Really? campingwilliamsons you couldn't be more wrong. (Unless there is another Equalizer company out there) This is taken right off of Equalizers website.
"The Equal-i-zer hitch's rigid bracket design provides two points of the 4-Point Sway Control. Our innovative rigid trailer brackets serve two purposes. First, they work in conjunction with the rotational friction sway controls to reduce trailer sway. Second, the forward and back friction of the hitch arm on the bracket serves as a secondary sway control system.
The sway control brackets work much like two "add-on" sway bars, but with more sway stopping pressure and less hassle. The sway control brackets are the innovative link that makes the Equal-i-zer hitch 4-Point Sway Control system so effective.
Put them all together and you have 4 points of positive friction working for you. Take your towing to the next level with Integrated 4-Point Sway Control™."
