Finally ordered our ebikes and carrier. It was suggested to me to get a hitch stabilizer. That's fine.
Upon searching for such I was shocked at the difference of prices. I know you get what you pay for, but what a difference in prices. How much difference can there be? It's a clamp.
What do you use?

$15 hitch clamp from Amazon. I tow a boat that's close to 5,000 pounds and it's rock solid.

BTW, some are stainless and some are zinc, some are 2" and some 2 1/2", that's pretty much the basis for price differences.

I use this one from Amazon. I have used it on my 3,000 lb boat and it is great. No movement at all. Used it for horse trailer, hay trailer and motorcycle trailer. All rock steady.

My bike rack has its own hitch stabilizer as part of the attachment assembly. Are you sure your bike rack doesn't do this?

You have a fancy one. Lol! Ours just has the sleeve that slides into the hitch.

I would recommend the blue OX model I have used it since 2006 with no problems I had a cheaper one I got in 2005 It did not last the year.


Home is where I park it.
