Hitchlock for std hitch whilst travelling


Recommended Posts

My SIL is looking for a lock to put on his hitch to prevent anyone unhitching whilst he is parked up at a service station. Not a caravan but a motorbike trailer. I've looked on eBay but most hitch locks are to put on a trailer when it is not on the vehicle. We need one for whilst it in the vehicle.

Suggestions and/or links would be most appreciated.

Our Milenco hitch lock can be used while hitched up but not while towing. One of the Alko locks can even be used while towing!

The Alko 3000 series can be used while towing or parked.

What type of trailer is it ?

Our Al-Ko hitchlock can be attached and locked when towing.

Not suggesting you buy this one, probably much cheaper elsewhere.

Al-Ko hitchlock on Amazon.

Land Rover on SORN so not towing anything for a while

It's not an Alko but a Knott which is a German oneIMG-20200515-WA0008.thumb.jpg.abcecba2231b271763b94d6b2dc1537f.jpg

On our old allotment trailer which had a similar hitch we used to put a padlock with a very deep ‘u’ through the lock behind the sliding pin once it was engaged on the towbar. When parked you just had to trigger the hitch into the locked position.

This hitch lock is made for Knott but not cheap at £113.95 you can lock it to your car and by placing the ball into the receptor and place the lock on for when the trailer is stored away.

A cheaper alternative could be to use one of these.   Simply pass it round the tow bar or breakaway cable ring and the trailer A-frame.

I use one when I leave my electric bike parked.   The cable goes round a lamp post and the bike frame. The digital key is by bank card PIN

As he is an engineer with all the equipment, we have decided on a heavy U bolt to go over or through the hitch handle dropping down under the hitch where a plate with a padlock will prevent the handle ever being lifted. Thanks all.
