A weight safe hitch can and will increase your productivity. It might not make sense yet but we will explain to you why it is usually always a good idea to have one of these products in your inventory. We will also explain how it makes you more productive over time. If you have not considered getting one of these items then you should consider them because they will help you immensely and they will even help you stay out of trouble.
A person has to haul things for a variety of reasons. Sometimes that reason is work. If people know that you own a truck and a hitch then they are likely to ask you to help them move things around. Most truck owners know this or quickly realize this when they buy their first truck. Many people think that because a friend or family owner owns a truck then that means that they, the friend or family, should be able to commandeer the truck and, sometimes, the owner as well if they need to do something. If you have a project that you have been meaning to work on and be productive at doing then this might be a problem. The idea is to get the job done quickly and then get back to what you were doing.
If you have never used a hitch to tow something before then you might think this is no big deal. It is very easy to assume that you just hook the two parts together and drive away. However, there are some safety precautions that people should keep in mind. One of these safety precautions is how much you are towing. Granted, there are a plethora of people who just do not weigh their cargo and drive off hoping for the best. Yet, this is a dangerous thing to do and it could kill you, your family members, pedestrians, and other drivers on the road. Overloading a hitch is a very bad idea but people still do it. All because they do not want to take the extra time to weigh their cargo.
The honest answer is that weighting your cargo is, sometimes, a very difficult thing to do and it can be a long process. There are a few methods to do it including one that uses a bathroom scale which, obviously, has a certain weight limit after which it is no longer accurate. The setup to use a bathroom scale is also quite involved which is why many people skip the method and drive without knowing how much they are towing. The other options are knowing someone who has an industrial strength scale for this purpose and/or going to a scale. Both are somewhat of a catch-22 because unless the equipment is on your property then there you will have to drive to the sites to have it done. It causes danger for you, your family, and other people.
If you want to be more productive and make it easier for you to weigh your cargo then you get something like a Weigh-Safe hitch. The hitch allows you to load your cargo as usual but, instead of leaving you high and dry, it gives you an accurate measurement of how much your cargo weighs. The built-in scale on the hitch tells you if you are overweight or underweight which protects you from having the dangerous condition called trailer sway. Therefore, not only are you more productive because you can get the job is done faster but you are actually safer as well. You get back to what you were doing before you had to do the extra job and you become more productive on two jobs instead of one.
