Video Transcript for Weigh Safe Ball Mounts DB8-25 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the replacement shank for your Weigh Safe or 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mounts. This replaces the shank that comes standard with your Weigh Safe WSA-25, or 180 Hitch TB8-25 2-Ball Mount. The shank portion slides into the receiver tube of your hitch, and then the shank's going to provide the attachment point for your ball mount platform. You'll see here that it has the multiple mounting holes. This lets you adjust the height. You can use this in either the drop or the rise positions to ensure a more level towing setup.

It's constructed of a rust-proof aluminum construction. It's made right here in the USA. Again, it's designed for a 2-1/2 inch by 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver. The maximum gross towing weight is 14,500 pounds. Maximum tongue weight is 2,200 pounds. If you're using this in the drop position and you have your platform at the lowest setting, it's going to give you a maximum drop of 8 inches.

That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of your ball platform. If you're using it in the rise position with it at the highest setting, it's going to give you a maximum rise of 9 inches. Then, you have an incremental height adjustment of 1 inch. The pinhole diameter right here will accept a standard 5/8 inch diameter pin to secure it inside the hitch. 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 Weigh Safe or 180 Hitch Ball Mount.

That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement shank for the Weigh Safe or 180 Hitch 2-ball Mounts.

I am so happy they offer replacement parts!!! We upgraded to a 1 ton truck and already had the 180 hitch for our old SUV. The simple fact we could buy just the shank to fit our new Super Duty saved us over $100. 596321

I didn't know you could purchase just a replacement shank from etrailer. Thanks to C/S I learned and took advantage of extending the versatility of the Weigh Safeā„¢ hitch package by purchasing a different shank (DB8-25) to extend the rise/drop capabilities. If you have multiple vehicles with different receiver opening dimensions and/or hitch heights, this can be less expensive option rather than purchasing multiple complete kits. They're -typically less than $100 delivered. Excellent service, products, and fast shipping. Highly recommend etrailer! 523258

  • Replacement Shank For 182 Hitch Or Weigh Safe Ball Mounts
  • The Replacement Shank for 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mounts does fit the same platform and dual sided hitch ball. The rating is raised to the 14.5k when you use the 2-5/16 inch ball and the 2-1/2 inch receiver shank without changing anything in the ball or platform. Here are the different shank drop measurements that will work with your trailer hitch: 6" drop # DB6-25 8" drop # DB8-25 10" drop # DB10-25 So you can change the shank, use your current platform and hitch balls and get the max...

  • Changing a Weigh Safe Shank Drop Length
  • You are correct. The Weigh Safe 2-1/2 shanks, like # DB8-25, are interchangeable between other 2-1/2 inch Weigh Safe shanks. The hitch ball platform, # WS01-5, is used with all the 2-1/2 inch Weigh Safe shanks. Therefore, the different drop length 2-1/2 inch shanks can be interchanged using this hitch ball platform.
