Hijack - I went with the winfield rv products version. The rv frame is completely enclosed so the install was much simpler, plus there is no chance of anything falling off. I also got the landing leg extension which will come in handy.

Ours have a triangular knob that is easy on the hands and takes 13 turns to come out. We haven't lost a knob in 8 years of fulltime use. Hugs, Di

Most times I do have mine off during travel only because I take them off while in storage so they won't get stolen

Never tightened them - them on a short haul lost one. Made a new one from a SS bolt heated and bent 90*. Now I just snug them a tad, loosen them when dropping inner legs.

I usually tighten them but have on many occasions forgotten of have had others towing (camper to/from factory twice). Haven't lost any, but when I had to order an inner tube for one of mine after raising my landing gear without tightening them- I ordered 4 extra T handles and threw them in my spare parts bin. Still have all 4 after 2 years and close to 10k towed miles.
