Determining Best Safety Chain Replacement for Keystone Trailer


Hi, i have a 2015 Keystone Passport 3220bh that needs to have the safety chains replaced. The trailer weights 6000 dry, what length and load should i when getting the chains.

The length of chains you will need for your trailer will really depend on your particular setup. For example if the safety chain loops on your tow vehicle are spaced far apart, then you will want to make sure you have a bit more slack for making tight turns. Also keep in mind that you will need enough length to criss-cross them under the coupler. The easiest solution will be to simply take a quick measurement on your existing safety chains and go with a matching length for a replacement.

As far as determining the weight rating needed, you will just want to make sure that the combined capacity of the chains meets or exceeds the loaded weight of your trailer. The Laclede Chain 35" Long Safety Chain # 1483-535-04 that you were looking at features a 5,400 pound Working Load Limit for one chain. Using two chains will give you a combined capacity of 10,800 pounds. This should be more than enough for your trailer that weighs 6,000 pounds unloaded, but you still might want to verify its loaded weight.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this particular safety chain, along with a link that will take you directly to our available selection that you can look through.
