Video Transcript for Review of Blue Ox Hitch Anti-Rattle - 3 Inch Hitch Receiver Immobilizer - BLU85QR

Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at this Blue Ox Hitch Immobilizer. This is going to help keep your hitch mounted accessories, like your tow bar, drop receiver, bike rack, or other hitch mounted accessory nice and stable and secure. Helps to eliminate the rattle and sway within your hitch receiver, by stiffening and reinforcing the receiver. So this top bar here is actually going to sit on top of your receiver tube, and then this lower bar is going to be kind of angled, and it's going to be underneath your accessory, like your tow bar or drop receiver.

So as you tighten down the nuts here, it's going to lift up on that accessory and then lift it in the receiver tube. So that's going to help reduce that rattle and sway, make it nice and stiff for you, but this will fit on your three-inch by three-inch trailer hitch receivers. It is very quick and easy to get mounted in place. And you are going to get the brackets, bolts, and nuts with this, so everything that you're going to need to put it together. This is made here in the USA, so you can trust it is made to the high-quality standards that we've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the US.

So if you're looking for a quick, easy way to help eliminate some of that rattle and sway from within your hitch receiver, this is going to be a very easy way of applying a little bit of pressure to help pick up some of that slack, and make it a little bit more firm in there for you. So that's going to complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

Tighten up your connection. This hitch receiver immobilizer keeps your tow bar, drop receiver, bike rack and other hitch-mounted accessories from rattling and shifting while you're on the road.

by:

I feel it’s a good product but after about 6 months one day as I was doing a walk around inspection it caught my eye that one of the bolts was broke. Maybe I over tightened I’m not sure, I bought two new bolts grade 8 and replaced them going strong now.



by:

With Ford's better idea, lining up all of the sleeves to neck down from 31/2 to 21/4, this locked everything together very nicely. Extremely well built.



by:

Makes my bike rack very sturdy.



by:

Hitch Receiver “Immobilizer” for sure! Tight as a tick, 0 slip!



by:

Excellent service. Product does exactly what it’s supposed to do.
I subtracted one star because I wanted a black o e



by:

great device. i've tried many, most have mixed metals & all rusted, except this one. Therefore it is really easy to remove without rusty jammed bolts



by:

Looks tough. Happy it came with sae har dware.



by:

Works as it should



by:

It did not work. It did not stop the hitch slop. Both the upper and the lower cross bars bent. Definitely not worth the money.



by:

Installs rather easily. The bolt shafts were a little tight around my 2020 Ford's 3" hitch collar. But OK to deal with.
I was looking for a U-bolt style with bent plate at the bottom, however this was the only 3" bolt-on solution I found.
Bolt head is 5/8 nuts are 11/16



by:

Certainly looks very well made. Haven't used it yet but will do so soon.



by:

Nice product that does exactly what it says it does



by:

Allison was extremely helpful and as a repeat customer I would recommend to etrailer to anyone asking to source parts for towing or trailers.

Does the job.

Both items I ordered were delivered qui ckly.

  • Recommended Hitch Receiver Immobilizer For A 3 Inch Hitch
    When it comes to putting a receiver immobilizer for a 3 inch hitch on your 2022 Ford F-250 The Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer for 3 inch Hitches # BLU85QR will get the job done for you. Using this immobilizer will tighten up your connection, and keep all your mounted accessories from rattling and shifting while you're on the road, and will stiffen and reinforce the receiver. It will mount quickly and easily around your 3 inch trailer hitch receiver. The immobilizer is made in the...

  • Hitch Immobilizer that Can Fit Ford 2.5 inch Factory Hitch
    The Blue Ox Immobilizer part # BLU85QR that you referenced would work great for what you are looking for since it was designed to fit the 3 inch hitch size. It would easily fit around the collar of your hitch that is 3.5 inch.

  • What Are Flat Bars Used for in the Blue Ox Accessory Kit for Tow Bars with 2" Hitch Receivers
    The flat-looking "bars" that come with the Blue Ox Accessory Kit for Tow Bars with 2" Hitch Receivers # BLU64TR are an anti-rattle kit that clamps down on the hitch receiver and shank of your tow bar. This just helps to keep everything from moving around as much as possible. Just to get a clearer picture of what the kit is, it can be found by itself as the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer # BLU85QR, but the one in the kit is for a 2" hitch instead of a 3" hitch like the one I just referenced.

  • Best Anti-Rattle Hitch for a 2-1/2" Receiver w/ Dimensions
    Thanks for the picture! I have a solution for you but the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer for 3" Hitches item # BLU85QR won't work on your 2-1/2" receiver. I highly recommend the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches item # RM-062. This has a similar set up where you will be able to tighten it in both the upward and downward directions. It is also the more cost effective option between the two. I have linked a diagram below that shows the dimensions.

  • Hitch Immobilizer For A 2020 Ford F-350 Dually With A 3" Receiver Tube Opening
    For the 3" hitch on your 2020 Ford F-350 Dually we have the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer for 3" Hitches # BLU85QR. This hitch receiver immobilizer will keep your tow bar, drop receiver, bike rack and other hitch-mounted accessories from rattling and shifting while you're on the road.

  • Is There An Anti-Rattle Hitch Device for 3" Trailer Hitch Receivers
    Yes, we do offer an anti-rattle device for 3" trailer hitch receivers, the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer for 3" Hitches part # BLU85QR for the wraparound style or the Gen-Y Iron Grip Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin for 3" Hitch Receivers part # GY49FR for the pin style. These are both great options that will help secure your accessories inside the receiver reducing rattle, I recommend the Gen-Y Iron Grip Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin since it doubles as a lock. I did a review video on this if you would...

  • Is There a 3" to 2" Reducer Available for a 2021 Ford F-350?
    We definitely have a couple options for you. I do not suggest using multiple reducers with weight distribution, so the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302 will adapt your 3 inch receiver to a 2 inch without the need of one in between them. I do suggest using an anti rattle device when using a reducer with a weight distribution system, however, and the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer # BLU85QR is designed to fit 3 inch hitches and will keep everything nice and secure...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Anti-Rattle Device for a 3" Receiver
    The XL Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # SHP2040-XL has an inside pin length of 3-7/8". While it was designed to be used with 2-1/2" receivers you can also use it with 3" receivers that meet the 3-7/8" overall width requirements. The hitch must have a hollow shank for the anti-rattle device. Otherwise we have the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer for 3" Hitches # BLU85QR that can be used with a solid shank hitch.

  • Do You Have a Hitch Reducer Compatible With a 3" Receiver on a Ford F-350?
    We do have our Trailer Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeves # e33YR which includes a 3" to 2-1/2" reducer and 2-1/2" to 2" reducer. These can be used individually or together if you need to go from a 3" to 2" receiver. We do not have any that are both magnetic like our 2-1/2" to 2" Reducer # e28JR you found. I do recommend using a Anti-Rattle # BLU85QR when using the reducers as there is going to be additional play in the hitch.

  • Recommended Hitch Extension For A 3 Hitch On A 2021 Ford F-250
    The 3" hitches Ford is using are throwing everyone for a bit of a loop. With that being said, I do have a couple options for you to check out. First will be the TorkLift Cannon Hitch Extension - 3" Ford Super Duty Factory Hitch # TLE1636. This will measure 32 inches long, so it is longer than you need, but it is also rated up to 3,600 pounds towing and 360 pounds of tongue weight. This jumps up to 7,200 pounds towing and 720 pounds of tongue weight when a weight distribution system is...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Wrangler with a Towable Bumper
    We have the parts you need to flat tow your 2014 Jeep Wrangler, but I do recommend checking to make sure your bumper is rated for flat towing - we've seen quite a few Jeep bumpers that have the tabs at the front but unless the company has rated that bumper for flat towing you'll need to get a base plate kit instead. Should your bumper be rated for flat towing here are the parts I recommend: - Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-522 - Bumper Adapter # RM-035 (for 3/4" D-Ring mounts) OR #...
