    Just noticed that my V-XT only has a red safety catch on one side?

    I am wondering if one fell out or was there only one in the first place?

    The parts diagram at Boss website only shows one side and does not list quantity for this part. It is #120 on the diagram.

    That's correct. Only 1 safety latch. I'm not real fond of only one but oh well. Never had any issues.

    That's strange because we bought our 2 v-xt's this fall too and they only have one.

    There only needs to be one. One pin will hold the plow on the truck. My dxt only has one

    Maybe I'm thinking of something different or I'm just high

    Mine originally came with one but I also had one installed on the other side just in case.

    It's also a theft protection built in. Our straight blade and both DXT's have 1.

    How would it prevent theft? You just push it down and flip the lever?
