Reese Replacement Chain Kit for Uplift Bracket for Weight Distribution - 55630

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (37 Customer Reviews)


It's a chain with a u-bolt, washers and nuts. Not much to go wrong here.
Chain still working just fine supporting 1400lb WD bars using simple flip-up brackets.

More importantly, it saved me the hassle of waiting for someone at the local [...] store to cut a chain to length and sorting through the messy nightmare of tiny loose nuts and bolts, also known as the small parts bin.


My order was received just as expected. The resource of etrailer combined with their customer service is always top notch.


Easy order on line process. Fast delive ry.


Apears to be better quality than original with heavy rust preventive plating.


I actually purchased a weight distribution hitch and UPS destroyed the box and lost the chains and u-bolts. I called etrailer and they sent a replacement right away and I got them in time for my next camping trip. The hitch works great and the customer service was excellent.


Needed new chains for my Reese weight distribution bars. I was given the two bars but they were lacking the chains.

Fine, no issues.
Jim H - 07/17/2015


I recently had my travel trailer in a national repair center for a fresh water pump issue. While there my Reese Dual-Cam system was removed by one or more unknown people. They unbolted and removed everything. The center replaced my system but the chain that was eventually bought did not look right. I ordered a set from e-trailer. They arrived promptly and will be installed on my trailer in the morning. Great web site, great service. I just hope I don't have to go through this mess again!


Wow customer service with Maddie was excellent,I wasn't sure about My replacement she helped me get the correct replacement part now I'm ready for the road had new part within 24hrs price was great, customer service excellent!!!!


I need ONE weight distribution bar and etrailer sells them separately while no one else would. Shipped as promised, Free! They did everything they said they would and I would buy from them again and again! They exceeded my expectations by a mile!


I placed my order late on 03-04-13. I live on the eastern shore of Md and received the items (with no extra shipping charges) on 03-11-13. I am pleased with the items I received and the amount of time it took to receive them from the time they were ordered.


The products were exactly what I wanted and of the best quality available. I cant say enough about the customer service folks at, there was a question about my difference in shipping and billing address' and they called me (on a Sun.) to make sure it was straight and got my order right out. Grade A+


The product was exactly what I ordered. Was very nervous about receiving the product in a timely manner as I needed to move the camper right away. All three Representatives that I had dealt with at etrailer went above and beyond to make sure everything went smooth for me. I would definitely use etrailer again in the future for my camper needs. Thank you Madison, Chelsea, Reesa.


Quality Parts. Don't be misled and think you can buy the same U-bolt at a home center. These U bolts have the same strength as the chain. Don't trust your expensive cargo to cheap parts. In this case you get what you pay for...


Chains arrived quickly, and are holding up great after a year!


Third time ordering items from etrailer. Very fast, efficient service. Items shipped within two hours of ordering. Can't beat that.


This is my second order from eTrailer. I couldn't be more pleased. the order went through easily and was shipped within one full business day. Thank you.


Great product, excellent service and fast shipping. As always a pleasure to do business with.


Excellent product, fits good. Order was placed and received five days later.
Good job Etrailer.


Exact replacement for trunion spring I lost on the road. I couldn't believe how quick and easy it was. Thanks.


Thought new trunion bars should have included the chains.


First class service. Excellent equipment! Highly revommended


My Order Was Delivered Today I Want To Thank You For A Quick Delivery It ONLY 3 Days.The Packaging Was Very Good And All My Items Were IInside And Safe Thanks

Arrived in first shipment was correct.

  • Replacing 600 lb Pro Series Weight Distribution Spring Bars with 1,200 lb Spring Bars
    The spring bars are interchangeable on the Pro Series round bar weight distribution systems. The 1,200 lb replacement spring bars that you will need are part # 58338. This is a single bar, so you will want to order a quantity of 2. These bars will work with the frame brackets on the trailer and they will insert into your existing weight distribution head. If you would like replacement chain kits, you can use part # 55630.

  • Is U-Bolt from Reese Chain Kit # 55630 the same Size as U-Bolt from the Reese Chain Kit # 3216
    Yes, the u-bolts from the Reese Replacement Chain Kit # 55630 are the same size as the Reese Replacement Weight Distribution Chain Kit # 3216. Both of the u-bolt sizes are 3/8 inch.

  • Replacement Parts for Pro Series 1,200 Pound Round Bar Weight Distribution Hitch
    Based on the prices of all of the parts combined it would cost you less to go with the complete system, # 49570. For the sway control you will need # 83660. If the trailer is over 6,000 pounds or longer than 25 feet then you would need to add a second sway control unit, # 83660.

  • Can Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with Sway Control be Used for Weight Distribution Only
    If you are looking to only use the weight distribution portion of the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with Sway Control, # RP66083, you can just use the chain kit that came with the system. All you will need to do is remove the chain, U-bolt, nuts and washers from the sway control cams and reinstall them at the ends of the trunnion bars. I have attached a picture to illustrate their locations. If you are looking for a replacement chain kit, you can use Reese Replacement Chain Kit...

  • What Replacement Parts Are Available for Reese V5 Weight Distribution Hitch
    The Reese V5 is an old system that has been discontinued, but you can use the replacement lift bracket # RP21501 to replace your old brackets. If you need new chains for the lift brackets you can use either part # 55630 or part # 3216. These parts have been confirmed as a fit from Reese. Unfortunately there are not spring bars available that can be used with the old V5 system, so if the bars are lost or damaged beyond repair you would then need to look into a new weight distribution system....

  • Drop Shank Recommendation for Reese Weight Distribution When 5 inches of Drop Is Needed
    To tow your trailer level you will need to go with a drop shank that will put the ball height at the correct height. Since you need about 5 more inches of drop you would need the part # RP3344. If your trailer does not allow for the Dual Cams of your # RP66083 to attach you could replace the chains of the system with the part # 55630. The U-bolt will attach directly to the spring bar and then will get connected to the chain hangers on your frame.

  • Can the Pro Series RB3 Weight Distribution System Be Upgraded from 750 Pound TW to 1000 Pound TW
    For the Pro Series RB3 Weight Distribution System # PS49582 to be an effective weight distribution system for your Cherokee travel trailer, you will want to upgrade the spring bars to the # PS58441 round bars. These bars are rated for use with a trailer tongue weight up to 1,000 pounds. The 750 pound tongue weight spring bars that come with the # PS49582, will not work to effectively distribute the tongue weight of the Cherokee trailer. As long as your trailer's loaded and ready to tow...

  • Parts Needed to Install Weight Distribution System on Second Trailer
    To use the Pro Series RB3 on two trailers would only require you to get a second set of spring hangers. For that you would want the part # RP6637 and for the chains part # 55630.

  • Choosing a Weight Distribution Hitch for 24-Foot Trailer with Varying Tongue Weight
    The key to selecting a weight distribution system is to choose one based on your measured tongue weight. It is important that the system be "tuned" to your trailer tongue weight to ensure that you choose one whose spring bars are stiff enough to provide the desired redistribution of tongue weight onto the tow vehicle's front axle, but not so stiff that the result is jumpy or erratic handling from the trailer. Ideally you want to choose a system rated such that your actual loaded trailer...

  • Can Pro Series Weight Distribution System be Upgraded to Work with 1,200 lb Tongue Weight Trailer
    I have a solution for you, but Pro Series does not offer spring bars high enough for the tongue weight of your trailer. So what we can help you do is replace the head of your system with the part # RP58167 so that you can go to a higher rated spring bar like the # RP58369 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,500 lbs which would be perfect for your 1,200 lb tongue weigh setup. For chains and u-bolts for the springs you also would want the part # 55630 and you'd be set.

  • Replacement 600 Pound Reese Weight Distribution Trunnion Spring Bar with Cam End
    Based on your measurements Replacement Trunnion Spring Bar for Reese Weight Distribution System - 600 lbs TW Item # RP23227 is indeed the correct replacement spring bar for your system. For the chain, u-bolt, nuts, and washers to attach the spring bar to the lift bracket you will need # 55630. And if you need the lift bracket too it is # RP21501.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch System Toy Hauler Travel Trailer With Tongue Weight 250-800LBS
    I recommend getting the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66082. This system is rated for trailers up to 10,000lbs with a tongue weight of 200-600lbs allowing you to tow your trailer both dry and loaded with your gear. When you load your toy on the front you will then be able to use 2 of the Trunnion Spring Bars # RP66009 with a Chain Kit # 55630 for each bar. These bars will increase the hitch capacity to 12,000lbs with a 600-1,200lb tongue weight range.

  • Can the Pro Series Weight Distribution System with 750 Pound TW Be Upgraded to 1,000 Pound TW
    You can use the Replacement Round Bars for Pro Series Weight Distribution System, 1,000 Pounds # PS58441 to increase the capacity of your Pro Series Weight Distribution System with Friction Sway Control # PS49582 to a 1,000 pound tongue weight. I recommend checking your trailer's loaded and ready to tow tongue weight to ensure that the 1,000 pound tongue weight will work well for you. If the chains from your current system are in good condition, you can use them with the # PS58441 spring...

  • Replacement Parts and Sway Control for Reese Weight Distribution System
    When you say your Airstream trailer has a GVWR of 8,500, I assume you mean GTW or gross trailer weight. Typically a trailer's tongue weight is about 10 to 15 percent of the GTW. Based on your trailer's GTW, your tongue weight should be around 850 lbs. If so, the trunnion bars you have (rated for a tongue weight of 600 lbs. - 1,200 lbs.) will work for you. There is no kit containing all the parts you need, however you can purchase them separately. You will need the lift brackets with handle...

  • Can Reese SC Weight Distribution Spring Bars be Converted to Use Chain Hanging Brackets
    Technically yes, you could use a chain, # 55630, on a Reese SC spring bar. But you will also need the lift brackets or chain hangers. For the lift brackets you would need # RP21501 sold in quantities of one. Or you can get a pair with a lift handle # RP6637. Another option is to use chain hangers that bolt to the sides of the frame. For a set use # RP58305.

  • Determining Old Weight Distribution System Manufacturer and Replacement Part Options
    It does look like an old style Reese system. We have seen a few of these and they are similar to the newer version # RP66084. The part pictured has been replaced with the newer dual cam system yet they function in a very similar way. They no longer make that system, so I recommend upgrading to the newer system if you need replacement parts as those parts are no longer available. I've attached an article on weight distribution systems to further assist if you want information on how...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Car Hauler that Will See 400 to 700 lbs
    For a weight distribution system that would have a tongue weight range that fits between 400 and 700 lbs the part # RP66541 would be the best option. It has a tongue weight range of 400 to 800. You should note that you will have to set the system for each of the tongue weights that the trailer will see so that it works properly. For a 2 inch ball you would want part # A-90 and for a 2-5/16 inch ball # 19286. For additional frame brackets you would need the part # RP6637. For chains you...

  • Replacement Trailer Bracket for Reese Sway Bars 22210
    The Replacement Head for Reese Weight Distribution System - Trunnion Bar # RP58167 is confirmed to go with your sway bars. There are two possible sway bar styles and that will impact the brackets needed. If you have the tapered bars that are straight at the end then you can use the # RP6637 for chain use with Reese Replacement Chain Kit # 55630 but the SC system brackets are no longer available. If you have the bars with the curve like # RP66009 then you will use brackets # RP6637...

  • Parts Needed to Use Reese Trunnion Weight Distribution on Another Trailer
    Yes, you can get the individual parts of Reese weight distribution system # RP66542 needed to use the system on a second trailer. First, you will need the frame brackets that mount on the trailer frame. For both brackets I recommend # RP6637. You can also add new chains with # 55630 but you will need to order 2 of them. This would be if you have to also use different bars. For the bars you can use the same ones that you have if the tongue weight of the new trailer is 600 to 1,200 pounds....

  • Lift Brackets for an Older Reese V5 WD System Rated for 750 lbs
    The replacement lift bracket that you will want to use with your Reese V5 Weight Distribution (WD) system is part # RP21501. If you need new chains you can use either part # 55630 or part # 3216. My contact at Reese confirmed these fits. When choosing a WD system for your towing setup you will need to make sure that the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your setup falls in the middle of the Tongue Weight (TW) range of your WD system. You can find your TTW by adding the TW of your fully loaded...

This bars attach to the trailer through the Chain # 55630 to the Lift Brackets # RP6637. You can also opt for the Reese Dual Cam High-Performance Sway Control # RP26002 to keep your trailer tracking straight and reduce sway on the highway. You will need a hitch ball with a 1-1/4" shank.

  • Replacement Parts for Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System
    Based on your photo, it appears you have the dual cam system of the Reese Strait-Line. I researched your trailer to find a GVWR of 5895. Based on this, we can make some calculated assumptions on the tongue weight. The tongue weight of a trailer is typically 10 to 15%, so that would put you at 590 to 885 lbs. That will make the correct system the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control # RP66084. For the replacement parts you will want the following: Replacement Head...
