What’s the absolute best way to protect your trailer ?

This is probably the number 1 question we have been asked over the years!
What is the most secure, most effective way to make sure my trailer stays exactly where I leave it and no one steals it away ?


The short answer: Our PF-01 Ultimate Wheel Immobilizer. It’s the toughest, baddest immobilizer money can buy. Used in the toughest neighborhoods in the US and some of the highest risk areas on the planet. And when it comes to a wheel immobilizer, especially one as tough as our Ultimate, there really isn’t any quick and easy way to bypass them or get them off, remember they were intended to resist aggressive, determined attempts.
The long answer: While some options are clearly more secure than others, you should probably use a combination of different means to protect your trailer, such as a good quality trailer wheel lock, but also a hitch lock, and also some best practices. Park your trailer in a well-lit, high traffic area. It’s true that more people (and potential thieves) could notice your trailer, but it’s even more true that thieves prefer to work in poorly lit, isolated areas where they have a better chance to complete the theft undetected. You can also invest in some after the fact measures like GPS devices, but remember those are after the fact only.

    It really helped when you said that we could use different methods other than a wheel lock to ensure that the trailer won’t be robbed. We just need this information when we buy an enclosed trailer because we will be putting a lot of musical instruments there to deliver and donate to a charity. Thanks for the tips on how to keep it secured when we leave it parked outside our home. http://www.smithtrailers.com/AboutUs.aspx

      You’re very welcome! While wheel immobilizers remain the single best way to protect a trailer, the overall winning strategy always involve layering multiple measures. Good luck!
