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.

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

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

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.

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

Review from a similar Weigh Safe 180 Hitch in Ball Mounts


While looks are only skin deep :) this looks great, and the fit is excellent. I purchased a 2017 F150 and needed to buy a new ball mount, so I got this one instead of the 2 old units I had. The adaptability is a PLUS, and I will use it with the Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II - BX88224. I would suggest this combination to anyone 376049

Awesome product!!! Shipping was quick, I was originally concerned when I would receive the hitch because I needed it next Wenseday and wasn't sure if it would arrive. However I was relieved when I placed the order I received an email the same day the item had shipped. I got it the next day with plenty of time to spare. Thank you! 573645

Best ever. Only downfall is that they do not offer a better lock for thieves. 448284

  • 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. I have attached a video of this kit being installed on a similar 2016 F-150. The attached video also includes the installation of the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 brake controller. If you are needing a brake controller...

  • Changing Hitch Balls on Weigh Safe 180 Hitch
  • The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # LTB8-2 uses a retaining pin for the hitch balls, part # TB04. Weigh Safe has told us it has threads (see accompanying photo) for a 1/4"-20 screw to be used so you can remove it.

  • Shank Only for 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount with 8 Inch Drop
  • The shank you are looking for is the Replacement Shank for Weigh Safe or 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mounts # DB8-2. This shank has the 8 inches of drop you are looking for and is the same shank that is on the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # LTB8-2.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 7 or 8 Inch Drop
  • For your 2016 Yukon Denali with 22 inch wheels, I recommend the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls # LTB8-2. This has a 8 inch drop and both a 2 and 2-5/16 inch diameter hitch ball. I recommend using locks # WS06 to deter theft and secure your mount. This ball mount will not corrode or rust with an aluminum shank and stainless steel ball. I've attached a couple videos to assist.

  • Ground Clearance Dimension for 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls # LTB8-2
  • If you had the Weigh Safe Ball Mount # LTB8-2 in the max drop position with the 2-5/16 inch ball facing down it would measure a total of 15-1/4 inches from the top of the hitch hitch opening of the vehicle.

  • Recommended Towing Setup for a 2016 Ram 1500 Without Tow Package
  • I recommend always going for the highest rated hitch that is a confirmed fit. 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. Because of this I recommend going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15572 which is a Class V hitch with a 2 inch receiver. It has a Gross Towing Weight (GTW) of 15,000 lbs and a Tongue Weight...

  • The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls - 2inch Hitch - 8inch Drop, 9inch Rise - 10K # LTB8-2 weighs 20 lbs. It looks like it should weigh more but thankfully aluminum is pretty lightweight.

  • 180 Aluminum Ball Mount With A 1-7/8
  • The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Ball part # LTB8-2 is compatible with a variety of replaceable ball mounts, each of which will affect the maximum towing capacity of the receiver. The 180 2-Ball Hitch includes a 2" and 2 5/16" ball however if you want to tow with a 1 7/8" and 2" inch ball mount you will need the Dual-Sided Hitch Ball for 180 Hitch part # TB03 which is sold as a separate compatible attachment for this shank. You will be able to tow up to 7,500 lbs with the 1...

  • Distance from Hitch Pin Hole to Back of Vertical Shank on Weigh Safe Ball Mount # LTB8-2
  • I went out to our warehouse to take a look at the Weigh Safe 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # LTB8-2 referenced in your question. I measured a distance of right at 4-1/4 inches from the center of the furthest hitch pin hole to the back of the vertical shank. I have attached an image with this dimension labeled as well.

  • Weight of the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls Part # LTB8-2
  • The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls part # LTB8-2 has a shipping weight of 20 lbs which means the actual weight is likely around 17 lbs. The dual hitch balls that this ball mount comes with have a lock to secure to the shank but in order to prevent theft of the entire ball mount I highly recommend using the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock part # WS05.

According to the manufacturer, this shank has a maximum tongue weight of 1,500 lbs.

  • 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. I have attached a helpful article on ball mounts as well as our selection for you to filter through. One way to keep from having multiple ball mounts for different towing applications is to use an adjustable...

  • Does the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount Come in a Chrome Finish
  • The B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount part # BWTS10043B is only offered in black. There are chrome plated version of this ball mount available but the maximum drop for this is 7" using part # BWTS10040C. The maximum drop ball mount we have in a chrome finish is going to be 8". For a similar adjustable ball mount with dual hitch balls and drop of 8" in a chrome plated finish that fits 2" hitch receivers, I recommend using the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Balls part # LTB8-2.

  • Recommended Equipment to Tow With a 1995 GMC 3500
  • Oh I wouldn't be too concerned with your 1995 GMC 3500 Dually with a 454 motor having trouble pulling a camper trailer. A truck that is a 3500 model is made for heavy-duty applications. The best way to find out the towing weight capacity of any vehicle is by looking into the owner's manual. If the owner's manual doesn't have that information sometimes you can find it on a sticker inside the door frame. The only great concern that I would have is the age of the vehicle. Even if it...

  • 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.
