I know some remove their rear hitches between tows, and others leave the hitch installed. I also understand that in some localities the law requires the hitch be removed when not towing. Where I am the law is that the hitch must be removed if it blocks your license plate, but if it doesn't block the number, the hitch can be left installed 24/7.
If you do routinely remove your hitch, but want it along with you, how do you store it safely? It's a pretty solid and heavy item to just leave loose on a cab floor, and just tossing it in the pickup bed invites theft. I don't have a tool box in the bed and don't want one, so what is a good, safe way to stow my hitch when I remove it?
