Glad alls well. I just saw something that looked like a concern.

Several times I've seen a rotation witness mark on the head from ball rotation.

I'm ready for a campfire.

Here's what I use to move my hitch. Works great. https://www.rvupgradestore.com/Orang...C0EC770CE60F3E

I have this always attached to my hitch head. I loop it through one of the spare holes in the drop shank. Topmost in my case which makes it balance good.

Super cheap and makes the hitch head easy to grab and move around.

I also use the handle loop to route my tether and emergency brake wire through and it keeps everything nice and tidy.

I'll grab a pic of it in actual use when I get out camping again this weekend.
Am interested in this device, but want to make sure I get the right model. The stock photo in your post shows the brown handle, which on Amazon is CLPT-02, $8.37. Your "in use" photo in your subsequent post shows a dark green handle, which on Amazon is $6.97, but no model number. Both Southwire, and they appear to have same specs (2" adjustable, rotating handle, etc.). Are they the same? (I don't care that one is a couple of $ more, I just want to get the one you say works for you). Maybe I'm splitting hairs, but I don't want to miss a small detail that makes one work for this purpose and the other one won't work.

Thanks, Rick

I second this hitch carrier. It makes lugging the hitch around a breeze and grease free. People think the carrier would slip off but it is designed to lock into place on the ball by being slightly off level. This puts enough pressure on the unit to tightly lock it in place.
The price is also very good.

Hi Rick. I actually picked up mine at Home Depot and it was the only one there. I couldn't find the green one on Amazon prior. They do look to be one and the same other than color.

Here's a pic of how I have it setup under tow. I run my umbilical and emergency brake wires through the loop to keep them tidy. And make sure they aren't hanging low and risking getting caught by road debris.

Thanks for the clarification and additional photo. Yes, it looks like a nice clean setup. Will see if a Home Depot in my area (there are several) carries them.

I just realized you're also in San Diego (well, I'm in Imperial Beach, so same neck of the woods).
