Video Transcript for Trailer Wheel Lock Review

Randy: Hey, guys. It's Randy here at Now, we get questions all the time about trailer security. People want to know what's the best way to get my trailer secured so I can prevent theft. What we're going to take a look at today is going to be an excellent solution for just about any trailer size, any trailer tire that we sell here at etrailer, this is going to work for it.Basically, this is going to be a wheel clamp. As you can see here, we've got nine holes that are separated on five eights of an inch.

That allows us to really fine tune the width that we want. Then we just hit the cylinder lock there, push it in, and that's going to lock it. The installation process is very quick and simple. So we'll open it, bring it around, bring it into the nearest hole that we can, and then just push it in to lock. At that point, put our rubber cap there on the lock and it's going to be secure.This is very, very similar to boots that they use in parking situations.

If anybody we're to try to take off with our trailer, it's going to bind up right here. You can see it has that lever action and it really won't go past that point. Now for reference, this is a 215/75R15. But like I said, I couldn't find a tire in our entire warehouse that this wouldn't work for.Now, here's an example of a really narrow tire. You can see this is a 5.3 wide tire.

Open it up, bring it around, lock it in its narrowest setting there. Now, while it is a little bit loose, as we tried to move this trailer forward, we've tested it a few times, and it locks in on this tire just like on the larger ones.Overall, this is going to give us an excellent security solution. Whether you've just bought a trailer, you want to get it secured. Maybe there's been some trailer thefts around your area and it's a growing concern for you. By adding this in, it's going to at least be an excellent deterrent.

Generally when somebody's trying to find a trailer to steal, or something that they want to take, they're going to take the easiest option. So by having this in place, maybe having a coupler lock up front that is also high vis, can really help them recognize that it's not really one they want to mess with. They can move onto something that's easier to get.It's going to give you a lot of peace of mind. So when you get to the storage area, when you get to the location in which your trailer is stored, or even if you keep it outside overnight, whether that's at a hotel, someplace like that, or even at home, that when you get there, it's going to be there. Not going to have to worry about going through all the issues with insurance and stuff like that.Now, as far as the construction goes, it's going to be relatively heavy duty. It's something that I wouldn't really be worried about somebody being able to easily bypass. Any trailer lock, it's no Fort Knox. There's always a way around it, but it's definitely going to make it much more difficult. I also like the coating on it. It's a real nice, solid, good feeling coating. There's no over-spray or anything like that. And then that high vis yellow, it'll help to identify it's on your trailer, so thieves can see it easily, but also it'll remind you, hey, we got that on there, let's take it off before we hit the road.As far as the customer reviews go, they're excellent. A lot of people have great things to say. Wish I would've had it sooner, it's easy to use, fits my tire really well, haven't had any issues after it's been installed. So it's got a lot of good things going for it. Each end of the arm has also been dipped as you can see it here with a nice rubber coating. Basically, that protects our rim surface. We don't have to worry about nicking and scratching it, causing corrosion down the road, but also it helps it to grip. So if the tire we're to move, that grips, pulls this in nicely, and keeps our trailer from rolling away. We've also got a handle here at the end. It's got a little bit of a texture to it, also a rubber material. It's going to help you get ahold of it, you're not going to have to worry about bare steel. The cylinder lock also has a nice rubber coating to it and it's going to have a cap on the end that's going to protect that and keep dirt, dust and debris from getting in there.The thing I like about a cylinder lock, this is much harder to bypass than the standard pad lock. It's something that generally you can't make your own copy of the key for it or anything like that. So by using that, just built in some nice extra security. Here's the cylinder type keys that are going to be included with it. As you see, you'll get a pair so you can keep one on your camper's key ring and one on your vehicle's key ring in case you happen to forget it or maybe you haul your trailer with a different vehicle.The biggest question we tend to get about this is, will it fit my tire And like I said earlier, I went through the entire warehouse, looked at 50, 60 different tires, and I could not find one that this wouldn't work on. I would definitely recommend this product. It gets great reviews. I like the way it works. It's nice and easy, kind of like we said. Definitely something that would be a great investment to protect your camper, protect your utility trailer, whatever your case might be.

etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock - 288-02020

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (243 Customer Reviews)

This anti-theft device provides your car, trailer, or ATV with visible, locking security. The adjustable claw clamps easily around your tire and wheel, and locks into place. Soft-coated arms won't scratch your rims. Includes 2 tubular keys.


After someone attempted to steal my business trailer but failed due to the hitch being locked, they attempted to roll it to the street but gave up as a neighbor spooked them. Found the etrailer wheel lock to be affordable, well designed, easy to operate, and effective. Also added a lug nut lock so the tire cannot be removed.
The website and service was good and the product was shipped within a few days.
I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an effective solution for those concerned about vehicle or trailer theft.

After using the Stallion Trailer Wheel Lock for over a year now, I am pleased to say it continues to work properly and is an effective solution to prevent trailer theft. A very economical and effective tool that I would recommend to anyone with a trailer exposed to the outside world.
Jerry F - 07/06/2018


This item works well. It appears to lock in a way that would take some time and effort with the proper force tools to get it off the trailer wheel. As with all locks, this is simply a deterrent, but does offer something else for the thieves to get past.

I used the wheel lock on a cross country trip to help secure our trailer at every overnight hotelmotel stop. It worked well as we had no theft issues. The lock itself has remained in good condition and continues to work just fine.
Robert - 12/20/2021


Trailer Wheel Lock is Durable and Heavy. Excellent product


Ordered this product along with a hitch lock. Both arrived timely and are exactly what we ordered. Prior to ordering, I was chatting with a rep as I was unsure of what to order. He was great and was patient with all of my questions. This is one a few orders from etrailer and have been very happy with what we ordered. The tow hitch and the wireing harnesh also arrived timely and was easy to install. We also ordered a manual roof vent and am happy with what was received. At this point we don't have our trailer but we are on a way to being prepared.
Note: Found the website to be very easy to use and customer service to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable.


Little disappointed that it will not fit the older drum brake systems with a backing plate. The baking plate interrupts the function of the claw so it will not insert.
Other then that seems like a good product.


I purchased this wheel lock for a small cargo trailer I pull behind my small motorhome. It allows me to securely leave my trailer at my campsite while I travel around. It works well and I'm happy with my purchase.

Because of covid I havent travelled much. However it still works well.
Gary M - 10/26/2021


Simple and effective security of trailer while traveling with motorcycle trailer on vacation


Always Fast shipping with excellent service. Solid product that I put 1 on each boat and utility trailer


For the price, I believe it is a great theft deterrent, I use the wheel lock with a tongue lock with the hopes of slowing down a determined thief. I believe it would deter a casual thief by removing the easy opportunity from the equation. I was using a 20 foot long steel cable wrapped around the tires, axles and parking lot structure when leaving the trailer unhitched in condo parking lots during bike weeks or campsites when camping.


Lock was easy to use..took seconds to install on the trailer wheels. Tested and the wheels do not budge.. Highly recommended for personal and light commercial use.


This trailer wheel lock works great and is all your ad said it would be. I purchased two of them. One for my son and one for me.

Devices are working as advertisedl Very satisfied with them.
Michael M - 09/17/2021


Not only does trailer provide excellent products at excellent prices, their customer service is top notch. We were having problems with UPS finding our home, called and spoke to Rodney and he was extremely kind and helpful. We buy a lot from etrailer because they are awesome


Very good product! Recommended by our insurance company to receive additional rate discounts. We primarily used a ball hitch lock plus a chain through a tie-down, but this acts as another excellent visual deterrent we won't drive off with! Fast delivery and free shipping, along with quality products keeps me coming back!!!


Some of the best service I have received in a long time. Product came about 4 days early.I've always had excellent service from etrailer.


Unfortunetly, yes, our trailer was stolen. We had the wheel lock on, and an inexpensive hitch lock. They used bolt cutters on the hitch lock, backed up, hitched the trailer up and took off with the wheel lock still on. The wheel lock broke apart into pieces as they drove off. We know have a much beefier ($250)hitch lock. We pretty much gave up on the wheel lock.


Excellent product. I feel real secure locking my trailer and atv


Will only work on smaller rims. It does not fit well on my trailer rims which are 15".

To see if this fits your tires you will have to measure the width of your tire at the side view. This lock fits between 6 and 3 quarter inch to 10.5 inch wide tires.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 08/24/2021


It seems very secure, based on my short acquaintance with it.


Looks like it shoulld work good!


This lock is easy to use and appears that it would be difficult to destroy when in place on the wheel. Four stars only because I've never had it tested.


Was all there, packaged well great to find parts like this


very nice fits the trailer wheels as pr omised

Louis - 08/23/2021


Great wheel lock and easy to install, anything that can be done to slow a thief down is a good thing, I use cables too but this adds to the security of my trailer


Works as advertised. Easy on and off. It’s hard to conclude any causal relationship between the use of this product and the absence of theft. My trailer is still here. Could be just luck or because of this lock. Coincidence or cause and effect? I don’t know but I’m satisfied. One side benefit is that it also acts as a secondary wheel chock for added security when parked on a slope. It should not be used instead of a wheel chock, but in addition to one. My trailer is parked on a hill with two wheel chocks and this wheel lock. The trailer hasn’t moved. I would recommend this product.


No package delivered to me.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

    Golf carts generally have wide tires much like some ATVs. The Stallion wheel lock # 288-02020 is designed to fit tires that are 6-3/4" to 10-1/2" wide. Provided that your cart tires are within that range you can use this lock. What is the tire size on your golf cart?

  • Will the etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock Work On a Dually Axle Trailer
    It sounds like you are referring to a dually setup rather than a tandem axle setup. If that is the case then you should have no issues at all with the etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock part # 288-02020. The arms gets removed for installation so you can pivot the other between the two tires and then make the final adjustments.

  • Does etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock # 288-02020 Prevent Wheel from Getting Removed
    The etrailer Trailer Wheel Lock # 288-02020 that you referenced is designed to prevent a trailer from rolling. Now if someone had access to a different wheel they could put on the trailer instead of the one that the # 288-02020 was attached to yes they could take the trailer. But that would require them to have access to the correct size wheel and tire with correct bolt pattern and lug nut tools etc so that would be a pretty unique opportunity for a thief.

  • Trailer Lock Recommendation for Gooseneck Trailer with Atwood Coupler
    Since the Atwood AMPlock gooseneck coupler locks are no longer around your best option for a coupler lock will be a wheel lock to lock the trailer like the wheel lock part # 288-02020. This locks the trailer just as effectively as a coupler lock but is universal enough to fit basically any trailer out there or vehicle. It's the best solution for gooseneck trailers like yours where there isn't a coupler lock that fits the coupler.

  • Will the Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock # WI490 Fit the Tire on a 2010 Mazda CX7
    The Wheel Club - Tire and Wheel Lock # WI490 will fit 13" - 16" wheels that have tires that are up to 28" in diameter and 9" in width. From the research that I did it looks like you might have 17" wheels on your 2010 Maxda CX-7 which means that the Tire and Wheel Lock would not be compatible. If you let me know what the size the tire on your CX-7 is, it will be found on the sidewall and look like 225/75-15, then I can confirm whether it fits or not. If you do have 17" tires then you could...

  • Wheel Lock for Trailer With Full Size Hubcaps

It will work so long as your wheels are between 13" and 16" and tires that are up to 28" in diameter and 9" wide. I have attached a link to a short video for you so you can see exactly how this lock works.

  • Could Bolt On Coupler # CTA-280 Be Unbolted and Stolen
    There isn't a locking solution for the bolt on couplers like the Trailer Coupler # CTA-280 that you referenced but someone would have to have the needed tools and the correct coupler on hand to then reinstall on the trailer so that they could drive off with it. That's not a totally impossible scenario but pretty unlikely. You might be interested in a wheel lock like the # 288-02020 as well as this would lock the trailer regardless of the coupler style.

  • Locking Coupler Solution for Trailer with Anderson Ultimate Hitch Receiver Adapter
    There isn't a lock mechanism for the coupler portion of the Andersen Ultimate adapters like you found out when you contacted them. This is due to there not being a great way to lock the mechanism and the uniqueness of the system means the likelihood of a thief having the same setup on their truck is pretty unlikely. In situations like this a wheel lock like the part # 288-02020 is your best option.

    It looks like you have the Bulldog Zinc Top Wind A-Frame Jack - 5,000 lbs # BD1750290301. If your old jack had a higher capacity and you are exceeding the capacity of 5,000 lbs it could be more difficult to use/should not be used since it is not designed for more weight. Outside of that, the only good explanation is that this is a different design/different jack than your old one so it is more difficult to use by comparison.
