Raid your wife's/girlfriends sewing box for a round head pin.  Insert the pin into the hitch with a little superglue and cut off the extra pin length.  Add a resin nut under the hitch receiver onto the pin with a little superglue and you are done!

Hello, I had the same problem. If I read it right it is the ball where the trailer hooks to on the tow vehicle. I made my own. I took some sprew heated it and streched it to the diamiter I wanted. Tnen I heated the tip melting it enough to mold a ball and it works great and looks fine too.It will take a few trys to get it right, but with all the extra plastic in kits sprew is aboundant. At the risk of giving myself away I used a cigarette to heat the tip. I made it larger than I needed then filled it to size and cut it.

Guess What?

If you need a trailer hitch ball for 1/16 all you need to do is get some LEGO Bionicle small parts .They have one that's dead on for a proper hitch Ball
