Weigh Safe hitch ball application

This Weigh Safe hitch ball 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 peace of mind, knowing that your setup is safe.


A clamp-on adapter (WSUN-4 - sold separately) can be purchased separately to increase the diameter of this hitch ball to 2-5/16". The adapter allows you to easily switch hitch ball diameters so that you can tow trailers with different coupler sizes. If you know that you will be needing this function, we recommend that you purchase WSUN-1, which is this same hitch ball with the adapter already included.


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

Weigh Safe built-in tongue weight scale

The Weigh Safe hitch ball'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 hitch ball, 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 ball's built-in scale, measuring your tongue weight is as easy as coupling your trailer to your ball mount. Simply attach the hitch ball to your ball mount and hook up your trailer. 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.


Simple Installation

Installation of Weigh Safe hitch ball

Installing the Weigh Safe hitch ball is simple. Insert the shank of the hitch ball through the hole in your ball mount and thread on the included lock washer. Next attach the female fastening nut, which includes the scale, to the hitch ball shank. Then tighten down the female fastening nut.


Superior Stainless Steel Construction

This Weigh Safe hitch ball is constructed of solid stainless steel offering far greater protection against rust and corrosion than standard steel hitch balls that are only painted or plated on the surface. The stainless steel shank is heat treated to increase its overall toughness, shear strength, and tensile strength so that you can safely tow up to 10,000 lbs.


The Weigh Safe hitch ball 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 hitch ball 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.

The hitch is of great quality. I got it from etrailer quickly. It took several times of properly adjusting the scale during set up before I felt I was getting a correct reading. I am only towing 3000# so maybe it isn’t as sensitive with lighter tongue weights.


Comments
I don’t use it anymore. It was on my truck for a month, and I used it several times to weigh over that month. When I took it off the truck I noticed hydraulic fluid leaking where the ball meets the body of the hitch. I don’t know if it is still accurate. I was too lazy to see if it could be replaced under warranty, and I borrowed a friends for my weighing needs in the short term. I did enjoy it while I was using it.

I have only used the WSUN-2 once since I bought it. I needed to measure the tongue weight of a trailer I planned to tow with a hitch extension. It turned out to be at the maximum of the extension's rating so I didn't tow it. If I had not measured the tongue weight, I might have gotten into some safety issues with the trailer. The WSUN-2 works as advertised, is well made and appears to have fairly good accuracy.

So far, OK, but I haven't towed with this yet. The machined quality of the parts is 5 star. But... The bottom gauge replaces the nut. In many ball mounts, mine included, you cannot rotate this ball to tighten because there are raised I-beam like ridges on the top of the ball mount, and the flats of on the base of the ball fall between the raised portions on the ball mount. Instead, you have to turn the bottom gauge to tighten the ball to the requisite tightness. The problem is that this can (and probably will) leave the gauge facing in a direction where it will be unreadable. Then you are stuck with a choice of leaving the gauge looser or facing the wrong way. Weigh Safe should have provide a few washer shims of different thickness so that you don't have to trade off viewability of the gauge with the needed tightness on the ball.

It's great being able to know what the tongue weight is. Make loading the trailer easier and a whole lot safer.With this ball there's no need for a scale to weigh your tongue. Great deal

Review from a similar Hitch Ball w Scale in Trailer Hitch Ball


I purchased one of the first 'off the line' and was truly impressed, as the other reviewer stated, how the material and quality of workmanship stood out. I had great expectations....however.....in practice, the Weigh Safe mount with the built in scale didn't pan out. At hook up, it read my tongue weight perfectly. I do not recommend it's use with weight distribution hook ups including those with anti-sway. I have a Reese system that uses the trunnion design and a friction anti-sway.....which crushed the dial base and destroyed everything but the ball itself during a turn. This caveat to not use with W/D is now on the etrailer.com site where the experts answer questions, but I am dissapointed that the manufacturer didn'ttake the responsibility to have this in their marketing of the product up front. My recommendation for those with a W/D hitch purchase the separate tongue weight scale.

Review from a similar Hitch Ball w Scale in Trailer Hitch Ball


Nice ball, having two sizes in one unit is nice. Tongue weight gauge is nice but does not seem to respond to my tongue of 175 lbs. I've followed the directions and adjusted the setting as written but still does not seem to work as well as I thought it would.


Comments
For the scale to be of value you need to have a tongue weight of a couple hundred pounds or more, it just doesnt see light weight well. One of the great features is the ability to have two ball sizes in one. Id buy another if I needed one.

Review from a similar Hitch Ball w Scale in Trailer Hitch Ball


This is the fourth or fifth order I have placed with eTrailer. Each time the service has been prompt. The items have always been as advertised. This hitch scale is to help with loading a medium sized tractor and its attachments onto a trailer. Since the weight and position of the tractor on the trailer varies depending on the configuration of the attachments, this scale lets me get the tongue weight correct for different loads.

It makes setting up my trailer balance much easier, and considerably safer. My camper weighs 3620 pounds, and this will dial it in within the 9% to 14% tongue weight that I need:)

Super product and great company to do business with. They gave me ful credit on an upgrade as i originally ordered a wrong item. I have been hauling cars, boats and loaded cargo trailers behind a Cayenne so proper tongue weight is important

Review from a similar Hitch Ball w Scale in Trailer Hitch Ball


. I was not happy with the Weigh Safe Hitch Ball. It did not perform as I expected It was very difficult to put together and use when the trailer was attached. As a result, I was not sure how accurate the reading was since the installation did not go well. Right now it is just another hitch ball and not a functional scale.

Review from a similar Hitch Ball w Scale in Trailer Hitch Ball


Best way to go for real time convenient tongue weight measurement. Used to tow RV trailer using clamshell for larger tow ball size. Instructions very clear on setting “0” on the scale. Accurate to within 50 lbs. Need to check/adjust set screw for “0” prior to every tow as set screw does loosen after about 10 tows, but adjusting “0” very easy so minor inconvenience in exchange for knowing tongue weight which is a critical piece of information in setting up your rig for towing.


Comments
1yr later and 40+ RV tow trips later this product is performing flawlessly. Real time tongue weight is perfect for verifying tow hitch set up is within specs every time, all the time.

It does not give an accurate scale reading. We set it up like the directions say, and the scale is about 200lb. lighter than a brand new set of digital scales show. Not accurate at all.
