Review of the Roadmaster Hybrid Coiled-to-Straight Safety Cables


Today we're gonna be taking a look at the RoadMaster 80 inch Hybrid Coil Testrate Safety Cables. Safety cables are required in most states, and they're gonna be our last line of defense when we're flat towing a vehicle, to prevent it from becoming a runaway vehicle in the case of an accidental disconnection. They're gonna attach one side to the motor home and one side to your towed vehicle. Now these are gonna be a hybrid style cables, which means that we're gonna have a coiled section where we're gonna wound up right by the motor home. Once they go towards the car side they're gonna straighten out. These cables are gonna be ideal for any towers that have that guide channel in there, because it's gonna clean up the appearance and keep our cables form dragging the ground when we got too much slack.The cables themselves are made out of air craft grade galvanized steel cable.

They're gonna be strong and last us a long time, but also they put this vinyl coating around it so we're not gonna have to worry about scratching our tow bar. The hooks on each end of our cable are gonna be made of a drop forged steel. They're gonna have a spring loaded closure on them. For easy hookup and extra piece of mind once we do have it hooked up. Now on the towed vehicle side we are gonna have this quick link attached to our hook, that way we can feed our safety cables through the tow bar before we have the hook in place.

As you can see here we have a high/low adaptor installed. That brings everything out farther away from our motor home. We still have plenty of slack in our cable to get everything hooked up, because they're gonna be a total length of 80 inches.Now one important thing about safety cables when you're looking at them is gonna be the weight rating. Our safety cables here are rated for eight thousand pounds, but you wanna double check your vehicle's weight and all the other components in your flat tow setup to make sure they're up to the task. Keep in mind that's only gonna be one component you need for complete, safe flat tow setup.

For a complete setup you're gonna need a base plate, a tow bar, tow bar wiring, a braking system, and finally safety cables.That'll finish up your look at the RoadMaster 80 inch Hybrid Coil Testrate Safety Cables.
