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.

This hitch system is the most outstanding example of an object designed to perform a basic utilitarian function made into a work of art that I have ever seen. It deserves a place in the Smithsonian. Plus it works as designed. I am pleased to own this hitch. 529853

Just received this today. Haven't used it yet. Quite disappointed that the receiver has several scratches straight out of the box given the price paid and the highly polished finish. Someone should have noticed the scratches before packing it for shipment. 503616

Use it on a 6 cylinder Tacoma with fairly low tongue rating to pull a 5x8 single axle dump trailer. Great design, easy to use. Takes the guess work out of balancing your load. You have to give the scale a few seconds before reading because it is hydraulic. Not cheap but certainly worth the money. 656427

by:

Solid hitch easy to use. Kind of disappointed with the way the lock mechanism is. As it stands anyone with an Allen wrench pack can un screw the rods and remove the scaled ball mount. They did loctite the set screws and attempt to drill them out so a wrench won't fit in but even then an easy out does the job. 663808

The calibration of the "tongue weight scale" reflects a few hundred pounds...when nothing is attached to the hitch. I can live with this (or account for this). Otherwise, it is a beautiful unit with all the flexibility I wanted. I would still order it. 418591

Works as advertised. Had an issue with the product. It was covered. Weighsafe made a quick painless warranty replacement, resulting in no downtime for me. 620385

Best receiver and ball assembly on the market! The built-in scale told me immediately that my trailer's tongue weight was fine and not overloaded as I had previously thought. Masterfully built and exacting as if it were for the aircraft industry. Forget what it costs and buy it. You won't be disappointed. 237340

This is a very good product I have no complaints. My daughter ‘s RV Tongue weight is close to 1000 pounds and we thought it was about 600 at the most. It is also well terminated and looks cool on my truck. Attached a pictute 512483

Until you see this hitch in person, it's hard to appreciate the high quality look and feel. It looks like it was made for an airplane, forged aluminum, well engineered. I used mine just a few days ago to tow my new tilt trailer home. The scale only showed about 100# or so but the trailer was empty. It was easy to adjust for the correct height and that feature will be handy when we get a different horse trailer. I also bought the locking hitch pin. Wish I had know to get them keyed alike but not a big deal. Tim was a big help in selecting this hitch and locking pin. 617164

by:

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

Love this hitch. Watching the video on the etrailer site is what sold me on the product and it’s exactly the way it was presented. We have 2 trucks of different heights and 3 trailers that use 2” and 2 5/16” balls. Changing out the different hitch balls takes about 30 seconds... No vise needed, no huge wrenches to torque the nut down. I also purchased the available locking receiver pin, keyed the same as the adjustable hitch pin lock.. I also am very happy to know exactly what my trailer tongue weight is. Easy to use, lightweight, multipurpose, and looks pretty cool, too. 556850



- WS4-2
by:

This product does not disappoint. I just received it today. Fit and finish are superior even to my strict standards. One thing that is different about the unit compared to the published pictures is that the tang that inserts into the receiver is squared off as opposed to angular as shown in the pictures. I prefer this squared look/style much more. I am very anxious/excited to use this hitch. Only time will tell how the scale function will last. Based on the quality machining and fitment, I am betting it will last a long time. AMERICAN MADE!!!! 216779

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

This is a great setup and takes all the guess work out of receiver weight. I load my car trailer so much faster now due to not having to guess how far up or back to keep receiver weight correct.

Does a great job helping leveling my trailer out by understanding the weight on the truck. Only issue is this unit has more slack than a traditional hitch set up. There is more movement in the connection to the truck so taking off from stops and movement on the road is noticeable. 595596

This is a awesome product, beautifully manufactured, very adjustable with either a drop or rise in height, and simple to set up. The tongue weight scale is definitely a added bonus, taking the guesswork out of loading. The unit is a little pricey but worth the peace of mind in security and accuracy. I do wish, however, that it included the hitch pin as part of the unit, especially in view of the price. All in all, though, it is a superb unit. For me, it will see about 6-10,000 road miles a year. 588949

Normally, I use a weight distribution hitch when towing a horse trailer with my horse in it. However, I purchased this product to make it easier to move the empty trailer around AND to periodically check the tongue weight of the trailer, as I add or move weight inside the trailer, which is my favorite feature. The Weigh Safe hitch has certainly proven to be sturdy and very easy to use. 561122

I researched the internet for a versatile (yet reasonably-priced) hitch for my Sierra HD. All searches led back to this Weigh Safe hitch on etrailer.com. The hitch is premium quality with excellent machined surfaces, and the built in scale really helps to balance the load for the safest possible tow. I love the fact that I can invert the ball and attach it on the back side of the hitch to eliminate those "shin-busters" when not in use. I also splurged on the locking hitch pin set to ensure that no one else can borrow my hitch, and I love that both locks are keyed the same to eliminate one extra key on my keychain. I highly recommend the set to anyone who wants a top quality hitch, and I fully recommend that they purchase from etrailer.com! 557341


Comments

Update: It has been one year since purchasing, and I am still completely satisfied with this product. As expected, the aluminum construction has weathered well. I keep the hitch inverted facing the front of the truck when not in use, so there are times when I need to squirt a bit of WD40 into the lock to clean out the debris, but I have had no issues with any of the materials andor components. The dust cover on the locking pin definitely keeps the lock free of debris. I highly recommend both products and etrailer.com. You cannot go wrong with either.

I recently had to shop for a new trailer ball and mount and found etrailer to be extremely informative and helpful in finding the best options and variety of items that worked for my situation. They shipped the product quickly and it arrived with helpful instructions. It is extremely high quality and I look forward to using it to pull our new Airstream 27 foot trailer with it. The investment in our trailer was substantial and I wanted to find a high quality ball and mount to protect our investment. etrailer had a number of high quality options and we will use them again in the future. 546294

Amazing hitch! Easy directions, looks good and most importantly makes you feel secure about what you are trailing. The multiple heights make it convienent from small SUV to larger pick ups. 524525

I've had this hitch a year and it's still working great. It's easy to adjust the ball height and having the scale gives me peace of mind knowing that I haven't exceeded the tongue weight of my trailer. 504916

Over the years I have had many hitches. If this hitch was around when I bought the first one, I would have bought this hitch and been done. I probably would have saved money over the years trying to find the perfect hitch. This is a beautifully machined part, right down to the chamfer on each pin hole and size/weight engraved into the top of the hitch balls. Very high quality. Almost a piece of art. 478165

Product was shipped very quickly and well packaged. Adjustable hitch appears to be great quality alumninum and stainless steel ball. All the pieces fit nicely together and the lock mechanism works well. I will try out the built in scale soon and compare its readings to an electronic scale. This hitch will allow me to adjust according to weight I'm carrying in my truck and allow me to adjust the position of the load in my camper so tongue weight is between 10-15% GTW. 470404

Thank you for inquiring about the Weigh Safe Mount. I purchased it for my son who had a Dodge Ram 1/2 ton pick-up and was doing a lot of towing. The truck has since performed at the old Dodge level and he sold the truck back to Dodge. He has not used the trailer mount in the last two months. However, when he did utilize the mount, he was extremely pleased with the knowledge of the tongue weight information. He stated that it allowed him to make fewer haulage trips and the trips were made much safer with the knowledge readily at hand.

I love this thing! Best hitch I have ever owned. The adjust ability is great, I love being able to adjust the angle of my trailer so I can get the tongue weight just right. It still works great after towing MANY trailers with it over the past year. The quality is impeccable. I even converted some of my friends to them. Yes it is expensive, but you get what you pay for. A high quality, long lasting, made in the USA product. I Highly recommend this hitch. I have had not one single problem with it and it has been put through the wringer! 448573

I have purchased 3 of these ws4-2 and I have had nothing but good come from it. I live on a island and tow my boat in and out the water. It is nice that it is aluminum so it will always look great, love the scale and the way it locks. This is a really great hitch. 377638

Seems quite well made, great machining, everything fits perfectly. Tongue weight, or lack of it, is a huge safety issue. This helps a lot. 358231

For years I have been worried I am overloading my trailer hitch. I am kind of squeaky, so I just ignored the issue. Finally I got a new 1/2 ton and knew I had to do something so, Tongue weight Scale. The thing works great. I was able to move tractor around to find the best and safest place to lock my Kubota down. I highly recommend this product, works great and provides peace of mind. 353542
