Spare tire lock
This lock was purchased to put on my horse trailer while parked at a boarding facility. Others parked there have had spare tires stolen. Some people have moved their tires to their tack rooms. This is not a option that I wanted to use. I was able to order the lock and receive it in a short amount of time. I also was able to attached it by my self with out much trouble. It could be built with a higher quality metal. For the price it was a good buy. So far the lock is doing its job and I still have my spare trailer tire.

Some Modifications Required
This is a great product, the reason i only gave it 3 stars is if your wheel stud is too long you either have to cut it down or do what I did. Drill the center hole out so the wheel stud extends thru the lock. Buyer beware you might have to modify this item, but a little modification to this $6.99 part will save you over $150.00 or more for a new spare.

works well, needs modification
Second one I bought. First one lasted about 6 years and eventually just wouldn't open. Pried it off with lug wrench.
On both of them I had to drill out the hole to accomodate a full-sized spare tire.
For the price, it should deter a potential thief long enough for them to possibly move on to another unprotected tire.
