Video Transcript for Roadmaster Straight Safety Cables Installation

Today we're going to be installing the Roadmaster 64" Single Hook Straight Safety Cables, part number RM-645. In conjunction with the safety cables, this vehicle also has the Roadmaster Easy Floor Baseplate Kit installed, part number 523173-4, as well as the Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar, part number RM-522. We've already got everything else hooked up on our tow bar set up. All that's left to do is tie in our safety cables. We'll go ahead and take the end that has just the loop on it and we'll feed it through the slot here on the side of our falcon tow bar. Go ahead and take the end of our safety cable and we'll feed it through. We'll pull it out down on this end.

We'll go ahead and take one of the quick links that comes with the safety cables. Go ahead and feed it through the opening right here on the tow bar. We'll then attach the short safety cable that comes off the baseplate to the tow bar. Then we'll add in our new 64" safety cable. We'll then close the D-ring or the quick link up.

We'll then take our adjustable wrench here and we'll tighten it down. Then go ahead and repeat the same process over on the other side. Now all that's left to do is hook our ends with the hooks on them to the safety cable ring here on our hitch. You want to make sure that when you do that that you cross the safety cables, so you'll take the one from the passenger side and hook it over here on the driver side, like that. Then we'll repeat the same process for the other one. That will do it for our installation of the Roadmaster 64" Single Hook Safety Cables, part number RM-645.

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! 693219

Ask the Experts about this Roadmaster Safety Chains and Cables

  • 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.

  • Can the Roadmaster # RM-645 Safety Cables Be Installed with the Hooks on the Base Plate Side
    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.

  • Straight or Coiled Cables for Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar?
    Because this tow bar has a built-in cable guide, I would go with the straight cables, part RM-645. The coiled cables might be a little hard to thread through the cable guide.

  • 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.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited
    For your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-521450-5. This base plate kit is confirmed to fit your Jeep with the factory bumper and will work perfectly with your existing Falcon 2 Tow Bar. When installing the base plates, you will likely need to trim some fascia to allow enough room for the receivers (see attached pictures). I have attached the complete installation instructions that you can also look through. In order to flat tow your Jeep...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Ford Fiesta SE Behind an RV
    I will be happy to recommend the parts you will need to flat tow your 2016 Ford Fiesta behind your RV. The first item needed will be base plates. The base plates are what will mount to the Fiesta. They provide a safe attachment point for the tow bar. For these I recommend # RM-524438-4. The tow bar is what connects the RV to the Fiesta. There are a lot of options but not to worry because I will recommend one that will work best with your Fiesta. Non-binding tow bars are the way to go...

    As long as you have all the components needed for flat towing, and they are all properly rated for the 2018 Ford F-150, you will not have any issues pulling this vehicle behind your Tiffin RV. There is no need to go to a lighter vehicle if a Ford F-150 is what you truly are wanting. In order to flat tow any vehicle, you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system.

I am not sure what exactly it does or why using this harness solves those issues but that is its purpose. It has something to do with the steering wheel lock.

    The battery does have to be disconnected to flat tow your 2017 Ford Edge with push-button start. The automatic battery disconnect, # RM-766, is recommended to do this automatically so you won't have to spend time doing it manually. This disconnect has been used on the positive terminal with other vehicles and I see no reason why you couldn't do the same on your Edge. If you need all of the other parts to flat tow your Edge then I recommend the following parts: Base plates: # RM-524454-5...

    To flat tow your 2018 Mini Cooper Convertible S model you will first need base plates # RM-521882-4. Next you will need a compatible tow bar. I strongly recommend a non-binding tow bar because with it you will not have to have the vehicle and motorhome perfectly straight and level to hook up or disconnect. If you ever had to fight with a tow bar because it bound up then you know how much of a pain, literally and figuratively, it can be. That is why I recommend the Falcon All-Terrain tow...

To flat tow a 2018 Chevrolet Sonic, you will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, wiring, a braking system, and maybe a high-low hitch adapter. For base plates, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms, Item # RM-523192-4 for the sedan with 1.8L engine or Item # RM-523194-4 for the hatchback with 1.8L engine.

EZ5 base plates # RM-521423-5 fit the 2002 to 2007 Jeep Liberty. EZ base plates # 521433-1 fit the 2008 to 2012 Jeep Liberty. Since you have a 2007 Liberty you would need to use either the EZ5 base plates # RM-521423-5 or the EZ4 base plates # RM-521423-4. The difference between these is the design of the removable arms....

You will also need safety cables like # RM-645. Then for your wiring, I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267.

    Since the guides on the Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar # RM-522 are enclosed, I would go with straight cables.

These are 64-inch long straight cables and will work well with the Falcon tow bar.

This was not a very popular option but if you call your dealer they will be able to tell you whether or not you have this.
