Using examples like a grinder and large bolt cutters is also a little extreme, they make locks that cannot be cut with bolt cutters.
I am not disagreeing with you that, if someone TRULY want to get in, and no ones around, they can and will, but some of those are extreme examples.
again, MOST pad locks a simple Harbor freight cheap op bolt cutter will slice right thru
MOST all enclosed trailers have THIN aluminum skin on them and many GLUED on to framing, framing is mostly aluminum on snowmobile trailers and at 12-16 inch spacing,
a hammer and screw driver will make a decent hole pretty fast if one wanted to!, and once they get a hole started simple tool can make things WAY bigger real fast
again, if anyone wanted in a trailer, its NOT hard to get in, GETTING larger things out might be a bigger problem, till they get a ramp door open
and MANY trailers have the hardware that HOLDS ramp doors on, on the outside, so simple tools like socket wrench or cordless impact gun, can remove the whole hinges off the doors?
again, the harder you make things, the more likely they will pass and target easier things to take
but there not mush required to get into a trailer when you DON"T care about the damage you do , doing so!

locks really work on honest people , crooks??
all comes down to how skilled they are and how bad they want in!

I think he is referring to the Cap on his Truck which has a similar lock as the trailer ..

You can purchase a key based on the number stamped on the tumbler..

I think you could kick yourself out of my EZ Hauler in less than a minute even if you were wearing flip flops.

Search "global link locks".
I was going to order an RV door lock and compartment lock so all my trlr & camper locks were keyed the same with just 1 extra key. You can order them to be keyed the same as an existing global key you already have.
I did see some locks that can be keyed same as a vehicle, but I didnt want that at the time.
