Installing the Shin Guard is fast and easy. You don’t even have to take off the hitch ball. Simply slide the Shin Guard down over the top of the ball, stretch the bottom down around the nut, and you’re done.
Another great feature of the Shin Guard is the wiring harness tether that keeps the harness wire from dragging on the ground. The tether stays attached to your harness wire with the flat end. Then, when you’re ready to tow, you simply pull the loose end through the loop on the side of the Shin Guard and fasten it into place.
