The Weigh Safe 180 Adjustable Ball Mount.
The Weigh Safe 180 Hitch is an aluminum turnover adjustable drop hitch that features a 2 and 2 5/16 inch tow ball combo for quick and easy ball changes. The 180 is made of T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum and the ball is Chrome Plated Steel
The Weigh Safe 180 Comes fully assembled and while the ball itself is removable the 180 is designed so that you simply turn the ball assembly over to change ball sizes. Yes, the label will be upside down but that doesn't mean it's assembled improperly.
Note: When you receive your Weigh Safe 180, the ball combo will already come assembled inside of the slider and will be secured with a hitch ball pin/ball retaining pin (see image below). This pin is not meant to come out but on the rare occasion that you need to pull that out, you will need to use a 1/4-20 screw to stick into the threaded end of that pin. This gives you a "handle" or a leverage point so that you can pull that pin out. This is a very common question and misunderstanding among our customers, so please remember that the screw is only meant to be used as a "handle" to pull that pin out, it doesn't release the pin once you screw it in. It takes some effort to pull the pin out. Remember this is not necessary to switch ball sizes that is done simple by flipping the ball assembly.
Caution: An issue with a dual tow ball adjustable hitch is that the bottom tow ball could potentially hang so low that it scrapes, which is important to note when measuring what size drop length to purchase. Weigh Safe recommends at least 11” of clearance from the bottom of your loaded trailer hitch to the ground, which will give you some leeway for bumps and dips (click here for a video on how to determine what size hitch you should purchase). You also have to take that bottom ball into consideration. All Weigh Safe dual ball hitches measure 3” longer than the listed drop, for example, the 10” drop hitch is actually 13” in total length which means that if you have the slider at the lowest setting, your hitch is actually an additional 3” longer than that. So a 10” 180 drop hitch on the lowest setting is actually around 16” long. ( Purchasing a single Weigh Safe tow ball for a 180 hitch so you do not have that bottom ball hanging down does NOT work. Single tow balls are NOT compatible with the 180 hitch, only the ball combos are compatible.)
