    Yeah it looks like you could weld a piece of flat steel on its edge but sticking up between the two fins of the latch, then drill a hole through all 3 parts for your padlock.

    You could do like this guy did. I would opt for welding a flat plate and drilling all three for a pin like Art suggested though.

    Not to hijack the thread but I once saw a jetski trailer (loaded) tied to the 3/16" trunk latch on a car with the safety chains. I made sure to get WAY in front after I spied them at a stop light.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure I bought mine at Walmart ... back in the fishing/boating dept. (<$10) but I'd say most any place that carries much in the way of hitches & such would have a few on hand.

    I had same concerns when I got my champion as it has the same hitch as yours so instead of drilling any holes I went and got these SPECIAL ZIP STRIPS THAT HAVE A RELEASE LEVER, put two of then together and tighten around the entire tongue and latch assemble after boat is connected to hitch and ready to tow . then all you have to do is remove zip strip after you get boat launched and you want to store trailer then when your ready to tow again just hook up the trailer reattach the zip strips put boat on and go . PM me your cell #and I will text pics of zip strips



    keep your lines tight as you never know
