Homemade Trailer Hitches Are Illegal In Illinois
Don't use a homemade trailer hitch in the state of Illinois because it's illegal.
Maybe you've been in this situation.
You buy a big item like a couch. After the purchase, you don't want to spend the extra money on delivery. Your neighbor has a trailer to loan you but your SUV doesn't have a trailer hitch. It seems like a good idea to just rig it up. The store isn't that far and it's only one trip.
Here's some advice. Don't do it. It's illegal in Illinois and if you get a ticket, the cost will end up being more than paying for delivery.

Don't try that at home.
