Recommended Weigh Safe Ball Mounts for 2-1/2-Inch and 2-Inch Hitches


I have a new 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD. Im looking at getting the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2-1/2inch Hitch - 8inch Drop, 9inch Rise. Is it your opinion this one would best for me. Also, I would like to get the same product for my 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500. Which one would work best for me as well as fit a 2inch shaft

It is hard to beat the convenience of having a tongue weight (TW) scale built-in to your ball mount. Their aluminum construction means no powder-coat finish to chip off and no worries about rust.

The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount with Built-In Scale # WS8-25 will fit the 2-1/2-inch hitch on your 2016 Silverado 2500 and give you a height adjustment range in 1-inch increments from 9-inches of rise down to 8-inches of drop.

For your 2012 Silverado 1500's 2-inch hitch you can select one of the Weigh Safe adjustable ball mounts shown on the linked page. Four of the items shown include the TW scale, such as # WS6-2 which provides height adjustment from 7-inches of rise down to 6-inches of drop.

You'll want to make sure that your chosen ball mounts have the correct rise/drop you need to keep your hitched trailer level plus the required towing capacity for the trailer weight you're towing.
