We have been using the Blue Ox plugs in our toads for over 10 years. Never lost one and they keep the snow and salt out of the receiver hole. Much easier to lubricate in the spring before re-installing the inserts.

Another thing that I do is give the receiver holes a good shot of silicone lube before plugging.

We use Hillman #7 Rubber stoppers (1 3/8 x 1 3/16 x 1 inch) in our Blue Ox plate. Purchased at Lowes in the specialty hardware drawers. Don't remenber the price, but less than a couple of dollars each. They stay in place well and easy to remove.

I went to my local hardware store and bought rubber crutch tips (rubber tips for crutches or canes) for .49c ea.

Billy,

Their OD is tapered, so if you walk them in (pushing on one side, then the other) they'll NEVER come out on their own.

Just a thought, if you live where there are Marine supply outlets, would the expandable drain plugs for trailered outboard boats work? Don't know what sizes they come in though.
