Weigh Safe ball mount coupled to a trailer

This Weigh Safe ball mount has an easy-to-use, built-in scale that measures your trailer's tongue weight every time you tow. If the scale indicates that your tongue weight is too low or too high, you can adjust it before you head out so that you can complete your journey with the peace of mind that your setup is safe.

What is Tongue Weight?

Tongue weight (TW) refers to the weight that the fully loaded trailer exerts downward on the hitch ball of the tow vehicle. Tongue weight is typically 10 percent - and should not exceed 15 percent - of your gross trailer weight. For example, a 10,000-lb trailer should have a tongue weight between 1,000 lbs and 1,500 lbs. You can adjust the tongue weight of your trailer by removing or adding cargo, or redistributing the load on the trailer. The tongue weight should not exceed the capacity of your tow vehicle, your hitch, or any of your towing components.

Why is Tongue Weight So Important?

Weigh Safe helps ensure proper trailer tongue weight

Simply put, too little tongue weight can cause trailer sway and too much tongue weight can cause the tow vehicle to perform poorly. You may have difficulty steering, gaining traction, or braking when driving a setup that has too much weight pushing down on the rear of the vehicle. Ultimately, towing with an improper tongue weight can cause you to lose control of your vehicle or cause your trailer to separate from the vehicle.

Built-In Tongue Weight Scale

The gauge of the Weigh Safe built-in tongue weight scale

The Weigh Safe ball mount's built-in scale signals you to adjust your load before you hit the road, resulting in a much safer and enjoyable towing experience. Before this ball mount, gauging your trailer's tongue weight was a hassle. You had to rely on inefficient bathroom scales, make a trip to the weigh station, or purchase a separate tongue weight scale. But with the Weigh Safe's built-in scale, measuring your tongue weight is as easy as coupling your trailer to your ball mount. Simply hook-up your trailer to the Weigh Safe ball mount just as you would any other ball mount. The weight of your trailer will push down on the hitch ball, which in turn pushes down on an internal hydraulic piston that sits on a bed of oil. When the piston drops into the oil, the pressure reading is sent out to the scale.

Easily Adjusts to Fit Your Setup

Weigh Safe ball mount has adjustable height

Adjusting and setting up the Weigh Safe ball mount to work with your specific trailer is easy. First, unlock and pull out the dual pins and remove the platform from the shank. Next, pull out the hitch ball retaining pin from the back of the platform and insert either the 2" or 2-5/16" hitch ball. A 1-7/8" hitch ball (WSB-L - sold separately) is also available. Then reinsert the retaining pin to secure the ball to the platform. 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.

Weigh Safe ball mounts installed in drop and rise positions

The Weigh Safe 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 Weigh Safe ball mount you'll see that you're getting a superior, well-made product. The Weigh Safe'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 Weigh Safe 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 Weigh Safe ball mount 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 2-Ball Mount with Built-In Scale Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Weigh-Safe line of adjustable aluminum ball mounts with built-in tongue weight scale, available in multiple configurations right here at Etrailer.com. Now a very common problem that we have that can sometimes make trailering unsafe is not having a proper load-out on our trailer or not having the appropriate tongue weight on the front. This gives us a really good example of it. We just picked this equipment up from the rental company, kind of tested it out to see how they load their trailer. This is a 9,000 pound combined load and it only has 350 pounds worth of tongue weight. Essentially what that means is that we've got too much weight too far back on the trailer. You can even see it here in the wheel wells with just a little bit of area here and you can see there's a lot more here in the front. That's putting a lot of excess strain and a lot of excess pressure on the tire and the rear axle.

That will cause this axle to wear out prematurely. Also if we don't have the appropriate amount of tongue weight pushing down on the rear of the vehicle it's not going to handle properly. We're not going to have the weight down on those rear tires to help us come to a stop quickly and safely. Another side affect of tongue weight not being heavy enough or not having enough downward pressure on that front end is that we can sometimes have sway behind our trailer. If you've ever seen a camper or a trailer going down the road improperly loaded you'll see it bouncing side to side. It's just not a safe situation. Weigh-Safe's got a great solution for that.

That's going to be our Weigh-Safe ball mount with built-in tongue weight scale. We've got a ball here. These are going to come in 2 or 2-5/16". It's going to press down on the hydraulic scale which is then going to register right here and let us know exactly how much tongue weight we have. As you can see this rental company gave us this trailer exactly how it sits and it's only at 350 pounds. To safely haul this any kind of distance at all we would need to reload this trailer and get appropriate tongue weight up here to the front.

Now the goal that you're looking for with tongue weight is going to be 10 to 15% of the total trailer weight. With this being 9,000 pounds worth of trailer we need to be somewhere between 900 pounds and 1,350 pounds. Now you'll see as we load up our trailer we'll just have somebody to keep on eye on our scale. As soon as it gets within the range that we're looking for, in that 10 to 15% mark, we'll know we've got our trailer loaded properly, we're ready to secure that load we'll head down the road much more safely than what it was before. Here you'll see our trailer properly loaded. You can see we've got about equal gaps with this front and this rear tire. It's going to help extend the life of all the components on our trailer and really going to improve the handling of that truck as we head down the highway. Now another common problem that we often see with trailering is when we have too much tongue weight.

It's going to give us kind of the opposite reaction of what we had before, putting a lot of that stress on this front axle now, going to do unnecessary wear on the tire, also build up a lot of friction in those springs, but where it transfers and where it's going to be apparent the most is when we have too much tongue weight on our trailer and we look at the truck. We're going to have a lot of squat here in the rear end, puts a lot of strain on that rear suspension on those rear tires, and it also draws the front end of the truck up. As it does that we're going to change the angle of our headlights so they're not going to be pointing exactly where we want them. Also it takes some of the weight off those fronts tires so steering and stability are going to be changed a little bit, also braking performance. Another issue we'll have a we had too much tongue weight is the tire wear. The suspension geometry is going to change and the outer edge of those tires is going to wear out much quicker than they should. This one we we're looking at is the 4" compared to the 6" drop that we looked at before, but it's going to tell us we've got approximately a 3,000 pound trailer load here so we want to be somewhere between 300 and 450 pounds of tongue weight. Now we can load up our UTV and know that we're safely going to be with him the right specifications of our ball mount. The shank portion itself here, this is going to be aluminum machined out of one solid piece. We're not going to have to worry about wells or any areas where we might have fatiguing or cracks. The main body of the ball mount itself, or the, actually, area the ball's going to ride in, that's again machined out of one solid piece of aluminum. Each of our pins are going to be constructed out of high-grade aluminum as well as the plate surrounding the lock. Then we've got our lock core. That's constructed out of stainless steel. That's going to keep it working good for a long time to come. We've got our pins here. We just want to slide these out. The nice thing about the pins is they're one unit. We don't have to worry about two different pins trying to get them in, trying to get them out. Makes it much simpler to adjust this up and down, and then you can see right inside there we're going to have the pin that actually holds our ball mount in. Then you'll see right down there there's going to be a plunger. That plunger is designed so when we have our ball in place our ball can push down on that. That's then going to register on the scale for us. The hitch balls are a solid one-piece stainless steel construction. That's going to give us superior corrosion resistance. Also the plunger at the base is made of the same material. You might have a little bit of a concern with the mix of stainless steel and aluminum. Weigh-Safe has thought about that and on the aluminum they've put a galvanic coating on there. That's going to prevent our stainless steel and our aluminum from causing each other to corrode. It's really nice. As you can see they've really put a lot of energy into giving us the highest grade materials that are available, giving us a very strong yet lightweight corrosion-resistant product. That's why they're going to offer you the limited lifetime warranty regardless of where the point of failure might be, which we haven't seen yet but if it does happen send it right back to them. Another great thing, these are made right here in the United States so you know that you're having somebody that takes pride in their work, they're doing a good job to get you something to work that's going to work very effectively. Now regardless of the size in drop or in shank that we decide on, the ball mount's going to come with both the 2" and the 2-5/16" ball mounts. Now if you decide that you need 1-7/8", this is part number WSBL. Now as we go up in size the weight capacities are going to become greater. Now for the 1-7/8" we're going to have a 7,500 pound maximum gross trailer weight capacity whether we're using the 2" shank or the 2-1/2" shank. When we move into the 2" ball that's going to go up to 8,000 pounds on either the 2" or a 2-1/2. Now the only slight difference that we have is going to be on the 2-5/16" ball. It's stamped at 14,500 pounds. That's going to be for use with the 2-1/2" shank. If you go to the 2" shank that capacity's going to be limited to 10,000. Now depending on which size shank you're going to use, if you're using the 2-1/2" you'll see the scale's customized for that. Once it gets up to 2,200 pounds, which is the maximum tongue weight rating of the 2-1/2" design it's going to give you that red area. That way you'll know too much tongue weight, we're exceeding the limit of the ball mount. Same thing for our 2" version here. You can see though it's going to be a little bit lower. That's at the 1,500 pound mark. That's the maximum tongue weight rating for the 2" configuration. We don't want to exceed that and it's nice that it's going to give us a visual cue if we do. Now as we put this together what we're going to do is lineup that oblong hole with our pinhole. We can slide that pin in and through. Now we've got, you can see around the ball, just the slightest bit of a tolerance that's been built in right here. That's going to be sure that that ball has room to move up and down and it won't get bound up inside of there. You can see it's a little bit of wiggle room. That's going to allow that scale to work. We'll side the ball mount portion up and on the shank, pick whatever drop it is that you require, simply slide that in and turn it. That's going to keep everything nice and secure. Now a locking hitch pin that we recommend is part number WS06. This comes with both the locking hitch pin and the dual locking pin assembly. This is going to give you a second dual locking pin assembly but this is the perfect solution for having both of your locks keyed alike so you don't have to search for multiple keys. You're making an investment in safety with these and we don't want them to disappear. Now we're going to get a couple quick measurements for you so you know the distance from the center of our pinholes to the center of our ball. This is going to help ensure that this is going to work for your application. We'll start with the 2" shank model. It's going to have two pinholes. The first one here is going to be about 8-3/8" to the center of our ball. The other is going to be around 9-1/2". Now onto the 2-1/2" version. We're going to have about 8-3/4" from the center of our pinhole to the center of our ball. Regardless of the ball size that you're going to use this will not change. Now when it comes time to adjust our drop or our rise it's a very simple process. You'll just take your included key, placed that in, turn it 90 degrees. At that point you'll see our double pin kit. It's going to come right out. We don't have to wrestle with pulling multiple pins or trying to get multiple clips undone like we have to with most adjustable ball mounts. With the pin set up the way it is, the dual pin and all the options that we have, we'll be able to adjust this incrementally all the way from its highest setting here, which would be just about dead even with the receiver tube all the way down to that 4" drop. Once we get the selection in there that we want that pin's just going to slide back in and we can lock it back up. Now for storage of your Weigh-Safe ball mount if you don't want it in the position that you have it here to where it's out, we can also store this underneath the vehicle. With the 4" drop we'll have to invert the ball or have the ball face down. With the 6, 8, or 10 it can be stored in its upright position but essentially we just bring that around to the back side. Get that raised up. Slide our pin in just like that and re-lock it. That's going to really reduce the chance that we're going to knock our leg on it or bump our shin as we're walking by. That's going to complete our look at the Weigh-Safe line of adjustable aluminum ball mounts with built-in tongue weight scale.

One of the best ball mount I've purchased. Works great with camper and multiple trailer I pull. It's easy to use and the weight gauge is very convenient. Plus the look of it is very nice too. I would say it is well worth the money. 418164

This is the best ball mount I have purchased. Its held up very well and looks brand new even being used all summer long hauling our camper.

This ball mount works great in that it is adjustable for multiple trailer tongue heights, and can set the tongue weight properly. I will no longer need to carry around 3 ball mounts in a box. 385175

- WS10-25

Great product. Can even handle my gooseneck car hauling trailer if I have to get over a tuff area and need to lower the front of the trailer. Do no make any sharp turn or you will damage your vehicle. Can hit on steep inclines so it's better if your truck has at least a 3 inch lift. Great quality and durable. Swapping ball sizes is a breeze. 378552

Wanted a Class V adjustable hitch for my F350. The aluminum Weigh Safe 2-1/2" Hitch is just what I needed for my 2 trailers. Easy to adjust the ball height for each trailer. The 12,500 lb towing capacity is 2x over what I normally tow for a comfortable safety margin. 180176

Looks great! Do you have any issues with the drawbar scraping the ground? How many inches of clearance do you have below it? I have a stock 4x4 F250, with about a 21.5 hitch height, and debating whether to go for the 10 or the 8 . I could use the 10 for a couple of low trailers, but worry about scraping it and weakening it when towing my big trailers that dont need as much . Thanks.
-- comment by: MotoKrome - 10/05/2015

For MotoKrome, I previously owned an F250 and it does not sit as high in the rear, about 3-4 difference. I would suggest going with the 8 . I checked the clearance on a couple of curbs with my F350 and have several inches of clearance. I especially like the tongue weight readout on the hitch.

i looked at a lot of different ball mounts for my F250 trying to find one as heavy duty as the truck with the correct amount of drop and didn't look like a 60 pound steel anval hanging from the rear bumper when I came across the WS10-25 with 14500# towing capability in stylish aluminum construction 10" drop (which is just what I needed for my enclosed motorcycle trailer) 11" rise reversible so that it stores under the bumper out of the way when not in use and The tongue weight gauge built right in I couldn't wait to get it on my truck!! 262421

I use this with on my 2015 Chevy 2500 with a 4 inch lift. I pull a 7x12 dual axle dump trailer, 16 foot enclosed trailer along with some smaller trailers. The ease of adjustment with this hitch is terrific, I like the weight scale on the side especially when I'm hauling heavy loads, gives me an idea how my load is sitting. It's definitely a heavy duty unit, solid aluminum however fairly light, and i like how the double locking pins allow for NO play at all in the ball on the mount slide. Very well made and I would Highly Recommend it. If I remember when I ordered this from trailer it was delivered within a few days. All in all everything went fine from ordering to the hitch itself. 248689

- WS10-25

Great product. This hitch was exactly what I needed. We do a lot of off-roading, and I bring different machines depending on what type of trip we are taking. Being able to dial in my tongue weight when I run different set ups on my trailer is worth its weight in gold. It is HEAVY DUTY, quality is top notch, and it looks great. Everyone notices it, and asks about it. Now that I've used for a year, I don't know that I could go back to using a hitch without a scale in it. It is that useful. 344331

- WS10-25

Using this hitch on a Ram 2500 to pull a 22' closed trailer. Works extremely well- easy to adjust ball size and height. Like the gauge as it gives an indication of tongue weight. Caution - be absolutely positive you have locked the pin holding the ball unit to hitch bar. If not locked, pin will back out, ball assembly drops, and you will lose trailer. I regularly spray pin locking mechanism with lubricant to wash out road grit, sand, etc. 338264

- WS10-25

I really like this hitch so far. It is really easy to adjust the height and change the ball size. Being all aluminum makes it easy to handle too. The built in scales is a nice feature to see how much tongue weight is on your truck. With all the different adjustments there's more slop then I would've liked but dosent seem to affect towing in any way. I would definitely recommend this hitch to anyone. 320344

- WS10-25

I have owned this product for over a year now and it has performed perfectly. It is lighter and much easier to use than my last adjustable hitch. I am a very satisfied customer. 334897

- WS10-25

After one 500 mile trip I took the hitch off and will never use it again. It did not fit snug enough on my receiver hitch and with an 8 inch drop it caused terrible trailer sway. I would love to return it if you could help for any refund you could offer. Thank you for the follow up, your customer has been great. 543826

- WS10-25

I purchased the heavy duty (2 1/2") Weigh Safe drop hitch from etrailer.com to pull my new enclosed 16' dual axle cargo/toy trailer and whatever else I need to give tow too. The confidence that my trailer load is distributed correctly and secure is priceless. The appearance and functionality when mounted on my 2015 Ford F250 King Ranch is great due to the super fit and finish. Someone told me that it looked expensive, my reply: as it should, mounted on a new truck. LOL!. I really like how the ball mount can be positioned under the truck and not be a hazard when not in-use. With the 10" adjustable drop, probably the last hitch I will need.. :-) 179871

- WS10-25

Ordered the Weigh Safe drop ball mount WS10-25. Product I received looks used. The Weigh Safe sticker was missing and the hitch had gouge marks on the shaft and ball mount. This was probably a return item that was shipped to me. I'm very disappointed. For $309 I expect a new product, not a returned restock or used item in poor quality. First time buying at etrailer. Most likely my last. 419083

David, I just checked your order notes and see that Christina arranged to have another ball mount shipped to you. I hope that you will continue to use etrailer.com in the future.

Great hitch. Really needed the full adjustable height to handle the different trailers I own. But I did not want something hanging down below the hitch like you get with a flip over set up that would impact my ability to back up my steep drive if in the lowest position. This hitch was perfect. Plus the integrated locking pins allows me to keep it on all the time without extra locking devices. 731000

Absolutely a piece of art! Do not hesitate to purchase WS10-25! Beautiful, functional and worth the $! 720257

I also have a WS 8 inch drop. I ordered the WS10-25 to fit in my trucks 2.5inch inch for bigger loads and larger weight towing capability. I have not used my WS10-25 yet as I just got it in the mail, but I have used my WS 8 Inch Drop and absolutely love it. So easy to use and I can now use just one hitch for all my needs in towing and do not have to have multiple hitches as the WS has both the 2 and 2 5/16 ball and they are very easy to swap out. I would recommend the WS hitch to anyone. 655718

This means that you need an adjustable ball mount with a drop of about 9-1/2 inches for your trailer to ride level. I do have a few options for you to choose from when it comes to an aluminum ball mount with a 2 inch and a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball that are stainless steel. The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS10-25...

  • How to Choose Correct Ball Mount for 2017 Ram 2500
    The amount of drop you need on a ball mount with your 2017 Ram 2500 will depend on the height of the trailer you plan on towing. In order to choose the correct ball mount for your truck, you will need to take two measurements. First, with your Ram parked on level ground, take a measurement from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver. Then with your trailer on level ground, measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. You will simply need a ball mount that features a drop...

  • Recommendation for 10 Inch Drop Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Receiver on a 2013 Dodge Ram 2500 Pickup
    I have a few solutions for your ball mount needs. I recommend the Weight Safe # WS10-25, is a 2-Ball ball mount that has a 10 inch drop and an 11 inch rise. What is really neat about this product is that it comes with a built-in scale and two common coupler size balls (2 inch and 2-5/16 inches). If you happen to need a 1-7/8 inches ball # WSB-L is sold separately. I've linked all the ball mounts with the 10 inch drop for your 2-1/2 receiver and a video of the WS10-25 for your convenience...

  • Concern with Wear of Aluminum Ball Mount in Steel Hitch Receiver
    You don't have to worry about wear of the aluminum shank on the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount with Built-In Scale # WS10-25. Although the steel receiver tube material of your hitch is harder than aluminum, because the weigh safe is milled from solid billet aluminum - meaning it is free of microscopic stress fractures - it is extremely strong and will stand up just fine to use in your hitch. If you care to lock the ball mount to your hitch you can use lock # e98881.

You are in luck, we offer a 1 7/8" ball that can be used with your Weigh Safe ball mount.

  • Will Aluminum Ball Mount and Steel Hitch Receiver Cause Galvanic Corrosion
    Any time you mix two metals like this there theoretically is the risk of galvanic corrosion over time. With that being said, we're talking about an extremely long process, one that will likely outlast the lifetime of your truck or trailer before it would have the potential to actually cause any negative effects. The inside of your hitch receiver also almost certainly has a pretty durable powder coat. The process of galvanic corrosion wouldn't even begin until this coating is worn off...

  • 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...

This ball mount has a 10k capacity and can do a similar amount of drop at 9-1/2 inches.

  • Recommendation for Choosing Adjustable Ball Mount for 2017 Chevy Silverado
    When determining the rise or drop needed for a ball mount, there are two measurements you will want to take. Starting with your 2017 Chevy Silverado, you will want to take a measurement from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver when the truck is on level ground. Then on your trailer, you will measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. If the hitch height on your truck is higher, you will need a ball mount with a rise, if the coupler measurement is higher, you...

  • Tailgate on 2014 Ram 3500 Hits A-Frame Trailer Jack when Using Weigh Safe Ball Mount
    While we do provide some length measurements on the product pages for ball mounts such as # WS10-25 it can still be hard to determine where the trailer will be when using the product until you actually start using it. So I understand where you're coming from. One sort of outside the box possible solution is to use a 5th wheel tailgate in place of the regular tailgate on your 2014 Ram 3500 such as # VGD-10-100. It has a large cut out in the top center of the tailgate which would clear...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500 with 3 inch Lift
    If you went with an adjustable ball mount that had about 8 inches of drop you'd have your bases covered for the most part. Some trailers are as low as 17 inches and some around 20. But it really does just depend on what you plan to tow. The Weigh Safe Ball Mount part # WS10-25 would work if you had a 2-1/2 inch hitch as it has a 10 inch drop, but if you have a 2 inch hitch instead you'd want the # WS8-2 most likely as it instead has a drop of 8 inches and fits a 2 inch hitch.

  • 10 Inch Drop Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    Some adjustable ball mounts will have a bit of play in them which is the movement you described, but the # WS10-25 that you referenced would fit tight to your hitch and would not have much play at all at the ball mount platform. All of our the customer reviews on this ball mount were positive with no mention of play or noise.

  • Is Scale of Weight Safe Adjustable Ball Mount with Built In Scale Durable
    When the scale of the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale # WS10-25 was designed they had the type of bumps and changes in load like you mentioned in mind and made it heavy duty enough to handle what you described. As long as you are under the weight capacity of this ball mount (2,200 lbs tongue weight) you would not need to worry about any bumps or rough road conditions damaging the scale.

  • Weight Safe Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 2018 Ram 2500 4x4 Off Road Edition
    I'd go with the 10 inch drop version of the Weigh Safe part # WS10-25 that you referenced. It's pretty common to see trailer coupler heights around 15 inches and this would get you a drop right at that height. It's possible you wouldn't ever need that much drop but if you are buying an adjustable ball mount to basically cover all possibilities you may as well get one you know is going to work for everything.

    I spoke with my contact at Weigh Safe regarding the process of removing the seized lock from your existing Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS6-2.

A center punch (or sturdy screwdriver), hammer, and a table vice to make things easier is all that you should need.

  • Availability of Weigh Safe Ball Mount w/ Built In Tongue Weight Scale for Weight Distribution System
    A ball mount like the Weigh Safe wouldn't work for a weight distribution system, as it's not designed for that purpose. Weigh Safe doesn't offer a shank for a weight distributing system, but if you were using a w/d system, you could use a tongue weight scale like part # 5780 to determine your trailer tongue weight. The scale is very easy to use, as you'll see in the video I've linked for you.
