109170 - Full Stop Saracen Hitch Lock - £45.99

The advantage with the wheel clamp is that if you decide to fit bearing savers to your trailer in the future, you can expand the size of the wheelclamp to take this into account.

Check your insurance details first and then comply.
Unfortunately the plate type clamps leave the wheelnuts exposed if bearing savers sit further out than the tyre sidewall meaning the wheel can be removed with a spanner. The only one I could find that'd fit my trailer was an SAS clamp.

Nos, fit locking wheel nuts to stop someone from simply replacing the wheel.

I allso don;t think that SAS make the Bulldog clamp That's much better takes at least two minutes and needs 4*4

Alos keep you old padlock clamp and use that as well

Are the Western Locks better then, good value - look good though and thanks for the feedback. Won't be thanking you though for your comment about Portsmouth, ha : )

Hi Western is just a vendor I posted it too identify the difference between SAS and Bulldog. IMO Bulldog are heaps better than SAS.

I don't really know abou value from Western but it certainly gives you a price comparison.

Re pompey I worked there for seven years and got a lot of stick for living in a better place got some good buddies there though

Matt,

Looks like you have the same trailer as me. I've had trouble finding a hitchlock to fit. Is the one below the one you have. Not too keen on the price though. £96.

Its the TLB050 Bulldog Hitch Lock: Bradley couplings to 2600kg on this page http://www.trailerpartswarehouse.co....prices_81.html

The trailer I have is a R2B55H/RC with the following part numbers on the hitchlock:-

Bradley Double Lock.

94/20 000100 00

DC 24.84 KN B50X

Type Mk III Var A.

Cheers for any advice.

Nick R.
