Video Transcript for Review of Fulton Trailer Safety Chains - Safety Chains - FCHA0050324

Hello everybody. This is Jeff at Today, we're gonna take a look at this Fulton 42 inch long safety chain with the clevis hook and keeper. Has an 18,800 pound capacity and this is for a quantity of one chain. Now, safety chains will help ensure a nice, safe towing and are required by law in most states. Does require two safety chains per trailer.

Now, this will provide a nice backup connection between the trailer and the tow vehicle if your trailer becomes disconnected from the tow vehicle. Basically, to install it, you'll attach this end link right here of the steel chain to your trailer. And then the hook end right here, the clevis hook, this will loop into the truck bed to your safety chain connection points. Now, it does require two chains per trailer. This is just for a quantity of one.

And when you do install these, when you do hook them to your tow vehicle, you do wanna cross the chains across each other for added safety. If you notice these have a nice yellow zinc finish on them to resist rust and corrosion, and this is a nice grade 70 safety chain. As we mentioned, the weight capacity on this chain is 18,800 pounds. Now, the overall length, just wanna zoom back out, extend it all the way. If I measure just the chain portion, not including the clevis hook, one end to the other, there you can see is right at 42 inches long.

Not including the hook. Now, the hook itself is designed to work with 5/16 inch size chain. And this part here is for a quantity of one chain with the clevis hook. And I just want to show you, zoom back in and we'll show you, there's your clevis hook. And there's your keeper, that when you hook this up, this keeper will keep it from becoming disconnected.

See the nice yellow zinc finish on it. But that should do it for the review on this Fulton 42 inch long safety chain with the clevis hook and an 18,800 pound capacity..

Great price. Just the right size for my boat trailer winch safety chain.


Installed easily enough, and looks solidly built.

The only real test, of course, would be to have the hitch fail, and that's not happened, so I can't report on how they worked then.


Clevis hooks are to small to snap on the Reese anchors. I was hoping they would.


Still looking great. I purchased these to go with the quick links I ordered from etrailer so I could remove the safety chains from my trailer when not using it after hearing of several trailers being stolen by only hooking up the safety chains


Towed a sailboat (6000 lbs) on trailer (~1500 lbs) from Missouri to Colorado with a 1/2 Ton chevy pickup. Did great, no sway, no issues whatsoever. Installation was straightforward and done in the boat yard with limited tools without any trouble at all. We didn't put the boat on the trailer and had no opportunity to adjust the weight distribution. No problems at all. I definitely can recommend this hitch setup.


After one year item FCHA0050324 Safety chains (I have 2 of them) with clevis hooks are as good as they were new. Very satisfied. I use the chains with my 40' fifth wheel trailer which uses a gooseneck adaptor & requires safety chains.


everything arrived on time and in good condition.
my service rep. (Leslie C) was very knowledgeable and helpful.
I would not hesitate to purchase parts from etrailer in the future.


simple to install and adjust chain leng th.


Good quality, fits the need at a good p rice


The safety chain bracket was exactly what I expected. My gooseneck trailer had only one safety chain when I purchased it used, and the safety chain links had been welded to the trailer. I sought out something to replace it with knowing that having only 1 safety chain was potentially not legal and that welding the chain links weakens them. I ended up ordering 2 of these brackets and 2 safety chains (FCHA0050324) from etrailer and they worked well together. The bracket is round so I ground a flat spot on it where it meets the trailer to make it easier to keep in position while welding it.


These safety chains are more than adequate for controlling my dual tandem gooseneck trailer in an emergency situation. I would recommend them to anyone pulling heavy loads.

These chains are great. No rust anywhere in the first year.
Tim G - 11/14/2015


Very happy and they were delivered fast, thank you!


Was very Happy with Safety Chains & etrailer Descriptive Information about the product ….


Product was as described. Swapping out original 1/4" (still good condition and will be reused on another trailer build) chains after upping my toy haulers aging springs to carry some quads and a 4 seater UTV and "lift" slighty to avoid continuing to scrape off plumbing. Part is very sturdy / made of good quality (Gr 70 chain) and the hooks are larger than OG pieces and once installed will fit on my Curt hitch rings better. Hopefully! I just received the product last night so these aren't installed yet. However, all the reviews made these chains seem so so much larger than they really are. This is my 2nd or so purchase from etrailer and just with customer service alone I will MOST definitely be purchasing again. As well as recommended etrailer to friends.
Josh D


The chains are just as advertised and fit the bill exactly for my Gooseneck cattle trailer. The price was good and the order process was very easy. Delivery was quicker than I expected since i took the cheapest option.


Just got the safety chains I ordered. They are exactly as described and price was excellent compared to others I researched. Thanks etrailer!

Perfect, these are a great product!
Robert M - 07/07/2019


All the products I have purchased from Etrailer have been good. Quailty, durable products, fast shipping and easy transactions. has pretty much any product you need for your trailers. Thank you Etrailer!


Great product, chain length more than sufficient, too long for our horse trailer actually bc of low to the ground loading. Overall great safety chains.


Product as advertised. Delivered fast. Great heavy-duty Grade 70 chain and hook.

So far they havent had to be put to use, but peace of mind knowing i have them hooked up
DS - 10/19/2017


Exactly as described, for the price of the clevis hook at a local retailer, i was able to get 42" of graded transport chain too. As always, etrailer is exceeding expectations.


The wheel studs fit perfectly and were easy to install. I had no success locating these wheel studs at local part stores. They were shipped quickly. The tow chains are very high quality.


Good prices, good service and quality p roduct.


I bought these chains to replace my old ones because the safety latch on these chains were heavier and made better than my old chains. They work perfect and I would recommend them to anyone needing a very good safety chain


I received my order earlier than expected and everything I ordered for my boat trailer looks outstanding. I will begin the installation tomorrow sometime and am very happy about the quality of these products. The service provided was outstanding and my salesperson, Madison, was great. She answered all my questions and followed up after the fact. Thanks for the great service.


Received order within few days opened box and was surprised to see The bottom of the box is not the end of our relationship printed on box. Got to what I ordered all was there in perfect shape , if and when I need something again I will not hesitate thank you George and

  • Best Spot to Mount Fulton # FCHA0050324 Trailer Safety Chains
    The Fulton # FCHA0050324 safety chains are sold individually. For two chains, you'd need to order two of that part number. The best place to mount the chains is to the underside of the trailer tongue behind the coupler.

  • How is the 18,800 lb Capacity of the Fulton Safety Chains FCHA0050324 Determined
    The 18.8k capacity for the # FCHA0050324 that you referenced is listed as the GTW or gross trailer weight. This chain can be used on a trailer that weighs up to 18,800 lbs. The working load limit is a different capacity that would be more relevant for using the chain to secure cargo. Since in the event of a trailer coming un coupled the chains would not have 18,800 lbs put on them, since the road supports the total weight of the trailer, You would not need a chain with a working load...

  • Dimensions of the Links of the 18,800 lb Fulton Safety Chain FCHA0050324
    The diameter of the links of the Safety Chain # FCHA0050324 that you referenced are 5/16 of an inch. I went out to our warehouse to measure the length and width of each link and found them to be 2 inches long and 1-1/8 inches wide.

  • Safety Chain Recommendation for Use on 34 Foot Keystone Sprinter Camper
    I am not sure what Curt safety chains you may be referring to, but the Fulton safety chain part # FCHA0050324 would be a great option. This is a 42 inch long chain that has a 18,800 lb capacity which works great for heavy campers like yours.

  • Is Hook for Fulton 18.8K Safety Chain with Clevis Hook Grade 70
    I reached out to my contact at Fulton who said he wasn't able to find a specific rating for the hook part of the Safety Chain with Clevis Hook # FCHA0050324, but he said that they do make sure that the hook meets or exceeds the grade of the chains links so since the chain links are a grade 70 you can be confident that the hook will be just as strong, if not stronger.

  • What is Weight Capacity of Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit # 49150
    We don't rate the Fulton chains we offer like the part # FCHA0050324 that you mentioned. Fulton is who tested and rated the chains for 18,800 lbs. They are normally very conservative with how they rate their chains and towing products and we've yet to have any issues with that so I'd feel very confident in the 18.8k capacity.

  • Recommended Safety Chains for a 1998 Jayco Travel Trailer
    I do have an option but we do not have any way for you to safely add onto your existing chains. It would be difficult to match the grade and construction of the chain as well so it will be better to just replace them altogether. For this, I recommend using the Safety Chain with Clevis Hook part # FCHA0050324. These chains measure to be 42" long. If you have any excess you can just loop them around one another to get rid of any slack. The strength of the chain has to do with the grade...

  • Is Weight Rating Stamped Onto Fulton Safety Chain # FCHA0050324
    The Fulton Safety Chain with Clevis Hook # FCHA0050324 referenced in your question features a weight capacity of 18,800 pounds. I went out to our warehouse to take a look at the chains and found that this particular rating is not stamped onto the chain or hook itself, nor is there a tag with this information. Its grade 70 designation is however stamped onto the links. I have attached a short video demonstration on this chain that you can also check out.

  • Availability of 40 inch Long 14,000 Lb Capacity Safety Cables
    Although we don't carry a safety cable that's rated that high, we do have a Fulton safety chain, # FCHA0050324 that's 42 inches long that has more than enough capacity for your needs. The chains are sold individually, so you'd need to order two of them. To find cables of the right length and capacity, you might try doing a Google search.

  • Will Fulton Safety Chain with Clevis Hook Fit Brophy Safety Chain Tie Down Loop

  • Safety Chain Mounts to Weld to a Trailer
    We have several different safety chain attachment brackets you could potentially use. I have included a link to them for you. It sounds like you are looking for something like # MB38. Keep in mind that this is raw steel. Welding to a dissimilar metal requires a professional, especially if the other metal is galvanized or zinc-coated because that can give off toxic fumes!

You may have seen a more silvered color chain like the Safety Chain with Clevis Hook - 18,800lbs - 42" - Qty 1 Item # FCHA0050324, but even this chain has a zinc coating.

  • Availability of Longer Trailer Safety Chain with 5/16 inch Diameter
    For a safety chain with a 5/16 inch diameter that is 42 inches long the part # FCHA0050324 would be a great option. These use clevis style hooks instead of S-hooks as this is a higher capacity chain where this style of connector is typically seen. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • How To Choose New Safety Chains, Breakaway, and Coupler for Gooseneck Trailer
    In order to choose the correct set of safety chains you will need to choose a set that has the length you need as well as the weight capacity which should exceed the weight of your trailer. The Safety Chain with Clevis Hook part # FCHA0050324 (2) is 42" long and would give you a 18,800 lb weight capacity. In regards to the weight of the trailer, this would be listed as gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) and is the amount that the trailer can weigh fully loaded. If you don't know the gross...

  • Safety Chains to Use with 20,000 Pound Goose Box
    For a safety chain with a higher capacity than the # 49150 I recommend part # FCHA0050324 which is rated up to 18,800 pounds. This is only one chain so you need two of them but the rating is per chain so it's definitely enough for what you need. The # FCHA0050324 however does not include any hardware. To connect them to a Goose Box # RP94720 you need 1/2 washers, 1/2 inch nuts, 1/2-13x2.25 bolts, and 1/2 inch lock washers. You need 2 of each.

  • 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.

  • Safety Chain Recommendation for Use with Bulldog Coupler 1289020300
    For a general-purpose safety chain for a standard gooseneck coupler like the Bulldog part # BD1289020300 we offer # FCHA0050324 from Fulton. This is a 42-inch Grade 70 chain with 5/16-inch clevis. This is sold as a single chain, not a pair. Most people will weld the chain to the trailer or some will bolt it on. The part # AM3109 is designed for use on a Ranch Hitch adapter and was not intended for use on standard couplers.

  • How to Use Safety Chains on a Gooseneck Trailer
    For a safety chain that will be sufficient for most gooseneck trailers I really like the Fulton Safety Chain with Clevis Hook part # FCHA0050324. This safety chain has a grade 70 rating with large clevis hook. You will need two of them for your trailer. The end opposite of the clevis hook will attach to the nose of a trailer via a bolt and the clevis hook will attach to the gooseneck hitch you have in your truck bed. Almost all gooseneck hitches will have a set of holes that can be used...

  • Safety Chain Loop Bracket for Installing New Safety Chains on Trailer

  • How Does Safety Chain Set # FCHA0050324 Normally Attach to Trailer Frame
    Usually with higher capacity safety chains like the # FCHA0050324 that you referenced they get attached to the trailer frame with safety chain loops like the part # 337SC58B directly which get basically welded over the end chain link. Quick links could work but you'd need one really high capacity since this chain set is for higher capacity setups.
