Boy did I mess up this time...

You would think, after selling 8 campers without any problem that I would have it down pat. But no, I messed up this time. My keys for the hitch were in my Escape which I emptied before selling. Now comes the realization that I have no idea where the keys to the lock pins are? Here are the pictures of my garage, my basement and my hitch set up. I'm thinking I have to cut the bolts, if I can get the blade in there...
Anyone have any ideas.....

Jim I don't know what would be quicker, to cut the pin with a hacksaw or empty totes

Cheers

I did today, he said the locks are chinese and it can take 15 minutes to 8 hours to pick both, suggested I cut them off myself.

Jim you could swing past a machine or hitch shop and get them to use a cutting torch on them, it would only take a minute at best.

Cheers

The one in the back is kind of inaccessible, the one in front is easy.
