Nice quality. Easy to install. Flexible



by:

This product worked great. Didn't have a place to connect the safety cables. Wrapped these around the frame at the bumper.



by:

Exactly what I was looking for. It was difficult to find shorter cables rated for my trailer but etrailer had them. Shipping got delayed in route by the carrier and etrailer was quick to notify me. Couldn't ask for better service on this order.



by:

This is very well made and the coating covering the cable is very tough. The connectors are much bigger than you may realize but are also very well made and work smoothly. I dont think you will be dissapointed.

See what our Experts say about this Blue Ox Safety Cables

  • Recommended Safety Chains For A 7,000 Pound Tandem Axle Trailer
    The rating listed for a single chain, like the Curt # C80031 at 5,000 pounds of capacity, will double when two are used. So the # C80031 used as a pair will mean you would have 10,000 pounds of capacity. With that said, I am not a huge fan of the S-Hook design as it can be a pain to get the rubber retainer band piece over the hooks when it's cold out and they can break as well. If you are wanting something that has good capacity and has clevis hooks, which I prefer, check out the Reese...

  • Quick Link Needed for 7,600 lb Safety Chains
    The Blue Ox 1/2" Quick Link # BX229-0512 that you referenced is perfect for use with the 7,500 lb Blue Ox safety chains # BX88197 or # BX88208. This quick link has a 10,000 lb weight capacity so it will not limited the capacity of your safety chains. If you are needing a quick connect for a different application then I recommend the Safety Chain Quick Link # C82932 which is rated for 16,500 lbs and has a 3,300 lb safe working load limit. Both parts come in a quantity of 1 so you need...

  • How To Attach Safety Cables/Chains When Using The Curt Tow Bar # C19745
    Safety chains/cables shouldn't actually be attached to the tow bar # C19745 at all. The point is to have an alternative point of security in the event that any connection point of the tow bar fails and you have a loose vehicle on the road. The Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms # C19745 is a very old-school design that was originally used with metal bumpers and people would just wrap the chains around the bumper and loop it up to the tow vehicle. I recommend finding a point on the...

  • Dimensions And Capacities Of Blue Ox 3 Foot Safety Cables # BX88208
    On the Blue Ox 3 Foot Safety Cables - 10,000 lbs - Qty 2 # BX88208, I reached out to my contact at the manufacturer and the 10,000 lb rating is for each cable. This is not rated on what they are able to tow. They don't have a rating for working load because these cables are only intended for use in the emergency situation. They couldn't give me a break strength rating. I went out to our warehouse and measured the Quick Links for you. They are 1/2 inch in diameter and have an opening...

  • Where Do 3' Baseplate Safety Cables/Quick Links Get Installed
    Cables like the Blue Ox 3' Permanent Base Plate Safety Cables # BX88208 can be used in two ways. If they came with a Blue Ox baseplate then you're supposed to wrap them around the frame and connect them to the baseplate as an added safety precaution in the event that the baseplate became detached from the frame of the vehicle. There would be a section in the installation instructions for the baseplate that goes over how to install them in this way. The other possibility is that with some...

  • Where to Install Safety Cables on Jeep Off Road Bumper When Using D-Ring Adapters
    When using D-ring adapters to flat tow your Jeep like what it sounds like you're doing, safety cables will generally just need to be attached to the vehicle's frame.

I recommend using the Blue Ox Safety Cables # BX88208, as it includes two 3 foot long cables and 4 quick links. They feature a 10,000 pound...

    I would be happy to help! Since you will be installing the Blue Ox Aftermarket Off-Road Bumper Adapter for 7/8" pins # BX88357 on your 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited I recommend going with the Blue Ox Alpha 2 Non-Binding Tow Bar # BX7380.
