Video Transcript for Weigh Safe Ball Mounts DB6-25 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the replacement shank for your Waysafe 180 hitch 2-ball mount. This replaces the shank that came standard with your Waysafe WS6-25 or 180 Hitch TB6-25 2-ball mount. The shank portion slides into the receiver tube on your hitch, and then it provides the attachment point for your ball mount platform. You can see here that it still has the multiple mounting hole design. That's going to let you adjust the height of the hitch ball platform. You can use this in either the drop or the rise positions to ensure a level towing setup.

It's constructed of a rust-proof aluminum construction. The product's made right here in the USA. It is designed for a 2 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver, and the maximum gross towing weight for this unit is 14,500 lbs. If you're using it in the drop position with your head assembly, or with your platform at the lowest setting, it's going to give you a maximum drop of 6 inches. That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the top of your ball platform. If you're using it in the rise position with the platform at the highest setting, it's going to give you a maximum rise of 7 inches doing those same measurements. Again, you can adjust the height, it has an incremental height adjustment, in increments of 1 inch.

Please note that the maximum gross towing weight is achieved when the shank is used with the 2 5/16 inch diameter hitch ball that came standard with your Waysafe or 180 Hitch ball mount. That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement shank for the Waysafe or 180 Hitch 2-ball mounts.
