It is a dragon flagpole holder made by my artistic friend Tom Beebe. Tom, a retired chef, makes a variety of whimsical animals and birds from salvaged engine parts and re-bar. I mentioned to Tom that I wished I had a dragon flagpole holder and he surprised me a few weeks later with one. Wish I had a photo of it on this laptop.

My locks are lubricated each time I grease the hitch (1000 miles) and the two on the links are removed and reinstalled each time I hook up or unhook. Never a problem.

I have used a lock on the ball lock for years without trouble.

I have not been using padlocks on Lucy's Hensley's over center latches, but I have always used an extended hasp Master padlock on her coupler. I have used the same lock for eight years now. It has always been in place and rarely unlocked. About the only times that it has been unlocked was to grease the ball, which wasn't as often as it should have been. This lock has never malfunctioned or jammed.

Found a photo

I took this photo of my ProPride when I first installed it. It shows the dragon flagpole holder made for me by my friend Tom Beebe that was inquired about earlier.

Note that although I hang my chains in the back of the yoke when unhitched, the chains emerge correctly from between the bars.
