No. If you read their advertisements or watch their videos you will see.
I have no experience with either one.
The advertisements say Equalizer uses friction and the BO uses leverage.

The BO is nothing like the Equali I Zer hitch.

Leverage for anti-sway? I don't get it, but it's moot. I'm not shopping for a hitch- just curious, but not curious enough to do a bunch of research on it. I'll take your word for it.

To the OP, I think the bolt on style brackets are more intended for trailers like V-nose where the body of the trailer extends forward to the point it covers up the front a-frame extension of the trailer. In those examples you don't have access to place the saddle type brackets over the a-frame.

As for whether this hitch works for sway control, I use it on my SOB trailer, which is a typical box, tandem axle, leaf spring setup with flipped axles for high ground clearance ( in other words, probably as "bad" as you can get ). I towed the trailer 600 miles home just "on the ball" and felt a minor amount of sway at times in some heavy crosswinds. Since then I have towed it with the blue ox approx 30K miles, and there is no perceived sway at all under any condition I have towed in. Occasionally at speeds that maybe I should not admit to, but mostly I tow a little under 60 mph.
