Today, we're going to be taking a look at the replacement cable and nylon pin assembly, this is going to fit Tekonsha #2010 breakaway switch. This is going to come with one cable, and one pin, the cable is going to measure about 49 inches long, the cord is a woven or braided steel that's very strong and durable, and it's going to feature a nice protective coating that's going to keep it from fraying, and it's going to keep it from scratching anything that it comes into contact with. On this end, you're going have the pin that goes into the breakaway switch, and on this end you're going to have a loop, that way you can easily get it connected to the tow vehicle. That's going to do it for today's look at the replace cable and nylon pin assembly that fits into Tekonsha #2010 breakaway switch.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (120 Customer Reviews)


The service from this company has been absolutely the best on every order. Very personable for an online experience. That’s a nice touch too. Makes me wish I had more trailer stuff to buy from them.

Beautifully. Just installed in a friend’s truck. He’s loving it as much as I did.

Factory fit. Bailey is terrific !!!


The replacement cable and nylon pin worked great and was fast shipping


Did not know which kit I needed except by comparison on your Webb It was identical to original Thanks for the speedy service


Part was exactly what I needed. Ordering was easy and checkout was easy from website. Only thing that hindered it was I paid extra for Priority Mail delivery. Delivery date was scheduled for April 12 and it came April 16. No fault of etrailer, but will consider shipping on next order. Overall great exchange with


This particular nylon pin didn't fit the switch I had on my PJ trailer. The OEM breakaway is part of a Defender system braking system. Somehow the top part of that plastic pin where the breakaway cable attaches had broken off and all I needed was a replacement pin and cable. But as my photo depicts, all pins aren't made the same.


Product was delivered two days early. Matched description as noted. Be sure the key matches the controller you are ordering for.

Still going strong after one year. Trailer came loose and pin popped and initiated brakes as intended

I contacted tech support (Kyle) at to ensure I was ordering the correct replacement break away cable assy for my horse trailer. Tech rep Kyle asked some clarifying questions and told me which part I needed. The break away cable was priced competitively, works perfectly and arrived on schedule. My trailer is now safe again. Thanks for the great help!


This product was inexpensive and arrived in a short amount of time. I was informed from my 4-star trailer manufacture this breakaway cable and switch would work. However, my trailer is only 4 years old but an updated size had ocurred. I ended up having to buy a new device for the 2010 to work.


Exactly what I needed and couldn’t previously find! Super fast delivery! Now I have a breakaway pin for each of my trailers instead of having to move the only one I had from trailer to trailer. Highly recommend etrailer for all your trailer needs.


It doesn't really fit with the original Esco brand but I am going to cut the wires and install a whole new assembly. It will work with what you sent to me It seems that the Esco nylon tip has two rails. One at the top and one at the bottom. The boat and trailer I have are a 2009 model and probably doesn't fit with what is available now. Thank you very much for your help and fast shipping and delivery. Great customer service. I will definitely call for any future needs I have!


Right part for the job. Easy to order, quickly delivered, and fit our trailer brake systems perfectly.


Easy, fast CORRECT delivery. Thank You


The emergency brake has not been needed over the last year. The pin has securely remained in place.

The emergency brake still has not been needed. The pin has securely remained in place.

I ordered two of the Tekonsha brake release cables. They were shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. I would be happy to deal with etrailer again.


Perfect fit. Only had to look one place for it. is my trailer parts source.


this replacement part fits perfectly in the switch that came with the trailer

Jim I need some help. How do you replace just the cable with nylon pin? I noticed that you commented that this replacement part fits perfect. Do you pull out the cable and nylon pin and just push in the new replacement? thank you ahead of time.vrJose
-- comment by: Jose - 04/28/2014

I just removed the old pin that had fallen out of the switch and put the new pin into the existing switch that came with the trailer
-- comment by: Jim B - 05/15/2014


Even though the order was not in stock for a month they stayed on top of it and got to me when they can good job


.This is a old one was sticking inside the switch and the O-ring was missing.didn't use the cable since I have one from roadmaster that I use on it.


I was afraid I was going to need to buy a new emergency braking pin and cable. thanks to etrailer, that won't be necessary. kudos!


I am pleased either the trailer hitch I purchased from you. It is working well with no problems.


This is exactly the electric brake cable and pin I needed for my horse trailer. Great price and received super quickly.


Great company to deal with. Part was correct, good updates on order process for time ordered to time arrived here. Used them in past and have had no complaints. Thanks etrailer

by: is fast and they have the right stuff to keep my construction trailer on the road and making me money. I can't Thank You enough.


I've always liked etrailer products and their prices are the best around.

  • Replacement Breakaway Pin and Cable
    Thanks for the photo! Based on that I can tell you that you were right on - the Replacement Cable and Nylon Pin Assembly # 2010-A will work for you as this is the same pin style as yours. I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Replacement Cable and Nylon Pin Assembly for an ECSO Breakaway Switch
    Although we do not have that specific brand of breakaway switch, the lanyard pin that you are talking about is basically universal on every breakaway switch. You should be able to use the Tekonsha Replacement Cable and Nylon Pin Assembly # 2010-A with your ESCO breakaway switch. I have attached a review video and a picture for you to verify the design with what you are needing.

  • Does Pin of Breakaway Switch Need Replacing After Bleeding Brakes or Testing Breakaway Sysstem
    As long as there's no visible damage to the pin for the breakaway switch, you can certainly reuse it. If you need to replace it the pin/lanyard, we offer them as part # 2010-A.

  • Replacement Cable and Nylon Pin for a Prodigy P2 Brake Controller
    The replacement cable and nylon pin assembly # 2010-A you referenced is certainly a possible replacement. What you need to do is double-check to make sure the slot on your breakaway switch on your trailer matches the design of the replacement pin. The brands does not have to match, but the pin will fit the breakaway switch like a key. There are not very many different designs and I have included a link showing you all 4 replacement breakaway cables we currently offer.

  • Replacement Cable and Pin for Tekonsha Trailer Breakaway Kit 20020
    We do have the correct replacement cable and pin for your Tekonsha Trailer Breakaway Kit # 20020, though it is different than the Bargman you referenced. Instead, the replacement that will work for you is the Replacement Cable and Nylon Pin Assembly # 2010-A.

  • Replacement Breakaway Switch and Extra Pin for Trailer Brakes
    We don't have the Esco brand, so I recommend simply replacing the entire pin and housing since these are standard wire circuits. I recommend the Replacement Tekonsha Trailer Breakaway Switch # 420000 and the Replacement Cable and Nylon Pin Assembly # 2010-A.

  • Replacement Breakaway Switch, Cable and Pin For Tap By Hoppy Switch
    I'm going to have to recommend replacing the entire breakaway switch as I cannot locate any replacement parts for your Tap by Hoppy switch. I recommend the Tekonsha Trailer Breakaway Switch # 420000 for a replacement. The wiring is long enough to run to the factory connectors so you do not have to worry about splicing wires where they are going to be exposed to the elements. It also connects with a single screw and uses a 49" long Cable and Pin # 2010-A which is replaceable.

  • Easy Solution for Lost Breakaway Pin and Cable on Trailer Setup
    The breakaway cables aren't pin box specific. You would need to determine what brand breakaway kit you have to determine what cable would be an exact replacement. Or an easier solution is to just replace the switch and cable with the part # N65113. The cables and pins are specific to the switch they fit, but the switches themselves are universal and all function the same. You basically would just wire the # N65113 in place of your old one and it would work well.

  • Choosing The Right Replacement Breakaway Pin For A 2013 Forest River R-Pod
    I contacted my representative at Forest River and they informed me that your 2013 R-Pod trailer came equipped with a Cequent breakaway kit. Therefore, our Tekonsha breakaway pin should be compatible with your trailer. I recommend using the Replacement Cable and Nylon Pin Assembly part # 2010-A. Featuring a 49" long cord and nylon pin, this item should work with your factory breakaway kit. In order to ensure an exact fit, I would look at the design of the old pin if available and compare...

  • Easy Solution for Needing Replacement Breakaway Pin for Unknown Breakaway System
    I have a much easier solution for you but it's really hard to pick out an exact replacement plunger for a breakaway setup unless you happen to know the exact brand of the breakaway system. But since the entire switch assemblies are completely universal you can just replace the switch and plunger like with # 2005-P and you'll be good to go.

  • Replacement Breakaway Pin for Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System
    The replacement breakaway pin for the invisBrake # RM-8700 is actually # RM-200200-20, so this is the one you need. I do not recommend using a different pin, like # 2010-A (replacement cable and pin for Tekonsha #2010 Breakaway Switch) because of subtle differences amongst pins.

  • Replacement Breakaway Pin Recommendation for Bargman Breakaway Kit
    Since you have a Bargman breakaway kit the correct replacement pin and cable would be the part # 54-85-002 which would fit and work well. While the pins between the Bargman and the Wesbar are pretty similar they are different enough to make a difference.

  • Replacement Breakaway Switch and Pin for Tekonsha Breakaway 1026

  • Breakaway Switch Pin is Stuck in the Switch
    I think you mean breakaway system. A brake controller would be in the cab of the vehicle and not on the trailer. You might need a new switch if you can't get the pin out. It would not be a bad idea to replace it anyway. They are not expensive and you will have the peace of mind of having a new switch. A switch, such as # HM20010, # 2005-P, or # HM20060, basically just completes a circuit once the pin is pulled allowing power to go from the breakaway battery to the trailer brakes. So...

  • Replacement Brake Away Cable For Frayed Trailer Breakaway Cable
    You can trim your current Breakaway Cable # 2010-A and fasten a new loop as long as you ensure it is long enough to not activate the brakes when you are turning your trailer. You will need to ensure that the repair is strong enough and that the remaining portion of the cable is still in good condition. I recommend replacing the cable with either the Fastway Zip Coiled Trailer Breakaway Cable # FA80-01-2140 or replacing the entire switch with the Fastway Zip Trailer Breakaway Switch with...

  • 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.

  • Coiled Cable and Pin for Tekonsha 2010 Breakaway Switch
    The correct part for your Tekonsha 2010 Breakaway Switch is the Replacement Cable and Nylon Pin Assembly for 2010 Breakaway Switch # 2010-A. Though this pin and the Fastway # FA80-01-2204 are similar, the Fastway pin has ridges on top, so it is not a direct replacement. I've added a link to a video review of the Tekonsha for you to take a look at.
