Hitch pin

Having a hard time finding a pin for the safety latch on the tongue of the trailer itself. When it's engaged (in the locked position), there's no room for a normal pin. The sides of the ball cavity are too high just to slide a normal pin in. Anyone have this issue?

Isn't that designed to wheedle-in a small padlock?

I found a small brass hitch lock at Wal-Mart that works have seen the lock at Camping world as well that is the only one that I found that would work for me and my hitchlooks just like yours. I would post a picture but not close to trailer right now.

I did manage to find a padlock that would work but I'd like to try to find a regular pin with a wire flip lock or even a pin with a hole in it for a "hairclip" pin.

Have you found a 1/4 -20 bolt that fits yet? Use that for now, then try places like Tractor Supply, Northern Tools, maybe a farm and fleet.

I put small padlock there also. I have a question another thread suggested that you should take tow bars out to back into sites. I was wondering if you do since you have similar setup?

I agree, TWP723, I've been looking for the small original safety pins for months and can't find them. I have 3 trailers, a Jayco travel trailer, a Coleman tent trailer & a Wells Cargo cargo trailer. Someone ripped off the one on the cargo trailer and the new Jayco TT didn't come with a pin (they gave me a bolt when I first picked it up - gee, thanks guys). I use the last one on all of them and remove it when in storage. If anyone finds a vendor, please let us know.
