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 Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - LTB8-2 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Weigh Safe 180 Ball Mount. This Bar Mount features a maximum gross towing weight of 10,000 when using the 2 5/16" ball and 8,000 pounds when using the 2" ball. The tongue weight capacity on the unit is 1,500 pounds and it's made in the USA and covered with a limited lifetime warranty.Now this is designed to fit inside of a 2" X 2" trailer hitch receiver. The ball mount with the included hitch bolts lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank slides into the receiver tube of your hitch and then the hitch balls provide the connection point for your trailer's coupler. Again it does have two differently sized hitch balls on it so that's going to let you tow trailers with different coupler sizes.

The hitch balls are made from stainless steel which is highly resistant to rust and corrosion. To switch between the hitch balls, all you have to do is remove the platform flip it over and then reinstall it.So to do that we need to remove the dust cap that comes with the kit. Take one of our keys, place it in the lock, rotate it and the remove the dual locked assembly. Now we can take our platform, it can exit the unit from the top or from the bottom. So you take it, then you flip it over and then reinstall it and then once you find the setting you need for your application reinstall the dual pin assembly to secure it in place.

This is also how you adjust it so you can slide it up and down the adjustable portion.The adjustable height lets you tow trailers of different heights using the same vehicle and the same ball mount. This also helps to insure that ball height is as level as possible with the trailer's coupler height which makes for an overall safer towing set up. Once you find the setting you need. Place in the dual pin assembly and move it to the lock position. Then you can take your dust cap and place it back over the unit there.Now this platform adjusts in increments of 1".

That's the distance we have between each adjustment hole, center on center. The locking dual pins secure the platform to the shank for added security. The rubber cover is included and protects the lock core from dust and debris and again the keys are included. The shank and the mounting platform are made from aluminum which is a nice rust proof construction. Provides a clean finish that will last a really long time.

The shank in the adjustable portion is a solid block construction, so that's made from a solid block of aluminum and so is the platform here. That's a solid design as well.Even the hitch balls, if you we're to remove the hitch balls from the platform and take them out, you would notice that hitch balls, it's actually a one piece design and then it has the 2" and 2 5/16" ball molded out of that solid block stainless steel as well. So we're looking, overall, at a really nice, strong, durable mount. Also the aluminum construction makes it a pretty lightweight mount for as big as it is.On the back of the shank, you'll notice that it has 2 hitch pin holes. You choose whatever one works best for your application. Your hitch pin and clip are hitch locked to secure it to your hitch is sold separately. The pin holes on this unit will accept a standard 5/8" diameter pen. Those items are available at etrailer.com.This can be used in either the drop or rise positions. If you have it in the drop position and the platform at the lowest setting, it's going to give you a maximum drop of 8". That's from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch down to the top of the ball platform. If you have it in the rise position with the platform at the highest setting it's going to give you a maximum rise of 9" and again it is adjustable in increments of 1".A few measurements to go over with real quick. The distance that we have from the center of this pin hole to the center of the hitch balls is 8.5". From the center of this pin hole to the center of the hitch balls is 9 5/8". That's going to do it for today's look at the Weigh Safe 180 Ball Mount.

The transaction could not have gone smoother. Technical support to ensure proper sizing was great. Noah was terrific in arranging quick shipping and the package arrived as planned and I was able to use the hitch to transport my BBQ trailer to a 300 person company picnic. Woo-hoo! 526423

Great product.. doesn't feel cheaply made and very happy with quick shipment 570090

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

The product is well made and being aluminum is not nearly as heavy as steel ones. The 8" maximum drop is accurate, which is not the case with some fixed drop drawbars I have purchased from other sellers. Delivery was faster than anticipated and arrived undamaged. I have placed several orders with etrailer.com and have been more than satisfied with their service, followup and prices. I'm using this on a 2017 Chev Suburban Premier. The trailer hitch is so high that I need an 8" drop to pull my Ski Nautique and 18' car hauler. Having both 2" and 2 5/16" balls is very convenient and turning the piece over that has the balls on it is very easy. It locks onto the upper part of the drawbar. 633320

I just received my 180 hitch with 10 inch drop and locking dual pin assembly and hitch pin set. Delivery was incredibly fast ( 2 days). Packaged well. It is a very sturdy hitch and fits well in my receiver without wiggle. It would have been nice if a bolt was supplied to remove the hitch ball pin to change the balls. It would also be nice to have the option to get the locking dual pin assembly OR the standard non-locking one so you don't have two when you only want a locking assembly. Overall a great product. 615401

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

I've been a tool maker for 30+ years and I can say that the machine work and finish are pretty good for a ball mount. My only concern is the aluminum pin that will be holding all the tongue weight. I would have liked for it to be stainless steel, but overall a solid drop hitch ball mount. 581124

While traveling through Florida I purchased a new ultra lite camping travel trailer to tow behind my Mercedes Sprinter. The trailer was equipped with an "extreme" package that included a lift kit to increase ground clearance. Needed a ball mount with flexibility to achieve the extra required rise for tongue. A little research left little doubt the tb4-2 was the best value for quality and price. It is a beautifully crafted piece. You will not be disappointed. Etrailer has an excellent web site to navigate and a email question was promptly answered. Shipment was quick with excellent tracking. A great purchase. Very happy. 357619

The hitch it self is great, I bought the different size reversible ball for other trailor that I owned. After couple of tows with boat, I tried to pull the center in lift the sliding ball out to put smaller ball in and could not ball in out. The center pin has a threaded bolt hole to help by putting in bolt to pull pin out. That didn't do it either. I'm assuming that the aluminum hitch has a grove in the pun holding it? 503322

This is my first adjustable height ball mount hitch and the out of the box impression is excellent. The machining fit and finish is perfect. The pieces slide together without any binding and no excessive slop. The stainless steel balls are held in with a pin to easily remove or replace as needed to change if you need more than 2 ball sizes. The load and tongue capacities are machined into the mount. I have 2 trailers at two different heights and ball sizes. I'll never have to remove this ball mount again, just flip it to the correct ball size, set the height for the trailer and go. 467212

The hitch is great, fit and finish is nice. It is great to have a hitch that I don't have to worry about rust! The other great feature is how you can store the ball assembly in the front of the hitch, so you won't walk into it! 563335

  • Adding a 7-Way and Trailer Hitch Receiver to a 2016 Ford F-150 Without the Factory Tow Package
  • To install a 7-Way at the rear of your 2016 Ford F-150 you will need to install the Universal Installation Kit # ETBC7. This will simply plug into the existing 4-Way on your F-150 and then you will need to run the wiring for the 12V Power and to your Brake Controller.

Since your max towing capacity is limited by the lowest rated item in your towing setup, it is much better for your 2016 Ram 1500's towing capacity to be the deciding factor instead of the trailer hitch receiver.

It has a Gross Towing Weight (GTW) of 15,000 lbs and a Tongue Weight...

  • Front Wheels on Trailer are Raised Off of the Ground When Connected to Tow Vehicle
  • If the front axle of your trailer is off the ground when you hook it up to your tow vehicle then what you need is a ball mount with the correct Drop for your towing setup. This would be much easier than trying to adjust the height of your trailer to make sure that you are towing level.

  • Recommended 180 Ball Mount for Ford F-250 With Multiple Trailers
  • For your 2006 Ford F250, I recommend the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount with 8 inch drop # LTB8-2 because it will give you the ability to tow trailers that have a lower coupler tongue. I also recommend getting the Locking Dual Pin Assembly # WS06 and the cover # WS08. This will give you the easy lock with the same key and keep moisture and debris out of the lock.
