I made my own wedge out of 1" thick steel plate and drilled holes instead of using slots which tend to let the wedge move. The wedge MUST fit tight to the sides of the hitch trough and if it is a wedge with slots, the slots should be filled with a steel slug of some kind so the wedge cannot move. The mere shape of the wedge is conducive to moving and thus loosening.
