Well - they said I have to grind off the capped bolt head, and then chuck the hitch away. Lock barrels can't be changed in the cast hitch head version I have.
They have only recently started logging locking hitch key numbers against
customers names !!
angle grinder time !

Very easy

to grind off the "security" cap - had the hitch removed in about 10 minutes and a new pressed steel one fitted in about 5 minutes.
15 minutes and a battery angle grinder and I could have been towing the trailer away. Food for thought.

As Nos said in another thread...there ain't nothing that can't be undone and nicked with the right tools
