I have been thinking of a chain and padlock through the wheels but I also have a pair of the chocks that lock between the wheels and can be secured with a padlock. Does anyone use these and feel that they are secure ?????

You're using logic and good sense here! Try the chain/lock combo available at most Harley dealers. You can pull an AS with a hitch lock on to a roll back faster than I can type this response. Try that with the wheels chained. Too, the chain can be used to secure bikes, generators, etc. Sometimes, people over think these issues.

Ditto the chain & lock. Let some air out of the tires and you can kick the locked wheel chocks free...

Thanks Mojo. Hadn't thought about that one. I have some stainless chain so I 'll check to see if it's long enough. I have a shorter piece that I secure the generator in the back of my truck. I do trust people and have never ever had a problem in the camping area's we have chosen but WHY ask for trouble by making it to inviting.

See ya'll on the road sometime

I had those chocks before. Once I forgot to remove them and drove a few yards before I remember. They had twisted out and were laying on the ground where the trailer sat originally.

The lock for the chocks is more about the chocks not being stolen than the TT.

And, thanks for the link to the GUARDIAN, above.

When did you get yours? I just tried to get one and my check was returned in an envelope marked OUT OF BUSINESS 2/6/13

Perhaps a combination of Sam Colt and Smith and Wesson could stand guard at night?
