Hi All,
I have a Boeing customer made trailer for my Hobie TI 2012.

The trailer itself is based on a converted jet ski trailer, and has 10 inch wheels.

Does anyone know of a wheel immobiliser that fits 10 inch wheels ?

I've tried Auto One, (Sydney, Australia) and other automotive parts shops,
and the full wheel clamp designs, and others, seem to be designed for
13 to 15 inch wheels, and are too big to make a snug fit on my 10 inch wheels.

Ideally, I'd like one of those designs that fits over the wheel itself, i.e. that stops
someone removing the wheel, OR driving the thing away.

(I've got a clamp for the trailer at the front, just want some extra security)

Thanks

Hi oceanmoves,
do your 10" wheels have holes or slotts in the rim or are they solid rims.

I use a heavy duty plastic coated steel security cable through the wheel, around the trailer chassis and up through the Mirage drive hole in my TI then a big padlock.
That way the TI is locked to the trailer and the trailer wheel to the chassis. Making it a bit harder to pinch.

That's a cool idea. I will think on that.

As for the wheel clamp option, I found this product, "Klamp It", that seems to come in
range of sizes, including for 10 inch wheels...
