4 Point Sway Control
Equal-i-zer® brand hitch works to help control 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 combat 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 reduce 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 works to stop 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 combat 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™.
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 can be safely and easily distributed to all axles of the vehicle.
