Video Transcript for Clevis Hook with Latch Review

AJ: What's up, everybody It's AJ with Today, we're going to be checking out some clevis hooks from Laclede. We have two different sizes, five sixteenths and three eighths right here. We're going to go ahead and use these on some safety chains for our gooseneck. Let's take a closer look.When choosing the right hook for you, you want to keep in mind the weight rating. See the one we picked today was the five sixteenths as a weight rating of 3,900.

And the slightly bigger one in three eighths has a weight rating of 5,400. So just keep that in mind when you're trying to choose what you're going to use it for. These hooks are made out of a grade 43 steel. When you're looking for something a little bit more than that, I can say that I've also working with the Titan chains or the CURT version of these hooks and they have a slightly higher grade rating on the steel. Plus, they're zinc plated.

So that gives you some other options to look at on our website.I've got it set up here to show you exactly what we're using. We have safety chains here going from our gooseneck. They're going to attach to our loops here. So which hook are we going to want to go with Now, the measurement on the hooks isn't for the hook part. It's actually for the clevis pin down here at the bottom.

So it says how big that is to work with what chains to work with. So this one's probably better for three eighths chains. We found that the five sixteenths one's actually going to be perfect for what we need today.I'm just going to try to install it. We pop that one Cotter pin out. And we're going to run it through the link of the chain and through the hook at the bottom.

We'll just set up this chain from the clevis pin through the other side. And then, we'll put in our Cotter pin. Now, once the Cotter pins in, you're going to want to bend these arms to both sides. That way it helps stay it in place. Just go ahead and try and bend it around the clevis pin just like that. Then can't pull the Cotter pin out and it's going to stay attached to our chain.Now, with the spring latch here, we're going to attach it to our loop. It's nice and attached to our safety chain loop. The hook's not too big. It fits in there nice. It's good and attached. Let's put some pressure on that spring latch to make sure. You can see even if it, for some reason, shifts around in your truck and the pressure goes on the latch, it's still going to stay there. It's not going to just push it open or pry it open like that. It wouldn't do that from me pulling on it. I have to actually give it a little bit of a force to push that in. Just to get it to attach or detach.Keeping all those things in mind though, the hooks are going to work the same as long as you pick the right one for you. They're in a step above regular steel hook because without that latch, you'd have it latched down. You could tighten down. And yeah. It'd be nice and tight and probably nothing would happen or you put it in those loops. But I'd always be afraid of any bump I hit would loosen it, loosen it, loosen it until it popped out. I don't like that, especially when you're towing something so heavy. You got that latch in there with these. You know it's not to pop out. The chain is going to be in the middle of it. And then, all those bumps, doesn't matter. It's going to pop around in here. Never going to come out. It's not going to come undone. So I like this and it gives me confident going down the road. That about does it for our look at the Laclede clevis hooks. Hope this helped.

Customer Reviews

Clevis Hook with Latch, 3/8" - 6495-401-04

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (16 Customer Reviews)


This is exactly the item I needed to complete the repairs to my trailer in making it road worthy for my upcoming cross country trip from Virginia to Arizona.


The pin in the hook cannot be removed: a clip in the pin is not detachable. That means that a tow rope with a loop in its end cannot be attached to this hook. I will have to replace the clip in the end of the pin with something else (thinking a long thin bolt) so that I can remove the pin when I need to attach the tow rope to the hook.


This product is exactly what I was told it would be. I will be using it in conjunction with a safety cable connecting the trailer to the boat along with the winch. Thanks for the awesome customer service! So knowledgeable.


Excelent product kept having problems with safety chains coming unhooked when I would back up these hooks have stopped that problem completely. Great quality. Exactly what I was looking for!!!


Need it for the hitch on our travel trailer. Exactly what we needed. Angela , in customer service, was very helpful. Part shipped quickly.


I bought these hooks because they have a safety clip. They are replacing the old ones on the safety chains on my trailer that are to small.


Exactly what I was envisioning when I ordered these. They work great and were easy to install.


Works great


Great products. Great prices. Fast ship ping.


Solid, durable, top drawer two hook. The real deal, not some whimpy part that you worry will fail at a critical moment.


Great product. Works extremely well.


great product and excellent service



It's a big heavy hook....


great hook


Perfect replacement for the one I have that is damaged!

  • Recommended Safety Chain Clevis Hooks for 6,500 Pound Trailer
    I recommend taking a look at the Clevis Hook with Latch # 6495-401-04. This 3/8 inch clevis hook has a working load limit of 5,400 pounds, which will give you a combined capacity of 10,800 pounds when using two. The capacity refers to the overall weight of the trailer (or whatever it is being used to pull). This will work very nicely for your trailer to provide hooks for your existing safety chains. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you can also check out.

  • Clevis Hook Recommendation to Fit Safety Chain Loops of 2017 Ford F-250
    The Clevis hook part # 6495-401-04 that you referenced is standard enough size that it would work well on the hitch of your 2017 Ford F-250. I attached a picture for you to check out that shows the dimensions of the opening. The post that fits through the links of the chain is 7/16 inch in diameter.

  • Comparing SWL And WLL For Clevis Hooks
    You will need to know what the diameter of the chains you have are and how much room you have in the link for a hook to be attached. It sounds like the 5/16 you mentioned is the diameter of the chain itself, and not the opening in the link. The Clevis hook, part # 6495-401-04 has a 7/16-inch diameter pin that goes through the opening in a chain link and has a working load limit of 5,400 lbs. The # 6495-301-04 hook also has a 7/16-inch pin, and has a working load limit of 3,900 lbs....

  • Recommended Clevis Hook for a Winch and Safety Chains
    I do have options for you but the Curt S-Hook with Wire Keeper part # C81820 is not going to be the best solution for your winch's cable/strap or safety chains. Instead, for the winch I recommend using a clevis hook like part # 6495-401-04 and for the safety chains I recommend using a clevis hook like part # 6495-301-04. The clevis hooks are a much better design for both your winch's cable/strap and safety chains. I have attached a review video of each clevis hook for you as well.

  • What Size Safety Chain Hook Will Fit Curt XD Class V Trailer Hitch # C15313
    Since we have the referenced hitch, Curt Class V XD Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15313, in stock in our warehouse I paid a visit there with the Laclede 3/8-inch Clevis Hook # 6495-401-04. This clevis hook easily fit the safety chain holes on the hitch and allowed the retainer to snap closed. This clevis hook has a working load limit (WLL) of 5,400-lbs so a pair would offer enough capacity for all but the heaviest trailers.

  • Safety Chain Hook Recommendation for a Hitch with Large Safety Chain Hoops
    Due to the thickness of the safety chain loops on your hitch your best option would be to go with a hook and keeper setup like the part # 1483-535-04. I attached a picture that shows the size of the opening on the hook. For just the hook you would want the part # 6495-401-04.

  • Safety Chain Hook Recommendation for a 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
    I have a clevis hook that may work. Take a look at part # 6495-401-04 . This hook has a working load limit up to 5,400 lbs and the pin that connects through the chain is 7/16 of an inch in diameter. The Curt Clevis Hook, # C81970 , has a 40,000 lb weight capacity and the pin that connects through the chain is just over half of an inch (.52 inches) in diameter. This hook was designed for heavy-duty applications such as gooseneck trailers, but it may work with your trailer if the chains...

  • Attaching Trailer Safety Chains to Large Chain Loops on 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 Factory Hitch
    That 2015 Silverado hitch and its safety chains loops have caused more than a few headaches but I do have a solution that has worked for others. A clevis such as # 6495-401-04 won't work but what I have recommended before is to route some safety cables through each loop and secure the 2 ends together with quick links such as in kit # RM-910648-12. Then you can attach the safety chains from the trailer to the quick links. Wear would not be an issue since the cables are more or less just...
