The Boot

Check these out..

Here are a few links to the locks or boots I refered to above.

www.fishing-catalog.com/hammerlock/wheel.htm
http://www.universalboot.com/english...cts/boot1.html

Copied from the AS website, posted by another AS owner.

I think it beats LoJack. Visual deterent. Kinda hard to move the trailer if the wheel won't turn and you can't get he wheel off....

Paul -

I had been doing some checking into these types of wheel locks earlier today, as well as doing a search on this forum of the prior discussions on this subject.

One of the wheel locks that someone had mentioned previously is the Trailer Keeper Wheel Lock offered by Cabelas for about $60.00.

I like the concept of a wheel lock/boot, and like it even more if you can get similar protection for $60 versus $180-$300, and up that some of these locks cost.

I wonder if anyone has any 1st hand experience using any of these specific products.

John

I use a wheel lock by Pit Bull . It is like a big pincer that connects to the wheel. I have moon caps on my 67 so I needed one that did not have to go thru the wheel itself. Also, make sure you get one that covers the lug nuts so that the tire can't be taken off. It was a few hundred $ but I feel better when leaving the trailer.

Thanks for the heads-up. Reading through the site...


http://www.trailerlock.com/

this product seems to offer the same protection as the more expensive models. It is interesting to read on the site about how easy it is to defeat hitch/tongue locks. I'm glad I read it.

Thanks again!

Further reading of the trailer lock website has disclosure that it won't work on cast aluminum "mag" style wheels. May have to call and clarify. I was concerned that it does not cover the lug nuts, but the site says the design compensates and this is not a problem. Any thoughts?

Checked Pit Bull, not sure which one I would need. Will calll and to check and price.

Think the boot idea is great!

Just found this old thread -- Does anyone out there use a wheel boot? We are considering the Universal Boot, but my gosh are they expensive!
