Might want to choose a different brand coupler lock. I think Curt missed something when they made this fine product?

I occasionally watch the Locking Picking Lawyer videos. He has taught me me a few things.

  • There is no lock that can be opened by a key that can not be picked
  • The best you can hope for is to have a lock that is very difficult to defeat. A lock picker/thief's biggest enemy is TIME ! The longer it take to open or the louder the process, the more likely the thief will be caught.
  • Don't have extremely valuable items stored in a place that does not have eyes on it 24/7/365.



Last, good locks ARE EXPENSIVE ! There are no "good" locks available at your "average" store. The best lock cylinders come from Switzerland or Germany.

If you can't get it off by picking the lock, on a 1 7/8 and 2 inch couple, just undo the 3/4 inch nut underneath. More garbage.

The majority of coupler locks are easily defeated junk.
