    Fender washer, bolt, wing nut. Run it through the junction behind the disc torsion gusset. Or make a clamp that will clamp on the stay itself.

    Does your trailer have a quick release mount option like the Chariots do?

    yea thats the first pic i was showing up there i think, thats the pieces that stays on the bike and u hook the chariot (thats what mine is not a trailer) up to that and u dont have to bolt and un bolt it every time. the hole thats smaller in the pic is the one that the axle goes tho

    I see. The disc tab interferes with the trailer mount and won't let it sit against the dropout face.
    Grab an axle spacer that's the thickness of the disc tab and mount the trailer connection outside against the disc tab face.
