Review of Andersen Accessories and Parts AM3109


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number AM3109. These are the safety chains for a Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapters. Safety chains are going to be a necessary precaution when you are towing. They're going to attach to your Ranch Hitch Coupler Adapter when installed on a 5th-Wheel trailer. They're going to work with both the straight and offset models. It's going to include everything you see on the table, so you're going to get the safety chain, and the mounting brackets, the hooks, all the necessary hardware for a complete installation. The product's made in the U.S.A.

The chain and the hooks are going to be made from a steel construction. They're going to have a nice chromate finish to resist rust and corrosion. It's going to be a Grade 70 chain that has a link diameter of 5/16 of an inch. They're going to have the forged steel hooks. These have the nice safety latch design to it, so it's going to prevent accidental disconnecting. When I took a measurement from the center of the bolt, I stretched the chain out from the center of the bolt to the center of the hook area.

That gave us a measurement of about 36 inches long, that's going to be the same on either side. These chains have been tested, and they meet the standards for up to 18,000 pounds when it comes to the capacity. The setup, simply clamps around the Ranch Hitch Coupler, and it's going to provide two chains that have the hooks at the ends. That simply attaches to the safety chain loops in the bed of your truck. To show you, on each side we're going to have the same components. You're going to have your chain, you're going to have your bolt, lock nut, and then your spacers.

You need to make sure that it goes through the link, the spacer goes on each side of that link in the chain, and then you tighten the lock nut all the way down. You're adapter portion is going to fit right inside that clamp. Very simple installation, and it's ready to go right out of the box. That's going to do it for today's review of part number AM3109. This is the safety chain kit for the Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter from Andersen. .
