Anti-Rattle Hitch Solutions
Enjoy quieter, more comfortable towing
An anti-rattle hitch device is the perfect way to add comfort to your towing adventures. An anti-rattle is designed to tighten down onto the receiver hitch connection point to reduce vibrations and noise coming from the trailer or hitch-mounted accessory.
CURT offers two anti-rattle options: anti-rattle hitch pins and anti-rattle clamps. Anti-rattle pins are threaded, allowing them to be tightened onto a shim piece that inserts into a hollow shank. Anti-rattle hitch clamps are compatible with hollow or solid shanks and require no tools for installation.

No-tool anti-rattle hitch clamp installation
Step 1: Place clamp over shank
CURT anti-rattle hitch clamps require zero tools for installation because they feature an adjustable lever. To install, begin by placing the clamp over the shank. Clamps are available for various receiver sizes, so make sure you purchase the correct clamp size.
Step 2: Insert shank into receiver
Next, insert the shank of the ball mount, cargo carrier, bike rack or other towing accessory into the receiver. Secure the shank with a proper hitch pin. Then, position the U-bolt clamp so it wraps under the receiver lip, while the lever base remains on the shank.
Step 3: Close clamp lever
Finally, close the hitch clamp lever so that it tightens down onto the shank. No tools necessary! If the clamp does not create a firm lock, open the lever again and turn the adjustment nut to tighten the connection.
Superior comfort, control and confidence
For an enhanced anti-rattle solution, CURT ShockDrop cushion hitch products, including Rebellion XD and RockerBall, feature a cushion isolator to greatly reduce jerking and jarring.
Advantages of anti-rattle hitch pins
An anti-rattle hitch pin is great for hollow-shank accessories, helping to prevent annoying vibrations and wobbling while towing. Each kit is made up of an anti-rattle shim that inserts into the hollow shank and a threaded pin.
The threaded anti-rattle pin screws into the shim piece and tightens down securely, preventing noise. The pin is designed to replace a standard hitch pin – no extra hitch pin required! – and the threaded design allows it to be tightly installed for a secure connection.
