I currently have two pieces of flat stock (on each side) with holes drill in them for a pin to drop through. It is what came on the trailer, is flimsy and sloppy. Not a great setup. I've been meaning to weld a couple of pieces of round stock for a pin to drop through, but havent done so yet.

Thank you, Dad - for always being the dad that you were. You truly are my hero. You always were.
