    Not really a tech question, curious has anyone had their trailer hitch cover stolen? I was looking to buy a New York Yankees cover, $40.00. Not sure how long it would last on my hitch! Thanks and Happy Holidays, Joe

    I would buy a Red Socks cover and replace your yanks one just to see if you noticed! I would just get it and let it get stolen. The lock will be almost as much as the cover. Call it a social experiment.

    Yea, if it's yankees and you had a lock on it, it would just get smashed and the wires cut.
