Video Transcript for Gen-Y Hitch Receiver Anti-Rattle Clamp Review

Colin: Hey guys, Colin here at etrailer. Today, I'm going to take some time to show you guys the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp for any hitch mounted accessory that you might have. There's going to be three different sizes, we have all three of them set up. We have our inch and a quarter over there on our sedan, we have our two inch receiver on our half-ton pickup, and then we have our two and a half inch receiver on our three-quarter-ton pickup. We'll start by looking at the one on our two and a half inch receiver. They're all going to work the same, but they are different sizes.

We just wanted to give you a good look so you can match what's going to work with your vehicle.Now basically all it is, is a wedge on the outside of the bracket right here. This goes over the shank of your hitch accessory, whether it's a ball mount, bike rack, or even a cargo carrier, then the wedge just goes inside your hitch receiver a little bit. If you have trouble getting it in there, you can use a rubber mallet, just softly tap it in there. And then once you tighten up the Allen bolt on the top right here, and there's another one on the bottom side, that's just going to take away any rattling inside your hitch. We all know with these nice Gen-Y ball mounts and any other ball mount or cargo carriers you might use, they won't come with anti-rattle bolts.

So this is a nice and simple solution to take out that rattling, so you don't have to hear it while you're traveling.One thing I do want to point out is that if you're planning on using a two-inch shank, whether it be a ball mount or a cargo carrier on your two and a half inch hitch receiver, then this will not work that application. Because you do have to use that adapter sleeve to convert it from a two and a half inch receiver down to a two inch. And the one for the two and a half inch hitch sits over two and a half inch shanks, it's not small enough to fit over a two inch shank. Now over here, you can see with our two inch receiver, it's just a little bit smaller fits over our ball mount very nicely, and just wedges in there. Again, we'll shake it and show you it's really not moving at all.Now we're over here on our inch and a quarter receiver which is our standard ball mount, it's very small.

Sometimes with these inch and a quarters, it may be tough to get it in there. But like I said, if you needed a rubber mallet or something just to tap it in, you can do so. But as you can see again, no rattle in the hitch. Now, what I can do for you is go ahead and loosen this up so that you can see what that ball mount does without the anti-rattle clamp. So we'll just go ahead and loosen it.

So we got it loosened like that, now you can see a lot of play in there and it might not be noticeable when you're not towing anything. But honestly, I have done some towing with this Passat right here and virtually anything you put on is going to move the car around just because it's not built for towing anything too heavy. So anytime I stop or accelerate I can hear it go back and forth, and side to side when I'm turning.They're all going to have a really nice, durable steel construction, so it's going to last a long time and be very durable. And it's got a black powder coat finish, which helps it resist rust and corrosion. So if he leaves your ball mount or other accessory installed in your hitch for long periods of time, it'll do well through the elements. Now, it's very easy to install. Just grab your accessory you're going to mount into your hitch and then grab your sleeve, we'll slide that over the shank of our receiver. If you need to loosen up those bolts a little bit, go ahead and do so, so that it'll fit over the shank. So now we'll take our accessory, in this case our ball mount, and feed it into our hitch receiver. Now we'll just insert our pin and get the clip on there as well.Now from here, what we're going to do is, see how the wedge is on the left side and the top We're going to push down and pull our shank to the right, so that we can get the wedge inside our hitch receiver. Once you get it in there, you can hand tighten the Allen bolts right there and then grab the included tool. And tighten it up the rest of the way, and make sure you tighten both of them up. Now the bolt is tightened up, you can see there's no play in the shank of our hitch. So now we can get the rest of our Gen-Y ball mounts installed so we can hook up and tow.Well, thank you all for watching, and I hope this information helped you guys out. But that's going to do it for our look at the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp for the inch and a quarter, two inch, and two and a half inch receivers.

Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp for 2-1/2" Hitch Receivers - 325-GH-063

Average Customer Rating:  3.6 out of 5 stars   (36 Customer Reviews)

Use this anti-rattle device to keep your hitch-mounted accessory from rattling in your receiver. For use with 2-1/2" receivers. Slide over accessory's shank, insert shank into hitch receiver, then tighten down corners with included wrench.


Maybe ok for a small trailer, but the metal ended up just flattening down so much that it no longer takes the play out of the receiver. Better to get a clamping style I guess.


Pricey but it functions well. Removed all slack/rattling from hitch connection.


Poorly made, rusted after a month, set screws were steel that rusted in place, poor powder coat or paint, didn't last I had to cut the piece off with an angle grinder. Do not waste your money on this Poorly made product.

Premature rusting will occur if hitch accessories are left on the truck out in the elements, or if there are scratches or any sort of damage to the metal. I would cover the items in anti-corrosive paint and then lubricate this item once you put it on your accessory. Here are more tips in this help article attached:
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 05/24/2022


Not impressed it didn’t come with the Allen wrench and can’t tighten when installed because bumper is in the way if you go by the directions

This item slips over the accessory shank that you into the hitch receiver, so it should not interfere with the bumper.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 07/19/2022


Doesn't stay tight enough to take out hitch slop. Needsto be four set screws.


Great product!! Easy to install!! Thank you etrailer for the assistance on my order.. A++


Worked great to tighten up loose and noisy hitch. Reduced the banging and snatching of the trailer on the truck going over bumps and when loading and unloading. Sleek and better designed than all the others.


Gets the job done quietly..


You are doing good with all aspects. Sales, returns, information. No bad experiences


The anti-rattle clamp was a little tight. Had a hard time getting it in with the reducer sleeve to adapt to a 2” receiver. I drove it in and it is very tight. That is good! My F-250 has a 2 1/2” receiver, but most items I use it for are 2”. This will solve the proble.


Cleaner look on my hitch than the U bolt ones.


It definitely works keeps hich from rattling. But after a year the set screws rusted i broke 3 allen keys had to take split wedges to remove the hitch. Need to in stall antiseze on the set scews or get stainless steel set screws


My hitch doesn’t rattle anymore and a very easy install


I returned this item as I didn't use or need it


Perfect product to tighten up movement between truck receiver and ball shank. Durable and super Easy to install and remove when not needed. Highly recommend to insure tight, no rattle or movement in connection.

Great, works as advertised!
Larry - 04/29/2019


Great product. This solves the rattling problem with my ball hitch.

Product still works great and has never loosened up since initial tightening
Jimmy - 12/11/2020


Works great, used a hammer and punch and really sank it in there.


The thin edges were knurled and I had to file them smooth. After filing them then the paint was gone so it would start rusting. I couldn't get it tight enough in between the hitch and receiver to keep it from rattling. I would suggest saving your money on this item and not purchase it.


Easy to install. It wedges between the tongue and receiver and prevents rattle. Works as advertised.


Too hard to seat in the receiver & set screws slipped. sells a lot of very good products, this is not one of them.


Works as advertised. Love it and you will need one with a big hitch


Not what I was looking for but it works.


Good product that blends in with the receiver. Very firm with no rattle


Does what it's supposed to do, but unfortunately after only a year it's looking pretty rusty, especially the set screws.


Good concept, but the 2" sleeve needs to be longer.

  • 2-1/2 Inch to 2 Inch Reducer Sleeve for a Cargo Carrier
    To attach a 2" cargo carrier to a 2-1/2" receiver you will need the Reese Titan Reducer Sleeve 2-1/2" to 2" item # 58102. This sleeve slides into your receiver to accept 2" accessories or ball mounts. It will not reduce your hitches capacity. You won't need a anti-rattle pin it's a tight fit. Note: Ford OEM hitches have a tighter/different radius on their 2-1/2 inch receiver tubes. To accommodate the OEM Ford 2-1/2 inch hitch, the corners of a ball mount, shank or reducer sleeve may need...

  • Anti-Rattle Sleeve for a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch using a 2 Inch Reducer
    It sounds to me like you looking for an anti-rattle sleeve that will work with the 2-1/2" to 2" reducer sleeve you have on your Class V 2-1/2" trailer hitch receiver. For this you will need two sleeves, one for the 2-1/2" opening using part # 325-GH-063 and one for the 2" opening using part # GY88XR. The above anti-rattle sleeve will do a great job of reducing rattle and hitch movement. Each adapter has two hex head set screws which will both tighten the device to the ball mount and make...

  • Will the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Work with Weigh Safe Ball Mount?
    The Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp for 2-1/2" Hitch Receivers # 325-GH-063 will work well as long as you have the between 7/8 inch and 1/2 inch between the receiver collar and the drop shank. The Anti-Rattle will wedge between the mount and the receiver for a snug fit. The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2-1/2" Hitch - 8" Drop, 9" Rise # WS8-25 has enough room on most applications for this even though the shank is close as you stated with certain hitch receivers.

  • Is There a Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp Available for a 2 Hitch?
    The Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp # 325-GH-063 is actually designed for 2 1/2" hitches. For your 2" hitch, you will need the # GY88XR. This is smaller in size and is specifically designed for 2" hitches. The wedge style of these anti-rattle devices has offered very good stabilization when needed. I do need to mention that with this being a wedge style device, it may need a little force to get it in the hitch and working properly. I included a review video we have of the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamps...

  • Need Larger Version of Malone MPG908 Anti-Rattle Device for 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
    Malone doesn't make that particular anti-rattle device in a size for a 2-1/2 inch receiver, but might have a thing or two that could work for you. Take a look at the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp, part # 325-GH-063. The wedge portion is 1 inch long as you see in the photo, but it's tapered so it'll wedge in between the ball mount or hitch accessory shank and the receiver tube. The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, part # RM-062 is another possibility, the u-bolt portion is 15/32 of an inch thick. From...

  • Anti-Rattle Locking Hitch Pin for a 2019 Ford F-350
    The 2019 Ford F-350 is going to come equipped with either a 2-1/2" or 3" trailer hitch which is determined by measuring the inside of the receiver tube opening. The XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # SHP2040-XL will only work with a 2-1/2" trailer hitch and hollow shank (most ball mounts have a solid shank). If you have a solid shank you will want to use a different type of anti-rattle device and lock, the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-063 and Trailer Hitch Receiver...

    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1324 is going to be the adjustable ball mount which gives you the greatest distance from your hitch pin hole center. From the furthest hole center to ball center this is 16" length.

  • Anti-Rattle Device for 2-1/2 Inch to 2 Inch Sleeve Adapter
    I do have one other option for you to help stabilize what I assume is a 2" ball mount being used with a 2-1/2" to 2" sleeve inside a 2-1/2" receiver tube. For this, I recommend using the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-063 between the receiver tube and sleeve and the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # GY88XR between the sleeve and ball mount. This device would apply pressure is all directions and you don't have to worry about heavy duty towing capability. That said, there is really no...

  • Can the Thule EasyFold XT 2 TH903202 Be Used With a 2-1/2 Inch Receiver Tube Opening
    I called Thule and they have not yet tested the Thule EasyFold XT 2 Electric Bike Platform Rack part # TH903202 on a 2014 Ram 2500 with a 2-1/2" receiver tube opening. Therefore, in order to guarantee you don't have any issues with the integrated anti-rattle hitch pin fitting around the 2-1/2" receiver tube collar I recommend using the Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender part # HR26. However, using this adapter will reduce your hitch's tongue weight capacity by one third which is something...

  • Lock and Anti-Rattle Device That Can be Used with Solid Shank
    While you can both lock your accessory or ball mount as well as use an anti-rattle device, there isn't an option for a single device that will do both. For a solid shank what I recommend is using a simple hitch receiver lock, the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98880 with the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp # GY88XR, both of which are for 2" trailer hitches. These are also available if you have a 1-1/4" hitch (Lock # e98879, Clamp # RM-061-125) or 2-1/2" hitch (Lock # e98881, Clamp...
