What You Need to Know Before Buying a 6-Inch Drop Hitch

Looking for a 6-inch drop hitch can be intimidating. It is especially true if you have never bought a hitch before because there are a lot of hitches in the marketplace and you are not sure which one will do what you need it to do. You are not even sure if there are things you should be asking when you buy the hitch. However, there are a few things you should know before you run off and buy a hitch. Knowing a few things will help you make good decisions when towing items behind you or when bringing them somewhere you need to go.


One of the first things you need to understand is that you need to weight your cargo in order to avoid accidents and getting into trouble. It seems like common sense however most people like to skip this step because it is difficult to weight cargo. It used to take a very difficult to set up and involved a bathroom scale. Most people elect to skip the step just because it is difficult to step up. Unfortunately, the idea has caused a lot of problems. You can see evidence of this from the info-graphic we made about the problem below.

What is the answer here? The answer is to get your cargo weighed every time you decide to haul cargo. Obviously, the you want this to be as quick and painless as possible. You could try driving to one of those industrial stations we see on the road, but that it is a catch-22. If you are supposed to weigh your cargo before driving then how can you drive to a station to get your cargo weighed. The other option is to try to get someone who has an industrial scale to weigh it for you. You still run into our previous catch-22, however. 

What is the best answer? The hitch has to do the work for you. it would be best if the 6-inch drop hitch would weight the cargo for you as you load it up. You would have a very strong idea of how much you are actually carrying and how much your truck or other vehicles can handle. You avoid trailer sway or other problems associated with overloading your tongue, hitch, or vehicle with too much weight. Luckily there are products that can do that such as Weigh Safe's 6-inch drop hitch. You just have to load your cargo as normal and a scale tells you if you have overloaded yourself.
