Bike Hitch "adapter"?

I got a bike hitch rack that I'm ecstatic about because now I can haul my bike on weekends to be able to enjoy the entire ride, not bothering with some less than decent roads I used to have to travel by to get to the better riding areas.

Question: Rack holds the bike very securely on the rack, and the rack is attached with a thick pin to the hitch - but there is some play. Ican see it wobble some while in transit, mainly when turning or navigating over some bumpy roads, train tracks, etc.

Is there something that can be inserted to help stabilize the rack so there's no wobbling?

That adapter works great now, I just want to find a better lighter weight hitch. This one is heavy duty, very secure, but a pain in the a$s with the plates and screws
