Weigh Safe Hitch had issue with first one but etrailer was on top of getting another out to me also purchased Dexter suspension kit ; after a slow starte got kit installed on my 20' trailer looks good and seems to work. Fast delivery also Etrailer take good care of their customers 332052

I purchased a Weight Safe system for a 2 1/2 receiver, found that when I flipped the shank up instead of down, the shank pin hole would not fit on the receiver as it hit the back of the bumper before the holes aligned. I could have cut the bumper back to make the shank fit, but decided to purchase a 2 inch shank with two holes instead. The 2 inch shank fits perfectly (with a 2 inch receiver adapter) and allows me to flip the shank for trailers that need a higher ball height. I still have the 2 1/2 shank if I need to pull more than 10K pounds. 609436
