Changing Damaged Locks on a Fastway (Diversi-Tech) Adjustable Ball Mount

Question:

It appears someone may have tried to steal my hitch and used something to rotate the keyed tumbler that engages the pins to hold the hitch in place. I am not able to remove the hitch from the receiver. I tried filing a key so I could with the tumbler not at home but the key broke. I was able to rotate slightly but not fully. any help is appreciated!

The kit that you will need so that you can remove the Self-Locking Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount, like part # DTALBM6625, is the Re-Keying Kit for DTLBM and DTALBM Series Self-Locking Aluminum Ball Mounts # DTLBM02RK. This comes with 2 locks and the replacement parts that you will need along with instructions on how to change out the locks.

You will also need a spray lubricant like UltraLube Biobased Spray Lubricant # L10444 to help loosen up the locks.

I have also attached some links to demonstration videos for you to check out as well.
