I have four expensive trailers, so I purchased two of these in January and two more in February. I had all four keyed alike. Now I only need to carry one key to unlock any of the four wheel locks. That is so convenient! I'm very impressed with the quality and how easy they are to use. They only take seconds to install or remove. (Unless you're a thief, then just "Fuhgeddaboudit")

After a year, Im still extremely impressed. I havent had any problems and all my trailers are safe and sound! I am still giving a rating of five stars ***** !


Trailer Wheel Lock

this wheel lock. The construction of this product is made from inexpensive steel that can be cut off in matter of minutes using a standard battery operated reciprocating saw. We purchased this product and then our trailer was stolen 3 days later. The culprit DID NOT have to worry about a lock because he simply just cut off the one arm of the unit. We lost a $10,000 trailer in a matter of minutes. Save your money, don't shop on this site for trailer locks. Rather, call an insurance broker, get insurance and then park it in a gated storage lot. I really wish I would have. See images attached.


I'm using this on a utility trailer but can find many more uses for it. Having the ability to use it on so many different wheel/tire sizes in one package is a major plus. Built tough to with stand many years of use. I originally had my hitch locked with a padlock, but still had concerns of theft. With the Magnum wheel lock, those concerns are now gone.


Really am pleased with this item. Easy to install, the forks sit snug to wheel. I pulled on trailer after installing. I feel a thief will move on to a easier target. Thanks.


Just received Lock'em wheel lock and immediately put on boat trailer. I have had theft on my boat several times and was told by cops a lot of trailers are stolen here in Crimellas County Florida while out fishing. Would hate to come back to boat ramp only to find truck sitting with no trailer. Hopefully this will make them move on to the next one. Already used tongue lock but apparently those can easily be busted off with hammer. Easy to put on, takes seconds. Worth the time.


Easy to install, although a bit heavy to store but worth it because of the security it provides.


easy to install. fast shipping. Folks tried to steal my trailer last week with my brand new Cub Cadet lawn tractor locked to the side of the trailer.

Hope this does the trick.


Just as described; ordered 2 (keyed alike). This makes me feel much more secure about having my trailer stored and not seeing it everyday to verify it’s security.


Etrailer always has good reviews, good customer service, and great prices. Time will tell if the RA-25 is effective in preventing theft. It is really easy to attach - once its unlocked, you can remove the key and just clamp the 2 halves around the tire - done! I have a medium size atv trailer with 13" wheels and it fits good - the tips of the arms just touch the rim inside and out - there is no way its coming off. It is nice and flat making it easy to store when not in use. The keys and locking mechanism seem well made and work smoothly. Yes, I got locking lug nuts too, so its not easy to remove the wheel.

Matt N.


I still have my trailer so I guess the locks worked!! Seriouslythough, Im quite happy with both items, especially the rackem wheellock - it is so easy to use. It literally takes 5 seconds to attach orremove. Im very happy I bought it.


All the information I've read about the RA-25 is true. Very easy operation and the level of security is excellent.


Product easy to install. Peace of mind. No one tried to leave with my trailer so far


Thank you
Great customer service


This wheel lock is reasonably priced, very well built and easy to install.
I also added a locking lug nut to the same tire that has the wheel lock, to eliminate any chance of a potential thief just removing and replacing the tire. I'm confident that my expensive enclosed cargo trailer is now extremely secure with this wheel lock and locking lug nut combination.

Scott B.


Working Great! All my trailers are safe and sound.


This wheel lock is just what I needed for storing a trailer. It is heavy duty and easy to install or remove when needed. It adjusts to fit the wheel and locks down with the turn of the key. Nothing can totally prevent theft, but a thief will have to work pretty hard to get my trailer with this wheel lock and the other anti-theft equipment that I use. Customer service at etrailer has always been outstanding and the shipping is always fast.



I use this wheel lock on a trailer that I store in Florida. It has been exposed to the sun and salt air for a year and yet it still looks and functions as if brand new. I couldnt be happier with this purchase.


Great fit! Quick and easy to attach. Provides peace of mind while camper is not is use.

Al D.


We sold our pop-up camper recently, but kept the Rackem Lock! I didnt wantto part with it!


This is a good lighter weight wheel lock. The large side just fits my trailer wheel, so I suspect it is designed more for smaller trailers. It is not heavy duty and I suspect someone could still drive off with the trailer and the lock would snap off, but it is high visibility yellow and will keep the semi-honest honest.


Oh goodness, what a great design in the trailer wheel lock! We have a warmblood three horse trailer - bigger wheels - and this is just perfect. Keeping our investment safe!

Shipping was quick and easy too.

Thank you!



Excellent purchase! We feel our trailer is secure and the wheel lock if very easy in install and remove!! Yihaw!


These wheel locks have made me feel better about leaving my trailer parked. The sun has faded the yellow over time and I did have a little trouble unlocking one but that was due to weather and rain. With a little WD-40 and a minute or two it works fine. So that is a tip...keep a little WD-40 or equivalent on hand or lubricate the mechanism and lock from time to time and all should be good.

Bradley D.


Just fine. I keep them in the trailer tool box and use them when away from home. They still give a little extra peace of mind.


So Far so good, the customer service is great
I have check the product looking good so far
Thank you


Even though the product is a good idea, it doesn't quite fit in either setting. I haven't put it to a test because I don't want to damage my tire, but I think it can be pried off with the slack needed to fit on. Suggest some finer adjustment settings to allow it to snug up tightly. I doubled up and have the tongue lock too, and my trailer still sits where it was parked a year ago on my secluded lot, but then again, nothing else was stolen either, so better safe than sorry is the only thing to say about that.

If a thief is determined enough, just about any lock can be defeated. The idea is to provide deterrence, so hopefully the thief moves on to an easier target. Having a lock on the coupler as you do also adds another layer of deterrence.


Easy on easy off!!!





Super easy to use, works great on my tr ailer.


I have 6 of these, which I use on commercial equipment trailers & a small tractor.
They are alright...on several different types of wheels, they do not stay secure within the spokes, which means that they do not catch against the fender or stop the wheel from rolling...the wheel can roll with this lock in place, simply dragging the lock along the ground.
We had an 4WD atv stolen with this lock installed.
Thief Hot-wired it, put it in 4WD & drove off. Tire went flat, but because the wheel can spin with the lock in place, he just kept driving. We followed the drag mark about 3/4 of a mile to a paved road, where (presumably) the atv was loaded on a truck.
Atv was later recovered in a drug raid...original wheel was still on it, with a new tire installed.


Locks are meant to deter and not completely stop a thief and this wheel lock seems to be one of the best out there. It is simple to use and it shows exactly which side to use. Between this lock and others I'm sure a would be thief will be on to another trailer.

Robert B.


Considering they are locks and my trailerboat have not been stolen I would say they are holding up fine. No issues with them so after a year they are still doing well. Thank you for asking.


As a mentor of a high school robotics team, I purchased this lock for use on U-Haul rental trailers/trucks for out of town and in town events/competitions. It has been used extensively over the year and has never failed to function as advertised. Very easy to apply and remove. Would recommend to anyone looking for a way to provide an additional layer of security to help prevent theft of a trailer/vehicle but not the contents, obviously. When used for its intended purpose it should deter the average thief. I posed the question to my students as a teaching moment and they responded with the two concerns I would have with this product. It can be defeated by carefully cutting through one of the arms using a grinder or sawzall. Granted, that would take some time and would be quite noisy, two things the average thief would like to avoid. The other method would be to jack up the vehicle, remove the wheel with the lock, and put on a spare. Again, time consuming and not something your average thief would want to attempt due to the time and effort involved. I would give this product five stars for its intended purpose, ease of use and price point.

  • Is the Lock Mechanism on the Lock-em Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25 Replaceable or Permanent
    The Rack-em Manufacturing Lock-em Magnum Wheel Lock, part # RA-25, uses a replaceable tubular lock mechanism. We offer the replacement lock assembly as part # RA25LOCK, which comes with two tubular keys. The replacement procedure is simple enough: two spring-loaded dowels (one on each side) are pressed inward to unlock the internal housing which then slides out to reveal the access point for removing the original lock. This internal assembly fits snugly so a screwdriver will help to loosen...

  • How to Find the Correct Replacement Keys for the Rack'em Magnum Wheel Lock Part # RA-25
    We do sell replacement keys for the Rack'em Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock part # RA-25 but in order to find the correct ones you would need to know your key number which is only found on the keys, not the lock. For example, the Replacement Key for Rack'em Magnum Wheel Lock part # RA25KEY20121 is a replacement for the 20121 keys. Therefore, if you no longer have the keys and did not write down the key numbers then the only option would be to drill the lock out and replace it with the Replacement...

  • Will Rackem Wheel Lock # RA-25 Fit Two Wheels At The Same Time On A Tandem Trailer
    I pulled a Rack'em Magnum Wheel Lock, part # RA-25 from our warehouse and tried it out on a couple of tandem trailers we have here. I tried to attach the lock to a tandem trailer with 14 inch tires on it. It is designed to really be used on one wheel at a time. The distance between the tires was almost 7 inches and the lock was unable to clamp to both wheels at the same time. I have attached a photo of the lock system that shows the width of the bar that separates the locking arms. Note...

  • Can the Ends of the Rackem Magnum Wheel Lock be Cut with Bolt Cutters
    I pulled the Rack em Magnum Wheel Lock, # RA-25, and found that it measured 1 inch x 7/8 of an inch at its narrowest point at the end of the arms. It would be difficult for a thief to use bolt cutters to cut through the arms of this wheel lock and if they did manage to do so, cutting near the ends of the arms will most likely not be enough to actually remove the lock from the wheel. They would have to cut through a thicker section to remove the lock. One thing to remember is that locks...

  • Will The Rackem Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25 Prevent Wheel From Turning
    It would be very hard for someone to move the trailer with the Rack'em Magnum Wheel Lock, part # RA-25, attached to your wheel. When the unit is locked the prongs will not move, but the prongs are designed to go through the wheel hole. The tire would have to drive over the lock unit each time the wheel rotated for the wheel to turn. With opportunity and time a determined thief will normally get the item they are after. Using the wheel lock will help deter theft and make your trailer harder...

  • Is There a Guarantee for the Rack'em Manufacturing Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25
    Can we guarantee that the Rack'em Manufacturing Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25 will prevent all trailer thefts? I wish we could but a determined thief with enough opportunity and dedication will normally get what they want. We've sold quite a few of these though and our customers do really like it. I wish it was possible to say how many thefts it actually has prevented, but so far we haven't had anyone come back and say it was defeated and the trailer was stolen.

  • Lock Recommendation for Gooseneck Trailer with Popup RV1 Coupler
    Not to further confuse you, but we actually have a total of 8 Blaylock gooseneck coupler locks. They are all designed to fit different styles of gooseneck couplers. I have a solution for you, but the RV1 Popup coupler you have is not one that any of them are designed to fit. Your best option would be a wheel lock like the Rack em Lock part # RA-25 as it will immobilize your trailer just like a coupler lock except doesn't matter what style of coupler you have.

  • Trailer Lock Recommendation for Trailer With Bulldog Coupler Attached to Tow Vehicle
    I have a solution that will work great for you, but there really isn't a great way to lock a Bulldog coupler to a hitch ball. What I would recommend you do is use a wheel lock like the part # RA-25 which will attach to a wheel whether or not it is hitched up to a ball mount.

  • Would Pulling Pin of Trailer Breakaway Kit Work as Anti-Theft Device
    If you pulled the pin of your breakaway kit the brakes would be held for as long as the battery of the trailer could provide the amperage to activate the brakes. It wouldn't be long enough at all to be an effective anti-theft device so that wouldn't be a great route for an anti theft solution. Instead I'd recommend a wheel lock like the Rack Em Magnum Wheel Lock part # RA-25 to keep the trailer from being moved.

  • Correct Placement of Rack 'Em Lock 'em Magnum Wheel Lock
    The Rack 'em Lock 'em Magnum wheel lock, part # RA-25, can be installed on the front or back of the tire. Moving the tire one direction will force the lock to the ground to hold it in place or moving it the other will force the lock against the vehicle it's installed on. I've linked a video demonstrating it. I do recommend installing the lock with the key hole towards the outside of the vehicle. It'll work either way but it makes getting to the key easier for you.

  • Can a Magnum Wheel Lock be Keyed Alike?
    Yes, you can purchase multiple Magnum Wheel Locks, # RA-25, with the same key number. It is easiest to purchase them at the same time and select the "Keyed Alike" option, which will ensure that they are the same number.

  • What are the Dimensions of the Rackem Lockem Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Rackem wheel lock # RA-25 to measure it for you. The overall length is 20-3/8 inches. The overall width is 11-1/16 inches, and the height is just under 3-3/4 inches. You can separate the 2 halves of this wheel lock. The overall length will still be 20-3/8 inches. The width of each half will be 8-1/2 inches.

  • Could Rack em Wheel Lock RA-25 Work on Side by Side Tire Size 25x8.00-12
    You'd only need to install one wheel lock on a trailer. If you really wanted to install more there's no reason you couldn't but typically only one is ever used. The part # RA-25 will work for you but it'll fit better on the smaller tire size.

  • Will Rack'em Manufacturing Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock # RA-25 Work on Trailer with Brakes
    I spoke with my contact at Rack'em and for the best protection you will want to clamp the Lock'em Magnum Wheel Lock, # RA-25, together as close as possible. Since your trailer has a limited amount of clearance between the brakes and your rims you will just want to position the one side of the clamp through the rim and on the other side slide the clamp as close as possible to the rim/brake. Installing it in this way will still give you a good amount of theft protection.

    The Fulton Trailer Keeper Wheel Lock for Wheels up to 15" FTK1000100 was discontinued a number of years ago and while I do have a way for you to continue to have a lock on your trailer wheel, there aren't any replacement parts left for this Fulton lock so we need to look at a new lock system.

  • Can or Should a Breakaway System be Used to Prevent Trailer Theft
    To activate a breakaway system such as # 20099 you would just pull the pin out of the switch. With the pin removed the metal contacts inside can touch completing the circuit and supply 12 volt power from the breakaway battery to the trailer brakes. It will not release the brakes until the pin is reinserted or the battery dies. I do not recommend this as a method of theft prevention or to keep the trailer from rolling. What I do recommend is a lock such as # RA-25. The trailer wheel cannot...
