Review of Laclede Chain Accessories and Parts 2114-553-04

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 2114-553-04, this is the Laclede 48" long Safety Chain. Safety chains are going to connect the trailer to the tow vehicle and they're going to act as a safety system in the event that the trailer coupler would disconnect or come off the hitch ball. Safety chains are going to be required in most states. When it comes to the chain diameter, measuring the diameter of the link, that's going to measure 3/16", it's going to give us an overall length of about 48". When I took a measurement of the link opening, measuring this direction from inside edge to inside edge, I had about a 1/2". Measuring this direction in the link opening, inside edge to inside edge, that measured about 3/8".

This is class 1 rated and it has a 3,0000 minimum breaking strength. It's made in the USA. The chains are going to have a nice protective finish on it to keep it safe from rust and corrosion. What you'll need to do is you'll need to find the middle of the chain when you're ready to install this and that's going to be the area of the chain that's going to connect to your trailer with some mounting hardware. Your hardware's not included so you will need to provide that separately. The hooks are then going to attach to the safety chain loops on your vehicle's hitch.

When connecting, we do recommend that you cross the chains under the coupler and that's going to keep the coupler from dragging if the trailer we're to come disconnected from the hitch ball. The chain's would create a cradle and they'd catch that coupler if it was to ever to come off or disconnected from your hitch ball. When it comes to the loop right here, the opening size that we have, take a measurement of that real quick, it's going to give us an opening of about 3/4" and the diameter of our hooks, that's going to measure 3/8". Nice, sturdy steel construction, these chains are going to be very strong and durable and with this part number you're going to get one 48" long safety chain. That's going to do it for our review of part number 2114-553-04. .
