If you have a vernier caliper, measure the kingpin and then the latched hitch. If you don't have a vernier, two straight pcs of wood, one on each side of the pin and measure the distance at the front and back, moving the blocks until you get the same measurement at the front & back and that is the dia. of the pin. Then measure the dia of the latched hitch. I seriously doubt you have a 1/2" difference in the measurements. Maybe 1/8" max., but that's just a guess until I measure mine.
