    Would you purchase a product that would save your shin from your hitch?

    No, I wouldn't spend $20 when common sense is free. As often as we work around them, we get used to them. That would be like paying for something so we don't bump our head while getting into the car or the truck.

    I already own a pair of $100 shin guards that I use when umpiring baseball games. :cool2:

    The common sense approach works for me at work. I never cross the tongue of the trailer. :D

    I haven't hit my shin in about 2 years. now, if I could just keep my girlfriend from rubbing up on it with her good pants all the time... she's ruined 3 pairs of pants this year with the axle grease.
