    Good product, good price and fast delivery. I'm very happy with your company and will highly recommend it.


    Excellent solution to a rattling hitch adapter. Highly recommend.


    Works as Advertised

    • Installs in minutes and very heavy duty
    • None
    Very well made and will last a lifetime. I have switched mine from hitch to hitch as I upgrades vehicles. I think I have had mine about eight years now and would not tow without it.

    Stabilizes my bike rack

    Works excellent for stabilizing my bike rack!

    used this hardware to stabilize a bike rack

    It worked perfectly and is holding the Thule bike rack in place. It had become loose in the hitch so that it rattled around. Not good for the hitch, the bikes or my nerves when I drove. This u-bolt piece is great quality and solved the problem. The video online about the product helped me see how it could solve the issue.
