Video Transcript for Curt Trailer Breakaway Kit C52020 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna take a look at the replacement cable and pin for the Curt Soft Trac I and Curt Soft Trac II trailer breakaway kits. A breakaway system is what'll activate your trailer's electric brakes if the trailer ever disconnects from your tow vehicle. This part here will replace the 48-inch-long cable and pull pin on your breakaway switch that came with the breakaway kit. This part is designed to work with the Curt Soft Trac I breakaway kits, which are the C52040 or C52041, and the Curt Soft Trac II breakaway kits, part number C52028 or C52026.The pin is a high temperature nylon pull pin, and the cable is a 48-inch long braided cable. Basically what happens .. now I happen to pull ...

here's the breakaway switch, and you can see here's the pin inserted, and then here's the cable. This is the part we're talking about. The pin basically inserts into the breakaway switch. This end of the cable right here would connect to your tow vehicle, so that's the trailer and tow vehicle lever disconnect. It'll pull the cable, which will pull that bin out of the breakaway switch, and it'll activate the brakes and bring your trailer to a stop.But that should do it on the review for the replacement cable and pin for the Curt Soft Trac I and Curt Soft Trac II trailer breakaway kits..

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


Perfect fit!

Still holding up with no problems.

Correct replacement part, great price, purchased a spare


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.
Mike - 05/18/2018


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!


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.


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


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.


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


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


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


Worked perfect and got my trailer back on the road.


Happy with service and all the parts I buy..


looked around locally and could not believe the price. Found it here for a bargain. worked perfectly


Just as described, excellent product


Everything was there,packed like Fort K nox.


Fits perfectly


Item was on vendor backorder, was contacted and was ok with that.

Still working just fine

  • 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 Bargman # 54-85-002 Curt # C52020 You can also just replace the entire switch with # 2005-P if you prefer.

  • 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...
