Roadmaster Safety Cable Hook

Heavy-duty safety cables ensure that your towed vehicle does not separate from your motorhome in the event that your tow bar becomes detached. Spring-loaded, drop-forged steel latches provide a secure connection while towing. A smooth vinyl coating prevents the cables from scratching or chipping your tow bar.


Roadmaster Hybrid Safety Cables

The hybrid, coiled-to-straight design will keep the cables off the ground. These cables are ideal for tow bars with safety channels, such as the Roadmaster Nighthawk tow bar (RM-676 - sold separately). The straight ends fit neatly through your tow bar channel guides and attach to your towed vehicle. The coiled ends easily extend to your RV without dragging on the road.

Nothing new to add. The cable work as all safety cable should. Jut like all RoadMaster products.

I ordered towing safety for my Roadmaster tow bar, and once again E-trailer came thru with flying colors. Everything arrived on time and in good shape. Excellent quality parts packaged well and shipped immediately via UPS. Thank you Hannah !



by:

Working with etrailer is always easy. Deliveries are on time and correct. Thanks.

these cables will not fit through the tubes on my road master sterling all terrain tow bar 8000lbs ! the hoop at the ends are to big to fit in the tube

I am sorry that the safety cables are not working with the channel guides on your Sterling tow bar. I reached out to Roadmaster and they advised that some of the older models have a smaller channel as so the loops will not fit through. The only solution I have would be to use a coiled cable like part # RM-653 that would not use the tow bar channel and keep the cables from hanging too low.



by:

Easy to do business with. Great product.



by:

Great replacement



by:

Worked perfect.



by:

We were always happy with our purchases and customers service with you's unfortunately we lost our 40 foot motor home and our tow car in hurricane Ian.But I'm sure we will be customers in the future thank you



by:

Coily and still being relied upon after almost 40k miles



by:

Works great. The hooks are a very tight fit for the "Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms (Item # 921-3)" but you'll quickly learn the only way to get them attached. The cable fits very nicely within the carriage rail of the above base plate kit, so no need to fiddle with once setup correctly.



by:

Good length and like the coiled feature.



by:

Helen at Etrailer was very helpful & friendly, this company is alway on top of there game no
matter who I talk to. If they do not stock something they always recommend where I can find what I am looking for.



by:

These cables fit perfectly through the channel on my tow bar because of the uncoiled section. The coiled section keeps the remainder of the cable tight so that it does not hang down.



by:

Exact replacement! Don’t cross the cables under the hitch. If the hitch drags the cables will scuff. No real damage to the cable, but the plastic coating was cut badly. Live and learn.



by:

They work great, easy to hook and unhook. Hard to beat Roadmaster!



by:

Exact Item I ordered, delivered on time and packaged well.



by:

High quality product.



by:

Correct part, perfect fit.
Staff at
etrailer super helpful, knowledgeable and friendly.
Thanks again !



by:

Working with the folks at etrailer was just fantastic. All of them were very helpful and really knew their products.



by:

this is an excellent choice for cables. the coil allows you to have expansion with out dragging your cable on the road and still have plenty of reach.



by:

Make it much easier for hook up



by:

Just what I needed. Great quality!



by:

Chains are doing very well – I love the coil feature as it is keeping them off the ground – I’m highly satisfied with this purchase!



by:

They were just what I needed. I thought that they might be too long, but with the coiled up end they were just right.



by:

Product was just what I wanted and needed. More importantly, etrailer had it in stock at the right price. 3rd time I have done business with etrailer, and I am 100% satisfied. Look forward to future transactions!

  • Where are Roadmaster 64 Inch Safety Cables Measured From?
    The Roadmaster 64" Single Hook, Straight Safety Cables # RM-645 is the overall length of the unit. If you are at all concerned with the amount of length I highly recommend going to a longer cable such as the 76" # RM-645-76 or the 80" Double Hook # RM-674.

  • Recommended Flat Towing Components For A 1999 Jeep Wrangler TJ
    Unfortunately We don't carry replacement bumpers like you're wanting so you would need to contact SmittyBilt directly to get a bumper that's rated for flat towing and would have D-Rings that are capable of being flat-towed from. The suppliers we have for baseplates haven't verified every single bumper will fit with the way the baseplates mount so a D-Ring setup would end up being a much safer choice with no room for error. From there we have Roadmaster D-Ring adapters that can connect...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Using a Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar
    To flat tow your 2014 Jeep Wrangler you will need a base plate kit, tow bar (which you have already), tow bar wiring, safety chains (which you may have already with your tow bar) and a supplemental braking system. Roadmaster makes the Sterling tow bar, so I am going to base my recommendations around your tow bar and that you have a factory bumper. If you do not have a factory bumper your base plate kit could be different, so just let me know if you do not have a factory bumper and I can...

  • What Gear do I Need to Be in to Flat Tow My 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500?
    I did some research on your 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500, and I discovered that only 4-wheel drive models can be safely flat-towed with all four wheels on the ground. If you have a 2-wheel drive model, you will not be able to flat-tow. As far as the gear you need to tow, you will need to shift the automatic transmission to PARK and a manual transmission to FIRST GEAR. Turn the engine off, but leave the ignition on and set the parking brake. You will then need to shift your transfer case to...

  • Recommended Tow Bar And D-Ring Adapters For A 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    The Blue Ox Acclaim # BX4330 is a car-mount style tow bar which isn't compatible with D-Ring adapters. You would need to use a motorhome-mounted style tow bar like the Roadmaster # RM-522 along with the 3/4" D-Ring Adapter # RM-035. All adapters are brand specific so you wouldn't be able to mix and match and unfortunately Blue Ox only has a 7/8" and 1" option for adapters.
