I would discourage the one you posted. Really easy to pry off. This is the one I got. https://www.megahitchlock.com/ their promo videos show how its superior, after I got my last boat stolen I went with this one.

I use this on my Dorsey trailer:

It's not much but I guess it's better than nothing. I also use it when I tow instead of using the little pin that is attached to the trailer for keeping the latch from opening.

Their demo video is pretty funny. When they take the sawzall to their unit, they try to cut the bolt rather than just making a V from each side (from the coupler) to the furthest hole. That thing would cut off faster than the 6 minutes it took them to sawzall the other one off.

That being said, anything can be compromised. If I lived somewhere that things like that got stolen I'd probably use a wheel boot or chain the rims together on one side - or stop leaving it sitting outside where it could be stolen.

Edit: looking at it closer you wouldn't even need a V cut - just a straight cut about 1/2" behind the front of the thing.

The problem with all of those that go over the coupler...that model of coupler only attaches to the actual trailer with a couple of pins. If I was too worried about it I agree with the jeep - better find some way to lock the wheel.
