Herk..........you called the vender just before I did....he told me that he just sold the last one about two minutes befor my call....gess I should not have had breakfast first.......... Let me know what you think of the latch. I think that I am going to weld it on instead of bolting.

I can drill a hole. I have NO idea how to weld.
Will welding do anything to the steel of the hitch head?

(Oh, grass don't grow on a busy street. I saw the benefit of that safety latch immediately. )

I was waiting for that reply !!!!! I don't weld myself. I have to check into the steel and welding on it first. Just think the bolt heads may gouge the under side of the trailer hitch plate, if the two make contact.

Welding that far from any latching mechanisms should not hurt anything. Just requires removing the powder coating before welding. Mig welding machines hate rust, paint and especially powder coating.

Herk, I used that saying on my dad one time, his response was, and I quote: "Grass doesn't grow on a busy street, OR in concrete" Never said that to him again.

Nope, had a full head of hair then. I think it might of had something to do with being able to penetrate something or other, just not sure.

My dad was talking about my hair.
I got my hair from my maternal grandfather.

If I got my hair from anyone, I lost it shortly after reaching 40 and I haven't found it yet, 32yrs later.
My paternal grandfather died at 98 with a full head of hair. Never knew my maternal GF.

The MPB gene comes from your maternal grandfather as I understand the genetics of it.
