Stainless Tow Bar Anti-Rattle Shim | 4-Piece Kit
The Couplemate™ Anti-Rattle Shim kit is specifically engineered to eliminate the excessive slack between the tow bar and the hitch/receiver.
When installed, these anti-rattle hitch shims secure the receiver shank, stopping your hitch from rattling within the tow bar.
You can watch the official fitting guide below or read a step-by-step tutorial here.
Why Does Receiver Bar Rattle Occur?
Rattle occurs due to space between your tow bar and hitch/receiver. Tow bar shims are the best way to reduce rattle.
Most Australian tow bars are a 50mm x 50mm box section, which is why our premium cast receivers have a 2-inch shank. However, not all tow bars on the market are this size, meaning that the additional space generates a rattling noise.
Couplemate™ Engineers generally recommend steering away from Hitch Clamps, as the installation is difficult to do correctly and safely. Instead, customers chasing an anti-rattle tow hitch may have a better experience using our Stainless Shim Kit.
