Video Transcript for Curt Soft Trac Trailer Breakaway Kits Cable and Pin Replacement Review

What's up, everybody It's AJ with Today, we're gonna be checking out this breakaway cable replacement part for the CURT Breakaway Switch. It's gonna be 48 inches long. Let's check it out. It's gonna be a steel cable with nylon coating on the outside. That's really important because these cables are thin, and if that nylon coating wears down, it can rust and corrode and then snap on you.

So it's always good to check these yearly to make sure it's still got the coating on there and there's no signs of rust. It's gonna be a universal fit for the brake controllers as well. So I know I said it's for the CURT brake controller, but it works with several other ones. So you just look at your fitting there, and if it's like that it's gonna fit. Since this is a steel cable, it's gonna be 48 inches long.

You might have to loop up a little bit of it if you have too much because you don't want it dragging on the ground or catching on anything when you're offloading. Now, there are other options out there. There's a coiled design breakaway cable, and it'll stay more tight when you have it plugged in and put on the vehicle. That way it's not dragging on the ground. Overall, that's a quick look at this replacement breakaway cable.

Hopefully, you go out and look at yours and make sure there's no rust on there, or order this if there is so you can quickly replace it so there's no issues down the road. Well, I think that does it. Thanks for hanging out and hope this helped.

Replaces the 48" long cable with pull pin on the breakaway switch that came with your Curt Soft Trac trailer breakaway kit.


Like new again. Fit right in. Was a little shorter above the mount, and a little longer below the mount as the old one it replaced. But cranked up all the way it looks like it will be out of the way.

I repainted the A frame so while I was doing that I painted the bottom black as the zinc at the bottom usually wears out and rust starts. Replaced the hitch pin with a stainless bolt and lock nut. Bolted it in with new stainless hardware.

Brake safety like new again. Sure the battery will be good I ordered, just want to take the junk scotch locks out and solder the wires before I install it. Why do they use those things cheap skates. Already did 80%of the lights just to avoid future problems.


My old cable was in two and even tho this is not the same type of breakaway I have it still will work. Just had to hook the old pin into the new loop. Could not go to the Hardware store and replace for this price.


Exact fit. Quality looks good. Hopefully never have to use it, but if trailer ever comes unhooked from the truck, I'm confident that it will work


The product I purchased was exactly what i needed. But more than that, I must comment etrailer for an impeccable customer service experience. The rep (Phyllis L?) proactively reached out to me to correct my order and prevent the shipment of a part that i selected that probably would not have worked, performed the exchange and took care of everything. Really excellent. Thank you!


Product received as advertised and shipping only took a few days. Fits perfectly. Will order from etrailer again.



Working great and have had no issues.


this is a quality replacement. The cable was longer than expected and more than adequate for any towing setup we have.


We placed our order for parts, the order was processed same day and shipped the next. We were pleasantly surprised when our order arrived early! Great experience and will definitely order from again.
Thank you


Very happy with Break-away cable. Would buy again.


Good quality products at reasonable prices. I was especially pleased with the order status updates I received as my order was processed and shipped. I was notified that one product was not in stock and the manufacturer had a delivery date in a few weeks. I was given some other product options for that item. That's excellent customer service. Thank you etrailer.


Product fit perfectly! Great price and service! I have purchased several different items from etrailer and will continue to purchase in the future.


My cable had become damaged and I got this for a replacement, worked perfectly.

  • Will Curt Replacement Cable and Pin Fit Breakaway Kit On 1980 Rockwood Freedom Camper
    The Replacement Cable and Pin, part # C52020 may work on the breakaway kit on your camper but you will need to verify the breakaway unit you have to make sure. This pin is designed to fit Curt Soft Trac I part # C52040 or # C52041, or Soft Trac II # C52028 or # C52026. If your breakaway kit is one of these then the # C52020 will work for you.

  • Replacement Breakaway Switcch Key for Curt Breakaway System
    Typically breakaway switch keys, like the Roadmaster # RM-200200-20 you mentioned, are pretty universal so this will likely work, but it hasn't been tested out so I can't confirm this on my end. Instead, I recommend just going with a Curt brand replacement so you know for sure that it will fit. You'll need part # C52020 if you have a Soft Trac I or II, or part # C49BR for any other Curt breakaway switches.

  • Replacement Breakaway Cable for 2016 R-Pod 180
    Trailer breakaway kits are not trailer-specific but a replacement part like the pin and cable does need to match your current breakaway setup. We have such items for Hopkins, Tekonsha, Curt and others and you'll see them all on the linked page. Just match the pin and cable by brand. Here are popular examples of this replacement part: Hopkins # HM20051 Tekonsha # 2010-A Bright Way # 3802350 Curt # C52020 You can also just replace the entire switch with # 3802348 if you prefer. The switches...

  • Can Breakaway Pin be Pulled to Help Prevent Trailer From Being Stolen
    At first glance that is a great idea but if you want to keep a trailer from being stolen your best defense is installing a lock or multiple locks so that potential thieves see that your rig is more challenging than the next. You mentioned Blue Ox but the only thing they have with a breakaway kit is the Patriot # BLU37TR which installs in a towed vehicle that can be locked so I believe you are referring to a kit like the Hopkins # HM20001 which installs on a trailer. Either way, the stored...
