Peerless produces and tests these in different plants around the world, but they are also Quality Controlled and Tested in the USA, before they are released and sold in the USA!
July 25th, 2019 Update: Was reminded by one of the reviews that our sales rep Jacqueline found a trick that makes these hammerlocks easier to assemble: leave them in your freezer overnight. That pin is not easy to drive in there at that angle, but if you do the freezer trick, and make sure you got a block of wood to bang it in there with, that will make life easier for you.
May 31st, 2018 Update: Just found out that 2018 Chevy 2500 truck has the same issue. So I guess you could call this a hammerlock solution for Chevy and Ford hitch.
Here is a video made by one of our customers of the hammerlock solution for the F-250 safety chain hitch problem:
Please note; if you can have a 2x4, 2x6 etc. as backing, when tapping in the pin, it will be easier.
Also, since this is not done on a work bench, where it is easy to assemble these, we highly recommend having a friend helping you!
- Start by light tapping on the pin, to get it into the sleeve.
- Once the pin is seated into the sleeve, you can tap on it with more force.
