Video Transcript for Blue Ox Hitch Accessories BX88224 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number BX88224. This is the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II. This is going to keep your hitch inaudible 00:00:10 accessories stable and secure. It's also going to help eliminate rattle and sway within your hitch receiver. It simply just stiffens and reinforces the receiver. It's a really quick system to mount. It's going to include the bracket, U-bolts and the nuts and this is designed to fit a 2 inch x 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. I'll go ahead and show you how it installs.

Weve got our ball mount inside of our hitch. What we need to do is place the immobilizer here on our mount. Then we need to take our first U-bolt and it's going to go from the top down through the holes and we can go ahead and install our nuts just to hold it securely in place. Well get those loosely on there. Then we'll take our other U-bolt, place it on from the side and that's going to come through the holes on this side of the bracket. We can simply take our nuts and thread those on.

You can see that with it loosely installed, we still have a lot of play inside of our hitch. If we take a 9/16-inch socket and just tighten those up, that's really going to help take out any rattle or wobble that we may have inside of our hitch. With all those tight, we'll give it another shake. You can see that it's nice and secure. There's no wobble or rattle inside of our hitch. That's going to do it for today's review of part number BX88224. This is the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II.

2006 Damon


Will probably do what it is supposed to do. Fit was good holding a Demco Excaliber tow bar onto a Damon motor home. The bar fit much tighter on my previous Thor motor home but was kind of loose on my 2006 Damon Astoria. The bracket fit perfectly and tightend everthing up. Took about 15 minutes to install. 166463

Comments

The Blue Ox performed beautifully, never let us down. It will remain our choice of hitches for towing anytime, anywhere. Sometimes I wish it were more automatic in hooking and unhooking. Maybe your engineers could work on that! We had a very large and heavy Class A motor home Newell and towed a 7,000 lb crew cab pick up truck. Worked flawlessly. Thanks.

I use this with a Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III and it works great - it completely eliminates any 'wiggle' between the hitch and the ball mount. I had to grind away a bit of the immobilizer because it was interfering with the ball mount - no biggie. The attached photo shows where I removed a bit of the bracket. 251712

I ordered a Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer from etrailer.com to reduce the sway of my bike rack. When the package arrived, I immediately noticed that the box had been tampered with and the u-bolts and instructions were missing. I called etrailer.com and they sent a new one to me right away. I am extremely satisfied with this product but even more grateful for the exceptional customer service that I received from this purchase. Thank you very much. I will recommend to everyone.

This product was delivered with no problems at the best price on the net. It assembles very easy and works well. Only gave it 4 stars because if you don't use blue locktite the nuts will loosen bery quickly. I'm pulling a 7k lb Jayco Whitehawk on a 2016 F-150. It helps with slop that is in the hitch. I'm not sure if the wedge system would of worked better cause it still moves a little but it's much better than going without it. Great product would recommend. 258695

Definitely a must have item. I was amazed at the way this simple little item worked to eliminate the play and the rattle from my hitch. This was not my first choice, but luckily they were out of stock on one of the cheaper items and I am SO glad I upgraded to this one. Customer service was extremely helpful when I called and my items shipped that day. Thanks etrailer and I will certainly be placing orders in the future with you folks. 246767

Product: Easy to install and once tightened, this thing is rock solid. It may be overkill for my hitch carrier, but this thing won’t budge and that was my main concern. I am very satisfied with this product to this point. Service: Wow! I received it surprisingly fast given the holiday weekend. The Videos made my research and decision to purchase easy. 210487

Bolted the device on and it took up all the free play between the receiver and the ball mount. I towed my bass boat the next day and it seems to feel a bit more connected. For the price they should include flat and lock washers or nylock nuts. Overall, I'm happy with the product for peace of mind if nothing else and it might be an extra theft deterrent too. 160238

I have used other brands including other designs by Blue Ox and this is the best. Very very positive in its clamping design with 2 u-bolts one for up and down and another for left and right. Has a step down from hitch to the tow bar receiver. Thank you etrailer for the best price! 248851

The receiver for our bike rack on our motor home was not very tight, even with a locking pin. This did the trick. Made it solid as a rock. Have ordered from e-trailer many times and have never been disappointed, either with the products or the shipping. 210267

by: bonron04/15/2015


The device worked as designed, no more slop in the receiver. I would suggest once you install it,, after several hours of use, check the lock nuts and re-tighten as necessary and after a day or two, re-tighten again. Don't forget the loc-tight!! 185406

Ask the Experts about this Blue Ox Hitch Accessories


  • Why Can't the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Anti-Rattle Device be Used When Towing a Trailer
  • Flat towing is the term used when a vehicle is towed with all 4 wheels on the ground behind another vehicle, typically a motor home. It is also knows as dinghy towing or towing 4 down. The Quiet Hitch # RM-061 is not rated for or tested for anything other than flat towing. So you would not use it when towing a trailer or using a hitch mounted accessory where there would be higher tongue weights. Flat towing a vehicle will all 4 wheels on the ground has very minimal tongue weight because...

  • Will the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II # BX88224 Fit a Hitch with a Lip Around Opening
  • The Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II # BX88224 that you referenced is actually designed for use on 2 inch hitches that have the lip around the edge of them that your hitch has. Basically you would install this on your hitch with the smaller flanges of the product going on behind that lip and the larger lip will make contact with the ball mount.

  • Carrying a Vespa 150 Scooter on an Itasca Reyo Motor Home
  • You might be able to put your Vespa 150 on the Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier # AMC400. However, this carrier is not rated for use at the back of any RV or trailer so you would not be able to safely use it on the Reyo. We currently have one similar carrier that can be used at the back of your RV. It is the Ultra-Fab carrier # UF48-979033. This carrier has a 500 pound capacity. The trailer hitch must have a tongue weight capacity that exceeds the weight of the carrier (about...

  • Will the Immobilizer BX88224 fit on a 2015 Toyota Tundra
  • As long as the hitch of your 2015 Toyota Tundra is a 2 inch hitch that has a lip around the outside of it the Immobilizer part # BX88224 would fit and work well.

  • Are Anti Rattle Hitch Devices Suitable for Towing a Trailer
  • Yes, there are a few anti rattle devices that will reduce or eliminate the movement of a hitch accessory, ball mount, bike rack or cargo carrier. A great wedge option is No-Rattle trailer hitch wedge # 93347. It fits 1-1/4 and 2-inch hitches. It will wedge itself between the receiver and hitch and eliminate rattle. Please note it will not work on Ford Edge and 2011 GMC Terrain vehicles with a factory installed 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch. The sleeve option I recommend is Blue Ox immobilizer...

  • Is 325 Pounds Tongue Weight Too Much for a 350 Pound Capacity Trailer Hitch
  • You have to take the weight of the bike and the weight of the carrier together and then determine if it is under the tongue weight capacity of the hitch. If the carrier, # UF48-979033, weighs 50 pounds and the bike 275, that adds up to 325 pounds. That 25 pound buffer is enough to use the 350 pound capacity hitch. However there is more movement at the back of of at RV or trailer, like being at the back of a school bus, so you will need to take every precaution to limit the movement of...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier and Anti-Rattle for Off-Roading with a 1992 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The shank on accessories that fit into your 2 in trailer hitch receiver are slightly smaller than 2 inches so there will always be some movement. What you will want to do is use an anti-rattle device. There are a couple of options that will work well to limit if not eliminate movement. Take a look at the Quiet Hitch, # RM-061. This is a simple yet very effective design. I included a video link showing how it works. Similarly we have the Blue Ox Hitch Immobilizer, # BX88224. It is a similar...

  • Can Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier, # UF48-979033, Be used at the Back of a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier, # UF48-979033, can be used at the back of an RV or trailer as long as you have a 2 inch trailer hitch. If your bumper has a hitch then you need to consult the owners manual or trailer manufacturer to determine if it is rated for the combined weight of the carrier (about 50 pounds) and your bike. If you need to install a trailer hitch I recommend a frame mounted hitch, see link. Frame mounts are much safer and overall a better choice for this application. You...

  • Can Movement of Bikes and Bike Carrier be Eliminated on Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Carriers
  • On any trailer hitch mounted bike carrier, especially platform style carriers such as # PS63134 there is going to be some movement of the carrier in the hitch receiver. Its just physics at work! There are things you can do to keep movement to a minimum. Some bike carriers will have a threaded hitch pin that pulls the shank of the carrier tight to the inside of the receiver. These will eliminate some movement but not all. So the solution is to use a secondary anti-rattle device. If you...

  • Anti-Rattle Device for a 2013 Cadillac SRX with Class III Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch
  • The Class III Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87573 for your 2013 Cadillac SRX can use the J-Pin stabilizer, # 63201, which doubles as a lock. But it works best for side to side movement and not so much for up and down movement. For something that is going to work side to side and up and down I recommend the Blue Ox hitch immobilizer # BX88224. With this device tightened down it is going to take out the play of accessories up and down, left to right, sideways, frontways, backways, and across...

  • Stopping Bike Rack Movement in Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Mazda CX-9
  • The Blue Ox Immobilizer, # BX88224, should work well for you despite the limited clearance between the top of the receiver and the rear fascia on your 2014 Mazda CX-9. I have included a link to a video review for you. Keep in mind that you will not be able to completely eliminate movement of a hitch mount bike rack, especially when it is loaded. To limit the movement as much as possible using anti-rattle with a stabilization strap, such as # 18050, will work the best.

  • Will Blue Ox 2 Hitch Immobilizer II Fit a Roadmaster Receiver

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for a Factory Trailer Hitch on a 2012 Chevy Suburban
  • Only certain trailer hitches are J-Pin compatible. The factory hitch on your new 2012 Chevy Suburban sounds like it is not a Draw-Tite J-Pin compatible hitch. You will not want to drill into the hitch because that could compromise the structural integrity of the hitch, make the capacity unknown, void the warranty, and make it unsafe to use. What I recommend is to use an anti-rattle device like the Blue Ox hitch immobilizer, # BX88224 or the Roadmaster quiet hitch, # RM-061. Either of...

  • How Much Play is there Between EZ Heavy Duty Adjustable Hitch with Combo Ball # AM3298 and Receiver
  • The EZ Heavy Duty Adjustable Hitch with Combo Ball # AM3298 is comparable to the other ball mounts that you have mentioned. Any ball mount or shank on an accessory is made with a certain amount of tolerance in the size of the shank. The differences are so small you probably would not be able to tell the difference. Shanks are made smaller than the receiver opening so that it is easy to insert and remove the accessory. The movement can be limited or in some cases eliminated using an anti...

  • Anti-Rattle Adapter For Utility Trailer On 2012 GMC Acadia
  • The Brophy Stabilizer Bracket, part # RHSB is designed for non-towing accessories to prevent shifting and rattling. I recommend the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer, part # BX88224. This fits 2 inch trailer hitches and with the U-bolt design eliminates the wobble and rattle that is so annoying as you said. I have attached a product review for the # BX88224 you can check out.

  • Could the Blue OX Hitch Immobilizer # BX88224 Work with a Weight Distribution System
  • I spoke with my contact at Blue Ox and he informed me that this Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II # BX88224 would work on any weight distribution system as long as the head of the weight distribution system has 1-1/2 inches to 2 inches of clearance to the opening of the hitch receiver. So as long as there is 1-1/2 - 2 inches of clearance from the head of the weight distribution system to the hitch opening you could use this # BX88224.

  • Thule T2 Bike Rack has Too Much Play in the Hitch Receiver
  • The Thule T2 916XTR bike rack has a nut welded to the inside of the shank so you would not be able to use a device such as # SR25880. If the Thule threaded hitch bolt and Snug Tite lock that came with the bike rack are not taking out enough of the play then I recommend adding a secondary anti-rattle device, # BX88224. This will take out play vertically and horizontally. Keep in mind that with any bike rack, especially heavy platform racks like the T2, there is going to be some movement...

  • Clarification Regarding Use and Ratings on RoadMaster Quite Hitch Anti-Rattle Device # RM-061
  • I believe I can help with the confusion on the qualities of the Road Master Quite Hitch # RM-061. The reason that this anti-rattle device can be used for flat towing and not trailers is because flat towing produces very little tongue weight. When towing a trailer there is vertical weight that puts torque pressure on the ball/ballmount/anti-rattle device which will elongate the U-bolt and basically make it unusable. The U-bolt is designed and rated with strength to withstand torque pressure...

  • Using an Anti-Rattle Device with a Weight Distribution System
  • If your Weight Distribution System has been properly set up, there should be no movement of the weight distribution shank in the receiver, as the spring bars should be placing a substantial amount of tension on the shank against the walls of the receiver, thus keeping it firmly in place. The tension applied would be much greater than what a product like the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer would provide. If you are experiencing the rattle when using the weight distribution head to tow...

  • Hitch Adapter To Help Reduce Excessive Play With Attached Carrier On 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • If the hitch on your 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe has a 2 inch receiver, I recommend the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II, part # BX88224. This adapter has a bracket along with 2 U-bolts that will reduce the the sway and rocking motion you are experiencing with your carrier. The reviews we have received for this adapter have been very positive. The Road Master Quiet Hitch, part # RM-061 you mentioned is for flat-towing only and would not be suitable for your needs.

  • How to Prevent a 12 Inch Receiver Hitch Extension From Rattling in Receiver
  • Adding an extension introduces another component in between the receiver and the ballmount or hitch accessory. Because of this, getting a certain amount of wobble is unavoidable. If you're using the extension for a hitch mounted accessory, you can use an anti-rattle device like part # BX88224. However, keep in mind that using an extender will lower the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent. If you'll be towing, you'd be better off using a longer ball mount, if the longer...

  • Ball Mount Installed in 2014 Toyota Venza Factory Hitch Fits Loosely
  • Sometimes factory-installed (OEM) hitches can have slightly different dimensions and tolerances than the aftermarket products from companies like Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, etc. As long as you are using the correct 2-inch size ball mount in your 2-inch factory hitch you can address your fit concern with an anti-rattle device. The linked page will show you all such products that will fit your 2-inch hitch. These are offered in both locking and non-locking types. For a locking anti-rattle...

  • Anti-Rattle Device and Hitch Cover for a 2013 GMC Acadia Denali with Factory Installed Trailer Hitch
  • The Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer and Cover # 63080 is not for use on OEM (factory) hitches. But we have other anti-rattle devices and hitch covers that you can use with your 2013 GMC Acadia Denali. For accessories with hollow shanks I recommend the SilentACT locking pin and anti-rattle device # SHP2082. It features a cam lever that makes tightening the pin easier than using a wrench like on similar models. For accessories that have a solid shank I recommend the Hitch Immobilizer...

  • Anti-Rattle for a Bike Carrier and Hitch Extender on a 2012 Nissan Rogue
  • We do have anti-rattle devise that you could use but you need to know that the use of a hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. The Class III hitches for your 2012 Nissan Rogue have tongue weight capacities of 300 to 350 pounds. The reduced capacity from using an extender, such as # HE06, would take that down to 150 to 175 pounds, depending on the hitch. This means the combined weight of your Swagman XTC4, # S64665 at 60 pounds, and...

  • Anti-Rattle Device for 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe SE
  • If you are using a hollow-shank accessory item in your Curt hitch # C13153, such as cargo carrier # C18153, you can use an anti-rattle lock like # 63232. This fits inside the shank and both locks and stabilizes the carrier. If you prefer a u-bolt style anti-rattle we offer the Blue Ox # BX88224 which stabilizes hitch-mounted items in both vertical and horizontal directions. Roadmaster offers their similar # RM-061. All universal anti-rattle kits for 2-inch hitches are linked for you. We...

  • Can Blue Ox Hitch Immobilizer, # BX88224, Be Used with Weight Distribution and 800lbs Tongue Weight
  • A coworker of mine had a similar question and you can use the Blue Ox Hitch Immobilizer, # BX88224, with a weight distribution shank as long as the head of the weight distribution system has 1-1/2 inches to 2 inches of clearance to the opening of the hitch receiver. Besides that the weight should not be an issue but you will need to check the tightness of the nuts from time to time because they can loosen.

  • Eliminating Movement of Thule Parkway Bike Rack in Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2011 Toyota Highlander
  • The threaded hitch bolt that comes with Thule Parkway bike rack # TH956 needs to be tight when installed to limit the movement of the rack. The bolt engages a weld nut inside the shank of the bike rack and pulls it tight against the inside of the receiver. With 4 bikes loaded, due to the distance of the 4th bike from the receiver, you will not be able to completely eliminate the movement. You aren't going to lose the rack or anything as long as you have the hitch bolt installed all...
