I have the Blue Ox basplate, the Blue Ox Alladin 7500# tow bar and the Blue Ox Patriot braking system and would purchase them again....

tow bar quality

Thanks for all the input and advice on the tow bar. I have one more question. How do you get the slack out where the hitch goes into the reciever? I was told that there was to be NO play where the two meet.

Huh? U slide it in and put in the pin.

It is what it. Is.

Btw, I run a blue ox alladin, pulling a wrangler tj. I've used it 2 years, and it was used when I bought it.

Absolutely no problems of any kind ever.

Blue ox makes a few different kinds of hitch immobilizers. I do not use one but was thinking about getting one to stop the same issue you are having.

I have two Blue Ox immobilizers. One where the drop receiver goes into the motorhome receiver, and one where the tow bar goes into the drop receiver. They work well.
