Ensures Proper Towing
Pressure on the ball sends a reading to the built-in scale that measures tongue weight (lbs.)
GMC guidelines for proper towing states tongue weight should be no less than 10 percent of gross trailer weight (GTW) and no more than 15 percent. For example, tongue weight for a 10,000 pound trailer should be no less than 1000lbs. and no more than 1500lbs.
(Note: Weigh Safe max tongue weight is 1500lbs. Do not initiate tow if your reading is in the red zone)
The Weigh Safe Drop Hitch effectively measures the tongue weight of your towing load, ensuring that your vehicle is balanced properly and is safe to tow.
Injuries, fatalities, and loss of property are all preventable by ensuring proper tongue weight.
