Reese Trailer Safety Chains - Safety Chains - RP49151 Review


Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at the Reese 44 inch long safety chain kit, with the clevis hooks. It has a 20,000 pound gross trailer weight capacity. And it is for a quantity of two chains. Now, these safety chains will act as a backup if your gooseneck trailer becomes disconnected from your tow vehicle. And these chains are required in most states.

The safety chains do help ensure safe towing, and the application for these chains is designed to fit the Reese Goose Box 5th-wheel-to-gooseneck air ride coupler adapter, which is part number RP94720. We do sell that separately on our website. So basically, using this included hardware right here, what you'll do is attach the end link here on this zinc coated steel chain to the safety chain mounting lug that's at the bottom of the gooseneck coupler. There's one of those lugs on each side of the coupler, and you'll attach using this hardware, this link here. And then you'll take the other end, the clevis hook end, and hook it to the loops in your truck bed.

Now the chain itself, the link diameter on this is a 3/8 inch size. And the clevis hooks, let me just zoom in, I want to show you, on the clevis hook end, these do include these nice spring loaded keepers here, that'll help keep the hook connected, after you connect your hookup. This will hold it in place. And the opening, in other words, the measurement right in here that this hook will fit into is 1 1/4 inches. Now these are a steel construction, they're very strong and durable.

You can see they have a nice zinc coating on to help resist rust and corrosion. Weight capacity on these chains is 20,000 pounds. Now the overall length, we take one of the chains, and we measure the length from this end all the way to this link. So link to link, the total length would be 44 inches. And then the hook itself will add another five inches to that.

And again, this is for a quantity, you can see, of two safety chains, with the included mounting hardware. But that should do it for the review on the Reese 44 inch long safety chain kit, with the clevis hooks. It has a 20,000 pound gross trailer weight capacity. And it's for a quantity of two..
