My bet is the hitch was self installed.

Looks to me like somebody forgot to put the pins in when the hitch was set on the rails.

Mine is self installed. It's as good as a dealer would do. It's not going anywhere.

Nowhere did I say that all self installs are bad. I own a vehicle accessories business and I've seen things you wouldn't believe. LOL
