Sway Control Brackets

Rigid trailer brackets are mounted directly on the trailer frame. Using friction, they resist movement from the spring arms, working to eliminate sway and keep your trailer safely behind you. Brackets are height adjustable to control the amount of weight distribution tension on the spring arms, providing the optimum level of weight distribution and increasing braking and steering control.

Spring Arms

The spring arms serve two purposes. When raised onto the sway control brackets they transfer trailer tongue weight evenly to the tow vehicle. They also work with the friction sway control to combat trailer sway.

Downward Pressure

Downward pressure from the trailer tongue increases friction sway control. The trailer coupler mounts here, and can be hooked up from any angle, providing an easy hitching and unhitching experience. 

Upward Pressure

Sway control brackets distribute weight by maintaining upward pressure on the spring arms. The amount of pressure on the spring arms is a factor of trailer tongue weight and vehicle suspension. The 4-Point Sway Control™ utilizes this pressure to combat trailer sway and provide the highest level of weight distribution, providing a more stress-free, enjoyable drive. 

Friction Sway Control

Friction is enhanced by downward pressure from the trailer tongue and upward pressure on the spring arms. These opposing pressures come together to create an unequaled sway control system. This pressure combats trailer sway more effectively than any other sway control hitch on the market, providing you peace of mind every time you tow.

Weight Distribution

The Equal-i-zer hitch provides a smooth, level ride with the best weight distribution on the market. There are many weight distribution hitch options, but no other trailer hitch has the same level of Integrated Sway Control. In fact, for the last five years, Trailer Life readers have voted the Equal-i-zer hitch as their favorite hitch in America, every single year. No other hitch in the world has received this honor. 

The Equal-i-zer hitch gives you the safety of unmatched weight distribution, providing better steering and braking control, along with the peace of mind from superior sway control- all in one easy-to-use hitch!

Weight Distribution Keeps You Safe

Have you ever driven by a vehicle towing a trailer and noticed the tongue or back of the trailer sagging? Without weight distribution, the trailer’s tongue weight added to the tow vehicle can cause it to “teeter-totter” over the rear axle which lifts the weight off the front wheels. This can cause a serious loss of steering and braking control, and can also contribute to a setup that is more likely to sway. 

The Equal-i-zer hitch’s weight distributing design effectively transfers trailer tongue weight to all the axles and helps keep the front of the tow vehicle firmly on the road.


Without an Equal

The Equal-i-zer hitch keeps you safer than any other trailer hitch on the market, helping you tow with confidence and ease. Ball mounts and other weight distribution hitches fall short. They don't provide the same level of sway control and weight distribution needed for passing semi trucks, unexpected quick braking, and driving in crosswinds or bad weather.

The Equal-i-zer hitch gives you a safer ride by providing both sway control and weight distribution. This provides better steering, braking, and sway control, which help eliminate stressful driving situations and work to keep your family and your investment safe on the road. 

A Custom Fit for All Trailers

The Equal-i-zer hitch is engineered to work with virtually all bumper-pull trailers, including RV, horse, cargo, boat, and utility trailers, including trailers with surge brakes.

The Equal-i-zer hitch's 4-Point Sway Control™ brackets bolt directly on the trailer frame without drilling. This unique design of the sway control brackets allow flexible placement on the trailer frame. This provides ease of installation around tongue jacks, propane tanks and other items bolted to the trailer frame. Our standard trailer brackets fit up to a 6" trailer frame. We also have brackets for 4-3/8", 8" and 10" frames to accommodate BAL Norco frames, newer lightweight aluminum, or tall I-beam trailer frames. 

Equal-i-zer shanks are available in a variety of sizes which provides a custom fit for virtually every receiver height. Visit our Shank Sizes page to find out which shank is best for you.
