Video Transcript for Curt Safety Chains and Cables - Safety Chains - C80031 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part C80031. This is the Curt Safety Chain. It's going to have the S-Hooks located on each end of the chain. Safety chains are going to be required in most states. A safety chain is simply going to act as a backup if your trailer becomes disconnected from your tow vehicle. All you have to do is detach the middle link of the zinc coated steel chain to your trailer's inaudible 00:00:24, and then hook the S-Hooks to the tow vehicle's hitch. Safety chains are going to help inter safe towing, and ultimately it' going to provide that back up connection between the trailer and your tow vehicle.

The S-Hooks will get on each end, they're going to connect to the hitch located on the tow vehicle, and again that middle link is going to attach to a trailer using a bolt. You could also use a quick link, attach it to the link right here, and you can attach the quick link to a safety chain loop that would be welded on to your trailer. It's fully made from a steel construction, very strong and durable. It's got a zinc coating over it, so it's going to resist rusting corrosion. Weight capacity for this chain is only 5000 pounds. Overall length from the tip of one hook to the tip of the other hook, is going to be about 47 inches.

The chain length is going to be about 40 inches. The chain diameter is going to measure a quarter of an inch, and then the diameter of the S-Hooks, those are going to measure 7/16 of an inch. With this part number, you're going to get one safety chain, and that's going to be it for our review of part number C80031. This is the Curt Safety Chain with the S-Hooks. .

Accurately described. Fast delivery. Best price I could find and the shipping costs were reasonable. Looks and feels like a high quality safety chain. While hooks do not have “keepers” they are large and heavy and I expect to have no problem with them. Very pleased with my purchase.

The trailer hitch that I bought from etrailer for my CRV are fine, good quality and I had no problem installing it. The major problem is now that the hitch is mounted there is very little room between the end of the mounting bolt/nut for the hitch and the top of the muffler. The exhaust system is rubber mounted and normally vibrates away on those rubber mounts. With less clearance it now vibrates against the mounting bolt for the trailer hitch and rattles like a machine gun on acceleration etc, and every bump in the road. This is not good, I need a fix.

Ordered safety chains for my boat trailer. No problems, easy order, came on time and were exactly as described. I will use etrailer again in the future.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Safety Chains

  • Length of Curt Safety Chain with S-Hooks # C80031
    Thank you for your recent purchase from etrailer. The Curt Safety Chain with S-Hooks # C80031 that you purchased has an overall length of 48-inches (including the two hooks) and an actual chain length of 40-inches as noted on the product page. Since I do not know how much additional length you require I suggest you take a look at TowReady # TR63035 which has an overall length of 72-inches. Or if you need only another inch or two you could add on Curt S-Hook with Wire Keeper # C81820...

  • Link Opening Measurement of Curt Safety Chains # 80031
    I went out to our warehouse to measure the opening in the link for you on the Curt Safety Chain with S-Hooks # C80031. The inner measurement is 0.52 inches at the weld and the links are 0.66 inches on the inside so your 1/2 inch bolt will fit. I measured with a digital caliper so it is precise and have attached a photo to assist.

  • Do Safety Chain Extension Links Have to Exceed Weight of Tow Vehicle
    Safety chain extension links simply need to match the size and capacities of your current safety chains. For example, if your chains were 1/2" diameter with a 10,000 lb capacity and 3,300 lb working load limit you would want the Threaded Quick Link - 1/2" Diameter # 49135. In regards to just the capacity for chains, the combined ratings of two safety chains should simply exceed the capacity of what you are towing. So for example two of the Curt Safety Chain with S-Hooks - 47" Long -...

  • Longer Safety Chain Recommendation for Longer Curt Ball Mount # C45270
    Going with a longer ball mount like the Curt Class III part # C45270 which is 13 inches long will increase the clearance between the tailgate and your trailer jack. In most cases safety chains have enough extra length that it's not an issue but if you need longer safety chains we have the Curt chain part # C80031 which is 47 inches long and has a 5,000 lb capacity. For a weld on loop to install it we have the part # E950.
