TT Security for Storage - Proven Industries

I was looking at getting a Proven Industries coupler lock. Do any of you have one? If so what model, I was thinking the 2516 would work with the ORV coupler. Any issues with it?

Thanks in advance

I have a 22FQS and purchased the Proven Industry lock 2516 and it fits fine and it can hold the chains.

It is a beefy lock. When you are removing it, don't open the coupler slide without having a hand on the underside or gravity takes over and if your feet are under that then ouch.


Proven runs two web sites - ProvenLocks.com and BestTrailerLock.com I bought from BestTrailerLock.com and paid $195. Same lock from ProvenLocks.com is $245 In tiny print on BestTrailerLock it says that they sell "overstock, refurbished, cosmetically damaged and exchanged products". Mine looked brand new.

Are TT thefts really that common to invest in something like that?
What happens when the thief removes the whole couple... Two bolts and bada bing badda boom........

Wow. That's an expensive lock. For the 2011 Tracer Executive travel trailer I owned several years ago, I simply used an extended shackle Master Lock in the "handle" on the coupler. I did keep the TT in a storage facility that had 24/7 security cameras. Never had a problem with someone trying to steal my TT.

I bought one of those because if I'm boondocking and take off for the day I really want to increase the odds that I'll have a trailer to return to. I don't really think things are that bad but $350 is pretty cheap IMHO. I'm also considering getting a wheel lock too but that takes up space and is a bit of a pain to put on. It seems to me that it is arguably more effective than a hitch lock.

The coupler on my trailer is welded to the frame, so no bolts to remove.

I agree that it seems either 1) over the top and unnecessary or 2) just enough to have a bad actor move on to a different target. Trailers do get stolen, but I don't know how common an event it is.

I'm not concerned about trailer theft in storage, but if I was boondocking I would like to be able to leave with fewer worries. $200 is a lot for a lock, but a drop in the ocean compared to the cost of the trailer and contents.

And think about the impact and the HASSLE of having your trailer stolen. I had a car stolen once right out from under my apartment. Not a good experience and a hassle dealing with police and insurance. I got the car back, damaged, and from then on used a steering wheel lock on it.

I own a 2516. I find it easy to use. I agree that this is insurance, but I felt it was worthwhile.

I do a lot of boondocking also where we may be away from the trailer all day. Lock takes a few minutes to install/ remove. May just deter the snatch and grab thief who will go on and try another unit without lock.

If you have the right tools and the time, nothing will stop a determined criminal.

Great lock, peace of mind when leaving it when boondocking is worth the price IMHO.

We do mostly boondocking at campgrounds and do not worry too much during the busy season. However, when we camp at empty campgrounds or way off the roads, I do lock my trailer up. I bought an AMPlock which is built very well and pickers cannot easily get it off.
BTW, I have heard of trailers getting stolen, so to me its worth the money and piece of mind that I will still have a trailer there when I get back to it at the end of the day.
