SHS - Hot finished square hollow section.
SHS is also known as Structural Hollow Section and can be HSS........mun

I believe here it is for the immediate comprehension and avoidance of all doubt rather that correct geometrical definition.
You are however correct........a square is a rectangle.

Are you wanting to bolt a normal tow hitch on , you could drill and tap the eye hitch and slide some H S over it and bolt it through

Yes and I might have to do that yet as someone has welded the bolts inside the box section

Is it going to be just for launching or rd use as well
You could just cut the end off and bolt a 50 mm hitch onto the flat

Don't see y not I made a trailer years back for general use just bolted the hitch to some HS the only problem was that I had the half round bit were the draw tube sits so I packed it out with some half round hand rail and its still going.

I have one of them already but the hole on the trailer is bigger, is there a sleeve I can get to go over the pin to take up the slack? It's not great when you pull away or slow down...

Mick's right, they shouldn't be tight on the pin. There's a 5000kg version that has a bigger pin, but I'm not sure of the diameter.

If it was me I'd use it, put up with a bit of clanking from the back (have often towed plant trailers down to Cornwall and up Lancs way and didn't notice the noise after a bit!) to be safer in the knowledge that it's less likely to get nicked

Oh, and saved myself a couple of quid and some time on on the mods...

Just as an aside those Dixon Bate combination hitches are the ONLY ones to use. I think they are great
