Can I Cross Safety Chains Three Times

Question:

Is it ok to cross my chains 3 or 4 times if there a bit long? Two people told me its ok and 1 person told me no.

Helpful Expert Reply:

You do want to cross the safety chains to provide a cradle so if the trailer becomes disconnected from the ball, the chains will hold it off of the ground. The main thing is you do not want them to bind up (get wrapped around anything when making turns) as that could cause damage. As long as you have a cradle and the chains do not bind you should be fine. You can also spin the chains and they will shorten that way.
