Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MGS Convenient time saver for Cub Cadet XT1 Lawn Tractor
I have a Cub Cadet XT1 lawn tractor with a few tow-behind items: aerator, spreader and cart. These attach to the back of the tractor with a hitch pin that you need to lock in with a cotter pin. Lining up the cotter pin on a couple of these takes more time than I care to admit, or at least more coordination and practice than I have patience for. Using the King Pin is simple and quick. I did have to expand the hole on the cart for the pin to fit through with a drill bit, which took about a minute. Really happy with the convenience of this.
The mechanism used to allow the expanding pin to retract into the body for removal is prone to a lot of dirt and debris since it hangs under the tractor. I've been hitting it with WD-40 as a cleanup measure when I remove it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Babu Seems good so far
This product seems to work just fine. The proof will be in how it works next year after a hard winter. I hope it holds up and doesn't freeze up. It does save my back quite a bit when I hook things onto my tractor.

Very handy device . Just reach down and grab. Only drawback is you must make sure trigger is fully squeezed or wings can still catch

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeep1999 Perfect, save time and your knees
Great for hitching and unhitching my cart from lawn mower. Only problem is it is a little too long, first one got caught on stepping stone and bent.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Janey Watch for pin that will not close
We had to replace the one from the store because one pin would not close making it impossible to put the unit through the hole. I had to check out three before I found one that works.....that said, the working hitch pin is very easy to use! Good product if you get a working one!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Beaker Good For Light Use
The King-Pin Hitch is not designed for heavy work. I've had one before which I used on my John Deere L111 and wagon. Bumps and rough terrain quickly deformed the spring-loaded bars that hold the hitching bar in place. Because it is so easy to use, I'm trying another one and recommend it only for sporadic, light use, with reservations.
