Indeed, however not all "insurance approved" locks offer this feature. So some people tend to be oblivious to the fact they are providing the thief with an easy solution

It was bolted to the trailer, was a rusty old thing but served its purpose. Guess ill have to take to chaining it to the trailer now.
What size is it?

And whilst the chances of it fitting are remote, I have a very good condition mini wheel that has been in my shed for ages which you are welcome to if it is any use.

We've had the winch handle taken in the past. Bloody annoying.

I can think of another good use for a winch handle,if we bow down to these scum bags we will not have boats left to go boating,plod are too busy chasing people dropping litter etc.
