Video Transcript for Curt Safety Chains and Cables - Safety Cables - C80151 Review

Today were reviewing part number C80151 from Curt. This is a set of single hook coiled safety cables with an s-hook at one end and a loop at the other. Theyre made of braided stainless steel. I dont know how closely you can see that, but its heavy duty stainless steel. The s-hook itself is coated with zinc so thats going to be corrosion resistant, and it also has a keeper right there that will keep it from popping off of your tow bar. The coiled safety cable has a nylon coating so that will keep it from scratching your car, scratching the paint.

There we go. These are designed to work as a safety device between your RV or your motorhome and a flat-towed vehicle or between your towed vehicle and your trailer. The cable itself is 40 inches long and then when you add the hook and loop then it's 42 inches. These do come with a one-year limited warranty. And thats it for part number C80151, the Curt Single Hook Coiled Safety Cables with S-Hooks in a length of 42 inches..

I bought all of my products for flat towing my 2014 Jeep Cherokee for etrailer and I couldn’t be happier. The service was exceptional, the pricing was right, and when I did have a problem, they were right there to take care of it. When I need more goodies for the RV, I will be back!!!!



by:

The Quality appeared good upon receipt. These were installed on a boat trailer to replace the original safety chains that started looking rough. The vinyl coating should protect the cables for many years to come. Everything is performing to my expectations so far.



by:

As always, the merchandise was received promptly and consistent with my order. Curt products have served me very well over the years---fine design, high quality production and excellent customer service.



by:

I put these on a lightweight aluminum trailer. What I like about them is they coil up when the trailer is not in use. So they don’t lay in the snow or on the ground. Seem to be well made.



by:

OEM cables had gotten frayed from getting caught under the hitch at the bottom of my steep driveway. Got tired of stabbing myself handling them, so I replaced them. This was an exact replacement, and took all of 20 minutes to install. Only took that long because I had to removes the trailer jack/wheel to get the bolt for the cables out.

Excellent

by:

Everything I purchase from this company is outstanding. Never a problem, shipped on time, never disappointed. A+ customer service too. Great company.



by:

Back ordered by manufacturer for weeks! etrailer sent to me as soon as they received it and were very professional during this waiting period. Thank you etrailer!!



by:

I purchased the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms - Car Mount - 2" Ball - 5,000 lbs. initially I was Leary of the product because of its low price compared to other tow bars. I now can say my concerns were needless because after flat towing my Wrangler over 5,000 trouble-free miles I have nothing negative but only positives to report. The best thing I like about the tow At is that it only takes 5 minutes to attach and unhook.



by:

Overall ordering experience was excellent. Navigation was easy and items searched were found quickly. Product quality looks great but we will field test lol. Website to home delivery was great.



by:

The skid plate on my trailer jack quite literally saved my life! To make a long story short, my trailer came loose from my tow vehicle at 65 mph and the skid plate on the trailer jack functioned perfectly preventing the trailer jack from digging into the pavement. When I inquired about replacing this skid plate, your company generously sent me a new skid plate at no charge. In return I mailed the old one back for your R & D people to see what it looked like after performing it's job. Thank you.


Comments
Fantastic, as stated in my first review, the skid plate worked as designed and prevented a serious accident. I hope to NEVER have the opportunity to test the jack stand skid plate ever again. Thanks for a great product. KB :

by:

Good equipment, look to be of good quality materials. Coils are kind of tight.



by:

Easy to install. Never used in an emergency. The cable has considerable coil memory. It retains a coiled-up shape. This makes it a bit difficult to stretch to connect.


Comments
Performed well the first year. No problems.

These brake assemblies came to Me looking great, They fit great, work Great, and best of all was the Great Price and the free shipping! 5 STAR's for this Product. Also I want to give a 5 STAR Rating for Your Customer Support, The Fast Shipping Notifications, and the After the Sale Follow up. Keep up the Great Work.

by:

Very happy with the safety cables that I ordered. The price was good and the apparent quality as well. It took a little longer to receive the order than the last time I ordered from you. I am thinking that maybe they didn't come directly from you. Overall, I am happy, and will use you again as the need arises for your oroducts.



by:

Our old chains dragged on some dips but these do not and they are good quality and easily clip to hitch Every time we hook up the trailer I am glad I bought them



by:

Product excellent but really the big deal is Etrailer's service and speed. Great to deal with. Will always consider buying from Etrailer first due to their superior service, in-stock availability, knowledge and shipping.



by:

These cables were easy to install and feel very sturdy. I installed them on a small tent trailer. My only concern is because they are coiled I am always worried they will get pinched in the hitch because they don't hang down from the trailer. I have used the trailer several times in the last year since installing them and it hasn't happened yet. As always, etrailer.com has top notch customer service!



by:

Awesome safety cables. Length is great and I really like the coil feature. I deal with a fleet of vehicles and small trailers, so getting drivers to hook them up properly every time is tough. These safety cables will save me a lot of work since they won't drag. I can't tell you how many plugs and chains I've repaired. This will help solve the problem.



by:

Item is a heavier gauge than expected, much better build quality. These are replacing the chains that dragged and ground off on our trip to PA. They coil back into their spool nicely. Well worth the money spent, I plan on getting another set to replace the chains on my utility trailer next!


Comments
A year later and they are still going strong. Still coil back into their coils nicely! Love that they dont drag on the ground like chains do.
Jesse G - 07/31/2016


by:

Great safety cables.

Only recommendations
I have is to: 1) list the ratings on the packaging and/or on the cables themselves, 2) State that each cable is rated at 5,000 lbs.



by:

The safety cables work well. The hooks seem a bit small for my Father's safety attachments on his Ford F150. They fit just right on my Ram 1500.



by:

Load rating is correct for my application. Coated cables coil out of the way preventing damage. No rattle like chains. Overall a good product.



by:

Awesome product, so much better than chains. Fast shipping.



by:

Thankfully, the tow bar that I purchased has done it's job and these cables have not had to be used.



by:

Replaced 2 safety cables of which one had already snapped and the other not far from it. Looking close to home didn't produce what I needed so again to to E-trailer and the exact items as OEM. Ordered and shipped right away. Haven't mounted yet as I have a bad head cold but did measure against one old cable and they are right on.

  • What Size is the Opening for the Eyes of Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables 80151
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a set of Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables # C80151 to measure the size of the eye opening for you. The width at the widest point is 0.65 inches (between 5/8 and 11/16 inches). And at the longest the opening is 1.37 inches (1-3/8 inches). With these measurements you should be able to determine if the bolt will go through.

  • Do S Hook Safety Chains Require Wire Keepers When Attaching to Vehicle Safety Chain Loops
    As long as the S of the hook fits over the safety chain loop a wire keeper isn't exactly required. It wouldn't hurt but I've towed hundreds of time with a safety chain setup that had S-hooks without keepers and the chains never disconnected.

    The Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables # C80151 have zinc-coated steel S-hooks. The cables are braided steel and nylon coated. It would not be aircraft cable. The diameter of the hooks is 3/8". I have linked a video review of these cables for you.

  • Do Curt Single Hook Coiled Safety Cables Meet Legal Requirements for Towing
    As long as the 5,000 pound capacity for the Curt Single Hook Safety Cables # C80151 meets or exceeds your trailer's weight then they will indeed meet any local requirements with regards to safety chains or cables when towing. These cables have a nice coiled design that will help keep them off the ground and the nylon coating prevents any scratching and will protect the interior from rust or corrosion. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Can Safety Cables be Used Instead of Safety Chains on Trailer
    Yes you can use safety cables in place of safety chains as long as they are rated for the weight of the trailer. Chains are typically a little easier to use in this application though since you can manipulate the length of them easier by twisting them but you can use a cable set like the part # C80151 if you wanted. These have a 5,000 lb capacity.
