Review of Weigh Safe Accessories and Parts DB8-2


Today we're going to be taking a look at the replacement shank for your Waysafe for 180 hitch 2-ball mounts. This one is going to replace the shank that came standard with your Waysafe WS8-2 or 180 hitch TB8-2 2-ball mount. The shank is going to slide into the receiver tube of your hitch and then this portion right here is going to provide the attachment point for your hitch ball mount platform. You'll notice that it has multiple mounting holes that allow you adjust the height of the platform. The hitch pin holes will accept a standard 5/8-inch diameter pin to secure the unit inside your hitch. Two pin hole locations allow for you to choose whatever one works best for your application. This can be used in the drop or the rise positions to ensure a more level towing set up. It is constructed of a rust-proof aluminum construction.

It's made right here in the U.S.A. It is designed for a 2-inch by 2-inch trailer hitch receiver. The maximum gross towing weight with this unit is 10,000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight capacity is 1,500 pounds. If you are using it in the drop position and you have your platform at the lowest setting, it is going to give you a maximum drop of 8 inches. That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of that ball mount platform. If you are using it in the rise position with the platform at the highest setting, that is going to give you a maximum rise of 9 inches and it's going to feature an incremental height adjustment of 1 inch. Please note that the maximum gross towing weight is achieved when the shank is used with the 2-5/16 inch diameter hitch ball that came standard with your Waysafe for 180 hitch ball mount. That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement shank for your Waysafe for 180 hitch 2-ball mount..
