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.
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.
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.

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

This is very simple - but ingenious. This is the first thing that has worked. And I've tried most of them. 114076

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

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. ETRAILER always ships fast and has a great website that makes product comparison easy. I've been a fan of this company for a while now and it's a no-brainer to go to ETRAILER first. 66457

Installation was pretty easy. The real test will come when I hook up a trailer to it. I'm sure it is a good investment. Towed a trailer once with my '87 Suburban without the quiet hitch. It was a scary experience. Every time I used my brakes I felt like a car was rear-ending me. I recommend this product. 226428

I received the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch 2 inch. I had a bad hitch rattle and a clunking noise when I took off from a red light pulling my travel trailer. The u clamp was received with fast service and had great help from Renee in getting the right thing I needed to stop my problem. A good product and stopped all of my problems. Very satisfied. 196427

I just received my Roadmaster Quite Hitch and placed in on my trailer hitch. I must say, it WORKS! My bike rack no longer shakes or rattles. I which I had purchased this item years ago. Thank you. 173620
by: Stephen P.05/27/2014
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

The product does what it was intended for. I have a 8 inch hitch extension,so, I bought two of them. Sure makes things solid. I would love to see this item in stainless steel. 182776

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

Quiet Hitch did what it's called, easy to install and locked down the hitch extender I use for my bike rack. There is now zero movement in between the extender and my jeep. 79082
by: Mike C.01/18/2014
This device works very well to lock the ball mount in the receiver. It prevents rattle and shake in the hitch. It is very good quality. 114107
Well done, solid, robust. Last piece to have my trailer complete. Delivered directly to my home with no issue. 71944
I received my Quiet Hitch in less than one week. I have installed it in about 10 minutes or less. I have not used the motor home yet to toe my car, but it seems to have stiffened up the drop hitch and toe bar. 198879
Great product and even better customer service. 206907
by: Roy S.09/15/2014
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

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

Have hooked up with my Alumistinger ball mount to the vehicle hitch receiver. Right at the moment appears will work well - before hooking up was able to rattle the ball mount around easily and with this Quiet Hitch RM-061 there is no play! Have not tested out on the road yet. Will also replace one of the nuts with a lock nut as would be far less likely to vibrate loose. I did hook up with the thinner U section on underside of the vehicle's hitch just behind the lip of receiver with the much thicker solid portion going at an angle and tightens down on top of the receiver ball mount right at the point the mount go's into the vehicle receiver. This is also the way it is pictured to be used on the package. Time with running with the bass boat trailer attached will tell if really works? 111529
This product worked as advertised. I haul my UTV on a trailer on secondary roads and prior to using this product, it would rattle and bang and would sway a little. This tightened up the trailer hitch solving those old issues. 230243

Should be standard equipment on everything that uses a hitch! Took my sloppy fitting Harbor Freight cargo carrier and made it literally rock solid! Best $$$ ever spent. Great cust service as well. Very happy camper! 218931
by: Paul R.07/28/2016
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
The Quiet Hitch was easy to install and fit the vehicle perfect. Looking forward to a quieter ride. 76957
by: Jim M08/28/2016
I am using it as a replacement to a "name brand" motorcycle hitch-hauler's (included with the hitch) 4-point bolt receiver/hitch stablizer design. My receiver has a rounded receiver collar; therefore, the bolt design anti-sway feature secures to the collar and tended to slip/move when tighten and slips/loosen as the hauler is weighted. I choose eTrailer products based not so much on individual reviews such as this... but my thought/theory is a company that survives (thrives) in this marketplace would not put up with the negative impact of selling an inferior product to its valued customer base. So far... my theory is 100% accurate.... the product is awesome, simple, well made and the quality product I expect when buying from eTrailer. 288534

Simple and effective. I have a bike rack which rattles and this is the perfect solution. 150888
I stalled my Roadmaster Quiet Hitch the other day and it was so easy to install. I have a double hitch set up, One for the 10 inch drop down bar connected to the motor home and the other for the tow bar that is connected to the drop down bar to hook up the vehicle. So I purchased two Roadmaster Quit Hitches and once I installed I could see how much it tightened up the set up, but I'm a firm believer in actually seeing it work, so I had gone on a short 150 mile road trip this past week end and I was very impressed with how it all stayed in place and eliminated all of the rattle and play. Based on this short trip so far I'm very happy with the product and it has worked as advertised. 265248

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
Best anti rattle device I've ever used. Easy to install and very secure. 232109

I was using a hitch stabilizer consisting of two threaded eye bolts that slide over the hitch receiver pin and a square bracket with rubber flange that slides over the hitch receiver but it only eliminated front to back rattle. Before buying the RM-061 Roadmaster Quiet Hitch I ruled out other more expensive and elaborate hitch stabilizers due to lack of depth of clearance of my hitch receiver. I wasn't sure if the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch would only eliminate up and down rattle but I put it on and it eliminated ALL play in my hitch receiver; front to back, left to right and up and down. I should have bought one of these a long time ago, thanks etrailer! 21649

Product is exactly as advertised! Many thanks to E-Trailer for prompt service. Like Arnold said; I 'll be back!!! 58533

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
by: Curtis H.09/04/2012
I purchased the Quiet Hitch to secure a receiver mounted spare tire carrier to a Curt hitch extension on a Kawasaki Teryx4. It took all of 5 minutes to install and I installed it where it would lift the tire carrier higher due to clearance problems with the spare tire when the trailer ramp was in the upright position. After a fairly rough 45 mile off road ride in the mountains of Tennessee, which is far more abuse than this product was designed for, the tire carrier was still completely tight. This product appears to be well made. Only time will tell, but it appears that this did the trick. I am completely satisfied. 53871
I learned about this product when searching for a way to eliminate the rattle and sway of my Hidden Hitch Class III 2" Ball Mount that I am using to mount my Swagman XC Tow Mount Bike Rack on the back of my RV. The recommendations at eTrailer helped me figure out exactly what to do by using this Road Master Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches - RM-061 - coupled with the Anti-Rattle hitch pin and lock, part number 63232 There is no sway from left or right and no up or down movement either!!! Items came quickly and work in tandem perfectly. My bikes ride solid and safe! Be sure to periodically check the bolt tightness. 158842

Here is my setup using the items from my two orders, including the two ant-rattle devices. The pictures aren't that great of quality, since I just used my cell phone (my only camera anymore). Everything works perfectly. 10379

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
by: Paul Mc05/30/2013
This item works as advertised. I picked one up as we started using a ball mount mounted bike rack that strongly recommended an anti-wobble device when used without the trailer attached. It certainly takes the slack out. I didn't realize how noticeable and pleasant the more tight link between the tow vehicle and the trailer would feel regardless of the bike rack. An improvement would be nylon inserts on the jam nuts that stiffen their action. As is, they easily are lost if the unit is not under tension. However, there are after market products that address the matter. A word to the wise. 82508
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
by: Ed M.06/22/2015
I rated the product poor, but I must say that the only reason is because I own a late model Ford F-150 and the design of the receiver is the reason this thing doesn't work. We pulled our 7,500 pound RV on a 1,500 mile trip this last few weeks, stopping around every 250 miles. Each time that I checked the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch it had slipped off the edge of the receiver. Because Ford receivers have a rounded edge all the way around the opening of the receiver it doesn't give the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch anything to hold onto and it eventually pulls loose. 206456

I wish that I had found this years ago! I have a heavy duty steel cargo carrier that is rated for 500 pounds but I never came close to that because it was so wobbly in the receiver. The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch effectively clamps the cargo carrier (trailer hitch, bike rack, etc.) to the receiver and eliminates 99% of the movement. This is a great product and so simple. Anyone can use this device, just follow the directions and use the clamp to pull your accessories down against the bottom of your receiver. No more CLUNKING of the hideous hitch! 99302
I am using this with a bike rack. With just the the standard threaded anti-sway bolt the rack came with the rack bounced up and down fairly noticably. Adding the RoadMaster Quiet Hitch took both the bounce and the sway out it! This is a great inexpensive product with a simple design that just works! 85045
by: Pappy jack05/02/2014
Just installed. Seems to work perfect as all slack between receiver, drop hitch, and tow bar eliminated. Have not towed at this time but will send response after next trip. Employees at etrailer are excellent and provide great info on needed products. Won't wast time shopping elsewhere as this is my store for my motorhome. Luv etrailer. (: 128614

We have a small pop up camper on our 4WD truck, We fabricated a top step using a plate(step tread) welded on a draw bar. The step moved slightly because the draw bar was not secure. The Roadmaster "Quiet Hitch" removed all the "wiggle" in the step and has removed the extra movement out of our tow hitch ( we tow a Suzucki Samurai). 325474
by: Benjamin M.11/22/2013
This thing came fast and is really heavy duty for something that costs just $24! I had my doubts that it would be 100% efficient, but I can't move my cargo hauler at all. Because I drive a wrangler, at slower speeds I could here it bouncing and swaying all summer. Not anymore! So glad I tried this product before any others, simple, fast, easy. Etrailer kept me so well informed about my order the whole time, they actually have asked ME if I have anymore questions! Will certainly be giving them my business in the future. 108107
by: Doug F08/09/2012
I'm about as un-mechanically inclined as is possible. I was able to put this on in 5 minutes and there is no play between the hitch and the extension used for my bike rack. No more worrying about the bikes anymore! Great product! etrailer's customer services was FANTASTIC! They emailed me to confirm the order went through, emailed me again when the warehouse got the order, and emailed me again to say it had been shipped. Awesome service. Will return to etrailer.com for all future hitch related purchases. 51148
by: Bruce B08/21/2015
Excellent delivery (2 days from phone order) This simple little gadget has solved a problem for me. We have a small , tandem trailer which often has no tongue weight. This is a great way to generate a lot of clatter from the hitch assembly. Last week we purchased an adjustable ball clamp which eliminated 80% of the racket . This little clamp assembly completely eliminated the problem Thanks to Etrailer for these 2 problem solving products that did exactly what they were supposed to do. 220800

I have used this a half-dozen times in the month I've had it, and it is a nice product: delivered quickly, good fit and finish, installs / removes quickly and easily, and is pretty effective. Quiet Hitch, yes; Silent Hitch, no. As long as you understand this is not the magic bullet, you will be very satisfied. I bought it to stop the drawbar rattle from my Curt receiver hitch when towing empty trailers, and it has cut down on the majority of the problem; definitely worth the investment. 229400
by: russ T.09/19/2015
For my application (front tire rack) works great, but to stabilize a heavy load i doubt it will hold up, the U-clamp is 5/16" i believe, not big enough support the slack of a 5,000# trailer. but for light weight applications ie. bicycle rack, tire rack, cargo box ect. it should work fine. 226462
