Suggestions for a Lock for ProPride Hitch

We got home with the new 2014 International 27FB Onyx and I noticed 2 things when I stored it:

(1) My trailer hitch was locked to my new ProPride WD Hitch so no one could steal my new ProPride without cutting the bolt on the lock.
(2) However, my ProPride sat there totally unprotected from someone with a ProPride stinger on their truck who might back up and drive off with not only my ProPride but the trailer as well. (Unlikely, but possible)

I put two locks on the ProPride but wondered if someone had a better suggestion.

I am aware I could buy a couple X-Chocks with locks, but after blowing a brand new tire driving off with an X-Chock still in place (I know, I know) I have reverted to low tech "forgiving" plastic chocks.

Interested in stopping unprotected hookups.

Locks through latch holes.

Remove latch toggles.

Peace and Blessings..

Leave the stinger in the ProPride. Put a heavy duty locking hitch pin the the hole in the hitch bar. (where it would be if hitched). Now you don't have to find a place to store the hitch bar.

Replace the two brass pins that lock the ProPride head to the hitch bar with two padlocks that have the largest diameter and shortest length shank as will fit. (this is to ensure no one walks off the hitch bar).
