Check out this link, it has a picture of a hitch lock. Also the explanation should clarify things.
"This new safety lock features a "ball" that fits into the coupler of your trailer. A heavy pin fastens the unit to your trailer and it's held in place by a padlock (not included). This combination will fit any trailer that uses a 2" - 2 5/16" ball. Better than simply using a lock through the cotter pin hole in the hitch, the Universal Hitch Lock effectively prevents someone slipping their hitch ball under your coupler and driving away. Easy to install and remove."
trekhaakbeveiliging is not quite as descriptive as ball hitch lock but I think it would be the best option.
