Video Transcript for Roadmaster EZ Hook Safety Cables Review

We're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Easy Hook Safety Cables with anchors. Part #RM-655. One of the major reasons you're going to want these cables is it's going to cut down on your coiled cables getting bunched up and laying across your tow bar. These are going to fit in this channel that's already designed to be in your tow bar and keep them out of the way. You don't have that cluttered look. You have plenty of length if you had to use an extension, or a drop, or rise for the back of your coach. Depending on your application, these are designed for 8000 lbs of strength as a pair.

They're stainless steel, aircraft quality, nice large hook at the end with a safety catch; keep it in place. Cables are rubber coated to protect against causing any scratching. It does have a stainless steel bar the end, as well. It's going to cut down on any kind of corrosion or rusting that might occur with the regular steel one. These cable are going to measure 64-inches long.

That should give you plenty of length between your coach and your towed vehicle. These cables are designed to be used with all of Roadmaster tow bars with removable arms. Now that we've over some features, let's show you how to install them. There's going to be a left and a right bracket. That bracket's going to only fit one way on our easy mount base plate. You have the large hole and the small hole.

It'll line up. Drop in our 1/2-inch by 1-inch bolt. Take our flat washer and our locking nut and slip it off from the bottom. We want to make sure we line up our hole nice and straight as we tighten it up because, the pin and our tow bar mount is going to slide through that. You want to make sure that your bar's still going to fit in place.

Now, we can finish securing it. It's a real close fit in there, so we're going to have to use the open end part of our wrench and tighten it. Now repeat this for the other side. Once you have your bolts tight, take our tow bar bracket, place it back in the position, put in our clips, and we'll be ready to hook up our cables. The way they work, we're going to slip in through the hole, and it's going to kind of drop down; it locks in. There's a box on the backside here that's not going to allow it to come out of there until you're ready to take the out. We'll go ahead and take our safety cables and place them through the channel that's built into our tow bar. For the large part, we'll snap it down to the bottom and come back up. We're going to cross our safety chain and we'll do the same thing for the other side. As you can see, you're cable's going to be kept out of the way by this build in channel and our tow bar. As the tow bar will go back into it's fully locked position, there'll be plenty of length on our cables. That's going to do it for a look at the Roadmaster Easy Hook Safety Chain Cables with anchors, part #RM-655.

The cables arrived today and should work awesomely. I've not yet been able to install them, but they are replacing a nearly identical pair that were several inches too long.




by:

My tow vehicle went on fire on July 4. If I did NOT have these safety cables, I would not have been able to disconnect my motorhome before it, too, caught fire. I will never tow with the other cables.




by:

Very easy to install and much better than the old coiled cables I had.

Customer Service Gold Standard!!! I buy everything online. I never write reviews. Never say "Never". Here is the exception. Exceptional service from the minute I called to place my order, to order confirmation, to shipping confirmation to after delivery notice asking if I had any questions and giving me a phone number to call.

When I called to order Nicholas C was just so polite, helpful, and full of information on the product, shipping options, etc. I was just blown away by the professionalism of Nicholas. I needed the product soon and purchased the three-day delivery. Nicholas informed me that as it was already Wednesday at 4:30 it probably would not get shipped that day but would be shipped the next morning. Because a weekend was approaching I should expect delivery on Monday. Within 30 minutes I got a notice from Nicholas that they were able to get it shipped that day and it arrived at my door, in Claifornia, at 12:00 PM on Friday. Are all the customer service folks at eTrailer as good as Nicholas, or is he just the cream of the crop that I was lucky to get connected with? This is the way customer service should be done. My only disappointment is that you can't give more than Five Stars.

  • Replacement Safety Cables For My 2011 Chevrolet HHR That Measure 67 Inches
    Since your original safety cables are 67 inches, I recommend The Roadmaster EZ Hook Safety Cables # RM-655-68. These cables are designed to work with all Roadmaster mounting brackets with quick-disconnects. The safety cables are aircraft type, galvanized steel with a drop-forged steel hook with spring loaded latches. The Roadmaster EZ Hook Safety Cables # RM-655-64 would be to short.

    The safety cables by Roadmaster part # RM-655-76 and the 910650-76 are the same cables. The difference is the # RM-655-76 is for a pair and the other is a single.

  • Solution to Allow Connection of Safety Chain Clevises to Larger Chain Loops on 2022 Winnebago Forza
    I may have a solution for you, but I checked with my contact over at Roadmaster and there are unfortunately not different sized clevis hooks on their safety cables like the # RM-655. However, you may be able to use some quick links like the Quick Links - 1/2" Diameter - Qty 2 # 37201345 to allow you to connect to the larger safety chain loops on your 2022 Winnebago Forza; you can then connect your safety chain clevises to the quick link directly.

  • Recommended Replacement Safety Cables For Roadmaster All-Terrain Tow Bar
    If you have the EZ Hook feature on your All-Terrain tow bar I recommend part # RM-655-64 for 64-inch long cables. If you need longer cables you can check out part # RM-655-76 which are 76-inches long. If you do not have the EZ Hook feature on your tow bar the safety cables I recommend are part # RM-643. These are 68-inch single hook coiled cables that have a spring hook on one end and a quick-link on the other and they have a 6,000-lb capacity. These are coiled to help keep them from...

  • Is Additional Safety Cable Needed When Installing Roadmaster EZ Hook Up to EZ4 Base Plate Kit
    The EZ4 base plate kit you have installed on your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee part # RM-521440-4 has safety chain tabs that are on the portion of the kit that attach directly to the vehicle frame. Since this base plate kit did not come with a short safety chain cable like some of the kits do you would not need an additional length of cable.

    The Roadmaster 68-inch Single Hook Safety Cables # RM-643, will work out great for use with your Roadmaster Falcon tow bar and Blue Ox Base plates. However, you will need to use the adapter bar specified for using Roadmaster tow bars with Blue Ox base plates; the Roadmaster Tow Bar Adapter # RM-031. The Roadmaster safety cables # RM-643 will work wonderfully with the Roadmaster built-in cable guide on the Falcon tow bar. The safety cables that you mentioned above, the Roadmaster EZ Hook...

    I will walk you through which parts you need starting from your 2009 Honda CR-V and move towards the vehicle. First you need base plates for the CR-V if you do not already have them. The base plates available for your CR-V are RoadMaster part # RM-521559-4. Next you need the towbar. You have selected RoadMaster part # RM-501. It has a quick disconnect system built in and will fit the base plates for your CR-V, so part # 910021-00 is not needed. You will need safety cables. You can use...

  • Proper Safety Cables to Use with the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate
    I spoke with Roadmaster to help with this, and we have a solution. The EZ Hook Safety Cables, part # RM-655, are not compatible with the Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit for the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse, part # RM-523200-5. The Base Plate you have does not have a spot for the anchors of the cables to mount to. Instead, use the Single Hook Cables, part # RM-645. I've linked to a video installation of these cables so you can see how they work.

  • Do Roadmaster EZ Hook Safety Cables Have a 10,000 lb Weight Rating
    The side rails on the Roadmaster BlackHawk 2 All Terrain Tow Bar # RM-422 are meant for the Roadmaster EZ Hook Safety Cables like the 68" # RM-655-68. The max capacity for these is 8,000 lbs though so if you need the full 10,000 lb weight capacity to match the tow bar then you'll need standard cables like the 80" Cables # RM-653. If you don't already have the tow bar then I recommend picking up the etrailer XHD Non-Binding Tow Bar # e84ZR instead as it has adapters to fit the same base...
