    Welcome to the forum, if I had the same problem I'd drill it out and put a bigger pin through it but if it's really elongated that might not be an option .

    Like @GQtdauto says it depends how much it is worn. Can you put a pic up?
    2005 GU IV ST 3.0. Snorkel. Roof rack. Awning. Spots. Welded I/C. Dual batteries & VSR. UHF. Barn door hinge extension. Roof top spot lights. Rear drawers. 2" lift. NADS. EGT and boost gauges. Trans temp and water temp gauges. Provent 200 catch can. Rear ladder

    Welcome to the forum.
    As I lay there looking up, taking in the spectacular view that was the night sky and the multitude of stars I asked myself, where did my tent go?

    I have seen elongated holes in the reciever fixed by cutting out a square around the hole, and welding in a replacement piece slightly thicker than original.
    Cheers,

    Doesn’t sound right, I’d be contacting the manufacturer of the tow bar.
