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.

I just received my 2.5" receiver 180 - 2 ball mount hitch, along with the hitch receiver lock. I could not be happier with this product. The manufacturing is flawless with a beautifully machined and finished end product. This thing is beautiful! It's a solid chunk of Aluminum with Stainless Steel hitch balls, and is machined so the ball mount may be reversed and stored to the back side of the drop. No more bashed shins walking around the truck! I couldn't ask for a better finish on this ball mount. I now have a beast of a hitch to put to work on my beast of a truck. 722696

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.

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


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

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

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.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch on 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The ball mount I highly recommend for your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty that has a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver like the Curt # C15802 is the B&W Tow & Stow because of its high quality, stow-away design, and the fact it protects the ball mount platform from theft. The hitch ball platform of this mount actually flips underneath the shank to face your truck, saving you from accidentally slamming your leg into it when walking behind your F-250. Additionally, when the Tow & Stow is in your...

  • Recommended Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • The Weigh Safe 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # LTB8-3 referenced in your question is designed to fit 3 inch receivers, which refers to the inside dimension of the receiver. Since you have a 2-1/2 inch receiver on your 2017 Ford F-350, I instead recommend the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # LTB8-25. This aluminum, adjustable ball mount is designed to fit the hitch on your truck and features a maximum drop of 8 inches or a maximum rise of 9 inches. It has a gross towing weight of 14,500 pounds when...

  • Measurements Of 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount With Stainless Hitch Balls # LTB8-25
  • I went out to our warehouse and took some measurements for you. The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Balls - 2-1/2" Hitch - 8" Drop, 9" Rise - 14.5K # LTB8-25 has a measurement of 8-7/8 inches from center of hitch pin to center of ball.

I've attached a photo to help.

  • Should Tow Vehicle and Trailer be Level for Towing
  • Yes. When you are towing you want both your tow vehicle and trailer to be level. To help you achieve this it is best to make sure that you have the correct ball mount for your application. I have attached a helpful article that goes over how to do so. A lot of people like to use an adjustable ball mount, like the popular Weigh Safe 180 # LTB8-25 to make it a little easier. Another thing to help keep your trailer level is making sure that your Tongue Weight (TW) is 10-15% of the weight...

  • Where are Weigh Safe Ball Mounts Made
  • Weigh Safe ball mounts like the part # LTB8-25 are made in the USA. As long as the hitch on your 2014 Ram 2500 is a 2-1/2 inch hitch this ball mount will fit it and work well. It can provide a max drop of 8 inches.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for Toyota Tundra with 6 Inch Lift
  • With your Toyota Tundra rated to tow 11,000 lbs, you can get a ball mount that meets or exceeds that weight, but you will also be limited by whatever your trailer hitch receiver is rated for. The lesser of those 3 numbers is what your gross towing capacity will be. Based on your 6 inch lift, I'd recommend an adjustable ball mount with at least an 8 inch drop. If you have a 2 inch receiver, then I'd suggest the EZ Heavy Duty Adjustable Hitch with Combo Ball, # AM3298. This hitch has...

  • Determining What Ball Mount Drop is Needed on a GMC Denali With a 8-1/2 In Lift and 37 in Tires
  • You will need to measure both the hitch height on GMC Denali and the trailer coupler height of your trailer to determine how much drop will be needed for a ball mount. If you measured from the top of your trailer hitch to the ground and this number is the 27-/34 inches that you referenced, then you will only need the trailer measurement. Measure, on level ground, from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground. Once, you have this number, subtract the coupler height from the hitch...

  • Should I use 8 Inch Drop Ballmount or 10 Inch Drop Ballmount With 9 Inches Between Hitch and Coupler
  • The general rule is to get a ball mount that sits a little higher because the tongue weight of the vehicle causes the ball mount to drop a small amount. You want to be within 2 inches of level with the trailer when towing. Since your 9 inches away from level, I recommend the Weigh Safe 8 inch drop ball mount part # LTB8-25 for 2-1/2 inch hitches to tow level with your trailer.

  • Recommended 2-1/2 Inch Adjustable Ball Mount for Use with Hitch Mounted Mud Flaps
  • The best option we have for you is the Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount part # FA42-00-2825. This ball mount is made of aluminium which means it only weighs around 17 lbs. It has adjustments for 8" drop to 8" rise and it comes with both a 2" and 2-5/16" hitch ball. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the support gusset on this ball mount is 3". Therefore, you would need to measure from the outer end of your trailer hitch and subtract that from the above 3" measurement...
