Item is built well and fits both my chain and hook eye on the bow of my boat. Chain connection required a small shackle as links were too small.


I hadn't seen these particular safety chain hooks before. They looked like exactly what I needed. The price sealed that thought. I received them in less than a week which is great for where I live. The hooks are heavy built and worked great. I do need to contact your company and discuss some other hooks for some of my other trailers. I do intend to do business with etrailers in the future. Thanks for the good service.

Fantastic. I bought more of the same for my other trailers. Now they are all the same and work perfectly. Thanks for a great product and a very good price. David M

Heavy duty. Probably 4x’s the capacity I’ll ever need. Good quality.


Just exactly what I needed for my military trailer hookup to be legal. Thanks for the great product at a fair price.

still use them weekly when towing my trailer. Love them!!

I found etrailer to have a great selection and service. I really appreciated the product use videos which helped insure I selected the proper size hitch for my vehicle. I received the product quickly in just a few days. I use two trailers requiring a different size hitch ball of 1-7/8 and 2 inches. I am looking forward to being able to switch the set-up with the Convert-A-Ball in just a few seconds without having to use wrenches.


These hooks with safety latch were purchased as replacements for ones that were damaged on safety cables while towing a vehicle behind a motor home. The weight rating is much higher than will ever be needed, but it's good to know they will never break. The product is well made and easy to use. I order from e-trailer because they have what I want when I need it. Products are shipped in a timely manner, and that's important because some items are not available locally.


Great product - makes it easy to move up or down trailer safety chain to ensure appropriate length - hooks onto truck easily and securely. One question I did not ask and should have is how big must the chain link be to allow this hook to insert through it. My estimate NOW is 9/16 or larger - this only fits one of my three sets of trailer safety chains. Will probably upgrade my other chains to be able to use this hook.


Products work great the bigger hooks make it quick and easy to snap on you hooking up to the vehicle the coil cables was great makes it quick and easy don't have to wrap around everything or worry about them dragging the ground the plates I put on the tow bar made it nice and easy and quick to hook up to as I deliver RVs for a living I'm constantly hooking and unhooking my car two different motorhomes please make it quick and easy and they pretty much roll right back up and makes it easy to grab in the store in the back of the car


Received my chain hooks in a timely manner as I have come to expect from ETrailer. They look to be extremely durable.

One is good. The second the spring closer failed.

This safety latch fit perfectly on the Curt trailer hitch that I had installed on my 2017 Santa Fe. It is made of high quality materials, and arrived promptly.


Low quality, the wire-thin control for the clip would wear out quickly with not many applications, I fear it would not stay latched on my hitch.


Needed to extend the safety chains on my 26' Travel Trailer, and these clips fit the bill. Again, whenever I get stuff from E-Trailer, it's always better / "beefier" / higher quality than I expected, unlike many online suppliers where the products fall short of the description, promises or claims. Thanks E-Trailer.


These came in handy when one of our other spring loaded clips broke off. These fit right in the chains I'm using and for what I'm towing they're not going anywhere. They are big so make sure you have room for them before you make the purchase.


I purchased four of these safety chain hooks, and they appear to be exactly as they were represented. Service and delivery were both excellent.

Thank you


Very stout hook, probably a little overkill for my application but better to be safe then sorry. Used these in conjunction with the safety cable extensions.


Have bought several trailer/towing related items from etrailer and the quality and service (especially quick delivery) if first rate. Highly reccommended!!!


These hooks are exactly what I wanted for my safety cables. Great price and excellent quality.


great product, great shipping time. I would recommend to anyone. great product line.


These safety latches made hooking up a tow vehicle very fast and easy !


Looks very capable but was much bigger than expected. Cannot be judged online for the size. I'm planning on returning it.


Great hooks for safety cables and they arrived fast


Excellent quality, well discribed. Prompt shipping and tracking. Lowest cost and shipping.


Just as described. Very heavy duty. Will by from etrailer again.


Not installed yet but is just what
we need to make the repair to one of our


This is definitely what I've been looking for, couldn't find them any where. Great quality and the price was very reasonable. They will serve the purpose!
