Question What's your favorite wheel lock?

Trying to secure my new Trailorboat Boat Camper. I can't use Pegway chain as the wheel hubs are solid, and don't know if the clamp style would cover the cool retro Spyder lug nut covers. If you have a wheel lock that has kept your trailer safe, I'd love to hear your recommendations. Photo is upside down, clearly.
Thanks in advance,
Peta

My favorite wheel lock is the Brahma.

Brahma looks bombproof! Smallest wheel size it fits is 13' and mine is a 12', so I don't think it will work, but I did email the company to check. Thanks! Others will find this useful.

We put it on the front of tire if on a hill where we are downhill in front or on rear of tire if on a hill at the rear. Just don't lose the keys since you can't have them made anywhere. Not sure ours is this brand but it looks like it. Of course they can remove the tire and wheel and put another one on but that takes time and makes noise.

IF you're going to spend money, make certain the money spent is worth it.

Thanks!

Thanks Danny & Jann, hahaha Donna, and Good to know, Jon.

I have (very cool) retro hot rod spyder lug nut covers that stick out about 5", so I might be trying a couple of lug-covering wheel locks to see which will work. The wheel lock would save the lug covers from a quick snatch 'n grab, too. Bonus.

I have an actual Denver Boot, which I usually forget to take with me, so it's hasn't really been useful to me so far.

Mine looks like the one in this photo:

If you still have an RV then clearly it's the thought that counts

How much was the Denver Boot that you clearly just need to stash in your camper? 😝 When I go to their site, there are no prices to be found. Just an email address for ordering. Just curious.

And I haven't tripped over it in my garage!

Sorry, I wish I had a good answer for you. I bought mine at a flea market for $20.

Best option IMO

When I was researching wheel locks/boots last year I could never feel comfortable with the options on Amazon. Seemed like someone in the reviews had always found or been victim of a flaw of some sort in the product. I decided on this https://universalboot.com/product/al...l-wheel-clamp/ from Universal Boot in Canada. A little pricey but so far effective. The back side fits nicely between the wheel and brakes. Here it is on Midge:
