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 - WS6-2 Review

Today we're going to review part number WS6-2. This is the way safe 2-ball mount with the built-in tongue weight scale designed for a 2-inch hitch. It gives a 6-inch drop or a 7-inch rise and has a 10,000 pound weight capacity. Now this ball mount with the included hitch ball will let you hook your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank right here will slide into your hitch receiver. The ball provides a connection point for your trailer coupler.

It's nice here on the side of the platform. It's a tongue weight scale that's built in. This will help you balance your trailer out, promotes safe towing because it let's you know if your load needs to be adjusted even before you tow. It's a very simple operation. It automatically provides a measurement every time you couple your trailer to your ball mount.

It's very efficient, hassle free. Eliminates the need for separate or commercial scales. This also offers a stowable design. You can take this ball mount, unlock it with the pins, swing it back under here and store it underneath the vehicle. Basically this will keep the ball mount from sticking out, keeps it stored underneath when you're not towing with it. Now the adjustable height. You see all these holes here so you can slide it up or down, lets you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle.

The slide ball mount goes up and down the shank, secures in place with the included dual locking pins. Now it does include the 2 keys that you unlock the pins with and includes the 2-inch hitch ball. I already have a 2 and 5/16s install on the ball mount. Now the 2 different size hitch balls, that'll let you tow trailers with different coupler sizes and again I'm gonna show you have to switch the balls out. It's pretty simple to do. This is all made of rust-proof aluminum shank and mounting platform.

Gives superior strength and durability. The hitch balls are stainless steel hitch balls which are corrosion resistant. Now a hitch pin and clip that's needed to attach it to your hitch receiver, those are sold separately or you can use the ones you already have. This part is made in the USA. Now the application for this again is 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. Gross towing weight capacity of this is 10,000 pounds. The tongue weight capacity, and the scale goes up to that high, is 1500 pounds. Give you a few measurements. I'm gonna give you the measurements of the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball. So to do that, I'm gonna hold a ruler on the center of the ball and then the hitch pin hole closest to the ball center to center, turn this around, it's gonna be right at 8 and 1/2 inches. And then the measurement from the pin hole farthest from the ball center to center is 9 and 3/4 inches. Now the maximum drop, I have this platform in the maximum drop. That'll be measured from the top of the ball platform to the top of the shank here. So again if we just hold a ruler on it and we measure up, give you that 6 inches maximum drop. And the rise, now of course what we'll do is go ahead and, I'm going remove this just to put it in the right position. So if you want to change this and use it in the rise position. So that would be the maximum rise. You measure from the top of the shank here to the top of the ball platform. I hold the ruler right there and that would give you 7 inch maximum drop. Now each hole here center to center is an inch height adjustment so you can go up as much as you want an inch each time from center to center of the height adjustment holes. On the scale, it goes up to 1500 pounds and each notch on it is 100-pound increments. It does come with a limited lifetime warranty. So now what I'm gonna show you again is to remove, we've got this at the rise position and we want to put it into the drop position. So what you do is you take your key, it's a tubular key, and it's in the lock position now so the pins aren't coming out. So you put your key in, you just turn it 90 degrees and that key will stay in when it's unlocked. So you just pull this out and you can see there's your lock and your dual pin and then you just slide this off and then what you can do is turn this over and you want to put it in the drop position so just line it up with the lower holes, take your dual pins, line it up with the lower holes, then push it in and then just turn it 90 degrees and it locks it into place. And now you have it in the drop position. Now the next thing I want to show you is how to, you want to switch out to a 2-inch ball. You have a 2 5/16s so same way. We're gonna remove it, unlock it, twist this 90 degrees, pull out the dual pin. Okay and remove the shank and then what you'll notice in the ball mount platform there's a little cutout here and there's a ring in there that's on the end of the pin. What you'll do is just pull this ring and then pull the pin right out, it has a little ball bearing on the end and you just pop your ball out, switch it to the 2-inch, line this hole up with the hole right there, put your pin in, push it in far enough, just like that to where that ring goes in that indentation, doesn't get in the way of your sliding. Now you have your 2-inch ball and then just put that on there, line your holes up, yep there you go, lock it and then you're ready to go. Pretty simple to do and then again you'll be able to read once you put your weight on here you'll be able to read what the tongue weight is and it'll be able to tell you if you need to modify the weight in the trailer. But that should do it on part number WS6-2. This is the way safe 2-ball mount with the built-in tongue weight scale for a 2-inch hitch, has a 6-inch drop or a 7-inch rise and a 10,000 pound weight capacity. .

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


Comments

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.

I have found this to be useful when I overload my trash trailers, also used it to position axles on a boat trailer that did not have enough tongue weight. Excellent Construction well-built however it has more parts than a regular hitch and you need to be diligent to make sure nothing comes loose. 567386

I've Had my weigh safe hitch now for about a year. I've used it about a dozen or so times now & I have to say, I'm satisfied w/ my purchase. The ease of changing the ball & the height makes towing different trailers a breeze. The light weight is also a plus! The cost was a little higher then I'd like hence my 4 stars & not 5. As for the quality, so far so good! I'm looking forward to many years of use. I've already convinced 2 other friends to buy them & 2 others want to see it & I know they will get the hitch as well after seeing it! 519114

The Weigh Safe Ball mount has worked out very well. The height adjustment has helped as I needed a lift, rather than a drop. At a quick glance, I can confirm that my boat trailer is in compliance and is balanced correctly without guessing. This has allowed me to "level" the vehicle with minimal effort. No sagging rear ends. I highly recommend the Weigh Safe 2. 477994

by:


Seems very well made only thing I don't like is the ball. Even though it is well secured it is a little sloppy fitting in the hitch. This will creating a clunk when you are starting and stopping. Most likely you need the slop so there will be enough clearance for the scale to work so i don't think it is a defect just the way it needs to be to work with the scale. 299379

I gave the hitch to my son for a Christmas present. He did not use it until Midsummer, found out the scale on the hitch does not work. We do not have the paperwork anymore so we just wrote it off as a bad purchase. 454404

Probably the best adjustable height and multi-hitch ball system I've ever seen. It meets my towing capacity needs, height is easily adjusted up/down and having the 2 5/16", 2" and the optional 1 7/8" ball means I can tow all my toys. But I think the 1 7/8" ball should be standard when ordering. Otherwise, the tongue weight scale is an outstanding feature to have to make sure your trailer is loaded safely, as in... WEIGH SAFE!! 433622


Comments

The weigh safe hitch is probably the best hitch that I have owned. However, the integrated lock on the hitch to raise or lower the ball seized up on me and it took me a considerable amount of time to free it up. The cover that I ordered may have prevented the dirt and road dust from getting inside the lock, but the way that it connects to the hitch to cover the lock is a really poor design because you could lose the cover while driving down the road.

This ball mount is perfect. I can’t believe I rode around for 3 years without knowing whether or not I was doing it right. This camper is the first thing I’ve towed, bought it when I owned a Tacoma. Traded it in for a Sequoia and now the height is different by enough for it to put way too much tongue weight on my old ball mount/hitch (I had to Google tongue weight). With this new adjustable mount with a built in scale I don’t have to guess. Take a look... tongue weight is 11-12%, and I know that because of the scale. They should make this mandatory. etrailer was very helpful by the way, I called and talked to someone live because I don’t know exactly what I’m doing... 529541

Installed the Weigh Safe this afternoon without any problems. I initially set the drop to the same depth as the fixed unit and checked the tongue weight. It was much heavier than I expected, (nearly 1,100LBS) and I will now work to redistribute weight and try to lighten the tongue. The unit is extremely well made, highly adjustable, easy to configure, and is an extremely helpful tool. It also looks really nice and adds a distinctive appearance. Really glad I made the purchase. 213242

Impressive workmanship. Very heavy, solid unit. The components fit together perfectly, no slop - excellent machining. It will make switching between my camper, boat and trailer, and car trailer with the proper tongue weight easy and worry free. I can even hook up to friends equipment easily. I just like the peace of mind that comes with knowing a proper tongue weight is always in place. I bought the 1-7/8 inch ball just in case. I also bought the hitch lock and pin lock set so the unit doesn't get "misplaced". 501470

My truck is a Dodge Ram 2500 and the rear end sits higher than other pickups. I purchased this hitch system with the scale and interchangeable balls for a more efficient hitch system. I like the fact that you can see what the tongue weight is before hauling down the road. I truly like the adjustable height and was tired of having to change out hitches between the 2 5/16 inch and and 2 inch ball. This is much safer and easier to use. 353852

It is very important to know the tongue weight of a trailer and most people have no idea what their weight is. The WS6-2 hitch is a quality product that makes changing the height or size of the ball a piece of cake and at the same time tells you what the tongue weight of your trailer is. 233785


Comments

I have used the WS6-2 for a year now and love it. I recently made some changes to my trailer and the scale on the hitch showed me that I needed more tongue weight. It was an easy fix but I would never have known there was a problem without the WS6-2 hitch.

I really like the ability to see my tongue weight as I'm loading my trailer. I have an 18' car hauler that I have pulled a variety of different cars with, from a Neon to an F250 extended cab long box V10, forward and backward. The only complaint I have, I left the hitch in my truck over the winter and the key hole for the adjustable height pin got gummed up with road grime and salt. Other than that one issue, It seems to be a great product, and I'm glad I spent the money instead of going cheaper, and guessing. 492348

This hitch sometimes has what looks lilke fresh Transmission or regular oil on the bottom of it when I remove it... I usually remove it each time it is used and put it in the trunk of the car... Very nasty having to wipe it down to get the oil from it... Very disgusting for a hitch in this price range... Looks good otherwise but a hassle to keep it clean and the oil out of my trunk lest I forget 325075


Comments

Woody, thank you for your review and your business. The oil is coming from the scale and may be leaking enough to affect the readings from the gauge. There may be a defective seal or the ball mount may have been overloaded. Since this product has a limited lifetime warranty, please contact us at 1-800-298-8924. We would love to help!

I love this hitch. Don't know how I lived without it. The flexibility is huge, and the built in scale helps me lots with loading- it takes guessing out of the equation regarding tongue weight. It needs some periodic lube on the slide, but even WD40 works well. When driving around in the city, you can turn the ball around to gain a few inches better served for parallel parking and still keep the hitch on the truck. 405045

The build quality on this hitch is very nice. Came in a padded box with individual compartments for each piece of the drop hitch and the 2 balls. Used the hitch this weekend to pull our new racing trailer at 5.5k pounds. The built in tongue weight scale was a godsend. We thought we had the trailer balanced nicely, but the tongue weight was off, shifted some stuff around to get it perfect. Nice having the weight available instantly, rather than having to unhitch the trailer to weigh the tongue. 188564

Received the hitch and it was exactly what I expected. Quality and ease of use. Going to pickup a new trailer so we will see how the scale works for measuring tongue weight. Trailer weighs 1240lbs so expecting the scale to come at 120 to 190 lbs. Scale show 100lbs with nothing on it but expecting it will calibrate one the trailer is connected. Have purchase from eTrailer several times - always get exactly what I ordered never any excuses. Quality stuff. 562706

The product worked as advertised. As the trailer was getting loaded with gravel I was able to monitor the tongue weight and tell the worker to load the trailer further aft to prevent exceeding the tongue weight limit.

Mounted today to 2017 F150 King Ranch and 2018 NEO enclosed 28' overall aluminum trailer. With the ball mount in the middle rise position the trailer is about 1" higher in the front.

Great product, worked out very well. Allows me to easily find that balance point in my cargo trailer to get the 500lb tongue weight that my 1/2 ton truck is rated for.

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Can Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount Be Used With Weight Distribution System
  • There are no weight distribution systems designed to be able to use the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount, part # WS6-2. All weight distribution system require a shank and do not attach directly to a ball mount like the # WS6-2. Based on the numbers you mentioned I recommend a weight distribution system like part # C17322. This system has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 lbs. The system includes sway control that helps when facing high winds...

  • Comparing 6" Drop and 8" Drop Weigh Safe Ball Mounts to Use on a 2015 Chevy Tahoe
  • It looks like you have half of the information needed to choose a ball mount with the correct Rise or Drop for your towing application. To know exactly what you need you will need to measure the height of the bottom of your trailer coupler when it is on level ground. You will then subtract the height of your coupler from the 23 inches that you measured from the top of the inside of your hitch receiver on your 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe. With that being said, since the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount...

  • Weigh Safe Ball Mount Recommendations for a 2015 Ram 1500
  • If the 10 inch drop version of the Weigh Safe ball mount is too much then I recommend the 8 inch model, # WS8-2 for a 2 inch hitch or # WS8-25 for a 2-1/2 inch hitch. It will provide more vertical adjustment than the 6 inch model but won't hang down quite as low as the 10. If you have multiple trailers now then you can measure the coupler height by making them level and measuring from the ground to the bottoms of the couplers. Compare that to the hitch measurement from the ground to...

  • Recommended Weigh Safe Ball Mount With Scale For 7000 GVWR Trailer And 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • I recommend the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2" Hitch - 6" Drop, 7" Rise - 10K, # WS6-2. This ball mount has a 10,000 lb capacity and 2 hitch balls that come with the unit. It has a 2 inch ball and a 2-5/16 inch ball so you have the versatility to haul different trailer coupler sizes. If you want a smaller hitch with the nearly all of the same functions, I recommend the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2" Hitch - 4" Drop, 5" Rise - 10K, # WS4-2. This does...

  • Clearance Dimensions of Weigh Safe # WS6-2 Adjustable Ball Mount
  • Actually, some of the photos Weigh-Safe shows on their website are incorrect, and they're aware of the problem. The shank of the # WS6-2 has two hitch pin holes that are 3-1/8 and 4-1/8 away from the upright as shown in the photo I've edited for you.

  • Recommended Weigh Safe Ball Mounts for 2-1/2-Inch and 2-Inch Hitches
  • It is hard to beat the convenience of having a tongue weight (TW) scale built-in to your ball mount. Their aluminum construction means no powder-coat finish to chip off and no worries about rust. The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount with Built-In Scale # WS8-25 will fit the 2-1/2-inch hitch on your 2016 Silverado 2500 and give you a height adjustment range in 1-inch increments from 9-inches of rise down to 8-inches of drop. For your 2012 Silverado 1500's 2-inch hitch you can select one of...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Use with Weigh Safe Ball Mount
  • To remove the movement in the hitch between the Weigh Safe # WS6-2 and the hitch opening you would need to use a wedge style anti-rattle like the part # RM-061. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Availability of Weigh Safe System that Includes Weight Distribution
  • The Weigh Safe ball mounts, like part # WS6-2, do not have a Weight Distribution (WD) system that they are compatible with as a WD system will act as the ball mount. If you need to use a WD system then I recommend using a Tongue Weight Scale # 5780 to help make finding your Tongue Weight (TW) much easier. We recommend using a WD system if your trailer weighs more than half the weight of your tow vehicle. If this is the case for you then I highly recommend using a WD system. I really...

  • How to Choose the Right Ball Mount for a Horse Trailer
  • Your setup looks nice. It is difficult to guess measurements from a photo, but I can surely help to get your trailer more level. For safety and comfort, your trailer should always be as level as possible. A level trailer handles well, promotes even wear on your tires and minimizes the stress on your truck and your trailer. And, obviously, makes the horses' ride more enjoyable. The easiest way to achieve this is by selecting the ball mount with the correct rise or drop. With your truck...

  • Scale Recommendation for Determining Trailer Tongue Weight
  • A much easier method for determining tongue weight would be to use the scale # 5780. If you check out the video I attached you can see how this would be used. I also attached a help article on determining tongue weight. Trying to use the # WS6-2 without a tow vehicle to determine tongue weight would be overly complicated and borderline unsafe. The # 5780 is designed for what you are trying to do so there would be not comparison. It would be a much better solution.

  • Weigh Safe Ball Mount Replacement Shanks, Anti-Rattle, and Ball Movement
  • Hello and welcome back! There are numerous replacement shanks only for the Weigh Safe ball mounts such as # WS6-2. I have included a link to the various options for you. The shank for the WS6-2 is # DB6-2. Current pricing is available on its product page. Ball mounts are going to rattle, and adjustable ball mounts, being comprised of several pieces, can rattle more so. With that said the ball platform part of the Weigh Safe ball mounts is pretty secure. The 2 pins are of course...

  • Recommendation For Reducing Rattle From Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount
  • A great anti-rattle device to remove the rattle from your Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/Built-in Scale, Item # WS6-2, is the sleeve style Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Device, Item # 325-GH-033. I contacted the manufacturer and they are confident that it will fit. Once you put it in place on your ball mount and tighten the set screw you will not have to install it again.

  • How Much Does Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount with Built-In Scale Weigh
  • With either of the balls installed in the Weigh Safe ball mount # WS6-2 it will weigh approximately 15 pounds. I have included a link to a video review of this ball mount for you.

  • Can a Weigh Safe Ball Mount be Used with a Weight Distribution System
  • You will need to verify the tongue weight but if you are using weight distribution then its head, shank, and ball would be what is used so you wouldn't be able to use Weigh Safe ball mount # WS6-2. There are different ways to calculate tongue weight. A tongue weight scale, # 5780, is going to be the best. I have included a link to our help article on determining tongue weight and another on weight distribution for you.

  • What Is The Distance Between The Shaft Coming Down And The 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball On The WS6-2?
  • I believe you were asking about the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2" Hitch - 6" Drop, 7" Rise - 10K, # WS6-2 and the distance between the drop shaft and the closest inside edge of the 2-5/16 inch ball. This distance is 1-3/4 inches. If that isn't what you were asking, or if you need more information, let me know and I'd be happy to help.

  • Are there Stainless Steel or Aluminum Ball Mounts
  • There have been stainless steel ball mounts in the past but they were pricey so aluminum is the way to go now. Aluminum offers corrosion resistance, lighter weight, and a lower cost compared to stainless steel so it would make a good option for you. I have included a link to the right to the aluminum ball mounts we carry. I have also included a link to a help article that covers how to measure to get a ball mount with the proper rise or drop needed to tow a trailer level. Aluminum...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount for 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • For your 2 inch trailer hitch, there are many adjustable ball mount options. The # LTB6-2 has the dual ball mount platform and the # WS6-2 has the single ball with the integrated scale. The shank and locks on these are identical. The # AM3410 and the # AM3405 are also nearly identical with the greaseless ball being the only difference. This simply has a coating for slightly less friction noise. We don't carry the other options you mentioned so I can't really give you an accurate...
