    I made a lock for my plow after my friend had his plow stolen from his driveway. A lot of people have been asking me to make them a lock. Just seeing if there was any interest on here. They lock the pins from moving so you can not hook up to a truck.

    Looks like a receiver hitch lock.

    It is. I made the metal bracket that the lock goes through

    Great idea! I have plow only trucks, so they almost never come off. I run a big ass lock bolt instead of pins at the truck side mount. Takes a powerful impact to remove. If they can do that, then that is what insurance is for.

    That's what I figured with this lock. If they can cut the 5/8 receiver lock then they want it bad enough. At least I slowed them down.

    I remember my friend lost the key to his reciver lock and it took about 15min to cut through with a cutoff wheel.

    Also if anyone one wants one of these let me know. I built about a dozen. They cost about $30 to make and take me a hour so we can figure something out.
