Never bothered before but am looking into one.
OldCoot when you look under the hitch isn't there a big nut that can be taken apart then the ball you have in there would fall out anyway.
Was thinking on a piece of 1/4 inch Plate and a ball bolted on then welded to plate. 1/4 inch plate to cover the nut on the inside of the hitch then just the regular hitch lock. Would like input on my idea I have most of the parts in the garage already just need a ball ,maybe a cable lock to wrap over the hitch.
