Video Transcript for Curt Safety Chains and Cables - Safety Cables - C80136 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt Single Hook Coiled Safety Cables with S-hooks. Safety cables are going to help ensure safe towing. They simply provide back up protection between the tow vehicle and your trailer. Now these cables are going to feature an S-hook located at one end. On the other end it's going to have the formed loop. On the S-hook side we're going to have the wire keepers.

These are going to help prevent the S-hooks from accidentally unhooking from the safety chain loops. Then you'll notice that each cable is a really nice, coiled design. What this does is it simply eliminates slack. It's going to keep your cables from dragging on the ground. Underneath this coating is a braided steel construction that's very strong and durable.

Then that nylon coating prevents your cables from scratching anything on your towing setup. The S-hooks are made from a steel construction. They feature a zinc coating. It's going to do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion. They're going to have a weight capacity of 3,500 pounds. The overall length, if you we're to stretch this all the way out, including the hooks, is going to be about 42".

Just the cable itself is going to be around 40". We did do some precise measurements. The opening on the loop end, measuring the width right there is 0.68" wide. Outer edge to outer edge is 1.188" wide. The opening on the hook itself, right here at the opening, that gives us a gap of 11/16", and then it narrows to around 5/8" wide.

With this part number you're going to get two safety cables. That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt Single Hook Coiled Safety Cables with the S-hooks.

Strong cables that stay coiled and out of the way until needed. What you see in the picture is how they look on the trailer .Best for smaller trailers.



- C80136
by:

Sturdy cables that coil around bars/arms to stay out of the way. Works great.



- C80136
by:

Performs as expected. I'm using the safety cables on a lightweight two motorcycle trailer.



- C80136
by:

Much better than chains, especially if you tow with a low vehicle where the chains could drag. The cables always stay slightly coiled to keep them taut.



- C80136
by:

Great hooks. Better then chains



- C80136
by:

These are a lot better and easier to use / store than chains.



- C80136
by:

Great replacement for old chains! Coiled design keeps them from dragging. And the slimmer cable reduces bulk around the front tongue. Quick and easy switch-out!



- C80136
by:

I'm very disappointed in these cables. I've used them in the past and they worked great, however they're changed them. Now the manufacturer has installed a spring clip on the hooks to keep them from falling off of the tow vehicle. The problem is that they didn't increase the size of the hooks and the 'safety' clip actually pushes the hook off of the tow vehicle's hitch. My vehicle has a pretty standard design of frame hitch, nothing odd or anything like that. The manufacturer just didn't bother to try these things out before going into production. I've got the other ends of the cables welded to my trailer, meaning that I'll have to cut them off and weld on something else, then patch the paint on the trailer, etc. What a nuisance! I would NOT RECOMMEND buying these cables, or at least test them on your particular hitch before permanently installing them.



- C80136
by:

A huge upgrade over chains, these are an awesome budget friendly upgrade. They don't drag the ground and you can fish your wiring through them so that doesn't drag the ground either.



- C80136
by:

Added an extension hitch to our F350 to be able to launch our boat in some of the shallower lakes we fish. Needed a long safety chain to be able to hook the trailer chains to the truck. These worked great. FAST shipping once again from the great people at E-trailer.

My experience with etrailer has been excellent. First, I like the website. It is easy to navigate and very informative, and descriptive. The prices are good and along with the free shipping on my order, it made it the best deal available. Shipping was fast. I've already installed the parts, they were of the quality that I had expected. My favorite part was that George remembered that I had ordered a transmission cooler about three or four years ago, making me a repeat customer. I won't hesitate to use etrailer in the future.



- C80136
by:

The cables are constructed very well and seem to be very strong. The S-hook has a spring loaded clip to help keep it on the receiver and avoid slipping off. This is exactly what I needed to replace the safety chains on my trailer.



- C80136
by:

Works great stays out of the way when c onnected.



- C80136
by:

I put these on my trailer so they would reach the vehicle when I have the extra long tongue in. Seeing as they are coiled they are still fine when hooked up to my truck with a regular hitch assembly.



- C80136
by:

Worked perfectly. Economical.



- C80136
by:

I completely rebuilt my boat trailer and used a lot of parts from e trailer Every part was of great quality. Very good prices and fast shipping. I would use them again for all my trailer needs.



- C80136

they're good but they're too long for car/small trailer



- C80136

Was tired of old chains after seeing these on all new trailers. Awesome, simple addition to my older trailer and great price and shipping from etrailer!

Ask the Experts about this CURT Safety Cables

  • How Long Should Safety Chains Be for Trailer
    Since safety chains pivot underneath the trailer when making turns it's typically not a situation where a significant length of safety chain is needed to allow sharp turns to be made. Basically you'd want to measure the distance between the safety chain loop on the trailer and the loops of the hitch and give yourself and additional bit of slack. The part # C80136 measures 42 inches and is coiled too to keep it off of the ground.

  • Safety Chains for 2011 Forest Rive Flagstaff Mac Pop-Up Camper
    Based on my research your 2011 Forest Rive Flagstaff Mac pop-up camper does have a 3,000 lb GVWR like you mentioned. For safety chains a great option will be the Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables with S-Hooks - 42" Long - 3,500 lbs # C80136. I've added a link to a video review of these chains for you to check out as well.

  • Size of S-Hooks on the Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables Part # C80136 and Part # C80176
    The Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables part # C80136 contain s-hooks that are 3/8" diameter and the Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables part # C80176 contain s-hooks that are 1/2" diameter. The 3/8" diameter s-hooks would be much too small for the safety chain loops on your 2-1/2" trailer hitch but the 1/2" ones should work well for you. They have a 7,500 lb capacity and measure 42" long. I have attached a review video for you.

  • Using Safety Cables or Chains with Titan Swing Away Actuator on Trailer
    Safety chains and cables, such as the Curt Single Hook # C80136, are generally attached to the trailer itself and not the coupler. If your trailer does not have any good mounts on which to attach the cables, you can install some like the Brophy Mounting Bracket # MB12. I have attached a short video demonstration on this part that you can also check out.
