New camper, much different hitch

Hi.. just bought a new to me 27 foot. It has a clamshell style hitch which I've never seen before. What is this called?

Also, after the clamshells wrap around the hitch ball and latch comes down esuring they won't open and a pin secures the latch. I want a locking pin, like the ones used to secure the hitch on the car, but cant find one with a smaller diameter to fit. Can someone let me know where to find one?

A picture would help in determining exactly what you are calling a, "clam shell hitch"

If you can unwrap the chains off and take a few shots from different angles, it will be helpful. Any name on it?

Here's a picture of it open and ready to hook up. Once you back the ball into it, it closes around the ball and you push the latch down holding the clamshell closed

Looks like it may be a Lippert product.
