Safety Chains and Cargo Tie Downs for 6 x 10-Foot Flat Deck Utility Trailer  


What size safety chain is recommended for a 6 x 10 trailer with a single 3500lb. axle? Also, what is the best way to attach the safety chain to the trailer, welding a loop or bolting? Please attached pictures. Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the photo of your utility trailer that appears to already have safety chains installed near the coupler.

Safety chains should be selected based on trailer weight and on the length you need. If your trailer has a 3500-lb-rated axle then chains like 60-inch 5K Curt part # C19749 would provide sufficient capacity and their latching hooks will make for easy attachment. If you prefer shorter chains you might prefer the 27-inch 5K # 2118-605-04. For a weld-on bracket you might use # MB38 or # MB12.

If you're looking for cargo tie-downs for the trailer we offer bolt-on cleats like # RR05 and # LRB1 and also weld-on items such as # J-705.

Links to both safety chain and tie-down products are included for you.
