I won't be able to store my boat in a garage (why are 20'X20' garages allowed in Texas?!) and I'm wondering what coupler locks y'all use? I've heard the Reese Towpower is very easy to break off. Any suggestions?

I use the locks that Lee above uses. Neighbor uses a steel pole in the ground with a hitch ball mounted on the top. Then uses the same lock to secure to a vehicle. He also locks his tow chains to the pole.

Looks good. Have never heard or seen that one. May be much more secure
Burt, remember, a lock is only intended to keep and honest man honest. A determined thief will find a way to break it I'm sure

I'd put one on the hitch and then open the swing tongue and put a lock through it. You can get wheel locks too. The more locks you use the less chance they mess with it.
