I have towed the trailer several hundred miles now and havent used this attachment.

Am I missing something here???
It sounds like what you are describing may be twin friction sway control devices. While not a common practice, friction sway controls can be used in pairs. They also might be the bracket mounted Reese Dual Cams.
A friction sway control device is pictured below:
The older bracket type Reese Dual Cam Sway Controls are pictured below:
Good luck with the identification of your hitch components.
