Curt # C13410 vs Draw-Tite # 76227 for 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon

Question:

I am considering Curt # C13410 and Draw-Tite # 76227 hitches. I think the Curt #C13410 is the one I want. BUT, I learn that Draw-Tite # 76227 has hole setups for a J-Pin Anti-Rattle. Towing probably wont matter, but using hitch for bike rack report say rack moves. This really matter. Also are there other easy options for the Curt hitch for Anti-Rattle devices which are not too difficult to install?? 2017 Subaru Outback 2.5 Premium

The J-pin style of anti rattle device that can be used with the Draw Tite hitch part # 76227 is the part # 63201 and is not normally used with bike racks as they normally have anti-rattle devices built into the racks. The bike rack would have to have a hollow shank for the # 63201 to be compatible but if the rack did have a hollow shank and you really did want the Curt hitch # C13410 you could use the anti rattle # 63232 with this hitch (or the Draw Tite) and you'd accomplish the same thing. The # 63232 is just as easy and effective as the J-pin device also. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

If you let me know what bike rack you have I can see what the best anti-rattle device solution would be.

That's a great rack! The Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH69TX actually comes with an anti-rattle hitch pin bolt that will hold it very securely to the hitch which allows it to be very stable. It can be set up as a 2 bike rack or a 4- bike rack. This means you can use the Curt hitch you referenced and still have one of the most efficient anti-rattle setups you can find.
