I’ve been looking for a hitch clamp for my 2020 Ascent with an OEM hitch. I found a solution on amazon.com that can also be found at Hitch Clamp Heavy Duty 2" - Hitch Coupling Tightener. With a little modification using a hand held grinder, I was able to make it fit fairly well. I have not been able to try it out yet but thought others may be interested in seeing what I did. I had to narrow the section of the clamp that goes into the ball mount. I also had to chamfer the end of the narrowed section to clear weld beads. Another issue was that the bolt did not have a flat surface to push against. To resolve this I attached a plate to the receiver using JB Weld. This is probably the weakest point in the assembly
