Does the EcoHitch for 2018 Tesla Model 3 Have Safety Chain Loops


Does this trailer hitch enable to use of safety chains? If so, where are the connections located.


Helpful Expert Reply:

Yes. The EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver # EH84GR has safety chain loops on the downward tube that the receiver will insert into. Since it sounds like you'll be towing, you will also need a wiring harness, ball mount and hitch ball.

For wiring I recommend using the Tekonsha ZCI # 119250KIT which allows you to clamp on to the vehicle's wiring instead of splicing in, so it's a great solution for vehicles with complicated electrical systems.

For a ball mount and hitch ball I recommend using something like the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # EBMK2416 since it comes with 2 hitch balls (2" and 2-5/16"), a ball mount that can be used in either 3" rise or 4" drop orientation, a hitch pin, clip and storage bag. I've linked a helpful article that outlines how you can measure to determine if you'll need a rise or drop ball mount that I recommend checking out, since the configuration mentioned above may not work for your trailer; you'll also want to know what the coupler size of the trailer you'll be towing is.

I've also linked some helpful installation videos of these parts, and our entire selection of ball mount kits and standalone ball mounts for you to have a look at if you need something different.
