    picked up a Bosal hitch (with removable receiver) from a breaker yard to play with. Not sure what exactly I will do with it just yet. Hopefully something awesome!

    It is missing its "little red key". Anyone know of a source? Does anyone know if they are unique to the vehicle or will any one key fit any hitch? Anyone tried to get one copied at a locksmith?

    spent some more time looking and found some good leads. Bosal sells replacement keys out of the UK.
    The keys and lock cylinder are numbered, there are a few hundred possible key numbers (001 to 200).

    Good to know that now that this is included with the X, everyone can't unlock the hitches! :D. (Only one in 200... hm....)

    FWIW, it's an easy lock for a locksmith. Probably won't have a blank with the red knob, but It shouldn't matter.
