Don't be fooled by its size. This little wonder has a big job. The Hitch Wedge performs double duty by holding your hitch gear tightly and providing extra security for the hitch pin. Hitch racks will stand stone cold solid with the Hitch Wedge. Install it and forget about it.
Note: Will not work with trailer hitch locks that sit flush against the outside of the hitch receiver. Will not work on Ford Edge and 2011 GMC Terrain vehicles with a factory installed 1-1/4" trailer hitch.
Video of No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge for 1-1/4" and 2" Trailer Hitches by Boone Outdoor Hardware

Today we're going to review part number 93347. This is the Boone No Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge that will fit 1-3/4 inch and 2 inch trailer inches. This is a very little part but don't be fooled. It does a very big job. This Hitch Web will perform double duty by holding your ball mount or your shank for your hitch accessory tightly and then providing extra security for the hitch pin. It serves as a hitch gear stabilizer.
Basically this black part right here is a wedge that will wedge itself between the receiver and the shank that's going into your hitch receiver to take up play and eliminate irritating rattle. This part right here, the bolt with the circle on it, that will hold your hitch pin tight. It is very easy to use and less expensive than some of the other stabilizers. It doubles as an anti-theft device. This black part is made of a carbon steel construction. Again, this is designed to fit an inch and a quarter and 2 inch trailer hitches.
Just to give you an idea. I have a sample. This is what the end of your hitch receiver would look like on your vehicle. I have an example of a ball mount here. Again it will work with ball mounts.
It will also work with like a bike rake or cargo carrier so when you put the shank in there and the pin in, you would hook it up the same way. For this demonstration I'm going to use the ball mount. You normally slide this into your hitch receiver. Line the holes up, put your hitch pin through and you put your clip on and you're ready to go. If you notice, there's normally play. As you can see in the ball mount here, and there's play usually you can see in the hitch pin.
Basically what this wedge would do is I'm going to take the clip off just to give you an idea. Once you've installed it this far, you would take this black part and as you can see the short side right here has a double edge to it. That is the part that would go into the play area right here in your hitch receiver between the ball mount and your hitch receiver. Then you would line - you'd loosen this half inch nut all the way out to where you could line this up with your hitch pin just like this. Then slide your hitch pin through. Go ahead and put your clip back on just like that. Then what you would do is go ahead and tighten this half inch nut down. As you tighten that down, that short end with the double edge will actually wedge itself between the shank that's in there and it pulls when it tightens it pulls upon this hitch pin. When it does that, there would be no movement on your ball mount or your shank of your hitch accessory. Then since it's pulling on this hitch pin, there would be no movement on the hitch pin. This little part does a double duty job there - very nice application. That should do it for the review on part number 93347, the Boone No Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge for 1-3/4inchand 2 inch trailer hitches. .

The package comes saying that it will work with all 2" adapters and some 1-1/4" adapters. I have a 1-1/4" adapter and the product doesn't do a whole lot. Because the tolerance is so small on the smaller adapter the wedge really doesn't fit into the "crack" between the receiver and square post. I adapted it some by grinding the wedge to a finer point and it will at least point into the crack. It does stop some of the movement when tightened down but not a whole lot. The problem with the design is that the post sticks several inches into the receptacle and you are trying to stop movement way toward the front. It just creates a better pivot point where it lock against the post but it will still move back and forth from the "play" 2 or 3 inches inside. I tried to tighten it down more to make it stop but it just started bending the clamp at a certain point. I would say this will work for you well only if you have a 3/16" inch gap between your post and our receptacle. ...but again...maybe it is just because I have a smaller hitch. It was worth the gamble because there are not a lot of options for the smaller hitches. I will use it to stop some of the play unless I can find a better solution. Good luck. 119650

etrailer is really great to buy from. unfortunately the anti-rattle device only woeked half way. it silenced the rattle( rattle is a mild description of the noise ) in the lateral side-ways movement but not the up an down motion. I've never noticed hitch rattle before with pick up trucks. the Honda Accord has a sonic reverberator right over the hitch assembly. it' called the trunk. i'm screwed. 130989

This hitch went on my 03 Ranger even easier than anticipated. Even though the instructions said (and I was prepared to) to drill a hole in the frame using the hole in the hitch bracket as a guide, my Ranger had the hole already in the frame so it was just a matter of bolting it up to the frame after removing the old bolts and J-nuts. On the Ranger there was lots of room to get my hands up to put the bolts in place and tighten the nuts. It took about an hour but that was only because I did not have another set of hands while laying on my back under the truck to help put the hitch in place. It went on much easier than the one I put on my 07 Nissan Murano. On the Murano I had to bend the bracket on the hitch several times to make the holes line up. I was told by customer service that this was typical on 80% of the hitches. 12225

Sorry I have ordered from etrailer before and always been very happy. I would say this product should be clearly labeled as a second choice and only to be used if you have a solid shank attachment. It did practically nothing for my application even modified wedge to fit in better but no help. I called and got the internal hitch with pin and it is infinitely better.I should have called first but the wedge was highly touted on the site and that is my only suggestion....possibly make it clear that the internal pin is so much more effective if you can use it as was explained when I called .. Thanks . the wedge was inexpensive so I did not pay to ship it back...have other great e trailer products! 186554

I bought 2 sets of these for my 2 vehicles. It states that they fit all 2" receivers and most 11/4" receivers. Well on my 2012 ford edge with a 2" receiver, it doesnt even comr close to fitting. On my 2007 jeep grand cherokee with a 1 1/4 " receivers it still doesnt come close to fitting. These are both factory installed hitches. I wonder if you should be so free about statements made about fitting all hitches. Obviousley they dont. The problem is the offset. It is too little, and not enough threads on shank to tighten. I definetly would not recommend this product, unless you want to be like me with 2 useless products now in my possesion. 140998

Work very well for highway use I used these on an extension hitch of 41" for my Lance camper overhang. Used 1 on each receiver for lateral movement and chain turnbuckles for vertical movement. This combination along with a 1500 lb. trailer pulls great on the highway. I would not expect the same results if I tore off down a logging road like a bat out of hell. If used with fairly constant hitch weight on fairly even surface and one not two devices (not enough room) to press hitch against the opposite wall of receiver it will surely keep the tail from wagging the dog while going down the highway. 3254
I bought this wedge after watching the video thinking it would solve the rattle with my ball hitch. The video shows the wedge fully inserted between the receiver and the hitch, but after reading the reviews, which were the majority stating that it only goes in a little bit and if you tighten it up too much the wedge would bend. So I decided to buy a clamp style product which I thought would work better. I should have read the reviews before I bought it, because the video is a little deceptive. The hitch seems smaller about a couple of inches out of the receiver. Item was returned. 178993

After a bit of struggling on my part to find the right item to fit my vehicle, Pat at eTrailer was extremely helpful. She walked me through the options personally on the phone and helped me select the No Rattle Trailer Hitch. After placing the order, Pat kept in touch with me via email with updates, and since the product was back-ordered, she kept me up to date on the shipping status. I couldn't be happier with that kind of one-on-one personal service! Thanks, Pat and eTrailer! 215187
No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge for 1-1/4 and 2 Trailer Hitches by Boone Outdoor Hardware . Dont waste your money. Didnt wedge at all just kept popping out. The bolt bent the more you tightened it. Didnt remove any slop out of the hitch.I would not buy again. Tried stacking washers, even grinding down the wedge, product just dosent work. Waste of money in my opinion. I have purchased a lot from etrailer and always had great service, this is just a poorly designed part. 138027
After reading other reviews it's apparent that this accessory either works great or it's useless. I gambled my $8 and lost. It's useless in my application. I'm attempting to stabilize a solid shank Rola cargo carrier to my Torklift 1-1/4" EcoHitch. There's just enough play in the carrier to be annoying but not enough for the wedge to fit into the receiver. I estimate that the wedge won't fit any gap tighter than the thickness of a credit card. 117082

The quality of the device is excellent, however it does not work as fabricated with my 1-1/4" receiver hitch. The dimension from my pin centerline to the face of the receiver is too short, and I am unable to tighten the nut. Product description says that it works with MOST 1-1/4" hitches. It would be nice if the Website identified a minimum dimension that is required for it to work. I will attempt to modify the fabrication to make it function. 167330

Cheap because they don't work I bought 2 of these for my hitch to keep my hitch ball and bike rack from rattling while going down rough bumpy roads and they didn't help at all. They are hard to adjust and don't fit right, they only are designed to stop side to side rattle and not up and down rattle that the get with a single axle trailer or a bouncing bike rack. I would not recommend these and should of spend more for a better designed product. 2921

This item doesn't work at all for my setup. There isn't enough of a gap for the wedge to fit into, so once I attempt to tighten it, it just slips out. So there is still play in my 1 1/4" hitch to 1 1/4" to 2" adapter. There just isn't enough play for this device to fit into it. I'm sure it would work fine if there was more of a gap to work with. I may attempt to grind the wedge to a knife sharp edge and maybe that will grab. 103701
With my 1 7/8" Curt hitch I had to grind the angle to a little more extreme and narrow it just a touch to make it work, but work it did after that. Seems to lock the hitch in nice and firm and should prevent any rattles, which is what it is supposed to do. Would have rated it higher if I didn't have to mess with it, and it could be a bit heftier. All in all its a good product especially considering Etrailer's price point. 133933
Just put it on to give it a try. It was real easy to put on. I wish I had ordered this piece prior to my recent trip. It appears to stop the swaying. We'll see in about 3 weeks when we drive out to San Diego with bikes in tow on the rack how it functions. I do feel a noticeable difference already by the snugness when I tightened it on the connector. I feel good about the potential result. Stay tuned. 68240
This device helped the vibration some, but did not correct the vertical vibration even though I tightened the nut on the device as much as possible. It did strop the horizontal vibration; thereby, helping some with my problem. I will continue to use it, but will have to "wedge" something between the female and male component of the trailer hitch to prevent vertical movement. 217107
by: Harvey H.01/16/2013
Simple design that works well and is not too cumbersome to use... doesn't make it rock solid but makes the rattling go away... I use it for a cargo carrier, receiver mounted winch, and a road feeder... Don't over tighten, the black hardend steel wedge can break...but that was my fault, was trying to make it rock soild, which is not its design. Also slows down theft... 63264
by: Alex F06/25/2013
This little doodad is useless. It will only work if you have a 2" hitch with gratuitous amounts of side to side slop and even then, it will still have up and down play. Do yourself a favor and purchase one of those bolt type silencing pins. I know I wasn't expecting much, but seriously I feel foolish for buying a $20 bent I-hook and steel L bracket. 86130
by: Scott, A.08/15/2011
Installed per the picture, and video on site. tighten it down, but still rattled. Did not work with my Curt hitch, also ordered from etrailer. The cluncking is a bit unnerveing with these "wonderful" Chicagoland roads!!! Back to looking for the one that fits over the shank of the drawn accessory, for the 1 1/4" shank. 21952
by: Dale H09/10/2014
It seems like a good idea at a reasonable price, but it will only work if you have a lot of play in your receiver hitch. If your hitch doesn't have at least a 3/16th inch gap between the ball mount shaft and the receiver, spend a few dollars more and buy the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver (63232), which works well. 150587
by: Rodney H.10/27/2013
Item looks like it'd work great, but the wedge is too thick to even fit into the gap between my hitch and receiver. So I couldn't even use it. Ended up buying a square U-bolt from a local hardware store, similar to the ones you'll see on this site for larger receivers. That took care of the excessive rattling for me. 105346
This wedge was not effective in fitting between trailer hitch opening and my 1.25 inch bar. The wedge tip was too thick thus not fitting tight. In addition, tightening of the bolt to try to get it to insert more effectively resulted in the screw threads to wear and slip. I would return but not worth shipping costs. 18842
by: Jeremiah D.06/24/2011
This hitch accessory worked on my 1 1/4" hitch, it reduced greatly but did not stop rattle. I added a lock washer to reduce chance of loosening. It was easy to install but very difficult to remove, having wedged into the hitch (as designed). Service from etrailer was excellent! Item arrived sooner than promised. 17853
Good concept, but it did not fit my 1 1/4 inch hitch, it could have if it had three or four more screw threads. It said on the package that it fits "most 1 1/4 hitches". If only if had those last screw threads, but I think I can find an eye hook that has the right amount of screw threads I can make it work. 134305
by: John H.10/03/2013
I found this to be next to useless. It may reduce the side-to-side movement of the cargo carrier, but not so I could notice. I tightened it enough to bend it, but still no noticeable reduction in the movement. The up and down movement of the carrier was totally unaffected by this 'wedge'. 102468
Good concept, but you need a receiver that is poorly made before it will work. The gap in my receiver wasn't wide enough for the device to work, even after grinding the edge down. Do not buy this device, unless you can see at least 1/8th inch gap in the receiver. 149727
I'm terribly disappointed in this product. I hoped it would work. However, it has good intentions on paper, but in function, needs a lot of refinement. The more I tightened it, the more the wedge cocked to an angle. It doesn't pull tension straight back. 71360
by: Erwin P.04/13/2015
Very pleased with the product. Easy to install. Kept bike rack tight and secure. Product was delivered just on time for our trip to Yosemite and Fresno. I would highly recommend buying products at Etrailer.com. 184932
by: Don P.04/08/2012
Instructions are on the skimpy side, but any slightly mechanically inclined (i.e., can change your own oil) should figure it out. Bracket it is easy to bend and care must be taken not to overtorque the nut. 36543
Product would not work with my 11/4 hitch and receiver. Should have listened to other reviews of this item. Could not get it to wedge between receiver and hitch. Inexpensive so not much lost. 71830
by: Michael B.07/31/2011
I purchased the - 6500 20x48 cargo carrier for a 1 1/4 inch hitch. It was just what I was looking for. It is easy to use and is very quiet. I would recommend my carrier with five stars. 20629
by: Mik C10/01/2015
works as advertised ! and if it works to help steady this spare , it oughta work for you . This is my home made spare tire carrier ....no pic of it on , but this is what is now steady 228851
by: Frank S06/02/2014
I have installed one on the RV and so far the install was easy and straight forward. Using it today on the e350 van. Concept is simple and it has taken the "slack" out of the hitch. 133689
by: mICHAEL R03/10/2014
THIS DEVICE WAS DELIVERED RIGHT ON TIME AND IT WORKS ALMOST PERFECTLY,ONLY PROMBLEM IS IT FITS SO GOOD YOU HAVE TO PRY IT OFF WHEN YOU ARE DONE,BUT AM SATISFIED WITH IT. THANKS. 120144
by: Ray G.07/04/2014
This product will not control up and down movement between the insert and the receiver. If you have noise from up and down movement this product will not correct that. 139183
by: Ralph B.08/16/2013
Its a nice product for the price. It does work and I use it for tailgating. Etrailer is a great source to buy it from because of their service and quick shipments. 95453
by: Bill R.04/09/2015
The device did address the horizontal movement of a bike rack attached to the hitch--it does not curtail the vertical play in the hitch. Overall, it has helped. 184353
by: Lee F.06/06/2014
I couldn't get it to work. The leg was bit short and couldn't get it to the void in the receiver the wedge was to thick to stay in. Just kept twisting off. 134525
by: albert c.05/22/2014
Quality is excellent, and should work well although I haven't used it yet. Service from etrailer was very good, quick shipping and good communication. 131853
Good item for the price. It makes the ride more quiet . Easy to install. Do not over torque the nut or it will start to bend the metal plate. 132388
To be honest the products did not work at all- the did not stabilize any extra Tolerance in the hitch, and when tightened the eye bolt bent- 147670
by: Glenn Friesen08/15/2013
Wedge was too thick to fit into my hitch properly, tightening it just bent the black metal, and did not eliminate the slop in the hitch. 95218
by: Norm W08/09/2011
Looked al over for something like this. I never found anything tahat east to install that worked like it said it should. Thanks etrailer 21477
took care of 100% of the left to right motion of the draw bar on my 1-1/4" draw bar, but only about 50% of the up and down motion. 220061
by: Dave G.06/03/2014
Did not work for my class II receiver. I had to grind it down so it would fit, but it still worked free. Don't waste your money. 133929
by: Jim B.08/20/2012
Excellent customer service, fast delivery, top quality product and Excellent fit. So what's not to like? I'd highly recommend. 52396
by: Tim W06/21/2015
Hitch receiver wedge works rather nice, silence the looseness in the play that you get from about all hitches that I have seen 205996
need to put it on the pin side so it doesn't slide around. It reduces the movement between my 1 1/2" hitch and my 2" adapter. 106903
Broke while installing Great concept, but not very strong material. 100lb. wife tried to tighten and bracket broke in half. 1826
