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 WS8-3 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Weigh-Safe Adjustable 2-Ball Mount with the built in tongue weight scale for a 3" hitch. It has an 8" drop, an 8" rise and a 21,000 lb weight capacity. This adjustable ball mount, with included hitch ball to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion right here, is a little slide into your 3" hitch receiver opening. Then the hitch balls is what will provide the connection point for your trailer coupler. The Weigh-Safe ball mount has this easy to use built in scale here. This will measure your trailer's tongue weight every time you tow. Now if that scale indicates your tongue weight's too low or too high, you can adjust it before you head out so that you can complete your trip with the peace of mind knowing that your towing set up is safe. Weigh-Safe is the only ball mount that has this built in scale to measure the tongue weight.

You might wonder why is tongue weight so important; well too much tongue weight can affect your driving maneuverability. Of course, too little tongue weight and your trailer might fishtail, swing into other lanes, or might just come off the ball. Tongue weight's typically 10-15% of your gross trailer rate. An example is, if you got a 10,000 lb trailer, the tongue weight should be between 1,000-1,500 lbs. You can adjust the tongue weight of your trailer by removing or adding cargo, or just redistributing the load that's already on the trailer. This Weigh-Safe scale is linear rated up to 22,000 lbs. The marks on it on the gage are in 100 lb increments.

Basically, just to measure your tongue weight is as easy as just coupling your trailer to this Weigh-Safe ball mount. Simply hook the trailer to the ball mount just as you would any other ball mount. The weight of the trailer will push down on the hitch ball, which in turn will push down on an internal hydraulic piston that will sit in the bed of oil. This piston is inside the mount right here, so when that piston drops into the oil, the pressure reading is sent to the scale. You can see it's an adjustable heighth ball mount, so this will let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle. The ball mount platform will just slide up or down the shank, and you secure it in place with the included dual locking pin lock right here, as opposed to some of the adjustable ball mounts that use individual pins and individual clips.

That can be a hassle to line everything up. The two keys you can see are included. We just put the key in to unlock it, just turn it to unlock it. You can see they slide right out all in one piece, very easy to do. Basically this Weigh-Safe ball mount, you can use it in either a drop or a rise position to match the height of your trailer. Basically you can see, you put it up to what's adjustable, so you put it to what heighth you need. Then because you can use an either drop, this is the drop position; you can turn it around and use it in the rise position just like that, either one. In each position the maximum drop or the maximum rise is going to be 8".

If we measure from the top of the shank to the top of the platform, so this is the max rise, there's your 8". If we turn it back around and do the max drop, there's your maximum drop; and same way, it's going to be right at 8". You notice the holes here, there at 1" increments center to center. You have an incremental heighth adjustment of 1". Now I do want to give you the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball. If we slide that up, and we take a ruler and go center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball is 8 3/4". You notice it does come with two different size hitch balls to let you tow trailers with different coupler sizes. This one is a 2", has an 8,000 lb rating, which is stamped on the top. This one's a 2 & 5/16" with a 21,000 lb rating. To switch the balls is very simple, I'll show you how to do that. You just look right in here on the ball mount platform, you can see there's a retaining pin that holds the ball in and a ring on the end. You just pull the ring, the pin will come out. You take the ball right out, take the larger one, line the hole up with the hole in the ball mount, drop it in place. Line your retaining pin up, push it all the way in. Now it's locked in and you're all ready to go. You can just put it back on the shank. Very simple to switch the balls out. Now the balls themselves are stainless steel, so they are corrosion resistant. The hitch shank portion and the mounting platform, they are made of a 60-61 T6 aluminum. That's used in aircraft construction, so it will give you superior strength and durability. The application on this is 3" by 3" trailer hitch receivers. Gross towing weight capacity will depend on the ball you use; if you use the smaller 2" ball, it will be stamped 8,000 lbs. If you use the larger 2 5/16", 21,000 lbs. Maximum tongue weight is going to be 2,200 lbs. This part is made in the USA. That should do it for the review on the Weigh-Safe adjustable 2 ball mount with a built in tongue weight scale for a 3" hitch. Has an 8" drop, 8" rise and a 21,000 lb weight capacity.

First off I paid for the overnight shipping and it was true overnight shipping. Within 24 hours of ordering it was delivered. Since there are not many 3" hitches on the market yet, I was scepticle about the Qaulity of those that were. I had never bought or heard of weigh safe products before so I was not expecting much. Yet when I saw the qaulity of the hitch as I removed it from the box in the future I will not be hesitant to buy weigh safe products. From the easy key set up to move the height adjustment to the ease of changing the size of the ball with a pull of a pin and with it being made out of aluminum so no rusting or repainting what more could you ask for. Thank you again e-trailer for the fast shipping!!!!! A+A+A+ 346443

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


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

Ordered the Weigh Safe drop ball mount WS10-25. Product I received looks used. The Weigh Safe sticker was missing and the hitch had gouge marks on the shaft and ball mount. This was probably a return item that was shipped to me. I'm very disappointed. For $309 I expect a new product, not a returned restock or used item in poor quality. First time buying at etrailer. Most likely my last. 419083

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


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

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


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 am very pleased with my new hitch from Etrailer. It exceeded my expectations. Fit my lifted 2015 GMC 2500 perfectly. I've used it several times and my trailer pulls very well now. Almost forgot it was back there. You know quality when you see it. This hitch was made with attention to quality and detail. Well worth the investment I made. 424755

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


Wanted a Class V adjustable hitch for my F350. The aluminum Weigh Safe 2-1/2" Hitch is just what I needed for my 2 trailers. Easy to adjust the ball height for each trailer. The 12,500 lb towing capacity is 2x over what I normally tow for a comfortable safety margin. 180176


Comments

Looks great! Do you have any issues with the drawbar scraping the ground? How many inches of clearance do you have below it? I have a stock 4x4 F250, with about a 21.5 hitch height, and debating whether to go for the 10 or the 8 . I could use the 10 for a couple of low trailers, but worry about scraping it and weakening it when towing my big trailers that dont need as much . Thanks.

For MotoKrome, I previously owned an F250 and it does not sit as high in the rear, about 3-4 difference. I would suggest going with the 8 . I checked the clearance on a couple of curbs with my F350 and have several inches of clearance. I especially like the tongue weight readout on the hitch.

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


Great product. This hitch was exactly what I needed. We do a lot of off-roading, and I bring different machines depending on what type of trip we are taking. Being able to dial in my tongue weight when I run different set ups on my trailer is worth its weight in gold. It is HEAVY DUTY, quality is top notch, and it looks great. Everyone notices it, and asks about it. Now that I've used for a year, I don't know that I could go back to using a hitch without a scale in it. It is that useful. 344331

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


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.

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


I bought the ball mount for my 2016 Ram 3500, the 8" drop is perfect for the trailers I have. It was delivered in early November, and I have left it on the truck since installation. I love the mount and the built in tongue weight scale. I have a couple words of advice. One, If you have a trailer with smaller tires, under 16" you may want to opt for the 10" drop to keep the trailer level. Two, the ball may get frozen in to the socket. Mine happened to get stuck, instead of banging on it, I just brought it into the house for 5 minutes and that took care of it. Lastly, if you are using the mount during the winter, I would recommend removing the ball and socket and keeping it in the cab after use. The lock on mine didn't care for the salt and sand an became stuck, after a bit of fiddling and WD-40 I was able to get the key to turn the lock again, with the help of a pair of pliers. Since then I keep those in the cab and have had no problems since. I would recommend this to anyone that has a 2.5" receiver. 374102

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


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

Better than I expected. Great quality, good looking on the back of my new Ram Laramie 2500 diesel. The best part of the whole purchase was the top shelf service I received from etrailer's George J.

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


Nice chamfering, excellent machining/milling/deburring. Tolerances are not quite as tight as I'd like them to be, but understand tradeoff between ease of install/setup and prevention of galling, versus slop. It is easy to insert into receiver hitch, ball mount is easily slid onto hitch stem, lock mechanism slides through and locks easily and balls fit easily into socket. Slop/clunk is tolerable when towing, but I would prefer tighter tolerances if possible, especially for the price. It does rattle a bit when unloaded. Scale is fairly accurate. Also for price I wish they provided a padded storage solution for this item, since it is aluminum, keeping it installed in the steel receiver is not a good idea due galvanic corrosion, and just throwing it into the toolbox or a bag could result in a broken scale. I'll have to purchase a box with custom foam inserts to store this to protect it. 358127

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


After buying a new Escalade to tow my enclosed sports car trailer, I discovered that with my new vehicle's 22" wheels, that I needed a "drop hitch" so that the trailer would tow flat. Without an 8" ball-drop, the rear of the trailer would be dragging, not to mention that tongue weight would have been non-existent. This Weigh-Safe unit is the perfect solution to those problems. I am very impressed with the function and workmanship of this beautiful high-end hitch. I was so pleased that the day after receiving this unit, I installed it and towed a treasured (and very valuable) 1965 Corvette Sting Ray in the trailer over 800 miles the very next day without a worry. 259205

THIS IS THE ONE, the only one you'll ever need! DON'T DO what I did - I have purchased about 8 different hitch ball mounts and balls for various trailer and vehicle combinations over the years and for what I paid you could have bought this with a lot of $$$ left over! I just got it and can tell without having used it yet that IT WILL HAUL ANYTHING YOU'RE GOING TO PULL. It is top quality construction and design, and best of all it is made in the USA! It has a solid shank, is easily adjustable either up or down, a beefy adjustment lock, easy ball size changing, a stowed position to eliminate bruised shins, and the unique tongue weight scale - built like a TANK! The weight scale is essential for towing safety and for balancing a load. Too bad it took me so long to get it RIGHT, anybody need any used hitch ball mounts? 321491

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


The workmanship of the aluminum work is over the top. I have an F250 with a 6 inch lift and this will work perfect with the different trailers I have for Pulling. Another reason I went with this product is because of the stainless steel balls and the ability to be able to change out the balls. Having two balls on the hitch system at all times for me.... I thought that looked a little tacky. Also the built-in scale for the ability to see my tongue weight is a pretty cool idea. If you're having problems with someone figuring out what drop you would like the staff at etrailer is really nice 334866

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


I purchased this to mate with he 25-10 hitch. It rounds out the set that includes that 2 inch and 2 5/16 ball. The combo is a perfect fit for my stock Ram 3500 4x4 (man are these trucks tall). I have the 6.4 gas engine so the 14,000 capacity of the hitch (when paired with the large ball) matches perfectly with my truck's towing capacity. I still have to watch the hitch weight though as this hitch is way more capable than the 1400 lb tongue weight on my bumper. My weight gauge differs slightly in graduation and color (mine has no green color indications to indicate a safe range or red for overload. The gauge has black and white graduations). Its not an issue, just thought buyers should know. This is a manly set of gear. Im positive that this will be the last hitch I ever purchase. 323653

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


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

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


i looked at a lot of different ball mounts for my F250 trying to find one as heavy duty as the truck with the correct amount of drop and didn't look like a 60 pound steel anval hanging from the rear bumper when I came across the WS10-25 with 14500# towing capability in stylish aluminum construction 10" drop (which is just what I needed for my enclosed motorcycle trailer) 11" rise reversible so that it stores under the bumper out of the way when not in use and The tongue weight gauge built right in I couldn't wait to get it on my truck!! 262421

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


This product does not disappoint. I just received it today. Fit and finish are superior even to my strict standards. One thing that is different about the unit compared to the published pictures is that the tang that inserts into the receiver is squared off as opposed to angular as shown in the pictures. I prefer this squared look/style much more. I am very anxious/excited to use this hitch. Only time will tell how the scale function will last. Based on the quality machining and fitment, I am betting it will last a long time. AMERICAN MADE!!!! 216779

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


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

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


This works great. This is when I first got it. I am only polling my trailer with one pallet of concrete. The total weight of the trailer plus load was 4,600 lbs. It was easy to see and set my tung weight. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to know there tung weight, but you don't want the hassle of using scales. 400547

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


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

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


I was initially skeptical about purchasing this hitch thinking it was only another gimmick. After researching and then using it to pull my 38' toy hauler I'm convinced this is a really good hitch. I use the scale to keep my tongue weight within the 10% of my trailer weight by moving the heavier items forward or backwards. It's really a lot easier to use because I don't have to hook up chains, lift up the whole truck with the tongue jack, or guess at how tight to make the anti-sway bar(s). 334367

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


I use this with on my 2015 Chevy 2500 with a 4 inch lift. I pull a 7x12 dual axle dump trailer, 16 foot enclosed trailer along with some smaller trailers. The ease of adjustment with this hitch is terrific, I like the weight scale on the side especially when I'm hauling heavy loads, gives me an idea how my load is sitting. It's definitely a heavy duty unit, solid aluminum however fairly light, and i like how the double locking pins allow for NO play at all in the ball on the mount slide. Very well made and I would Highly Recommend it. If I remember when I ordered this from trailer it was delivered within a few days. All in all everything went fine from ordering to the hitch itself. 248689

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


My 2016 Yukon came with 20 inch wheels and the receiver moved up into the bumper not below it like my old Yukon. The 8 inch drop solved the problem as I have 13 inch wheels on my trailer. I can now pull it level and know exactly how much weight is on the tongue. I do need to use the full 8 inch drop. Great Product. Be sure to measure, if you have 22 inch wheels, or a small trailer low to the ground, get the 10 inch drop. e trailer is great to work with and shipping is fast. 249710


Comments

The hitch works great, absolutely no rust. Very east to switch from 2 to 1-7/8 ball for different trailers. I would highly recommend this hitch over a steel one that will show rust after a short time. Being able to get the tongue weight correct is a super plus!

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


Bought this for my Tundra 4x4. I originally bought a Curt drop hitch/ball mount for my boat, but before my boat was finished I decide to lift my truck. Therefore I needed an adjustable hitch to avoid buying the wrong height again. I have to say, the quality is night and day between the Curt and the Weigh Safe. It is truly a beautiful ball mount. I have not had a chance to use it but just by playing with it and seeing how everything works and looking over the machining, I can tell this ball mount is of the highest quality, and Made in the USA! The Curt advertises Made in the USA but anything over 10,000lb rating, it comes from China. I definitely recommend this mount. 276358

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


Only used it a couple of times so far, but I'm very happy with it. I tow many different trailers, mostly boats, from 35' 10K lbs to 11' couple hundred pounds, and everything in between. It's great to be able to adjust height and ball size so easily and carry only one receiver. I have been carrying three different receivers and balls, as well as big wrenches to swap them, but not any more. The tongue weight gauge is a bonus when you are towing a trailer for the first time as well. Very well thought out and engineered product, excellent quality. It's expensive, but considering the machining involved and the ease of use, well worth it for me. Would highly recommend. 229448

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

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


This is a very high quality product, you get what you pay for. If you have ever carried a 2.5" steel drop hitch to the back of your truck you will appreciate this hitch. I can store it in the floor storage well of my truck and carry it one handed to the back of the truck. I have towed my 3000 lb trailer for a year on paved and unpaved roads and I have noticed a bit of stress where the hitch exits the receiver and where the ball mount locks onto the drop neck, and a bit of slack when I stop and start, not sure it has any affect on the performance but I am still reluctant to use it for my 7000 lb RV. All in All I am very pleased with this product. 301560

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


I purchased the heavy duty (2 1/2") Weigh Safe drop hitch from etrailer.com to pull my new enclosed 16' dual axle cargo/toy trailer and whatever else I need to give tow too. The confidence that my trailer load is distributed correctly and secure is priceless. The appearance and functionality when mounted on my 2015 Ford F250 King Ranch is great due to the super fit and finish. Someone told me that it looked expensive, my reply: as it should, mounted on a new truck. LOL!. I really like how the ball mount can be positioned under the truck and not be a hazard when not in-use. With the 10" adjustable drop, probably the last hitch I will need.. :-) 179871

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:

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

This is not the first product received from eTrailer, but is the first one I have written a review for. I received this superior product today and am very pleased with it so far. The machining and design of this Weigh-Safe ball mount assembly are absolutely first class. I just hope the weighing assembly is reasonably accurate and lives a long life, as this is the only reason I purchased this ball mount. eTrailer is usually the first web site I go to when looking for trailering items due to all of their products, their how to guides and reviews, along with relatively quick shipping.

The first one shipped to me was defective. But Shawn with etrailer made the return hassle free and I recieved the replacement super fast. As a matter of fact it arrived before I was able to ship the defective one back. I was very impressed. The replacement works like a champ and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It adjusts easily to fit my boat trailer, equipment trailer or super small utility trailer in a matter of seconds. My Dodge Ram 2500 sets up high naturally due to the larger factory tires that came with the snow package. The 10 inch drop was the answer to accommodate all my trailers. 347588

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


Id give it 3.5 stars if i could. At first I loved it. The scale is SUPER convenient. What i dont like is the enormous amount of slop in the hitch. i had to put shimes in to fix. It was excessive when 10,000 lbs is on it. I am also not to thrilled about the 2 aluminum pins that ALL of the weight is sitting on. Also the aluminum hitch showed some maring after one 8,000lbs load and one 10,000 lbs load....the very first 2 loads i used it for. More maring than i am comfortable with. I will still use it being i spent over $300 for this setup :( 382836

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


The weight scale is really nice to help indicate that my load is properly balanced on the trailer. Knowing the tongue weight is also an indicator of how much air pressure I need to run in my suspension air bags. It is well made, easy to use and is strong but not heavy like my steel unit. The reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the lock cylinder can be removed with an allen wrench thus providing no security. It would also have been nice if it came in a storage case to keep the spare ball and the unit when it is not being used. 322757

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


This hitch is awesome, it's very well made out of a solid block of aluminium. I really like how you have to change the balls, they lock in place so you need the key to remove, but are easy to change out. The only thing I didn't notice and it's completely my fault is that the shaft that the pin that goes through to connect to the truck receiver is solid, I ordered an anti-rattle pin and was unable to use it because of that. Once again a complete oversight on my part. The hitch itself is awesome and I would order it again. 232120

Haven't used it yet but it looks awesome right out of the package. Fast shipping, product as good as it looks online and even better. Saved $150 over the more expensive version (can't remember the brand of the $450 brand) plus this one has a scale. What's not to love? I shopped multiple websites and every hitch on eTrailer and this is the best 10" adjustable I found. Fits my 2014 Suburban that mounted the hitch in the bumper instead of below it like every other truck/SUV I've owned. Thank's Chevy.... 183977

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

Best receiver and ball assembly on the market! The built-in scale told me immediately that my trailer's tongue weight was fine and not overloaded as I had previously thought. Masterfully built and exacting as if it were for the aircraft industry. Forget what it costs and buy it. You won't be disappointed. 237340
