Video Transcript for Brophy Safety Chains and Cables MB38 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy Safety Chain Mounting Bracket. This mounting bracket welds securely to your trailer, and then it's going to provide an anchor point for your safety chain. It's made from a durable steel construction, it is unfinished so it's ready for welding, and you can paint it to match your trailer. We're going to take a look at some of the dimensions real quick, starting with the overall length, that's going to give us a measurement of about 4" long. The diameter of the unit's going to measure 3/8" in diameter. Taking a look at the opening, measuring from this curve here to the same point on the other side, that's going to give us a measurement of about 1-1/8", and if we take a measurement of the height of the opening, I'm just going to place a straight edge here along the bottom side and then we'll measure the gap that we have right there.

We can see that that's going to measure right on about 3/4". Again, the product is made in the USA and it has that nice steel construction with the raw finish. That's going to do it for today's look at the Brophy Safety Chain Mounting Bracket.

Excellent customer service! Original order was delivered with nothing in it. Parts had somehow come out in shipping. E-Trailer replaced the parts and upgraded the shipping at no charge. Will definitely do business with them again. The product is well made and perfect for connecting safety chains to any trailer. 725330

I want to thank you for all your help with my trailer you were more helpful than you realize. So this is my trailer for a 22' Flats Cat shallow draft Catamaran. I totally dismantled my trailer and buffed by hand with a wire buffer and sand blasted in some spots and applied multiple coats of some very expensive galvanize paint (Z.R.C.). I installed all new C. E. Smith Carpet (about 80'), seven new LED waterproof lights, new springs, new equalizers, new tongue jack, new wench, new safety chain, new chain brackets, all new SS hardware and a 35' long wiring harness. I was able to send only one review with a picture of the safety chain and brackets. I'm having a little trouble with the rest..oh some of these items were bought locally or from your competitors, until I found ETRAILER. Your prices were cheaper for the exact same things. Your helpful how to videos were helpful. And Rose, your personal helpful knowledge made my buying experience very pleasant, I actually enjoyed talking to you! Thanks to ETRAILER and specifically to Rose G. 497945

The safety chain bracket was exactly what I expected. My gooseneck trailer had only one safety chain when I purchased it used, and the safety chain links had been welded to the trailer. I sought out something to replace it with knowing that having only 1 safety chain was potentially not legal and that welding the chain links weakens them. I ended up ordering 2 of these brackets and 2 safety chains (FCHA0050324) from etrailer and they worked well together. The bracket is round so I ground a flat spot on it where it meets the trailer to make it easier to keep in position while welding it. 373470

  • Safety Chains and Cargo Tie Downs for 6 x 10-Foot Flat Deck Utility Trailer
    Thank you for the photo of your utility trailer that appears to already have safety chains installed near the coupler. Safety chains should be selected based on trailer weight and on the length you need. If your trailer has a 3500-lb-rated axle then chains like 60-inch 5K Curt part # C19749 would provide sufficient capacity and their latching hooks will make for easy attachment. If you prefer shorter chains you might prefer the 27-inch 5K # 2118-605-04. For a weld-on bracket you might...

  • Safety Chain, Quick Link and Chain Mount Recommendation for XLR Hyperlite Toy Hauler
    The parts you all mentioned would have enough capacity for the weight of your 9.9k toy hauler. The part # MB38 would work well for mounting the safety chains # 49150 with the quick link # 49135. Now where the part # MB38 should install on your trailer is going to be dependent on your trailer setup. I would put it on the trailer frame as near to the coupler as you can but you really should mock it up in a couple places to find where it would fit the best.

  • How to Relocate the Safety Chains on a 2012 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8315BSS
    If you are talking about not having room for a bolt-on application for your safety chains to connect to then we do have a solution for you! Attached is our list of safety chain mounting brackets that are weld-on applications. Simply filter through to find the appropriate one for your safety chains, like the Brophy # MB38 which is 4" with a 3/8" diameter. Please note that these must be installed by a professional welder.

  • Welding Safety Chain Mounting Brackets to Trailer for Coiled Safety Cables
    When using the Brophy Safety Chain Mounting Bracket # MB38 that you referenced, you will want to weld one to the trailer for each safety chain, for a total of two for the two chains. The bracket itself measures 4 inches long and 3/8 inch in diameter. These will work very nicely with the Curt Single Hook Coiled Safety Cables # C80176 that you mentioned and Quick Links like the Fulton # 49135.

  • Will Brophy Safety Chain Mounting Bracket MB38 Work with Safety Cables C80151
    The Brophy Safety Chain Mounting Bracket # MB38 will work with Safety Cables # C80151. I went to our warehouse and actually test-fit these two items to confirm they will work together.

  • Installing and Using Safety Chains on Tent Trailer
    To install and use safety chains on your trailer, I recommend first welding on mounting brackets like the Brophy Safety Chain Bracket # MB38 to the trailer. The bracket can then be used to a connect a quick link like the Fulton Safety Chain Link # 49135. With the Safety Chain Link attached, you will simply attach your chains like the Curt Single Hook # C80176 with S-Hooks. You should also make sure to cross the chains beneath the trailer coupler. This is so the crossed chains can...

  • Solution for Attaching Safety Chain Loop to Travel Trailer
    If the bolt you would be using to secure the safety chain is rated for the weight of the trailer you could go that route. I'd recommend haveing a welder come out and weld a Safety Chain Loop like part # MB38 to the frame though. Or if you can take the trailer to one that would be ideal.

  • Replacing Safety Chain Loops on Trailer That Broke Off
    Happy new year to you as well! The best way to replace (or add new) safety chain loops to your trailer frame is to simply have new ones like the Brophy # MB38 welded on. There's really not another good method for doing this that will ensure safe operation in the event of a breakaway situation. You can then add some Quick Links like # 49135 (if you don't already have them) to the loops that will hook up to your safety chains. I have attached a short video review on the Safety...

  • Safety Chain Weights Between Buyers Products Chains and Tow Ready
    The Buyers Products Chains part numbers # 337BSC3835 and # 337B03835SC both weigh 5 lbs and the part # TCTSCG30-730-04X1 weighs 2 lbs. For installing any of the mentioned chains we recommend using the weld on bracket # MB38 with the quick link part # 49135 on your trailer.

  • Torque Specs for 1/2 Inch Grade 8 Bolts to Install Demco Trailer Coupler DM14793-81
    Starting with the safety chains they really need to be attached to the trailer frame and not the coupler hardware. If there is no where to attach the chains on the trailer you can weld on safety chain mounting brackets such as # MB12, # MB38, or # MB58. For 1/2 inch Grade 8 bolts you will want to torque them to 115 foot pounds.

  • Safety Chain Mounts to Weld to a Trailer
    We have several different safety chain attachment brackets you could potentially use. I have included a link to them for you. It sounds like you are looking for something like # MB38. Keep in mind that this is raw steel. Welding to a dissimilar metal requires a professional, especially if the other metal is galvanized or zinc-coated because that can give off toxic fumes!

  • Why Dont Trailer Coupler Replacements Come with Safety Chain Loops
    Most couplers actually don't come with safety chain loops on them. Reason being that if for some reason the coupler came attached from the trailer you'd want the chains on the trailer frame so that they'd still be effective. Welding a couple of the part # MB38 loops on your trailer would work well.

If your truck has the standard or step bumper then the most popular option is Curt hitch # C14081. If it has the factory roll pan bumper then the most popular option is # 41522.
