Video Transcript for Roadmaster Safety Chains and Cables - Safety Cables - RM-643 Review

Today we're going to b reviewing part number RM-643. These are the RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables. They're going to have a capacity of 6,000 lbs. They're going to offer extra security for you tow system. The cable is made from a aircraft-type, galvanized steel construction that's going to offer a superior strength. It's also going to feature the heavy-duty, drop-forged steel hooks that have a spring-loaded latche for added security. That's just going to help people to average what's inside the hook, inside the hook and keep it from becoming disengaged.

The cables have a nice vinyl coating that's going to keep the cables from scratching and chipping your tow bar system. Another neat feature is here on the eyelet of the cable, it has a nice solid steel piece. That way it allows the hook and the other connection for and through rotate freely around there. Without freeing or unthreading the actual cables. That's a great feature to have. You're going to get 2 safety cables. They are coiled, but they're going to have an overall length of 68" and a capacity of 6,000 lbs.

Now, here on this connection point, I have one of them unthreaded. Really easy, all you have to do is thread it back up. It's going to secure and place. If I have one of them opened as if we're getting ready for connection. I have one of them as if we're already connected.

The opening that this one gives us is going to be a half inch to slip over the connection point. Here on the inside of that hook, that opening is going to give us 2 5/8". Then this direction, it's going to give us a measurement of 5/8". That's going to do it for the review of part number RM-643. These are the RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables. .

I have never been involved with this type of application prior in my life until now. I received the shipment as scheduled. Everything I ordered came to me within a two days of each other. The packing of the equipment was well conducted. The instructions were well received and clearly understood. The modification instruction for my vehicle, for this install was appreciated due to I did not want anymore alterations than necessary. The equipment easily went together as planned which was greatly appreciate due to the fact I was installing this in -20 degree weather. After the install it I hooked up my truck to a Uhaul truck and pulled it over 1200 miles from Wisconsin to Texas and found the reliability to be as stated by the manufacturer. I would never hesitate to use it again or purchase similar products from etrailer. 721057

I wont replace them anytime soon, but I wont get the same thing again. Having to pull against the coils in the to hook up the cables negates the fact that the tension keeps them off of the ground. It is at least as easy to put a few twists in a traditional chain and get the same results without the tug of war and extra expense. Beside that, my tow bar has channels on each arm that I could run a none coiled cable through if I wanted to go that route. With just a little more than 1,000 miles on them, there is already abrasion on the plastic coating. As I write this, I am thinking maybe I will return them - better check into the policy. 711944

What can I say...but WOW. We have been towing our 2014 Kia Soul for the past year with absolutely no issues with our towing system. I highly recommend to those who are looking for an affordable towing system to buy the Roadmaster Falcon 2. I'm looking forward to many more miles of use, 707030

Roadmaster was real slow with the delivery of the seat adapter. But Michael kept me informed all the way through to the delivery. etrailer is 5 stars all the way from start to finish. I look forward to using them in my orders to follow. Now for ROADMASTER products RM-643 safety cables quality is good work fine Delivery was fast RM-9160 brake master system Love this system instructions were easy to follow RM-15267 toad tail light/brake wiring good instructions for install RM-1550-1 base plate good instructions for install except you need to drill two 1/2'' holes you must measure and mark as there is no pilot hole. The whole system works great with the 2008 Honda Pilot RM-88189 seat adapter I have yet to install as I had to make up my own for the trip. I will say the seat adapter bracket is made just for the Honda and Acura, they had to make custom make. Thanks to all the car towed great for my first trip of 1,100 miles 692904

Base plates went on after going through several drill bits. The examples for installing safety cables did not apply to my vehicle but they are on the bottom of the frame. Installing the tail light bulbs was difficult without a one inch hole saw (couldn't find one). Had to trim fascia to install wire receiver. Overall ok. 691738

Do you have a question about this Safety Chains and Cable?


  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2019 Jeep Wrangler
  • The first thing you need is a base plate kit that is designed for your 2019 Jeep Wrangler. For that you'd want the Roadmaster EZ5 part # RM-521450-5. Next you'll want a tow bar to connect the base plate to your motorhome. The Roadmaster Falcon 2 part # RM-520 would be your best option. It's the easiest to use and our most popular option. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267,...

  • In order to flat-tow a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk you are going to need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety chains, flat-tow wiring, a supplemental braking system, and a possible high-low adapter. I have attached my recommendation on the following parts for you below. Base Plate Kit: Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit part # RM-521451-4 - This kit has removable arms for a clean look while unhooked from the RV.

If you have Adaptive Cruise Control you will need the Blue Ox # BX1721 Base Plate Kit, and if you do NOT have Adaptive Cruise Control I recommend the Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit # RM-523182-5. For a tow bar I recommend going with the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 because of how easy the tow bar is to connect to the base plates as well as its long...

  • Blue Ox Baseplate Kit to Flat Tow a 2020 Jeep Gladiator
  • Blue Ox does have a base plate kit that fits your 2020 Jeep Gladiator, it's part # BX1142. It fits regardless of which model Gladiator you have. It sounds like you probably already have a tow bar. If you don't have safety cables use # RM-643 for a set that's coiled. This way they don't drag on the ground. You also need wiring and a braking system to flat tow the Jeep. I recommend the diode kit # RM-15267 and Stay-IN-Play DUO # SM99251. Both get installed onto the Gladiator so you...

  • Difference Between Roadmaster EZ4 and EZ5 Base Plates for 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Both the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit # RM-521448-4 and EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-521448-5 will fit on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The primary difference between the two designs is the way they attach to the tow bar. The EZ5 does not use the quick-connect crossbar which provides a cleaner look, but prevents you from using some accessories that mount to the crossbar such as a Rock Guard like the Roadmaster # RM-4000. If you are at all interested in using a rock guard or protective...

Unfortunately, that part must be sourced at a dealership as well. We do however, have everything else you may need to flat tow the Jeep. The custom base plate kit you need is either part # RM-521447-5, if your Jeep is not a Trailhawk or part # RM-521446-5 if it is. These will connect directly to the Falcon 2 tow bar, part # RM-520.

These will also fit both 7/8 and 1 inch diameter holes. This will fit your D-rings. For this application, I recommend the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs # RM-520 and safety cables # RM-643.

The main reason that some people choose to not use a portable towing system like the 9700 is because they do not want to store it or have to install it every time they get ready to flat tow. For people that have this viewpoint (and if you would rather not have to do that) we recommend a permanent install...

For a tow bar I recommend going with the Roadmaster Falcon 2 # RM-520. This tow bar has a weight rating of 6,000 lbs and features arms that adjust individually for easy hook up and disconnect. Safety Cables that go great with this tow bar and are also rated for 6,000 lbs are the Roadmaster part # RM-643 which...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Jeep Wrangler with D-Rings on Smittybilt Front Bumper
  • The front bumper on your 2005 Jeep Wrangler does resemble the Smittybilt XRC. If that is what you have then you actually won't need a base plate kit as you can use D-Ring adapters to flat tow your Wrangler. We have verified this with Smittybilt in the past. What you will need is either the Roadmaster 1" D-Ring Bumper Mounts # RM-035-1 or the 3/4" D-Ring Bumper Mounts # RM-035 and then a compatible tow bar like the Falcon 2 # RM-520. If you don't already have safety cables then I recommend...

  • Can 2018 Kia Soul Manual Transmission be Flat Towed
  • Yes, it looks like the manual transmission versions of the 2018 Kia Soul are flat towable. You'd need a base plate kit part # RM-522115-4 which is a confirmed fit. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting...

  • Recommendation For Safety Cables To Flat Tow 2005 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Curt Tow Bar, Item # C19745, is a basic but durable tow bar that should serve you well. For safety cables, I recommend the Roadmaster Coiled Safety Cables, Item # RM-643, because they are 68 inches long so plenty of length, are heavy-duty, and have a vinyl coating that keeps the cables from scratching and chipping your tow bar or anything else. Besides a tow bar and safety cables, you will need tow bar wiring and a supplemental braking system for flat towing your 2005 Jeep Wrangler....
