I haven't used this item yet but I can't see it not working under normal use. I didn't give it 5 stars because of the included nuts not being a nylock type. The ones included have the built in washer that has serrations on it to provide the locking action. I have used this type of nut before and have had them come loose. The instructions do advise to check them after so many miles but if it comes loose it could have done fell off. I will check the nylocks I get to put on it in the same manner. But if there is some looseness to take out I am more confident the nut will still be there to tighten. And I will pack a few spares. Can never be too prepared out on the road! 344784

Hitch Immobilizer on my bike rack. Works great. 22875

Like others have said, this works great. Super easy to put on the hitch and tightened up the slop in my hitch extender. Not the cheapest hitch immobilizer but I didn't want to waste money on one that wouldn't work and then end up ordering this one. As always, etrailer shipped it right away and it arrived a day early. This is a good product, I doubt you will be disappointed if you order it. 330830

Looked promising, but did not work for me. As with some other similar items I've tried, the nuts become loose despite using Locktite Red. Even tried Gorilla Glue, no-go. If tightened more, to 65 ft-lbs, the metal on the clamp bends, and nuts still work their way loose quickly. Threads are not long enough to put a second nut on it for locking. It may work for some applications, but not for my 9000 pound Keystone trailer. Still looking for something that will work. JD in Colorado 436893

This product works very well, but from the first time use and each one following it becomes more difficult to work with. The lock nuts and U-bolts screw threads tend to become weak with each use and eventually the threads become damaged (stripped). The washers also tend to expand with each use due to tightening and become difficult to remove from the U-bolts. I'm still using it and replacing hardware as necessary. Would be great if every use were like the first. In my opinion, it is high priced given the quick wear and tear. It would be great if it came with a double set of hardware, minus the main anchor block. Then it would be better priced. 584274

In my Jeep Grand Cherokee, every hitch noise was broadcast loudly straight into the cabin. (My son, who tows with a pickup truck, couldn't believe the racket and thought that there must be a hitch-failure problem.) It was tolerable until traveling a washboard section of the NYS Thruway near Syracuse; ow, ow, ow, ow, ow! Something must be done! This product did it, and towing a trailer is now amazingly smooth and quiet. I'm so glad I got one. 460016



- BX88224

This product does exactly what it claims to do. Unlike stabilizers that provide pressure in only one direction, this Blue Ox product provides pressure in a vertical and horizontal direction. Therefor, the hitch is forced into a corner and completely immobilized. in addition, since "U" clamps are used and not bolts, there is no possibility of bolts shifting or bending. The Blue Ox receiver immobilizer design and quality is worth its high price. 437817


Comments
Originally, it appeared to be a good product but after a year no so much. Currently, i’m unable to tighten the “U” bolts enough to restrict movement of the hitch. The “L” shaped bracket has bent to the point where it no longer works properly.

Depending on your application, you may want to consider the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061. We have had very few customer complaints with the Roadmaster products quality. This anti-rattle works in the same way as the Blue Ox, just a slightly different design.

this is a solid product, does what it's designed to do and heavy duty. 429726

The device really works and increases handling safety. Hitch slop was allowing my flat tow to move 1 inch either way sideways whenever it pleased (hit a bump or whatever), this set up a series of necessary steering corrections, while the two vehicles moved back and forth influencing each other. The process was quite frightening actually! I reached out to blue Ox for help and they suggested The Immobilizer might help . The tech support agent said I had to immobilize both the receiver and the 10 inch drop receiver I had. so I bought and installed two. I tightened up both and removed all play with dramatic results. I blame the Largest rv dealer in Florida for installing the hitch the way they did. They chose the components and charged me $2500. They obviously should know 2 inches of total slop at the hitch point was a total disaster! Even I know that now! I was a novice then. I know better now. I can't fault Blue Ox This product should be used more. John K. Boone Florida 294861

This product did a really good job of stabilizing my motorcycle carrier , and keep it from rocking. I had used another product before this , but it did not work nearly as good as this one. This one holds the receiver solidly to the hitch ,and is good quality. 285234



- BX88224
by:

Works great, if a little pricey. Make sure there is space for it around the collar and on the shank of the ball carrier. That said, it is very compact. 451886

I use this with a Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III and it works great - it completely eliminates any 'wiggle' between the hitch and the ball mount. I had to grind away a bit of the immobilizer because it was interfering with the ball mount - no biggie. The attached photo shows where I removed a bit of the bracket. 251712

My brand new F 150 had a sloppy reciever....no matter what brand hitch I used. This little device put an absolute stop to that fraction of a second "bump" whenever I accelerated or braked. I feel a lot safer now. 554474



- BX88224
by:

looks to be totally what I have been looking for to get rid of that annoying rattle on the back of my truck, and the annoying slop when trailer is hooked up...also will make it even more difficult for my insert to be stolen... now has 4 more fasteners, with 2 having to be cut to remove insert unless thieves are also carrying wrenches, and after a winter of road salt and it getting rusted on they will have to have a hacksaw to remove it... I will be installing it today 1-10-2020. 737191

by:

What a great product! This holds the stinger to the hitch very tight and stops the movement and rattle completely. It works very well, but in order to take the stinger off, you must remove this first. This is a great product and recommend it highly! 734566

I tow a vehicle behind a 35' RV. With the rear view camera I could watch the vehicle sway as much as 6 inches side to side when changing lanes and I could also feel a pull from side to side during lane changes. I bought two of your hitch stabilizers and put one at the receiver on the motorhome with the second one at the end of the extension hitch, where the tow bar is attached. The car is now rock solid and does not sway from side to Side in the slightest. I can see it, and feel it. I would recommend this product to any RV owner. To me it is a safety feature that takes some of the stress out of long days on the road in a 35 ft. RV with a Ford Edge behind it. 730555



- BX88224
by:

This is my second time purchasing this device, because it was familiar. Weak links are the nuts and bolts can be easily stripped if over tightened and after multiple uses. It’s an expensive device, and seems replacement hardware is not sold separately. At $80 bucks a pop, gets costly to replace. The first one I had, one of the 1/4” anchors began to bend and eventually broke from its weld. I’ll be watching the new one for similar wear/tear. Had the first for two years and used maybe 10 times. I expected a little more longevity and durability for the higher end price. 723108



- BX88224
by:

It definitely stops the rattling. I move it between two cars and for one of the cars, did not fit because I have very little spacing between the receiver and the hitch and where the safety chains latch to the receiver - rectified by cutting a small corner off of this item which was no problem with a jigsaw. Highly recommended product. 719667



- BX88224
by:

Excellent product! Does exactly what it was designed to do! 717828



- BX88224
by:

These really work! It's great to not have the wiggle in the hitch. There is no noise that comes from the hitch anymore moving around in the receiver. The one thing to think about is that even though it is easy to attach, once it is on, it's not simple to take off. Since I am using this on my towbar with my motorhome, I now just leave the towbar attached to the motorhome rather than taking is off and storing it in one of the storage bins. I just use my towbar cover now all the time when the towbar is not in use. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to eliminate the noise and wiggle that you get from your hitch. 710622

by:

Have bought a number of items and have always been completely satisfied with the products and customer service.. 706086



- BX88224
by:

This took the wiggle out of the hitch almost immediately, but it needs a little tightening after initial use to cinch it down tightly. Definitely recommended! 704088



- BX88224
by:

The product is excellent, but I give it 4 stars due to difficulty in installing. I guess I'm kinda slow, but the directions for instruction were pretty much worthless. Barely, and I mean barely, enough length to bolt correctly due to the bolts being rather short. Once done, however, it is locked very, very tight and has not needed adjusting in the year I have had it installed. 649130



- BX88224
by:

Worked as advertised. Used it on the lower part of my drop hitch and it firmed up the connection. I would have liked to also put one on the top of the drop hitch where it connects to the MH receiver, but it would not fit. The flange on the receiver is wider and too close to the MH rear panel. At least one connection is solid. 634391

Ask the Experts about this Blue Ox Hitch Anti-Rattle

  • Blue Ox Hitch Immobilizer Recommendation for Front Hitch of 2014 Jeep Wrangler
    The two popular trailer hitch sizes are 2 inch and 2-1/2 inch which we have Blue Ox Immobilizers for both sizes as the part # BX88224 for a 2 inch hitch or part # BX88225 for a 2-1/2 inch hitch. Front hitches are basically always 2 inch hitches and on a lighter duty vehicle like a Jeep Wrangler this would especially be the case. I would be shocked if you didn't have a 2 inch hitch size but what you can do is double check by measuring the inner dimensions of the hitch.

She confirmed that the U-bolts used with the Immobilizers are grade 5 steel, but they are not stainless steel. The nuts that are included with the Immobilizer are hex whiz lock nuts.

    The Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II # BX88224 that you referenced is actually designed for use on 2 inch hitches that have the lip around the edge of them that your hitch has. Basically you would install this on your hitch with the smaller flanges of the product going on behind that lip and the larger lip will make contact with the ball mount.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle For 2 Inch Receiver Hitch With Too Much Slack In Ball Mount
    A 2.25 inch hitch by 2.25 inch inside hitch receiver measurement is not anything standard. You won't be able to find a ball mount in that size so I can't give you a perfect fit application. That would require customized parts being made. My recommendation is to use a 2 inch ball mount with an anti-rattle device like the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II - 2" Hitches # BX88224. I've attached a link to our 2 inch ball mounts for you as well as our anti-rattle options. Another...

  • Can Movement of Bikes and Bike Carrier be Eliminated on Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Carriers
    On any trailer hitch mounted bike carrier, especially platform style carriers there is going to be some movement of the carrier in the hitch receiver. Its just physics at work! There are things you can do to keep movement to a minimum. Some bike carriers will have a threaded hitch pin that pulls the shank of the carrier tight to the inside of the receiver. These will eliminate some movement but not all. So the solution is to use a secondary anti-rattle device. If you have a 2 inch hitch...

Many other devices work well, but only attack the issue in one of the two directions, where this one really does both.
