Trailer Safety Chains

Safety chains attach to a trailer tongue to prevent runaway trailers. Safety chains hook onto the vehicle’s hitch or frame to keep the trailer connected to the vehicle if the trailer tongue slips off or breaks away from the trailer ball. A runaway trailer could cause serious injury and damage. Safety chains need to be attached loose enough so they do not bind when turning, but tight enough so they do not drag on the road. Warning: Never tow anything without properly attaching approved safety chains.
