Video Transcript for Blue Ox Safety Chains and Cables BX229-0512 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox threaded quick link for safety chains. The sturdy link is going to let you quickly attach a safety chain to your vehicle or base plate. It's got the threaded keeper right here. It just simply screws shut. It's very easy to operate when it comes to opening and closing. No tools are required, but if you would like to use a wrench to tighten and loosen, a 3/4 inch or a 19 millimeter wrench would work well for this unit.

It's made from a steel construction. It's going to have a zinc coating which is going to protect it from rusting corrosion. It's going to offer a maximum capacity of 10,000 lbs. The diameter, right here, is going to measure a half of an inch. The opening, if we take a measurement of this gap right here, that opening measures about 9/16 of an inch. I do want to point out that the threaded portion right here has a collar at the top of it that's a little bit larger in diameter then compared to the actual link.

Again, the link is a half inch diameter. The threaded portion, that collar at the top is going to have a diameter of about 9/16 of an inch. We're going to go ahead and go over the internal and external measurements. Do the internal link measurement first. That's going to give us a measurement of about 3 1/4 inches.

Measuring from here to here, that's going to be about 15/16 of an inch, then measuring from the flat side of that barrel. This is the barrel right here, measuring from that flat side to this point here, that's going to give us a measurement of about 13/16 of an inch. The external measurements, outside edge to outside edge, we're looking at about 4 1/4. Outside edge to outside edge going this way, we're looking at about 2-2 1/16 of an inch. That's going to do it for today's look at the Blue Ox threaded quick link for safety chains..

Works perfect to allow hooking my safety chains of all 3 of my trailers to my 2017 Ford F-250 SD trailer hitch 562529

Big, big enough to fit the hitch platform on my 2018 Silverado HD. No more trying to get the little punny safety chain hooks on trailers to hook up. 615254

The quick connectors are still working great a year later even though they have always been stored outside in the elements. Very high quality item.

Worked great , solved the problem. My trailer chains were just to short for the hitch on my 2017 GMC 2500HD. Perfect solution , I leave them on the hitch and connect the chains to them 10,000 lbs strong 628623

Just threaded these links on and now I don't have to worry about chains being able to fit on my OEM hitch. These are over-rated at 10k lbs which is more than I'd be towing and I feel really secure with that extra as not the weak link. 730264

  • Quick Link Needed for 7,600 lb Safety Chains
    The Blue Ox 1/2" Quick Link # BX229-0512 that you referenced is perfect for use with the 7,500 lb Blue Ox safety chains # BX88197 or # BX88208. This quick link has a 10,000 lb weight capacity so it will not limited the capacity of your safety chains. If you are needing a quick connect for a different application then I recommend the Safety Chain Quick Link # 49135 which is rated for 10,000 lbs and has a 3,300 lb safe working load limit. Both parts come in a quantity of 1 so you need...

    The Fulton Safety Chain Quick Link, 1/2" 10K # 49135 have the 10,000 lbs break strength and 3,300 lbs working load limit but are not available in stainless steel. They are zinc coated to prevent corrosion.

  • Replacement S-Hooks for Trailer Safety Chains
    We can offer you replacement S-hooks with keepers for your trailer's safety chains. You'll just need to find a suitable saw (or helper who can bend the S hook open) to remove the old ones. We have S-hooks in 7/16-inch size # C81820, 17/32-inch # C81830 and 3/8-inch # C81810. You can certainly use a clevis hook like # 6495-301-04 or a Quick Link such as # BX229-0512 if you prefer these over the S-hooks. Cutting your chains down to the correct length will not reduce their capacity so...
