The object on the floor is a "stinger" that fits into the receiver on my hitch car. It is basically a 45 lb solid bar of iron with a trailer ball at one end and in the bar for the hitch pin to insert into. It is awkward and an absolute bitch to handle; back in 2009 I dropped it on my foot and wound up with a broken toe. Its so heavy that if you drop it on concrete and it will knock chunks out.Theoretically at least, when not in use it is supposed to be stowed by inserting it upright into the square receptacle that is bolted to the floor. The problems with this theory are obvious; the receptacle's location in the corner beneath the shelf makes it impossible to stow or remove this heavy iron bar without a very dangerous end-range motion, plus if your car is full in the morning you have to unload a bunch of packages and get them out of the way in order to gain acess to the stinger. As a result of this incompetent design, most drivers simply leave the stinger lying in the rain gutter next to the door where it is more accessible. Unfortunately, this creates yet another safety issue; the stinger bounces around on rough roads where it beats up and eventually damages the wiring harness for the rear lights that pokes up thru the hole in the back corner. I wound up shorting out my brake and reverse lights on that side, and the mechanic told me I needed to start keeping the stinger in the receptacle again. In the car I used to have, the receptacle was bolted to the floor in the cab in front of where the passengers feet normally rest. This keeps the stinger in your "power zone" when you remove or replace it while standing upright outside the passenger side door. To keep it secure, all that is needed is to drill in the recptacle big enough to put the hitch pin through, which will keep the stinger in place even in the event of a rollover. For some unfathomable reason, this modification was deemed "unsafe" and the receptacles were relocated to their current, functionally useless position.So....do I tear up my back and shoulder reaching all the way under there to dig that bitch out of the receptacle, or do I leave it lying in the gutter where it will beat up and short out the wiring for the rear lights? Is it too much to ask for UPS to think before they install equipment in such a foolish matter?
