Pull the Pin

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

Travel trailer weight-distributing hitches, and some fifth-wheel hitches, use pull pins. These can be difficult to remove because you can get only one finger inside the loop, which makes it difficult to pull, especially in tight areas or at bad angles. My solution was to slip a carabiner ring through the pin so I could use more than one finger to easily slide the pin out.
