Wheel clamps/boat security

Any recommendations for security/wheel clamps for the boat trailer?

I have been trolling around the assorted caravan/trailer sites and there is a bewildering amount of stuff out there. Some cheap and nasty and some very expensive but not necessarily high quality.

My trailer is twin axle with steel wheel rims. There is already a lock on the tow hitch but my current wheel clamp is badly corroded and needs replaced.

I have no problem spending the money on a good clamp, just don't want to be wasting it

Cheers

Why not just stand it on axel stands and remove the 4 wheels?

I always do that during the winter but wanted something faster (and just as secure) during the summer months.
It's not always so convient to jack her up and remove the wheels after each time I take her out.

My insurance stipulates chained to an immovable object. A hole in the floor concreted in chain and a padlock ticks that box

There are plenty of used ones on eBay, this is worth watching and the postage costs is reasonable
