PART NUMBER # AU-WSUN-2HOW BALL WEIGHT AFFECTS YOUR VEHICLEThe ball weight is the static force the trailer tongue exerts on the hitch/tow ball. Proper trailer ball weight improves the vehicle and trailer towing experience by improving performance.Not enough ball weight or force on the hitch/tow ball causes an increase in trailer sway from side to side, making it difficult to control. Conversely, too much ball weight or force on the hitch/tow ball could overload the rear tyres of the towing vehicle, pushing the rear end of the vehicle around.This could also negatively affect the vehicle handling. Performance is impaired as you might not be able to go around corners and curves properly, and your vehicle may not stop quickly enough when you press the brake pedal.This Weigh Safe hitch ball has an easy-to-use, built-in scale that measures your trailer’s tongue weight every time you tow. If the scale indicates that your tongue weight is too low or too high, you can adjust it before you head out so that you can complete your journey with peace of mind, knowing that your setup is safe. Stainless steel construction resists rust and corrosion.
