May I suggest a longer chain, that goes over the torsion bars.
The fact that you could

In fencing cattle, it is not important or practical to construct a fence that the cattle can't
jump or run through. It is only necessary to construct a fence that the cattle won't
jump or run through. So too with security measures.
My goal is to make it impractical to steal the trailer without 15 minutes of the theft-in-progress being obvious to anyone who sees it. I don't think you can show up, jack both axles, and replace both wheels, nearly that quickly, and it's going to be pretty obvious what you're up to. While 15 minutes is an arbitrary threshold, it's enough that, psychologically, anyone who steals the trailer is going to have to have brass, uh, nerves, or a lookout, or both, unless I'm parked someplace really dumb.
