Just pulled trigger and bought a 2011 Wakesetter VLX but have a question about trailer


Recommended Posts

Never seen a trailer coupler like the one on the 2011 Boatmate tandem. Instead of havign the clamp that you lift up and down to lock to tighten the coupler to the ball it is and has a little square that pops up and then pushes flat and clicks in when you fasten it to the hitch. The problem is (and I didn't spend a lot of time looking today) how do I lock it onto the vehicle while we have the boat in the lake without pulling the trailer off the hitch and using a generic coupler lock?

There is a small hole that has a pin going through it and I am wondering if there is a special skinny lock you use here? Anyone have this same trailer and know what I am talking about? Will post some pics tomorrow, if necessary.

You can see a picture of the type of trailer I am talking about if you look at the 5th picture under to modification section on this member's gallery - http://www.themalibucrew.com/forums/index.php?/garage/vehicle/72-malibu-wakesetter-lsv/page__tab__images

This is the coupler you have. (You'll want this link for future repairs).

I have the same and originally, used a long shank lock so that the shank passed through both holes on either side of the coupler.

That didn't look too sexy in the ramp parking lot so, I switched off to one of these. (5th one when reading from left to right, top to bottom).
