Trailer hitch help!

I'm replacing a damper on my trailer but there is a bolt with round heads on the hitch, does anyone know how to remove it?

RIBase
Don't think you need to take the big round one out, just the smaller one that's on the top of the coupling that's covered in coppergrease.

That is the one under the RC isn't it? Are you home with it?

At my mums, removed anti theft round things and removed the bolt by using a Bristol screwdriver!

Bit of a difference old to new!

Nah that's not a Bradley 2000 hitch. I bet he's working on his twin jetski trailer for his action man Sib??

That'll be those super-dooper anti theft TripleLock security caps then.

Once fitted you can't get 'em off you know....

I had a similar looking thing on my second user indespenion plant trailer when I got it, I also had to do a damper change and cut it off with a mini grinder and stuck a bolt of the correct size back in its place, 9 years and lots of loaded miles later all is still well.
