I believe only if you have the wedge plate for his model pin box (or yours will fit his). Mine only has an allen wrench set screw holding the capture plate to the pin.
Without the wedge, the hitch can come loose and rotate, slamming the hitch body forward and back on the rails even when pulling or stopping straight ahead.
I want to caution you about trying to defeat the rotating cam with a piece of steel (or anything else). If the hitch bangs against whatever you try to block the hitch head with, it can gall the hitch tubes or damage the sliding block. Either of these will be a VERY expensive repair and may well cause a hitch replacement.
