Thumbs up Weigh Safe Trailer Hitches

Just stumbled upon this product today while watching a Fast Lane truck episode.

It's apparently a tongue weight gauge built into a hitch ball.

Expensive, but might be nice to have. Could even pay for itself, buy one and except donations for others to check their weights.

I bought a Sherline scale, about $130 that weighs at the power jack stem. It gives me a close enough measurement.

With all the fancy options truck manufacturers are coming up with now they should develop technology to determine the weight on the hitch and in the bed.
