What hitch is it?

I saw this hitch yesterday. There were no identifying maker nor numbers. It's got a key lock with locking tabs on both sides.

Has anyone seen on before and know the manufacturer?

Is it a new solution or better than the through pin type?

I've never seen one of those either... the only advantage I see is that you don't have to keep up with the pin, but it might be a bit more fiddly to line up in the receiver. With the normal one, you can "eyeball" the alignment, push on the pin and wiggle the ball mount a bit until the pin slides home. This looks like you'd have to be fiddling with the key to push the pins out while you're trying to adjust the position of the ball mount so those pins can pop out into the holes in the receiver.

Looks like a complex solution to a simple problem.
