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 - WS4-25 Review

Today we're going to review part number WS4-25. This is the Way Safe 2 Ball Mount with the built-in tongue weight scale, designed for a 2 & a half inch hitch receiver. Has a maximum 4 inch drop, maximum 5 inch rise and a maximum 12,500 pound weight capacity. Now this ball mount, with the included hitch balls, will let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle, this shank right here will slide into a two and a half inch hitch receiver. And the ball provides a connection point for the trailer coupler. If you notice on the ball mount platform, the tongue weight scale is built in, helps you balance your trailer, promote safe towing and let you know if your load need to be adjusted before you tow. It's a very simple operation this will automatically provide a measurement every time you couple your trailer to the ball.

It's a efficient, hassle-free, eliminates the need for separate scales or commercial scales. Now this ball mount also has a stow able design which lets you store ball in the mounting platform underneath the vehicle out of the way so no body runs into it. And the way you do that is just take your keys, turning 90 degrees to unlock it, slide out your duel locking pins, just like that. Then remove your ball platform from the shank, and since this one is a low drop, there wouldn't be room to do with the ball pointing up, so what you want to do turn it over and just match the holes up that way then, put your dual locking pin back in, and then this way the ball are platform would be stored underneath the vehicle out of the way. Now this does an adjustable height, let's turn it back over, and you can see all the many holes right here. This will let you tow a trailers with different heights, with the same vehicle.

Basically you just slide this ball platform up or down the shank, secure in place where you need it with these duel locking pins. Now it does come with two keys to lock it. Now it also comes with 2 different sized hitch ball and this will let you go trailers with different coupler sizes. And to switch the ball, What you'll do is now you have a 2 and 5 16th diameter pitch ball in there. So right here if you look in here there's an indentation is a ring in there.

What you want to do is pull that ring and then it will pull the pin out with that out, you'll be able to remove the pitch ball and replace it if you want to go to the two inch, just line your slot up with the whole where the pin goes. Push it all the way in, make sure the ring is in that indentation, so you'll be able to slide it on the shank, and then you change it over to a 2 inch. Now the shank in the ball platform itself, is rust proof aluminum. Offers superior strength and durability. The hitch balls, they are stainless steel hitch balls, which are corrosion resistant. Now when you install the shank into your receiver hitch pin clip or the hitch lock that you would use to put in place, they are sold separately on our website.

They are usually listed on this product page as related product. Or if you already have a hitch pin or lock, you can use that. This part is made in the USA. Again the application is for two and a half inch by 2 & a half inch trailer hitch receivers, a maximum gross towing weight capacity of a 12500 pounds. And the the tongue weight capacity of 1500 pounds. I do want to give you a few measurements. The first one we'll do is measure from the center of a hitch pin hole to the center of a hitch ball, so I'm just going to hold that up here, so center of the hitch pin hole, eight and three-quarter inches. Again the two size hitch balls that come with, they're stainless steel, two and five sixteenths timer in 2 inch diameter. Now maximum drop we're going to give you the measurement of that. Going to go ahead and put this on the lowest, now that's your maximum drop, and you'll measure from the top of the shank, top of the ball platform, I'm just going to put a ruler across, right at 4 inches for maximum drop. And then to get maximum rise, we'll just unlock it turn it around, push it in 90 degrees, pull the rock in pins 90 degreess, we'll turn the shank over and insert it in this way. And then what you're going to want to do is line it up. There be a Maximum Rise measure from the top of the shank, top of the platform, and we'll put a ruler up there and, I'll be right at 5 inches for Maximum Rise. And if you notice the multiple holes right here, they're center to center an inch apart, so you have incremental height adjustment of one should you go up or down. Now on the scale, the tongue weight scale, it goes up to 1500 pounds and then it goes red so if you ever go over 1500 into the red, you don't want to tow anymore. You want to stay 1500 or below and below fifteen hundred, and you'll see many different marks there and in each mark is in a 200 pound increments, so it gives you an idea of what your, once you hook your trailer coupler to the ball, and it puts your weight on their, you'll be able to read what tongue weight capacity is. Now this does come with a limited lifetime warranty, but that should do it for the review on part number WS4-25, the Way Safe 2 Ball Mount with the built-in tongue weight scale, designed for a 2 & a half inch hitch receiver, 4 inch drop maximum, 5 inch rise maximum, and a maximum 12,500 pound weight capacity. .

I would like to Thank You for the very prompt delivery of my order which I received October 12. I placed my order online on October 9th, 2017. I am very pleased to see such a quick delivery, excellent service. I came across your product by luck I might add, while searching for hitches. I am the owner of BasinBayou, LLC. We are a catering/Food Truck company in Texas. We are in the process of having a custom built Food Trailer fully equipped. I wanted a hitch that I knew would handle the load. Perhaps a bit of overkill some might say, however I believe in quality over any price for long term usage. The craftsmanship is absolutely a thing of beauty. We are due to pickup our new trailer by the end of this month from the manufacturer in Florida. I will keep you posted and send pictures of the hookup with our new trailer. Please feel free to use this as a review for a compliment of your excellent service. 459688

This is the nicest hitch I have ever owned. I tow a boat and cargo trailer with about 4" difference in hitch heights. Prior to this hitch I had to select a compromised height that wasn't right for either of my trailers; now I can quickly and easily adjust for the correct hitch height on each. I have been concerned that I had my tongue weight correct and I now can confirm the tongue weight and be confident I have both trailers loaded correctly. I did my homework prior to buying this hitch so I knew this hitch was quality, but I was pleasantly surprised at just how well the parts are machined. The finish is excellent. One of the big selling points was the ball assembly locked to the rest of the hitch. I'll never have a ball mount assembly from another manufacturer. 254503

If there was an option for 4.5 I would use that. I really like the hitch. The hitch balls and aluminum hitch are very well made and almost a work of art. It functions very well as a hitch and I have no corrosion or signs of deterioration after a year of pretty hard use. My only two complaints are: 1. The scale doesn't work well for lighter trailers because there has to be about 300 pounds of tongue weight before the thing starts to register. So if you want to make sure you have 10% tonge weight on a utility or jetski trailer you are out of luck. 2. I have to clean out the area where the ball sits on the scale or it quits working. Not a big deal, but kind of messy. Except for those two things, I really love the hitch. 340544

This is one beautiful product and confident it will last my lifetime and more. One issue came up after opening the package and the scale was not color coded as depicted on your site. Called eTrailer and spoke with Patrick. This gentleman took up my cause and got me answers as to why. Very professional and so concerned to satisfy the customer. The factory in Utah is sending out a replacement at no charge immediately. I am still giving the product and service a 5 star because of the way Patrick and Lindsay at the factory handled my issue. My hats off to both of these representatives of eTrailer and Weigh Safe Manufacturing. 326650

Easily one of the prettiest ball mounts I've ever had. This kit included a locking dual pin, which made the purchase of the separate locking dual pin an unnecessary expense, so I guess I now have a spare, but otherwise everything was as advertised. I was hoping that I could flip the ball mount and reverse it under the receiver, and I can, but only in the lowest set of holes. The low profile socket head fastener that goes into the piston assembly for the gauge contacts the reinforcing ring on the receiver hitch just before the 5/8" pin can be installed...I may relieve the reinforcing ring slightly (less than 1/32") to gain the 1" of ground clearance in this configuration when not towing. 410993

Out of the box it’s quite an art piece feels very strong and capible, it’s weight and material had me nervous at first but after putting it to the test on some of the nations worst roads with a very loaded trailer I wouldn’t hesitate to recomend to a friend, I did have a minor issue with mine right out of the box and etrailer.com addressed my every concern almost immediately got me to right people at weigh safe they have a very good customer service and back their product and warranty. 467658

I actually didn’t use this for a year, for every time I used it I had to pay postage to send it off because of a faulty gauge, the company eventually recalled the gauge but I haven’t used it since the new gauge was installed.

Great hitch. Have three balls for three most common sizes. Hitch is easy and adjustable so trailers are actually towing at correct tongue height. 463212

Best hitch Ive owned. Works great and easy to adjust height. One hitch versus the three I used to carry and works for all trailers. Tongue height is always right and hence tow is smooth.

The scale made it easy to balance the load for the long drive. I am greeting ready to utilized it again on a regular bases... I will update again in a year of two. 364205

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


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

Great looking hitch. Way too much slop in my opinion. Don't like the set screws holding the lock and pins in either definitely needs to be revised. 510765

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


Great product. Excellent service. It's nice to be able to adjust the height. I see so many rigs too high or too low. This ball mount makes it easy to get it right. I would recommend this ball mount to anyone. 337168

The ball mount is great. No problems at all and it’s nice knowing how much weight is on the tongue of the trailer. Thanks for the follow up

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

  • Ball Mount with 4 Inch Rise for a 2014 Ram 3500 with 2-1/2 Inch Receiver and 16,500 Pound Boat
  • the best ball mount option for the 2-1/2 inch receiver on your 2014 Ram 3500 and the 16,500 pound boat plus the trailer is going to be # AMSCV-6. This is a cushioned ball mount rated for 18,000 pounds. It offers 4-3/4 inches of rise. I have included a link to a video review of this ball mount for you. This ball mount has a ball hole diameter of 1-1/4 inches. If you need a 2-5/16 inch ball I recommend # C40008 which is rated for 20,000 pounds.

  • Availability of Trailer Tongue Weight Scale with 1000 lb Capacity
  • The # 5780 with its 2000 lb capacity is the only tongue weight scale we offer, however we do carry the Weigh Safe adjustable ball mounts that feature an integrated tongue weight scale. They're available in various different rises and drops, starting with the # WS4-25 which offers a 14.5K capacity and a maximum 4 inch drop to a 5 inch rise. The ball mount provides a 2 and a 2-5/16 inch trailer ball. There are also available ball mounts that offer a larger rise/drop as you can see by clicking...

  • Troubleshooting Weigh Safe -2 Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch with Increase Movement At Hitch Ball
  • The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2-1/2" Hitch - 4" Drop, 5" Rise - 14.5K # WS4-25 should not have a lot of play in the ball. Make sure the pin that holds the ball in place is working properly and the hitch ball is the correct size for the trailer and weight you are pulling. You should be using the 2-5/16 inch ball for that 10-12,000 lb trailer. A little bit of play is normal, but increasing amounts of play is a problem and may require replacement parts. You may...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 11,000 Pound Travel Trailer
  • Verifying your trailer's loaded tongue weight is a great idea, but you will not be able to use the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS4-25 with a weight distribution system. Weight distribution systems will require a specialized shank and will not attach directly to a ball mount like the Weigh Safe product. To check the loaded tongue weight of your trailer, I recommend using a scale like the Sherline # 5780. The most important factor when choosing a weight distribution system is the total...

  • How to Pick Out Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch Hitch for Ground Clearance
  • When we installed the Curt hitch # C15810 on a similar 2007 Ford F-250 to your 2006 Ford F-350 we found that from the top of the hitch opening down to the ground measured 20 inches. The Weigh Safe Ball Mount part # WS10-25 is a great ball mount but it would hang down 13 inches from the top of your hitch opening putting it about 7 inches off the ground. A better option for ground clearance would be the same ball mount but with less drop part # WS6-25 as this would sit 4 inch taller....

  • Heavy-Duty Tow Package for a 2009 Chevrolet Express 1500
  • There will be no wiring differences between the 2WD and AWD models of the 2009 Chevrolet Express 1500 in regards to trailer or brake control wiring. The Curt Class IV Trailer Hitch, # 14090, is an excellent choice for your van. We have an installation video of this hitch on a 2008 model that I attached for you if you plan to complete the installation yourself. The installation will be the same on your Express. For trailer wiring, you will need the following kits: Tow Ready T-One...

  • Measuring a Trailer for a Ball Mount with Correct Drop or Rise
  • You want the trailer to be at the exact height it is when towing so it's best to measure with it loaded. You also want to make sure that you're measuring to the bottom of the trailer's coupler and that the trailer is parked on level ground and is as level as possible. Also, make sure your vehicle is parked on level ground and measure to the top of the inside of the receiver hitch. The difference of the two measurements is the rise or drop you need. If the vehicle is higher than the...
