Equalizer Weight Distribution Hitch
With a history of providing unparalleled safety and control to trailer owners for more than 30 years, the Equalizer Hitch is considered by many to be the very best sway control hitch device available. The hitch's patented head, called the Tri-Wing, provides two points of steel-on-steel friction that work to eliminate trailer sway by causing downward pressure from the weight of the trailer tongue, where the hitch ball is mounted.
Simultaneously, upward pressure is exerted by the spring arms attached to rigid, height-adjustable sway control brackets. These brackets add two more steel-on-steel friction points to further counteract trailer sway while also helping to evenly distribute weight between the trailer and tow vehicle. This weight distribution hitch configuration creates a strong bridge between the two vehicles, combating the tendency of the tow vehicle to teeter over its rear axle, causing steering control loss and braking difficulties.
Overall, these opposing forces of pressure, one upwards and the other downwards, provide unprecedented anti-sway control in a unique four-point frictional system that prevents trailer sway even before is has a chance to start occurring.
