I'm always very impressed with etrailers customer service. Every time I order a product, if it's not immediately available or there's a better option, one of the representatives personally emails me with options. Fantastic customer service!

My only suggestion on this product, or any safety chain, is make the connecting link that connects to the trailer bigger in circumference so the connection bolts will pass through. Had to go to a local hardware store to Jerry fit something that would work and accomodations the stock bolts.

@CarlR That's a great suggestion Carl. I will pass it on.


Good quality product- highly recommended for use with the Reese Goosebox 16k



Good as new, one year later. No Rust or corrosion, High Quality Safety chains. Good purchase


its a gamechanger to have this installed on my boat trailer. no longer need to step over trailer tougue in garage.


I ordered these safety chains to go with the 16k Goosebox. They fit perfect, length is good. I did modify the chains with hooks on both ends. This saves from being in the bed of my pickup during coupling or un-coupling hitch. See the pics. Turned out nice, I got lots of compliments on our first trip out with the new setup.


I ordered the safety chains to work with my 20k Reese goosebox and my B&E goose ball. The hooks fit perfect on the B&W chain supports and all the necessary hardware was included.


Great experience and love my B&W Ball and Chain Gooseneck Hitch. As smooth as a ride you can get pulling a 43' 5th wheel camper and easy to connect to the ball.


stress free towing with the Reese goose box. Towing is a breeze and you rest easy knowing that it is hitched. the air ride smooths out the ride.
Lori with trailer was excellent to work with. She made sure I had the correct pinbox and kept me informed.


Had everything I needed to install. I got an old trailer that didn't have any safety chains and this had everything I needed. Was plenty long allowing me to adjust to the length I needed.


Cheerful help at eTrailer evolved into an enjoyable, easy to use vehicle - body-less Model A Ford - hold down system. We use this on the Forest Roads of Idaho.
Great products accompanied with many ways to solve a problem.


Great quality safety chains. Highly rec ommend.


These safety chains are solid as a rock. They were purchased to go with the Reese Elite Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Accessory Kit. The clasps on the chains are extremely difficult to get to snap closed using the safety chain attachments which come with the kit. Difficult but not impossible - more annoyance than problem. Overall, I hope these chains are absolutely never required; but, if they are, I'm confident they will work perfectly.

Greg W.


all is well. The clasps on the chains have eased up a bit and are not nearly so hard to put on as they were at first. They are holding up very well!


These were installed as safety chains on a fifth wheel travel trailer. They were easily installed and appear to be very robust. They have been used multiple times with no issues and I heartily recommend them for anyone needing such a product. Fortunately they have not been needed for their intended purpose!



Excellent, high quality addition


The first order of the chains was lost by UPS. Carol at e trailer got on the case and UPS confirmed it was lost in space. Carol got another order right and received. Great job.
The chains are a great replacement for my rusted old chains.


This is one of those purchases where you have absolutely no regrets. These safety chains are exactly what I was looking for and for a great price. They are much longer than I needed which is great because you can customize them to suit your needs. I did a lot of research before making this purchase. The safety latch provides a worry free installation. I could not recommend this product more.



So, its been well over a year since I purchased my safety chains. My chains look the same as when I first put them on my trailer. They function perfectly as well. I never cut my chain. I used a quick link to tie back any extra length of chain. This way I can keep the chain whole in case I ever need it for a different truck or trailer.


Haven't actually towed with these but will be next week. So far they look and feel very solid and capable. Long enough for the gooseneck with room to spare and they feel like that trailer isn't going anywhere if there is a fubar. Hopefully these will last (rusting) as long as I hope. For the price, very happy.



These have been working great. No rust and handle everything thrown at them in all conditions.


Overkilling maybe but why not. Chains look super duty to go along with my Demco 5th wheel hitch. Thanks



Ive never used chains before on prior 5th wheels but this time I did. These are perfect, chain length great for my hooks from goose neck plate and gives me a sense of more safety and security.


Very easy to attach to trailer. Hooks are a little bit large, making them somewhat difficult to attach to my truck, but they do work as advertised. I haven't had to test them yet by having the trailer break loose, but really I don't want to.



Until Covid curtailed my RVing, the chains performed perfectly. I got a small collapsible step which made it much easier to hook up. Hopefully when all the restrictions are lifted Ill be able to go back to RVing and get more experience with them.


Strong, heavy, durable. Gives me extra confidence pulling a fifth wheel with a ball-style (Anderson) hitch. Safety chains aren't normally used when securing a kingpin fifth wheel hitch, but they're used with gooseneck hitches. I never understood why, but since my connections to the truck are by a ball-style (like a gooseneck or a bumper pull) hitch, I thought it wise to have safety chains too.


etrailer was easy to work with, super fast shipping, accurate order processing, and great products. Thanks. Looking forward to my next order. etrailer got my truck ready for our RV adventures.


Product is great! Wish it would have come included with my Reese Goosebox instead of as an extra option. I had no problems installing them. They were backordered for about three weeks, but they were worth waiting for. The staff at offered me alternative safety chains if I didn't want to wait. They were very good at keeping me informed when they would be available for shipping. Thanks!


Free shipping isn’t free! I purposefully ordered $[XX] in items to qualify for the free shipping offer. Unbeknownst to me, my order languished in a holding pattern until I called to follow up on it being shipped. My two options were to wait to see if it made it on time before we left on a 5 week RV trip or, now, pay the $[XX] to expedite the shipment. Being that the main order was safety chains for our 5th wheel, I did not want to leave our home base without them and did think that a nearly 3 week lead time would be enough time. Nope. But, the additional $[XX] did get them to me in 3 days. I did want to give props to my customer service contact who was very apologetic as to the circumstances and did take a focused effort in making sure the expedited shipping was put into motion.


They work as they should


Nice chains with all the correct hardware for installation..


Much heavier chain than [other vendor] wanted to sell me and $[XX] cheaper per set. Also arrived in a timely manner, totally intact. A local welder will be happy to install. Stay away from Camping world. I cam in with 3 known issues and asked for them to do the work but I needed a cost estimate first. Called for an appointment in April. Couldn't get in until Jube. Came in in June but saud they were 2 weeks out. Left trailer and told them I was leaving in a week for a month long road trip. emailed me an estimate one week into the trip. Ridiculous expensive. Came back and told them no deal. Charged me $[XX] for the time it took to do the estimate. They also would not apply the cost of the estimate to the repair work to be done. Through with [other vendor]. Should have read all the negative reviews online first....tbere are a ton of them. etrailer? Easy to work with, carefully explains what product to get to solve the issue, and tell you how to install. Love etrailer!


I need the peace of mind that these chains provide. My previous chains purchased from an auto store bent at the S and I lost a trailer!! Yes I over-specified by buying these chains from etrailer, but now I sleep at night. You don't want the nightmare of losing your trailer on the road from a double fault from crappy safety chains.

  • Are Safety Chains Required for Clevis Style Ball Mounts
    You have a clevis style ball mount and it will require the use of safety chains by law. The only type of connection point that will not require safety chains is a king pin like the ones used on 5th wheel trailers. If you need a set of safety chains I recommend using the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit part # 49150. This kit has mounting hardware to mount the chains to the trailer. The chains themselves are 44" long and have a 16,000 lb weight capacity. I have attached a review video of the...

  • Are Safety Chains Required When Towing Gooseneck Trailer in Georgia
    You'd have to check with the local highway department in Georgia to verify, but from what I was able to look up there are laws in Georgia that require safety chains when towing with a gooseneck hitch and trailer. For a set that have a 16,000 lb capacity we have the part # 49150 which would work great if you are in need of a set.

Let me know if this doesn't work out for you and I can see if we have something else that better fits your situation.

  • Do Safety Chains Come With Reese Goose Box Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter?
    Though safety chains to do not come with a Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter such as RP94623 they are available by using the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit # 49150. If you look at the accompanying photo you can see exactly how they will mount on a Reese Goose Box. I've added links to video reviews of these parts for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Safety Chains for 16K Gooseneck Trailer
    To replace your safety chains, I recommend the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks - 44" Long - 16,000 lbs - Qty 2 # 49150. We don't have just a 10 inch extension that is capable of that weight requirement.

  • Can Safety Cable Extensions Be Used on a 10k Trailer
    I do have an option for you but for safety reason, we don't recommend using safety cable extensions on this application or with something this large. These are used exclusively for flat-towed vehicles. I instead recommend replacing the safety chains on the trailer entirely with a longer set more suited for your needs. I'm not sure of the exact length you need but we have plenty of length options for a trailer this size. The Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks part # 49150 for example...

  • Safety Chains and the Reese Elite Series Gooseneck Kit Compatibility
    The Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks # 49150 you ordered fit on the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit you purchased. My recommendation is to feed the clasp all the way through the loops and connect the clevis to the chain itself if you desire the clasp latch. The clasp isn't required for your chains to work with the clevis hook.

  • How Long Is Each Chain in the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit 49150
    Yes, each chain that comes with the Tow Ready # 49150 is 42" long, and 44" in total length when you include the clevis hook in that measurement. These chains have a total capacity of 16000-lbs and are a zinc plated steel to help resist corrosion.

  • Safety Chain Recommendation for a 10,000 lb Horse Trailer
    For a set of 42 inch chains that have 16k capacity that would work great for your 10k horse trailer I would recommend the part # 49150. These are normally used for gooseneck hitch setups, but they would work well for you and have plenty of capacity.

  • How to Choose Correct Safety Chains for a Bumper Pull Kingston 7K Horse Trailer
    As long as they are properly rated you can use cables or chains for your trailer, although I will say that chains are typically used for trailering while cables are used more for flat tow situations so I would default to chains. The Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks # 49150 is a solid option that's rated for up to 16K trailers and they measure 44" long. When choosing safety chain length you need to have enough room to be able to cross the chains as well as be able to take tight...

  • Recommended Safety Chains for New Coupler and 1/2 Inch Bolts
    For a 1/2 inch bolt, you will normally need a chain that has a 5/16 inch link diameter like # 49150. To utilize your current chains, I recommend simply changing your hardware and using Grade 8 bolts that fit your chains using the largest size that will fit your links with appropriate washers and locknuts. This will obviously require drilling additional holes.

  • Available Safety Chain Hooks to Connect Chains to a Curt Gooseneck Ball and Hook Set
    I recommend upgrading both the chains and hooks on your trailer, like # 49150. Without knowing the capacity of your current chains, picking a replacement hook with the matching weight capacity will be impossible. Replacing the whole chains set will be the best option. I have attached a link that will take you to our safety chain product page. Once you know what weigh capacity chain and hook you are needing for your horse trailer you can choose one from this page.

  • Safety Chains for 7000-lb Car Hauler Trailer
    As with any other item on a trailer, such as tires, wheels, winches or jacks, when selecting safety chains you want to ensure a good safety margin, in other words, you want to use an item that has a good bit more capacity than you will actually need. I suggest the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks, part # 49150, which is a set of two 44-inch chains with mounting hardware.

  • Recommended Safety Chains for B&W 5th Wheel Hitch and MorRyde Pin Box
    We do not carry any type of bed saver for the B&W hitch. The product was discontinued and no manufacturer we carry does anything similar. For your safety chains, I recommend the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks - 44" Long - 16,000 lbs - Qty 2 # 49150. These chains are not required on a 5th wheel hitch, so they will require a customized install on your MorRyde Pin Box.

    For the best gooseneck hitch that comes with chain loop connection points, I recommend the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1019. This hitch will fit perfectly into your 2021 Chevy Silverado's 6-1/2 foot bed and involves an underbed installation. Apart from the 30,000 pounds of gross towing capacity and 7,500 pounds of vertical weight limit, the Turnoverball can be flipped over for complete bed access when not towing. It is also 100% made...

    Hi Don, Since you have a 1621 bolt pattern the Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter # RP94716 would be the correct fit for your 2024 Forest River Sabre 34FLX. I've attached a short video below where Dave will walk you through the installation process if you're planning on completing this yourself. If you don't have safety chains already then I recommend also picking up part # 49150.

  • Troubleshooting Bend In Trailer Frame and Safety Chain Length
    Your safety chains would not cause your trailer frame to bend like you pictured even if the safety chains are barely long enough to attach. It would be wise to get longer safety chains, but you would need to have amazingly strong chains, bolts, and hitch chain loops to cause your trailer frame to bend before the other parts failed. It looks like someone jack knifed the trailer to cause a bend like that. The good news is the back side of that frame rail still looks straight and will most...

  • Safety Cables or Chains Rated for 16,000 lbs for 5th Wheel Towing
    The highest rated safety cables we have are the Demco Straight Safety Cables # DM9523051 which measure 54" long and are rated for 14,000 lbs. For something rated at the 16,000lb weight limit you need chains like the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks # 49150. Standard 5th wheel trailers don't require safety chains so you will only need them if you're using an adapter like the Reese Goose Box RP94716 that uses that gooseneck ball connection.

  • Can I use 20k Safety Chains with the Reese 16k Goosebox?
    Because the bolts used to attach the chains to the pin box are different sizes on the 16k and 20k, the Reese 20k safety chains # RP49151 are not directly compatible with the 16k Goosebox. However, after speaking with my source at Reese, we determined that it won't be an issue if you just match the bolt sizes up with your Goosebox. The 16k chains # 49150 use a 1/2" diameter bolt and the 20k chains use a 9/16" bolt, so depending on the bolt hole size on your Goosebox (which is probably...

  • Can Gooseneck Safety Chains 49150 be Used with Cattle Trailer
    The Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks # 49150 have a 16,000 lb trailer capacity so as long as your trailer weighs less than that when loaded these would be a properly rated safety chain for your setup. The length of these is also 44 inches so you might verify that this length would be sufficient as well. In general this is a length that works well for most so I wouldn't anticipate it being an issue. For a higher rated chain set we have the part # RP49151 which has a 20k capacity...
