Video Transcript for Laclede 48" Long Safety Chain Review

Today on our utility trailer, we're going to be installing the Laclede 48" Long Safety Chains with a 3/8" hook, rated for 3,000 pounds part number 2114-553-04. These are 48" long safety chains. The chain diameter itself is a 3/16" with 3/8" hooks and it is rated for a class 1. It has a 3,000 pound minimum breaking strength. Here's what our new safety chains look like, that we're going to be installing on our trailer. You will need to supply the hardware to secure the safety chains to your trailer. On this particular trailer, there's already a couple holes. One on this side, there's also one over here that we're going to use to secure the chains. You want to first find the center, which is this link right here.

We're then going to hook our chains over around the wiring. We'll take our bolt. Again, you'll need to supply the hardware to attach the chains to your trailer. We're going to be using a bolt, a flat washer on this side, a flat washer, a lock washer, and a hex nut on the inside of the trailer to secure it. Once you have the hardware tightened down, that's all there is to it to installing your new safety chains. These safety chains are required in most states to secure the trailer to your tow vehicle in the event that the trailer coupler should come off the ball. With that, that's all there is to it to installing the new Laclede 48" Long Safety Chains with 3/8" hooks, pounds part number 2114-553-04, as installed here on our utility trailer.

48" Long Safety Chain with 3/8" Hooks, 3,000 lbs. - 2114-553-04

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (36 Customer Reviews)


My father and I built my little trailer from scratch. We purchased a wiring harness, electrical clips, fenders, and a safety chain from etrailer. We are extremely happy with our products and the customer service we received!


Perfect safety chains for ny small trai ler..

by: has the absolute BEST customer service I’ve ever experienced. Their inventory is always full and they have never sent the wrong item. I highly recommend them to anyone!!


Extremely fast shipping - arrived 4 days prior to estimate. Parts look good. Highly recommend etrailer!


Fast and helpful and saved me


Trust to have the safety stuff you need. My truck was saved once by having not just safety chains on the trailer, but a safety chain on the bow eye of a boat. My rig was rear-ended and the safety chains on the trailer and on the boat prevented the boat and trailer from ending up smashed into the back of the truck. Don't go home without both - get 'em from


As a owner of a auto repair shop i have used this site to help customers find the right trailer hitch for there car and for me ones that are mostly bolt up to car and makes it easy for me the installer and the customer.
as a busy shop in Briarcliff I always recommend
excellent quality and workmanship


This lightweight chain worked well for my canoe/kayak trailer. Great price as well. Quick link options are limited if you want to match the chain rating with the link.


The price can't be beat. I got 1 set for safety chains and another to hold my ramps in place. I just used 2 quick links and cut each side to length.


Bought this to replace my safety chains on my utility trailer. Shipping was on time and product was exactly what I wanted. Happy buyer.


Chain is a chain. Looks to be of decent quality. Hope to never need to find out how well they work. Bolted right on. Direct swap to rusty old short chains that came on a used trailer.


Purchased to replace original breakaway emergency brake chain which was all rusted. Very pleased with the quality as it is more heavy duty than the original for a great price.


I used this chain on a hitch extension I made. It works great and was an easy modification.


These safety chains seem super safe. I haven't needed to use them yet. I hope to never find out how safe they really are.


Work great perfect length


Web site is great easy to find what I need . The chains I ordered came yesterday exactly what I needed to replace old chains . Quality is good price is good shipping was fast great service . I will keep coming back


Excellent service.quality parts!prompt service and detailed information!!!


Great price, but slow shipping. However, would do business again.


Perfect, high qualité and low price.


Nice solid chain I used as a replacement for older ones.


Thank you for the excellent service and the product worked perfectly.


The chain was great but too short. That was my fault. I found another use for it though. Excellent service.


Thank you. Arrived sooner than what they said. Would definitely recommend your place to others.


Item-matched healthy
Thank you very


Everything worked as it should.

  • USA Made Trailer Safety Chain Recommendation with 5k Capacity
    Sometimes part numbers can change, but I can guarantee that if you order the # 2118-348-04 you will get a USA made 5,000 lb rated safety chain with 7/16 inch hooks. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Installing Safety Chain Connection Point to Factory Hitch on 1998 Toyota Tacoma
    As long as a qualified welder is used, a Safety Chain Attachment Loop like part # E950 could be welded to the receiver as shown in the photo I provided. Having an amateur welder weld it could result in the hitch being weakened. This would be the best and easiest solution for you. .

  • Safety Chain and Install Loop Recommendation for a Jet Ski Trailer
    I would have a qualified weldor, weld a Safety Chain Loop, # E950, to the bottom of the trailer frame which would give you an attachment point for the safety chains like part # 2118-348-04, with Safety Chain Quick Links, # 2114-553-04

  • Recommended Safety Chains for 500 lbs Boat Trailer
    For a 500 lbs boat trailer I recommend a 27 inch long chain rated at 5K, part # 2118-605-04. For a 48 inch chain with the same capacity, use part # 2118-348-04. One way to determine the length you will need is to connect your trailer to your tow vehicle, back your trailer up into a near jack-knife position and then use a rope to go from the safety chain attachment points of your trailer to your tow vehicle. Then measure the length of rope used and that will be the correct length of chain...

  • Best Way to Get Longer Safety Chains on a Trailer
    You can try using quick-links to add length to your safety chains, but your best option is going to be to use a different set of chains that are longer. For a 27 inch long chain rated at 5K, go with the # 2118-605-04. For a 48 inch chain with the same capacity, use part # 2118-348-04.

  • Installing Safety Chains On Curt Trailer Hitch #11130 For 2007 Mini Cooper S
    There are 2 metal rings welded to the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # 11130, on each side of the receiver to attach safety chains. You will have to reach up behind the bumper fascia to connect the safety chains. For safety chains, we have 48 Inch Long Safety Chain, part # 2114-553-04. For quick links to attach the chains, we have the Safety Chain Quick Link, part # C82932. Instructions and a video installation of the Curt Trailer Hitch # 11130 are linked.

  • 2k Rated Trailer Coupler Recommendation for 3 inch Wide Frame Channel
    We have several 3 inch channel trailer couplers that could work for you (see link). For a 2,000 lb capacity coupler the Dutton Lainson part # DL13728 is a very popular option that would work well. I would have a qualified weldor, weld a Safety Chain Loop, # E950, to the bottom of the trailer frame and then attach safety chains, like part # 2118-348-04, with Safety Chain Quick Links, # 2114-553-04.

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Light Pop Up Camper with a 2008 Toyota Tacoma
    All of the trailer hitches for the 2008 Toyota Tacoma are Class III hitches so that narrows it down a bit! I would go with a Class III even if there were other options because the Class III hitch has a higher capacity and the 2 inch receiver is compatible with more accessories. Curt trailer hitch # 13323 is the most popular option for the 2008 Toyota Tacoma so I recommend it. I have linked a video showing how it installs and a link to the installation instructions. Since you will be...

  • Trailer Coupler Install Video Request
    I have a video of a very similar coupler as the Coupler part # DL23870 being installed on a trailer that I attached for you to check out. The process will be identical basically. Grade 5 or higher bolts will be all that is needed for installation hardware for the coupler. Grade 8 would also work. I would have a qualified weldor, weld a Safety Chain Loop, # E950, to the bottom of the trailer frame, and then attach safety chains, like part # 2118-348-04, with Safety Chain Quick Links,...

  • Trailer Hitch-Ball Mount-Ball and Safety Chain for Towing a Camper Trailer with a 2001 Tacoma
    The replacement safety chain you will need depends on the weight of your camper trailer. The 48 inch long safety chain, # 2114-553-04, would be a good choice as long as the loaded gross weight of your trailer does not exceed 6,000 lbs. and you use the safety chain as 2 chains. If the clevis style hooks will not work on your vehicle, that S-hooks on the safety chains mentioned should work well. If you are worried about the chains coming loose, you could use a quick link, # 6590-044-04,...
