How It Works: Motion-Dampening Chains & Springs eliminate the need for sway bars
Traditional Weight Distribution Sway Bars
Traditional weight distribution hitches utilize a spring bar system. As the spring bars are lifted, the leverage pushes the tow vehicle’s weight towards the front axle.
Disadvantage: Unnecessary Bounce
However, after going through a dip, the spring bar can act like a diving board—loading and releasing kinetic energy, causing the truck and trailer to continue to bounce.
Andersen Weight Distribution Hitch
The Andersen Weight Distribution Hitch efficiently shifts the tow vehicle’s weight forward towards the front axle (without any lifting).
Advantage: Motion-Dampening Eliminates Bounce
The chains and patented motion-dampening springs resist bounce by pulling at the right-angle to the up and down movement, eliminating unnecessary bounce.
How It Works: Sway control auto-adjusts to tongue load weight
The sway control in the ball housing system self-adjusts to tongue load—meaning the heavier the load the greater the sway control. We recommend at least 300 lbs on the tongue to allow the mechanism to be able to provide anti-sway using the friction material in the housing.
With the coupler attached to the Tapered Ball, there’s no need for grease. The ball connects to anti-sway plate, integrating the motion-dampening chain & spring system.The Friction Cone is a brake-like material that works with the tapered ball and ball housing to eliminate sway. The friction between the tapered ball and housing allows the hitch to “self-adjust” according to the tongue weight.The Anti-Sway Ball Housing securely holds the tapered ball and friction cone in place. The two holes allow for height adjustment on the adjustment rack
