Video Transcript for Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System Review

What's up everybody it's AJ with Today we're gonna checking out the Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock device. And what this is gonna do is just gonna go on your ball mount or the shank of a bike rag, or even a cargo carrier. And it helps stabilizes it. So you can see right here with this ball mount moves around a whole bunch. Once I install that, that movement's gonna be gone.

Let's check it out. So with just the pin in let see how much movement we have in our ball mount. And so I'm gonna show you how to fix that and then install our device. So you're gonna take the Anti-Rattle plate here the flat part's gonna sit at the bottom of the hitch and the part that's angled up will push up on the ball mount push it in to place once we tighten it down. So let's drop our U-bolt through.

Then we'll put our flat washer, lock washer, and nut at the bottom. And we're gonna do that on both of them. So we're gonna get hand tight to help hold it on there. I'll do the same thing On the other side. Come back with a ratchet.

You continue to tighten it down. Let you do it evenly. Go back and forth. You don't wanna do one. Tighten one way more than the other.

Looks pretty good right there. Now I'm gonna shake the whole vehicle back and forth. You see there's no rattling or movement whatsoever in the ball mount. Now with that installed, that was just an easy way to show you how it takes the movement out of the ball mount with it, the you bolt here pulling down and this pushing up against there at the same time it takes all that movement out of there. Malone says that you can put it upside down if you need to for clearance issues. So we did that here on my hitch, and it actually seems like it got a little bit more behind the hitch. So it seems like it might work better for me this way. So that is an option. If you have clearance issues like I did. So the safety chain loops kind of get away at the bottom. So that full plate can't go all the way back. This one seems a little more sturdy. Now I threw a cargo carrier in the hitch, just to see, this has got a lot of movement up and down so that Anti-Rattle pin's in there. It does not move side to side at all, but that up and down we're gonna try and take care of it by adding that device on there. But first, we're gonna drive around the parking lot and see how bad it looks before we install it. Now we've shown it on a two inch hitch with a two inch cargo carrier and a two inch ball mount, but it can also work with inch and a quarter. So if that's your hitch size and that's accessory you would use it for, you can use it with that too. With installed on the cargo care. It worked out really well. There's not a lot of movement up and down. It really stabilized it. You could definitely see it when we we're going down the bumps. I think it's gonna be nice for any of those accessories. Like the ball mount, , even a bike rack. You just want a little more stability. You don't like that up and down movement. It's gonna help eliminate that. And, it's really easy to install and take back off. It's not a permanent thing. You just make sure to have a ratchet to tighten it down. Well, I think that does it. Thanks for hanging out. Hope This helped..

Malone anti-rattle hitch clamp stops movement and eliminates wobble between your vehicle's receiver and ball mount. Included bracket plate, U-bolt, and nuts easily install on your receiver. Fits Class II 1-1/4" and 2" hitch receivers.


I used this to secure the hitch for my camper. This hitchlock is super simple to install and defintely eliminated any slop in the hitch/receiver connection.


It’s a simple product. Not sure it’s as valuable as the price but it does the job so I’m happy with it. After all these years of towing I’m amazed that I need to buy something because nobody can make receivers and hitches that fit properly. Quality sucks with receivers and hitches so we get to buy stabilizers. Having said that this one is fine.



Still good. Product does what it is supposed to do. Minor complaint is it is too much effort to install for short trips with my utility trailer to the dump so I put up with the banging. Still recommended.


These are a must for hitch mounted cargo carriers and bike racks. This model has a thinner ubolt than another brand I bought, but works just fine so far.


I have this installed on my class A RV. It eliminated annoying noises when towing a vehicle, or when we hauled 2 E-bikes. I wish I had purchased one years ago.


Absolutely does what it says. Just bought a 2023 F-150 and my rattling hitch was driving me crazy! This even stopped the ramming when pulling my Z-8 Nitro LOVE IT and the super nice people at Etrailers


I put the trailer hitch "tightener" on my distribution hitch that had a lot of movement, the slight 1/16 in movement left/ right /up/ down made a lot of noise and contributed to my trailer swaying. Once I installed it, in under ten minutes, I could not budge the hitch at all making for a nice tight fit, no noise, no added sway. I highly recommend this for anyone hauling heavy trailers for any distance.

Preston H.


It still works great, I never take the hitch off my truck so I do have to check the nuts before towing, but still no shifting of the trailer at all


Easy to install, no more rattle. Thank you ETrailer for a quick solution to an annoying problem.


After 1 year still works like it should. Thanks E trailer. Always good products.


This item did exactly what it stated it would and then some. I have a 3k hitch on the back of my 5th wheel and carry 2 eBikes. Not only did it stop the shaking that continually occurs during transport, and it also raised the entire bike rack at its furthest point about 2". More clearance!

Thank you etrailer!


This anti rattle didn’t stop the movement completely but it was a tremendous help. Drove to Vermont and back without the noise of my rattling bike rack.


Works as described, a simple device to stabilize receiver hitch.


The anti rattle device pictured has a 1/2" U-bolt and the plate is 5/16" thick which makes it a very stout (meaning "not flimsy") tool for making the ball mount and receiver hitch into a one piece unit eliminating that clunking and rattling normally heard when starting, stopping and going over bumps. It's another example of how something so simple can be so useful. Since installing it, I've used the trailer on several
runs and no longer have that rattling sound telescoping through the tow vehicle. I do consider it's purchase "money well spent for a quality product".


I can’t believe how much quieter it is pulling my boat now! Very easy installation, less than 5 minutes! You guys need to advertise these more, put them on your front page. I never knew they existed, until my fishing buddy ordered one 2 weeks ago.



Still the best thing since sliced bread.


It doesn’t exert any horizontal force on the lip of the hitch so less likely to cause long term damage to the hitch.


I liked the one better that was out of stock at the time. More visible


Used this with an Anti-Rattle Trailer hitch Receiver Lock on our class b camper van's hitch extender to clear the rear mounted spare tire for our bike rack. Works well to keep things from wobbling.


This keeps your hitch from rattling around and keeps it tight. A must have!


Installed both items 2 weeks ago before 8 day camping trip to North Carolina. Product performed well


I am very satisfied with this setup supplied by FYI, don't skimp on getting this little (heavy duty) part as it keeps the racket down in the back. It can actually be considered a necessity in my opinion as without it there's a whole lot of clankin' and bangin' goin on without it. Just sayin.

Thanks folks (at


just what I needed to tighten-up the tow bar


Awesome product. Thx


it's an anti-rattle thing just like every other anti-rattle thing.


A must have when using a cargo carrier.


The anti rattle hitch attachment worked ! Very happy !


Works well.

  • Can the Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System Be Used With a Weight Distribution System
    The Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System part # MPG908 will help hold the shank of the weight distribution system inside the receiver tube more securely. Therefore, you won't have as much side to side or front to back movement with the shank portion. I have attached a photo of this device used with a weight distribution system. The only disadvantage of this is that it is an extra step each time you go to install or remove the shank. If you are having issues with your weight distribution...

  • Will The Curve In The Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock Plate Dig Into The Hitch Receiver
    The curve in the Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System part # MPG908 is designed for extra stability to not allow the shank of the accessory to move up and down. It is what holds the shank of accessory tight. I have attached a photo of how this is supposed to be installed between the hitch collar and the shank of the accessory. The curved portion of the Malone Anti-rattle will not touch the hitch.

  • Is There a Torque Spec for the Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System

  • Installation of Brophy Anti-Rattle Stabilizer Clamp and U-Bolt Upside Down
    The Brophy Stabilizer Clamp and U-Bolt for 2" Hitch Receiver # RSCP holds the ball mount up against one surface of the receiver opening. The location as the top or bottom does not effect function. The u-bolt will be able to handle the weight in any of these locations as the ball mount and receiver are really doing the lifting and this adapter is securing the position to avoid rattle.

    I spoke with my contact at Rola and he stated that the Railed Cargo Carrier, # 59507, has a solid shank. You can still use an anti-rattle device with a solid shank accessory. I recommend the No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge, # MPG908. I have included a video review of this anti-rattle device below.

  • Something is Rattling After Installing Curt Class III trailer Hitch on a 2005 to 2012 Ford Escape
    You could be hearing the ball mount rattling around in the hitch or it could be the exhaust making contact with the hitch.

I have included a link to a how-to article that will help you.

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for a Hitch Adapter Used on a 1-1/4 inch Hitch
    When you use a hitch adapter like the part # HTAD you cut the capacity of the hitch in half. The bike rack would not be affected, but the hitch and frame of the vehicle where the hitch attaches would potentially be affected if you were to overload the reduced capacity. For a device that would reduce the movement of the adapter in your hitch you would want the No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge # MPG908. With this the movement would be reduced greatly. If your hitch is a Class I hitch you would...

    This Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit # AM3411, has towing capacities of 7,500 lbs when used with the 1-7/8 inch ball and 8,000 lbs when used on the 2 inch ball. We carry steel ball mounts that have higher towing capacities, and also some that have less towing capacities than this ball mount.

  • What is the Height of the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier I have 20 inch wheels
    At this time we do not have a picture of the Spare tire rack, part # c31006, in use, but I can tell you the height of the unit is 24 inches from the bottom of the receiver shank to the top of the carrier. From these measurements I believe the spare carrier will work for you. Along with the spare tire carrier you may want to consider the No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge for 2" Trailer Hitches, item # MPG908. These items will help keep the movement and noise of the the spare tire carrier to...

  • What Anti-Rattle Device Would Work On A Class III 2 inch Hidden Hitch
    If the rattling is coming from between the hitch and the drawbar you can use something as simple as a wedge type anti-rattle device like the Malone # MPG908 The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, # RM-061, should not be used when towing because it was not designed to handle the tongue weight of a trailer. I am including video links that will review both of the above mentioned anti-rattle devices.

  • Can Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2-Inch Trailer Hitches # RM-061 Be Used for Towing
    The part you referenced, Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2-Inch Trailer Hitches # RM-061, is indeed intended for use with tow bars that are pulling a rolling vehicle. It can also be used to secure an accessory item such as a bike rack, but NOT when pulling a trailer. A better option is Malone No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge # MPG908. This cost-effective anti-rattle device can be used when towing and it fits both 1-1/4-inch and 2-inch size receivers. Please refer to the linked videos for more...

  • Will Carpod Trailer hitch Mount Walled Cargo Carrier Fit a 2014 Infiniti QX60
    First, to determine if the Carpod cargo carrier, # M2205, will clear the back of your 2014 Infiniti QX60 you will need to take one important measurement. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance needed to clear the rear bumper. If that distance is less than 13 inches the carrier will clear the bumper. With any trailer hitch mounted accessory, there is going to be the potential for movement and rattle. This is because the shank of accessories has to be...

    It sounds like you have the Draw-Tite QSP Trailer Hitch Silencer and Cover for 2" Hitch Receivers # 63080 as there are other people who have referenced the door having trouble staying closed. The problem is that this is just a lower quality product so it isn't always perfect. I prefer a plug-style hitch cover, like the etrailer Rubber Hitch Cover # 22282, and then pairing that with a clamp-style anti-rattle device like what we see with the Malone # MPG908.

  • Can the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 Be Used with a Cushioned Ball Mount
    The Quiet Hitch, # RM-061, is not rated to be used while towing a trailer even with a cushioned ball mount. I recommend the simple anti-rattle device # MPG908. It wedges in on the side to stop movement. However, the use of a anti-rattle device could potentially cancel out the cushioning effect of the ball mount and it would perform like a normal ball mount.

  • Anti-Rattle Adapter Recommendation For Curt Hitch When Using Adapter
    The anti-rattle adapter I recommend is the No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge, part # MPG908. This will work for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch receivers and is designed to insert into the small gap that may exist on your receiver. You then tighten it up after it has been installed on the hitch pin as the attached photo shows. This should reduce the rattle and movement you have been having.

However, by using an anti-rattle device on this ball mount you will loose most of the cushioned function of the your ball mount.

I recommend going with the simple yet effective Boone anti-rattle device # MPG908. It is very economical, easy to use, and works well. It basically wedges itself between the hitch and ball mount, taking out the movement.
