The original Equal-i-zer hitch is built entirely of American made steel and crafted in the USA. Equal-i-zer hitch is a unique two-in-one design that combines weight distribution with integrated 4-point sway control in one easy to use unit. 4-point sway control eliminates trailer sway caused by towing hazards such as crosswinds, passing vehicles and quick stops.
Equal-i-zer® brand hitch works to help control trailer sway with 4-Point Sway Control. Equal-i-zer®'s 4-Point Sway Control is a combination of 4 positive friction areas that work together to combat trailer sway. 4-Point Sway Control is superior to add-on friction bars or cam-type systems that are used with conventional or chain-style weight distribution hitches.
2 Sway Control Brackets
Innovative rigid trailer attachments serve two purposes. First, they work in conjunction with the rotational friction sway controls to reduce trailer sway. Second, the forward and back friction of the hitch arm on the bracket serves as a secondary sway control system. The sway control brackets work much like 2 add-on sway bars, but with more sway stopping pressure and less hassle. The sway control brackets are the innovative link that makes the Equal-i-zer® hitch 4-Point Sway Control system so effective. The standard sway control brackets fit trailer frames up to 6 inches tall.
2 Rotational Friction Sway Controls
Rotational friction works to stop side to side sway before it starts. The rotational friction sway control is activated by downward pressure from the trailer tongue and upward pressure on the spring arms. The spring arms link the rotational sway control to the sway control brackets and distribute trailer tongue weight. The rigidity of the sway control brackets allow the dual rotational friction sway control to safely and effectively hold the trailer in line behind the tow vehicle and combat sway before it starts.
Without weight distribution the weight of the trailer pushes the rear of the tow vehicle down. Hazards associated with driving a trailer without weight distribution include loss of steering control, braking difficulties, and hitch dragging. Equal-i-zer® brand hitch combats such hazards by providing proper weight distribution. With Equal-i-zer® the trailers' weight can be safely and easily distributed to all axles of the vehicle.
The Equal-i-zer® works with boat trailers, trailers with surge brakes, utility trailers, horse trailers, cargo haulers, pole (or single) tongue and many other trailer types.
The standard trailer brackets can fit up to a 6" trailer frame. The Equal-i-zer®'s 4-Point Sway Control brackets are often all bolt around style and don't require drilling. This unique design of the sway control brackets allow flexible placement on the trailer frame. This means that tongue jacks, propane tanks, and other obstacles are often not a problem.
