Is this the yellow one from Reese?

Disclaimer: Lack of proper product and/or parts names in following feedback.
On mine it's a tight fit but works. The slider thing needs to be in the open position while placing the U-shape piece on the cupler and inserting the yellow piece with the ball shape thing. Once I lock it in place the slider is moved down to close position.

There is some adjusting the U-shape piece for it to fit on the coupler. I have trouble reading which side of the coupler gets the grooves side or not.

How do i know, had it happen when i didn't check on our boys when they hooked up our 2nd trailer. Towed 180 miles on i80 in iowa and never knew it. Got home and started to unhook and just about fainted when i discovered it. From then on, i latched and padlocked it.
I guess you're right. Never thought of that! Oops! Oh well, no ones takin' it yet.
