Equal-i-zer Accessories and Parts - EQ95-01-5150

Minimize noise and reduce wear and tear on your Equal-i-zer sway-control brackets and spring bars with these unique, plastic sleeves. Designed for use with Equal-i-zer weight-distribution systems rated for 6,000 lbs to 14,000 lbs GTW.


Features:

  • Jackets slip onto the L-brackets of your Equal-i-zer weight-distribution system to limit steel-on-steel contact
    • Minimizes wear on sway-control brackets and spring bars
    • Creates a quieter towing system
  • Nylon construction is sturdy and durable
  • Application: 2" wide sway-control L-brackets of Equal-i-zer weight-distribution systems rated for 6,000 lbs - 14,000 lbs GTW
  • 2 Sway bracket jackets included
  • Made in the USA


Note: Using the sway bracket jackets on your sway-control brackets may slightly diminish the effectiveness of your Equal-i-zer system's integrated sway control. Although minimizing the steel-on-steel contact eliminates some of the noise that occurs when towing with the Equal-i-zer, it also limits the friction created when sway occurs and, therefore, the effectiveness of the integrated sway control.

I hated the noise from my equalizer hitch till i bought these pads. Adjust hitch properly and use these pads and its a whole new world. And they do not interfear with the function of the hitch. Highly recommend them. 579352

I ordered this shank by phone on Monday and spoke with Crystal. I informed her that I was planning a trip at the end of the week. Crystal could not promise me that the order would arrive by then, because I chose not to upgrade to expedite shipping due to cost. Crystal did say that she would get my order in ASAP to get it started. 3 days later my Shank was delivered to my door by UPS. Thanks Crystal for great customer service! I will be ordering from you again! 494363

Product is good. It will wear because torsion bars ride back and forth against when turning. The bad, these should come with hitch to begin with. The jackets will require replacement so Equalizer will get their future sale once worn out. Some people say their sway bars make a lot of noise these are the answer; get them. Also, do the maintenance on your hitch and grease will stop metal to metal contact (noise) 329835


Comments

Still functioning as required, but Not as much wear as I had anticipated. Theyll last awhile before replacement. I would still buy and use on hitch bars.

I was unable to use this part as I have the newer Equalizer brackets retainers that have a rotating spring clip which will not clear these jackets. This product can only be used with the older style of brackets retainers that use the pin and retaining pin underneath the L bracket. I returned the part for a refund. 79692


Comments

Weve contacted Equal-i-zer about these jackets. There was a short period when the L pins and jackets were not compatible. It has since been resolved and the jackets and pins have been updated and should now be compatible.

These pads, even with a little grease added, did not stop the horrible screeching from my Equalizer. However, adding grease to the pivot points back on the main hitch did make a huge difference. I'll still use these, though - seems silly to have metal-on-metal at the tips of the bars. (Other brands use similar friction pads as a standard part of the system.) By the way, adding the grease as described above did not noticeably reduce the anti-sway feature of the hitch, though to be fair, I use it for a car hauler rather than a large travel trailer, so sway was never a big issue anyway. 402373



- EQ95-01-5150
by:

Im not sure if it is 100% because of these but my hitch makes almost no noise now. I did grease the hitch pivots at the same time and loving how quiet everything is now. One of the better prices for this product as well. 433909


Comments

Still working good a year later

The Hitch its self is awesome I just docked it a star because of cheap hardware. The sway is minimal the truck rides great and level and with the pads for the L-brackets noise is minimal. Like many vendors their hardware is not up to the task. I had the washers on the 3/4 bolts that hold the Head to the shank literally disintegrate(they cracked in so many places it was like a spider web). Luckily they held till I got home then I got some Military spec washers and they seem to be doing fine. 429397



- EQ95-01-5150
by:

Easy to install-no tools and only seconds of time needed. Appearance wise it blends in with the metal brackets very well. We just tried these on a 280 mile round trip and they quieted the horrible screeching our Equalizer used to make on turns and uneven terrain down significantly. Key word..."significantly" not eliminated. You still will get some noise but it's no where near as loud or long lasting as it is with the metal on metal. It's much more tolerable with this add on jacket. It's worth the price to me for the value it adds. 229820

Great addition to an Equalizer WDH. Stops metal on metal contact/wear on the brackets and helps make the WDH quiet. But a spare pair... 578703



- EQ95-01-5150
by:

We've been using these for about a year now and have noticed a marked reduction in the "squeaking" the hitch makes when turning tight corners. There is still some noise as the bars move, but we don't turn nearly as many heads when we pull in and park. They show very little wear for all of the miles they've been installed which is a plus as we thought we'd be replacing them every year. 394498

Easy to install and cut down on the squeaks from the metal to metal before 423676


Comments

It does cut down on some of the noise but will not eliminate completely.

Products were delivered timely and as described. I haven't utilized them yet, but the install was intuitive. I don't see why these wouldn't decrease the over all noise output from the hitch. Any time you can reduce friction of metal to metal you are on a good path. 357016


Comments

Product is still excellent! 3/18. Purchase extra sets as you will wear them out, depending on the amount of use.

Great product, does exactly what it’s suppose to do as advertised. The product really saves wear and tear on metal to metal contact with sway bars. 558639



- EQ95-01-5150
by:

Went on two RV trips out West pulling a 27 ft. trailer, one with & one without the weight distribution hitch. There was no comparison. Without it, the strong winds out West on the plains moved us about and made steering difficult. With it, a smooth no problem experience as if there wasn't a trailer behind the truck. The tool to hook up the stabilizer bars makes it so easy. The pictured wear pads make a big difference so there's no wear between the bars and brackets extending their life. An excellent product and I would recommend it to anyone. 482175



- EQ95-01-5150
by:

I love love love these sway bracket jackets. They completely stopped the pops and groans my Equalizer was making before adding them. One special note, though... I suggest NOT adding lubricant on top of these. I added a light layer of the Equalizer lubricant on top and noticed that it reduced the friction on the spring bars maybe just a little too much and that allowed just a little bit of occasional sway movement that I hadn't felt before adding the lube. These are essential in my view and should be standard issue with every new Equalizer purchase. 291629

This product was exactly what I was looking for. I needed something to quiet my WDH while towing my travel trailer. Great price and shipped quickly. etrailer was quick to respond when order was made and quick to update when my purchase was ready to ship with tracking link. They are the first place I look for my towing needs. 548139

Haven't had the chance to take trailer out yet, but should work great. Simple installation in seconds. It is such an obvious and inexpensive, fix, l don't understand why this is not standard with the hitch. 389750


Comments

After a year the bushingsilencers are still working well. My only complaint is that these should be integrated in the original purchase. Why would the hitch be sold without them, when they make the towing experience so much more pleasant and would not cost that much more for the manufacturer to include on initial purchase.

Get them. Period. They prevent the WD bars from sawing into the brackets. Nice and quiet. Still no hint of sway. And definitely no noise. 644399

A+ customer service, fast shipping. 643443

I have been using a little grease on the L bracket to eliminate squealing from the load bars moving back and forth during travel . This year I decided to install these bracket jackets when I happened across them while buying some other spares. Installation couldn't be easier and there were no issues. They do add a small amount of height to where the bars rest so it will slightly increase the load distribution of your hitch setup. Also, I may still put a small dab of grease on the vertical leg of the L bracket next time because there was some noise. So far, so good after using them once. 641393


Comments

Adding grease or the jackets will inhibit the sway prevention performance of the system to a degree, since the system depends on metal-on-metal friction to prevent trailer sway.

Stops metal to metal contact (and noise) yet still provides good friction to reduce sway. Biught 2 pairs to be prepared on the road. Very happy with purchase. 629593



- EQ95-01-5150
by:

I highly recommend the bracket jackets. Although I don't know how it would feel or sound without them, I believe they work because the ride is without disturbing sounds and the bars easily slip onto and off of the jackets, once the system was adjusted properly. 602268

Does a good job. 602225

Can't believe how much the squeaking and popping was reduced after installing these. Highly recommended! Just remember to pull them off and put them away when parked. 597765

This hitch is very simple to set up and take down while travelling. Drove home with our new 27 foot TT in high wind through the Columbia River Gorge with no problem. My shipment of 3 boxes was delayed because of Midwest storms and I was concerned of the arrival. etrailer customer service was exceptional by their concern and devotion to keeping me updated of the arrivals of all 3 packages. Great item and company transaction. 589503

by:

Excellent delivery time as always. Got a chance to hook up my trailer using my new equalizer hitch and between the sway bracket jackets and lubricant I thought the noise was tolerable. Slow speeds and sharp turns still heard some metal on metal scraping noise but not as bad as when I didn't use the jackets and lubricant. Got a Colorado mountain trip coming up, should be a good test. 576667

Quite a reduction in the noise level of pops and bangs when turning, though it’s not going to get rid of that completely. Haven’t noticed much difference in sway control. Still works well. 522199

Easy install but didn’t cut the noise all the way out. Still get some creaking noises from stabilizers. 509565


Comments

The Equal-i-zer weight distribution systems rely on the metal to metal contact between the spring bars and the trailer frame mounted L-brackets to provide the sway control. Because of this, noise is unavoidable. Using the jackets will minimize the noise, but will also decrease the effectiveness of the sway control function to a small degree.

We're glad to hear that the Bracket Jackets are working well for you. Keep in mind that using this item will reduce the effectiveness of the sway control to a degree by preventing some of the metal-on-metal friction.
