Built these cart/carriers.

The first was Alpha, built in 1995, for my FX1.

It used a steel hitch piece for about 5yrs, till it started to sag (salt water).

So I upgraded to stainless about 18 yrs ago, no problems since.

Alpha works like this:

Single pin retains it to the hitch piece.

About 23 yrs, doesn't owe me a dime. Used it with both FX & SJ. Going to am hull figured time for an upgrade.
