A Quiet Ball Hitch for a Smooth Towing Experience

Towing is a common practice for many people who need to transport heavy loads or trailers; however, one issue that can arise when towing is the loud noise generated by the tow hitch and ball mount. The clanking and rattling sounds can be annoying and distracting, and they may lead to getting pulled over by a concerned lawman. Fortunately, there are several methods you can use to reduce the sound of your towing and ball mount, ensuring a smoother, quieter, and safer towing experience.

The Best Hitch to Reduce Rattling & Noises

The Fastway Silent Towing Ball Mount is the "silent" star in the world of towing, and it’s not hard to see why. Our revolutionary noise-reduction technology is a simple yet effective way to prevent ball mount rattling that would otherwise disturb yourself and fellow motorists.

The FLASH Silent Ball Mount utilizes an internal mechanism that tightly secures the shank to the receiver and the hitch ball holder to the shank. This reduces the clanking associated with an unsteady ball mount, while still delivering the strength and durability of our made-in-America aluminum ball mounts.

Best of all, our easy-to-install Silent Towing Ball Mount is specially designed to work with locking hitch pins to keep your setup secure on the open road.

Other Methods to Reduce Towing Clatter

Manually tightening the ball mount is often the first step in reducing clatter. The ball mount is the part where the trailer's hitch attaches to the truck's hitch. When the ball mount is loose, it can bounce and create noise during the journey. Tightening the ball mount can mitigate this problem by preventing the ball mount from vibrating and making noise.

Lubricating the ball mount can also help to reduce the noise of towing. Use a lubricant such as grease or petroleum jelly to coat the surface where the ball mount and the hitch meet. This will help to eliminate friction between these two parts and reduce the noise levels.

Another effective method to reduce the noise of towing is by choosing a quiet route. Avoid routes that have rough or unpaved roads as these can increase the noise levels. Instead, opt for quieter roads such as highways, which have smoother surfaces.

Lastly, it goes without saying that you should store your ball mount(s) in a safe place when you’re not towing to avoid damage and weathering. Excess moisture and dirt can quickly lead to rust, which will only exacerbate the problem of ball mount clatter and instability.
