Expert Answers about Weigh Safe

  • Clearance Dimensions of Weigh Safe # WS6-2 Adjustable Ball Mount
  • Actually, some of the photos Weigh-Safe shows on their website are incorrect, and they're aware of the problem. The shank of the # WS6-2 has two hitch pin holes that are 3-1/8 and 4-1/8 away from the upright as shown in the photo I've edited for you.

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for Use with Weigh Safe Ball Mount
  • To remove the movement in the hitch between the Weigh Safe # WS6-2 and the hitch opening you would need to use a wedge style anti-rattle like the part # RM-061. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Ball Mount With 2.5 Inch Shank And 14,500 lb Capacity
  • Other than the Weigh Safe options of # TB10-25 and # WS10-25, I have one more option available for you. The Fastway Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 10" Rise - 18K # FA42-00-2925 will give you an 8-7/8 inch distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball. If you go with the Weigh Safe option, I recommend the Locking Dual Pin Assembly and Hitch Pin Set for 180 Hitch and Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mounts - Keyed Alike # WS06 to...

  • Can Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount Be Used With Weight Distribution System
  • There are no weight distribution systems designed to be able to use the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount, part # WS6-2. All weight distribution system require a shank and do not attach directly to a ball mount like the # WS6-2. Based on the numbers you mentioned I recommend a weight distribution system like part # C17322. This system has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 lbs. The system includes sway control that helps when facing high winds...

  • Why Doesn't Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount TB6-2 Have Locks and Scale
  • The part # TB6-2 doesn't have some of the features of the other adjustable ball mounts as it is the stripped down model at a lower price point. The version that does have the lock and scale is the part # WS6-2. This gives people the ability to only pay for the features they do want.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for Toyota Tundra with 6 Inch Lift
  • With your Toyota Tundra rated to tow 11,000 lbs, you can get a ball mount that meets or exceeds that weight, but you will also be limited by whatever your trailer hitch receiver is rated for. The lesser of those 3 numbers is what your gross towing capacity will be. Based on your 6 inch lift, I'd recommend an adjustable ball mount with at least an 8 inch drop. If you have a 2 inch receiver, then I'd suggest the EZ Heavy Duty Adjustable Hitch with Combo Ball, # AM3298. This hitch has...

  • The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Steel Ball part # TB8-2 is compatible with a variety of replaceable ball mounts, each of which will affect the maximum towing capacity of the receiver.

  • Recommended Weigh Safe Ball Mount With Scale For 7000 GVWR Trailer And 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • I recommend the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2" Hitch - 6" Drop, 7" Rise - 10K, # WS6-2. This ball mount has a 10,000 lb capacity and 2 hitch balls that come with the unit. It has a 2 inch ball and a 2-5/16 inch ball so you have the versatility to haul different trailer coupler sizes. If you want a smaller hitch with the nearly all of the same functions, I recommend the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2" Hitch - 4" Drop, 5" Rise - 10K, # WS4-2. This does...

  • Locking Hitch Pin To Match Key For My Dual Pin Weigh Safe Ball Mount
  • The Locking Dual Pin Assembly and Hitch Pin Set for 180 Hitch and Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mounts - Keyed Alike, # WS06, is a really convenient feature and both are very good quality locks. This kit is the only way to get the keyed alike feature. If you just want the locking pin and don't care if it isn't keyed identical, I recommend the Bulldog Lifelong Trailer Hitch Lock for 2" Hitches - Flush - 2-1/2" Span - Stainless, # BD580402. This lock uses a ball-bearing locking system to make it...

  • What Ball Mount with 10k Capacity Fits Weigh Safe Scale Ball
  • The Convert a Ball Ball Mount part # AMSC8 has a 1 inch diameter ball hole and a platform thickness of 3/4 inches. This has quite a bit of drop so for a ball mount with a more standard amount of drop the part # AMSC2 would work great. Both are rated for 10k trailer and 2,000 lbs tongue weight.

  • How to Choose the Right Ball Mount for a Horse Trailer
  • Your setup looks nice. It is difficult to guess measurements from a photo, but I can surely help to get your trailer more level. For safety and comfort, your trailer should always be as level as possible. A level trailer handles well, promotes even wear on your tires and minimizes the stress on your truck and your trailer. And, obviously, makes the horses' ride more enjoyable. The easiest way to achieve this is by selecting the ball mount with the correct rise or drop. With your truck...

  • How to Determine the Drop Needed for a Ball Mount on a 2017 Ford F-250 to Pull a Husky TS
  • When trying to determine what kind of Rise or Drop you will need to ensure that your towing setup is level there are 2 measurements that you will need to take; one for your hitch height and one for your coupler height. For your hitch height you will want to make sure that your 2017 Ford F-250 is sitting on level ground and then you want to measure from the bottom of the ground to the top of the receiver opening on your hitch. To determine your coupler height you will want to make...

  • Recommendation for Choosing Adjustable Ball Mount for 2017 Chevy Silverado
  • When determining the rise or drop needed for a ball mount, there are two measurements you will want to take. Starting with your 2017 Chevy Silverado, you will want to take a measurement from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver when the truck is on level ground. Then on your trailer, you will measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. If the hitch height on your truck is higher, you will need a ball mount with a rise, if the coupler measurement is higher, you...

  • Is Weigh Safe Hitch Ball with Scale Accurate and Does it Work with Low Tongue Weights
  • The Weigh Safe ball with built-in scale # WSUN-1 is the only one of its kind. It would not be the best for tongue weight on the lower end of the scale like you said. Tongue weight scale # 5780 would work a little better and it is easier to read. The gauges on either are calibrated correctly.

  • Can a Weigh Safe Ball Mount be Used with a Weight Distribution System
  • You will need to verify the tongue weight but if you are using weight distribution then its head, shank, and ball would be what is used so you wouldn't be able to use Weigh Safe ball mount # WS6-2. There are different ways to calculate tongue weight. A tongue weight scale, # 5780, is going to be the best. I have included a link to our help article on determining tongue weight and another on weight distribution for you.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD with 2-1/2 inch Hitch
  • For your hitch height of 22-1/4 inches the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS8-25 would be a great option. It basically would cover trailer heights between 14-1/4 inches and 22-1/4 inches which is going to cover nearly anything you'll need to tow. This comes with a 2 inch ball like you need plus a 2-5/16 inch ball which is the other (more) popular ball size for trailers. This would be your best option that would allow you to basically never need another ball mount.

The tongue weight scale is sealed so you don't need to worry about water. You can submerge this ball mount without any issue. I confirmed this with the manufacturer for you.

  • Will Hitch Pin in Locking Dual Pin Assembly and Hitch Pin Set # WS06 Fit a 3 Inch Wide Trailer Hitch
  • Yes, Locking Dual Pin Assembly and Hitch Pin Set # WS06 will fit the Weigh Safe ball mounts for 3 inch trailer hitch receivers and the hitch lock at 3-3/4 inches useable span should be enough for the lock to be flush with the outsides of the receiver (which should be about 3-1/2 inches wide or so). You can measure the outside of your 3 inch receiver to be sure.

  • How to Properly Calibrate Scale on Weigh Safe 2" and 2-5/16" Hitch Ball
  • To properly calibrate the scale on the Weigh Safe 2" and 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # WSUN-1, you will tighten the nut, which includes the scale, to the hitch ball shank with a 1-1/2 inch diameter wrench to 100 lb ft torque. Once the ball is attached with the nut, use the included hex/allen wrench and tighten the ball set screw until the gauge reads 100 pounds. After 100 pounds has been reached, back out set screw until the gauge has stopped decreasing. The Weigh Safe should now be properly...

  • 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...
