Although I have only used it for a very short trip to help stabalize a cargo carrier, it worked very well. It fits each hitch differently. It fits one of my hitches much better than the other. Tightning all the set screws and lock nuts is kind of a pain, but nessesary for it to work as designed. Thats the biggest downfall of this product, overall a good product, better than others I have seen.

I wish I had thought of this. Mounted easily with just minor fitting and the replacement of a few of the set screws mainly due to irregularities in the hitch where it mounted. I tend to be a perfectionist so it took me a bit longer to install; but it could be on and set in a matter of minutes. Product works well on what ever you use your hitch for from trailers to racks, steps, load platforms and even empty hitches; stops all rattles and sway. It's a keeper!

I absolutely like the design and concept of the anti sway bracket. It's an idea so simple that you wonder why no one had thought of it before -- sort of like ViseGrip pliers. In the past my concern had been with the noise cause by a loose fitting receiver assembly, especially on bumpy roads. I used another well known product, duct tape, to take up enough of the vertical and lateral space around the hitch ball assembly to sufficiently eliminate most of the noise. Now, my purpose is to add additional stability to a cargo platform (approx 23" x 48") that will carry my electric wheelchair. The platform is rated for 500 pounds and the chair only weighs 74, so weight is not an issue. What could be an issue would be the vibration caused by a loose fitting hitch assembly. As I was installing the anti sway bracket, I was amazed at the simple utility, and the solid feel. I intend to leave it on the cargo carrier all the time. Other times, I'm just pulling a utility trailer or a boat trailer. I could see where it would be beneficial in those applicatons also, but the wheel chair cargo carrier my most pressing concern. It occurred to me, also, that the attachment of the receiver and the hitch assembly could (with a lightly loaded trailer, cargo carrier, etc.) could possibly be of assistance if the pin holding the hitch assembly to the receiver ever vibrated loose. I intend to try it out on my newly finished cargo carrier this weekend and I'll get back to you next week with the field trial results. Art
