Wink OT:(a bit) Hitch anti-rattle??

I'm considering THIS:Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches Roadmaster Hitch Accessories RM-061

Anyone else use any type of anti-rattle device?

I plan on including one with each mobility lift I sell & install as well-those things really wiggle!

This looks like it could be used upside-down to take the load off of it.

*Don't know what a "Chin Knocker" is.....

*I looked at the possibility of using the Roadmaster upside down but I don't think there is enough room with our trucks (mine has the factory hitch)...lots of folks report doing this on the Etrailer site....

If you take up the space with a used plastic bag it my still move but you won't hear it rattle anymore. Always worked in a pinch.

Stinky's shin-knocker killed a whole car.

Stinky now wears the license plate frame from the deceased car... I call hit his pound of flesh for the affront.

Yes really. When you're desperate you'll try anything. And I think "chin knocker" might be "shin knocker"? We've all done that!

-just don't think there is enough room for the threads under the bumper-between the bumper and hitch-this WOULD really be the better way to attach it though.....
