Easily Adjusts to Fit Your Setup

Towing trailers with different coupler sizes just got easier thanks to the 180 Hitch 2-ball mount. This ball mount features a 2" and 2-5/16" hitch ball on opposite ends of the ball mount platform. Switching to the opposite ball is fast and easy - simply flip over the platform, hitch-up, and go! Because both balls are contained on the platform, you won't have to keep track of separate balls that must be completely removed and installed each time you need to switch trailers.


Adjusting and setting up the 180 Hitch 2-ball mount to work with your specific trailer is easy. To switch hitch balls, unlock and pull out the dual pins and remove the platform from the shank. Next, flip the platform 180 degrees so that either the 2" or 2-5/16" hitch ball is on top. Then replace the platform and slide it along the shank to the desired height. Insert the dual pins and use one of the included keys to lock the pins in place. A dual-sided hitch ball with a 1-7/8" and a 2" hitch ball (TB03 - sold separately) is also available.


The 180 Hitch 2-ball mount can be used in either the drop or rise position to best suit your application.


Superior Aluminum and Stainless Steel Construction

From the first moment that you lay eyes on the 180 Hitch you'll see that you're getting a superior, well-made product. The 180 Hitch's shank and ball mount platform are made entirely of 6061 T6 billet aluminum, which is the same material that is used to build aircraft components, automobile frames, and freight liners. This type of aluminum is known for having superior strength while maintaining its light weight, which makes it highly desirable over hollow steel components. 6061 T6 aluminum is also rustproof, which means the 180 Hitch will maintain its clean, shiny, and impressive appearance for years to come. And the hitch balls are made of solid stainless steel, offering far greater protection against rust and corrosion than other steel hitch balls that are only painted or plated on the surface.


The 180 Hitch meets VESC V-5 regulations and is SAE J684 certified. These regulatory bodies - the Vehicle Equipment Safety Commission and the Society for Automotive Engineers - create standards for the design, construction, and performance of automotive and towing accessories. Weigh Safe has had this ball mount thoroughly tested in simulation to ensure that it complies with these standards. The result is a strong, safe, sturdy product that is built to last.

Video Transcript for Weigh Safe 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Weigh Safe line of 180 hitch two ball mounts. These are available for multiple size hitches in different rise and drop combinations.Now, to find the right drop that you're going to need you'll start by measuring the inside top edge of your receiver tube opening down to the ground, and you'll record that measurement. Then you'll use your trailer jack and level out your trailer, and you'll measure to the bottom of the coupler here. That difference figure is going to be the drop that you need. If this is at 21 and if our trailer, the bottom edge of the coupler here is at 17, we'll know we need 4 inches of drop. You want to measure all the trailers that you have and make sure that you buy a ball mount that has the right drop or rise for your configuration.Now, having a fully adjustable ball mount like this really makes towing and hauling much safer.

You can see here on our smaller utility trailer we had to drop it down to keep everything level, but with our trailer level, as we accelerate and brake the trailer's going to be pushing straight on the back of the truck. If this coupler we're too high, when we tried to stop it would push up on the back of the truck, when we'd take off it would pull down. Vice versa, if the tongue was too low, when we would stop it would push down on the back of the truck and when we accelerate that's going to pull up, so this is going to give us a much safer towing solution. Now we'll head over to the bigger trailer and see how it works there.Now, in this situation we've got an enclosed trailer. This has the 2-5/16 inch ball, and as you can see, the coupler is up a lot higher than what it was on our smaller trailer.

In this situation, you would have to have multiple ball mounts in order to make this work with different size balls, and a lot of time you'll have to switch those inaudible 00:01:39 take them off one ball mount and put them on the other.In this case, we can just pull our locking pin here on the side, slide that out. Now we'll rotate our ball down and around, bring it up to our appropriate height. We can replace our pin. I'm going to go up just a little bit higher than that to make sure we keep our trailer level. Then of course, to keep dirt and grime from getting into our lock, we want to put our dust cover back on.

Then we can lower our trailer down onto the ball.Now, if your trailer is even higher than the enclosed trailer we have, it's a super easy process to get it in the rise position. Of course, you'll pull your pin and clip or lock, and it's just a matter of flipping it right over. It's going to work exactly the same. You can pull your lock out and adjust for height up and down to match your setup. Now, on the 2 inch shank models, you are going to have two holes to choose from.

In some instances your 2 inch hitches kind of sit further in underneath the bumper, that allows you to extend it out a little bit without sacrificing any of your weight capacity.Now we want to go over the weight ratings, and with the different size shanks you're going to have different weight ratings to follow. With the 2 inch shank model we've got a 1,500 pound tongue weight rating, that's the maximum downward force we can put on the receiver tube opening. We have a 10,000 pound gross trailer weight rating when using the 2-5/16 inch ball. That's going to be the total weight of your trailer, anything you might load up on it.When using the 2 inch ball, we've got an 8,000 pound gross trailer weight rating. The 2-1/2 inch shank model has a 2,200 pound tongue weight rating, 8,000 pound capacity for the 2 inch ball, and a 14,500 capacity for the 2-5/16. Then once we go into the 3 inch shank, tongue weight's still at 2,200. Our 2 inch ball's going to still be at 8,000, but the 2-5/16 inch ball goes up to 21,000. Of course, you're never going to want to exceed the weight ratings for your vehicle, so go off whichever those sets of numbers are lowest.Now, the 180 ball mounts are designed to give really good adjustability. Being able to raise and lower the level of our ball is going to help us with a lot of different trailers, or if we want to use the ball mount on several different vehicles. Now, this allows for 1 inch incremental adjustment of our ball platform so we can raise and lower it to custom fit it to any situation we might encounter. We have them all the way down to a 10 inch drop up to an 11 inch rise, so we've really got all spectrums covered there.Weigh Safe has used really high quality materials. We've got T6061 aluminum, this is going to be solid block aluminum so we don't have any seams or any welds that we have to deal with. The same for the ball platform, it's the 6061, and we're also going to have our 2-5/16 and 2 inch stainless steel ball. These two materials are really going to do a great job at resisting corrosion, and you really shouldn't have any issues for the life of the hitch.Now, also included with your 180 ball mount, we've got the dual locking pin here. This locks our ball mount in position so it can't be moved up or down without us knowing it. Has a simple key lock here, we'll just turn that 180 degrees, see we're able to remove those pins. Simply let our ball mount come down off, we can switch that around into the 2 inch version, set it to our desired height, and now when you flip it your lock's going to go in on there other side so just keep that in mind. That's just a push it in until it clicks, make sure it's secure, and then just flip the cover right back on.Now, with the Weigh Safe ball mount you will need to provide your own pin and clip. Something we do recommend, however, making an investment like this is securing it to the truck. You can do that with part number WS05. That's going to be the Weigh Safe Locking Hitch Pin. That's going to work out for the 2, 2-1/2, or 3 inch ball mounts. Now, the 180's designed to fit the three major hitch sizes that we're going to encounter. We've got the 2 inch by 2 inch version, the 2-1/2 by 2-1/2 inch, and the 3 inch by 3 inch.Now, here's a good look at the different rise and drop combos available. We're going to have the 4 inch drop with the 5 inch rise, a 6 inch drop with a 7 inch rise, an 8 inch drop with a 9 inch rise, or a 10 inch drop with an 11 inch rise. Now, one thing to keep in mind when we're dealing with the 3 inch shank version, the rise and the drop will stay the same, so 6 and 6, 4 and 4, 8 and 8, 10 and 10. Now, the 180 ball mount also meets the criteria to be SAEJ684 certified and VESC regulation V5 compliant. Also, the 180 ball mount is made right here in the United States.Now let's take a minute to compare the 180 ball mount versus others that our customers look at. For a more cost effective option, very often they look at the Fast Weigh Flash E Series. This is going to be an adjustable ball mount. It's going to give you the 2 and the 2-5/16 inch ball. The biggest difference you're going to notice is that it has more of a chrome kind of a look to it, even though it is an aluminum mount, but the balls are chrome plated. These tend to rust and corrode more, whereas when we look at the 180 ball mount, it has the stainless steel ball, so we really won't have to worry about that.Also, your 180 hitch is going to use two pins to hold our ball mount in place, where the Fast Weigh just uses one. The biggest difference you'll see there with the single pin, all of the pressure's being placed on that one pin and over time they can wear. Whereas, with the two pin setup you're spreading that energy out over a greater area. Something else you're going to notice with the E Series is that it doesn't quite have the fit and finish that we get out of the 180. The 180, you can tell is really machined very well with close inaudible 00:07:53 to keep everything nice and tight. The Flash E Series is just going to be a little bit looser.Now, on the other end of the spectrum our customers often look at the Weigh Safe with the built in tongue weight scale. Essentially, this is going to give you all of the same functions that we get with the 180 hitch, it just offers the built in scale. This is going to add convenience when trying to get the proper tongue weight and comfort in knowing that you're loaded properly. The downside would be that both balls aren't attached to the ball mount at the same time, so when you're using your 2 inch ball, you'll need to store your 2-5/16 inch ball, and vice versa.Now, in taking a look at our customer reviews, there's several things that you'll notice right away. The first is everybody talks about how good the build quality is and how convenient it is to have. It's like Larry F. said, "This product is awesome. I can tow anything with it and it's easy to use. No more carrying six different ball mounts at different heights when I want to hook onto a trailer. I set it and done. I love it. If I ever thought I would need another one I would buy it. By the way, I have buddies that decided after seeing mine they could get a cheaper steel one, and they hate it. They all went and spent again for this one. Buy one and never have to buy another."Or Jim who said, "I wish I would have bought one of these years ago so I wouldn't have a whole collection of rusty ball mounts of different drop heights laying around. This one will never ruse, which is great for me because I trailer during the winter and my state uses salt on the roads. I have four trailers with different drops, it does it all, and I can turn it around so it doesn't stick out of the back which is now illegal in my state, so it solved that issue also." That'll complete our look at the Weigh Safe line of 180 hitch two ball mounts.

Hitch and Balls had great fit and finish. The adjustable height was perfect to accommodate different trailer tongues heights. We have a four wheel trailer and one axle was off the ground with the previous hitch. This hitch allows weight to be distributed equally on the two axles. Crystal was an immense help in determining the product needed as well as the appropriate locking pin. She obviously had excellent product knowledge. She is the reason I would return as a customer. 596199

I was really surprised with the quality of the hitch. I keep it at the ready in the trucks tool box. The flexibility of height for the many different hauls I do is fantastic. I’m everyone’s friend with a pickup truck. 727319

by:

The ball that wasent being used (on bottom) the chrome flaked off making it look almost as bad as the ball on top that was doing all the work. I got chrome for looks, I understand the working ball does get chewed up but I expect the one not being used tho stay nice looking. So when my trailer is hooked up the bottom ball sticks out like a soar thumb. Since this correspondence came from you I gave a poor rating but if it came from the web I would a good rating the hitch works very well. 706743

Great hitch! I use it daily pulling trailers for work and it hasn’t let me down yet. The ball mount that slides into the receiver is a solid (not hollow) piece of aluminum and you can tell that it’s stout. I really appreciate how easy it easy to switch over with the turn of a key, the pull of the pin and also how easy it easy to adjust the ball height . I would recommend that you keep all the moving parts clean and oiled. The road dust and traile tongue dust tends to gravitate down between the slide areas of the ball mount and the adjustment hole edge, but that’s no biggy... I just simply clean it with some Aluminum Brite (NAPA SELLS IT) about once every three months or so and then spray some silicone on the areas and you’re good to go. Great product and it was fast shipping. I would highly recommend this hitch. I get asked all the time where I got it from. 654972

Review from a similar Weigh Safe 180 Hitch in Ball Mounts


The Receiver is a bit heavy, but other than that its everything I was looking for. I had multiple receivers for 2 vehicles. A ford expedition and a Toyota Venza. The venza needs lift and the expedition needs drops. This one hitch does it all for me. 200 was a lot but it is the last hitch I will ever buy. The aluminum receiver will hold up better than the powder coated ones I had and will not freeze to the hitch. Stainless steel ball will never rust. The instructions say to not leave it in when not towing is good advice because you forget about the other ball. Pricey but you get what you pay for. 572790

While I have not actually towed with the ball mount yet it is a high quality piece of equipment. The machining work is excellent as all the pieces fit together perfect. It feels more substantial than I anticipated. Like I said I have not towed with it yet as my tow vehicle is new and not broken in yet but I have no doubt that this ball mount will suit my needs and then some. 570938

Review from a similar Weigh Safe 180 Hitch in Ball Mounts


It fits a little loose in my 2019 ford F2 52 1/2 inch receiver. It also is not long enough for me to lower my tailgate without hitting the top of the jack on the trailer. Is there a reason why it fits so loosely? I feel that this will wear the shank out over time. Please advise 607601


Comments

According to my contacts at Weigh Safe it is not uncommon for there to be a loose fit for some hitches. Their recommendation is to use some shim tape to snug everything up.

  • The difference between the Curt Trailer Hitch Receivers # C15312 and # C15313 for your 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 is that part # C15312 will work with vehicles that have the factory cutout bumper only while part # C15313 is designed to be used with models that have the 10" deep drop bumper. Both options have the same Class V rating with a 2" receiver opening. They have a Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) rating of 16,000 lbs and a Tongue Weight (TW) rating of 2,400 lbs. When used with a...

  • Anti Rattle Device for 180 Weigh Safe Weight Adjustable Ball Mount
  • To remove the movement in the hitch between the Weigh Safe # LTB6-2 and the hitch opening you would need to use a wedge style anti-rattle like the part # RM-061. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well. This could easily be used with a cargo carrier as well.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness and Mounting Brackets for a 2016 Nissan Frontier
  • We do have a variety of trailer connectors and mounting brackets that you can use on your 2016 Nissan Frontier. If you need a 4-Way Flat connector then the Hopkins # HM43575 will work if you have the tow package. If you don't have the tow package then I recommend the T-One # 118525. You can mount either of these using the Tow Ready # 18144 with a no-drill bracket like part # 18140. For a 7-Way without the tow package use the T-One # 118266 with the mounting bracket # PK12711U and...

  • Availability of Installation Video for Curt Trailer Hitch 13357 on a 2004 Ford F-150
  • At this point in time we haven't had the chance to shoot an installation video of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13357 on a 2004 Ford F-150 but we do have the installation instructions which I have linked to this page for you to reference as well as a picture of this installed that a customer sent in. We do have an installation video of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13352 on a 2005 Ford F-150. This trailer hitch has the same weight ratings of the Curt trailer hitch you referenced,...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount for 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • For your 2 inch trailer hitch, there are many adjustable ball mount options. The # LTB6-2 has the dual ball mount platform and the # WS6-2 has the single ball with the integrated scale. The shank and locks on these are identical. The # AM3410 and the # AM3405 are also nearly identical with the greaseless ball being the only difference. This simply has a coating for slightly less friction noise. We don't carry the other options you mentioned so I can't really give you an accurate...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2015 Ford F-150 Pulling a 5,700 lb Boat Trailer
  • I have a couple of solutions for you to choose from so that you can safely tow your new boat trailer with your 2015 Ford F-150. The first thing that you can do is install another hitch that is rated for higher towing capacities. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C14016 is a Class IV hitch, which has a 10,000 lbs Gross Towing Weight (GTW) and 1,000 lbs Tongue Weight (TW). If you were to use a Weight Distribution (WD) system as well, it would bump those totals up to 12,000 lbs GTW and...

  • Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount That Has Clearance to Fit Rock Tamers Mudflaps
  • While the Fastway adjustable ball mount you referenced does not have the clearance needed for a Rock Tamer Mud Flap # ERT00108 we do have the very similar 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls # LTB6-2 which would have the needed clearance and can do the 6 inches of drop you'd need as well. I attached review videos for the ballmount and mud flap system for you to check out as well.

  • Recommendation on an Aluminum Adjustable Ball Mount with a 2-5/16 Inch Ball
  • I have a solution for you. The Weigh Safe 2 Inch Hitch, # WS6-2, is an aluminum constructed ball mount that includes interchangeable 2 and 2-5/16 inch trailer hitch balls. The ball mount has a max drop of 6 inches and a max rise of 7 inches. This Weigh Safe ball mount includes a built-in tongue weight scale and is made in the USA. For a little more economical ball mount, I like the Weigh Safe 180 Hitch, # LTB6-2. This ball mount uses a 180-degree ball head that has both a 2 inch...

  • Can I Get The Weigh Safe 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount With 1-7/8 Inch And 2 Inch Hitch Balls?
  • The Weigh Safe 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls - 2" Hitch - 6" Drop, 7" Rise - 10K, # LTB6-2, only comes with the 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch hitch balls. However, they do have the hitch balls available that you are asking for. The 1-7/8" and 2" Dual-Sided Hitch Ball for 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount - 8,000 lbs, # TB03. Note that it does have a lower towing capacity rating of 8,000 lbs due to the smaller hitch ball size.

  • Replacement Shank Recommendation for 180 Series Adjustable Ball Mount to Gain More Drop
  • The Replacement Shank for Weigh Safe or 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mounts # DB8-2 that you referenced is what you need. This will give the current 180 adjustable ball mount that your husband has 2 more inches of drop. Right now he has our part # LTB6-2 which is good for up to 6 inches of drop but if he replaces the current shank with the # DB8-2 he'll gain 2 more inches of drop (8 inches total). For even more drop we have the part # DB10-2 which would increase the drop capabilities up to 10 inches....

  • Can the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock Be Ordered To Match the Weigh Safe 180 Ball Mount
  • There is a chance that the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock part # WS05 will come with the same key that is used on your Weigh Safe 180 Ball Mount like part # LTB6-2 but unfortunately, we do not have any way to guarantee this though I wish we did. However, you can purchase the Locking Dual Pin Assembly and Hitch Pin Set for 180 Hitch and Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mounts part # WS06 to get matching locks for the hitch pin and adjustment pin.

  • Recommended Dual Ball Trailer Hitch Ball Mount with 1-7/8 and 2 Hitch Balls
  • We do have a solution for you using the Weigh Safe 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mounts like part # LTB6-2 that you referenced. There are no configurations available from Weigh Safe that have the 1-7/8"/2" hitch balls directly but you can use the part mentioned above with the 1-7/8" and 2" Dual-Sided Hitch Ball # TB03 instead to get exactly what you are looking for. Just please note that these have 7,500 lbs and 8,000 lbs weight ratings so you won't get the full 10K raing that you would with the...

  • Can Curt Rebellion XD Shock-Absorbing Ball Mount Be Used with Lighter Trailers
  • This is a really great question. I reached out to my contact at Curt and he said that while the Rebellion XD Shock-Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount # C45949 is a really nice option for heavier tongue weights to help smooth out the ride, it's not going to provide much benefit for a lighter trailer like yours. Your boat simply isn't going to have enough tongue weight to really compress the cushioned isolator, so it's going to end up being a case of paying for something you won't actually use....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Wiring For 2017 Dodge Durnango
  • For your 2017 Dodge Durango, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2", # 75713, that you mentioned. I have attached an installation video for you. This is a very nice hitch. If you need a ball mount, I recommend the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches - 7,500 lbs, # 989900. This kit will give you to different ball mounts of different heights and two hitch balls to connect your trailer. You may want an adjustable ball mount like the 180 Hitch...

  • 2-5/16" Hitch Ball for Weigh Safe 180 Hitch
  • There is a 2-5/16" hitch ball with a 10,000 lb capacity available for a Weigh Safe 180 Hitch such as # LTB6-2 but the one you referenced, # WSB-XXL10, is not a fit. Instead you need the Replacement 2" and 2-5/16" Dual-Sided Hitch Ball for 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # TB07.

  • How Much Does the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls 6 Inch Drop Weigh
  • The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls part # LTB6-2 is made almost entirely of 6061 T6 billet aluminum so it is very light at only around 19 lbs. The single ball version of this unit, part # WS6-2 weighs around 18 lbs. The lightest aluminum ball mount we offer with 6" of drop is the Flash E Series Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Chrome Balls part # FA42-00-2600 which only weighs around 17 lbs. The above weights are all shipping weight so you can subtract another 1 lb or so...

  • Recommended Trailer Jack and Adjustable Ball Mount for 6000 Pound Trailer And Truck
  • For your trailer jack, I recommend the Fulton Bolt-Thru Swivel Marine Jack - Bolt On - Sidewind - 12" Lift - 1,500 lbs # FXP15L. This will give you a total of 24-3/4 inches extended and will give you a jack able to handle the tongue weight of your trailer while still giving you a wheel. For towing, you want your trailer to be level, so from the sound of it you may need to get a ball mount that has a lower drop height. You may want to consider an adjustable ball mount like the B&W Tow...

  • What Is the Correct 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount for a Lifted 2019 Chevrolet Silverado
  • Most likely, the correct 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount for your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado with 2" lift is going to be part # LTB6-2 for up to a 6" drop. However, there are a lot of variables to this so the first thing you need to do is measure from the ground to the top inside edge of your trailer hitch opening and then subtract the distance from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler while level. If you don't have a trailer yet you can use 17" as this is pretty normal for most underslung...

  • Availability of Adjustable Ball Mount with 1-7/8 Inch and 2 Inch Hitch Ball
  • I do not recommend cutting off the 2-5/16 inch ball portion from the dual ball unit included with the Weigh Safe 180 Ball Mount # LTB6-2. Modifying the ball in this manner would void the manufacturer's warranty and may negatively affect its integrity (not to mention it would be pretty difficult to do). I instead recommend the Fastway Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # DTSTBM6607, which features the desired 2 inch and 1-7/8 inch hitch ball and the same 6 inch drop or 7 inch rise as...
