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.

Works perfectly on my Ford F350 with the 3" receiver and the two reducers (2-1/2" & 2") it's wide enough to go around the large receiver and the bar clamps don on the hitch firmly. Very happy with this product. 712021

Set it up per the instructions and torque to specs, arrived at campsite and unhitched the trailer, and it was loose. Locknuts still tight, but the unit flopped around. Went ahead and tighten the bolts again, ignoring the torque spec, when I got home and unhitched it was loose again. Not impressed by this product, and would not ever buy again. 550332


Comments
This Road Master Quiet Hitch does require a collar or ring on your hitch opening to have a surface to attach to. If you do not have a hitch receiver with a collar the Roadmaster quiet hitch will not stay attached.

Great product. I have 2 suggestions for improvement: 1. All trailer hitches I've seen are black - both the receiver and the hitch. Please make this product black. The first thing I did with mine was had it powder coated black because painting it will just scratch off. 2. Shorten the length of the bolts just a little, There is over 1" of excess bolt on each side. You could save money in materials by shortening the bolts. 467700

I love the product. The only recommendation that I have is that I would offer it in a Black Powder Coat Finish - that’s what I did to mine.

Used it 3 times before one of the nuts stripped. It may have been user error...?the material itself is solid but i didn't really find it useful. My hitch didn't rattle enough and putting it on wasn't worth the time. With that said, if you are having the need for this item, it will do the job. 3 stars because it didn't work for me. 769859

This Anti-Rattle clamp eliminates any hitch rattle. Rattle because of the space between the hitch and the receiver which moves, ever so slightly. This clamp helps eliminate any movement.

    Yes, if you are not able to install the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch part # RM-062 and part # RM-061 with the lock bar facing up, you may flip it over and install it so the lock bar is on the bottom of the receiver. I have attached a photo of the U-bolt installed upside down.

    We've had customers have the U-bolt of the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # RM-062 facing up and down and it has worked just fine. I would probably use it in the configuration you referenced. That way the # RM-062 isn't supporting the tongue weight of the setup.

    The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, # RM-062, does fit 2-1/2 inch receivers like the one on your 2009 Chevy Silverado 2500 but it is made for flat towing only (towing a vehicle behind a motor home) and is not rated for towing.

  • Anti-Rattle When Using a Hitch Reducer on a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver

So you'd use 23 ft./lbs. According to the directions, which are the same for both parts, "Torque both of the first nuts to 23 ft./lbs. Using a wrench, hold each of the first nuts and tighten the jam nuts to 23 ft./lbs."

I have included a link to a video review for you to view. A 2 inch receiver is made with 1/4 walls and the powder coat adds a little bit to. The inside height of the 2 inch Quiet Hitch is 2-1/2 inches which is just perfect for the 2 inch hitches. Going larger and you may not be able to get it tight enough.

Take a look at the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp, part # 325-GH-063.
