Have you ever gleefully finished the task of unhooking the trailer, only to slam your shin against the ball mount? The Shin Shield prevents shin and leg injuries that understandably can happen when you’re distracted by other things when hitching or unhitching the trailer. Installation takes just minutes — the product attaches to the ball mount under the existing ball without interfering with the operation of the hitch. It fits most major hitch manufacturers’ products that are 21⁄2 inches wide, but the company claims it has plans to manufacture more sizes in the future.
The Shin Shield is made of a durable, automotive-specific polymer that is UV-resistant so it won’t fade in the sun, and possibly best of all, it’s proudly made in the USA. msrp is $24.95.
