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 Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - WS10-3 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Weigh Safe Adjustable Two Ball Mount with the built in tongue weight scale for a three inch hitch. It has a 10 inch drop, a 10 inch rise, and a 21,000 pound weight capacity. This is an adjustable ball mount. It has these included hitch balls that will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank here is what will slide into your three inch hitch receiver opening, and the balls are what will provide the connection points for your trailer coupler. The Weigh Safe Ball Mount has this easy to use built in scale right here that will measure your trailer's tongue weight every time you tow. If the scale indicates your tongue weight is too low or too high, you can adjust it before you head out, so that you can complete your trip with the piece of mind knowing that your setup is safe. Weigh Safe is the only ball mount with this built in scale to measure the tongue weight.

Then you might ask yourself why knowing your tongue weight is so important. Well, too much tongue weight can affect your driving maneuverability. Too little, and your trailer might fishtail, swing into other lanes, or might just come off the ball. Tongue weight is typically 10 to 15 percent of your gross trailer weight. To give you an example, a 10,000 pound trailer should have a tongue weight of about 1000 to 1500 pounds. You can adjust the tongue weight of your trailer by removing or adding cargo, or just even redistributing the load on the trailer. The Weigh Safe scale right here in linear, rated up to 2200 pounds.

It has marks on it on the gage that are in 100 pound increments. Measuring your tongue weight is as easy as coupling your trailer to this ball mount. You simply hook your trailer to the Weigh Safe Ball Mount just as you would any other ball mount. The weight of the trailer will push down on this hitch ball, which in turn will push down on an internal hydraulic piston that sits in this mount right here on the inside. That piston sits on a bed of oil, so when the piston drops into the oil, the pressure reading is sent out to the scale to give you your tongue weight.

As you can see, it is an adjustable height, so it will let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. A ball mount platform will slide up or down the shank and secure in place with the included dual locking pins, as opposed to some adjustable ball mounts that use the individual pins and clips. That can get to be a hassle. Just to show you, here's the two keys that are included. Just put it in there. Turn to unlock it, and then you just slide both pins out at the same time.

As simple as that. Then you can slide your ball mount all the way up to where you need it. A nice thing about it is, you don't even need the key and the dual pins, because when you get to wherever you want it, just line it up with the hole, push it in, and it will lock automatically. No need to use the key, and then you're all ready to go. The Weigh Safe Ball Mount can be used in either the drop position or the rise position to match the height of your trailer. What I'm going to do is remove that again. This would be your maximum drop position. A maximum drop on this is going to be 10 inches. If we put a ruler on it from the top here to the top here, it's 10 inches. The maximum rise if we flip it over, if you flip the shank all the way over and you put it all the way up at the top here, it will be the same way. You can see right at 10 inches. That would be your maximum 10 inches, max rise or drop. The adjustment is incremental heights of one inch from center to center. I do want to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball, just to give you that measurement. We're going to raise this up, and we're going to measure from the center here to the center of the hitch ball. If we take our ruler and go center to the hitch ball it's going to be right at eight and three-quarter inches. If you notice, it does come with the two different size hitch balls. That will let you tow trailers with different coupler sizes. This one, I have the two inch in there. That's stamp 8000 pound capacity. The two and five-sixteenths it comes with is 21,000 pound capacity. To switch the ball, it's pretty simple to do. Let me show you how to do that. You'll just notice right in here there's a little retaining pin that holds the ball in place. You just grab the ring, pull the retaining pin out, and you can remove the ball just like that. If you want to put the larger ball in, just line the hole up with the hole in the mount platform. Take your retaining pin, push it all the way through, and you're all ready to go. Simple to switch it, just like that. The balls themselves are stainless steel, so they are corrosion resistant. The hitch shank and the mounting platform, they are both made of a 60 61 T6 aluminum. That's used in aircraft construction, so it will offer superior strength and durability. Again, the application for this is three inch by three inch trailer hitch receivers. Gross towing weight capacity, again it depends on the ball you use. If you use the two inch, it's 8000 pounds. If you use the two and five-sixteenths, and it's stamped on the top, it's 21,000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight capacity is 2200 pounds. This part is made in the USA. That should do it for the review on the Weigh Safe Adjustable Two Ball Mount with the built in tongue weight scale for a three inch hitch. 10 inch drop, 10 inch rise, and a 21,000 pound weight capacity.

This is my second purchase of the Weigh Safe hitch. I had to buy a smaller one because I traded trucks and the 3" shaft was too large for the new truck's receiver. The first one I had was used around 3 years and I was 100% satisfied with it so it was an easy decision for this purchase. 679829

Review from a similar Weigh Safe Aluminum Tongue Weight Scale in Ball Mounts


Weigh Safe ball mount works great. No complaints about the product. My only complaint is that the item received was evidently a returned item. It was not packages as well as I’m sure it was from the factory. Due to poor packaging the finish of the unit was dull and marked up from sliding around in the card board box. The previous owner wrote in the paperwork of the unit the date they originally purchased it. Was several months prior to me purchasing it. Didn’t appear to be used. Buffing wheel cleaned it up nicely. 459934

This works great. This is when I first got it. I am only polling my trailer with one pallet of concrete. The total weight of the trailer plus load was 4,600 lbs. It was easy to see and set my tung weight. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to know there tung weight, but you don't want the hassle of using scales. 400547

  • How Do You Know If You Need Sway Control on a Trailer
    Unfortunately, there really isn't any way to predict whether or not you are going to experience trailer sway. This is all going to depend on how the trailer is loaded and it's position in relation to the tow vehicle. It really doesn't have much to do with the tow vehicle at all. I might also add that a weight distribution system is not required so you can always use the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount part # WS10-3 though it does not have an anti-sway control features. If you do begin to experience...

  • What Towing Components Need to Be Replaced When Involved in an Accident?
    Because there is really no way to test the hitch, it is recommended to replace the hitch, the ball mount, and any other components involved in an accident. No company will want to take the liability of no visible damage, so I recommend replacing all of the components including the hitch, ball mount, hitch ball, and even hitch pins. I also recommend testing your wiring for proper function using a circuit tester like # PTW2993.
