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.

Measure your tongue weight to determine if you can safely tow by simply coupling your trailer to this ball mount. Ball platform locks to shank. Tow up to 8,000 lbs with the 2" ball and up to 10,000 lbs with the 2-5/16" ball.


I am very impressed with this setup and don't know why I didn't buy this sooner. For starters, the adjustable drop/rise allows me to use one hitch between my Ram 2500 and a Grand Caravan. The ease of changing out the ball makes it easy to switch trailers. I appreciate getting the most flexibility out of something. Additionally this is really well built, but not heavy. I like the scale - it's extremely helpful in knowing that I loaded my RV well, and understanding the tongue weight. I rarely need to worry about tongue weight, but it's helpful with setting up a trailer and TV.


I have a lifted truck and this hitch is the best. Depending on what I'm towing, there is a level for each. No need to remove hitch and get another one. All in one. I'm always getting compliments for my hitch. It also takes a lot of guess work out with it's scale. Perfect for my truck and the things I use it for!


I purchased this 10” drop hitch & love it!
was able to get the proper tongue weight for my 18ft flatbed trailer hauling my 4 door Jeep @ total of 7,000 lbs. Towing behind my 40ft diesel pusher.
First trip was about 400 miles to an off-road pearl. Worked great, Very satisfied!

Very Happy. Had an issue with the scale, they promptly replaced it. Vey satisfied with the hitch!
Ben - 07/09/2021


I like the quick change ball because I tow different trailers and the scale in the hitch helps me with centering loads for smother rides and hitch weight


I ask waiting to see how Weigh Safe responds to my complaints. I have had two products fail in close succession (actually the first was inoperative when I received it) etrailer was not able to help me (actually I found your representative very unhelpful and thus I am trying to sort this out with Weigh Safe). Depending on how I get this resolved I will complete my review.

I see in your account that the scale was defective, so we asked Weigh Safe to reship one to you. Was the second one you got defective too?
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 06/27/2022
Yes, I am now talking directly to Weigh Safe - I am returning the product to them.
-- comment by: John - 06/27/2022


Delivered missing the ball mount lock pins and keys (I think Part # WS10-2) which is a large inconvenience to me since I need it this coming week to pick up my new trailer. Called and the part is being sent but not in time for my first need and use. The response to the missing part was excellent but the shipment was missing the part making it useless for the time being.


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).


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.


I have been very happy with this hitch. Easily switch balls and heights from different trucks/trailers quickly. The scale is a nice feature and will help you position your load for the best handling tow. The security features are nice as well.


At first, it seemed to be stuck at zero. Once I got it setup, it worked perfectly. I was able to see a perfect 600# hitch weight by adjusting the position of my rock crawler on the trailer. Indispensible.


Haven't used it yet in a pulling situation. It is a very well made piece and looks more impressive in person. Larger then it looks. Fits in the receiver perfectly. It has the 10" drop and is installed on a '00 Ford Super Duty with a 4" lift and 35" tires.


I absolutely love it. I use it on my 2015 g m c 2500 with a 6-inch Lift. I also use it to pull my cargo trailer behind my 35 ft RV. Definitely recommend this product.


Fast, on-time as promised. Hitch will b fill my need to lower the ball for my car dolly.
Always great service from etrailer!


Ball mount is of great quality. The scale however is not sensitive below 500 # tongue weight and reads low with lighter trailers.

Great adjustability. Not accurate on 4000# trailer with 440# tongue weight.
David C - 09/18/2021


First of all the hitch looks awesome on the back of my jacked up F-350!
I ordered with the help of a sales rep who responded to my questions quickly, offered other suggestions, and was courteous! Nice to see customer service still exists!
The craftsmanship is awesome. However, I feel the hitch fit into the receiver and the lower mount are a bit sloppy.
I haven't towed with it yet but I feel with the ratings I won't be disappointed.
Five stars for customer service and the beauty of the hitch.

I sold the monster truck that required that hitch so I no longer own it. But it was a handy hitch.
Brent - 01/30/2018


A really solid example of well machined material. looks like a great product.

The hitch has proven to be very durable and adaptable for different towing configurations. Works great.
Vincent - 01/08/2022


Love it and I really like knowing the tongue weight.


Purchased about a year ago. I have a 2011 Tahoe and the hitch position is extremely high off the ground. I needed this hitch to get low enough to keep my boat closer to level. I used the bottom position. Since then I bought a new Tracker and was able to adjust it up 4 notches and not have to purchase a new hitch. It still looks like new and I firmly believe this will be the last hitch I ever have to purchase. I have received dozens of compliments on it.


I love this hitch! It is fully adjustable for use on either of my vehicles. I did make the mistake of ordering the 10" drop (thinking it would work on the most amount of different sized trucks) when I should have only ordered the 8" drop. I found out it was too long coming into a driveway when the bottom of the hitch drug across the curb. I had it shortened 2" and now no dragging. Used it for the first time with a 24' cargo trailer and could read the tongue weight on the scale. Perfect for balancing the load in the trailer and not overloading the hitch. It's a good looking hitch with excellent machining, and since it's made out of aluminum, it is not so heavy to be able to remove it easily. I would highly recommend this hitch to anyone with multiple tow vehicles.


Didnt use this.I returned this after realizing I needed to use a weight distribution hitch.

Thank you for your review. The weigh safe ball mount is not compatible with a weight distribution system. Weight distribution systems normally come with a ball mount shank that has the amount of you may need built in like part FA92-02-4315.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 03/11/2021


Very satisfied with the weigh safe product. The overall etrailer experience was great again, easy ordering and faster than expected shipping. I use this hitch on a lifted truck and the 10" drop is just about perfect for hauling utility trailers as they always seem to have the lowest couplers.


I was for a solid, well built hitch that had adjustable height since I lifted my truck. The pricing was good and delivery was quick to meet my timeframe. The hitch is absolutely fantastic. Since owning it, a couple of friends have also purchased the same for their trucks and we are all very happy with the hitch as well as the costing and service and would advise anyone looking for a quality product not to hesitate and to give a shot!


I was referred to e trailer by Keith Newman who has done business with you before and said your stuff was "good". Well, it was better than "good" it was "real damn good". Better built than i thought, very heavy duty, AND best of all, BUILT IN THE USA. by the way, it was shipped the same day I ordered and arrived two days earlier than expected. Thanks Andria

I like it a lot, I use it as needed, and it works well. I am very happy with the product.
Sonny E - 01/30/2018


After the sale is where companies earn their keep ! After receiving the WS10-2 drop hitch with a weight scale I noticed the scale had a 75 pound offset without weight being applied. Not only did etrailer replace , they returned the defective free of charge and since the price of the WS10-2 dropped in price do to a sale since my purchase etrailer refunded $46.00 .
Several orders previous with etrailer have been above excellent without defects but when I had one they "walked the talk" ! Thank you etrailer


Great item. I like knowing the trailer tongue weight, now I know for sure.
On light weight hauls the hitch does rattle some and not sure how to solve this.

  • Height of Shank on the WeighSafe Ball Mount part # WS10-2
    If you had the WeighSafe Ball Mount part # WS10-2 installed in the rise position it would measure 14 inches from the top of the hitch opening to the very top of the shank of the ball mount. Basically you would need to measure from the top of your hitch opening to your tailgate when folded down. If that dimension is more than 14 inches you wouldn't have to worry.

  • Weigh Safe Drop Ball Mount Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 6 inch Lift
    For as much of a lift as you have and the height of your truck tires considered I would recommend going with the 10 inch drop Weigh Safe ball mount # WS10-2. That being said it really depends on the height of your trailer hitch tube from the ground to the top of it compared to the height of the coupler lip on the trailer you plan to tow. The difference between those two numbers is the amount of drop you'd need.
