Used these with the Raodmaster Blackhawk 2 Tow bar and the Direct connect base kit with removable arms. They were easy to run thru the channels on the tow bar and did not hang down excessively. Very easy to connect with the hooks on one end and the O rings on the other. Would recommend!


Comments
The cables are well made and very easy to take on and off. they fit well into the tow bar with ample play to them. Great purchase!

This cable was made with not only safety features of it’s engineering, but also ease-of-use. They’re pliable enough to maneuver yet rigid enough to keep their shape. The crimp sleeve at the eye was done well eliminating possible jabs from a wire and the hooks are easy to open and close the safety latch.

Heavy Duty and just as expected, I have not used them yet as my motorhome has not been delivered. My etrailer representative Joshua was VERY helpful.

The products purchased were to allow me to tow my new Jeep Grand Cherokee behind my motorhome. Actually I had purchased a similar setup from you Five years earlier for my 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. Both worked as advertised and I was very satisfied.

This was part of many Roadmaster components I ordered from etrailer.com to set up my 2014 Honda CRV as a toad. Etrailer's website is excellent and their review videos and installation videos are very helpful. Their tech service department is excellent as well. These safety cables are well made and fit well in the channels of the Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain tow bar. Note the etrailer video shows having to order extra rings to mount to the motorhome side. This is not necessary if you have a new Roadmaster baseplate with wide hole safety cabel attachment points. The looped ends and rings provided on the safety cab els should mount to the motorhome (and stay with the tow bar when disconnected and folded). The other end with the spring hinged hooks easily hook onto the baseplate with wide holes for the hooks.

I have ordered several variations of RoadMaster towing accessories from etrailer over the years. etrailer is always helpful when I have a question, if they don't know the answer, they will send you where you can find the correct parts for your needs. That was the case with this order, my previous hook-up used the EZ hook safety cables. I bought a new Jeep to tow and the new base plate does not accept the EZ Hook Cables. After a conversation with etrailer customer service, they had me call RoadMaster for the solution RM-645 must be used. Ordered from etrailer and in just a few days the cables came in the mail. (I thought etrailer should have given free shipping, after all the products I have bought for over$100.00, but I guess not...) even with economy shipping, the cables arrived in short order. I am one of many satisfied etrailer customers, I'm sure. ron

I purchased RoadMaster Safety Cables for my 1993 Jeep Wrangler that was equipped with a StowMaster tow bar. Instructions were provided for several manufactures of tow bars including my StowMaster. Assembly was simple and took approximately 15 minutes and provided for a perfect fit.

The cables and attachments worked out very well to replace the original cables when we got a new tow car and base plate. The original set would not connect to the new base plate. These are constructed the same as the originals that were still in good shape after 13 years of use.

I tow my Saturn for work delivering trucks. I use these cables almost on a daily basis and have been very satisfied. The vinyl coating has held up extremely well. The only issue that I have encountered is that the spring safety clip tends to bend after a while.

I ordered both the Front and Rear anti-sway bar upgrade kits. The install on my 2016 E450 was quite simple, and accomplished easily in my driveway. The kit for the front was a simple remove and replace the OEM bar. The rear kit required drilling two holes to accomodate new mounting points. Other than that, it was also simply a matter of removing a few bolts, and replacing the factory bar. Some minor nits associated with the kits. The washers included in the kit for the rear didn't fit the bolts, also included in the kit. And, the instructions for the front kit didn't include torque specs for the bolts. A quick trip to the local hardware store, and a call to Roadmaster tech support solved the respective problems. Oddly, the Roadmaster tech guy read me THEIR instruction over the phone, and they DID include the necessary specs. I've intalled these kits on two different motor homes now. They work GREAT, and I highly recommend them if you're towing and it feels like the vehicle has a bit more roll than you like. HOWEVER, I would note that the difficulty of installation can vary widely. If you're planning to install yourself, I highly recommend downloading the instructions in advance, and crawling under your vehicle to check on accessibility. For the E450 kit, you'll have to be able to get under there with a drill, and not drill through any cables/lines that may run along the frame rails. You'll also have to be able to get a (typically somewhat large) torque wrench up in there. My experience suggests this can be nearly impossible on some vehicles without access to a grease pit or lift. Good luck!

Ask the Experts about this Roadmaster Safety Cables

  • Recommended Safety Cable That Is At Least 64 Inches Long
    The safety cables I highly recommend are from Roadmaster, the Single Hook, Straight Safety Cables. These cables are galvanized steel with a strong vinyl coating for protection and hooks that are forged steel for optimal strength. You can get them in either 64 inch or 76 inch lengths: - 64 Inches (Single Hook): Roadmaster 64" Single Hook, Straight Safety Cables - 8,000 lbs # RM-645 - 64 Inches (Double Hook): RoadMaster 64" Double Hook, Straight Safety Cables - 10,000 lbs # RM-648 -...

  • Where are Roadmaster 64 Inch Safety Cables Measured From?
    The Roadmaster 64" Single Hook, Straight Safety Cables # RM-645 is the overall length of the unit. If you are at all concerned with the amount of length I highly recommend going to a longer cable such as the 76" # RM-645-76 or the 80" Double Hook # RM-674.

    If you have the room on your base plates connection to securely attach the hook, then there will be no issue with using the Roadmaster # RM-645 Safety Hooks. I found another option for you. The Roadmaster 64 Inch Double Hook Safety Cables, # RM-646, is the better option for you. Theses cables have the same features as the # RM-645 cables that you referenced, but this set includes hooks with spring loaded latches on both ends of the safety cable.

  • Recommended Safety Cable Extensions When Rise or Drop is Required for Level Flat Towing
    If you need to add just a little more length to safety cables like # RM-645 due to a high-low adapter, I recommend using the safety cable extensions. Based on your current cable capacity, we have the 10 inch # RM-650648-10 extensions. For a 4 inch drop these extensions will allow a little slack to meet your needs.

  • Straight or Coiled Cables for Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar?
