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.

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

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

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

Great Customer Service. Package was delivered on time. 574217



- EQ95-01-5150

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.

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

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



- 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

Still working good a year later

by:

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:

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



- EQ95-01-5150
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



- 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



- EQ95-01-5150
by:

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.

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.

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:

These seemed rather expensive for plastic parts but our trailer hitch was so loud that it was worth a shot. If I’m being very generous the noise seemed maybe a little quieter, maybe, the first time or two we used them. But over time I’m not confident they make any significant difference. I keep them on because I like reducing a little of the friction but I wouldn’t buy a replacement if I lost them. 728852

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.

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.
