Weigh Safe: The Only Trailer Hitch with Built-in Weight Gauge 

A lot can go wrong when you’re towing. One of the main reasons for swerving or losing control is that the weight distribution is off. This is why tongue weight is always something you want to know before you go! If you’re a veteran of towing, you know that the weight on the tongue, (the forwardmost portion of the trailer that connects to the hitch), should be no more than 10%-15% of your fully loaded trailer weight. With Weigh Safe hitches, you’ll know your tongue weight as soon as you hook up! Best of all, you don’t need to drag out the bathroom scale and know calculus! Read on to learn more about the only trailer hitch with a built-in weight gauge: Weigh Safe Trailer Hitches!

Tongue Weight and Towing Safety  

If you’re thinking that measuring tongue weight (TW) is overkill or, “what’s the worst that can happen?”; you’re in the right place. When it comes to towing safety, it’s all about having an even distribution of weight. If the tongue weight is too light, your trailer could sway and be hard to control. When the tongue weight is excessive, then the towing vehicle will be hard to handle. You could experience problems with steering, getting traction, and even braking with too much pressure on the hitch. Either way, it can be an accident in the making.    

World’s First, and Only Trailer Hitch with a Built-in Weight Gauge

Weigh Safe makes the ONLY hitch on the planet with a built-in scale that accurately measures tongue weight. The built-in gauge measures and displays your tongue weight so that you can ensure it is always in a safe range for optimal towing: 10-15% of your gross trailer weight. ⁠No need to invest in a separate weight gauge or improvise with a bathroom scale. Who has time to mess with all that? You want to get on the road! The Weight Safe hitch will let you know your tongue weight instantly!
