Video Transcript for Redline Hitch Pins and Clips - Lanyard - 2608 Review

Today, we're going to be reviewing product number 2608. This is Redline's 8 inch long lanyard. This is made of a multi-strand aircraft cable. The lanyard is going to be stronger and more resistant to breaking when compared to single wire lanyards. This lanyard is going to help keep your hitchpin, linchpin, or snapper pin close by when you're not using it. That way you don't ever have to worry about losing it or misplacing it. Here on each end, it's going to feature a closed loop end as well as a nice crimped design.

It's going to make sure that the cable stays securely in place. That way the loop does not come undone. Now, the loop end openings, that's going to measure about a half inch going this way and a quarter of an inch wide. Overall length, measuring from end to end, is going to be where we get the 8 inch measurement from. That's going do it for product number 2608. This is Redline's 8 inch long lanyard.

Factory utility trailer tail gate latch lacked quality control. Could not pull gate pin far enough to release the gate. Removed the spring and added a hitch pin to keep the latch from dropping the gate bouncing down the road. Lost a few pins, found some in the wash machine, got these cables and the pins stay at the trailer where their supposed to be. Took 10 seconds to attach, not theft proof but they work!


My business dealings with E-Trailer has always been a good result whether I need parts or advice they have always been very helpful!


E - trailer is fantastic!! Always great quality parts! They are always available for that question that you might have. The longest I’ve waited for a reply on an email is one hour. And that was during the holidays. The only problem is that they use the United States Postal Service for delivery on some items. The United States Postal Service always delays delivery. E Trailer mailed out my item on December 19, the USPS just delivered it today January 9th. Just a heads up, a trailer ships it out on time it’s the USPS that drops the ball. As you all know that the US Postal Service is to blame for the delay delivery and not a E trailer..


As advertised, exactly what I needed, works great. Service was superb, communication perfect!


I used this with a small key ring to facilitate installation on a hitch pin, worked perfectly.


Great product. Quick shipping


Excellent lanyard for my hitch pins. Thanks.


etrailer is the best, and the products are still going strong after a year of abuse on construction sites.

I love the service and selection at etrailer

I definitely want you to receive your package. I will have our customer service team reach out to you to assist with tracking.


Always impressive customer service. Supplier was a bit late getting product and etrailer sent regular updates letting me know about the small delay and whey to expect product. Great prices. Great communication and follow up.


Excellent quality, exactly what I expected.
Very well made.
I ordered two lengths, and they fit my trailers well.

I will order from this company again.


Added these to the tow bar pin clips so I no longer lose the clips.


This item was hard to find. But worth the trouble. Exactly what I needed and I'll look forward to buying more products. Came quick too. Great price.

One year later, holding up great. Looks like new still, even though its been outdoors in the weather. Very satisfied.


Always great assistance & communication. So nice to have the free qshipping threshold of $50.


You folks always do a good job.


The product was exactly what I was looking for. The most difficult thing, however, was finding the name for "a short steel wire with closed loops at both ends".


Products came sooner than expected package was in good shape and order was right even though I ordered many items


this product did exactly what I needed it for


Excellent product and timely shipping and notification. Highly recommend ordering from these folks.


this is exactly what I ordered. It arrived quickly with no issues.

  • Diameter Of The Loop On Each End Of The Redline 8 inch Lanyard Part # 2608
    The 8" Long Lanyard # 2608 has two loops, one on each side. The loops measure 1/2 inch long 1/4 inch wide. Go to your local hardware store and grab a bolt/self tapping screw that the threaded portion falls within the dimensions of the loop. The head of the bolt/screw should be bigger than the loop just to prevent it from slipping off. You want to have the majority if not all the loop underneath the head of the hardware you use.

  • Recommended Flat Towing Base Plates for 2004 Ford F250 and 2005 Scion xB
    The Blue Ox Alexus tow bar has been discontinued for several years, but it would still be compatible with their currently available tow bar base plate kits. The tow bar has a 10,000 lb capacity, so it would work fine with either vehicle. To flat tow either vehicle, you will need a tow bar, base plates, safety cables, a lighting solution so the lights on the two vehicle operate along with those of the tow vehicle and a supplementary braking system. Also, please keep in mind that some vehicles...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2004 Ford F-250
    A tow bar we have that has enough capacity for your 8,500 lb truck is the Demco Excali-Bar part # DM9511013-BX. Then for a base plate kit the Blue Ox # BX2608 is confirmed as a fit for your truck and would work great. This was designed with the weight of your truck in mind so it would be rated for the weight as well. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your...
