    Any good stabilizers to add to the hitch?

    I think the chamfered edges on the Yak Holdup contributes to the rack rocking & rolling when I drive... especially on the cobblestone roads of Olde City Philadelphia.....

    Anything people tried on them?

    Saw on things while googling...

    ...and stuff on Amazon & ebay

    To me they look just like a simple clamp.

    I've noticed that after a few years of usage on the T2 it wobbles a bit more than it use too. After snugging up all the bolts it still rocked a little in the hitch so I slid some brass shim stock I had laying around in there. Now its a bit tighter and still easy to remove.
