Introducing the FLASH™ ISBM (Integrated Scale Ball Mount) by Fastway®
PROVO, Utah - Fastway Trailer Products announced the release its newest addition in the FLASH Ball Mount line, the Integrated Scale Ball Mount or ISBM. The most exciting feature of this new product is the integrated tongue weight scale that helps trailer owners reach proper tongue weight for each trailer load, improving tow performance and increased safety.
The ISBM is made with aircraft-grade aluminum and weighs less than half of comparable steel ball mounts which makes carrying, adjusting and installing the ISBM easy and comfortable. While lightweight, the ISBM's frame boasts a max tongue load of 1,000 lbs. and a max trailer weight of 10,000 lbs.
Tongue weight should be 10-15% of the total trailer weight. The ISBM makes it easy to know if the trailer is loaded properly by showing how much of the trailer weight is on the tongue, or where the trailer meets the ball mount. With a properly balanced load, drivers can enjoy improved steering, better braking control and reduced trailer sway.
The ISBM is pioneering a new way of weight measurement by using a mechanical spring in the mount. Jason Harper, one of the engineers that helped design the ISBM, explained the reasoning as, “a simple design that helps bring durability, longevity and peace of mind.”
