I used a piece of 1 1/2" x1/4" flat stock about 5 " long. drilled one hole for the trailer ball (threaded portion) to fit thru and another 1/2" hole about an inch from the end of the bar stock. I put the one end under the ball and the other is where the tow bar attaches.

here's a pic

How does the ring one stay on ball?

Otter makes a flipper hitch for around 20$. It installs on the underside of the ball shank of a regular receiver. I really like it as it also allows the sled pivot up and down when traversing steep areas. You can also make one out of a heavy duty gate hinge.

Tried that with the biggest barn hinge, after a couple uses it began to twist. I now have a similar one to the Otter Flipper hitch, it's solid.
