All the years of fishing and putting tongue locks on, i never thought to lock ball on until i ran in to the situation. Made sense if they cant unhook the trailer because of lock.WELL JUST UNSCEW THE BALL.

When I saw this item on Bass Pro Shops website, I thought this really made a lot of sense. You lock your boat trailer tongue couper to the trailer ball, and you lock your removable hitch receiver to the hitch frame, but you never lock your trailer ball to your receiver. So someone could just wrench off the nut holding your ball on, lift the ball and tongue out and drop the whole thing on another vehicle and goodbye boat!
It just makes sense to lock the ball on too.

I had the same problem as Lumberjack -- it was not advertised that this is only a Class II or lower ball -- I need Class IV as many boaters need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lumberjack Good Product, but beware....
The quality of this product is excellent and I would recommend it to friends. However, BPS doesn't tell you that it's only got a 3/4 inch shank. Thats fine for small Class I and II trailer hitches.
But, it won't work for Class III and IV hitches. Most boats and trailers are pulled with Class III and IV hitches and they require a ball with at least a 1 inch shank.
Bass Pro needs to let customers know of this important little detail. It would have saved me a trip to the post office to return it. Also, I wish BPS would carry this product with a 1 inch shank.
