Equalizer Hitch Surprise
In hitching up today, one of the sway bar receptacles on the hitch seemed to move somewhat freely, so I got out my sockets and box wrenches to snug things up. The nut and a small piece of the bolt fell off. The bolt was still threaded through the nut. I went to Ace Hardware and bought a Grade 5 4.5Ē x 5/8 bolt plus nut.
Am writing to Progressive Mfg to report the issue and try to get replacement bolts and nuts in the proper grade if Grade 5 is substandard.
Glad it did not happen when towing.
