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.

After several trips with the hitch rattling aggressively inside the receiver hitch I ordered this item from etrailer. It arrived a few days earlier than expected, and was super simple to install. The directions say to torque to 23 Lbs, but since I don't own a torque wrench I just tightened it to what I though would be tight yet not stressful for the unit. It installed with two nuts, followed by two additional nuts to lock the whole thing in place. You can put it on with the bar on the outside top of your hitch, or on the bottom outside of your hitch, depending on whether the ball tends to have a heavy tongue weight or not. I put it on with the bar on the outside top, and it has worked great. No more rattling or clunking when I change speeds or go over a speed bump. On nice feature, I think. We don't keep the hitch installed all the time on our Subaru, so I can quickly unbolt this clamp, remove the pin that holds the hitch in the receiver, and the task is quickly accomplished. Last comment: We have a factory supplied receiver hitch for our 2019 Subaru Ascent, and the space between the end of the receiver and the hitch is very short. Other anti-rattle devices would not have fit in that small space, nor fit around the very small space between the receiver and the rear bumper trim. This item fit easily, which is why I selected it to start with. 695095

I have both a front and back hitch mount on my 2006 Toyota Tacoma...pulling various sized trailers a lot and had a lot of rattling from the back receiver/hitch setup...most impressive the ease of installation and lack of noise after buying a RM-061 Roadmaster Quiet Hitch clamp! Am presently building a motorcycle carrier for my front hitch and it involved having a 6" riser added and then the receiver for the ramp, so I ordered 2 more of this item! It is going to be so nice not to have to listen to all that rattling as I go down the road! This is a great and easy to install product...heavy duty and should last forever! You will notice in the picture that I mounted it upside down compared to use in the video. This prevented me from having to sit on the ground and put the nuts on and tighten them from under the clamp...either way works fine! 47845

I never made it a year with this product. After the first installation the threads on the u-bolt started to coming off. Installed the nuts, in order, hand tight then torqued, then added the second nut and torqued that one with an beam type torque wrench. I used this device to stabilize my bicycle rack, so it's not like there was a lot of stress on it. I found a similar device on an online auction site that had a thicker bolt and didn't use the jam nut set-up. This works much better than this device ever did. 559278

Recent purchase of a Pro Series Cargo Carrier 63153. Assembly of the carrier was very straight forward but when installed into the 2" receiver, there was too much play at the receiver for my liking. Jonathan at etrailer recommended the RM-061 Quiet Hitch and got it to me while away on a trip. Installation was easy and it completely eliminated all the play. Now the cargo carrier acts like it is part of the truck, not and add on, a perfect solution!! 260511

Used in conjunction with a hitch extender to mount a hitch mount bike rack. Nice setup. 428255


Comments
They work great...we needed an extender due to the spare tire mounted on the back of the jeep to mount a bike rack. Extender works great for that purpose and the anti-tattle piece works great.

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. 547093


Comments
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

This Quiet Hitch performs as advertised. I think it was a tad expensive, but still worth the money. One of the advantages it has over the competition, is that when you are NOT using it, it becomes basically a TWO dimensional object for storage. This is not an insignificant positive feature compared to what else is offered out there. Actually is was one of the main reasons I bought this one. 155602

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! 402869

I installed this jewel of a part onto my hitch, drawbar in less than five minutes, and the heavy duty bike rack lost all its wobble when the bikes are loaded. This accessory is a must for all wobbly bike racks. It snugs down the draw bar as good as if it was welded onto the hitch. I highly recommend this accessory. 132885

Purchased the Swagman Traveler XCS Platform Style Rack bicycle rack mounted on a 15 ¾ “ Hidden Hitch ball mount. It allowed me to tow 2 bicycles mounted on the hitch and still tow our 15 ft. pop up camper. After a year on the road hauling the camper, I could not be happier. The Swagmen bike rack is superbly engineered and manufactured. The designers seemed to think of everything as far as usability and durability. I definitely recommend also using the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Anti Rattle device. It provided positive clamping to eliminate tow bar movement within the hitch receiver. Also purchased the Roadmaster 8” Safety Cable Extensions which were needed to allow attachment of the safety chains which were not long enough to reach the hitch mounting once the longer ball mount was installed. Also praise to Kelsey W. at etrailer.com who assisted me by answering my questions and guiding me through the sale. All equipment arrived within the time promised and all in good shape. 504198

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. 663644

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. 114431

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. 272735

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.

Ask the Experts about this Roadmaster Hitch Anti-Rattle

  • Can I Use an Anti-Rattle Clamp When Towing a Trailer?
    This can be frustrating, but I have a solution for you. If your hitch has a lip or collar around the opening, the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 is going to be perfect for you. You can use this clamp when towing a load, carrying a bike rack and also when you don't have anything attached to your ball mount. If your hitch doesn't have a lip or collar around the opening, I recommend going with the Pro Series Anti-Rattle Device for 2" Hitches # PS63091 . This will slip on to your ball...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Kuat Transfer
    For your Kuat Transfer # TS02B the anti-rattle device/hitch lock you'd want is the part # HLT. This replaces the hitch pin you have with a threaded one that holds the hitch tight to the hitch tube and also locks it there. A u-bolt style of anti-rattle device would not be your best option.

  • Anti-Rattle Device Needed for Use with a Weight Distribution System
    I really like the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch which is part # RM-061 for a 2" shank or part # RM-062 for a 2-1/2" shank. This requires that your hitch receiver have a lip on it (most do) which it uses to put pressure on the shank of your weight distribution system. I have attached a review video for you to check out.

  • Will the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 Work with a Cushioned Shank
    The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 is made to be used with 2 inch trailer hitch receivers and is used to help eliminate any rattle and/or sway that happens in the hitch receiver on your 2008 Honda Ridgeline. The great thing about this device is that you will be able to use whatever hitch pin that you want to. Since it secures the shank on the outside it will work just fine with your cushioned shank. If you are wanting to use the Quiet Hitch with a J-Pin, like part # 63201, then it can...

  • Can Anti-Rattle Device Be Used with Weight Distribution
    With the amount of spring bar force at work with your E2 weight distribution it is surprising that you are experiencing any type of movement in your hitch. The spring bars should be placing a substantial amount of tension on the shank against the walls of the receiver, thus keeping it firmly in place. That being said a # RM-061 could be used on the shank of your system and would help reduce movement.

  • Best Anti-Rattle Device For Towing Applications
    Yes, the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch part # RM-061 can be used for towing. The Quiet Hitch is designed to secure the shank against the side of the hitch receiver to minimize movement and noise. However, these collars are not always the best option as they may interfere with certain accessories or hitch receivers. The best option to secure and minimize rattle of the shank in the ball mount while towing a trailer would involve using the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # 63232...

  • Lock and Anti-Rattle for Kuat Transfer 2 and Tacoma Factory Hitch
    My best suggestion for securing your Kuat Transfer hitch bike rack # TS02G in your Tacoma's wide hitch is combination of two parts, one for anti-rattle and one for a lock. Roadmaster anti-rattle # RM-061 can clamp the rack's shank into position in the hitch to remove motion and then a separate cable lock like # e98891 or # 8122D can be used to both secure the bikes to the rack and the rack to the safety chain loops on your hitch.

    Both devices are designed to help tighten the connection between the hitch and the towing accessory. Between the two, I recommend the Road Master Quit Hitch, like # RM-061 for 2 inch hitches. The Quiet Hitch's U-bolt design might give you a stronger connection over the Pro Series Anti-Rattle one bolt design.

  • Using an Anti-Rattle Device with a Trailer Hitch Reducer for a Bike Rack
    When using hitch mounted accessories, some play/rattle is expected simply because trailer hitches and bike racks are manufactured by different companies.

It was not designed to support the tongue weight of a trailer and could be damaged if too much force is exerted on the device.

The Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System MPG908 worked in a similar way but has been discontinued. The Roadmaster seems to be the customer favorite of all the brands.
