Bike/acc.rack

I bought a hitch mount bike rack and the damn thing just wobbles all over the place. I worried that it's gonna bend the bumper or the main bar that the bike rack is made of. Is there a way to tighten it up? I see acc. racks on cars all the time and their racks don't move at all. Advice please.

Anyone? I know there are anti wobble devices out there. I was just wondering what any of you guys have done.

Wrap the male end (the part that goes into the reciever) in duct-tape a few times. See if it makes the fit tighter, if it's still loose- add a few more wraps. It's not permanent, but it will do the trick cheaply and effectively. If you're a real Jeeper you should already have duct tape in your vehicle!

Have duct tape, bailing wire and gum. I made metal wedges and that sort of worked, they fell out after a few miles. It just pisses me off that the manufacturer tells me that's just how it is.
