Best not to assume the person doing the recovery actually knows what they’re doing ...

I was thinking the hitch pin could be the weakest link after watching some of the videos. What would be a good/great hitch pin to buy?
There was some discussion on hitch pin strength in one of the threads here....can't remember where though.

I was quite astonished as to how strong the pins are.

Maybe some the smarter folks can run through the math.
