NEW! 8in Drop Hitch, 2.5" Shank

Catalog Item # 117331

The Weigh Safe Drop Hitch effectively measures the tongue weight of your towing load, ensuring that your vehicle is balanced properly and is safe to tow.

Injuries, fatalities, and loss of property are all preventable by ensuring proper tongue weight. Pressure on the stainless steel tow ball sends a reading to the built-in scale that measures tongue weight (lbs.) GMC guidelines for proper towing states tongue weight should be no less than 10% of gross trailer weight (GTW) and no more than 15%. For example, tongue weight for a 10,000 pound full-loaded trailer should be no less than 1,000 lbs. and no more than 1,500 lbs.

Note: Weigh Safe max tongue weight is 1,500 lbs. (2” shank) and 2,200 lbs.(2.5” & 3” shank). Do not tow if your reading is in the red zone.


  • Once your trailer coupler is attached, the stainless steel tow ball will press down on a piston which will pressurize the hydraulic bed of oil which sends a reading to the scale accurately indicating your tongue weight.
  • For safe towing, tongue weight should be between 10-15% of the gross trailer weight.
  • Since 1975, trailer-related fatalities have climbed to 19,582. Since 1988, reported injuries have surpassed 800,000 and over 2 million vehicles, boats, trailers, and other property have been damaged or totaled.
