QH Dims

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.


USE W ACCESSORIES - BAR ON TOP

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.


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.

Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches - RM-061

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (1107 Customer Reviews)

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.

by:

Seems to work. 3k miles in rain and snow and no noticable corrosion yet. I like the design since allows to be installed up or down orientation, which helps when having a dual hitch extender and needing to dodge interferences.



by: 01/10/2024

This adapter is only for round pins. If the 7-pin connector on your vehicle has flat blades instead of round pins, this adapter will not work.

I'll give it five stars because I expect it works fine, I just didn't realize I needed to check the pins. No fault of the part.



by:

This is exactly what I was looking for and required less than two minutes to install. The cylindrical profile allows it to accommodate both common geometries found on ball mounts - I.e. flat surface and 90-degree angles. It does cost more than other devices you can find, but IMHO it’s worth it!



by:

After searching and bought other anti-rattle brackets only to find out that these did not fit, this one has been the only one I found that fits the width of my hitch extension. I am satisfied with this product. It is easy to put on and off between trips.



by:

Good addition to add extra support 2” E-bike receiver hitch. The Swagman bike carrier is a great hitch but I wanted the extra security being on the back of our trailer.

Excellent result in eliminating the excess hitch clearance that leads to additional movement of the e-bike rack. Rock solid piece of mind when going down the road.



by:

I just bought a new bike rack for my E-bike, and in order to be able to put the tailgate down with the e-bike on the rack, I had to install a 7" extender on to the 2" hitch. The bike rack already had a anti-rattle device built in, but the 7" extension moved around a lot, making my e-bike sway real bad while on the road. A simple and excellent fix was installing the Quiet Hitch, an Anti-rattle Ring. After I installed it, the bike rack was solid as a rock. Installed in just a few minutes, and very well made. (Of course, it's made in the good old USA.). Made by Roadmaster. Good Job!

The quiet hitch is still working as good as the first day I put it on. Its been a slow year, with the flu and all, but I expect it to be a great tool for years to come.



by:

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.

After a year, the hitch rattles slightly more than it did when I first installed it yes, the torque is still proper but still nowhere near as bad as it did before I purchased it.



by:

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).

Thanks for for following up . Quiet Hitch QH is continuing to work out great.



by:

I order the roadmaster quiet hitch from E-trailer and it seems to be working OK, it's taken out about half of the wobble on my hitch Accessory. I give E-trailer of 5 star for shipping it out, it only took about a week. And I give the product about 4 stars because it is built sturdy and seems to be working OK.

Matt J.

Ive had to replace both nuts on both sides due to the fact they just did not seem to tighten down and stay tight. I went ahead and bought hardened nuts instead and they seem to be working out. It still only keeps the rattle down to about 50 or 70 but its better than nothing



by:

A year later and this anti-rattle hitch product still works great with a variety of bicycle and motorcycle hitch carriers I have been using. Great product.



by:

The quiet hitch has proven to be an excellent purchase. Not only does it reduce the noise of the luggage rack rattling while driving, but it also keeps the luggage rack from shaking and therefore, keeps the luggage more secure. I highly recommend purchasing this item if you are going to be attaching a luggage rack to your hitch. I have not hauled anything with the tow hitch, and therefore don't have any experience to rate in that area.



by:

The product is effective beyond my hopes. All the rattling of my 6" drop hitch has stopped when under load or just driving without the trailer. I couldn't be happier.

Doug O.

Still works great with no rattles. Still looks new after repeated dips at the boat ramp.



by:

Very disappointed! Called to ensure this would work with my Hollywood RV bike rack. It does not. The Hollywood rack needs three inches of depth to the center of the pin hole. Aggravated that I have to repackage, return and now get the correct extender.



by:

Quinn was excellent. He listen to all of my challenges and I wish I would’ve talk to you guys sooner. This item worked perfect for what we need to use it for on our bike rack on the RV. Thank you all for a great job.



by:

This is my second Quiet hitch. This one will be used on the tow bar. These things make the hitch connections SOLID. Recommend!



by:

I just fitted the Blue Ox towbar, for 6 inch, drop/rise, receivers. Also, the, Roadmaster quiet hitch lock, for 2 inch hitches. Both are excellent products, strong and very well made. There is no movement, with my new hitch lock in place. Two pictures included, showing both, attached to my Subaru Ascent, the drop hitch now sits at 15 1/2 inches above the ground. I will send more pictures of the lights, also purchased from etrailer.com when my mobility scooter carrier is completed.



by:

This product has been flawless. I have a hitch extension with a riser, attached to a hitch swing out mount and then attach a 3 bike rack to that. The point is my set up puts a huge amount of stress on this anti wobble device and it has handled it perfectly. Did I mention I’ve driven this set up hundreds of miles off road? Washboard roads and plenty of off road in Baja Mexico. I originally tried one of the flat steel plate anti wobble devices, it ended up bending. I can not recommend this round anti wobble device enough!



by:

Easy to install, only took a couple minutes and solved my noise and tolerance problem between trailer hitch and receptacle.

Perry A.

Still working great, a solid extension of my truck!



by:

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.



by:

Seems to help minimize the jerking and rattling that occurs when pulling a U-Haul trailer, especially when it’s empty but also when loaded. I obey the recommendations for applying the proper torque on the nuts. Might be nice if the manufacturer would stamp or etch the torque specs on the steel bar since the packaging is long gone and this item is not used every day. But overall I am happy with it.

Ralph

After a handful of uses, it has worked well. Less rattle.



by:

Having a Jeep with a hatch you get a lot of trailer noise inside of the vehicle. I bought this product hoping to reduce that sound and it works flawlessly. It eliminates the clunk of the hitch moving around especially with a light load. Plus it also adds a little extra security with the hitch when parked somewhere with your load. Great product!



by:

This invention is exactly what I needed. I pull several trailers and also a camper. It takes all the clunk and rattle out of the hitch. Its the real deal!

Donald

5/9/2019

It still works great and I would not pull one of my trailers without it!



by:

The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch is a great attachment for any one using a hitch. Most hitches have a certain amount of play in hem and his will stop the hitch from rattling while your towing anything.



by:

The Roadmaster Quiet is one Great item, in fact I have both the 2' And the 1'1/4 for my JEEP my boat trailer my bike rack and my basket rack that goes from a 1"1/4 to a 2" the Quiet Hitch keeps all my receivers very stable and quiet, as before I had wobble and noise, just a GREAT item !



by:

Simple and functional.
I use it with
a dual reviewer hitch to carry my bike (one up USA) while I pull my camper. No clanking or rattle, and the bike doesn't flop around.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Device for 1-1/4 to 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Adapter
    The Roadmaster Quiet hitch would be a great choice. You might actually need two of the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Anti-Rattle Devices. You'll need part # RM-061-125 for the connection between your adapter and the receiver hitch, and the Quiet Hitch designed for 2 inch hitches, part # RM-061 for the connection between the adapter and the hitch accessory. If the hitch accessory already has an anti-rattle device like some bike racks do, then you'd just need the # RM-061-125. Keep in mind that...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for a 1-1/4 inch Hitch
    I do have an anti-rattle device that will work on a 1-1/4 inch hitch, but the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 that you referenced is designed to only work on 2 inch hitches and would not work for you. Check out the No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge # RM-061-125. This product will work on your 1-1/4 inch hitch.

  • Using Roadmaster Quiet Hitch with Weight Distribution System
    The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 referenced in your question does not have a specific weight capacity. Because it will not be supporting really any weight during towing, there simply isn't a listed weight limit. With that being said, the unit should have no issue supporting any initial weight that might be temporarily applied when setting up your weight distribution system. As you mentioned, when using this device with a weight distribution system, you will want to position the U-bolt...

  • Do I Need a Deep Socket to Install the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch
    The hex nuts on the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 are 9/16" and while a short socket can do the job, a deep socket will likely be the best solution if available. If you can't get the regular socket to work on the bottom hex nut a crescent wrench will also work.

  • What Type Of Metal Is the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Made Of
    I spoke to my contact at Roadmaster about the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches part # RM-061 and they informed me that all three components (u-bolt, bar, and fasteners) are made of zinc plated steel so they will be corrosion and rust resistant.

  • How to Tell if the Quiet Hitch # RM-061 Fits OEM Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Toyota Tundra
    The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 fits the majority of trailer hitches out there as long as they have a ring or collar around the receiver. We don't have a 2017 Toyota Tundra with an OEM trailer hitch that I can test the Quiet Hitch on but I am attaching a photo with the inner dimensions that you can use to see if it will fit your application.

  • Anti Rattle Device That Can Be Used with Weight Distribution
    With the amount of spring bar force at work with your weight distribution it is surprising that you are experiencing any type of movement in your hitch.

    The Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device, # STL2, is designed to work with Thule bike racks specifically.

The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, # RM-061 can be used on the connection between the hitch extender and the hitch receiver itself. Keep in mind that using a hitch extender will DECREASE the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent.
