Are Curt Safety Chains Reliable And Safe For Use On A Trailer?


I am interested in Curt safety towing chains. I keep reading that they are assembled in China. Is this a red flag? Are these chains going to as reliable and safe as towing chains made in the USA?


Expert Reply:

You are correct that the Curt safety chains like the Curt Safety Chains with Latching Hooks # C19749 are made over seas, but that does not mean they are not still a quality part. Quite a few manufacturers of chains actually use products from over seas.

With that said the Curt # C19749 still meets the expectations of what you expect from a Curt products and I would not be hesitate to use them on a trailer. You will want to make sure that the chains meet or exceed the GVWR of your trailer. The # C19749 has a weight capacity of 5000lbs so as long as that exceeds the GVWR of your trailer you will be just fine.

If you would prefer a safety chain that is made in the USA, we offer the 35" Long Safety Chain with Clevis Slip Hook, 5,400 lbs # 1483-535-04 which will be a quality product as well.

I included videos for both of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
