What is an alternative trailer hitch for the Re~Cycled bike trailer? This is the webpage of the trailer http://www.re-cycle.org/sites/re-cycle.org/files/Trailer.pdf

The reason I don't like it is because it tends to spring open and closed. Maybe use a ball and rod like this? ball socket like some trailers use

Check instructables.com and search for bike trailers. There are many different ideas used to connect utility trailers. –  Benzo Dec 31 '12 at 14:09
    
I have a web page full of trailer building links, some of them might be useful to you: chiark.greenend.org.uk/~armb/cycling/trailer.html –  armb Jan 29 '13 at 13:57

Simplest answer would be to find a trailer that you like that sells the hitch as a spare part, and use that. For example http://www.carryfreedom.com/hitch.html
