              Not accurate. A lot of boat trailers also have that style hitch lock.

                    I've been working for U-Hauls Australian competition for a while. That "screwy thing" is called an adjustor bolt, not everyone has standard size tow-balls, some have old degraded ones, so they have to be adjustable to suit most people. Secondly safety chains should be attached with a rated d-shackle, not... whatever TF that was I saw (not your fault, guessing uhaul provided it). Thirdly, 60 mph around a corner? With a trailer? Dude, unless that corner is 10 degrees or less, no bueno. End summary, yyyeah, they probably blacklisted you if they had to collect the trailer. I'd recommend hiring moving trucks in future, they're not that much more expensive, come with a tail-lift, and when something goes wrong with them there's much less chance of it being user error.

                                This is why you let the employee hook up the trailer, also no blacklist =).

                                          Sounds like he had the wrong size ball for the trailer.

                                            Jimmy John's delivers to us within 10 minutes of placing the phone order; much better than Uhaul.

                                              I also hate the Uhaul trailers and the way they connect onto the ball.

                                              I drove an hour and a half with a car trailer without the damn thing connected onto the ball! Didn't notice a thing until we tried loading the car, and the front of the trailer lifted. Extremely lucky.

                                                I've always thought that square screw down thing for the hitch was stupid as hell. I had one come loose on a U-haul trailer while hauling a car. Thankfully I randomly decided to check it at a gas station. I've noticed now they make the people at the U-haul place tighten it before you leave. I bet the lock that holds the square was bad on yours.

                                                      Always bring pliers, crescent wrench, or pipe wrench when using a uhaul.

                                                          It's okay Doug, I too am banned from uhaul, apparently they dont like it when your truck breakdowns down and you decide to say fuck it I'm leaving the trailer on the side of I5 freeway in California to save 150 dollar tow for the trailer. (Trailer got stolen before they could recover it)

I do think design is horrible and have cut my thumb several times tightening/untightening. I feel your pain, surprised it came off, I believe Doug was right saying something was wrong, I think I have seen one trailer that was fully tightened that came off someone's truck (same situation, driveway has a bump, when they hit it, came off, chains kept it from slamming ground.

They rust and you can't see if its tight, and nobody has a wrench big enough to use so you just stop once you cut yourself a couple times and hope for the best. It'd be a lot easier if they were all just meant for a 2" ball and rented you a draw bar with that size and the right height instead of the adjustable tongue bullshit.
