If your hardware store doesn't have thick enough hose to press onto the female quick release, wrap some cut-down spokes in electrical tape and place them into the hitch hose to increase stiffness/reduce trailer oscillation.
Can you please post a picture of the mount on the bike. Mine child trailer clamps on to the chainstay and has come loose a few times. I don't trust it nor so I like that it could damage the paint there. Need something cheap and effective.
