This.

The manual calls for lubrication.

“Should I grease my Equal-i-zer hitch?
The friction surfaces of the head should be kept clean and well lubricated with a good quality multi-purpose or bearing grease. These are the surfaces where the arm sockets rub against the top and bottom plates of the head.

It is not necessary to apply grease to the L-brackets on any hitch model.

This blog provides step-by-step instructions on how to properly lube your Equal-i-zer hitch: http://www.equalizerhitch.com/...”

OK, the round bar E2 does not look "just like" the 4pt Equal-i-zer.
The hitch heads are very different and the 4pt Equal-i-zer uses trunnion bars, not round bars.
The 4pt Equal-i-zer is made in the US, while the cheaper E2 is made overseas.

Well, if you flip through the pictures on that link, you'll find the one that does look "just like", or at least, similar enough to, the Equil-i-zer.
