    lock your ski to the trailer

    not sure if any of you do this, so ill throw this out there..

    i use a bicycle chain and lock to secure my ski to the trailer.

    I run the chain through my intake grate and then onto the axle of my trailer.


    if you want to tow it, remove the chain around the axle, and secure it to one of the bunks.

    i also padlock the trailer hitch to my car, so the trailer cant be removed from my car.

    i use an electronic bicycle alarm lock to secure my ski to the dock. if anyone tampers with it, the siren goes off.

    CRIME.. south africa has the highest crime rate in the world.

    they will literally steal your trailer from your car whilst you are stopped getting gas.

    most of the insurance companies will not cover jetski's due to rampant theft, my Jetski is only covered whilst it is parked inside my garage. Not to mention they only payout like 30% of what its worth.

    Here are the locks:
