    Built-in Tongue Weight Scale

    How it Works

    What is tongue weight and why is it important?

    Tongue weight (TW) refers to the weight that the fully loaded trailer exerts downward on the hitch ball of the tow vehicle. Tongue weight is typically 10 percent – and should not exceed 15 percent – of your gross trailer weight. For example, a 10,000-lb trailer should have a tongue weight between 1,000 lbs and 1,500 lbs. You can adjust the tongue weight of your trailer by removing or adding cargo, or redistributing the load on the trailer. The tongue weight should not exceed the capacity of your tow vehicle, your hitch, or any of your towing components.

    Simply put, too little tongue weight can cause trailer sway and too much tongue weight can cause the tow vehicle to perform poorly. You may have difficulty steering, gaining traction, or braking when driving a setup that has too much weight pushing down on the rear of the vehicle. Ultimately, towing with an improper tongue weight can cause you to lose control of your vehicle or cause your trailer to separate from the vehicle.

    • Tongue weight scale built into the ball mount platform helps you balance your trailer
      • Promotes safe towing – lets you know if your load needs to be adjusted before you tow
      • Simple operation – automatically provides a measurement every time you couple your trailer
      • Efficient and hassle-free – eliminates the need for separate or commercial scales
    • 6061 T6 billet aluminum shank and mounting platform provide superior strength and durability
      • Solid block construction provides greater strength than hollow steel competitors while also maintaining a light weight
      • Rustproof for a clean finish that stands the test of time

    Maintenance:

    • Keep your trailer hitch clean and wash regularly with soap & water.
    • Make sure dust lock covers are always secured on all locks. For replacement dust covers, click here.

    Measuring Tongue Weight:

    • You must have your truck and trailer on flat, level ground in order for your tongue weight gauge to read accurately. Being on a slant or grade changes will compromise the gauge accuracy.
    • After loading the trailer coupler onto the tow ball, move the trailer frame back and forth with your foot to reduce friction. The tow ball and trailer coupler must be jounced to reduce friction and get an accurate tongue weight reading.
    • The Weigh Safe Gauge accuracy is +/- 1.25% over the full range of the scale, which is +/- 50 LBS accuracy.

    Hitch Height Setting:

    • For the best towing performance, adjust the height of your hitch to make the towed trailer level to the ground. To accomplish this, use a level (if on level ground) or measure the distance to the ground on the front and rear of the trailer frame and adjust the coupler height in order to make both measurements the same.
    • For tandem “independent” trailer axles, the height of your hitch does affect your tongue weight. If your trailer coupler is too high, the tongue weight increases and your back axle tires will receive more weight. If your trailer coupler is too low, your tongue weight will read less and increase the weight on the front axle tires. Without being level, your tongue weight will not read true and your tires will wear faster and unevenly.
