Yeah, I just use the sleeve that slips over the 1-1/8 tractor PTO shaft but will never buy from TSC. I thought I'd replace my old one a few years ago and bought one of the theirs. As I was mowing the PTO driveline flew off flopping around dangerously because the tractor PTO was still driving it. OK, I figured I didn't have it pinned on so slipped it back on and put another safety/hair pin clip on it. I resumed mowing and it did it again. What the heck? On closer inspection I found that the sleeve had an excessive chamfer on the end, and that was the root cause of the mower driveline knuckle from not holding on and flying off. I shop elsewhere now and went to my local CNH dealer and bought theirs after looking closely at the end chamfer and who made it. It is still being used today and never have had a problem with it. It matters where you buy...
