Hitch Anti Rattle Device

Greetings
Has anyone tried any of the numerous hitch anti-rattle devices I see on the internet?
I would like feedback if anyone likes one model better that the others.
Thanks

I use the U bolt with flat plate type,if your hitch is the 2-1/2" size and requires a bushing for 2" you will need a Longer U bolt, not all have that option! Youroo! !

Pulling a TT, it feels like it moves in the receiver on stop and start.

I use the ReadyBrake made here in Kansas where I live. After installing it on the back of my motorhome, I could sense the movement between the receiver and the inserted device. I added two of their de-rattler's and it really made it solid. They may cost a bit more, but the quality is outstanding. Take a look at their "De-Rattler" at this link: Towing Accessories

Hope this helps.

If it feels like a little pull or push when you start or stop, it might be your break adjustment. See if adjusting the break when you are driving slowly on a flat area will change it.

U-bolt (stainless) and flat plate (actually has a slight bend along one edge to allow plate to lie flush on receiver raised edge and down onto the hitch).

I use this:

Hitch-Vise Fit Guide for 2.5 inch factory and aftermarket Class 4/5 hitches

Very stout, and definitely stops the rattle. Easy to use too. I have a 2 1/2" for my truck, they also make a 2" one as well. Not cheap at 60 bucks, but worth every penny to me. I pull a work trailer daily, and I was amazed at how much noise it stopped.

I use the Hitch Clamp. Works great and won't break the bank.
