Video Transcript for Equal-i-zer Thin Walled Socket Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Equal-i-zer Thin Walled Socket for Equal-i-zer Hitches, part number EQ70-00-4800. Traditional sockets particularly when tightening a ball to your weight distribution system have a hard time getting in to where they need to be. The Equal-i-zer socket with its low profile thin wall drops right into place. As you can see here, we have a traditional socket here on the left with a thicker wall and on the right, we have our Equal-i-zer socket with a thin wall. Though it has a thin wall, it's just as sturdy as your traditional sockets. It's a twelve-point socket with a three quarter inch drive so you need to be sure that your torque wrench has a three quarter inch drive or you may need an adapter. Now we'll go in and show you how to use it.

We've got our hitch ball and our weight distribution system here. We're going to flip around over to gain access to our nut. Our Equal-i-zer socket is just going to drop right down in place. Now we can grab our torque wrench. You want to set your torque wrench to whatever your manufacturer recommends for your hitch ball.

Now we'll need to immobilize the other side of the ball. It's not a bad idea to get an extra set of hands to do so. Perfect. Now we can just flip it back over and continue setting up our weight distribution system. If this we're just a standard ball mount, we'd be ready to tow.

That's going to complete our look at the Equal-i-zer Thin Walled Socket for Equal-i-zer Hitches, part number EQ70-00-4800.

This socket is pretty much necessary to install a ball on the Equal-i-zer hitch head. I also had to source a 3/4 drive extension for my torque wrench to clear the head, which was an unexpected expense (not to mention a hard to find part!). It's pricey, especially for something you're likely to only use once as a hobbyist RV owner, but it's in-line with other similar tools, and it's getting harder and harder to find RV shops willing to take on little jobs like torquing a ball to a hitch head. Other than that, it's a socket. It did it's job, and held up to over 400 lb/ft with no issues. 467433

Part arrived on time and is correct. Customer service reps (Shawn and Patrick) were very knowledgeable and very, very helpful. They need more help on the phones -- very long waits for service. 261957

Immediately after placing the order I was notified the product was not in stock and I was given an expected ship date. I was updated several times during my wait and to my surprise the package showed up a few days earlier than expected. I haven't yet installed the item but it arrived in good condition even though one box was broken open due to the weight of the items inside. Luckily all contents were accounted for. Product is very sturdy and in great condition with no scratches or shipping damage. Excellent customer service in keeping me informed on a delivery date. Have purchased before from etrailer and will continue to recommend in the future. 349954

What can I say...it's a standard 3/4" drive 1 7/8" socket. I actually did not need a thin walled socket to install the ball on my WD hitch (an impact socket would have worked), but that is only because of the design. It is always better to be over prepared when you start installing things, rather than find out you need to now go buy a tool to finish the install. If you are looking at this product then it is probably because you need to install a ball with a 1 1/4" shank. Make certain you have a torque wrench that can handle it (450 ft lb). Don't "gun it down" with an impact gun because the torque from them (if you have it set) is plus or minus 25% on a good day. Since this is a critical connection, do it right. 525701

I am very pleased with my Equal-i-zer Sway Control hitch. Installation was relatively easy. You really do need the thin wall socket to install the ball. Levels my 3/4 ton truck out very well with my loaded 14,000 lb bumper pull trailer. Main reason I got it was for the sway control for 1000 mile trips. It amazes me. Jerk the trailer one direction and it comes back to the middle and stops. Very nice! 558104

by:

It is what it is - a 1 7/16th socket but it solves the problem (regular sockets won't fit into the hitch to tighten up the trailer ball on equal-i-zer hitches because they are too thick. Pricey at $60, but I am not one to take an existing socket and grind it down. Just not worth it to me. Item was shipped promptly, as usual, by etrailer. 596670



- EQ70-00-4800

I Never would have paid $68 for a single socket if I wasn't surprised dealing with this on short notice!? Really, open the box read the directions and read- now you need to buy a special 1-7/8" socket. My 250# torque wrench cost me less than this single socket... this is something that should be included in the weight distribution hitch packaging. I won't be promoting this to any other Airstream or travel trailer owners, except to warn them of the impending ripped-off. Terrible product marketing. No excuse for this. 463739

Its a socket, plain and simple 6 sided socket. but a regular socket does not fit in area where large fastener is located on equalizer hitch. An on the ball engineer could have designed hitch and access to fastener so regular socket would fit, but then you wouldn't need to buy an accessory to install hitch would you. 329833


Comments

Its still a socket Which once youve setup the hitch for your tow vehicle to trailer is not needed. As long as ball size change is not required socket is not used. Find a mechanic who has the tools and pay them to tighten ball hitch.

The 12k Equalizer Weight Distribution Hitch is an AWESOME product and did all it said it would do. Bombed hills, kept my ride steady, and most important kept my family safe on the SoCal/NorCal roads more than 28 hrs of driving north to the redwoods @ Jedidiah Smith then back south again. Next trip coming up quick in a week getting ready for another adventure. With the new EQ WDH set up is a snap! Thank you etrailer Team for all the help and great pricing!

***OVERPRICED*** I’m disappointed that etrailer allows people to spend $75 on this socket when it’s nothing special. I can’t even tell that its an Equal-izer brand as there are no special tags or logos on either the bag or the socket. It came in a standard clear baggy, no branding whatsoever. Disount Harware store repack??? Fitting it, it doesn’t even look like the right size. It sits very sloppy on the nut and makes it look like it could strip. Comparing it to another 1 7/8” it is a standard 1 7/8” socket. Save your money! 613634

Ordered a new Curt truck hitch along with the 14k Equalizer WD. Ordered at 8pm Monday and recieved 11:30am Weds. Can't get better free shipping than that! Boxes a bit beat up but no damage to parts. Parts are heavy, so not suprised. Hitch was installed in an hour and is a perfect fit but wish it had provisions for plug mount. I knew this when I ordered though. Devin took my order was very friendly and helped with everything I asked about. Will install the Equalizer next week but it looks like what was advertised and should do the job. Will use etrailer again for sure. 448181

I ordered this because the web site specified this socket was needed to attach the ball to a 6000 lb Equalizer hitch. However, a smaller socket is required for a ball that matches the hitch capacity (2") so it did not work. You should inform people that if you buy a smaller ball then a smaller thin wall socket is needed. 410824

I installed the 12,000 lb. Equalizer myself. the instructions were explicit. After thoroughly reading the instructions, the installation took a little over an hour. I took my Travel trailer for a short ride, about 40 miles round trip. It was a windy day although I was extremely impressed with the performance of the 4 point sway hitch and cannot believe the difference between that and my old hitch with the chain and sway bar system. Money well spent. Looking forward to going across country in a few months. 243958

  • Brake Controller Installation in 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
  • For your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica with tow package, I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 for a brake controller. It has a really nice LCD screen to make it user friendly and has preset options for different trailer sizes for a good fit. You are correct that there is not a plug and play harness for your Pacifica, so it will need to be hardwired. If you don't already have a 4-way flat trailer connection, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Trailer With Total Tongue Weight Between 350 and 600 lbs
  • A weight distribution system that is rated too high for your total tongue weight of your loaded trailer and cargo behind the rear axle, can be an issue. You won't cause damage to your truck or trailer, but it can cause a rigid ride and in the worst cases can even cause the trailer to bounce which obviously means the traction isn't where it needs to be for proper control. Based on the info you gave, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion -...

  • Replacement Equalizer Weight Distribution Spring Bars to Increase Capacity
  • It is usually possible to replace the spring bars in a weight distribution hitch setup so long as the two sets of bars are the same type, both trunnion style for instance, and both are from the same generation of hitch. A 10-year-old setup may not be able to use current-model replacement spring bars. Based on your trailer dry hitch weight of 918-lbs (which I presume means the trailer's unloaded weight) bars rated for 1200-lbs may not be stiff enough. A properly-loaded 8800-lb trailer...

  • A weight distribution system will help with the sag you have at the rear of your 2014 Toyota Sienna when towing. As long as you have a hitch installed on your vehicle like the Draw Tite part # 76112 which is rated for WD use you'd be set. Since you have minimal ground clearance you'll want to go with a trunnion bar weight distribution system since they have superior ground clearance over the round bar setups. For that the Fastway e2 kit part # FA92-00-0450 would be a great option as...

  • Trailer Hitch, Brake Controller and Weight Distribution for 2019 VW Atlas
  • Yes, you can use a weight distribution system with your 2019 Volkswagen Atlas and to answer your other question, the Curt Echo Trailer Brake Controller # C51180 is a fantastic option. Before that you need to start with a trailer hitch that is compatible with a weight distribution system and for that you will need the Draw-Tite # 76176. This is a 2 inch hitch with a 900 lb tongue weight capacity and 6,000 lb towing capacity; it will be a great hitch for your Atlas because not only does...

  • Should Additional Transmission Cooler be Used When Towing at Max Capacity with 2014 Pathfinder
  • If you are planning on maxing out the 5,000 lb towing capacity of your 2014 Nissan Pathfinder then yes, it would be wise to install a supplemental transmission cooler like the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit # D13502. Since you will really be pushing your transmission to its limits this additional cooler will help to reduce some of the heat stress, but towing at max capacity will still be pretty rough on your vehicle.

  • Recommended Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution Hitch for Ice Castle Fish House Trailer
  • For your Ice Castle Fish House, the weight of the unit will determine what Equal-I-zer system will work best. A weight distribution system is based on the total tongue weight of the loaded trailer along with any cargo weight behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Because these trailers are fairly good sized, I'll give you a recommendation for a larger system. You want that total tongue weight to fall in the middle of the range of the system for best results.

  • Friction bar anti-sway systems work better on smaller and lighter trailers although doubling up with two units can work satisfactorily with some longer trailers. Still, the performance of an integrated weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) system will beat simple friction units any day of the week. I suggest you first install a properly-rated WD/SC system, before making mods to your truck's suspension, since you may find that you do not need the Superspring kit at all. The key to...

I do have a solution which could work for you, however. Since the TruTrack you asked about would be for a 900 lb total tongue weight I assume that you need a system with that tongue weight rating. The Equal-i-zer # EQ37120ET has brackets that can be positioned 27" - 32" from the center of the coupler. It...

  • I wish you would have asked this question prior to your purchase of the Curt Extender # C45791, because this extender will not work for your application. It is rated for the 3,500 lb total trailer weight towing capacity and because it is an adapter will also decrease your tongue weight rating of your trailer hitch by 50%. Instead, you may want to consider the Brophy Ball Mount for 2" Hitch # BH20. This ball mount is capable of towing 10,000 lbs and has a measurement of 13-1/4 inches...

This, as well as the other trailer hitches, exceeds the weight ratings of your Odyssey so you can be confident that you are getting the most out of the trailer hitch. Be sure to check the weight ratings of your Odyssey in your owner's manual and keep from exceeding it. To finish out your towing setup I recommend...

To find the TTW of your towing setup you will need to add the TW of your fully loaded and ready-to-go trailer along with the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle.

  • Trailer Hitch Rated for 10K Towing for a 2003 Dodge Sprinter with 140 inch Wheelbase and DRW
  • The Curt Class IV Trailer Hitch # 14250 will only fit if your 2003 sprinter has the 140 inch Wheelbase with Single Rear Wheels. Since you have a 140 inch Wheelbase with Dual Rear Wheels the next best option is the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch # 13265 which is rated for 6K Towing/600 lbs Tongue but then jumps up to 10K Towing/1K Tongue when used with a weight distribution (WD) system like the Equal-i-zer w/ 4-Point Sway Control # EQ37120ET. Please note that your Sprinter must be rated...

  • How to Select Weight Distribution System for Horse Trailer
  • For your 2018 Toyota Highlander, the Curt hitch that fits is # C13200 and this hitch is compatible with weight distribution systems.

  • Recommended Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System for 2018 Rockwood Roo 233s
  • For your 2018 Rockwood Roo 233s, the unloaded hitch weight is the 612 lbs you stated as the 4842 is also the unloaded weight. Based on the 1770 cargo capacity, that puts the trailer at a GVWR of 6612. Your unloaded tongue weight ratio is currently at just under 13%, so if you take that number and the GVWR, you get a loaded tongue weight of right around 850 lbs. You want your total tongue weight which includes your loaded tongue weight and any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System For Trailer With 600-lb Tongue Weight When Empty
  • The best way to determine what system will work for you is to know what your total tongue weight is. The total tongue weight is the tongue weight of your fully-loaded-ready-to-tow trailer added to the weight of any cargo you place behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. You will then want to find a system where your total tongue weight falls near the middle of the tongue weight range for the system. Getting a system that is too small will be useless, but getting a system that is too big...

  • Weight Distribution System Needed to Pull a 6,615 lb Trailer with a Ford F-150
  • There are a few variables that need to be added together to determine the correct weight distribution (WD) system for any towing setup. First of all you need to find the tongue weight (TW) of your loaded trailer. When loaded properly, the TW of a trailer should be 10-15% of the loaded weight of the trailer. You can find this with a TW scale like part # 5780 or one of the methods in the linked article. Once your loaded TW is known you then need to add the weight of any cargo that will...

  • Will Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Work For 2019 Coleman Light LX 1605FB Travel Trailer
  • The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control # FA94-00-0800 is a great option for your 2019 Coleman Light LX 1605FB, and I'll explain why. The ideal weight distribution with sway control system will be one in which your total tongue weight falls somewhere in the middle of the weight distribution system's tongue weight capacity. Total tongue weight (or TTW for short) is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the...

  • Ranking Weight Distribution Systems for 8,000 lb Trailer
  • Based on what you said and the photo you added a weight distribution system is absolutely the best route for your 2018 Ford F-150; air bags will help to a degree but would be a band-aid that would not remedy your situation. The prices would be similar depending on the weight distribution system you use, and if you added a compressor to air bags you are looking at something that would be more expensive and less effective than a weight distribution system. The correct weight distribution...

  • How to Choose the Correct Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
  • There is a way for you to determine which Equal-i-zer system is the right one for you but you will need to know your tongue weight with water and the amount of weight behind the rear axle of your truck. From what you described, if you loaded the water tank and added only some of the 200 lbs - 300 lbs weight behind the rear axle of your truck then you may be able to use the Equal-i-zer # EQ37140ET, which is rated for total tongue weights between 1,000 lbs and 1,400 lbs.
