Roadmaster Hitch Anti-Rattle - RM-061

Use this hitch immobilizer to keep your ball mount or hitch-mounted accessory from rattling and shifting in your receiver. Great for tow bars, high-low adapters, bike racks, cargo carriers, and more. Quick, simple bolt-on installation.

  • Hitch immobilizer keeps hitch-mounted accessories stable and secure

QH Dims

Nearly every hitch setup suffers from a bit of slip. This free play between your trailer hitch receiver and your hitch-mounted accessory is completely normal, but it's also completely preventable. By adding the Quiet Hitch to your setup, you can stabilize your hitch-mounted accessory as it sits in the receiver to eliminate rattle, sway, and all that extra play.


USE W ACCESSORIES - BAR ON TOP

Just slip the Quiet Hitch over your tow bar, hitch adapter, ball mount, or other accessory. When you slide the accessory into the hitch receiver, position the U-bolt around the collar on the bottom of your hitch receiver. Then place the bar on top of the accessory shank and tighten the nuts onto the U-bolt. As you tighten the Quiet Hitch, the shank of your accessory will be pulled down towards the bottom of the receiver opening, thus securing it in place within the tube.


If you are going to use the Quiet Hitch with a weight distribution system, the setup will be opposite. Position the U-bolt around the top of the hitch receiver and place the bar on the bottom of the weight distribution shank. As you tighten the nuts on the Quiet Hitch, the shank will be pulled up towards the top of the receiver to help balance the downward force that is placed on the hitch from the weight distribution system.


Benefits for a Tow Bar

Using an anti-rattle device, such as the Quiet Hitch, is recommended when flat towing a vehicle. Besides reducing wear and tear on your tires, hitch receiver, and tow bar, using an anti-rattle device can help prevent more serious problems. A small amount of free play at your hitch may not seem like much, but this sway is magnified the farther back you go. A little movement at the hitch translates to a lot of movement at the rear of your towed vehicle. By using the Quiet Hitch, you eliminate this sway at the source.


Note: If you have a towing setup that includes a drop receiver or a high-low adapter, use 2 immobilizers to make your system as secure and rattle-free as possible. Use 1 Quiet Hitch at the connection point between the adapter and your hitch, and use the other where your tow bar slides into the adapter.

It works great. The hitch used to bang and clunk all the time, shaking the vehicle. Now it is quiet, and pleasant, to tow the trailer. 570747

I order the roadmaster quiet hitch from E-trailer and it seems to be working OK, it's taken out about half of the wobble on my hitch Accessory. I give E-trailer of 5 star for shipping it out, it only took about a week. And I give the product about 4 stars because it is built sturdy and seems to be working OK. 547093

I never made it a year with this product. After the first installation the threads on the u-bolt started to coming off. Installed the nuts, in order, hand tight then torqued, then added the second nut and torqued that one with an beam type torque wrench. I used this device to stabilize my bicycle rack, so it's not like there was a lot of stress on it. I found a similar device on an online auction site that had a thicker bolt and didn't use the jam nut set-up. This works much better than this device ever did. 559278

I bought this little device to tame my clunking hitch, and I was amazed at how simple it was to install (1 minute once you break out the ratchet!). Better yet, it works great. Awesome and easy, can't beat that. 151043

I still use it and really like it. It is the best hitch stabilizing device I have ever seen, and at a great price.

Purchased the Swagman Traveler XCS Platform Style Rack bicycle rack mounted on a 15 ¾ “ Hidden Hitch ball mount. It allowed me to tow 2 bicycles mounted on the hitch and still tow our 15 ft. pop up camper. After a year on the road hauling the camper, I could not be happier. The Swagmen bike rack is superbly engineered and manufactured. The designers seemed to think of everything as far as usability and durability. I definitely recommend also using the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Anti Rattle device. It provided positive clamping to eliminate tow bar movement within the hitch receiver. Also purchased the Roadmaster 8” Safety Cable Extensions which were needed to allow attachment of the safety chains which were not long enough to reach the hitch mounting once the longer ball mount was installed. Also praise to Kelsey W. at etrailer.com who assisted me by answering my questions and guiding me through the sale. All equipment arrived within the time promised and all in good shape. 504198

I have a double hitch installed on my Class C motorhome for my bike rack and my Blue Ox to tow the car. I installed 2 of these and they completely eliminated all the movement in the assembly. I also added a Quiet Hitch Pin for the top receiver that did not have a lip. It also works perfectly. Thanks for great products! 402869

After a year, my hitch parts are still tight and doing the job of eliminating all wobbles.

I have both a front and back hitch mount on my 2006 Toyota Tacoma...pulling various sized trailers a lot and had a lot of rattling from the back receiver/hitch setup...most impressive the ease of installation and lack of noise after buying a RM-061 Roadmaster Quiet Hitch clamp! Am presently building a motorcycle carrier for my front hitch and it involved having a 6" riser added and then the receiver for the ramp, so I ordered 2 more of this item! It is going to be so nice not to have to listen to all that rattling as I go down the road! This is a great and easy to install product...heavy duty and should last forever! You will notice in the picture that I mounted it upside down compared to use in the video. This prevented me from having to sit on the ground and put the nuts on and tighten them from under the clamp...either way works fine! 47845

I have since removed the 8 inch hitch extension,so now I only use one, works great, I have mine in the pressing down position, the nuts are facing up, much better than facing down.

This Quiet Hitch performs as advertised. I think it was a tad expensive, but still worth the money. One of the advantages it has over the competition, is that when you are NOT using it, it becomes basically a TWO dimensional object for storage. This is not an insignificant positive feature compared to what else is offered out there. Actually is was one of the main reasons I bought this one. 155602

While I dont use it much, I think it is great, and miss it when I dont take the time to put it on.

Well built, easy to install, great for use on most ball mounts. For my application the ball mount height imposed high tension loads during braking and stretched the "U" bolt loosening it up. 563134

I ended up using a 7-1/2 inch Roadmaster extender along with a Roadmaster 4" Hi-Lo adapter to tow our Jeep with our motorhome. I used 3 of the quiet hitch brackets to stabilize the extensions and tow bar. We towed for the first time this weekend for about a 170 mile round trip. The Jeep tracked perfectly behind the motorhome. I had to make several hard stops due to lights changing and cars pulling into traffic unexpectedly. There was absolutely no noise or hitch bounce. They are easily installed. I highly recommend this product. 114431

The product worked for the first 500 miles. The bolts stripped the threads on the u-shaped part and it was no longer effective. I would suggest better or heavier quality metal. I solved the problem by having a jam nut installed on the receiver. It works perfectly with little effort. 528644

They work great...we needed an extender due to the spare tire mounted on the back of the jeep to mount a bike rack. Extender works great for that purpose and the anti-tattle piece works great.

After a long review of available products to reduce rattle on my low-tongue-weight job trailer, I settled on this unit as my only hope. I had to install it upside-down (nuts down) because the safety chain anchor rings on my Jeep Renegade block access to the lower lip on the receiver. Even so, it eliminated the greatest part of the awful rattle, bringing the problem down to a truly acceptable level. 272735


Comments

After a year, the hitch rattles slightly more than it did when I first installed it yes, the torque is still proper but still nowhere near as bad as it did before I purchased it.

Thank you for the follow-up. For the most part, the product does what it claimed to do. It does a great job at stabilizing the tow hitch accessory. However, it needs to be stronger. It bends and after it is tightened down, it is not always easy to take back off because of that.

I purchased the Quiet Hitch a year ago. I has been what I hoped it would be. I completely satisfied with this product. What I didn't expect is that it is also an anti-theft devise. It prevents causal theft by requiring someone to have a wrench to remove a hitch. And the rattles and bangs of pulling a trailer are gone. 561302

Good product. I have a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee with factory installed hitch. I was unable to install the quiet hitch per the instructions due to the safety chain loops. I installed the quiet hitch in the opposite direction and it worked as expected. I was only pulling a small trailer so I wasn't worried about the load being transferred to the quiet hitch. 570834

I've used several other similar products. This is the best. USA made, too. I would prefer not to use anything made by Chinese child labor.

I installed this jewel of a part onto my hitch, drawbar in less than five minutes, and the heavy duty bike rack lost all its wobble when the bikes are loaded. This accessory is a must for all wobbly bike racks. It snugs down the draw bar as good as if it was welded onto the hitch. I highly recommend this accessory. 132885

This product serves it's purpose and is a simple design. I use it when towing my travel trailer with a WD hitch. So as per instructed by the employee's notes on the product page, I installed it, hoop up, nuts down. The normal installation without WD hitch is opposite that. I just returned from a trip and it worked great. I didn't hear or feel any shifting in the hitch during the trip as I have in the past. The one thing I would recommend it to either use some lock-tite or keep a close eye on the nuts if you are using it as I am with a WD hitch. One of my keeper nuts came loose and dropped down a few threads. No issue since I caught it, but something to keep in mind. 321653

Recent purchase of a Pro Series Cargo Carrier 63153. Assembly of the carrier was very straight forward but when installed into the 2" receiver, there was too much play at the receiver for my liking. Jonathan at etrailer recommended the RM-061 Quiet Hitch and got it to me while away on a trip. Installation was easy and it completely eliminated all the play. Now the cargo carrier acts like it is part of the truck, not and add on, a perfect solution!! 260511

Attached a cargo carrier to my 2014 Wrangler JK 2dr's Hidden Hitch part 87424 with the Tow Ready J-Pin, but it didn't quite take all of the sway and rattle out vertically. Added the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch tightened to the recommended 23 ft lbs and we are good to go - the cargo carrier feels almost welded on back there.... Excellent product, couldn't be happier with it. 108663

I always had a hitch welded to the car and went with one that i installed myself from etrailer and a ball mount joint etc (all were fabulous by the way). I picked up my trailer from home depot and drove 5 feet and all this clacking started and had me worried-you have no idea. Some research online said it was the space between the ball mount and the hitch interior shaft. I researched and found sooooo many options and ultimately went with the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch. Couldn't be happier. Went on easy and not a peep. I would recommend that etrailer.com make sure this is an option or suggested product to go along with hitches when you buy-would have saved me extra shipping cost, time and aggravation. However, etrailer is fantastic and really helped me during both purchases. 277242

THIS SIMPLE, INEXPENSIVE DEVICE WORKS EXACTLY AS INTENDED. IT STOPS THE MOVEMENT OF THE HITCH IN THE RECEIVER WHICH PREVENTS DAMAGE/ELONGATION OF THE HITCH PIN HOLE.

I have three Quiet hitches. One on my 2016 Dodge Ram, and i have two on my 2007 that has a camper that is extended two feet beyond the receiver and i pull a 32' boat i could hear the extensions rattling with every bump. So i purchased two for my 2007 and ended all of the rattling completely. It worked so well on 2007. I purchased one for my 2016. This is a simple and great fix for a rattling receiver. 308720

Do you have a question about this Hitch Anti-Rattle?


  • How to Eliminate Rattle Between Ball Mount and Receiver While Towing
  • The amount of play or slop you are experiencing between your receiver and ball mount is caused by different manufacturing tolerances between the ball mount and receiver tube that the ball mount slides into. The receiver does not measure exactly 2 inches side to side. A receiver can be a few hundredths of an inch larger or smaller than 2 inches and still be considered within tolerance. The same goes for the shank on the ball mount. The shank is purposely made a bit smaller than 2 inches...

The No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge, # 93347, wedges itself between the receiver and ball mount to take up play and eliminate rattle. The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, # RM-061, helps eliminate rattle and sway within your hitch receiver.

In these situations, eliminating as much play as possible is a good idea because you do not want too many parts moving or bouncing around while you are on the road.

  • It would not be wise to modify the car with extra attachment points to the vehicle for stability or to add tie-down poles for the cargo. Altering or adding to the structure can weaken the carrier not to mention void any applicable manufacturer warranty. We carry parts to remedy the wobbling problem like part # RM-061. Anti-rattle devices put some tension between the accessory and the hitch, just enough to reduce rattling and wobbling. Using a tie-down post for something like a dirt...

  • Do You Have a Spare Tire Carrier Designed for a 2 inch Receiver
  • We do have a spare tire carrier that mounts into a 2 inch receiver. The Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier, part number C31006, is a very nice mount that is easy to use and can be used with locks to secure the spare to the carrier and the carrier to the vehicle. You will need a hitch pin and clip or lock to secure the mount to the vehicle. Either the # PC3 Pin and Clip or the # 63232 Anti-Rattle Device and Lock would work well with this product and to secure the spare you...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for a 1-1/4 inch Hitch
  • I do have an anti-rattle device that will work on a 1-1/4 inch hitch, but the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 that you referenced is designed to only work on 2 inch hitches and would not work for you. Check out the No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge # 93347. This product will work on your 1-1/4 inch hitch and also doubles as a theft-deterrent.

  • Comparison Between the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch and the Pro Series Anti-Rattle Device
  • Both devices are designed to help tighten the connection between the hitch and the towing accessory. Between the two, I recommend the Road Master Quit Hitch, like # RM-061 for 2 inch hitches. The Quiet Hitch's U-bolt design might give you a stronger connection over the Pro Series Anti-Rattle one bolt design. The Road Master Quiet Hitch is designed to help immobilize your ball mount or towing accessory when installed in the hitch. When you tighten the nuts on the immobilizer, the U-bolt...

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Device to Use for Trailer Towing
  • I do have a solution for you, however the MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp # MT70258 referenced in your question is not recommended for use when towing a trailer. This particular device is designed to be used with hitch-mounted accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers. A better option will be with the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 as long as the 2 inch hitch receiver on your Silverado has a ring or collar around it. This will simply slide over the shank of your ball mount and the U-bolt...

  • Anti-Rattle Device to Eliminate Movement of a Yakima DoubleDown Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack
  • The Yakima DoubleDown 4, # Y02424, comes with a hitch bolt that, when tightened, should relieve the play between the bike rack shank and the inside of the hitch receiver. What you can do to eliminate any additional sway would be to use a separate anti-rattle device. The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, # RM-061, would be a good choice. It will hold the bike rack shank even tighter to the hitch receiver. I have included a link to a video showing how it works. Please note it is for a 2 inch receiver...

  • What Anti-Rattle Device Would Work On A Class III 2 inch Hidden Hitch
  • If the rattling is coming from between the hitch and the drawbar you can use something as simple as a wedge type anti-rattle device. The No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge, # 93347, works well for this application. The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, # RM-061, should not be used when towing because it was not designed to handle the tongue weight of a trailer. I am including video links that will review both of the above mentioned anti-rattle devices.

  • Where To Mount a Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Anti-Rattle Device # RM-061
  • The anti rattle ring needs to butt up directly against the hitch and the bar butts up to the drawbar. The bolts on the device then need to be tightened down. This keeps the unit in position and working to keep the accessory nice and snug. We have a video installation of the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Anti-Rattle Device, item # RM-061, for you to review, that shows the complete installation procedure.

  • How to Reduce a Bouncing Bike Rack Installed on a 2004 Nissan Quest
  • Having a bike rack, loaded or unloaded, bounce some is common but there are measures you can take to reduce the movement of the rack. The issue is that the shank on a bike rack has to be slightly smaller than the receiver opening for it to fit correctly so there will always be some play. Some racks come with an anti-rattle device that usually takes the form of a threaded bolt uses to pull the shank of the bike rack tight to the side of the receiver to reduce or eliminate the movement...

  • Using Anti-Rattle Locking Hitch Pin # 63232 on Bike Rack with Adapter Sleeve
  • I imagine your bike rack has a shank designed for a 1-1/4 inch receiver with a sleeve that can be used to adapt it to a 2 inch receiver, is that correct? If this is the case, unfortunately the # 63232 will not work for you, because the threaded block would not fit into the shank of your bike rack. You could however use a standard locking hitch pin like part # 40107 along with an an anti-rattle system like the # RM-061. I personally use the # RM-061 when I tow my PWCs, and they work great. I...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Use with Weigh Safe Ball Mount
  • To remove the movement in the hitch between the Weigh Safe # WS6-2 and the hitch opening you would need to use a wedge style anti-rattle like the part # RM-061. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Recommendation to Help Back and Forth Movement in Trailer Hitch While Towing
  • To help alleviate the back and forth chucking you are experiencing with your 2 inch receiver there are a couple of things I recommend doing. First is to use a cushioned ball mount, the Convert-A-Ball, which is designed to reduce this type of movement and additional road shock with its polyurethane cushioning interior; if you take a look at the accompanying diagram it displays the cushioned inside of the ball mount. I will list the different rise and drop available for this ball mount below....

  • Is 2017 Toyota Tundra Suitable for Towing a 6K Travel Trailer
  • It is always preferable to have extra capacity/safety margin in any towing set up. The 2017 Tundra tow rating varies from a low of 6400-lbs up to just over 10,000-lbs depending on how it is equipped at the factory. Certainly the lower capacity version would not be ideal; you would be right at the truck's towing limit. If you select a tow-package-equipped version then the truck would certainly be capable of towing a 6K travel trailer with room to spare. Toyota does note in their online...

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Devices for Towing a Boat Trailer
  • There are several anti-rattle devices that would be good to use when towing a boat trailer. The construction of your ball mount will determine the best choice for your application. If your ball mount is hollow, and you have a 2 inch receiver hitch, then I would recommend the Softride Anti-Rattle Device and Lock for 2 inch Trailer Hitches, item # SR25219. This anti rattle device also includes a lock to secure the ball mount to the vehicle. If your ball mount is solid, and you have...

  • Removing Excessive Movement of Thule Hitching Post Pro 4 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack
  • With any given trailer hitch and hitch accessory there is a chance of some rattle and slop that could occur. The solution in many accessories is a weldnut in the shank that when used with a threaded hitch pin pulls the accessory shank tight to the receiver to eliminate play. The nut is only needed on the one side to pull the shank tight. The Thule Hitching Post Pro Bike Carrier, # TH934XTR, is one of these accessories that does have a weldnut and threaded hitch pin. But it sounds like...

  • Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Compared to Other Style Hitch Immobilizers
  • The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 and other hitch immobilizers use the force from tightening the U-bolt to force the hitch shank or ball mount to seat tight against the opening of your vehicle's hitch. The hitch immobilizers are designed eliminate the rattle and help secure the hitch mounted accessory. The main difference between the Quiet Hitch and the StowAway style, we have a version of this anti-rattle device # RSCP, is that one was designed by a company that make tow bars and...

  • Installation of the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061
  • The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, # RM-061, was designed to eliminate rattle in ball mounts, tow bars and other hitch mounted accessories. It pulls the shank of the ball mount or other accessory against the receiver to keep the ball mount from bouncing around. This device should not be used when towing a trailer. It was not designed to support the tongue weight of a trailer and could be damaged if too much force is exerted on the device.
