Roadmaster Hitch Anti-Rattle - RM-061

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.

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.


If you are going to use the Quiet Hitch with a weight distribution system, the setup will be opposite. Position the U-bolt around the top of the hitch receiver and place the bar on the bottom of the weight distribution shank. As you tighten the nuts on the Quiet Hitch, the shank will be pulled up towards the top of the receiver to help balance the downward force that is placed on the hitch from the weight distribution system.


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.

So far this hitch quieter works as advertised. Easy way to keep the tow bar from rattling. 559995

Didn't really fit my SUV. Etrailer did well, but I had to go to elsewhere to find the right product. 567181

It works great. The hitch used to bang and clunk all the time, shaking the vehicle. Now it is quiet, and pleasant, to tow the trailer. 570747

I bought this little device to tame my clunking hitch, and I was amazed at how simple it was to install (1 minute once you break out the ratchet!). Better yet, it works great. Awesome and easy, can't beat that. 151043


Comments

I still use it and really like it. It is the best hitch stabilizing device I have ever seen, and at a great price.

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

After a year, my hitch parts are still tight and doing the job of eliminating all wobbles.

The product does what it was intended for. I have a 8 inch hitch extension,so, I bought two of them. Sure makes things solid. I would love to see this item in stainless steel. 182776


Comments

I have since removed the 8 inch hitch extension,so now I only use one, works great, I have mine in the pressing down position, the nuts are facing up, much better than facing down.

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

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

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

While I dont use it much, I think it is great, and miss it when I dont take the time to put it on.

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 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

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 received the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch 2 inch. I had a bad hitch rattle and a clunking noise when I took off from a red light pulling my travel trailer. The u clamp was received with fast service and had great help from Renee in getting the right thing I needed to stop my problem. A good product and stopped all of my problems. Very satisfied. 196427

After a year, Im still very happy with this product. My trailer used to drive me nuts banging around in the receiver. Now its as if the hitch and receiver are all one piece. This simple thing really does the trick.

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


Comments

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.

I've used several other similar products. This is the best. USA made, too. I would prefer not to use anything made by Chinese child labor. ETRAILER always ships fast and has a great website that makes product comparison easy. I've been a fan of this company for a while now and it's a no-brainer to go to ETRAILER first. 66457

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

Well built, easy to install, great for use on most ball mounts. For my application the ball mount height imposed high tension loads during braking and stretched the "U" bolt loosening it up. 563134

The product worked for the first 500 miles. The bolts stripped the threads on the u-shaped part and it was no longer effective. I would suggest better or heavier quality metal. I solved the problem by having a jam nut installed on the receiver. It works perfectly with little effort. 528644

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.

Thank you for the follow-up. For the most part, the product does what it claimed to do. It does a great job at stabilizing the tow hitch accessory. However, it needs to be stronger. It bends and after it is tightened down, it is not always easy to take back off because of that.

This product serves it's purpose and is a simple design. I use it when towing my travel trailer with a WD hitch. So as per instructed by the employee's notes on the product page, I installed it, hoop up, nuts down. The normal installation without WD hitch is opposite that. I just returned from a trip and it worked great. I didn't hear or feel any shifting in the hitch during the trip as I have in the past. The one thing I would recommend it to either use some lock-tite or keep a close eye on the nuts if you are using it as I am with a WD hitch. One of my keeper nuts came loose and dropped down a few threads. No issue since I caught it, but something to keep in mind. 321653

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

I purchased the Quiet Hitch a year ago. I has been what I hoped it would be. I completely satisfied with this product. What I didn't expect is that it is also an anti-theft devise. It prevents causal theft by requiring someone to have a wrench to remove a hitch. And the rattles and bangs of pulling a trailer are gone. 561302



- RM-061
by:

Installation was pretty easy. The real test will come when I hook up a trailer to it. I'm sure it is a good investment. Towed a trailer once with my '87 Suburban without the quiet hitch. It was a scary experience. Every time I used my brakes I felt like a car was rear-ending me. I recommend this product. 226428

Good product. I have a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee with factory installed hitch. I was unable to install the quiet hitch per the instructions due to the safety chain loops. I installed the quiet hitch in the opposite direction and it worked as expected. I was only pulling a small trailer so I wasn't worried about the load being transferred to the quiet hitch. 570834

Etrailer gets 5 star for fast shipping. It only took about a week or so to get it half way across the country. The product itself only gets 3 stars. It seems heavy duty, but it only took out about half the wobble. 545705

I haven't towed anything yet after installing this product, however I've tried to get the hitch to wiggle using both hands and plenty of body English. The hitch is as tight as if welded. It's nice to purchase a product that works as well as or better than advertised! 376882

I have three Quiet hitches. One on my 2016 Dodge Ram, and i have two on my 2007 that has a camper that is extended two feet beyond the receiver and i pull a 32' boat i could hear the extensions rattling with every bump. So i purchased two for my 2007 and ended all of the rattling completely. It worked so well on 2007. I purchased one for my 2016. This is a simple and great fix for a rattling receiver. 308720

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Use with Weigh Safe Ball Mount

  • Comparison Between the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch and the Pro Series Anti-Rattle Device
  • 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.

  • Can the Roadmaster 10 Drop/Rise Adapter be Used for a Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack
  • You could potentially use the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-10 for a cargo carrier and bike rack but you will be reducing the space on your carrier (like you said) and you are limited to 400 lbs of tongue weight. This includes the weights of your carrier, bike rack, plus the cargo/bikes that you will be carrying. Since 10" is quite a bit of drop I am guessing that your tow vehicle is a bit taller like a lifted pickup. If this is the case then you may be interested in...

For your anti-rattle, I recommend the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches # RM-061 which will give you the anti-rattle and then # BWTS51234 for a locking hitch pin.

  • Receiver Rise Adapter for Thule T2 Pro XT Bike Rack on Curt # 13390 Hitch
  • With your Curt # 13390 hitch, you can add an adapter like # D-192 (45792) but it will reduce the trailer hitch tongue weight capacity by 50%. This will not restrict your rack as the hitch is already rated for 600 lbs giving you a 300 lb capacity remaining. The T2 Pro 4 bike rack # TH9034XT-9036XT has a total weight capacity of 160 lbs and weighs 113 lbs, so you will still be under the hitch weight limit. This adapter is a great choice as it will raise your bike rack a little over...

  • 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....

  • Stopping Slop And Jerking When Towing With Extended Ball Mount
  • In order to get a sung fit on the Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3509, is to use the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 with this product. This unit is 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. In regards to the size of ball mount, it may be better to select a product with less drop. Because once the weight of the trailer is on the hitch,...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Use with Curt Dual Hitch Adapter # D-192
  • The shank of the Curt Dual 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # D-192 is solid so while we do have anti-rattle devices that would work with it we don't have any that are threaded. You'd need to use a U-bolt style device like the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch part # RM-061 which would fit around the shank and hitch tube. I attached a picture that shows this as well.

  • Is Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Device OK to use With B&W Ball Mount?
  • So long as you have a ring or collar like in the accompanying photo, you will be fine using an anti-rattle device such as the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061.

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Hitch of 2018 Toyota 4Runner SR5
  • The Draw Tite anti-rattle device part # 63080 is only tested on Draw Tite hitches so it would not work on your 2018 Toyota 4Runner SR5. For a similar anti-rattle device the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch part # RM-061 would do a similar job and fit well on your factory hitch. I attached a review video for this hitch for more info for you to check out as well.

  • 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-013. 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.

  • Recommended Locking Hitch Pin and Anti-Rattle for Solid Shank Hitch Extension
  • The Blue Ox Hitch Extender for Tow Bars - 2" Hitches - 12" Extension # BX88264 has a solid shank at the trailer hitch receiver end that is not threaded, so you would need to use a hitch pin lock like # 7683 on that end and then for an anti-rattle you will need an external device like # BX88224 for the best stabilization or # RM-061 for a more economical option. The opposite end with the receiver opening can use the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device # THSTL2 if you are...

  • What Material is The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Made Of?
  • The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches # RM-061 is made of steel and has a zinc plating for corrosion resistance. It is designed to work with ball mounts, tow bars, and hitch mounted accessories as an anti-rattle 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.

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Use with Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount
  • To remove the movement in the hitch between the Weigh Safe # WS6-2 and the hitch opening you would need to use a wedge style anti-rattle like the part # RM-061. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Comparing the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Ant-Rattle Devices for 2 Inch and 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitches
  • The difference between the Quiet Hitch anti-rattle devices # RM-062 and # RM-061 is what they are made to fit. First, # RM-061 is designed for 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. And # RM-062 is designed for 2-1/2 inch receivers. There are some 2 inch receivers that are larger than standard and might require the # RM-062. The outside of a 2 inch receiver should be 2-1/2 inches (not counting the very end which would be larger). A 2-1/2 inch receiver would be 3 inches on the outside. Since...

  • 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.

  • 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...
