made in australiaWe think it is important you should know that this safety chain is made in Australia.

  • The Safety Chain rating is stamped every four links.
  • Two chains per trailer or caravan are mandatory on all trailers over 2.5t.

Note: We can also cut the safety chain to a special length for OEM.

Is your trailer or caravan chain too short?

The solution

  • cut the trailer safety chain from your chassis rail, leaving only the welded link remaining on your chassis.
  • Install a new piece of rated galvanised 13mm longer chain.
  • Connect the hammerlock to the new chain and the welded link on your chassis rail.

What you cannot do

  • Join multiple shackles until you reach the desired length.
  • Insert un-rated links

Galvanised safety chains and shackles are illegal on all trailers over 3.5t.

It is essential to remember

  • No chain welding over 2.5t
  • No chain welding below the chassis rails.
