Best Way to Get Longer Safety Chains on a Trailer


I am changing the trailer hitch so it holds the trailer higher, however, the trailer chain is about two inches too small on each side. The chain is on a 2013 Jayco superlite trailer. The chain is one piece. How can I safely make the chain longer about 3 inches on each side? It has an S hook closed at one end on each side. I am towing with a 2009 Nissan Quest. Thanks

You can try using quick-links to add length to your safety chains, but your best option is going to be to use a different set of chains that are longer. For a 27 inch long chain rated at 5K, go with the # 2118-605-04. For a 48 inch chain with the same capacity, use part # 2118-348-04.
