Video Transcript for Weigh Safe Ball Mounts DB6-2 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the replacement shank for your Weigh Safe from 180 hitch to ball mounts. This unit replaces the shank that came standard with your Weigh Safe WS6-2 or 180 hitch TB6-2 to ball mount. The shank portion slides into the receiver tube of your hitch and then the adjustable area is going to provide the attachment point for your hitch ball platform. Multiple mounting holes allows you to adjust the height. The hitch pin hole locations will accept a standard 5/8" diameter pin to secure the unit inside the hitch, 2 pin hole locations allow you to choose whatever one works best for your application. It can be used in the drop or the rise positions to ensure a more level towing setup.

It's constructed of a rust-proof aluminum construction, it's made right here in the USA. It is designed for a 2" x 2" hitch. Maximum gross towing weight is 10,000-lbs, maximum tongue weight is 1,500-lbs. If you're using it in the drop position with the platform in the lowest setting, it's going to give you a maximum drop of 6", that's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch to the top of your ball platform. If you're using it in the rise position, and have it at the highest setting it's going to give you a maximum rise of 7". Then it's got an incremental height adjustment of 1".

Please note that the maximum gross towing weight is achieved when the shank is used with the 2-5/16" diameter hitch ball that came standard with your Weigh Safe or 180 hitch ball mount. That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement shank for the Weigh Safe or 180 hitch to ball mount.

Ordered this drop hitch for the weigh safe hitch that I had originally got for my old truck which was a 3/4 ton. I now have a 1/2 ton and wasn't able to use my nice hitch until yesterday when I received the replacement shank. I actually needed it the second I got it in the mail and took a load of scrap metal to the recyclers. This is great because now if I get a bigger truck again, I can switch the hitches without having to remove the shanks from truck to truck. I can just leave my 2" in my 1/2 ton and the 2 1/2" shank in the bigger truck. Thanks again etrailer for your service. Finding the parts I need at a reasonable price and the prompt service/shopping is why I'm a continuing customer. Thank you!

Perfect size needed and quick delivery




by:

You offered just what I needed to adapt my existing hitch to the new trailer I purchased. My only other alternative would have been to buy the whole hitch assembly at a cost of $200 more than what I paid for the drawbar alone..




by:

A quality item received in good time. I would recommend etrailer to everyone.




by:

great to know what weight youve got hooked up




by:

Great product when you buy a new truck, great website, nice customer service department to help me match up my parts.

  • Weigh Safe Ball Mount Replacement Shanks, Anti-Rattle, and Ball Movement
    Hello and welcome back! There are numerous replacement shanks only for the Weigh Safe ball mounts such as # WS6-2. I have included a link to the various options for you. The shank for the WS6-2 is # DB6-2. Current pricing is available on its product page. Ball mounts are going to rattle, and adjustable ball mounts, being comprised of several pieces, can rattle more so. With that said the ball platform part of the Weigh Safe ball mounts is pretty secure. The 2 pins are of course a little...

  • Availability of Adjustable Ball Mount with 1-7/8 Inch and 2 Inch Hitch Ball
    I do not recommend cutting off the 2-5/16 inch ball portion from the dual ball unit included with the Weigh Safe 180 Ball Mount # LTB6-2. Modifying the ball in this manner would void the manufacturer's warranty and may negatively affect its integrity (not to mention it would be pretty difficult to do). While there isn't a two-ball mount kit available with the ball sizes you're looking for, you can use part # TB03, along with # TB01 and DB6-2 to custom make your own. This will give you...

  • Can the Ball Mount from the Weigh Safe # WS6-25 be Used with a 2" Weigh Safe Shank
    Since the ball mount from the Weigh Safe # WS6-25 measures the same as the ball mount # WS01 for 2" hitches you definitely can use it. The locations for the Locking Dual Pin Assembly # WS03 measures the same for both products as well. The only difference is that the gauge for the 2-1/2" ball mounts, part # WS01-5, goes up to 2,200 lbs while the gauge for the 2" ball mounts # WS01 only goes up to 1,500 lbs. I believe the exact replacement shank you are needing is part # DB6-2 which has...
