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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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

I didn't know how much I needed one of these mounts. The information about tongue load has always been important and guessing isn't the best way to determine the number. My mount isn't quite as shiny after a year of use but it's still easy to disassemble for the quick change on the balls and to adjust the height occasionally. I think it's very well made and the price shouldn't hold you back if you pull any significant weight with an unknown load center. And, if you're worried about the aluminum part, don't. I think it's a 6061-T6 alloy which is very strong. Mine doesn't have even a nick after a year of pretty regular use. 767326

I am very pleased with the construction, light weight, and functionality. The tongue weight indicator allowed real time load spotting in my enclosed car hauler, resulting in solid handling while towing at highway speeds. I highly recommend this product. REFlowers 766564

  • Can the Weigh Safe Scale Mechanism Be Rebuilt or Replaced?
    You can't actually rebuild, per se, but you can replace the platform that contains the scale and ball mount. For a 2" hitch you can use # WS01 and the 2-5/16" hitch platform is # WS01-5 . They don't have an option available to replace just the scale mechanisms within the platform though but this would save you from having to replace the entire unit.
