Donna, Im pretty good with trailering things. Ive built numerous hitch setups. Your description is kind of vague. If you could post a digi picture, Im sure you would get an answer..
I got most of what he's saying, He has a number of clutch pins These are the pins which have one straight side and the other side is like a half loop and an angle end, it's designed to "Clutch" a shaft Wish I could ascii draw here but I'm not that good
The other kind is a straight pin with a spring clip hinged to it, it forms a retangle when "locked" (the spring pops over the end)
I use the former on stabalizer (Anti-sway) bars, I don't think I have any of the latter just now but I'm looking to buy a few for use on a conversion job I'm doing (Converting a dead pop-up into a utility trailer)
Watching the news just now.. It's a one story night, Man walked into the station lobby and started shooting, Naturally the station has devoted it's entire news cast to this case since it's their people who were at danger and one of their perole who is at hospital getting carved upon. considering Detroit Reciving is something like the #1 gunshot hospital PERIOD, he is in very good hands.
