I had an idea while deciding what to do about the thin plastic under the hexagonal nut socket. Instead of using a nut, I threaded the hole in the hitch pin to #6-32.
Threading the hitch pin hole is a little more work than I wanted, but it makes for a clean design. I chose black countersunk machine screws with a small hex key drive, so they are very discreet. The model and code are available on Thingiverse, and the online editor allows you to change the parameters.
