Quick Link Recommendation for 7,700 lb Safety Chain Application

Question:

this item Fulton - Safety Chain Quick Link, 1/210K Item # 49135 inch states 10,000 GTW, not just 3300 as the other curt links. Can you please verify if this item is in fact higher rated. My trailer can be up to 7700 lbs so I want to be well inside the combined working limits. Thank you

Helpful Expert Reply:

The quick link part # 49135 has two ratings. 3,300 lbs where it is safe to be used at all the time without fatiguing it and the break strength which is 10k.

Two of these would be good for 6,600 in a safe load limit. For a safety chain situation where it's going to be all the capacity at once plus some inertia I'd not recommend them.

The part # BX88197 is a similar 1/2 inch diameter link that is designed for use with 10k safety cables so it would be the better option.
