When we hear of a product that will help improve the boat-towing process, our ears perk up. Softride’s cleverly designed QuietRide Locking Hitch Pin definitely caught our attention. The hitch pin eliminates noise from loose-fitting hitch-mounted ball mounts as it prevents the ball mount from separating from the receiver. A stainless steel bolt secures the nut to the receiver to prevent the rattling and clanking often heard during transit. In addition, it protects your tow vehicle’s drive train by reducing the amount of stress on the vehicle frame, receiver hitch, ball mount and trailer coupler. The QuietRide is compatible with 2-inch receivers and hitch systems and comes with an anti-rattle nut, a 5/8-inch steel bolt, a saltwater safe brass lock and two keys.
