[DELETE PLEASE] Alabama Company Agrees to Recall 6,800 Tractor-Trailer Hitches

This article makes me wonder if it was one of the hitches that punctured battery, caused fire and resulted in titanium shield upgrade: http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2015/09/10/business/ap-us-runaway-trailer-recall.html

in documents filed with the agency that the hitch locking mechanisms can be damaged over time by truck operators who don't follow proper coupling and maintenance procedures

EDIT: after further search it does not appear so since it's a little too big :)
