A new tool

Anyone seen this new item. Seems like a must have for travel trailer owners or just something not needed?

IMO, Kinda silly.


There are plenty of hand hold places on any hitch, why scratch up the ball?

I saw one at a local trailer store. Seems like a good idea to me. It saves you from getting your hands dirty and it's a more balanced way to carry the hitch with only one hand. Amazon users give it mostly positive reviews.

One handed? If the ball isn't scratched it's not doing its job.

I would not be able to find it when it was needed.

I found these, and they are multi-purpose.. But I'll be happy to sell some to you for the 20 bucks the other guys want..

I find the older I get, the less my knees want to cooperate but that's probably a result from 15 years in the service. $20 is a cheap way to save way and tear on my body.
Here is a demo video:

Looks like it would make it easier to install the hitch for people with bad backs. You could use your free hand for support on the bumper. But it's not something I need... yet.
