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.

Expensive but worth every penny. I have multiple trailers i tow and use different ball sizes and different hitch heights. This makes adjusting easy and prevents overloading. My lightest trailer is 400 lbs and my heaviest fully loaded is 18k. This thing does it all.



by:

Fit and finish is great. Polishing is like a finish part (not a hitch). I choose this hitch because: 1) 3" receiver, 2) All aluminum (except stainless balls & pins), 3) 10" drop, 4) With the 2 5/16" ball, 21,000 lbs.capacity, 5) Pin locks, 6) Tongue weight scale. Looks great on the truck.

Review from a similar Aluminum Tongue Weight Scale in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I Tow around 5-6 loads a month, this hitch worked great for about 4 months and the seal on the scale broke and filled the glass with oil. About two months after this happened the 2 5/16" ball had become a permanent part of the hitch... I've tried everything I can think of to get the pin out to switch to my 2" ball and haven't had any luck.


Comments
It is important to take the ball mount and balls out anytime when not being used and all of those moving parts should be greased often. There is only a 1 year warranty on the scale but there is a limited lifetime warranty on the ball mount, shank, and ball. Weigh Safe directly handles all warranties so I will email you their information.

Review from a similar Aluminum Tongue Weight Scale in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great hitch. Really needed the full adjustable height to handle the different trailers I own. But I did not want something hanging down below the hitch like you get with a flip over set up that would impact my ability to back up my steep drive if in the lowest position. This hitch was perfect. Plus the integrated locking pins allows me to keep it on all the time without extra locking devices.


Comments
After a year of use, it has been great

Review from a similar Aluminum Tongue Weight Scale in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I purchased this 10” drop hitch & love it!
I
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!


Comments
Very Happy. Had an issue with the scale, they promptly replaced it. Vey satisfied with the hitch!

Review from a similar Aluminum Tongue Weight Scale in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I needed a new drop down hitch for my 2020 Ram 2500. I searched several sites and when I found the Weigh Safe hitch I knew my search was over. This hitch looks great on the website, but it was even more impressive when I received it. This hitch is a beast! It will handle anything I will ever ask of it. The ball mount is adjustable to any height - I won't have to worry about unlevel trailers again like I did with my old standard 7" drop down hitch. Outstanding hitch, and well worth the investment.


Comments
Still the beast! Awesome hitch.

Review from a similar Aluminum Tongue Weight Scale in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Until you see this hitch in person, it's hard to appreciate the high quality look and feel. It looks like it was made for an airplane, forged aluminum, well engineered. I used mine just a few days ago to tow my new tilt trailer home. The scale only showed about 100# or so but the trailer was empty. It was easy to adjust for the correct height and that feature will be handy when we get a different horse trailer. I also bought the locking hitch pin. Wish I had know to get them keyed alike but not a big deal.

Tim was a big help in selecting this hitch and locking pin.


Comments
Used the hitch to haul some square bales of hay during the summer. The scale showed about 500 hitch weight which was approx 10 of the entire load. That was ideal, towed great! Im glad I bought it. Very satisfied.

Review from a similar Aluminum Tongue Weight Scale in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


The hitch is very well made. Solid pieces of aluminum were used to make this. I will admit I seldom actually look at the scale feature in the hitch unless I'm really loading my trailer and worry about tongue weight or the lack of. I mostly look at the scale to make sure I have enough weight so the trailer doesn't sway. It is a quick way to know. Once I have the height adjusted I haven't changed it. I've pulled some serious loads using my Ford Super-duty Diesel and this hitch has worked great.
