Helpful Expert Reply:

Yes you can use safety cables in place of safety chains as long as they are rated for the weight of the trailer. Chains are typically a little easier to use in this application though since you can manipulate the length of them easier by twisting them but you can use a cable set like the part # C80151 if you wanted. These have a 5,000 lb capacity.
