Weight Limit for the Safety Chain Quick Link part # 49135


Can you clarify the different between the capacity 10,000 lbs and the safe working load limit 3,300 lbs on these quick links? I am looking for a quick link to attach the chains of my horse trailer to my truck, because the snaps on the trailer chains will not fit around the slats on the hitch. The trailer weighs about 7,000 lbs max when fully loaded and I dont want something that might fail when I really need it. Thanks


Expert Reply:

The capacity of 10k lbs that the Safety Chain Quick Link part # 49135 that you referenced has is the capacity relative to it's use as safety chain component.

Basically, the quick link actually has a 10k capacity and would work well for you since your trailer weighs about 7,000 lbs.
