universal Coupler Lock #39594
5/8" hardened steel shackle, reversible & has over 40 lockable positions.
Corrosion resistant solid die-cast housing,
High security, pick resistant lock cylinder... and looks good!

(The Gorilla lock will not work on my coupler because of its high curved flange.)

For those of you in the San Diego area the following dealer has 3 in stock:
San Diego Trailer Supply
6881 El Cajon Bl.
619-286-1200

I ordered mine today. I noticed that there are two brands, the Husky and another name. They appear to be the same. From the photo, you purchased the non husky brand, are you satisfied with it?
Just curious.

I also like the ideas regarding the use of a cable between the two wheels. any suggestions for a brand or type? Which is the hardest to cut?
Thank you.

Thanks for the question, BoatBoy

Well I just went out and looked at my coupler (hitch) lock.

It does have the logo "DT Security" stamped on the front left side.
But I remember the packaging as saying: Husky Universal Coupler #39594.

And it looks identical to this one offered on-line:
http://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/rv-hitches/trailer-locks.htm

And yes, it works very well and I continue to be very happy with it!

Cost?

SilverGate -

Nice solution to a problem that all of us face, but would naturally prefer to ignore.... at our own, and our AS's! peril.

What is the cost of the Husky lock? It is chromed, yes?

BTW - has anyone changed the yoke on the AS to a BullDog version. It is a sort of "C" that pinches down on the stinger ball.

According to several trailer people I have been talking with (about another trailer), they to a ONE! say that the BullDog is better/safer/etc.... Any opinion - either + or -...? Certainly the rating and such are the very same if not better than the standard issue.... Looking for input here....

Hi SilverToy--

The cost is about $40. It looks & feels like it's chromed.

But I am happy that at least this one fits the hitch ball receiver on the yoke of the current Airstreams... at least my 2007 23' Safari.

But I also keep my Safari where I can see it daily and not in a storage lot!

Cheers,

SilverGate

About the Masterlock ball lock

I purchased a Masterlock keyed alike set (hitch, ball lock, and hitch bar) and found the ball lock does NOT fit into the Airstream coupler. I had to get a Gorilla....
for 2007 25 Safari SE...

I then got a LIFELINE keyed alike hitch and hitch bar combo. Since I have a 2.5" hitch bar I had to get a special order.

Masters universal coupler lock will fit as I have it on mine, easy to use about 20 bucks. Like someone said make sure your hitch is welded on and not just bolted to the trailor.

Hi, I guess having a "Gorilla" tied to the tongue would help from theft. What do you feed him?

I just ordered a Guardian G-37 tongue lock for my Safari; I like the way they work, fit, and the type of key it uses. [round] On this type lock you have to order one for 2 5/16" Rolled Lip Coupler. Camping Word sells this brand, but doesn't stock the G-37.

Back a while on this thread it was mentioned that AS was not much of a target for crooks. My insurance agent had one a few years ago and the low down belly crawlin' mis-ar-able scoundrels broke in (inside the locked storage area) and gutted the fridge, stove etc.. I can lock the tongue and make life really difficult for the common crook taking it, but how do you keep them from stripping it????? I have a spot in a verrry big indoor storage facility with much , much more desirable stuff around me. I hope that by hiding behind all that chrome my rivet ladened aluminum is unscathed.

I uses a coupler lock, but, I think that it probably gives me a false sense of security. A thief does not need a hitch connection to quickly drag your trailer away.
I think a wheel boot-lock would be the best way to go.
Then maybe a Lo-Jack device.

We use a coupler lock (and it's in a locked covered port)...certainly can't hurt...most crooks are looking for an easy mark...and most are not going to go to the trouble if there's any good deterent... Our dogs (and neighbors) would also notice if someone were trying to dray it away!
