Video Transcript for Blue Ox Tow Bars BX88207 Review

Today we're going to review part number BX88207. These are the Blue Ox permanent base plate safety cables, with a 5,000 pound weight capacity, and for a quantity of two. Now, this part comes with everything shown here. It comes with the two cables, the four quick link connectors, and a nice set of detailed instructions. Now, these permanent base plate safety cables are strongly recommended when towing a vehicle with a tow bar. The main function of these safety cables is to prevent the towed vehicle from breaking loose in the event the connection between the frame of the towed vehicle and the base plate fails, or becomes disconnected.

These safety cables offer extra security for your tow system. They use aircraft grade steel cable, which is very strong and durable. The whole cable is plastic coated here, to help prevent scratches to your tow bar. These are made in the USA. Again, it includes the two cables, the four quick links. The length on these cables is 36 inches long.

Capacity, again, is 5,000 pounds. Basically, when you go to install these, what you'll do is take your quick link connectors and you'll put one of these on each end of the loop. Then, you'll go ahead and tighten it down. What you want to do is, you're going to wrap one end of the cable around the base plate on the towed vehicle, and the other end of the cable you'll wrap either around the cross member or the frame of the towed vehicle. Again, that'll give you security, just in case the base plate comes detached from your towed vehicle. That should do it for the review on part number BX88207, the Blue Ox permanent base plate safety cables, 5,000 pound weight capacity, and for a quantity of two..

Great Safety cables. Very good quality and etrailer always has good prices and their service, support and follow-up is second to none in my opinion. I'm still using the cables after a year and they look good as new. Thank you etrailer.

Ask the Experts about this Blue Ox Safety Cables

  • Recommended 4 Pole Harness Mounting Bracket for Blue Ox Baseplate
    I can help you get a mounting bracket on your Blue Ox baseplate for your 4 pole wiring harness. If your baseplate came with the bracket mounting prongs, then you will want to get # RM-A003801. If your baseplate did not come with this bracket then I recommend the Tow Ready # 18144 with the # 18140. You may need longer extension plate like # C57202 to allow the harness to stick far enough from the base plate. The brackets will attach with an included hose clamp. I've linked a video...

If you actually need the cables that attach to the base plates around the frame of your vehicle that normally come with your Blue Ox base plates you'll want to use the Blue Ox Permanent Base Plate Safety...

    Yes, you can use the Tow Ready Adjustable Tow Bar, item # 63180, to tow your 2007 PT Cruiser Turbo convertible. Keep in mind that this tow bar is rated for towing speeds of 45 miles per hour or less. A better tow bar option would be the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar, # BX7322 , which is designed for towing long distances and more frequently.
