Trailer Coupler/Hitch Information?

This is the coupler on the new-to-me trailer. Is any one familiar with this type of hitch. You pull the pin, raise the collar up, open the jaws, back the ball in, the jaws close around the ball and you close the collar and put the pin through.

Do you know how to lock it when I am unhooked? I have a standard coupler lock but I do not have it with me. I do not think it will fit this one. As you can see the pin locks. That is useful to keep the collar down and the hitch in place on the ball but not for security. A hammer would easily defeat that lock. Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry about the pictures. It was raining when I went out to take them so I snapped them quickly.

Thanks is advance for your help...
