Video Transcript for Malone Hitch Anti-Rattle - Standard Anti-Rattle - MPG908 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Malone anti-rattle hitch lock system. This unit's designed to stop movement between the receiver tube of your hitch and the accessory that's installed inside the hitch. It's great for eliminating rattle and wobble. It installs quickly and easily. The unit's going to feature a nice heavy-duty steel construction with corrosion-resistant coating, so you don't have to worry about rust or corrosion buildup. It's going to come with all necessary hardware for your installation.

It comes with detailed installation instructions to walk you through the installation process step by step. The unit can be installed from the top like this or from the bottom as needed, depending on the hitch installation and the room that's available. What I want to do just to make it a little easier is simply show you how it installs and how effective it is. It's a really simple process, so I have a hitch here, and I simply have a ball mount installed inside of it. I just want you to notice that we do have a lot of play inside the receiver tube of the hitch. So this system, this Malone anti-rattle hitch lock system, is really going to help take out any play, rattle, and wobble that we may have. Again, I did mention that it can be installed from the top like this, or it can be installed from the bottom.

For this application, I'm going to install it here on the bottom. So what you would do is place the plate where you want it. The U-bolt goes over the shank of the accessory that's installed in your hitch. Then you simply just need to install the hardware. We're going to place on the flat washer, followed by the split lock washer, and then we'll place the nut on there.

We'll go ahead and get that started. Go ahead and get it hand tight. We're going to repeat that for the other side as well. So the way that this unit works is part of that plate makes contact with the bottom of the receiver tube of the hitch. The other part of the plate makes contact with the shank of the accessory that's in the hitch. Then the U-bolt makes contact with the shank of the accessory as well.

As you tighten, basically with it in this position, the U-bolt is putting downward force on the shank, and the bracket is putting upward force on the bottom of the receiver tube. So it's like it's sandwiching together, which is going to draw the shank to one end or one side of the receiver tube. That's going to be what really takes out the rattle and play from within the hitch. Then all we have to do is tighten up the hardware. I do like to ensure that it's evenly tightened on both sides. So you can just work your way from side to side until you feel like it's evenly tightened. Then if we try to shake that accessory, you can see that we don't have any play within that receiver tube. That's going to do it for today's look at the Malone anti-rattle hitch lock system.

I recommend Etrailer to anyone needing ANYTHING pertaining to trailers and hitches. These anti rattle brackets stopped all the noise coming from the back of our motorhome. I had to use an 18 inch extension which by the way is a BEAST and needed two anti rattle brackets. No more rattles! Etrailer suggested them and didn't try to sell me anything else. Really admire this company! 604383

This clamp stopped my load distributing hitch from walking side to side in my trucks receiver hitch. Something I like, because you can feel the side load as it shifts side to side without this little clamp. Now it feels solid, no more side to side slop. 640839

I put the trailer hitch "tightener" on my distribution hitch that had a lot of movement, the slight 1/16 in movement left/ right /up/ down made a lot of noise and contributed to my trailer swaying. Once I installed it, in under ten minutes, I could not budge the hitch at all making for a nice tight fit, no noise, no added sway. I highly recommend this for anyone hauling heavy trailers for any distance. 651950

I am very pleased with this purchase. This a simple little part for a receiver hitch that does an amazing job. This product is excellent at quieting down the hitch rattle and also prevents premature wear of the receiver and hitch. Well worth the money! 469539

Looks very well made, solid. I won't leave it installed until November when I'll be towing every day until March. Seems to keep the hitch snug when it's used for a more permanent installation. 520679

I am very satisfied with this setup supplied by etrailer.com. FYI, don't skimp on getting this little (heavy duty) part as it keeps the racket down in the back. It can actually be considered a necessity in my opinion as without it there's a whole lot of clankin' and bangin' goin on without it. Just sayin. Thanks folks (at etrailer.com) 721949

I’ve done biz w/ etrailer for five years. Always great products at good prices. Unbeatable staff / customer service. The Malone product is perfect. Heavy duty at its best. You won’t be disappointed !!! 663491

Product was exactly as advertised and delivered quickly. 652474



- MPG908
by:

Great price. Simple. Easy to install/remove. Very rugged (1/2” Diameter U-bolt vs. lighter duty versions, powder coated thick steel plate). I love the flexibility to use with steel plate on top or under the receiver/hitch. Love product confidence/ strength that it’s endorsed/intended for towing inserts vs. just light duty bike carriers, kayak & boat carriers, etc. like some other devices. Once installed, it is slightly more effective at minimizing up/down movement than side to side (until very tight). Once tightened with a wrench/socket it likely won’t loosen too easily, but over time vibrations may in fact cause just that. (-1 Star) Adding a metal jam nut will prevent that. 664822

The anti rattle device pictured has a 1/2" U-bolt and the plate is 5/16" thick which makes it a very stout (meaning "not flimsy") tool for making the ball mount and receiver hitch into a one piece unit eliminating that clunking and rattling normally heard when starting, stopping and going over bumps. It's another example of how something so simple can be so useful. Since installing it, I've used the trailer on several runs and no longer have that rattling sound telescoping through the tow vehicle. I do consider it's purchase "money well spent for a quality product". 638493

I always get needed trailer parts from etrailer. Have never been disappointed in the products or process. Same is true for the Malone Anti-rattle. I was concerned it would not be "heavy duty" enough to actually work for my application but it appears to be what I needed. Haven't used it yet but I'm confident it will control my trailer's "rattle". 640681

etrailer can supply items of such poor quality that I would never allow them to be installed on my RV. Didn't even fully unwrap item, saw how cheaply it was made, requested full refund. etrailer required me to pay a restocking fee. I will never buy from etrailer again. 634539

This product surprised me. Easy to install, and eliminated all the annoying noises that a receiver makes with a hitch in it. I don't take mine out very often, so this is very useful. Will buy another for the other truck shortly. 606698

Ask the Experts about this Malone Hitch Anti-Rattle

  • Can the Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System Be Used With a Weight Distribution System
    The Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System part # MPG908 will help hold the shank of the weight distribution system inside the receiver tube more securely. Therefore, you won't have as much side to side or front to back movement with the shank portion. I have attached a photo of this device used with a weight distribution system. The only disadvantage of this is that it is an extra step each time you go to install or remove the shank. If you are having issues with your weight distribution...

  • Will The Curve In The Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock Plate Dig Into The Hitch Receiver
    The curve in the Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System part # MPG908 is designed for extra stability to not allow the shank of the accessory to move up and down. It is what holds the shank of accessory tight. I have attached a photo of how this is supposed to be installed between the hitch collar and the shank of the accessory. The curved portion of the Malone Anti-rattle will not touch the hitch.

  • How to Reduce Rattle Coming From a Cushioned Ball Mount
    The Malone Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock System, # MPG908, would work well with your Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount, # AMSC8. The Malone anti-rattle device will help stop the unwanted movement between the ball mount and your vehicle's receiver hitch. However, by using an anti-rattle device on this ball mount you will loose most of the cushioned function of the your ball mount.

  • Can Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System Be Used with Aluminum Ball Mount
    Yes, the Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System # MPG908 will work really well with an aluminum ball mount like the Fastway # DTBM4200 that you referenced. This is simply going to tighten up the attachment point between the ball mount and hitch receiver so that you don't get all that movement you described during travel. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Locking Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin For Use with Curt Dual Ball Mount
    If I'm understanding you correctly, you're asking if the hitch pin on the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101 will work with the Curt # D210; the answer to that question is yes. The hitch pin will work on the 2" receiver of the Curt # D210. Your best bet to eliminate sway on your dual receiver is by using something like the Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System # MPG908 in conjunction with the hitch pin to help eliminate sway and rattle on the upper receiver.
