This rotational friction stops side-to-side sway before it starts. The sway control is activated by downward pressure from the trailer tongue and upward pressure on the spring arms. The spring arms link the rotational sway control to the sway control brackets and distribute trailer tongue weight. The rigidity of the sway control brackets allow the rotational friction sway control to safely and effectively hold the trailer in line behind the tow vehicle and combat sway.
Points 3-4: Rigid Trailer Brackets
Our innovative rigid trailer brackets serve two purposes. First, they work in conjunction with the rotational friction sway controls to reduce trailer sway. Second, the forward and back friction of the hitch arm on the bracket serves as a secondary sway control system. The sway control brackets work much like two "add-on" sway bars, but with more sway stopping pressure and less hassle. The sway control brackets are the innovative link that makes the Equal-i-zer hitch 4-Point Sway Control system so effective.
Our Integrated 4 Point Sway Control provides the highest level of resistance to your trailer's attempts to sway. There is no other hitch on the market that offers as much sway control as the Equal-i-zer.
Weight Distribution Keeps You Safe
Have you ever driven by a vehicle towing a trailer and noticed the trailer tongue or back of the tow vehicle sagging? Without weight distribution, the trailer’s tongue weight added to the tow vehicle can cause it to “teeter-totter” over the rear axle which lifts the weight off the front wheels. This can cause a serious loss of steering and braking control, and can also contribute to a setup that is more likely to sway.
The Equal-i-zer hitch’s weight distributing design effectively transfers trailer tongue weight to all the axles and helps keep the front of the tow vehicle firmly on the road.
Using the Equal-i-zer hitch is easy, every time.
The Equal-i-zer® hitch is simple and easy to use. With Integrated Sway Control™ there is no need for add-on sway control devices. Hitching and unhitching are easily done from any angle. Install, adjustment, and hitch up are easy too!
