Great addition for peaceful towing

We have used a Softride Quietride 2" drop for towing for several years. They eliminate the rattles and banging that will drive you nuts after an 8-10 hour trip. Our new trailer requires a higher mount. The 6" drop/4.5" rise solid aluminum Quietride ball mount fit the bill. The ball we added weighs as much as the mount. It made for a peaceful towing experience. It's a great addition for towing.

Shipping was very fast and the 6" lowered mount arrived in perfect shape. I was disappointed to see it was made in China, but the polished finish was great and it appears very well made. It was easy to mount with the supplied locking pin and I installed a 2" ball to complete the installation. I have used it several times to pull a trailer and no problems, no clunking noises- it really does make a difference! It might be pricey but well worth it, I would recommend it to everyone!

Great Hitch

These Quietride aluminum ball mounts are great. They look nice too, even though the package does say that it's made in China. It sure seems like a lot of weight for a soft metal like aluminum, but they are rated for 10k lbs, so I guess I'll trust em. Plus they won't rust. I sold my expensive DiversaTech adjustable height ball mount and bought two of these Quietride ball mounts. A 4" and a 6" drop. The adjustable height mounts just rattle too much and I don't trust them. I'd rather have less pieces that can fail. I use this mount with a stainless steel Convert-a-ball and it works great. I just swap out the ball for whatever size I need. I have one one each of my 4" and 6" drop mounts. This should cover all my needs and it solid and won't rust. The locking cross pin is nice too. I think its stainless steel.

No more clunk, clunk!

Finally, a smoother, quieter towing experience with my boat and this hitch. Made a huge difference in reducing the clunking movement with every stop and start. Now there is just the soft bump of the trailer brake, but that is nothing compared to what it was with a traditional hitch. Also, the solid aluminum looks great, although the almost $100 price was steep even for something this good. After all it is just a hitch, ya know?

Lock system

Very nice hitch. The lock system is a little tricky. I installed mine and thought is was locked and secured. It fell off and I lost it in two days. Replacement lock was expensive.
