Adjustable Ball Mount, 6" Drop 2" Shaft

Catalog Item # 82615

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 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 percent of gross trailer weight (GTW) and no more than 15 percent. For example, tongue weight for a 10,000 pound 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. Do not initiate tow if your reading is in the red zone

Features:

  • The ball sits on a piston that presses down on a bed of hydraulic oil that sends a pressure reading to the scale.
  • For safe towing, tongue weight should be between 10-15 percent of the gross trailer weight
