Can Weigh Safe Ball Mount With Scale Be Submerged To Launch Boat?


Are these hitches waterproof? One of the things i tow is a boat. I am interested in this hitch, but i dont know if the scale would be ruined if it was submerged underwater when i load and unload the boat in the water. Thanks for your time!

The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2-1/2" Hitch - 8" Drop, 9" Rise # WS8-25 is made from a solid block of T6 billet aluminum so it is rustproof by material not finish. The tongue weight scale is sealed so you don't need to worry about water. You can submerge this ball mount without any issue. I confirmed this with the manufacturer for you.

I recommend the Locking Dual Pin Assembly and Hitch Pin Set for 180 Hitch and Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mounts - Keyed Alike # WS06 to secure your ball mount to your hitch and give you same key compatibility. I also suggest the Locking Dual Pin Assembly Dust Cover for Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mounts # WS08 for your application.
