Trailer Paddle Lock

A trailer paddle lock is required for securing the trailer doors. It is extremely important to secure the trailer items as there are multiple valuable items inside. Also, during travel, if a strong lock is not provided on the trailer door the items can fall out and be damaged. Therefore, having a paddle lock for trailers is very important.

Specification and usage of Trailer Paddle Lock

There are multiple designs and shapes of trailer paddle locks in the market. However, these are a few common ones that are widely used in the industry:

1.     Stainless Steel finish Paddle Lock for Trailers

Stainless steel is one of the most reliable and strong locks to use on trailers. Since stainless steel is not easily affected by weather or moisture it is a good choice for trailers operating in moist or rugged terrains. This lock has standard locking cylinders and mounts in 2-3/4” x 3-3/4” holes. This lock can fix up to 7/8” thick doors.

2. Paddle handle latch with keys

The strong paddle handle latch is ideal for replacing conventional latches. Extra safety features of the paddle lock include a key safety lever which allows the lock to be only disengaged from the inside. These paddle locks are made with stainless steel and offer great support to the trailer carriage.

3. Polished Chrome Trailer Paddle Locks

The polished chrome trailer paddle lock is a global link lock that can be easily installed on your trailers. These paddle locks let you secure the 5th wheel or travel trailer. The lock comes with 2 keys, a door edge plate, a strike plate, and other associated installation parts.  

4.     Steel Flush Door Lock

The steel flush door lock fits into a standard cut-out of a 3-3/8” x 4-5/8” hole. This lock is slightly larger than the other types of lock. It can be mounted with rivets or screws on the trailer doors. The lock can sustain doors of 1-1/16” thickness.
