QH Dims

Nearly every hitch setup suffers from a bit of slip. This free play between your trailer hitch receiver and your hitch-mounted accessory is completely normal, but it's also completely preventable. By adding the Quiet Hitch to your setup, you can stabilize your hitch-mounted accessory as it sits in the receiver to eliminate rattle, sway, and all that extra play.


USE W ACCESSORIES - BAR ON TOP

Just slip the Quiet Hitch over your drawbar or other accessory. When you slide the accessory into the hitch receiver, position the U-bolt around the collar on the bottom of your hitch receiver. Then place the bar on top of the accessory shank and tighten the nuts onto the U-bolt. As you tighten the Quiet Hitch, the shank of your accessory will be pulled down towards the bottom of the receiver opening, thus securing it in place within the tube.

Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 1-1/4" Trailer Hitches - RM-061-125

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (135 Customer Reviews)

Use this hitch immobilizer to keep your drawbar or hitch-mounted accessory from rattling and shifting in your receiver. Great for bike racks, cargo carriers, and other accessories. Quick, simple bolt-on installation.

The combination of a Swagman XCT2 bike rack and a curt 1 1/4” receiver produced a bit of a side to side wobble when under way. The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch alleviated this problem. Sturdy product. I torqued the nuts as specified and have had no issues after a dozen trips. I check them as part of my pre-trip routine. Vehicle is garaged so I can’t comment on how it holds up to the weather. A nice solution to the wobble problem.

Nothing has changed after a year to make me alter my review. Solid product.

We just wanted to tell you how much we appreciated your customer service. We were called Sunday evening, the day after Christmas, and told that the clip my husband had ordered wouldn't work with the other parts.
#1 We were surprised that anyone would be working the day after Christmas on a Sunday evening.
#2 A real person was looking at the order and realized the components ordered wouldn't work together.
#3 The real person called and corrected the ordered parts.
In these days of having to work our way through phone keyboard selections and live chat with computers, it was refreshing to have an actual person catch the problem ahead of sending us an unworkable element, calling us about it, and correcting the problem. We're leaving for FL for the winter on Friday and are planning on taking our bikes. The wrong part would have made our hitch unusable, thus forcing us to leave the bikes at home. With no time to order and receive the correct part, your employee helped to make our winter more enjoyable. Thank you so much.



by:

Love it! I am not sure how you would use it, but I turned it upside down to stabilize a bike rack. Can't do that with a heavier load, but this way it helps elevate the rack so I don't scrape when backing out of the driveway. Still, I wish this product didn't rust. Only had it a year!



by:

This part installed in less than 5 minutes and it does exactly what it says. I'm using this on a 1 1/4" hitch with a bike rack attached. It's very stable now and no noise/rattling.



by:

Received the quiet hitch adapter. Thank you for the fast service



by:

The quiet hitch is fantastic. It does exactly what you claimed.
Tightened the hitch so no movement & no noise!



by:

Works perfectly as designed. A simple solution which is exactly what I wanted!



by:

Just got it installed, seems to eliminate vertical play but not lateral. Greater clamping force may help with that but I didn’t want to torque more than specified.



by:

This product fixed the swaying problem. Over time, more play developed, and the quiet hitch device was the answer. Easy to install as well. Little bike movement now when looking out the rearview mirror!



by:

Unique company with great products

I use this Roadmaster Quiet Hitch U-collar to stabilize the 1.25"-2" hitch adapter which I plug into the 1.25" hitch on my car. The adapter allows me to attach my 2" Kuat bike rack to the car. The Quiet Hitch does a great job of reducing sway. The only thing I don't like about the Quiet Hitch is that you are supposed to use a torque wrench to tighten it, yet another tool to carry along and lose. Even when I snug up the Quiet Hitch flange and lock nuts well with a 1/2" socket, they do tend to loosen after a few miles. Assuming that my Quiet Hitch loosens because I don't use a torque wrench, it would be nice if the Quiet Hitch were made with an airplane-grade retention system that doesn't require torquing to a specific value.



by:

I have used this only once. I do which the U bolt and nuts where of a higher grade of steel. I will just have to see how it wears. But I would recommend this if you have a noisy little trailer like we have.

This morning my TWO Roadmaster Quiet Hitched (2" and 1-1/4") arrived. I set about mounting my bicycle rack into my new etrailer.com 2" Draw-Tite hitch on my 2014 Subaru Outback.
I mounted the Roadmaster Quiet Hitches and was very pleased the bike rack went from having over 5" of free-play at the rack head to less than 1/2" of free-play. I no longer need to have a strap from the rack head to the roof rack.
I very good investment.
(it is a long story why I have both 2" and 1-1/4" hitches)


Comments
The products have worked out VERY well ... I am much pleased. It was a very good investment. I found I needed to invert the 2 stabilizer because of clearance issues with the rear plastic valance but I see no problems.

by:

Keeps my 1.25" hitch firm and not Shakey when loaded with cargo or bicycle rack



by:

Definitely recommend if you want to eliminate the swaying and rattling. Keeps the bike rack in place.



by:

Just what I needed. Because I use a 2" to 1 1/4" inch adapter for my bike rack the other anti-rattle devices I tried would not fit. The compact design of the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch works perfeclty and etrailer delivered it very promptly. I am very satisfied.


Comments
After one year it still works great, simple and effective

First of all, the quick service and shipping were unbeatable-- I got my order the next day with regular shipping.

The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch is as advertised and exactly what I needed-- I've never seen one in a retail store.

It has stopped the mind bending rattle of the receiver ! I highly recommend this product. Works as described and WILL stop the rattle.
Thx!

Works great, no movement or rattle.

The Roadmaster clamp is perfect for a 1-1/4" setup. We're using it to stabilized a multibike rack with a Curt hitch.

Its still working great. Used multiple times with bike rack.

by:

just used the Roadmaster Quit Hitch to take my bicycle on a 1000 mile trip it eliminated the bouncing and left and right sway that I had previously had.



by:

Had a lot of rattling and clunking from the hitch. Rattling with nothing in tow and
clunking when towing( starting & stopping ). This item has made everything nice
and tight.... as usual the service from ETRAILER was terrific. Easy to order and it
arrived quickly. Don't know why anyone would go anywhere else for their trailer-
ing needs.


Comments
still doing what it is designed for
Al F - 03/01/2018


by:

Product works quite well on my Smart For Two 1.25” bike carrier.



by:

Had a hard time finding a hitch stabilizer that would work for my situation. In my case, I am not towing anything but, rather, mounting a bike rack. Also, complicating matters was a converter from 1-1/4" to 2". The rack mounted on the 2" receiver and comes with a screw down bolt to prevent play. Unfortunately, the converter had no such feature and had significant play when inserted into the 1-1/4" receiver of the two hitch. The Roadmaster product completely solved the issue. Very happy with the results.



by:

This thing does a brilliant job of stabilizing the hitch inside the receiver to keep it from banging and rattling around. I have a Curt Euro-style integrated ball and mount so bolt-type stabilizer wouldn't work. The plating does a nice job of staving off rust and the flanged nuts help prevent the hardware from backing off.

Ask the Experts about this Roadmaster Hitch Anti-Rattle



  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for a 1-1/4 inch Hitch
    I do have an anti-rattle device that will work on a 1-1/4 inch hitch, but the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 that you referenced is designed to only work on 2 inch hitches and would not work for you. Check out the No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge # RM-061-125. This product will work on your 1-1/4 inch hitch.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Device for 1-1/4 to 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Adapter
    The Roadmaster Quiet hitch would be a great choice. You might actually need two of the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Anti-Rattle Devices. You'll need part # RM-061-125 for the connection between your adapter and the receiver hitch, and the Quiet Hitch designed for 2 inch hitches, part # RM-061 for the connection between the adapter and the hitch accessory. If the hitch accessory already has an anti-rattle device like some bike racks do, then you'd just need the # RM-061-125. Keep in mind that...

  • Recommendation To Solve Movement Of Hitch Mounted Bike Rack With Threaded Pin
    Some factory hitches have more of a tolerance that is accepted than aftermarket parts. You may have some additional sag due to this, but being able to lift the rack several inches seems excessive. The receiver should not be 1-1/2 inches, and the 1-1/4 inch shank should fit snug once you've tightened the threaded bolt. My recommendation is to use the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 1-1/4" Trailer Hitches # RM-061-125. This will immobilize your hitch and take that slack that could cause...

  • Why Would Anti-Rattle U-Bolt for 2 inch Hitch Bend When Installed on 1-1/4 inch Hitch Accessory
    If you are using a U-bolt style anti-rattle device that will fit a 2 inch hitch setup on a 1-1/4 inch setup that would be why you are seeing it bend. You really need to use the correct size so that it can be effective without bending. So for that you'd want the part # RM-061-125.

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for a 2 inch Hitch Towing Trailer
    Actually the term flat towing refers to towing a vehicle behind another vehicle with 4 wheels on the ground. If you aren't familiar with flat towing I can easily see how you drew that conclusion. I attached a help article on flat towing for you to check out if you wanted to see what it's all about. So basically the # RM-061 and # RM-061-125 would only be for use on a tow bar when a vehicle is being flat towed. For an anti-rattle device that would work for standard towing applications...

  • Recommended Anti Rattle Device for Towing R-Pod Trailer
    If you have a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver and your ball mount features a hollow shank, I highly recommend the Let's Go Aero Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232. This anti-rattle hitch pin will dramatically reduce any movement of your ball mount inside the hitch receiver. An added benefit of this particular anti-rattle pin is that it also serves as a hitch lock with its 90 degree, barrel-style lock to help deter theft. 2 keys are included.

    I went out to the warehouse and pulled Hitch Adapter # 80303 and it has a solid 1-1/4 inch shank. You will not be able to use Curt anti-rattle device # F-315.

  • Availability of an Anti-Rattle Device For a 1-1/4 Trailer Hitch on a 2005 Saturn Vue
    Hitch, ball mount, and/or accessory rattle can be annoying and it is a common ailment. Luckily, there is a cure. First, you can make sure that your trailer has the correct tongue weight. Tongue weight should be 10 to 15 percent of gross trailer weight when it is loaded and ready to tow. If tongue weight is correct, you can use an anti-rattle device. I recommend the Anti-Rattle Wedge, # RM-061-125. It is designed to fit in 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches like # 36408 on your 2005 Saturn Vue....

For this I recommend taking a look at the Roadmaster No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Clamp # RM-061-125.

    The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 1-1/4" Trailer Hitches part # RM-061-125 is a great way to stop the play in your Hitch Adapter part # HTAD. It is by far one of my favorites. Keep in mind that the adapter itself does lower the hitches capacity by 50% so you should be careful not to overload the hitch with whatever you're hauling. I linked the video I made on the Quiet Hitch for you to check out.

    Because using an adapter like the # C45770 adds another piece to the connection between the hitch receiver tube and the hitch mounted accessory (bike rack in this instance), you will tend to get some more movement than you normally would. If you were to use a Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, part # RM-061 where the adapter connects to the receiver hitch, it would prevent movement there.

    All hitch expanders, like the MaxxTow # MT70032, will have a little play in them, and especially with this size. This is due to tolerances when building hitches and adapters and needing everything to fit, well, everything. The best way to combat this play is to use an anti rattle device.
