Thenewkid64 shared a design feature of my Reese Weight Distributing Hitch at the Blues Springs Forum Rally a couple of weeks ago. The spring bars have a hole in the drawbar side which just happens to be the same diameter as the adjustment chains' U-bracket "lifting pin" (the part where I use a cheater pipe to snap the bracket into position).

This picture shows the bars in their stored position.

Thanks Brett!
Tom

I don't lock them up and don't worry about it - life is too short. Although maybe if I had a Hensley I would! I just have a simple Eaz-lift system. When I'm camped I have a foot-long 2x4 that I stand on it's side under the tongue, and another small 1x4 and I simply hang the corner end of the bars over the 2x4, with the greasy part resting on the small board. The drop bar ass'y comes out of the receiver and goes under the front of the trailer. At home it all goes under the back end of the trailer, pretty much out of sight. I have left my trailer for a week at a time in RV parks - never a problem.

I use the cheap plastic disposable mitts the ones that you use when pumping diesel.
When finished removing the WD bars I grab the grease end and slide the mitt over end of the bar and put them in the rear slide drawer. I have clean hands and the inside of the clean mitts keep the grease fron getting on stuff.

On my 2004 Bambi I put everything in the back storage compartment. Fits really well even though the compartment is not that wide it is deep.
