How long did it take to receive yours? And do you kow if they are legitimate???
They're in OKC, right??
Hi, they are legitamte and their site is the same as when I ordered mine. I don't think it took a month to get my coupler lock, maybe two weeks. I would E-mail or call them to see what happened to your order.

this is what i use.

2 locks are better than one

it may not be 100% but it might keep the bad guy moving

I have the same coupler lock. I guess it would require a pretty big tool to cut through it. We've thought of getting a lock for the latch, but never have.

I once had to cut off one of those industructable "U bolt " locks from my daughters bike. That's what happens when you loose the key. I took an air high speed cutoff wheel and it took all of about 10 sec. to remove it. Back then I was limited by the length of the air hose. Now we see all sorts of cordless tools so it's inevitable that someone out there has made or will make a cordless die grinder and I think all those hardened chains and most other locking devices will become childs play to the industrious thief. Where there's a will there's a way. All we can do is try and stay one step ahead but don't forget they are not far behind.

Power tools are noisy, bolt cutters are not. If I were a thief I'd either use bolt cutters or only steal trailers where no one was around. A padlock on the hitch seems a lot easier to cut than the coupler lock. Wheel locks rely on a padlock too, so they aren't very safe. You can let the air out of the tires, but I suppose a boot is the best alternative, though they can be removed fast if you know how.

the whole idea is to make a thief spend time and make a lot of noise if they want your AS.

so you should make any attempt at theft as obvious, difficult, noisy and time consuming as possible.

hopefully you, or someone, would notice.

if all else fails - set out the rabid guard dog....

A set of Denver Boots, one for each side. And remove a wheel or three. Then some ingenuity and best quality locks elsewhere.

Don't forget that an HA or PP hitch head isn't that hard to remove in order to hitch up conventionally.

Sure it's not that she wishes she could flip you to increase bar circumference?

If your the type that repacks wheel bearings every spring, you could just pull the hubs off in the fall and install them in the spring.

Believe me, I've tried to get ahold of them. I've emailed, left telephone msgs and even tried to contact them through Paypal (how I paid originally). Can't get them to respond! I'm
really getting frustrated. Oh well - trying to get Paypal to help me get my money back.

Hi, I wonder if they went out of business. On their site, none of the E-mail options work. Hopefully Pay Pal can get you a refund.

I am that type...

Don't really worry that much when I'm out with the trailer, the HAHA is covered and locked when un-hitched. (most wouldn't have a clue what's under the cover anyway). And as Gene mentioned you can always disable the tongue jack.

When stored for the Winter the tongue is raised and covered, the HAHA & batteries removed, and tires in the basement. So there would-be thief.
