Unhappy Trailer cable locks didn't work

I had the lock on the front 2 axles thru the holes in the rim, I forgot I had it on, Ground was a wet gravel lot,it rolled about 2 foot and it didn't slide the tire, even in the gravel, it broke ,pulled out the end and also ripped all my break line off both axles

Cables are a joke, easily defeated. Square chain will throw the uninformed for a loop.

Sorry bout the brake lines

Best protection is no one knowing where it is, I lost the key to a master lock and chain I had. Went to Home Depot, $20 24" bolt cutters, I couldn't believe how easy it was cut.

Most of those things just keep the honest person honest. If a true thief wants it usually they get it.

Look on the bright side, at least you didn't ruin a rim.

My buddy has done it twice on his 4 wheeler trailer and both times managed to take out the rear hub seal. He didn't even realize it when the cable broke the first time.
