DiversiTech Locking Aluminum Ball Mount

Does anyone have any experience with the Diversitech Locking Aluminum Ball Mount linked here?

They are a bit pricey, but it would eliminate the need for a separate hitch pin, or locking hitch pin in my case, as I would like to use a stainless steel ball with it. Pretty sure without a hitch pin lock I wouldn't have it very long. The ball mount is rated Class 5, 2000 lbs tongue load and 14,000 lb. tow rating. The keyed lock is built in and projects pins out each side to secure the hitch to the receiver.

Second choice might be a standard ball mount, but chrome plated instead of the standard black powdercoat. Just wonder if the wear of the ball mount against the receiver would wear through the chrome, making it flake off, etc. Separate hitch pin needed.

Third choice would be a standard ball mount made of stainless steel. I have no doubts about the finish on one of these, still would need separate locking hitch pin though.

Any comments or experience with either of the above would be welcomed.
