I know this doesn't answer your question, but after having so much trouble with factory-installed hitch cover– I bought a heavy-duty black rubber insert for the receiver. I've got two shackles on either side to make it easier to attach the safety chains. I actually like the way it looks, naked.

What are you all doing for hitch/receiver covers? Using this OEM, ordering this high quality custom made one, something else?
