How many times have you backed up and found the trailer tongue 2" to the left or right?  Just think how easy it will be for him - just loosen that nut, swing over and "presto".

And the conversation piece his bumper will be at the next BBQ, after hitting the brakes swings the whole pile into his bumper-- "Them are interesting crease marks in your bumper how did that happen?

Looks like an intentional joke to me....or a Darwin Award winner wannabe.

I hope they lock the steering wheel properly. Next piece is obviously a double coupler setup.

Even worse than the truck owner is the manufacturer of the hitch. What is the manufacturer's intent for mounting? There is a bolt hole (awful design) and very little area for welding (and what would you weld it to?) I guess you could epoxy it to a plastic bumper.

I was going to buy a dozen but I think I will hold off.

Oh, maybe the manufacturer is not crazy. The right-most end is supposed to slip into a receiver, and if you don't have one - well, no problem - just do like they do in Arizona.   ;D

Hard to tell the scale but it looks like the left part is a normal ball mount that slips into a receiver (the ball would be mounted where the bolt is).  The 3-ball end looks like it could be for a 1" receiver.  I guess the owner found the parts at Wallyworld that fit together and figured out how to attach the mess to his truck...

When somebody gets hurt by this, they (injury lawyers) will find it was the hitch manufacturer's fault for not providing correct application instructions on a sticker.
Then there will be a class action case, where everybody who has bought this insert will get like a $1 rebate, and the lawyers will get many $Ms
I think I will go buy one today.

The first thought I had was, "what was their thought process." A ball, $10. That set up? $75-100. Doesn't really look redneck to me. Spent far to much.

Agreed.  The bolted down bit is for a Class V receiver 2.5", a pin to match, and a 2" 3 way hitch. 

We'll assume that's grade 8 bolt and you got $100 worth of stupid.
