Are you certain it was up and snapped into the hitch? Hook it all up and use your foot to not actually stand on the bar but test that it did clip into the hitch. Just one of my insane sanity checks. Good luck.

I assume you have the bars with the curve @ the end , If you had the old style I would say maybe it was upside down.

Have the same hitch and had the same problem. Download the install instructions you have to move brackets and then re adjust the cam length. I still would drop one every one in awhile If I did a real tight turn. It is a great and I sway hitch. Had absolutely no sway

Mine does not have clip to lock bar in. The upward pressure of the chain pulling up keeps it locked in place. My other hitch had the lock clip to prevent it coming out..

I know the dual-cam is a picky breed. My TV can't turn sharp enough to cause this. If not correct, it would seem to me, your WDH / anti-sway would do more harm than good. But, maybe your TV can turn much sharper than mine... maybe where you turned the road wasn't flat? Pics would be nice. Set it up again and take a photo (or two) of each side while straight then when in a tight turn.

There are no brackets, per se, to move. There are cam bar link mounts and the position is determined by the factory; by centering the WDH bar pockets on the cams the length of which is adjustable.
Here's mine on the floor and for sale.
