Good old grease for me, no worries about high hitching my B&W with it's thick jaws.

To do so you would have to be blind in one eye and unable to see out the other. [emoticon]

Wow Gary, always enjoyed your posts, and messages! But hearing of your smearing grease all over your nice B&W, IDK?? [emoticon]

I had an elderly neighbor, that purchased a new B&W, to put in his new GM. He had trouble seeing, to line things to hook up, using a 1/4" disc. I told him to get the thinner 1/8" disc. Instead he got a big can of spray grease, that he sprayed all over his pin, all over his hitch, the bed of his new truck, and likely his glasses. He gave up (health issues), sold everything.

Anyway...Gary...take a look at that 1/8" disc, that B&W now sells on their page. I will send a check, if needed, but with your fancy rig, money should be a non-issue!

That spray could lead to loss of status on the B&W Heavyweight FanBoy Club.

Don't knock the spray until you try it. I don't think the spray is better than a lube plate. I also agree the 1/8" plate is the solution. I have a Hensley BD3 hitch with Hollan Binkly jaws.My hitch would not latch using a 1/4" lube plate but works well with the 1/8".
If you really need more clearance or don't want to use a lube plate I highly recommend the spray. It is effective, provides adequate lubricity and no where near as messy as grease

Honestly I didn't know they even made an 1/8" disc, but sounds like the ticket.

Hensley has made one for several years and that is what I have used. If I ever loose mine I will buy the B&W model.

Pullrite specifically says "No Lube Disc" Late yr models only thin spray lube such as WD 40.
