To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Easy to install but doesn't stay tight. I purchased this in hopes of keeping the slop out of my weight distribution hitch when pulling my camper. After traveling, and with the ups and downs of road conditions, it comes loose. Hitch manufacturers should do a better job of narrowing down the tolerances between the receiver tube and hitch shank.
I had read that once tightened the bolts may come loose. I found this to be true and snugged the nuts down as needed. When I needed to remove it, I found that one of the nuts had frozen. I was able to loosen the other and get it off the hitch, fortunately. The frozen nut, however, will not come off no matter what I try. this makes this a useless item and no refund available. Wrote to manufacturer and am waiting for a response. My opinion is the metal used for the nut and bolt is too soft for the torque needed for the application.
Only had it for a couple months clearly it’s not galvanized it’s already rusting and it’s not even winter yet haven’t even been to the beach or anything no salt anywhere to be found so as I said it’ll work for now but will eventually be junk
The first one failed, and I wondered if I had over torqued it. This one, I installed using a torque wrench to 35#. It also stripped a thread. That should not happen, assuming this is Gr. 2 steel, which carries recommended torque of 37#, which should be 80% of max torque. Disappointing. Ultra cheap nuts. Never seen failure like this.
U bolt supplied with this unit is very very weak and will bend easily. I used it this week to stabilize a bike rack of fewer than 300 lbs and when I made it to my destination I noticed the bolt had bent in +/- 25 degrees just behind the nut and washers. This was the first and only time I have used this unit it was received 8/3/2022. The date of writing this is 8/6/2022.
It didn’t last one trip it broke, not sure if it was just a bad one because I can’t understand how it broke. I use it to tow my travel trailer about 8000 pounds but still can’t understand how it could break
