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


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 to help loosen up the locks.

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