Andersen Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters Parts - Safety Chain Kit - RM3230 Review


Ellen: Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and we're taking a quick look at the Andersen Ultimate Safety Chain Kit. This gives you everything that you need to replace the bolts on your coupler or your king pin coupler, to make sure that you get these attachment points that gives you a place to locate your clevis hooks or the shackles to attach your chains from your trailer to your vehicle. It's always a good idea to have safety chains are there as a backup, just in case there's anything that goes wrong, in case there's an accidental disconnect. So you have that secondary system to hold everything together while you get to safety and make sure that everything is taken care of. So let's look a little closer at each thing and talk a little bit more about what comes with the kit.

So we'll have our two chains. One end has our big clevis hook there.This is a 5/16th inch clevis hook with the forged steel, has a nice coating on it to help protect from rust or corrosion. The other end is just a link. So you can use the shackles that this comes with to attach it either to the point on your vehicle, safety chain loops on your vehicle or to these eyelets there. It doesn't really matter which way you do it just as long as each is attached securely or each end of the chain is attached securely.

So one end of the shackle is threaded. So you want to make sure you put it through there. These are going to be a half inch shackle. Our chains measure at 32 and a half inch long with the hook in place. Just the chain by itself is 35 inches long.

The break strength that this kit is rated for is 24,000 pounds although the safe working load limit is 4,700 pounds or 4,700 pounds.That's pretty much all there is to it. One last thing I want to tell you for the install. Whenever you're putting these in place, you do have to replace the bolts in that coupler pit assembly. And for the one that's going on the side with your remote cable release, you want to make sure you put it through with this guy away from that. So you don't block it or cause any interference between the two.That's very much everything we have to talk about with the Andersen Ultimate Safety Chain Kit.

I hope this video has been helpful for looking at this kit to make sure it's what you need. We do have a lot of other towing accessories and other truck accessories in general here at etrailer.com. So check them out. Thanks for watching.
