Video Transcript for Fastway Trailer Breakaway Kit FA80-01-2160 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Break-Away Cable. The coiled design is going to keep your break-away cable from dragging on the ground. No more frayed ends and there's no need to loop the cable around the trailer tongue to keep it away from the groun. The coiled cable, once its all the way installed, is going to offer a better, cleaner look as well. This is a universal fit. It's going to work as a replacement cable for almost any pin style trailer break-away system. When you're ready to replace your old cable, just cut off your old cable at the switch pin and then thread the pin onto the zip cable's integrated split ring. On this end we're going to have the included carabiner.

That's going to make it easy to clip the cable to the tow vehicle. The cable itself is made from a high strength woven steel. It's a high strength cable and it's going to have a UV protective coating that's going to really increase or boost durability and it's scratch resistant, meaning that it's not going to scratch anything that it comes into contact with. The overall length of the unit when it's stretched out is going to be up to 6 feet long. That's going to do it for today's look at the Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Break-Away Cable.

The coiled breakaway cord is great. Doesn't drag on pavement like the usual cords do. Don't know why all trailers Don't come with this product standard 461985

All my orders with etrailer have been 5star. George notifies you of any problems and keeps you posted on status of your order. The website is hands-down the best. The worst websites are without a doubt Lazy days and Camping World. Don't know why they waste their time. Great job etrailer. I have another order in process right now. 301467

Had the 4 footer on my popup, bought a larger trailer and needed a longer cable. This cable is great, it's coiled up and tangle free when not being used, neat with no sagging when in use. 272409

This rv emergency brake cable is exactly what I was looking for. It is coiled so that it will not drag or fray. I went to the rv dealer for a cable and they did not carry them or have any type of cable to use. 406688

I love this breakaway cable. I had one on my travel trailer. When I upgaded to a 5th wheel the long cable that came with the trailer caught on the hitch and pulled out activating the emergency breaks. Luckily I was just backing it into the yard. This cable keeps it from hanging. 300335

This is exactly what I needed to connect by breakaway switch to the truck. It keeps the wire tight and will not drag on the ground. It is also read and serves as a visual reminder. Too bad it does not include one of the plastic switch keys. 80671

Review from a similar Fastway Coiled Breakway Cable in Accessories and Parts


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

Review from a similar Fastway Coiled Breakway Cable in Accessories and Parts


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

Review from a similar Fastway Coiled Breakway Cable in Accessories and Parts


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

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Breakaway Cable Recommendation
  • Yes, the Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Breakaway Cable # FA80-01-2160 that you referenced would work well as a replacement breakaway cable for your trailer. You would just need to remove your cable and clip this cable on and you would be ready to go. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also.

  • Recommended Fastway Coiled Cable Breakaway Cable for 5th Wheel Trailer
  • You can use either a 4 foot cable like # FA80-01-2140 or a 6 foot cable like # FA80-01-2160. Either will work well on a 5th wheel trailer. Where you mount the breakaway on the trailer will dictate the best location for you to allow trailer turning and also a quick engagement if your trailer were to breakaway from your tow vehicle. If you don't have the entire assembly, you can use # FA80-00-2040 for the 4 foot cable or # FA80-00-2060 for the 6 foot cable. I've attached an article...

  • Should the Breakaway Cable be Shorter or Longer Than the Safety Chains
  • I would recommend that the breakaway cable be cut shorter than the safety chains/cables that way if the trailer were to come uncoupled from the hitch ball it would come to a stop without slamming into the back of the tow vehicle. For a breakaway switch cable I really like the Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Breakaway Cable part # FA80-01-2140 for 4' long or part # FA80-01-2160 for 6' long as the coiled design keeps it free from dragging or fraying. I have also attached a list of our safety...

  • Replacement Cable for Trailer Breakaway System
  • Trailer breakaway cables are not specific to any given brand of system so you can refer to the linked page that shows many such replacement cables such as 4-foot # FA80-01-2140 and 6-foot # FA80-01-2160.

  • Could Coiled Breakaway Cable by Fastway Fit Puma Travel Trailer
  • Yes, you could use the Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Breakaway Cable # FA80-01-2140 that you referenced on your travel trailer. This is a universal design that can basically fit any breakaway kit as long as the length of the cable is adequate. The length of this is 4 feet. For 6 feet you'd instead want the part # FA80-01-2160.
