I use a locking hitch pin too. I have to remove the shank and hitch head after each trip as I park my truck in the garage and if I don't the hitch head would end up in a closet
Some use the bolt/nut approach because it's cheaper than a locking hitch pin and you know how that goes. Cheaper rules in a lot of cases.
