Custom Hitch Cover

Hello, I was curious about custom hitch covers, something that no else has made yet.

So my neighbor and I, he who is an army veteran an myself a college student, are making custom hitch covers in his garage.

Many are available now which he had already made, custom one's are being developed daily.

What would hitch cover have you always wanted or would like to see?

Pricing $$$ to be determined depending on detail & size

I have found 2 designs for the trailer hitch insert, If you are able to describe more of what you were looking for and choose 1 of the designs as a base to work off of that would help a great deal in our venture process

Here is a hitch I did when I was bored on a Sunday.

The eyes are red led and light up when I hit the brakes or use the blinkers. I formed it with a ball-peen hammer on a leather pillow from the family room sofa. I don't know if it would be cost effective for you to build, but I get A LOT of comments.

I work for a weapons company, and one of our products is a Claymore hitch cover.
They are some of our most popular items:
Claymore Mine Hitch Cover

I have seen and actually contemplated on driving around with one of those (claymore face towards enemy hitch covers) But I thought also it might be a little to extreme
