4-point Sway Control

The Equal-i-zer® hitch's superior design makes it the best performing sway control hitch on the market. Four steel on steel friction points - known as Integrated 4-Point Sway Control™ - provide unmatched resistance to your trail's attempts to sway. Equal-i-zer's Integrated 4-Point Sway Control is a combination of 4 positive friction areas that work together to combat trailer sway. Integrated 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.

Rotational Friction Sway Controls

The patented Equal-i-zer head adds two powerful points of rotational friction to resist trailer sway. 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 rotational friction sway control to safely and effectively hold the trailer in line behind the tow vehicle and combat sway before it starts.


Sway Control Brackets


The Equal-i-zer hitch's rigid bracket design provides two points of the 4-Point Sway Control. Our innovative rigid trailer brackets 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 two "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.

Put them all together and you have 4 points of positive friction working for you. Take your towing to the next level with Integrated 4-Point Sway Control™.

It is the driver's responsibility to make the necessary adjustments to their driving habits, trailer, tow vehicle, and towing equipment to avoid trailer sway. Trailer sway has many causes, including but not limited to: improper trailer loading, tire pressure, driving techniques, speed, passing vehicles, weather conditions, road conditions, and others. There is no 100% qualitative measurement of trailer sway. Users must exercise caution at all times while towing a trailer.

We had head winds, cross winds, rain, snow, sleet, and hail. Eighteen wheelers meeting us on two lane roads or passing us on freeways had no effect on our stability at all and we had absolutely no fish tailing. The Equal-i-zer is a 100% improvement over the (conventional weight distribution) hitch.
