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.

The only problem I have with this product is the price. Other than that I like it higher towing capacity in the 2 1/2" receiver than the other products on the market (12,500lbs). Etrailer had one of the lowest prices and it was in Stock and ready to be delivered. Delivery was very prompt and on time. 232420

My hitch arrived promptly and in excellent packaging. It makes a sharp addition on the rear of my 2015 F350. I especially like the storage feature by reversing the hitch and yet having it ready for towing in one minute. Additional advantages are the hitch doesn't become a shin/knee knocker when stored, the top makes for a nice step to reach up inside the bed and it should reduce damage I would get rear-ended. The scale takes the guess work out of where equipment is best placed on my flatbed trailer. 241097

This is a nice ball mount. Having the built-in scale gives us much more confidence when loading whatever equipment we have onto our trailer. I would like if they would include a locking hitch pin though. When spending this much, you would think they could throw that in. If you plan on leaving this in your vehicle, you may want to consider purchasing one. We don't plan on leaving it in our truck when not in use. 418083

Best product out there to get your tongue weight right. Makes a big difference how the trailer pulls in the wind and just down the road. I put on a 150,000-180,000 miles a year pulling trailers. I could tell a difference how the trailer handle right away. 409034

This hitch works ok, but it froze up over the winter and the locking mechanism would not release. I was advised by the manufacturer to "pound it with a hammer until it breaks and buy a new locking mechanism". After a lot of patience and an lot of penetrating oil, (and careful tapping) I was able to get it apart. Recently the scale stopped working and now I have to send the whole thing back to get it either fixed or a replacement. This is a pain, because I use it 4 or 5 times a week right now, so I have to buy something to use while this is being shipped back. I would not recommend this product. 558799

Perfect! Studied adjustable hitches for a while to be sure that i got the right one. I did! Out of all that I looked at this one wasn't the cheapest but its worth it. A lot of guys have asked me where i got it because they were not happy with their less expensive hitch. 385611


Comments

The hitch is working great and after being out in the weather forecast a year and a half it still looks like new. I still have people ask me about it and some people have purchased their own. I look at other peoples hitches and it reassures me that I made the right decision. If I need another hitch this will be the one!

Great solid high quality product just one complaint or concern. The lock and pin setup is only held in with set screws. Or at least appears to be. Hoping there is more security then that as I most of the time leave the hitch on the truck. Very easy to get a tool in there and get to those set screws. Other then that very happy with it. 207597

I got this hitch for a 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 Tradesman with a 2 1/2" receiver, which came with a unit to convert a 2 1/2" receiver to a 2". I had a 2" hitch that came off of a GMC 1500 that hasn't enough drop to fit this truck. This is a good looking unit, and I believe it'll do very well for what I intend to haul. I gave it 4 stars because the barrel-type lock is not covered, making it likely that it could fill up with road crud over time. If Weigh-Safe could develop a cover to protect this, and the hitch lasts a long time, they would earn the 5th star. For now, I'm happy with my purchase, but I intend to figure out a way to protect this weakness. 456891

Fantastic product! I use it each time I connect any trailer to my trucks. The built-in scale eliminates any and all "guessing and estimating" of tongue weight. I was surprised to see how much the tongue weight changed by moving the load just four to six inches. 621729

I received the Ball Mount Hitch in an unbelievable amount of time after ordering. The construction and quality of this Hitch is beyond belief as to the price I paid. I own several trailer hitches from B&W and they do a good job but the fact we can know the tongue weight before travel is awesome. It is very stylish and attractive hitch mounted on your vehicle. The security factor is a plus. This could very easy prevent an accident and save lives. I am thrilled over this product and would recommend it to any person towing a trailer. I only wish the company would have offered a Locking Hitch Pin keyed same as Dual Ball Keeper Pins. 325799

Thanks for your review and your business, John. Good news! There is a locking dual pin assembly and hitch pin set for the 180 hitch and Weigh Safe 2-ball mount which is keyed alike! It is part WS06. You may find the set here:

after a year I am still extremely pleased with this Hitch and it has probably saved me some grief on the road knowing my tongue weight. Every driver who tows a loaded trailer should purchase this product. I highly recommend it and it looks great on a vehicle.

Its been a year since I bought this hitch and my initial opinion has not faltered. I suppose this will be the last hitch I will ever have to buy. I use it daily and the ability to properly load a vehicle with the built in tongue scale is genius. Thanks.

I love etrailer!! This is the second of this hitch I've purchased from etrailer. The first was on my truck when I was rear ended by an 18 wheeler at 50 mph. The hitch actually look good but I just couldn't trust that it was not damaged/stressed. Anyway, I like everything about this hitch. 606905

I like the flexibility and quality build of the weigh-safe. The unit is not perfect, but is darn nice, well built and solid. My complaints are that the Wisconsin winters, specifically the salt have been really tough on the aluminum and the barrel lock. The aluminum is surface pitted and scarred from salt/corrosion. The barrel lock filled with salt to the point I could not get the barrel key in the lock. Then once I got the key in, it would not turn the lock so I could take the unit apart to store or change height. I let it soak, in various liquids to no avail. Finally got it sort of freed up enough to take apart. Then after a lot of aggravation, figured out that soaking it in motor oil was the way to get the barrel lock to work again. Customer support did offer to repair it, but only if I sent the complete unit in for repair. I couldn't spare it, so once I got it working again, have kept it well oiled. Salt corrosion is still an issue here in Midwest. It no longer looks cool/sleek, but is scarred and pitted aluminum. It's still a great product, just know that it won't remain looking sleek and polished in the upper Midwest when used to pull snowmobile trailers like I do. 318187


Comments

After a year plus of fairly frequent use my opinion is pretty much the same- keep the locking mechanism well oiled and it will be fine in the salt winters. But it isnt very shiny or niceLooking any longer due to salt corrosion of the aluminum. Great product with a lot of flexibility.

I was towing a vehicle hauler with another truck on it... had additional items packed in the truck that I did not want the moves to move for me. 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

I bought a Weigh-Safe WS6-25 and left a review on 12/03/1917 which gave it 4 stars. I have a friend who wanted to haul his wood trailer and (large) camper, each of which had different ball sizes. As I wasn't going to use mine for a while, I loaned him my WS6-25. Long story short, he loved it. The trailers each had a different rise, and the 6" drop gave him enough so he was able to set it for each trailer. I told him about Etrailer, but he talked me into selling him mine. So, I bought another WS6-25 for myself. In my review of 12/03/1917, I gave it 4 stars because of concern that road crud would get into the lock, and expressed a desire for Weigh-Safe to address this. They must have paid attention, because they came up with a cover. I had figured out a way to make a cover, but theirs is better. So, as promised, I'm happy to say that I, and my friend, give this hitch 5 Stars. 539274

I wanted to get a ball mount for my new RAM3500, it uses a 2.5 inch receiver and the old truck was a 2 inch. After reviewing my options that ETrailer offered I felt the Weigh-Safe 2.5" with the 6 inch drop would best fit my needs. I switch between a 28' cargo trailer and towing my boat and the Weigh-Safe Ball Mount came with both size hitch balls that I need, plus the added benefit of measuring the tongue weight. I was very impressed with the service from ETrailer, great website, and even more impressed with the Weigh-Safe product. The machine work on the ball mount is perfect and the weigh scale is great for someone like myself who switches between different types of trailers, knowing the tongue weight is correct. This is an extremely well made unit and I highly recommend it. 338339

This thing is an actual piece of art. Beautiful aluminum finish with perfectly machined stainless steel 2", and 2 5/16" ball. Knowing the exact tongue weight on my truck is not only amazing its actual piece of mind when towing the multiple items I tow frequently. Easily one of the best pieces of towing equipment I've ever purchased. Highly recommend! Oh, and to top it off it stows away nicely by simply reversing it on your drop mount. Doesn't get any better than this. Takes the quess work outta wondering if your truck is overloaded or just right. 704239

Excellent Quality hitch that should last you a lifetime if taken care of. This is my second Weigh Safe and they really are the best out there. I docked it one star ONLY BECAUSE it does not come with the "Locking Dual Pin Assembly Dust Cover for Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mounts" part #WS08 like other Weigh Safe hitches do, including my last one which was less expensive overall. Seems very silly to not include this $5 item with a $250+ hitch of this caliber. Especially considering it is essential to the life expentency of the lock in terms of water and debris getting into the mechanics of the lock. Hopefully Weigh Safe will consider including one with every hitch in the future. It just makes sense, even from a warranty mitigation perspective. When buying this hitch, make sure you add the dust cover to your order. 644037

I’ve had it for a year and it still works as it should. I don’t leave it hooked up all the time but it’s been through plenty of weather with no issues.

I have had all expectations met with the WS6-25 aluminum 6 in drop hitch. It looks great, is easy to adjust, and the weight measuring feature is important. It pulls true without slack in the sleeve which is important pulling live weight (horses). The pricing was very competitive. The real pleasure was in the person at etrailer, Diana H. She was very helpful on the phone, resolved an issue in a prior attempt at ordering and followed up by email to make sure the status of the order was known to me and to confirm delivery. Great customer service that will keep me coming back to etrailer. Add the great selection of hitches available and it was a very good experience. 604066

Ordered this mount to install on my (On Order) 2019 F250 King Ranch 4x4. The 6" adjustable drop will provide level towing for the various trailers I use both for business and pleasure. I did order separately the locking pin and inserts that are keyed alike for convenience. Very quick shipping! Product arrived as ordered. Solid construction, great looking product. I know from others this is a superior product. You get what you pay for, and I'm one that always believes in not skimping when it comes to tools or truck accessories. Go ahead, spend a little more, get the good stuff that will do the job every time and be long lasting. 602046

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch on 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • The ball mount I highly recommend for your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty that has a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver like the Curt # C15802 is the B&W Tow & Stow because of its high quality, stow-away design, and the fact it protects the ball mount platform from theft. The hitch ball platform of this mount actually flips underneath the shank to face your truck, saving you from accidentally slamming your leg into it when walking behind your F-250. Additionally, when the Tow & Stow is in your...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Ball Mount For 2017 Ford F-250
  • We have one trailer hitch that is designed to fit your 2017 F-250. It is the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C15802. This is a Class V hitch and it has a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening. The ball mount I recommend for your truck is the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale, part # WS6-25. This will work great with your hitch and it features a 6-inch drop or 7-inch rise. It has a 2-inch and a 2-5/16 inch hitch balls included.

  • Choosing the Right Ball Mount for 2019 F250 Super Duty Crew Cab
  • Adjustable ball mounts like the Weigh Safe # WS6-25 and # WS8-25 provide great flexibility to tow multiple trailers of differing heights. A good starting place is to determine the deepest drop you'll need. The attached diagram and help article can help a great deal in completing this. This is done by measuring from the ground up to the top of the hitch receiver opening for hitch height. To measure coupler height, measure from the ground to the bottom of the trailer's coupler.

  • 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....

  • Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 with 2-1/2 inch Hitch
  • Sounds like you need an adjustable Weigh Safe Ball Mount for a 2-1/2 inch hitch that can do at least a 5 inch drop. The part # WS8-25 you referenced matches everything except it has an 8 inch drop which may be a bit longer than you'd want. The part # WS6-25 instead might be a better option as it has a drop of up to 6 inches instead.

  • Which Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount for 2019 GMC 2500HD 2-1/2 Hitch
  • Car trailers tend to sit pretty low to make it as easy as possible to load the cars without scraping. So the Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount with Scale I recommend is the part # WS8-25 which fits the 2-1/2 inch hitch, can do up to an 8 inch drop and has a built in scale that goes up to 2,200 lbs.

  • Can the Ball Mount from the Weigh Safe # WS6-25 be Used with a 2" Weigh Safe Shank
  • Since the ball mount from the Weigh Safe # WS6-25 measures the same as the ball mount # WS01 for 2" hitches you definitely can use it. The locations for the Locking Dual Pin Assembly # WS03 measures the same for both products as well. The only difference is that the gauge for the 2-1/2" ball mounts, part # WS01-5, goes up to 2,200 lbs while the gauge for the 2" ball mounts # WS01 only goes up to 1,500 lbs. I believe the exact replacement shank you are needing is part # DB6-2 which...

  • Recommended Ball Mount Rated for 14,000 Pounds to Fit a 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • We do have Weigh Safe ball mounts that are rated for over 14,000 pounds, like part # WS6-25, but they're for 2-1/2 inch hitch receivers. For a high capacity 2 inch ball mount I recommend looking at a Gen-Y product like part # 325-GH-515. This particular one is rated up to 16,000 pounds and offers up to 10 inch drop or rise. It doesn't include a tongue weight scale, like some of the Weigh Safe ball mounts, but we do carry a scale, part # 5780.

  • What Does Weigh Safe Ball Mount Actually Weigh?
  • The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS6-25 you have will display the tongue weight on the on the hitch ball. I am unsure from your description what method you used; it would need to be the same as the photo I've attached for there to potentially be an issue. That picture comes from a help article on how to determine tongue weight which I've linked for you. Those are the methods you would need to use to determine if your Weigh Safe was faulty or not.

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2016 Ford F-350 with 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • Since the tongue weight of the trailer will pull down a little on the truck you can go with a ball mount that has a 5 inch drop. I actually recommend going with an adjustable ball mount that has multiple balls, # WS6-25. This ball mount has a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch ball, a built-in tongue weight scale, and the height can be adjusted in 1 inch increments. It is also made of aluminum so it won't rust. If you want to go with a regular cushioned ball mount then the best option for a...

I wish it could be keyed alike to the ball mount but it would require a separate key. We have not had any issues from customers with dust or dirt getting into the barrel lock core of these ball mounts.

  • 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...

The ball mounts we offer for a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening have a weight capacity of 14,500-lbs. The great feature for these ball mounts is the built-in tongue weight scale that helps make sure you know what the tongue weight is regardless of the load.

  • Troubleshooting Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Coupler That Will Not Release
  • With a sleeve-lock A-frame coupler like # CA-5196H-B or # CA-5196-B with the flip latch you can sometimes loosen the coupler's grip on the hitch ball by standing on the vehicle bumper and rocking it or jumping to cause motion of the ball within the coupler. This will often help loosen things up. Applying ball grease # 58117 when you couple the vehicle and trailer is a good idea since this will tend to prevent entry of water (that can cause corrosion) and also block road grit and other...

If you don't know what size trailer hitch receiver you have, just measure the inside opening to see if you get 2" or 2-1/2". Please note, you will need to use a ball mount with a shank long enough for the clamp on the Rock Tamer Mud Flaps to attach.

A similar ball mount, # WS6-25, does have an actual 2-1/2 inch shank, no sleeve, with the same 6 inch drop and 7 inch rise. It is rated for 14,500 pounds and comes with a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch ball.

This ball mount is made from durable heavy-duty steel and has an anti-rattle design to help reduce towing noise.

Both options have a 2,200 lb tongue weight so you should be good as far as the weight goes if 6,500 lbs is your max weight. We do recommend using a weight distribution system for any loaded trailers that weigh at least half the weight of the towing vehicle though.

Welding the pins to the shank would stop the movement but would also prevent you from ever adjusting the height again. Best solution would be an adjustable ball mount with tighter clearances like the Weigh Safe # WS6-25 for a 2-1/2 inch hitch.
