    Burly chain and lock

    Can anyone suggest a burly chain and padlock that I can use to secure bikes to our trailer? We have a couple of Kuat Dirtbag mounts for the cargo tray on the front of our trailer and i'm tying to figure out the best way of locking them to the trailer frame. It seems like a heavy duty chain would do the trick, but i'm not sure what gauge, thickness etc. It doesn't need to have a cover on it as I have some cordura kicking around to make one. Also looking for suggestions on a lock to use on it.

    This is the one I use..nobody is cutting thru this unless they have a cutoff wheel with them. The lock alone weighs 3lb. It's super heavy duty.

    I use one of these:
    Beast #8018L — OnGuard Locks

    with a couple of these locks so I can put a lock on both ends if I can't make a loop.
    Boxer #8048 — OnGuard Locks

    If I end up buying a chain that costs more than the bikes it's protecting, it had better come with an armed guard who will also serve me tea and biscuits after the ride!

    I was thinking/planning/still am buying about 8 feet of the 8k chain, with cover (can be purchased without), and one of the monoblock locks listed at the bottom of the page. i found the product in a past thread at this forum. i'll store the chain in the vehicle, so weight isn't too much of a problem. the locks are a better price here than on amazon, if i remember correctly. nothing is foolproof. there are videos on specialists breaking all kinds of locks, but for grabbing a bite from a restaurant with view of the car, in daylight, in a carefully chosen place, it could help.

    still not sure if i want one really long length, or two shorter ones, for times i carry one or two bikes on the Kuat Transfer2.
