Create a stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.
The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.
To determine the proper weight rating for a weight distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system.
Unlike other weight distribution systems, the SwayPro has automatically locking brackets throughout. Both spring bars insert, slotted side up, into the head assembly and then lock securely in place. Removal is just as easy - simply lift the locking pins on the trunnions and slide the bars out.
Other systems have lift brackets that require you to apply a good amount of leverage to get them to snap up, which can be difficult and frustrating. With the SwayPro, all you have to do is insert the lift chain into the bracket slot and rotate the bracket with the included wrench until the lock pin engages.
Another feature of the SwayPro is the easy-to-use head. The required pitch is already built into the head, so the only adjustment that may be needed is the placement of the head on the shank. Move the head up or down along the weight distribution shank to achieve the proper height. No additional, fine-tune adjustment is needed, which means no hard-to-access washers or difficult-to-use thumbscrew.
The SwayPro offers four points of built-in sway control. Within the head assembly, the trunnions are designed to hold the spring bars securely in position, placing just enough tension on them to cause them to constantly force your trailer in line. At the other end of this weight distribution system, the rotating brackets ensure that the lift chains are pulled as taut as possible. In addition, the basic design of the brackets keeps much of the length of the lift chains wrapped up inside of the brackets. Typically, only a couple of links hang down from each bracket. So each chain is held more stable than in traditional weight distribution systems, where more than twice as many links are exposed. This tight, stable design limits the movement of the spring bars so that they can exert more force on your trailer to effectively keep it from shifting side to side. Furthermore, unlike many friction-style sway controls, the SwayPro allows you to back up your trailer without having to remove or disengage the system.

SwayPro utilizes the latest in weight-distributing technology, with built-in sway control, to be the most user-friendly hitch on the market. The SwayPro is geometrically optimized and computer-designed to provide superior weight distribution and sway control without the need of friction or adjustment. With just one look at the SwayPro, you can see our commitment to quality and durability. SwayPro's innovative and unique features combine everything you're looking for in a weight-distribution hitch. Available in multiple tongue capacities, the SwayPro is the last hitch you will ever need to buy. Should you ever trade trailers, simply purchase the appropriate spring bars, and that's it.
There's no need to replace the entire hitch. The SwayPro truly is the pro when it comes to weight distribution and sway control. Each component of the SwayPro is designed with the user in mind. Let's start by examining the hitch head. The SwayPro hitch head is full of features you'll appreciate. The open design of the head allows for easy access to tighten the hitch ball.
No serrated washers, no cans, no shim packs, means a faster installation. Sway control is built into the head. No adjustments are needed. Unlike friction sway controls that only try to slow down the trailer wanting to sway and never return it to a straight line behind the tow vehicle, with the SwayPro's built-in sway control, the trailer is brought back to the center and keeps going straight. Once the trailer tries to sway from one side to another, it will load one bar more than the other, applying more pressure to that side, and making the trailer go back to its center position. This eliminates the need for the friction bolts, and results in a quiet and smooth ride.
Grease is captured inside the spring bar head to eliminate messy spring bar ends and the need for plastic bags to cover the bar. The hitch head can be moved up or down the hitch mount receiver with ease to lower or raise coupler height on the trailer. Next, let's look at the spring bars of the SwayPro. The round bars flex for optimal weight distribution and clearance. SwayPro's self-locking spring bars eliminate the need for additional pins and clips. Simply rotate the spring bar 90 degrees, and it automatically locks into place.
As mentioned earlier, you'll also notice there's no grease on the ends of the spring bars, thanks to our greaser. The deflection of the spring bars allows for a smoother, cushioned ride, and activates the sway control. Next, let's examine the Signature Series Rotating Latch. Most hitches on the market today utilize snap-up chain brackets, which allow the chain to sway freely. The Signature Series Rotating Latch brackets' wrap-around design secures the chain, eliminating sway. The Signature Series Latch not only allows you to hook up more quickly and with less hassle than traditional snap-up methods, but also allows you to back up without having to disconnect. The Signature Series Rotating Latch eliminates noise, and is quieter than other weight-distribution hitches. No banging and popping. Additionally, the Signature Series Latch provides the clearance necessary for enclosed trailer frames, propane bottles, and battery compartments, not available with snap-up brackets. Simply clamp or bolt the hitch to your trailer frame, place the chains into the latch, then rotate the latch with the latch tool until it self-locks into place. Bolt-on latches can be used if there is interference on top of the trailer tongue. To disconnect, pull out and release the bracket lock, rotate the latch with the latch tool, and remove the chains. It really is just that easy. There are two models of SwayPro available, one for standard trailer couplers and one specifically designed for under-slung couplers. Both are available with clamp-on and bolt-on latch options. The SwayPro has very little maintenance. It is the last weight-distributing hitch you will ever need. The SwayPro is easy to install, and there is no need to readjust the pitch. If you switch trailers, all you may need is new spring bars, not a new hitch. All those features in one hitch. No additional parts or options to purchase. Why trust an amateur, when you can go with the pro The SwayPro weight-distribution hitch from Blue Ox is so easy to use and adjust, you'll thank yourself every time you tow. .

I replaced a broken old Eaz-lift hitch with this one on a 10k cargo trailer. The difference in ride quality is night and day. Well worth the step up in price. I feel like I'm driving a Cadillac compared to before. Set-up was easy, instructions were clear and concise. I greatly enjoyed not having to set the angle as it is built in. (Less to adjust, less that can go wrong/break). I do a lot of backing up at sharp angles as I use my trailer for food deliveries in tight spaces behind small restaurants/stores. I've not had any issues with this hitch while doing so. My load weights also vary greatly from beginning to end of day (full vs. empty). It is as smooth empty as it is full. The bars have a broad tongue weight rating range which works great for my application! I've not had it long enough to comment on long-term durability, but it is built tough and engineered smart. I expect it to last as long as I do. You get what you pay for. Great product! 172406

I have been using the Blue Ox SwayPro WD Hitch for 1,500 tongue weight on our 30' Arctic Fox travel trailer for one year now. No regrets as this hitch has been an easy to setup and use and it seems to do it's job nicely. Due to the height of our trailer's hitch I ordered a Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank to use with the SwayPro and the pair work great together. 135639

Excellent company and product. After dealing with in my opinion less than professional dealership sending me on the road with a hitch setup at half the weight capabilities of what was required I was very pleased at the service and speed of delivery of this product. The installation of the hitch was simple and i quickly installed the hitch at about $200 savings from a supposed rock bottom price of the dealer. I feel safe now Great work etrailer Poor work Dick Gore 178002
Blue Ox hitch was relatively easy to install and set up. Haven't had a chance to get on the road with it but from another I know it should do just fine. Customer Service was great. They got me all the things I wanted but didn't find on the website. Hitch arrived in less than a week. Jena checked with me a couple of times to make sure I was satisfied and ask if I had any questions. 193595
