Homemade Hitch Silencer For A Trailer
I can tell whenever a trailer is being pulled down the road because of the rattling noise made by the pickup’s receiver hitch. My homemade “hitch silencer” solved that problem for me. It consists of 2 L-shaped metal brackets spaced a couple of inches apart. One bracket is welded to the hitch, and the other one is free to travel. A bolt goes through both brackets, and a nut is welded to one of them. Turning the bolt causes the forward bracket to wedge tightly into the receiver hitch so that it stays nice and quiet.
