Extra Blue Ox base plate arms?

I recently had a blue ox towbar system installed. I like it a lot more than the roadmaster towmaster we bad on our previous toad.

My question is if it is possible to purchase extra removable arms? Seems like they could get lost or stolen at an inopportune time. I searched online but didn't find.

Call Blue Ox and I'm sure they'll help. Make sure you give them the exact vehicle model and year, those pins are not all the same!

Yes, I purchased from a Blue Ox dealer. He had to order them.

You need to ask for Blue OX TABS. I got a nice pair off EBAY for the price of one new one from Blue OX.

Not to be contrary here, but... I've used the Blue Ox system for the past 15 years and have never been concerned about one of those tabs getting lost or stolen. It's hard to imagine someone stealing one while it is in use between the car and the motorhome. When you disconnect the toad, you don't want to go driving around with those things sticking out the front. So you simply keep them tucked away, out of sight, in a motorhome side compartment. And you will most likely want to lock your side compartments if the motorhome is unattended for any period of time, anyway.

I do keep an extra one of those little plastic pins for my break-away switch in the toad glove box, though. That thing has to stay on the toad all the time, and it would be a lot easier to lose one of those.
