Reciever hitch. What do you leave in the hole?

I see lots of jeepers with hitch plugs, hooks and some special ones. What do you leave in the reviever when not towing? (Pictures appreciated)

I have a plastic plug for the receiver hitch opening but it's not really necessary. I stopped using it years ago.

I just leave my hitch in full time. I'll pull it when I'm hitting the trails.

I used to have a clevise that went into a 2" receiver, but I got tired of hearing it rattle on bumps LoL

Now I just leave the hitch empty till I need it.
