Equal-i-zer Accessories and Parts - EQ95-01-5150

  • Weight Distribution Hitch
  • Sway Control Parts
  • Brackets
  • Equal-i-zer

Minimize noise and reduce wear and tear on your Equal-i-zer sway-control brackets and spring bars with these unique, plastic sleeves. Designed for use with Equal-i-zer weight-distribution systems rated for 6,000 lbs to 14,000 lbs GTW.


Features:

  • Jackets slip onto the L-brackets of your Equal-i-zer weight-distribution system to limit steel-on-steel contact
    • Minimizes wear on sway-control brackets and spring bars
    • Creates a quieter towing system
  • Nylon construction is sturdy and durable
  • Application: 2" wide sway-control L-brackets of Equal-i-zer weight-distribution systems rated for 6,000 lbs - 14,000 lbs GTW
  • 2 Sway bracket jackets included
  • Made in the USA


Note: Using the sway bracket jackets on your sway-control brackets may slightly diminish the effectiveness of your Equal-i-zer system's integrated sway control. Although minimizing the steel-on-steel contact eliminates some of the noise that occurs when towing with the Equal-i-zer, it also limits the friction created when sway occurs and, therefore, the effectiveness of the integrated sway control.

by:

The Sway Bracket Jackets work perfectly and exactly as described. They were a breeze to install and fit perfectly. They eliminated any noise previously encountered while towing our travel trailer. I would highly recommend these sway jackets and etrailer.com.




by:

I bought these cause the noise from my equalizer hitch was waking up the dead. I put these on and the noise was gone while towing my trailer.
One thing I did notice was that getting passed by big trucks now caused swaying that never happened before the pads were installed.
I sold my 26" trailer that these were installed on and up graded to a new Jayco 36' trailer. Of course since this corona virus nonsense I haven't used the new trailer I bought in October and am going to use it this week. I'm going to not use them on the way out and install them on the way back to see if I get any sway.


Comments
I believe Im right about the swaying. The swaying Im getting is because of the reduced friction on the bars. They stop the noise but are actually defeating the original purpose of the sway bars. Im also a dummy cause the majority of the noise I was experiencing was coming from the brackets attached to the hitch. I wasnt lubing them enough.

by:

No tool install and they quite the sway bars.




by:

They work great! Glad to have discovered them. Sure helped with squeaking and popping!




by:

Spare Parts for my Equal-i-zer hitch. E Trailers, as always, perfect. Easy to find, order, and quick delivery. Ready, set, go to install on a new trailer.




by:

These were replacements for ones on my camper that my 4 month old Lab puppy decided were great chew toys! As usual with Etrailer the the service was excellent.




by:

I was unable to use this part as I have the newer Equalizer brackets retainers that have a rotating spring clip which will not clear these jackets. This product can only be used with the older style of brackets retainers that use the pin and retaining pin underneath the L bracket. I returned the part for a refund.


Comments
Weve contacted Equal-i-zer about these jackets. There was a short period when the L pins and jackets were not compatible. It has since been resolved and the jackets and pins have been updated and should now be compatible.
-- Etrailer Expert Patrick B - 01/27/2014


by:

Actually got a jump on next season by buying these. Looks like a quality product as all Equal-i-zer products seem to be and am hoping these jackets will quiet popping of hitch...by just looking at these items,I believe they will do the job!




by:

Went on two RV trips out West pulling a 27 ft. trailer, one with & one without the weight distribution hitch. There was no comparison. Without it, the strong winds out West on the plains moved us about and made steering difficult. With it, a smooth no problem experience as if there wasn't a trailer behind the truck. The tool to hook up the stabilizer bars makes it so easy. The pictured wear pads make a big difference so there's no wear between the bars and brackets extending their life. An excellent product and I would recommend it to anyone.




by:

Quick Delivery, excellent service as us ual




by:

I think they are a little pricey for what they are. But they do work great! Got rid of all the snapping and popping from the hitch. Equal-i-zer should include them with the hitch.




by:

These pads, even with a little grease added, did not stop the horrible screeching from my Equalizer. However, adding grease to the pivot points back on the main hitch did make a huge difference. I'll still use these, though - seems silly to have metal-on-metal at the tips of the bars. (Other brands use similar friction pads as a standard part of the system.) By the way, adding the grease as described above did not noticeably reduce the anti-sway feature of the hitch, though to be fair, I use it for a car hauler rather than a large travel trailer, so sway was never a big issue anyway.




by:

Keeps the sway bars quiet. If adding to existing setup, you might want to re-adjust your hitch. We grease the ball and the hitch swing-arm pivot points before every trip and after heavy rains. We don't notice a change in sway control, but our trailer only ever swayed in a crosswind. We still get a little push when being passed by a big rig, but that is hardly the fault of the plastic caps.




by:

Nice devices to keep the system running smoothly.




by:

Great product. Easy to install. They have stopped the "grinding" noise that comes when using the sway bars. Would highly recomend them to anyone.


Comments
Excellent!!!They are still working and keep the noise down!! HIGHLY recommend anyone who has an Equalizer hitch add these to their configuration!!!
Beverly - 06/29/2021


by:

This will *reduce* but not *eliminate* the squeaking sound from the load distribution bars. It had no noticeable impact on sway control. Highly recommended.


Comments
Still great, no noticeable wear, works as advertised.
Chris M - 04/30/2021


by:

I love love love these sway bracket jackets. They completely stopped the pops and groans my Equalizer was making before adding them.

One special note, though... I suggest NOT adding lubricant on top of these. I added a light layer of the Equalizer lubricant on top and noticed that it reduced the friction on the spring bars maybe just a little too much and that allowed just a little bit of occasional sway movement that I hadn't felt before adding the lube.

These are essential in my view and should be standard issue with every new Equalizer purchase.




by:

These nylon jackets seem to minimize wear to the equalizer hitch weight distribution bars and brackets while having no noticeable adverse effects on sway control. I would definitely buy these again.




by:

Easy to install-no tools and only seconds of time needed. Appearance wise it blends in with the metal brackets very well. We just tried these on a 280 mile round trip and they quieted the horrible screeching our Equalizer used to make on turns and uneven terrain down significantly. Key word..."significantly" not eliminated. You still will get some noise but it's no where near as loud or long lasting as it is with the metal on metal. It's much more tolerable with this add on jacket. It's worth the price to me for the value it adds.




by:

Just what I needed




by:

Sold the trailer before I ever got to use them :(




by:

I mistakenly bought this for a Husky Center Line hitch which is similar to Equalizer but Husky bracket is wider than 2" bracket Equalizer uses which I did not realize. I saw a review that stated it would work-WRONG. The part looks like good quality though, shame it won't work.




by:

Will install them when I get the hitch installed.




by:

These seemed rather expensive for plastic parts but our trailer hitch was so loud that it was worth a shot. If I’m being very generous the noise seemed maybe a little quieter, maybe, the first time or two we used them. But over time I’m not confident they make any significant difference. I keep them on because I like reducing a little of the friction but I wouldn’t buy a replacement if I lost them.




by:

I have been using a little grease on the L bracket to eliminate squealing from the load bars moving back and forth during travel . This year I decided to install these bracket jackets when I happened across them while buying some other spares. Installation couldn't be easier and there were no issues. They do add a small amount of height to where the bars rest so it will slightly increase the load distribution of your hitch setup. Also, I may still put a small dab of grease on the vertical leg of the L bracket next time because there was some noise. So far, so good after using them once.


Comments
Adding grease or the jackets will inhibit the sway prevention performance of the system to a degree, since the system depends on metal-on-metal friction to prevent trailer sway.

  • My Trailer Still Causes My Truck to Sag in The Rear When Connected With Weight Distribution Hitch
    With the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET installed on your 2020 Ford F-250 you will not need anything else to remove the sag from the trailer. The head of the Equal-i-zer hitch needs to be adjusted to redistribute more weight on the front of your truck to eliminate the rear sag. I have included a video that will show how the hitch will redistribute the weight when properly installed as well as a link to the instructions that will show you how to adjust the hitch head...

    If you are only needing the suspension enhancement for pulling a travel trailer with your 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 I wouldn't recommend any. You will be much better off going with a weight distribution hitch with sway control. The weight distribution hitch will better distribute the weight across your truck giving you a level ride. It is also adjustable so it can be fine tuned for your truck and trailer, and can be moved to different trucks and trailers if you decide to make a change....

    The Equalizer # EQ95-01-5150 sway bracket jackets are compatible with Equal-i-zer weight distribution systems with tongue weight capacities from 600-1400 lbs. Unfortunately, they don't offer a jacket system for 1600 lb systems like your # EQ64FR. Typically, folks are troubled by the noise the spring bars make against the L brackets, especially when they're pulling into a campground later on in the evening. Your best bet in that situation is to simply remove the spring bars just before...

  • Available Accessories to Reduce Noise from Weight Distribution Systems Like the Curt TruTrack
    Some odd sounds and noises from a weight distribution system are pretty much par for the course. Any device like these that uses friction, such as to accomplish a degree of trailer sway control, is going to make noise. With the Equal-I-zer systems use of their jackets # EQ95-01-5150 can reduce this to a degree but not eliminate it. Plus anything that reduces friction and noise in such a device will also inevitably reduce its effectiveness. Friction is how they do their job. Curt does...

    The # EQ95-01-5150 Sway Bracket Jackets for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems are only compatible with Equal-i-zer systems. It should not be used with your Curt WDH. The best way to reduce noise and wear and tear is to use lubricant like the # EQ91-00-4250 Equal-i-zer High-Performance Lubricant. This is applied to the hitch ball, head assembly or spring-bar sockets as needed. I have attached a video review for your reference.

    The weight and sway distribution hitch will not only act as a leveling device which is not a huge concern with the 2020 Ram Rebel pulling the 2017 Jayco Jay Flight 145RB, but will also reduce the sway the trailer will experience. Due to the light weight and large surface area of your trailer this is extremely important to have sway control. Sway occurs mostly on highways due to wind and large trucks creating turbulence.
