Recommended Safety Cable Quick Connect Links for 7000-lbs Trailer


My trailers safety chain hooks have a difficult time connecting to my hitch. The spots where the hooks couldnt connect easily. So I added the 5K links to the hitch and I connect my travel trailer hooks to the quick links. But since the trailer is about 7K in weight, is using the links a good idea?


Expert Reply:

You can use quick connect links, but the Tow Ready # 348749M aren't the best choice since they have a 5000-lbs break strength. Since you're likely using 10k chains, I recommend using the Blue Ox 1/2" Quick Link for Safety Chains # BX229-0512 which are rated for 10k and will provide you with a solution that you don't have to sweat being close to capacity on.
