advice on wheel lock

Hi
Sorry another question. I'm trying to find a suitable lock for my trailer - the one i currently have enables the wheel to rotate so not ideal.
The problem is there are no holes in the rim to enable a clamp type one and the bearings savers are proud of the rim which prevents one of the cover type ones. Hopefully the picture explains better than my words!
Any advice gratefully received as ever.
Cheers
Neil

SAS clamps are available for different size wheels and are also insurance approved.

I've got bearing savers on both my trailers and they are the only clamps I could find that don't allow the wheel to be removed.

I have one of These
A milenco mega wheelclamp, bloody heavy, about 30 Kg
But if you are paranoid about theft, I have not found anything better.

Hi Neil

Don't mean to teach you to suck eggs, so please tell me to butt out if I am!

Ensure that when it's clamped on, you have it clamped to the metal rim of the wheel, on both sides. People often make the mistake of clamping it up against the tyre instead. This means that all you have to do is let a little pressure out of the tyre and you can pull the clamp off.

All the best.

Hi Ben
Not at all, you are right - after I took the photo I had another look at it and realised it wasn't seated properly over the wheel nut. It is now 'upside down' but feels more secure. Probably takes a bit of practice to get it seated properly.
Cheers
Neil

No sweat Neil. Also, make sure you keep the allen headed bolt and it's receiving pad well greased / copper slipped. They used to consist of a steel bolt and an aluminium pad. As you can imagine you can strip the threaded ally pad quite easily, if you're a heavy handed thug like me.

It does-mine took a few goes. Sometimes I have to rotate the trailer wheel.


I suspect it'd be rather easier to remove if upside down though. It's worth putting it on the other wheel if you can so it's the right way up.
