The Weigh Safe Drop Hitch is the one and only trailer hitch with a built-in scale that 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.
How it Works
What is tongue weight and why is it important?
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.
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.
Weigh Safe is the towing industry’s leader for Towing Peace of Mind. The Weigh Safe Drop Hitch, constructed of solid billet aluminum and stainless steel, is the only adjustable Ball Mount available with a built-in scale which provides an instantaneous readout of your vehicular tongue weight. This measurement allows you to adjust your load before you hit the road, resulting in a much safer towing experience. With weight ratings ranging from 10,000 lbs to 21,000 lbs our ball mounts are designed to exceed the needs of our customers. Our adjustable ball mount with built in scale is simple to operate and automatically provides a tongue weight measurement every time you couple your trailer, eliminating the need for separate and often difficult to operate commercial scales. When placed in your vehicle’s receiver and attached to your trailer, the weight of your trailer’s coupler will push down on the tow ball, which in turn pushes down on an internal hydraulic piston that rests on a bed of industrial hydraulic oil. When the piston applies pressure to the industrial hydraulic oil, the pressure reading is displayed on the high strength stainless steel gauge. This measurement will allow you to adjust your load to achieve the 10-15% GTW (Gross Trailer Weight) that is required to be placed on your ball mount while towing. This will help eliminate both Trailer Sway, the leading cause of towing related fatalities in the USA, and jack knifing which greatly reduces the ability of your vehicle to react while on the road. This ball mount includes both a 2” & 2-5/16” tow ball allowing it to be utilized with a wide variety of trailers and applications. The adjustable height allows you the flexibility to tow a variety of trailers with a variety of vehicles. With the built-in flexibility this will be the last ball mount you will ever own. This adjustable ball mount also may be used in the rise position up to the ball mount’s maximum height. Not towing? No problem! Just pull off the slider.
