When you spend thousands of dollars on a tow vehicle and trailer, it just makes sense to protect it. Equal-i-zer gives you the protection and peace of mind you need to enjoy a vacation. Here are a few of the many advantages to owning an Equal-i-zer — the Original Sway Control Hitch.
1 Controls sway caused by cross winds.
Without a doubt, the biggest safety problem with towing trailers is that they can sway too easily — leading to loss of control. A number of factors contribute to sway, including: side winds, passing vehicles, quick lane changes, uneven roads, sudden stops, and even the trailer hitch itself.
Normal hitches simply don’t handle these situations well. In fact, they often enhance the problem and make driving all the more stressful.
Several options are available to deal with trailer sway:
The Equal-i-zer eliminates swaying hazards by incorporating sway control brackets, built to work in tandem with the patented hitch head. This distinctive design restricts the side-to-side movement of the weight distributing arms and virtually eliminates trailer sway.
The Equal-i-zer is easy to use, more effective at controlling trailer sway than two “add-on” sway bars, and has features comparable to elaborate hitch systems at a fraction of the cost. In fact, Equal-i-zer is the best value and best hitch on the market today!
Another common problem encountered when towing a trailer is “highway hop,” or the bouncing that often happens to trailers on uneven roadways. Uneven weight distribution is often the cause of this.
With ordinary ball-type hitches, most of the trailer tongue-weight gets carried on the back axle of the tow vehicle, often this raises the front end of the vehicle. The uneven distribution makes steering control more difficult — especially during emergency situations.
Weight distribution is needed to level a trailer and tow vehicle. Risks associated with driving a trailer without a weight distribution hitch include loss of steering control, braking difficulties, and hitch dragging.
To combat the weight distribution problem, the trailer and tow vehicle must be level. Options available to achieve proper weight distribution include:
When you consider all the safety benefits of the patented Equal-i-zer hitch, it would surely be worth almost any price, but it is surprisingly affordable.
