Safety & Benefits
How big are these Weigh Safe boxes when you ship them out?
We have used a variety of boxes to ship these out, however, the one that seems to work the best is a 15x10x5 box. It is a snug fit but it gets the job done.
How heavy are these boxes with my Weigh Safe hitch in them?
A Weigh Safe hitch can weigh from anywhere between 19 and 22 lbs.
What should I know about Weigh Safe hitches before I go and buy one?
Weigh Safe has changed the design of their box at least three times. You should not expect to know how that box looks like before receiving it. How does this effect you? The way that the contents are arranged in the box are much different. If you do not make an effort to remember how things fit in the box then you might have trouble fitting it back in when it comes time to put it back. Why would you want to put it back? Maybe you are transporting it and need it off your vehicle for some reason. Perhaps you are letting someone borrow it. The point remains that getting it back in the box can be difficult.
A large portion of people were told that their trucks were going to need a 3 inch hitch. However, these people found out that their truck actually needed a 2.5 inch. The best thing to do is to check your specs before you order a hitch.
