Thanks - Phil
I always removed it prior to backing into a spot.

Seems to me they couldn't bend if they were installed so that at the sharpest possible backing angle the control would not compress to the end of the travel. I have had several trailers with singles and one with a dual setup--never loosened one and never bent one. Now, if you mount the bracket on the trailer tongue too close to the hitch head, that would do the bending...
