Safety Chain Clevis Hooks Available in Various Sizes to fit Touareg Safety Chain Eyelet


We have a 2014 Touareg and I am looking for a Shackle or Clevis Hook that will fit the Touareg OEM Hitch Eyelet. Our trailer is 5500 LBS GVWR and the Safety Chains on the trailer are 5/16 Grade, SWL 1900 LBS with an ultimate break rating of 7600 LBS. The S Hook on the Safety Chains that came with the trailer is too small to fit the Touareg Safety Chain eyelet. What is the best size of Shackle or Clevis Hook that will fit the Touareg and be within the current Safety Chain specifications? Thanks.

I have a few options for you to consider, but I do not have the exact specs of the safety chain loops on your Touareg so you would need to pick from the following to see which would be the best solution.

We have Clevis hooks in various diameters that will attach to your safety chains. Here they all are:

For a 3/8 inch hook we have the # 6495-401-04
For a 5/16 inch hook we have the # 6495-301-04
For a 7/16 inch hook we have the part # C81970
For a 5/8 inch hook part # C81920
