Chain Hangers for Curt Weight Distribution Systems - Clamp On - C17003

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (10 Customer Reviews)

As an alternative to traditional lift brackets, these clamp-on chain hangers provide attachment points for your weight-distribution spring bars. The low-profile design limits interference with trailer-frame-mounted items. No drilling required.


I needed a narrower way to attach my weight distribution hitch chains, since I had added a locking box on my travel trailer front frame for new batteries and my 4KW inverter...The the old folding-style chain hook brackets were too wide to clear the box when folded up, and these were the answer.. (An added benefit was that I couldn't lose the pipe chain hook handle anymore!) Now, my locking DeeZee box should be able to stop those battery thieves, and even if they can get in, those big and heavy 6V group 27 AGM batteries won't do them a lot of good! These were perfect for my need to attain a vertical WDH chain setup after installing the battery box.. Good stuff!

Great! They were judt what zi needed!

This solved a big problem with towing my travel trailer I had to have this type of chain hanger because of the way the frame way made. This product worked perfectly


The chain Hangers I bought were much better than the pictures illustrate - being quite sturdy, and pretty easy to install. One thing that would improve them is a taper on the end of the attachment bolts long enough so the threads won't get damaged at all and these hangers could be moved easily to work on more than one trailer.

These products installed easily and worked well while I owned and used that trailer.They remained with the unit when I sold it about 2 moths ago

etrailer parts and products are Top Not ch!


Product was just as advertised. Fit perfectly. I looked at a 2 bolt verticle design and am glad I didn't buy them.(they were also 3X the money) These were just the right fit near my propane tanks. I would highly recommended this part and dealer. Shipping was fast and packaging was professional.

Still confidently working!

  • Bolt Sizes and Bracket Dimensions of Chain Hangers for Curt Weight Distribution Systems
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled Curt chain hanging brackets # C17003 to take some measurements. There are 2 sets of bolts included. The short set is 1/2-13 x 2 inches and the longer set is 1/2-13 x 3-1/2 inches. The brackets measure 4 inches long (measuring front to back along the trailer frame). They are 3-3/8 inches tall on the inside and 3-5/8 inches tall on the outside. And they are 3-3/16 inches deep on the inside, 3-13/16 inches deep on the outside. I have included a picture...

  • Would the Curt Chain Hanger part # C17003 fit 3 Inch Channel Trailer Frame
    Actually the inside width of the frame channels of the Curt Hangers part # C17003 that you referenced is 3-3/16 inches so it would only be a little bit wider than the 3 inch channel of your trailer frame. And even if your trailer was half an inch narrower than the hanger this kit comes with pretty long set screws to take up that distance. So to answer your question, yes this kit will work for you. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue...

  • Does the Trailer Need to Be Jacked Up to Install Chains on Chain Hangers # C17003
    Yes, you will need to use your trailer jack to jack up both the trailer and the rear of your vehicle so that you can attach the chains of your weight distribution system to the hangers # C17003 that you referenced. I attached an FAQ on weight distribution systems for you to check out as well.

  • Do Alternate Chain Lift Brackets C17003 Change Setup of Weight Distribution Hitch
    Using a different chain hanger bracket like # C17003 or # C17005 (that bolt on) for a weight distribution system may mean that the number of chain links will change. In this case the number of links does not matter; what matters is that the system be set up so that it still gives you the appropriate tension on the spring bars to level your vehicle and trailer.

  • Weight Distribution System for 5,000 Pound V-Nose Trailer
    For V-nose trailers like what you have that feature limited A-frame space, we typically recommend using chain hangers like the Curt # C17005 for a bolt-on installation or # C17003 for a clamp-on application. These will mount to the side of the trailer frame (instead of the top) to provide an alternate attachment point for the spring bars on a weight distribution system. Each weight distribution system will list a recommended distance from the hitch ball to where the lift brackets should...

  • Can Curt Chain Hanger Brackets be Used with a Pro Series Weight Distribution System
    Although each Weight Distribution (WD) system manufacturer has their own chain brackets, they are a pretty universal fit. The Curt hangers, parts # C17003, # C17005, and # C17008, haven't been tested with a Pro Series WD system but they should fit and work just fine. If you would rather go with chain hangers from Pro Series then you would need to go with part # PS58362.
