BOLT CUTTER PROOF trailer coupler locks!

Made in America



in trailer security


The most expensive lock you can buy is one that doesn't protect your trailer.

  • Pictured here is a pile of almost $600 worth of trailer locks.  The average price of these locks was $50 - $75. All 11 locks were defeated easily and quietly with only bolt cutters or a crowbar in a combined time of just under 2 minutes!  That's only about 10 seconds per lock!  Do you see your lock?

 This is a 'Beast'! I got the lock on Saturday for my Anderson 5th Wheel Hitch. Holy Mackerel is it ever serious! I've had numerous locks or various makes & models over the years but I've never seen anything like yours. This is a lock on steroids! Incredibly made with a nice smooth coat of yellow paint. I am impressed. Any future locks I need in the future....well I know where its coming from....Nice work folks! Thank you! - Stephen

About Us


Our Story

 Just a few short months after starting our storm shelter business in Tulsa OK our gooseneck dump bed trailer with $40K worth of equipment on board was stolen from a secure construction yard on Easter Sunday morning 2014.  The thieves cut through 3 heavy chains on the entry gate and then 2 logger chains which were running through the frame of the trailer and fastened to concrete blocks which had been poured into the ground.  Heavy bolt cutters were used to defeat the chains and heavy duty locks. Thankfully insurance covered much of the loss, but the time to regroup, get a new trailer and equipment took a few weeks.  I told myself - "this can't happen again" and I spared no expense in creating a new lock system for my trailer that was BOLT CUTTER PROOF!


Construction Background

My personal career had been as a construction estimator and project manager.  Over some 30 years I had become familiar with the MasterLock style surround hasp and "puck" lock systems used on Mini Mobiles and temporary construction containers which we used to store our tools and Bobcats overnight.  I had never seen this system defeated and I chose to start with that locking system and reverse engineer a locking system for the latch and the set bolt of my new gooseneck trailer.  I never imagined how much attention I would get from other friends in the construction industry who began to request what they saw as the best gooseneck lock for their own trailers to include adapting the system to other bumper pull couplers, trailer locks and other types of gooseneck coupler trailer locks. .


March 2015

So after about a year of local sales to friends and the development of several more versions, we filed our patent and I constructed a small display which oddly resembled a black and yellow Charlie Brown Christmas tree and went to our first trade show.  It was the local Home and Garden show and to our pleasant surprise we were overwhelmed with sales and orders.  So here we are just a few years later and we are humbled and proud to be protecting thousands of trailers across all 50 states and Canada. We feel so encouraged to have witnessed a significant tragedy turn into such a blessing for our family. Thanks for considering Ft. Knox Locks as we believe our lock system is the best (and thanks to my wonderful wife of 35 plus years for coming up with such a great name:)!  We will be adding other trailer locks in the future - keep watch!
