    I can open the Reese in a second , without cutting. But the lock looks good

    I have a friend that is working on a better trailer lock. It looks to be well engineered.

    They prefer ones they can get off quickly, though. I live in a very high theft area for boats (South Florida) and we stay pretty up-to-date with the various locking mechanisms and which ones generally get worked over. Sometimes you'll get an insane incident where they'll cut one of those boots off someone's boat trailer, but most often they're just cutting the normal-style locks. Since most boat trailers here have bolted on couplers, they'll unbolt the coupler and bolt a different one on, also. Even the GPS trackers have their own problems too, it was discovered that some brands will only give the coordinates to the police and the police aren't always interested in investigating the theft right then.

    The good rule is to have a lock that's harder to defeat than your neighbors' locks.

    Or have a boat/RV that no one wants to steal. [:D]
