Video Transcript for Clevis Hook with Latch Review

AJ: What's up, everybody It's AJ with Today, we're going to be checking out some clevis hooks from Laclede. We have two different sizes, five sixteenths and three eighths right here. We're going to go ahead and use these on some safety chains for our gooseneck. Let's take a closer look.When choosing the right hook for you, you want to keep in mind the weight rating. See the one we picked today was the five sixteenths as a weight rating of 3,900.

And the slightly bigger one in three eighths has a weight rating of 5,400. So just keep that in mind when you're trying to choose what you're going to use it for. These hooks are made out of a grade 43 steel. When you're looking for something a little bit more than that, I can say that I've also working with the Titan chains or the CURT version of these hooks and they have a slightly higher grade rating on the steel. Plus, they're zinc plated.

So that gives you some other options to look at on our website.I've got it set up here to show you exactly what we're using. We have safety chains here going from our gooseneck. They're going to attach to our loops here. So which hook are we going to want to go with Now, the measurement on the hooks isn't for the hook part. It's actually for the clevis pin down here at the bottom.

So it says how big that is to work with what chains to work with. So this one's probably better for three eighths chains. We found that the five sixteenths one's actually going to be perfect for what we need today.I'm just going to try to install it. We pop that one Cotter pin out. And we're going to run it through the link of the chain and through the hook at the bottom.

We'll just set up this chain from the clevis pin through the other side. And then, we'll put in our Cotter pin. Now, once the Cotter pins in, you're going to want to bend these arms to both sides. That way it helps stay it in place. Just go ahead and try and bend it around the clevis pin just like that. Then can't pull the Cotter pin out and it's going to stay attached to our chain.Now, with the spring latch here, we're going to attach it to our loop. It's nice and attached to our safety chain loop. The hook's not too big. It fits in there nice. It's good and attached. Let's put some pressure on that spring latch to make sure. You can see even if it, for some reason, shifts around in your truck and the pressure goes on the latch, it's still going to stay there. It's not going to just push it open or pry it open like that. It wouldn't do that from me pulling on it. I have to actually give it a little bit of a force to push that in. Just to get it to attach or detach.Keeping all those things in mind though, the hooks are going to work the same as long as you pick the right one for you. They're in a step above regular steel hook because without that latch, you'd have it latched down. You could tighten down. And yeah. It'd be nice and tight and probably nothing would happen or you put it in those loops. But I'd always be afraid of any bump I hit would loosen it, loosen it, loosen it until it popped out. I don't like that, especially when you're towing something so heavy. You got that latch in there with these. You know it's not to pop out. The chain is going to be in the middle of it. And then, all those bumps, doesn't matter. It's going to pop around in here. Never going to come out. It's not going to come undone. So I like this and it gives me confident going down the road. That about does it for our look at the Laclede clevis hooks. Hope this helped.

Clevis Hook with Latch, 5/16" - 6495-301-04

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


I’ve been looking around for a heavy duty hook big enough for hooking up my trailer. I found the perfect one from Their measurement and description helped.


Exactly as advertised, fits my trailer chains, strong spring action with substantial metal on the clasp. Delivery was faster than expected.


Ordered cleavis hook with safety latch to replace hook without latch. New hooks were shipped promptly and are exactly what I expected. Great service!


Rec'd chain as promised with 3 extra hooks. Service was fast and accurate.


Searched hardware stores but no one had a hook this strong for its size


Very heavy duty and clips on truck hitch great. So far good.


We have had them for 2 tour seasons now and there have been absolutely no problems.


Product was exactly as described and meets our needs perfectly

  • Comparing SWL And WLL For Clevis Hooks
    You will need to know what the diameter of the chains you have are and how much room you have in the link for a hook to be attached. It sounds like the 5/16 you mentioned is the diameter of the chain itself, and not the opening in the link. The Clevis hook, part # 6495-401-04 has a 7/16-inch diameter pin that goes through the opening in a chain link and has a working load limit of 5,400 lbs. The # 6495-301-04 hook also has a 7/16-inch pin, and has a working load limit of 3,900 lbs....

  • Recommended Clevis Hook for a Winch and Safety Chains
    I do have options for you but the Curt S-Hook with Wire Keeper part # C81820 is not going to be the best solution for your winch's cable/strap or safety chains. Instead, for the winch I recommend using a clevis hook like part # 6495-401-04 and for the safety chains I recommend using a clevis hook like part # 6495-301-04. The clevis hooks are a much better design for both your winch's cable/strap and safety chains. I have attached a review video of each clevis hook for you as well.

  • Safety Chain Clevis Hooks Available in Various Sizes to fit Touareg Safety Chain Eyelet
    I have a few options for you to consider, but I do not have the exact specs of the safety chain loops on your Touareg so you would need to pick from the following to see which would be the best solution. We have Clevis hooks in various diameters that will attach to your safety chains. Here they all are: For a 3/8 inch hook we have the # 6495-401-04 For a 5/16 inch hook we have the # 6495-301-04 For a 7/16 inch hook we have the part # C81970 For a 5/8 inch hook part # C81920

  • Is Clevis Hook 6495-301-04 Compatible with Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks 49150
    On the Clevis Hook with Latch, 5/16" Item # 6495-301-04 the pin that would go through a chain link is 7/16 inches in diameter like you said. That means that the internal width of a chain link would have to be at or a little above 7/16 inches in order for the pin to go through the link. For safety chains # 49150 the metal of the links is 5/16 inches but the opening in a link is a hair under 1/2 an inch and so they would work with # 6495-301-04. You could also use Safety Chain with Quick...

  • Can I Switch a Cable for a Strap on the DL25001
    We have a good solution for you but the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch w/ Remote - 3,000 lbs part # DL25001 does not have the accommodation for a strap. Instead I recommend using the Replacement Synthetic Rope for Bulldog Winch Trailer and ATV/UTV Winches - 1/4" x 50' part # BDW20095 . While this is a longer rope it allows you to cut it to the length you want so you will likely be able to extend its reach. When cutting it be sure to melt the cut end and wrap it back up to prevent...

  • Where is Titan Chain 5/16 Inch Clevis Hook Made
    The Titan Chain Clevis Hook with Spring Loaded Latch for Chain with 5/16" Thick Links - 4,700 lbs # TCSLIP-G70-8-L you asked about is made in China. For a similar clevis hook that is made in the USA you can use the Laclede Chain Clevis Hook with Latch, 5/16" # 6495-301-04 I have added links below to a couple video reviews for you to check out as well

  • Replacement S-Hooks for Trailer Safety Chains
    We can offer you replacement S-hooks with keepers for your trailer's safety chains. You'll just need to find a suitable saw (or helper who can bend the S hook open) to remove the old ones. We have S-hooks in 7/16-inch size # C81820, 17/32-inch # C81830 and 3/8-inch # C81810. You can certainly use a clevis hook like # 6495-301-04 or a Quick Link such as # BX229-0512 if you prefer these over the S-hooks. Cutting your chains down to the correct length will not reduce their capacity so long...
