Okay Trailer Owners, time to talk about something a little more serious. There is an upsetting and frustrating trend that has been growing.
I am calling it the “Stolen to Homemade Movement.”
It’s pretty much exactly how it sounds. It’s when someone steals a trailer and eliminates the identification number. They then register it at the Secretary of State, claiming it as a homemade trailer. Can you imagine going to hook up your trailer and realizing that it is just gone? Apparently all kinds- big and small trailers are up for grabs. Many people have lost not only trailers, but their valuables as well. Lawn equipment, ATVs, boats, cars and even horses!
Like I said, it is extremely frustrating that we even need to worry about this- protecting something that is rightfully ours- but we do. And so, this is where Trimax comes in. We carry several of their locks because we think they are the best when it comes to securing your trailer. Here are a few of our favorite products that you will find on our shelves.
Some of their most popular products are the Universal Unattended Coupler Locks. We have both models; the UMAX 100 and the UMAX 50. They are extremely durable and designed to fit all couplers. Easy to install and exceptionally difficult to break, customers have been very happy with the locks that Trimax has designed. Here is a short video that demonstrates the simple installation process.
Wheel Chock Locks
Another great product by Trimax is the Wheel Chock Lock. We carry the TCL75 model, and this product is one that everyone seems to love! Like the coupler locks, it is SO easy to use and it’s great for big and small trailers alike. It literally takes seconds to place on a wheel of your trailer when you park it. Here is short video about this lock, I think you’ll be impressed.
At Grandville Trailer you will also find several door locks made by Trimax. Like the other Trimax locks, they are hefty and durable. A tough cookie to crack. Not only do you need to protect your trailer, you most likely want to protect your possessions inside your trailer. If you haven’t placed a lock on your trailer door yet, or are looking for an upgrade, consider stopping by Grandville Trailer for a Trimax lock. Here are a few pictures of their top sellers.
One last awesome product by Trimax that we carry are their receiver locks. After a quick setup, these locks are easy to use, effective and will make you feel like you’re cracking the Da Vinci Code. Take a moment to watch one more video and see how these work on your trailer.
We have heard several stories from devastated customers who have had their big and small trailers stolen or broken into. Customers who wish they would have paid a small price to protect what was rightfully theirs. Your boats, toys, work equipment and belongings are important to you and no one should feel like they can take them. Honestly, I don’t like the fact that there is even a need for us to sell locks. But there is, and thankfully, Trimax has some great products. That is why we have chosen to offer their locks to our customers to provide them some security. If you haven’t placed any locks on your trailer yet, it’s time to think about doing so.
Often times, having a lock on your trailer just works as a visual deterrent. Let’s end the Stolen to Homemade Movement and hold on to what is rightfully ours. Stop by and get a lock for your trailer- before it’s too late!
At Grandville Trailer, We’re pullin’ for ya!
