Flush mounted rotating Pintle Hitch

Looking for a flush mounted rotating pintle hitch. I have a nato one but need one that rotates and can mount to a flat surface.

Realized I wasn't explicit enough. Looking for the "proper" NATO version of the pintle, pictured here:

It must rotate 360 degrees and be lockable.

I assume you did a search for "swivel pintle" and came across this...

Of course, but I would rather find one on our continent.

And I've already tried ebay UK. Nobody wants to ship that lump over here.

That's what I thought...I can't believe they aren't readily available here in the states, unless there is some safety regulation against that style of pintle.

How about contacting Tractor supply, see if they can do special orders.

If you find one you like at tractor supply I can order it and send it to you if they can't.

Thanks guys. They can only get the std. swivel pintles from Reese and Fulton with the big spring coming out of the back.

Sucks.

Any of the used Rover parts yards up here in the GWN should have lots of them.

Every MOD rover has one on the back and every Sankey.

Maybe phone Ivor, http://www.wildewestlandrovers.ab.ca/

or Pick up a whole and cheap Sankey....

All Sankeys should have one of these hitches on the back. Does yours not have one?
