Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy Stabilizer Bracket for two inch receivers, part number RHSB. This stabilizer bracket installs under a two inch hitch receiver to stabilize your hitch mounted accessories. It's perfect for cargo carriers, bike racks, steps, or any other non-towing accessories. It's made out of a solid steel construction with a black powder coat finish so it's going to resist rust and corrosion.Our cargo carrier's loaded up with about 200 pounds of weight. Let's go ahead and take it out on our test course. As we go through the inaudible 00:00:30 you can see the side to side action such as going around corners or evasive maneuvering.

As you can see over our solid speed bumps this is showing an up and down action such as pulling in and out of a driveway or out of a parking lot. And then finally our alternating speed bumps.This is going to show a twisting action such as going over potholes or uneven pavement. It's a very easy installation. You'll just need to make sure it doesn't tighten down into any weld points. We'll go ahead and show you how to install it.

We're going to be using a cargo carrier for our stabilizer bracket today. Now, let's go ahead and put it on our shank. We want to make sure that our set screws are facing down and to the side. Now I'm going to line up my pinholes.Put my inaudible 00:01:32 clip in place. Then I'm going to slide my stabilizer bracket all the way up to the opening, just like that.

With it making contact I'm going to go ahead and tighten up the bottom one first. Then I'll just tighten up the side one. Now we want to be sure not to over tighten. Once both knobs are tight we can go ahead and tighten up those jam nuts. Go ahead and hand tighten it until it makes contact, and then we can just use a 14 millimeter wrench to tighten it the rest of the way down.You will have to provide your own tools.

Perfect. The only thing left to do is to load some cargo and then take it out. And that's going to complete our look at the Brophy Stabilizer Bracket for two inch receivers, part number RHSB.

Have not used it yet George


I purchased this product to use on my SxS and it worked like a charm. Rattle is completely absent at the hitch. I was initially shocked at the quality of this product. It's heavy steel, which makes me confident it will last for decades. I would highly recommend for any hitch application.


I use your product when I transport my dirty bike on the back of my Jeep. It does its job very well of keeping the bike from sweating or bouncing around.

Gerald M.


Still working excellently


I think this feature should be incorporated in all your hitch assemblies


I purchased this to use on my hitch on my camper bumper to take the movement out of the carrier that I use. The way the stabilizer bracket is designed it will only slide over the hitch a small amount (the bracket hits against the hitch). It took most of the up and down movement out of the carrier, but did little for the side to side. This would work very well if I had more clearance. However, I have 3 hitches (one on an f250, one on a ranger, and one on the camper) and I only have enough clearance on one of the three hitches for this to work effectively. On the other 2 the brackets that a tow chain attaches to interferes with the mounting of the stabilizer. I would recommend this to those who have at least 1.5 inches of hitch for the stabilizer to slide over. If you have less it will not work very effectively.


Good product. Definitely reduced the noise when towing. As always, you need to check the tightness of the two screws and the locking nuts every trip and when you stop for gas.


After modifications this did finally fit and hopefully it will work. I asked you folks to make sure it fit correctly and was assured that it did. Well that is not the case. Had I not been as handy working with metal this would have been a very different outcome. The part in question was rubbing against the chain anchor loop and would not fit or tighten correctly. Wanted to send it back but modified it instead. Not real happy about being assured that this fits and then does not !! You folks could do better in my humble opinion.



Thanks for your review. Just checked my 08 Ram 3500 stock hitch, and yup, 1 behind the mouth of the hitch are the chain loop anchors. It appears this product doesnt fit. Its a shame they do not give the dimensions from the ring edge to the edge beyond the wing bolts. How did you modify?


I received the stabilizer very quickly. I have not had an opportunity to use it yet, but I have checked it out on the hitch to make sure it fit correctly. It fit just as described and the receiver hitch is very tight. I think it will work great. It will be tested in a few weeks as we are headed out on a 1400 mile trip.



During that trip that we were on, the bracket fell apart. Would not recommend this item at all


I have been looking for a product to better secure our bike racks behind our 5th wheel. This should do the job.



I wish I knew about this product 5 years ago


Shipping date estimated at time of purchase was exact. Part is as advertised. I also previously ordered my after market hitch assembly and I am very satisfied with both purchases.


The Brophy stabilizer bracket completely eliminated the annoying trailer hitch rattle. Very pleased.



Great! Love the fact that the hitch doesn’t rattle when you go over speed bumps,etc.


This device made pulling my 35 foot trailer much better. I did not realize how the small amount of movement in the ball hitch amplified to make the trailer feel as if it were swaying. With this device, that is all gone.

The only problem I had with the device was the tightening bolts. They are soft and mushroomed after extended use of the device. I replace them with hardened bolts and have not had any issues since.


This is a good device if you are using it on exactlhy 2" square tubing, but it will not fit over the knurled edge of an extension piece where the extender is 2" but the knurl is ¼ thiskce.



I quit using it and just use a ratchet strap. It was difficult to use.


I have BOTH the "J-Pin" and this anti-shake thing to stop the shaking in my Yakima Swing out 4 bike carrier. My bike rack is an older model so it maybe slightly heavier than the newer versions. This anti-shake will NOT stop your shaking. It will "reduce" the shaking. I think for this to actually STOP the shaking those tightening screws would have to go thru the steel wall of the hitch and be in direct contact with the rack itself. Would drilling into your receiver weaken it? Perhaps. But I'm not towing a yacht so...But I wouldn't recommend it.
The torque the carrier/bike rack puts on the receiver hitch is what challenges products like this. So if you want to reduce the swing then get this thing. If you want to stop the rock this is not the pop.


The piece is made well, and could conceivably work, but the problem is that our trailer hitch (the receiver, on our car) has a lip around the edge of it. This piece does not fit around it, so it is pretty much useless. I have looked around and saw that pretty much all other hitches have the same lip, so this device is useless for all hitches. If it could fit on a hitch that didn't have a lip, then I think it would be a good device, but I haven't seen any hitch that this.


Unfortunately I could not use this on a 2015 Ram 1500. The adjustment bolts just did not fit the profile of the Ram's hitch.
I think one can be made to fit the Ram's hitch but it would need to have the bolts in a different location.
From what I could tell, this is a solid product. Tried it on a older hitch, just for sizing, and it it looks like it would be able to stabilize any reasonable loads.
It's a great idea and a well made product. It just did not fit my applications.


The T-wire harness was great, installed well and works fine.
The Seat covers are great as well, durable and easy to install, will consider rear seat covers if available?
The stabilizer bracket would not work with my platform rig, but looked of good quality and I will find a use for it.


Good idea. But application limited to smaller trailers. Not appropriate for large trailers w/ tongue weights of 800/1000 LBS and GVW around 10,000 LBS.

My experience was:1) the plastic twist knobs broke; 2) and both the set bolts bent so as to make them unusable to loosen the bracket. I had to cut the bolts off with a hack saw.


We received it today. Hit a snag though, we have a Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland and the item will not fit. The two rings (part of the hitch) that the trailer safety chains connect to obstruct the piece at the bottom and will not let it slide up flush with the hitch receiver so that it can be tightened. If those rings were not so close I know it would work perfectly. So - we have an RV mechanic that does all of our work and we will review this with him and see if he can make a change on the hitch rings that would allow us to use this product. It's not the product that is the problem it is the make of our hitch.


I could only static test this at present. I have considerable play in the original unit. I placed this unit on and tightened the bolts. There was absolutely no movement after that. It will get its true test on my next 5,000 mile trip.

I did read that a couple of people had a problem with the lock nut working loose. That is an area which would be prone to coming loose. So, I added a stainless steel lock washer between the lock nut and the flat washer for a little extra security.

Several people had an issue with the bolts landing on the raised lip of their hitch receiver. However, on my F-150, it goes over the lip and tightens on the flat metal. That makes a secure connection.


Close to a 5 star, the reason for 4 stars is due to the plastic t handles to tighten. If you want it to stop rattling you need to use channel locks to tighten the “T” handles and after a year the plastic wears. For the price I would just buy another once they wear completely out.


The idea is sound but the design is bad. the two tightening bolts are to close to the edge so when you put it on the receiver hitch and start to tighten it slides off to the side because every receiver I have ever seen has rounded corners and the tightening bolt lands right on the rounded part . In the picture it looks like they are in the middle but in reality they are not. it would work better if you had four bolts instead of two.


Well made, heavy duty. Solved problem of trailer swaying and clunking when starting and stopping. Takes the little play out of the receiver hitch.


Had to take it to work and have them modify it to work with my Blue Ox hitch. Beefed it up with 1/2" bolts thet did away with the hand tightening. Now when I arrive to my destination everything is tight.


I use this product in order to secure a bike rack that was driving me crazy every time I used it. The hitch accessory eliminate the noise and has sit up to multiple 300 mile plus road trips.

See what our Experts say about this Brophy Hitch Anti-Rattle

  • Do Weight Distribution Systems Need Anti-Rattle Devices
    If your Weight Distribution System has been properly set up, there should be no movement of the weight distribution shank in the receiver, as the spring bars should be placing a substantial amount of tension on the shank against the walls of the receiver, thus keeping it firmly in place. The tension applied would be much greater than what a product like the Brophy Anti-Rattle would provide. If you are experiencing the rattle when using the weight distribution head to tow a different trailer...

  • Additional Hitch Support For Plow Attachment
    We do not offer a set collar as you requested but may have something that will work for you. The 5/8-inch steel hitch pin has a verry high strength capacity and I don't think you will have an issue with bending it as you mentioned. If you are looking for more support for your hitch I recommend a stabilizer like part # RHSB. You just slide the bracket over the hich and tighten the screws down to add additional support for the hitch mounted accessories.

  • Will Brophy Stabilizer Bracket RHSB Fit a 2016 Jeep Wrangler with Mopar 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    You can use the Brophy stabilizer bracket # RHSB with the Mopar trailer hitch on your 2016 Jeep Wrangler as long as there is at least 1 inch of clearance around the hitch receiver. Also, you can position this bracket a couple of different ways so you can have the knobs pointed in different directions depending on how the bracket is oriented.

    It sure will! Actually, all 2 inch receivers have that lip or reinforcement around the receiver opening. If you look really closely in the video, you can see that the # RHSB slides right up against the face of the receiver tube, but not over it so it'll work just fine for you.

    Yes, the Brophy Stabilizer Bracket # RHSB that you referenced should work well with the Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3503.

I attached a review video for the # RHSB for you to check out as well.

You just slip it over the end of the shank of any accessory you want to use in the hitch and insert the shank in the receiver opening.

    Sounds like you need an anti-rattle device for your hitch/ball mount setup to reduce the rattle you are describing. I have a solution for your, but the part # RHSB isn't for towing applications. It would be for something like a cargo carrier or bike rack. Instead you would want the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232 as it will take out the rattle and works as a hitch lock.

  • Solutions for replacing the anti-rattle bolt on Rola Dart cargo carrier
    I have a few solutions for you, however, the discontinued Rola Dart cargo carrier used a specific threaded hitch bolt which is not available anymore. In the past, Rola confirmed with me that the threading can either be 7/16"-14 or 5/8"-11, so you could try to match up a bolt at a local hardware store to replace the original bolt. Another solution would be to drill out / remove the nut inside the Rola's shank and then use the universal Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches...

  • Anti-Rattle Adapter For Utility Trailer On 2012 GMC Acadia
    The Brophy Stabilizer Bracket, part # RHSB is designed for non-towing accessories to prevent shifting and rattling. I recommend the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer, part # BX88224.

  • Anti-Rattle Device Similar to Draw Tite QSP that Can Be Used on Ford Hitch
    While there are portions of the Draw Tite QSP part # 63080 that are plastic the mechanism that removes the rattle is actually made of metal as plastic would not be strong enough to hold the hitch accessory tight enough. This is supposed to be only used on Draw Tite hitches so for your factory Ford hitch the most similar option that would fit is the Brophy Stabilizer part # RHSB.

If you have a larger collar, then I recommend the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II - 2" Hitches # BX88224 or an internal system like the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - 2-5/8" Span # 63232.

    To determine if the Curt # C18151 Folding Cargo Carrier will work on your 2012 4Runner, you'll need to take a quick measurement as outlined in the FAQ article I've linked for you.
