Easily Adjusts to Fit Your Setup

Towing trailers with different coupler sizes just got easier thanks to the 180 Hitch 2-ball mount. This ball mount features a 2" and 2-5/16" hitch ball on opposite ends of the ball mount platform. Switching to the opposite ball is fast and easy - simply flip over the platform, hitch-up, and go! Because both balls are contained on the platform, you won't have to keep track of separate balls that must be completely removed and installed each time you need to switch trailers.

Adjusting and setting up the 180 Hitch 2-ball mount to work with your specific trailer is easy. To switch hitch balls, unlock and pull out the dual pins and remove the platform from the shank. Next, flip the platform 180 degrees so that either the 2" or 2-5/16" hitch ball is on top. Then replace the platform and slide it along the shank to the desired height. Insert the dual pins and use one of the included keys to lock the pins in place. A dual-sided hitch ball with a 1-7/8" and a 2" hitch ball (TB03 - sold separately) is also available.

The 180 Hitch 2-ball mount can be used in either the drop or rise position to best suit your application.

Superior Aluminum and Stainless Steel Construction

From the first moment that you lay eyes on the 180 Hitch you'll see that you're getting a superior, well-made product. The 180 Hitch's shank and ball mount platform are made entirely of 6061 T6 billet aluminum, which is the same material that is used to build aircraft components, automobile frames, and freight liners. This type of aluminum is known for having superior strength while maintaining its light weight, which makes it highly desirable over hollow steel components. 6061 T6 aluminum is also rustproof, which means the 180 Hitch will maintain its clean, shiny, and impressive appearance for years to come. And the hitch balls are made of solid stainless steel, offering far greater protection against rust and corrosion than other steel hitch balls that are only painted or plated on the surface.

The 180 Hitch 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 ball mount 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.

I just received my 2.5" receiver 180 - 2 ball mount hitch, along with the hitch receiver lock. I could not be happier with this product. The manufacturing is flawless with a beautifully machined and finished end product. This thing is beautiful! It's a solid chunk of Aluminum with Stainless Steel hitch balls, and is machined so the ball mount may be reversed and stored to the back side of the drop. No more bashed shins walking around the truck! I couldn't ask for a better finish on this ball mount. I now have a beast of a hitch to put to work on my beast of a truck.


Heavy Duty Hitch. Easily adjustable.


Works great! Only thing is make sure you keep the key hole lubed after a few months of road grime it took a bit to get it to move again. Not the products fault it’s because I never lubed it. Thank you!


Fast shipping! Perfectly machined! Nice snug fit! Have not used it yet as I’ve only had it one day. But it fit right on the truck perfectly and will definitely make my life easier. Using it on a 2017 Ram 2500.


Nice tight fit, no extra rattles. Like the reversible fit to hide the ball when not towing.


The hitch is great, fit and finish is nice. It is great to have a hitch that I don't have to worry about rust! The other great feature is how you can store the ball assembly in the front of the hitch, so you won't walk into it!


2017 Dodge Ram 2500. Perfect fit. Looks great.


Great product. Works as advertised.


I received my hitch and locking pin in a timely manor. I have not used the hitch yet but seems to be very high quality and looks beautiful. I came packaged very well in two boxes. I would do business with the again.


Works great!


love the hitch tows like a dream, love that it has the built in lock, i only wish i got better directions on how to remove the balls. other then that i would urge anyone to buy this hitch


awesome product


Has been on my truck for over a year now and still looks good. Originally I was looking for a 6" drop but very happy that I decided to go with the 8" as I bought a new trailer that needs the extra drop. Saved me having to purchase another. Adjustments for height are quick and easy and the hitch is quiet when connected to a trailer and include good weight ratings Was definitely a good purchase.


Hitch works great and looks good too. I've had no problem hooking up my 8,000 pound 33' RV with it or flipping the ball mounts over and pulling my farm stock trailer with it. I would buy it again if I needed another one.


While shopping for a hitch for my Ram Power Wagon, the 180 8-inch drop hitch, and, was recommended by a friend. Added the 2 inch & 1 7/8 inch combo ball for towing my small boat trailer. Not only does it look great, it is extremely functional and efficient. I appreciate the seamless ordering process and on-time delivery. Will recommend to anyone. Thanks.


The all set up is great thanks to your advice and parts
My support team always in my tail LOL


I've been a tool maker for 30+ years and I can say that the machine work and finish are pretty good for a ball mount. My only concern is the aluminum pin that will be holding all the tongue weight. I would have liked for it to be stainless steel, but overall a solid drop hitch ball mount.


This hitch is the best one I’ve ever had period!! Billet Aluminum, never rust, and the ball locks on the hitch, so all is secure and I never have to take it off!!


Just bought a Silverado high country truck that sits up quite high. I have a 16 ft trailer that was almost dragging the back end with regular hitch. The LT8-25 hitch allowed me to drop the tongue down to level the trailer and to make my truck look good too


While I have not actually towed with the ball mount yet it is a high quality piece of equipment. The machining work is excellent as all the pieces fit together perfect. It feels more substantial than I anticipated. Like I said I have not towed with it yet as my tow vehicle is new and not broken in yet but I have no doubt that this ball mount will suit my needs and then some.


Perfect, and delivered very quickly


Really like this weigh safe 180 turn over ball mount. The material is excellent and makes a level trailer easy to accomplish. The integrated lock is great too. Just hope I never loose the key:)


Perfect , just as described


Product received via UPS on schedule. This ball mount appears to be a very
good quality product, although I wonder how long the rubber key cover will
weather the elements and remain attached to the hitch.


Once again etrailer hits a home run. Best price and super fast shipment. Have not used the hitch yet, but have no doubts that it will work just fine.

Thanks again from a returning customer.

  • Distance From Hitch Pin Hole To Closest Edge Of Shank On Weigh Safe 180 Hitch Ball Mount LTB8-25
    The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Balls - 2-1/2" Hitch - 8" Drop, 9" Rise - 18.5K # LTB8-25 was recently updated and has 2 hitch pin holes now.

  • Determining What Ball Mount Drop is Needed on a GMC Denali With a 8-1/2 In Lift and 37 in Tires
    You will need to measure both the hitch height on GMC Denali and the trailer coupler height of your trailer to determine how much drop will be needed for a ball mount. If you measured from the top of your trailer hitch to the ground and this number is the 27-/34 inches that you referenced, then you will only need the trailer measurement. Measure, on level ground, from the bottom of the trailer coupler to the ground. Once, you have this number, subtract the coupler height from the hitch...

  • Should Tow Vehicle and Trailer be Level for Towing
    Yes. When you are towing you want both your tow vehicle and trailer to be level. To help you achieve this it is best to make sure that you have the correct ball mount for your application. I have attached a helpful article that goes over how to do so. A lot of people like to use an adjustable ball mount, like the popular Weigh Safe 180 # LTB8-25 to make it a little easier. Another thing to help keep your trailer level is making sure that your Tongue Weight (TW) is 10-15% of the weight...

This aluminum, adjustable ball mount is designed to fit the hitch on your truck and features a maximum drop of 8 inches or a maximum rise of 9 inches.

  • Should I use 8 Inch Drop Ballmount or 10 Inch Drop Ballmount With 9 Inches Between Hitch and Coupler
    The general rule is to get a ball mount that sits a little higher because the tongue weight of the vehicle causes the ball mount to drop a small amount. You want to be within 2 inches of level with the trailer when towing. Since your 9 inches away from level, I recommend the Weigh Safe 8 inch drop ball mount part # LTB8-25 for 2-1/2 inch hitches to tow level with your trailer.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for Toyota Tundra with 6 Inch Lift
    With your Toyota Tundra rated to tow 11,000 lbs, you can get a ball mount that meets or exceeds that weight, but you will also be limited by whatever your trailer hitch receiver is rated for. The lesser of those 3 numbers is what your gross towing capacity will be. Based on your 6 inch lift, I'd recommend an adjustable ball mount with at least an 8 inch drop. If you have a 2 inch receiver, then I'd suggest the EZ Heavy Duty Adjustable Hitch with Combo Ball, # AM3298. This hitch has a...

    The 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount w/ Stainless Balls part # LTB8-25 comes with a lock and key for the ball platform but not the hitch pin.

  • Will the Weigh Safe Replacement Hitch Ball Platform w/ Built-in Scale Fit Old Weigh Safe 180
    As long as your 180 like the # LTB8-25 was manufactured after 2017 you will be able to use the Replacement Hitch Ball Platform w/ Built-in Scale for Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mounts for 2-1/2" Hitch # WS01-5. According to Weigh Safe, there was a manufacturing change at that time, so if it was made prior to 2017 the hitch ball platform will not fit and your only option would be a total replacement like the # WS6-25.

  • Recommended 2-1/2 Inch Adjustable Ball Mount for Use with Hitch Mounted Mud Flaps
    The best option we have for you is the Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount part # FA42-00-2825. This ball mount is made of aluminium which means it only weighs around 17 lbs. It has adjustments for 8" drop to 8" rise and it comes with both a 2" and 2-5/16" hitch ball. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the support gusset on this ball mount is 3". Therefore, you would need to measure from the outer end of your trailer hitch and subtract that from the above 3" measurement...

    The ball mount I highly recommend for your 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty that has a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver like the Curt # C15802 is the B&W Tow & Stow because of its high quality, stow-away design, and the fact it protects the ball mount platform from theft.
