I use a hefty motorbike locking chain - and boltcutter will NOT go through it cos I tried with a very big set!!!

An angle grinder will of course go through anything but it would take a while and the sparks would be pretty obvious!!!

My Bradley hitch came with bolts and a special nut. The hex part of the nut shears off at the correct torque and it leaves a section with a steep taper which is difficult to grip. The nut is likely available as an accessory. Every little bit helps.

Great idea.

FYI: A bit more research yields a socket for removing these things from air bag assemblies: Looks like a hole saw bit.
