Will Curt Aluminum Cargo Carrier Make Noise in the Hitch Because of Folding Mechanism  


Will this carrier make noise even with a hitch tightener due to the folding mechanism?


Expert Reply:

The folding mechanism on the Curt cargo carrier # C18100, or anything that folds, does allow a little play and that could lead to some noise. That is just the nature of the beast. The chance for movement and/or noise is greater if the rack is empty. I have seen some people use bungee cords like # EM06664 or #EM06656 to help control movement when the carrier is empty. Something less stretchy, such as a ratchet strap # 34413, is a better option for that.
