Works well. Paint is thin, will wear off. I had to sand blast off all the rust and re-coat. I did add a rubber tuff coat on it which I would suggest doing when you get it. 904307

Gladly write a review I Love etrailer.com . I already took a picture of my new goodies and mentioned etrailer.com my my ICOG Facebook page . Ice castle owners group is over 12k members all towing and hauling all year round .. I think most of use buy from you already but there’s always new members joining and asking question .

I recently purchased a pontoon boat with a pole tongue which made it impossible to use standard anti-sway bars. So I immediately went to another website, but they weren't able to deliver in time for when I needed it to pick the boat up. E-Trailer was able to deliver the adapter in 2 days. I know pulling the pontoon 400 miles would have been difficult without it. Thanks much. 544268

Good product and easy to install. Would recommend that the verbiage in the installation steps are bulletized with only one step per bullet. This allows the installer to check steps off when complete and ensures a step isn't missed because the words are lost in a long paragraph. 456820

Performance is good but the product is rusted all over.

- EQ95-01-5950
by:

The pole tongue adapter and Fastway E2 hitch work great together. Instructions are straight forward and easy to follow. I put it together following the basic setup and it didn't need much adjustment. I could recommend this setup for anyone. Our ice castle has a hydralic frame which you can use to hook the spring bars up. It greatly improved the ride, steering and handling of the rig. I also have a set of Air Lift 1000 in the rear (previously ordered from etrailer). They work great in conjunction with this hitch. And further add adjustability to the setup. 417096

by:

Be careful - I ordered with a Reece equalizer hitch and it did not work with that so am sending that back to get an Equalizer brand hitch that it should work with - of course I will be out the cost of shipping which will not be cheap considering the weight of the equalizer hitch - a risk of ordering such a heavy item on line. Had to go to the hardware store to buy a bolt 1/2" longer to make it work on my boat hitch. I like that it does fit well between the spare tire mount and jack on my hitch. Have yet to receive the correct load equalizer hitch ("Equalizer" brand) so do not yet know how it will work with that. 255862

Worked as I hoped. Used it on an aluminum I-beam boat trailer. I-beams covered the pole tounge. I drilled the outsides of the I-beams and through bolted the adapter on. The bolt slots in the adapter alow a lot of range in where u can put the bolts. PS etrailer videos are very helpful. Equalizer customer service was outstanding. Really helped with this unconventional install. 62585

Ask the Experts about this Equal-i-zer Accessories and Parts

  • Recommended Pole Tongue Adapter for Chain Hanger Weight Distribution System
    For use with your chain-hanger style weight distribution system I recommend the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter # RP58393. This will mount to the pole tongue on your boat trailer to provide proper mounting space for the system's chain brackets. The Equal-i-zer Adapter # EQ95-01-5950 that you referenced is geared more towards Equal-i-zer and Fastway Weight Distribution Systems that use sway control L-brackets and wouldn't work well with the type of system you have.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 4,500 Pound V-Nose Trailer
    Since you do not have any frame space on which to attach sway-control brackets, I do recommend going with the Pole-Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950 referenced in your question. This will let you mount the weight distribution system on your trailer tongue and can be positioned 27 to 32 inches back from the hitch ball. I have included an image that gives you a better idea as to how this will work. Then for the actual weight distribution system, we will first want to take an estimate...

  • Can Weight Distribution be Used with an Aluminum Frame I-Beam Trailer
    So there's a couple issues you are going to run into. 99% of aluminum frame trailers can't have a weight distribution system used on them per the manufacturer of the trailer. You can try checking with the manufacturer but it's most likely not going to be recommended. Also Husky does not have a pole tongue adapter so if you wanted to use the Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems # EQ95-01-5950 you'd have to use an Equal-I-Zer brand system like the part # EQ37100ET...

  • Troubleshooting Pole Tongue Adapter #EQ95-01-5950 Fit Issue Due To Coupler Length and Brake Line
    I checked with my tech contact at Equal-I-zer and the Pole-Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950 and they have not tested the adapter mounted upside down. They said they wouldn't recommend it because the entire weight of the system would be on that one bolt if it were installed on the underside. Instead, I recommend you use the Titan Hydraulic Brake Line with Fittings # T4890700 to go up and over your adapter. That flexible extension will allow you to mount the adapter at 32 inches and not...

  • Weight Distribution System for Trailer with Covered A-Frame
    The Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems part # EQ95-01-5950 is designed to be used on straight-tongue trailers and would not work with your a-frame trailer. Since you said that the tongue of your a-frame is covered by the nose of the trailer you will want to consider a system that uses chains and attaches directly to the sides of the frame rails rather than clamping around them. For this, I recommend the Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control part...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch with Sway Control Device for Boat Trailer With Surge Brakes
    In order to use a weight distribution system on a straight pull trailer tongue you'll have to use an adapter, the Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems part # EQ95-01-5950 which can be used with the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System part # FA92-00-1000 is my recommendation. The only other thing you'd need is a hitch ball, part # 63840 for 2-5/16". The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System works with surge brakes so there will be no issues there. Please note,...

  • How to Determine the Correct Weight Distribution System for Boat Trailer
    You would not want to use the weight of your boat to determine the best weight distribution system for you. In order to choose the right system, you will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go boat trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. To determine your trailer's loaded tongue weight you can use a scale such as the Sherline # 5780 or by using one of the methods outlined in...

  • Axle Placement for Heavy Boat Trailer Tongue Weight
    There are a couple things to consider when placing your axle or axles for trailer tongue weight. You want to make sure your axle is not going to be overloaded by the weight and that your trailer will still be balanced when loaded but not connected to your hitch. I've attached an article to help with the trailer axle location using an equation to assist. You want 10-15% of your total trailer weight on the tongue, with boat trailers normally being on the lighter end of that scale....

  • What Size Trailer Tongues Do Reese and Equal-i-zer Pole Tongue Adapters Fit?
    I assume you were talking about the tongue width and tongue height that the respective pole tongue adapters fit. The Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter # RP58393 fits tongues that are between 1-5/8" and 5" wide and between 3" and 6" high while the Equal-i-zer Pole-Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950 fits trailer tongues between 1" and 5" wide and between 2" and 5" high.

  • Can Equal-i-zer Pole Tongue Adapter Be Used on Boat Trailer Tongue Wider Than 5 Inches
    I do have a solution for you, however I reached out to my contact at Equal-i-zer and he does not recommend using the Pole-Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950 in the manner you described. He said that turning the L-brackets would affect the overall stability of the adapter so he couldn't ensure that it would hold up to the torque of a weight distribution system. Also keep in mind that most aluminum trailers aren't rated for use with a weight distribution system because of the stress they put on...

  • How to Select Weight Distribution System for Snowmobile Trailer with Varying Tongue Weight
    The goal when selecting a weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) system for a trailer like your 6000-lb pole-tongue snow machine trailer is to choose one so that your actual fully-loaded trailer tongue weight (TW) falls in the middle of the system's operating range. In this TW figure you also need to include the weight of any cargo in the vehicle that sits behind the rear axle, such as a generator or cooler. All of these systems work over a range of TW and choosing the right one means...

    So you can absolutely use a weight distribution system with sway control for your boat trailer that that has a straight tongue - so long as it is not a swing-away tongue. All you need is an adapter and the ability to position the adapter 27" - 32" from the hitch ball. If so you will need the Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems # EQ95-01-5950. You will then be able to use this adapter with either a Fastway or Equal-i-zer weight distribution system. The more...

  • Weight Distribution System and Pole-Tongue Adapter Recommendation for 9,500 lb Boat Trailer
    For your application I recommend going with the Curt MV Weight Distribution (WD) # C17057 instead of the Curt # C17342 because the part you mentioned is only rated for up to 1,000 lbs tongue weight while the MV I recommended is rated for 1,000 lbs - 1,400 lbs tongue weight. Since you take into account the loaded tongue weight of the trailer with the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your Chevy Silverado this would be a much more safe option. In my experience boat trailers tend...

    The spring bars for the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37140ET feature a total length of 35-1/2". Equal-i-zer recommends that the sway control brackets (or in your case the Pole-Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950) be positioned 27" to 32" back from the center of the trailer coupler. I have attached a couple short video reviews below, along with the written installation instructions that you can look through as well.

    The photo you sent is a trailer with surge brakes so you won't need to add a traile brake controller if that is what you have. If you have electric trailer brakes, then you will want a controller like # C51180. The Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems - 14,000 lbs GTW, 1,400 lbs TW # EQ95-01-5950 is likely needed for your trailer as the a-frame is connected to a pole tongue.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch for 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Towing 6000-lb Boat Trailer
    Thank you for the details about your loaded boat trailer's tongue weight. To match this 710-lb loaded TW and to allow you to back up the trailer I recommend the Equal-I-zer 4-Point system # EQ37100ET which works for a TW range from 600 to 1000-lbs. This setup comes complete with a shank and 2-5/16-inch hitch ball. I recommend a thin-wall socket like # ALL643216 for an easier time when installing the hitch ball. The 4-Point will both level your load and control sway. These systems...

  • Is Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems Needed?
    I checked out the install guide you referenced and while you do not necessarily have to use the pole tongue adapter with your Equal-i-zer # EQ37060ET, it will mean you have a single spring bar and you won't have the same capacity and sway control. We always recommend using the Pole-Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950 for to mount the L-brackets of your Equal-i-zer with a straight-tongue trailer to ensure you get the most out of your system.

There are parts like the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter for Weight Distribution Systems # RP58393 or the Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems, # EQ95-01-5950, that provide properly spaced mounting points for the sway control brackets of the system.
