    stacking snow in my lot, I almost lost the hitch pins holding the plow to the mount. The cotter pins worked their way out at some point and the left pin was hanging by the plow weight tension in the coupler. Disaster averted but real lucky!!!! Got to check them more often.

    I lost my right one this storm! The only pin I don't have a spare for, thankfully the plow didn't pop off before I noticed it and I was able to engineer something to get me by. Needless to say I have a full set of pins on order, and will have a couple spares. Once the snow melts I might find it. :D

    Use a clip & push it on all the way through...you'll never drop a pin again.
