Trailer lock

I'm looking to buy a lock that goes on my trailer to lock out the pintle hitch hook up. Does anyone have one or a suggestion on what to get?

The problem I see with this (or any trailer with a hitch that can be unbolted) is that while it will slow down a thief, it wont really stop them. Ive seen this happen with goosenecks, people throw on a lock thinking that will stop theft, but thieves just unbolt the coupler, pop in a new one and drive off.

As even this pic shows, you can just unbolt the hitch and install a new one. It would only take 2 min, an impact with a couple common sockets and a vicegrip. (for the head of the bolt)

If your really worried I guess you could weld the nuts to the bolts or use hi strength locktite.

Yes that def is a way they could get around the lock but all I'm looking for is something to just keep people from being able to back up to it and take it. I was hoping someone used one of these or had some type of experience with one before I go and buy one.
