New lock secures trailers hitched and unhitched

Trailer accessory manufacturer Purple Line has launched a new high-security hitch lock which secures Australian 50 mm ball hitches both when hitched and unhitched.

The Saracen Ultra anti-theft hitch lock offers heavy-duty protection for boats that spend all day hitched to the tow vehicle at a ramp, and all winter unhitched at home.

Made from high strength composite metals, it has an anti-pick 7-pin cylinder lock with tubular, anti-copy key.

Saracen Ultra is also ideal for tradies’ work trailers which can sit for hours on site and at home, often with thousands of dollars’ worth of tools on board.

But it is really for any trailer with a 50mm ball hitch – caravans and camper trailers, horse floats, box trailers and even car and motorcycle trailers.

Saracen Ultra joins the Purple Line range of anti-theft products including the regular Saracen for unhitched trailers and super-tough Nemesis wheel clamp, all made of high-strength steel to resist cutting, picking, drilling and gas freezing.

Purple Line anti-theft products are available online at and at leading caravan accessory outlets and selected marine equipment retailers nationally. RRP for Saracen Ultra is $149 (Saracen $89, Nemesis $249).
