Went with the 4' model. As with most things I am never near or around what I am trying to order for when I am in the ordering something mindset. I think this will work out. Line is close to tight when fully extended to where it needs to hook up, so we will see after the first outing if this length is good or I need the 6'. Install was easy. Just cut the old wire off and looped the keyring through the existing loop on the breakaway controller. 553131

This is EXACTLY what I needed. Being universal, it’s perfect. Definitely recommend!! 447612

The breakaway cable was delivered fast and efficiently. It was easy to mount to the trailer and just have to test it by hooking the van to the trailer to see if I ordered the correct size. It comes in a 4 ft and 6 ft size. The new breakaway cable that is coiled should solve the dragging problem the old non coiled cable created. 389360

We had a plastic coated aircraft cable that was OEM on our amusement trailer. Unfortunately, the cable was far too long, drug the roadway and eventually broke. As a prior customer of etrailer.com, I looked here first for just such a piece of safety equipment. It was exactly what we needed, stays up and out of the way when not attached to our tow vehicle. It was easier than trying to build a replacement cable! the cable is built solidly, the split ring is beefier than you'd think by looking at just the photos and the carabiner clip locks securely onto our tow vehicle. Shipping, as usual with etrailer.com, was lightning fast. My overall experience, with this and other purchases, has always been excellent. I even got to visit the warehouse for a pick-up on a trip in Feb, 2014! The folks are as nice in person as they are over the phone, through email or even online chat help. 265527

Just received my coil breakaway cable, I bought a new trailer in less than 4 months my cable snapped . The breakaway cable is perfect because it does not drag and will not get caught under trailer jack going up driveways. The only concern I have is the thickness of the breakaway cable seams awful thin, but I'm sure it has been thoroughly tested. 446454

On the way home from a recent camping trip, my trailer's original equipment safety brake cable frayed completely in two. This looks like the perfect solution. I haven't had it on the road yet, but it was easy to install. 423276


Comments

After a year on the road, this cable is working just fine. I was a little concerned at first that it doesn’t have much slack at all, but that doesn’t seem to be a problem.

Really nice & simple shortcut to trailer hitching. Cleans up the overall appearance of the attachments - chains, electrical umbilical, and breakaway connection, and makes it faster. We'll just have to see as far as durability goes. So far so good a year later. 479741

The coiled cord is a much better product than the straight cable supplied with my tow bar assembly. This allows for a straight run from the RV to the towed vehicle. The original had to be routed through channels and when being moved could easily pull the wires out of the connection. 481961

Always a great product for a great price!!!! We have ordered multiple times and the shipping is fast and the items are always what we expected. We are going to tell our friends about etrailer.com and let them be as satisfied as we are... Thanks and keep it up! 414055

If your' looking to buy something and need it quickly, etrailer is the place to get it. *** This is a great little device. I installed the Fastway Zip Coiled Breakaway Cable on a previous camper trailer and now, bought it for my present camper trailer. It's a simple installation and is out of the way(not dangling around) when not in use. Thanks etrailer!! 456995

This item is excellent for keeping the cable out of the chains way. Ive always had the issue of the cable dragging or getting under the receiver and getting cut. This prevents that and keeps out of way when getting into our cutaway van-no tripping hazard. 303351

Emergency trailer brake cord works great! Cord coils up so it does not drag, and has heavy duty clip on hitch end and split ring for brake controller end. Would definitely recommend! 524654

Easy to install. Much better that having the cable hanging and getting caught on the hitch. The old one stopped me cold in a rest area once. Took me almost a minute to figure out what had happened. Seemed like an hour. No more worries. 479112

I got tired of having the thin wire cable that came on the trailer always hanging down and it had frayed slightly so quite often I got poked in the finger with the frayed wire. This product stops that problem. No more slack cable hanging down and no more poked fingers. When not using the trailer, the coiled cable stays neatly out of the way. 589925
