Serious supply chain issues have delayed the Factory Shipment indefinately.

This is BRAHMA's WL001 wheel lock, the most popular selling unit, sized for trailers with 15 and 16 inch wheels.

This will also fit SOME 17" wheel/tire combinations, depending on tire size. Measure from ground up to top of tread (diameter) and width of tire at widest spot. If no more than 31" H and 9" W, the WL001 will fit.

Buyer's Guide

If unsure of what size lock you will need, tire sizing is shown on the sidewall of your tires, and expressed in a format similar to "ST205/65R15".  (Width in MM. / Height-to-Width Ratio / Wheel Diameter in inches.)  If you are not able to view your trailer's tires directly, the information is contained on the trailer manufacturer's specification sheets, manuals and/or website. 

Fitment Note - Please Read

While the majority of 15 & 16 inch tire/wheel combinations are supported, the WL001 does have a maximum width and height that it can be adjusted to.  Typically, the WL001 will fit up to 235 series tires. The WL001 will fit tires sized up to 9.25 inches wide (235 mm.), sidewall-to-sidewall and from a MINIMUM 24 inches in diameter to MAXIMUM 31 inches in diameter. (This can be measured simply from the ground to the top tread).Tires of lesser dimensions are supported by Brahma's WL002 for 13 & 14 inch wheels.

ALSO, please review the optional "Flat" Lug Nut Cover  page to see if this will be required for your installation.

Installation Instructions

How It Works

Brahma's locks are manufactured from high strength, heavy gauge steel which has been hardened in critical areas, such as the lock housing. Painted a vibrant orange, they are a strong visual deterrent. We recommend that the lock be installed on the trailer side most visible to passersby.

A properly installed Brahma Wheel Lock prevents the locked wheel from rotating in two ways; the flanges on the locks arms will dig into the road surface and the lug nut cover will bind up inside the rim, locking the wheel in place. Attempting to drag a trailer with a Brahma lock in place makes lots of noise!

The wheel's lug nuts are protected from tampering by the dish-style cover plate, which is secured in place by the lock's cross arm so that the locked wheel cannot be removed and/or replaced.

Brahma locks remain effective even if the tire has been deflated in an effort to remove the lock.  The steel bands within the tire make it rigid enough for the lock to stay in place and the weight shift caused by deflation causes the wheel dish to bind up inside the rim. Even with the tire deflated, the lock cannot be removed and will remain effective. 

Wheel locks should always be applied to a rear axle wheel of trailers with tandem axles. If affixed to a wheel on the front axle, thieves can raise the hitch until the front axle tires are off the ground and tow it away on just the rear axle wheels, rendering the lock ineffective.
