Our list of hitch locks includes options that provide security while your trailer is hooked up to your vehicle as well as models that fit over the coupler on your trailer’s tongue, preventing anyone from towing away your stuff while it’s sitting unhitched in your driveway. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best trailer hitch lock on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 06, 2018:

Discovered that the Blaylock TL-33 needs to be combined with an additional lock, but reports of its durability and effectiveness make it deserving of a spot on the list. Noted that some items, like the Trimax UMax25, Master Lock 389DAT and MegaHitch Vault Pro, are designed in bright colors to potentially deter theft based on visibility.
