Wheel Chock Locked UpOur trailer has been on loan to a friend for the holidays; he needed it to be an additional bedroom for out-of-town family members visiting for the Christmas Holiday. Today, he returned it to its place across the road where I and The Better Half secured it for storage until such time as we sell it or trade it in.

We put the wheel covers on and installed the wheel chock that prevents the trailer from rolling. As a precaution to discourage would-be thieves from removing the chock, we locked it up with a cable padlock.

We had the lock on hand which is surplus from our having purchased firearms in Kalifornistan, where they make you buy the lock whether you need it or not. Just another minor infringement courtesy of the worst state in the Union for infringements of our second amendment and God-given rights for self-protection.

As a matter of fact, we have NEVER used those locks as they were intended. We have found them to be handy for other purposes, however, including the application above. These locks have also been used as a deterrent for propane bottle theft and to secure our flag to the flagpole out in the ‘Stan before we escaped.
