 I'd like to find some way to protect my padlock on my sundowner's rear tack.  Has anyone found something to protect the padlock from bolt cutters?  I found this thing, and was hoping that someone might have tried it.

Buy a shrouded lock that's tamper proof.
I will look for a link.  They are easily found on most hardwre stores just know what you are looking for!

I've seen those, but worried that they wouldn't "fit" on the sundowner trailer latch.  Have you successfully used one on a similar type of latch?

Many of our customers with cargo trailers use what we call a "hockey puck" round hardened steel that fits over the hasp and denies access.  It is made by Master.  However, on a negative side, we have had some of th ose customers come in to get repairs made because someone used a pry bar or similar something to pry the latch off the trailer.  Just can't keep some people honest.

Point blank, if they want in they will get in.  If you make it really hard they might move along to the next trailer but they might also destroy your trailer while they are getting into the back tack area.  What's the saying, the better the lock the better the score?  Just know that nothing is 100% and I've even known people that tied dogs to their trailers and still had stuff stolen.

This is what I have been using for several of the same reasons given above and have had no problem, I also think this is what Mrs Kay is speaking of.=====

This is a good one, but not the one I referenced.  It too is a Master brand lock, #6270 , but is a solid circle with an opening in the back that goes over the hasp and locks.  It truly looks like a hockey puck.  It would not work just anywhere, only with the hasp on a barlock.

There are two other hasp locks that we sell, Fastway # DT-39002, a hockey puck style that I suspect is made by Cequent, and a really fancy one made by Blaylock, #DL80, which not only covers the hasp but has a pushbutton pad and a key.  

The Master 6270 is the one that we sell the most despite the fact that the Fastway is much less expensive.

Thanks for the awesome suggestions!!  Sadly, I think the blaylock is the only one that opens wide enough for my latch.  I will remeasure, but I think that the Masterlock and Fastway are just a wee bit too narrow for my latch.
