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.

I have not used it yet I just got it but from the quality workmanship I am sure it will be a great tool to have for my truck as I do tow allot with trailers of all different elevations. It is actually so nice looking I almost don't want to use it. I needed it right away over the Thanksgiving holiday ordered it Wednesday and got it Friday. Very good service.. 319763

Cleverly designed and masterfully machined. The ease of adjustment is perfect to allow adaptation to my trailers. Intelligent use of aluminum and stainless steel. I'm glad a friend recommended the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount with built-in scale. 322035

Only had the opportunity to us this once thus far for a 1000+ mile move. Loved the quality and having a scale built in. 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

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

What a piece of equipment. Built solid and secure. Ihave had several people marvel at the idea of the built in scale and one even asked if i would help out and determine the tongue wight for him. You will no regret buying this monster 276994

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!

just what i was looking for, it is about time someone made a high quality 2 1/2" receiver that is not a 2" with a wrap around it to make it 2 1/2". lighter than i expected and sweet quality!!! Love it, I highly recommend it! 179646

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

This hitch and ball has the ability to handle any load and answers any questions you may have on that load. I bought this hitch because of the tongue weight scale, adjustable height and multiple balls. I have a boat and trailer with a total weight of 7300 lbs. I tow the boat each year to different locations around the country. I found the importance of proper load balancing and leveling the hard way (Blowouts and bent axles due to pot holes around Flagstaff, AZ in April, 2017). With the built-in tongue scale I can adjust my boat on the trailer plus adjust the height of the tongue to keep the boat level on the trailer axles. The Reese fixed height receiver cost $100.00. The additional cost for the adjusting capability is more than worth it. 433969


Comments

It has been a year now and the Weigh-Safe has been working out very well. I took the boat to Lake Powell a 4000 mile round trip this year and the trailer handled great. With the load balanced on the tongue weight as recommended it actually made the trip safer. I had to bring the boat 10 inches forward to achieve the proper tongue weight.

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.

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

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

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 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

Everything has mostly worked as advertised, but tongue weight scale became inoperable after only a few trips. The ease to adjust hitch height and easily change ball size is advantageous when using in a variety of trailer applications.

The product is extremely versatile. The scale allows for easy trailer loading and set-up while the height adjustment allows for a wide variety of trailers.

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount with a 2-1/2 Inch Shank and 2 Balls
  • Adjustable ball mount # DTSTBM6625 has a fixed sleeve. I have tired to take one off before and they just do not come off. It isn't welded but it is very much stuck on there making the unit solid as a rock. 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. It also has a built in tongue weight scale. I have linked a video review for you.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • How Many Hitch Balls Are Included In Weigh Safe Ball Mount With Scale
  • The Weigh Safe ball mounts we offer come with 2 hitch balls included, but you can order the third ball as a separate item. I have attached a link to our product page for the Weigh Safe ball mounts we offer. You would need to order the set based on the hitch receiver opening, weight capacity, and rise or drop you need. I have attached a link to a helpful article that explains how to measure to find the correct ball mount. For example, if you need a 12,500 lb ball mount for a 2-1/2...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount For 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Receivers
  • We do not have the Andersen 2-1/2 inch adjustable ball mount but I do have a solution for you. I recommend the Weigh Safe Ball mount. 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. For a ball mount that has a 6 inch drop or 7 inch rise the ball mount I recommend is part # WS6-25. If...

  • 2-1/2 inch Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for Use with a Rock Tamer Mudflap System
  • Yes, the RockTamers Mudflap part # ERT00110 would be compatible with the The WeightSafe 2-1/2 inch ball mount # WS6-25 that you referenced. We had a customer come back and tell us that the two products worked well together.

  • Locking Hitch Pin to Use with Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch Hitch
  • The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS6-25 that you referenced does not come with a locking hitch pin, but you can order one separately with part # 1469DAT. 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.

  • Recommended Steel Adjustable Ball Mount for a 2-1/2
  • For a Steel Adjustable Ball Mount, I recommend the Curt Adjustable 2 Ball Mount for 2-1/2" hitches # C45902. This ball mount will fit your 2-1/2" hitch and has a 6" drop or 5-1/4" rise. This ball mount is made from durable heavy-duty steel and has an anti-rattle design to help reduce towing noise. You may want to consider an aluminum ball mount over steel because it is lighter and more resistant to rust. For an aluminum ball mount, I recommend the Weigh Safe Adjustable 2-Ball Mount #...

  • Aluminum Adjustable Dual Ball Mount Recommendation that Includes a 1-7/8 inch Ball
  • I have a similar aluminum adjustable ball mount that I can recommend for you, but there are no Weigh Safe ball mounts like the part # WS6-25 that you referenced with that size ball. Instead check out the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount part # AM3411. This ball mount is very similar to the one that you referenced except it has a 2 inch ball and a 1-7/8 inch ball. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Compatibility of Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler CA-5196-B with Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount
  • I pulled both the Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5196-B that you have on your trailer and the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS6-25 from our warehouse in order to ensure they will fit without issue. When attaching the coupler to the 2 inch hitch ball, there was plenty of clearance between the lip of the coupler and the vertical surface on the ball mount. I have attached an image that shows this fit for you to check out. The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount is a great product with a built...

  • Ball Mount to Fit a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver with 6 Inches of Drop
  • We have a couple ball mounts that are going to be very close to what you're looking for. The Curt Ball Mount # 45291 is a fixed ball mount that has 7-3/4 inches of drop and 10-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It also has a maximum tongue weight of 1,200 pounds. However, it is steel and not aluminum. You also need a hitch ball # C40030. Another option is the Fastway Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2625 that's rated up to 1,800 pounds...

  • Availability of Multi-Ball Ball Mounts
  • It sounds like you are looking for a stainless-steel adjustable ball mount with multiple hitch balls. We offer 2-1/2-inch polished billet aluminum ball mounts like # WS6-25 with a built-in tongue weight scale and 2 hitch balls, and also powder-coated steel ball mounts like # C45900, but nothing in all stainless-steel.

  • 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...

  • Adjustable Height Ball Mount Recommendation with Tighter Ball Mount Platform Clearance
  • Sounds like you have an adjustable ball mount similar to the MaxxTow part # MT70380 which uses pins to adjust the height and hold the ball to the shank. 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.
