They also say it should be out in front so there is no interference and you can be sure it is properly connected. I pretty much agree.

I solved my biggest problem by taking the "flag" off and my secondary problem by ordering two more of the "pins" as backups. Can keep one in the car and one in the tool box.

The ring really doesn't need this plastic tag flapping from it...
I'm wondering if there are different manufacturer's for that little device. The two I have had in the past swiveled and were designed that way. When I disconnected I just turned it to the side to hide it out of the way. Hmm! Presently on the Lincoln they tucked it behind the grill. It was difficult to get to the pull cable so I put a small carabiner on it making it more accessible. The pull cable from the MH is coil wound and just snaps back out of the way when not in use.

Push comes to shove, remove the screw and put a 1/4x20 (or whatever size) bolt with double nut on it and you won't have to worry about wallowing out.

I need to meet that person and explain the dangers he put me in.

I think I will leave it alone for now - and if anything happens make a change.

The Roadmaster Invisibrake pic in the manual looks like item 11 and 12 ... the little "flag" wasn't depicted...

Boo hoo. Now I'm sad. I really think you should mail it to me. Tim and Mary and Rezman and Mrs. Rezman and Mary and I are representing the mutants. Any other mutants going? We need a mini c in addition to the rally. When are people arriving? We will be there Friday.
