Video Transcript for Buyers Products Class 4 Trailer Safety Chain with 1 Clevis Hook Review

What's up everybody it's AJ with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna be checking out these virus products, safety chain hook, and this is going to be replacing our old rusty one on our trailer you see it's seen better days and we kind of want to upgrade the one with the latch. So we're going to put that on there and check it out. Take a look at the chain. It's going to be 42 inches long. And then when you look at the links here, the links are going to have a three eighth of an inch diameter.

And it's also going to have a three eights of an inch hook here on the end. The chain also has a weight rating of 15,000 pounds, and it's also going to have a zinc coating on there. That's just going to help with that rust and corrosion. It's not going to happen as easily. I mean, they're not weather proof, but it is going to help fight that off.

Installation is really easy. We took off our old chain. So what we're going to do, is put it through the shackle right there. Just like that. Let me get my hand out of the way, and then we're gonna attach it to the trailer.

So its lining up with the hole there. I run this through the bottom. Now it's all set up. I'm going to add the Cotter pin in place and then we'll be done. I kind of have an older rustier one so its just going to fight me just a little bit but, not a big deal.

Get it started in there and come back with a hammer. Just give it a couple taps to help it go through. There we go. Now you can just pry those out on each side, And It will Keep that everything in place. Overall, safety chains will be a great addition to your trailer, especially if you're replacing an old worn out one, or you're just looking to upgrade and get you one of the hooks with the guard on there That way it just snaps into place When you go to attach it, and you can be on your way. Well, I think that does it. Thanks for hanging out and I hope this helped..

Chains appear to be heavy duty and good quality. INstalled them to replace the useless cables that our boat trailer came with for safety chains. Those rusted and broke in half! Was concerned whether the hooks would fit on our Tahoe but they fit fine. Recommend.

When I called to inquire about my order, being delayed, my order was expedited by providing a replacement item without additional cost. I am very happy with the service I have received from your company. Thank You

Heavy duty safety chains! I bought these to replace the coil safety cables for my boat trailer, exactly what I was looking for and the hooks work with both of my curt and drawtite hitches.

Love these chains, not rusting either!

Timely email from etrailer asking me to review these chains. I just got back from the boat and was taking pictures of these chains because of how poor they looked. These chains have been trailered 8 times in the past year, otherwise kept in covered storage and they are rusting like crazy. Stay away


Comments
Thank you for your review. Although these chains are zinc plated it is a good idea to rinse them off with fresh water after being exposed to salt water.

Useing on the Reese Goosebox. The 5/16 chains were too small for the mounts on my 2015 Ram theses 3/8 safety chains are perfect.

The chains are extra heavy duty and will serve me well, but the customer service at etrailer is exceptional. The original chains were out of stock, but they sent several options to chose from, should I chose not to wait. They are the best!

  • Is There a Bolt On Bracket For Safety Chains on a Trailer
    I may have a solution for you but I'm not aware of a bolt on safety chain bracket or clevis that can be used. However you can simply take a safety chain set (or your existing chains) like the 42" Long Safety Chain with 3/8" Clevis Hook (15,000 lbs) # 337BSC3842 and use a grade 8 bolt to attach the chains directly to the trailer with a washer holding the bolt through the last chain link. I've linked some photos that show how to make this work for you but that would be my suggestion if you're...

  • Why Is The Fulton Safety Chain Rated Higher Than the Buyers Products When It Has Smaller Links?
    The Fulton Safety Chain with Clevis Hook # FCHA0050324 has a higher weight capacity as it is a grade 70 safety chain that is made of hardened steel while the Buyers Products 3/8" x 42" Class 4 Trailer Safety Chain # 337BSC3842 is only a grade 43 chain. The important thing is to ensure whichever chain you choose that it meets or exceeds the GVWR of your trailer to ensure the chain does not break should the trailer become separated from your vehicle.

  • Is Buyers Products 43 Proof Chain Stronger than 30 Proof Chain
    Yes, the Buyers Products 3/8" x 42" Trailer Safety Chain - 43 Proof # 337BSC3842 has a max gross trailer weight (GTW) rating of 15,000 lbs, so it's going to be stronger than part # 337B03835SC, which is a 3/8" x 35" safety chain - 30 Proof, rated at 10,000 lbs GTW.

  • What Size Clevis Hook is Needed for the Safety Chain Loops on the Curt Gooseneck Kit Part # C60618
    The clevis hook on the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit part # 49150 is 5/16" diameter. Therefore if this hook will not work with the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit for Ram Underbed Gooseneck Hitch part # C60618 then you will want to move up to a 3/8" diameter clevis hook like the one included with the Buyers Products Trailer Safety Chain part # 337BSC3842. This clevis hook should be large enough to accommodate the safe chain loops on the above Curt Gooseneck Kit. You will need two of them...

  • Can Quick Links be Used to Attach Safety Chains to Trailer
    When using safety chains, each component, including the quick links, must meet or exceed the GVWR of your trailer. So if you used a pair of safety chains that were rated for 12,000 lbs - to meet the 24,000 lb GVWR of your trailer - you would need to use quick links that were also rated for 12,000 lbs. The highest-rated quick links we carry are the Safety Chain Quick Link # 49135 which is rated for 10,000 lbs and would not be enough for your 24,000 lb trailer. If you are unable to find...

  • How To Attach Safety Chains To Trailer Tongue
    I am not aware of a bolt-on version of the Buyers Products Weld-On Safety Chain Retainer part # 3375471000. However, if all you were wanting to do is mount your safety chains to the tongue of your trailer then you will just simply do so by running a grade 8 bolt though both the chain and frame like you can see in the two attached photos.
