Once you have this dropped over you hitch ball simply pull back on the collar and your going to push back on the hinge. And the collars going to slide back over it and you'll reinstall the pin and secure it with the clip. Now that pin can be replaced with a pin and lock system, that way you can protect your trailer from theft and make it even more secure for your hookup when its connected to your tow vehicle.
