1. Sway Control Brackets:

Rigid trailer attachments work with friction sway control to eliminate trailer sway. Brackets are height adjustable to control the amount of weight distribution tension on the spring arms.

2. Spring Arms:

The spring arms serve two purposes. When raised onto the sway control brackets they transfer trailer tongue weight evenly to the tow vehicle. They also work with the friction sway control to stop trailer sway.

3. Downward Pressure:

Downward pressure from trailer tongue increases friction sway control. Trailer hitch ball mounts here.

4. Upward Pressure:

Sway control brackets distribute weight by maintaining upward pressure on spring arms. The amount of pressure on the spring arms is a factor of trailer tongue weight and vehicle suspension. The friction sway control utilizes this pressure to control trailer sway.

5. Friction sway control:

Friction is enhanced by downward pressure from trailer tongue and upward pressure on spring arms. These opposing pressures come together to create an unequaled sway control system.

Sway Control

4 Point Sway Control™.


Equal-i-zer® brand hitch eliminates trailer sway with 4-Point Sway Control™. Equal-i-zer®'s 4-Point Sway Control™ is a combination of 4 positive friction areas that work together to stop trailer sway. 4-Point Sway Control™ is superior to “add-on” friction bars or cam-type systems that are used with conventional or chain-style weight distribution hitches.

2 Sway Control Brackets

Innovative rigid trailer attachments serve two purposes. First, they work in conjunction with the rotational friction sway controls to eliminate 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 2 “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. Our standard sway control brackets fit trailer frames up to 6 inches tall. Larger brackets for 8 and 10 inch trailer frames are also available.

2 Rotational Friction Sway Controls

Rotational friction stops side to side sway before it starts. The rotational friction sway control is activated by downward pressure from the trailer tongue and upward pressure on the spring arms. The spring arms link the rotational sway control to the sway control brackets and distribute trailer tongue weight. The rigidity of the sway control brackets allow the dual rotational friction sway control to safely and effectively hold the trailer in line behind the tow vehicle and stop sway before it starts.

Put them all together and you have 4 points of positive friction working for you. Take your towing to the next level with 4-Point Sway Control™.

Weight Distribution

Without weight distribution the weight of the trailer pushes the rear of the tow vehicle down. Hazards associated with driving a trailer without weight distribution include loss of steering control, braking difficulties, and hitch dragging. Equal-i-zer® brand hitch combats such hazards by providing proper weight distribution. With Equal-i-zer® the trailers' weight is safely and easily distributed to all axles of the vehicle.

Trailer Compatibility

Boat Trailers

The Original Equal-i-zer® Sway Control Hitch can help you achieve worry free towing for your boating adventures. In the past boat owners have been limited by their inability to use weight distribution with their surge brake trailers. Equal-i-zer®'s unique sway brackets allow total compatibility with surge brakes.

Until now Sway Control has also escaped the boat towers grasp. Traditional add on sway products limit or distort the amount of front to back movement and render surge brakes useless or even dangerous. The Original Equal-i-zer® Sway Control Hitch allows anyone with surge brakes to have the benefit and comfort of 4-Point Sway Control™.

All Trailer Types

The outstanding qualities of The Original Equal-i-zer® Sway Control hitch are being enjoyed by owners of all types of trailers. The Equal-i-zer® works flawlessly with boat trailers, trailers with surge brakes, utility trailers, horse trailers, cargo haulers, pole (or single) tongue and many other trailer types.

Our compatibility comes from the ability to fit many configurations of tow vehicle and trailer. Trailer frames on the road vary greatly in size and style. Our standard trailer brackets can fit up to a 6" trailer frame. Also available are 8" and 10" brackets to accommodate newer lightweight aluminum or tall I-beam trailer frames. The Equal-i-zer®’s 4-Point Sway Control™ brackets are all “bolt around” style and don’t require drilling. This unique design of the sway control brackets allow flexible placement on the trailer frame. This means that tongue jacks, propane tanks, and other obstacles are not a problem. Equal-i-zer® shanks also come in a variety of sizes to fit almost any height of receiver.

So whether you are towing your adventure behind you or you are heading to the job site; The Original Equal-i-zer® Sway Control Hitch can make your towing experience safe and relaxing.
