hitch mount tire carrier questions

for those that have them do they rattle side to side? id imagine that from the weight of the tire that it would move side to side? id like to build one but don't wanna waste my time if it will move side to side so ant input on this would be nice thank you

yup when you tighten it it keeps it from bouncing up and down in the hitch and the friction from the two peices being tightened keep it from sliding side to side give me a sec and ill run out and show you hot it goes on. just gotta put some force into tightening it lol
