Review of the Curt Single Hook Coiled Safety Cables


Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt single-hook coiled safety cables with S-hooks. Part number C80176. These safety cables are going to be a great replacement for your old, rusty or broken safety chains. Here you can see on our test drive the safety cables are not dragging or clanging around. They're perfectly tracking our tow vehicle. This will help them remain smooth and quiet.

One of our customers said they don't have to worry about pulling up on the campsite super early and waking everybody up. These are nice and quiet compared to noisy chains. They're a braided steel construction with a nylon coating, so we're not going to have any rust and corrosion. Like safety chains, these safety cables are going to act as a backup should your trailer become uncoupled from your tow vehicle.What's nice about these cables is the coil design is going to prevent any dragging when connected like you would see with most link styled chains. The same goes for when they're not in use.

They're not going to be resting in the mud or the moist grass furthermore causing corrosion. On one end, we have a large S type hook, so it's going to work with most safety chain connections. It even features a gate so it won't accidental become disconnected. On the other end, we have a loop so we can connect it to our trailer. Here you can see on this application, we have a welded on bracket with a bolt going through.

Now, you will have to provide your own hardware. Now, in connecting them to your tow loops on your hitch, it's a good idea to cross them just like you would your standard safety chains. This is going to create a cradle so it catches your coupler should it come disconnected from your tow vehicle.They feature a 7500 pound weight rating. The overall length from hook to hook is 42 inches long. Another great thing about the nylon coating is it's not going to harm or scratch your towing setup, and I personally like that it's not going to tear up my hands.

That's going to complete our look at the Curt single hook coiled safety cables with S-hooks. Part number C80176.
