Availability Of An Anti-Rattle Device for Use With A 1-1/4 Inch To 2 Inch Hitch Expander  


The expander I have for using my 2 bike rack on my 1 1/4 hitch has so much sway and swing in it I cant stand it! I drive a lot of rough roads to mountainbiking trailheads, and I swear it is going to shear the bolt or just fall off. I am dying to find a HOLLOW SHANK 1 1/4 to 2 expander so I can put an anti rattle/sway expansion locking bolt INSIDE the shank. My 2 bike rack has this set up in the hollow 2 shank, and on our minivan with a 2 hitch there is no sway or rattle of the bike rack. DOES ANYONE MAKE A HOLLOW SHANK 1 14 TO 2 EXPANDER? Please say yes!! Thanks so much

I would recommend the CURT Trailer Hitch Anti-Rattle Kit # F-315. This anti-rattle bracket works on a 1-1/4 inch hitch and when tightened down helps to eliminate the noise and vibration of a hitch accessory inside the trailer hitch.

I do not have a hitch expander that has a hollow shank that will fit in a 1-1/4 inch hitch.

Also, remember when using a hitch expander it will reduce your trailer hitch tongue weight capacity by 50 percent.
