Roadmaster Hitch Anti-Rattle - RM-062

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.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Hitch Anti-Rattle - Standard Anti-Rattle - RM-062 Review

Kevin: Today we're going to be taking a look at part number RM-062. This is the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2 1/2 inch trailer hitches. This unit is going to keep your hitched on accessories stable and secure. It's going to help eliminate rattle and sway within the hitch receiver. It's going work great for hitch adapters and tow bars. This is designed for flat towing only.

This not designed to handle any ton weight. Really simple operation and installation. It simply just bolts on quickly and easily. This is designed to fit most 2 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch receivers. To go over a few measurements real quick, outside to outside, that's going to give us a measurement of 5 1/8th of an inch. Inside to inside is going to give us a measurement of 4 3/16ths of an inch.

With these nuts backed off as far as possible, with that bar set all the way back, from this point here to this point here, it's going to give us a measurement of 3 9/16ths of an inch. Again, this is designed for flat towing only. If you have towing set-up that includes a drop receiver, a Hi-Lo adapter, you'll want to use two of these units to make your system as secure and rattle free as possible. You can use one quiet hitch at the connection point between the adapter and your hitch. Then, use the other where your tow bar slides into your adapter. Really simple operation. All you have to do is take the nuts off.

This one's on there pretty good. Once you get all of those removed, you're going to place the portion right here, the U-bolt, this is going to behind the collar of your hitch. Your shank or whatever is mounted inside your hitch is going to go through this point here. This bar is going to come down on top of that shank, so it is going to sit at an angle. Now, you can install this either way, with the threads pointed up or the threads pointed down, depending on your vehicle and how much room it allows you.

Once you have that in place, as you tighten these down it's going to push this against the shank of your hitch mounted item. Which is either going to be able to push it down against the bottom of the inside of your receiver tube, or it's going to push it up against the inside edge of your receiver tube. That's how it's going to eliminate the rattle or wobble that we experience inside of our hitch. Now, in the instructions, it does give torque ratings for each of these nuts so you can get those tightened down to the torque rating as indicated in the specifications listed by the manufacturer. That's going to do it for today's review of part number RM-062. This is the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2 1/2 inch trailer hitches. .

This is a really great product, I only wish the u-bolt was ridiculously thicker. For the majority of applications, this product will work perfectly. 4 stars for the product and 5 for etrailers customer service. etrailer was great about putting a hold on my order and notifying me because I bought a 2 1/2” anti-rattle clamp and a 2” receiver mount. I called them and told them the items were not going to be used together and my order was at my front door in less than a week. 524394


Comments

I have mixed emotions about this item. I have a 3/4 ton truck with a 2-1/2 inch receiver and an adapter to change it to a 2 inch receiver. I generally carry a duel dirt bike carrier with it and there is a lot of slop. The anti rattle device didn’t seem to work very well with this application. There was just too much weight on the hitch for left to right wobble and if the truck bounced a little, so would the bike carrier with bikes on it. The u-shaped part of the bracket bent a little as I anticipated, even though it is thick, but the aluminum cross bar was very strong. I welded some metal shims to the dirt bike carrier and the 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch adapter to eliminate most of the slop and it seems to work much better. It works very well with regular light duty towing. Overall the product is great for lighter duty applications but not heavy duty dirt bike carriers.

I used a hitch extension, so I needed two RM-062. Easy to install. Completely seizes the extension and the hitch. No rattle at all. Secondary lock nut works well. Shipped on time. Priced right. etrailer great to deal with. Downside, the recommended torque setting is too much. 477891


Comments

I bough5 several for multiple vehicles. I tightened the first to recommenced torque setting, which I believe is too tight. As predicted when I took that one off the threads were ruined. The others were OK. Use a good lube when tightening the S.S. parts. The produce works well. ETrailer did a great job.

Just received and installed the quiet hitch. Very solid, sturdy material. Very impressed with the quality and stoutness of this bolt system. Hasn't seen road vibration/use yet and a little concerned it might vibrate loose (doubt this will happen after reviewing other customer comments), but for now I'm impressed. 466778

The product is the Roadmaster quiet hitch. I'm already putting it to use on our motorhome car towing apparatus and so far it appears to work well. Kudos to etrailer.com for an excellent shipment tracking page, easily accessible by the web page link in the shipping confirmation e-mail that was sent to me. 296574

This product took all the rattle out of our hitch. The trailer we pull does not have much hitch weight so every bump in the road was felt. I recommend this product as it solved the problem. 483452



- RM-062
by:

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


Comments

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.

This reciever clamp seems to be well made and heavy duty. It will lock the ball mount and the Rock Tamer stone guards into place and keep them from wiggling in the reciever mount. I wish that the nuts would be nylon lock nuts though, then it wouldn't need two nuts to tighten. I installed it and am now just waiting to try it out. This is just another product from Etrailer that I bought and am happy with. I will keep shopping for more stuff. 269607

The hitch rattle device made by Roadmaster was not up to the job for my travel trailer. The tongue weight of the trailer was too much for it. In short time the steel u-bolt yielded and would not stay in place after. 589440



- RM-062
by:

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.

Large for 2015 SD Ford 2.5" hitch but still steadies bike rack and hitch mounted mud flaps well. A bit of work/time tightening/loosening to take on/off. You could probably make one cheaper. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to eliminate rocking hitch play/noise. 211124

What a great idea! This really works. Easy to install. No more rattling or shaking of the hitch. This device basically welds the hitch to the frame with little effort. I highly recommend this product. Every person who has seen this on my truck wants one for his. Worth the money. 636388

  • I checked with Roadmaster and the torque specs for the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # RM-062 are the same as the Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches # RM-061 you referenced: 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."

  • Locking Diversi-Tech Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2012 Ford Super Duty
  • The Self-Locking, Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount # DTALBM6425 that you referenced is designed for 2-1/2 inch hitch openings, and while it does appear to be a 2 inch ball mount with a sleeve on it, it will work just fine on a 2-1/2 inch hitch. The portion that looks like a sleeve is not removable and does not offer any movement so it really should not be an issue. This ball mount has a locking mechanism that would prevent theft. I have personally handled this ball mount several times...

  • Anti-Rattle Device for 2-1/2-Inch Hitch Suitable for Use with Reducer Sleeve
  • The threaded anti-rattle hitch bolt included with the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149 will not be long enough to work properly in a 2-1/2-inch hitch with a reducer sleeve like # 58102. You certainly can still use another type of anti-rattle device, such as the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2-1/2-Inch Trailer Hitches # RM-062. You will still use the pin supplied by Yakima.

  • Can Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Be Used with a Tow Dolly
  • Yes, the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-062 is perfectly safe to use when using a tow dolly like you are planning. This is for a 2-1/2 inch hitch though which most likely you'd have a 2 inch hitch on your Suburban and would instead need the # RM-061.
