A person could hit their leg on it if they are not careful. I will call Blue Ox tomorrow to see if I have any options. Maybe on the Arcadia it is different but I would should check.
Blue Ox stated that their design was the only way it would work with the design of my vehicle. They were very nice and I was told they would call me if they changed their design. I did let her know that I was very unhappy because the tab inserts are hidden well but not the safety chain plate. I did call some of the larger installers and they said there had no answer to solve it and all that can be done is try to hide your light hookup and brake system as much as possible. But with the other exposed why not just make it convenient to hookup and unhook.
