    Re: cheese rind?

    Guessing: A rind deck may refer to an old deck; one in which the planks have had the softer tissue between the grain removed, leaving a ridged surface.

    Yes. So what you do is slip the card in above or below the latch and in as far as you can. Then move the card at an angle against the back side of the latch.

    Hitches ( in the US, anyway) are on the vehicle.
