Yes, I know it seems we got our pithy phrase backwards in the title. What we mean by it is that after loading your trailer, you should lock the thing, geddit? We’ll be here all week folks; try the veal. It doesn’t matter what’s in the tow behind — boxes of tools, camping equipment, or a Hemi ‘Cuda — it all makes a tempting target for the criminal element. This goes for actual camping trailers, too. A retailer near your author’s hometown has to deal with loss prevention more often than anyone would care to admit. After all, in most cases, the theft is as simple as a hitch-up-and-go. In the same way The Club steering-wheel lock is used to simply provide a deterrent, rather than making your ride theft-proof, so do these hitch locks for trailers.

Inside Katie Price’s filthy mansion piled high with dirty clothes, clutter, and animal poo

Pictures show the extent of the mess as the former glamour girl struggled to keep on top of the chores indoors Katie, 40, piled clothes everywhere, even flinging crumpled garments on top of her Aga in the kitchen. Her washing room also looked to be out of hand as dirty clothes overflowed the laundry baskets and spread across the floor. As well as leaving horse poo all over her front drive, Katie also shared pictures of her two youngest kids, Bunny and Jett, cleaning out their rabbits by flinging their litter all over the floor. Katie’s mucky mansion was exposed on Through The Key Hole last year when host Keith Lemon filmed piles of rubbish lying around the house, a scum-encrusted swimming pool and horse poo all over the drive. As well as the water in the pool turning green with scum, the tennis courts had also gone back to nature as the playing surface was littered with wees and moss. Other pictures showed the back garden littered with broken toys, with old sofas, carpet and rubbish piled up outside. It was revealed earlier this week that she’s finally moved some of the junk from outside the house, but it looks like the inside still needs some TLC. There are clothes...
