Interesting. I would "insist" to have it done. If the "kit" by the manufacturers had it, then they were just lazy.... in my opinion.

There is a local farm shop here in my state, they build "hitches" for "everything". Other then when putting semi truck 5th wheel hitches, EVERYTHING has loops for safety chains....
