Safety chain holder is used on trailers up to 3.5t.
Safety chain must be welded on its entire length, top and bottom or at least 110mm.
The safety chain is required to be attached to the trailer via a hammerlock or have a chain link welded on the horizontal on the chassis rail. Short link galvanised safety chain connects a hammerlock to this versatile safety chain holder.
One chain is required on trailers up to 2.5t and two chain holders are required for trailers up to 3.5t. Galvanised safety chain must be stamped with its rating every 4 links.
Whilst it is not essential the safety chain is connected in this manner, it is preferable.
Why? A welded safety chain could become damaged or shortened. It is then impossible to easily replace. The old chain must be cut off and a new chain welded into position.
The most comprehensive legislation regarding safety chain can be found here. Further, check your breakaway lanyard when hooking up your safety chains.
