It is also important to remember if your trailer is left attached to a vehicle but unattended it can be unhitched and transferred to another vehicle.
One example of this are boat trailers – often left for hours whilst the owners are enjoying our beautiful waterways.
Another example are trailers left with motor bikes or small earth moving equipment on board have previously been stolen in this manner.
Like all good security measures they are only successful if they are used so make sure you take the time to secure your trailer.
