Hitch Reciever Shackle In Canada????

Hey guys!!! Im looking for a 2" hitch that has a shackle on it that is sold in Canada, preferably local in Edmonton area. I looked at a few local spots like Canadian Tire and a few auto parts stores but couldn't find one. I thought about getting one from the US but shipping would have been about $50 for a $40 part!!! Any help would be appreciated. Thanx.

honestly though, i wanted something like this and just got the receiver kit from princess auto. it was on sale for $24 and came with a lock, receiver and 2" ball. i took the ball off and just threw a shackle on there. works the same and can be swapped out if i need to tow.

There is a Princess Auto across the city from me. I looked online and called that store and they only had solid tow rings.

what is a solid tow ring? this...http://www.princessauto.com/trailer/...00-lb-tow-ring

this:http://www.princessauto.com/trailer/...ball-mount-kit
plus these:http://www.princessauto.com/all-seas...anized-shackle
plus a way to get the 2" ball off
=all you need.
it gives you a towing receiver, extraction point and lock. if you just get the solid ring, all you get is one thing that can't tow a trailer.
