    Glad I got it

    When first equipping the frame it did have slight wiggling. This goes on and all movement ends! The entire unit now feels like an extension of the car. Solid.

    Tee bar solution...

    Rating:
    Pros:
    • It works like a champ
    Cons:
    • Wish I had discovered earlier
    I carry my canoe on my jeep with a tee bar on the rear hitch and a light bar on the front. The tee bar wiggle in the rear receiver

    caused the rear of the canoe go side to side ( amplified due to the increased height). The StoAway Hitch Tightener does the trick in keeping the wiggle out. I bought two and will order some more for friends.

    Hitching without Bitching

    Pros:
    • Keeps the noise away
    Cons:
    • None
    I away hated to hear the hitch rattling even with a loaded trailer now since I added my Stowaway dont hear anything. Well worth the money.

    Fabulous!

    I recently bought a Saris bike rack and was very concerned by the amount of wobble when it was in the trailer hitch. Someone online suggested a hitch tightener so I bought yours, and it has been wonderful. I've just driven 3300 miles cross county and the bike and rack have been completely secure. Love it!

    Mandatory

    Rating:
    Pros:
    Cons:
    This item should be mandatory rather than an accessory! Don't buy a Stow-Away without it! With it you never know the box is out back (dont forget it though when you are backing-up). Without it the cargo wiggles and bounces like crazy.
