Video Transcript for MaxxTow Anti Rattle Clamp Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp. This is designed for 2" trailer hitch receivers. The part number is MT70258. To start off we're going to head out to the test course with just a standard cargo carrier loaded down with 200 pounds. As you can see as we head though the slalom there's some side-to-side movement with our carrier. You can imagine once the capacity we're to get up closer to 300, 400, or 500 pounds, how much movement we'd actually have side-to-side. It may give you a sensation of movement inside the truck, which might not be comfortable.

When we get to our bumps you can see how far that carrier actually moves up and down, generating a lot of noise and a lot of stress. Now we'll head back through the test course with our clamp in place. As you can see, that side-to-side movement is literally a thing of the past. We're not going to have to worry about that weight transfer side-to-side, and feeling it in the vehicle. As we get on our bumps look at what a difference we have here. A lot less noise, and a lot less up and down movement.

This will keep our cargo from being bounced around, and jostled around too much. To do our installation you'll see we're going to place the shank of our cargo carrier into our hitch, and we secure it with our clip. You can see the movement and play that currently exists there, that's not something that we want heading down the road, especially if we're transporting heavy items. What we'll do is slide our MaxxTow clamp right up to the face of our receiver tube, and then we're going to tighten up the two bolts here at the bottom. As we do this our two bolts are going to come up, and they're going to make contact with the bottom of our hitch, see there. We're going to use 5/8 wrench, and we want to tighten those bolts down, get them nice and snug. Sometimes tightening one is going to loosen the other, so you want to make sure you go back and forth. Then we can take our jam nuts, we're going to thread those right up to the bottom, and that does a great job of locking these bolts out, so they won't move in and out.

As you can see now, we've got a really nice solid fit. We don't have any movement in our connection point here. This works out great for cargo carriers, for bike racks, whatever it is that you want to use. The thing I like about the system is that we're not fighting gravity, or anything like that. The carrier naturally is going to want to be down as far as it can be in our receiver tube.

This does a great job of holding it in place. We're not going to have that bouncing that we're used to. We've all seen those cargo carriers going down the road bouncing up and down, you thought for sure something was going to fall out of them. This is going to eliminate that movement, both up and down and side-to-side. You can see the clamp itself. This is going to have a nice corrosion resistant finish to it, just like our bolts, so we're not going to have to worry about a bunch of corrosion and things like that. As you can see here now all that movement that we had, it's going to be a thing of the past. This is also going to help to reduce noise that we get out of the cargo carriers. A lot of times they can be pretty noisy as we're heading down the road. This ramp, it creates a little bit of noise, but as for the carrier itself, nice and quiet. Now that we've seen what a great improvement's been made that's going to complete our look at the MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp for 2" receiver hitches, part number MT70258.

Awesome result. Great product for the m oney. 525318



- MT70258
by:

Product is simple and effective...... performs as described. Only consideration is if there is a substantial "bead" of weld at the end of the receiver tube since this is where the bolts will bite into when tightened and if the bead is large enough, it presents a rounded surface rather than a flat one for the bolts to bite into potentially causing a "walking" situation. 502384


Comments

Did have to finally grind the landing zones for the tightening bolts flat, but its in place and performs well. Ends that nasty rattling!

I looked at several different devices to stop the receiver movement/noise and selected this one. Glad I did. Works great. Solid construction. I actually ordered a second one. 488901



- MT70258
by:

Looks like a good product but it did not fit on my 2018 Jeep Compass. Could not install it with bolt side down because the part of the Jeeps hitch where you attach safety chains to where too close to the receiver opening. I could only install it with bolts on top, but even then, it could fit over the receiver very well. The bolts were on the outer lip of the receiver and gauged the lip pretty good because it has a rounded lip instead of a flat lip. Not happy about that, but it did prevent rattling for the trip however, it looked like it was about to fall off. I ordered something else and will not use this one on my vehicle again. 582051



- MT70258
by:

Product seems well made, solid and seems to holding the hitch receiver steady - no more knocking or bike rack wobbling coming from the back end! Will update after further use. Fast shipping and great service from etrailer as always! 550159

by:

I am verry happy with the Product. It take a bit to get used to it on mounting it to the welded ring on the hitch to keep it from sliding off. Ones installed, it will keep the Bike Racke from ratteling. 471702

Not a fan of this piece if equipment. I could not keep it tight and in place. Got one of the U-shaped stabilizers and it works like a charm. 565150

Does not work on my John Deere Gator HPX615E. Neither front or rear receiver. Pay close attention to how your receiver is made One star was given not for product quality but to warn others that it may not be suitable for certain applications and it’s the purchasers responsibility to verify before ordering. . 525222


Comments

This anti-rattle clamp does require a collar on the hitch receiver to attach to. Most John Deere hitches are not designed with a collar.

This receiver stabilizer is perfect for keeping my bike rack and other slide-in light duty hitch devices from wiggling around. This is not sold locally in Indianapolis in ANY store. 323359



- MT70258
by:

Not happy. Unit did not fit my Jeep Grand Cherokee properly. Not enough clearance with the way it's designed. As a result of did stay hooked up properly came off and bolts vibrate it out first time I used it. haven't touched it since then. I'm sure if you didn't have the fitment issues with the design of the hitch it would work fine. 538733



- MT70258
by:

Fit well. decent for the price. Think it could have used a few more tack welds on the bottom plate where the bolts go through. Tightened up ok 482300



- MT70258
by:

The unit itself is stout, The threads were a little messed up (touched up with a file), and works great. The only issue I had was with my truck and the way the chain hook up works (they are round and stick out very far) which makes this harder to use. I'll most likely have to grind the edges to make it fit, but this is no fault of the unit, just the truck. most new trucks are really making the hitch's low profile and these may present a challenge. Again for the price, and build, it's a great unit. 389747



- MT70258
by:

I’m very glad I bought it. Only two things wrong with it. 1 it’s made in China. 2 if you have a drop hitch like I do, you might have to cut a notch in the bottom where the gusset hits the clamp preventing the stinger from going in far enough to insert the hitch pin. Other than those two things it works great. My hitch has NEVER been quieter and stable. Very satisfied with the results. 517476

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! 403921

It works just fine now. I had to modify the hitch collar and the bolts on the keeper to make it work. 263901

Excellent and prompt service. Received the product in just a few days. After installing on my hitch receiver I can move the whole vehicle with the hitch without all the noisy rattling. Very pleased with this purchase. 561061

This product works as described. We use it on a generator carrier on the front of our pickup. It has well for over 7000 miles of use. It keeps the carrier rattle/movement free and doesn't work loose on the road. If you're looking for something to take the movement out of your item when it's in the receiver, this thing just works. 557797

I actually ordered two different devices from two different vendors. By far, this was/is the better product. Completely solved the wobble issue. 331176

The product seemed to be good quality, but it did not really solve my problem of the bike rack rattling around in the hitch. 640488



- MT70258
by:

Your product has a couple of structural defects: 1. With the bolts on the bottom, when the vehicle goes through a dip in the road, the bottom of the bolts grinds on the road. Your bolts are too long. 2. With the bolts on the bottom, when I went through a dip in the road and they scraped the asphalt, the result was a broken weld. Having China make your product is not a good idea. 3. With the bolts on the bottom, the tips of the bolts are about 1 3/4" below the bottom of the vehicle's receiver. The bolts should be on the top. But that is not the way the setup is pictured. So I like your product's potential, but not the way it is engineered or designed. 638875

If you are interested another anti-rattle device that does not have the clearance issues and as a little different design is the RM-061.

I am a DIY kinda Guy and I found the detailed videos an excellent study guide for how to, along with tips and tricks to make it easier. I haul three different trailers and each has been pulled using the tow bar and wire harness purchased from etrailer with great satisfaction. When I purchased my Dodge Journey from a Dodge dealer, they wanted $2000.00 to install a Curt Hitch, I did it for much less with etrailer and still had money left to actually go on the vacation instead of putting it into the same exact hitch package I bought right here. As I said I'm a DIYer and I will take all the free advice and help I can get. etrailer helped me to Get R done... 634057

- MT70258
by:

Device works but always seems to work itself loose no matter how tight I Tork the two bolts. I attempted to remove the bolts so I could grind down their ends to points thinking a point would dig into the steel but the bolts can’t be removed. The thread is cut so the bolt can’t be removed. Guess that’s a design preventing the loss of a bolt on the road. Great idea but, in my opinion, could use improvements. 610607



- MT70258
by:

Bolts need to be back farther so they are behind the metal lip around reciever 602271



- MT70258
by:

Use it on my 2006 Tahoe. I had to grind down the top of the factory hitch to get a flat surface. I use it when I attach my external carrier. It eliminates the sway and movement while traveling and prevents the droop that can cause it to scrape. Highly recommend. 576752



- MT70258

This made the hitch so it feels like a solid connection no slap or rattling any more. 576500



- MT70258
by:

This may work on other hitches, but not on a 2017 Tundra. There’s no way to positively lock the 2 bolts without it working it’s way loose. Not worth returning. 566650

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow Hitch Anti-Rattle
Do you have a question about this Hitch Anti-Rattle?


  • Can MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp # MT70258 be Used with a Travel Trailer
  • The MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp # MT70258 is an accessory anti-rattle device so provided you are using it on the back of your travel trailer in a hitch mounted accessory, such as a cargo carrier, you will be good to go. But it is not rated for use on the tow vehicle for towing a trailer. If that is what you are looking for I recommend the similar Pro Series device # PS63091. I have linked videos of both devices for you.

  • Comparing MaxxTow Anti Rattle Devices MT70283 and MT70258
  • They both work great. The difference is the part # MT70258 does use the two bolts, has a galvanized finish, and has a longer sleeve. The part # MT70283 uses 4 bolts, is powdercoated and does not have a sleeve at all basically. If it were me I would go with the 2 bolt version as it works great, will install a bit quicker, and because it is galvanized.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Device for Towing Boat Trailer
  • While we do have anti-rattle devices that are designed for use when towing, the MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp # MT70258, as you mentioned, cannot be used for this purpose. This particular device can only be used for non-trailer loads such as bike racks and cargo carriers. For an anti-rattle device that you can use while towing your boat trailer, I recommend the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061. This hitch immobilizer will eliminate rattle within the receiver with a simple bolt-on installation....

  • What Can Help Control the Bouncing and Shaking Seen on Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers
  • The bouncing and shaking that you saw in the video is the norm on the majority of cargo carriers on the market. The extended location from the hitch causes the carrier to bounce more than a hitch accessory that might sit closer to the vehicle. There are a few products that can help with the bounce. An anti-rattle device, like # MT70258 for 2 inch hitches, can help by securing the cargo carrier's hitch shank to the hitch receiver. The bolts will push the shank up tight against the top...

  • Is Rear End Sag Normal When Using MaxxTow Hitch-Mount Motorcycle Carrier MT70101
  • Thank you for your purchase of the Draw-Tite 2-inch hitch # 76034 and the MaxxTow Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101. When a hitch carrier like this is installed and loaded up with a motorcycle (even a relatively light one like a smaller dirt bike) there will always be some rear end sag on the vehicle. In the same way, a vehicle like a pickup truck that can have a front hitch installed to allow use of a snowplow will have the same issue but only on the other end of the vehicle. The...

  • Will MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Anti-Tilt Bracket Fit Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch?
  • The MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier, # MT70100, is designed to fit 2" x 2" trailer hitches, so it will fit with Hidden Hitch trailer hitches as long as they are 2" x 2". Anti-tilt brackets are also designed to fit by size, so a product such as the MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp for 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers, # MT70258, would work with a 2" Hidden Hand trailer hitch. I have included links to videos of both the cargo carrier and anti-rattle clamps for you.

  • Compatibility of Anti-Rattle Device with Weight Distribution and 2-1/2 Inch to 2 Inch Reducer Sleeve
  • You can use an anti-rattle to reduce the movement and noise in your trailer hitch. The best option is the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer III for 2-1/2" Hitch with 2" Adapter # BX88312 because it is designed for that precise purpose and limits both vertical and horizontal movement. You can use the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-062 which will help secure the shank in your receiver. This will help with either the vertical or horizontal movement but not both. It will improve the stability...

  • The MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp for 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers - 2 Bolt # MT70258 fits right onto the flared surround you mentioned on the Curt Hitch Receiver attached to your 2013 Lexus RX450H. The integrated sleeve on this adapter is a great help in stabilizing your accessories for a much quieter ride.

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Setup that Uses Dual Hitch Adapter
  • Since the MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Clamp # MT70258 that you referenced is not designed for towing and you will be towing it would not be the best option. A better option would be the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch part # RM-061 which can be used when towing. This would work well for your setup too that has a dual recieve opening.

  • Does MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Device # MT70258 Fit Hitch Openings with Collar

  • Using a Stabilizing Hitch Clamp for a 80 Pound Cargo Carrier
  • The MaxxTow Anti-Rattle Hitch Clamp, part # MT70258, doesn't have a specific weight range that it's designed for. The weight won't really change its installation process, though going heavier, you'll want to double check the tightness of its bolts while you're using the clamp. I do recommend installing it prior to loading anything into your accessory for easiest use and installation, then after loading, double checking the bolt's tightness.
