G80 x 8mm Safety Chain Hook Set | CTA-Certified

Australian trailer and caravan owners use tow hooks for convenience.

Bow shackles, D-shackles, and butterfly clips (or hammerlocks) are generally quite fiddly. Moreover, conditions like arthritis can make connecting and disconnecting trailer chain a seemingly impossible challenge.

Safety Chain Hooks make it far less difficult for you to attach and undo your caravan’s safety chains. Replacement 10mm and 13mm galvanised chain available here.

Moreover, opting for Austlift™ brand of hooks means staying legal and safe.


G80 Hook Set ADR Compliance (Component Type Approval)

While there are many options for trailer hooks on the market, Couplemate™ only stocks Austlift™ safety chain hook sets because they have a Component Type Approval (CTA-061305).

As discussed in our CTA Technical Post, Couplemate™ strongly believes in the significance of a CTA on trailer and towing safety.

Vehicle or trailer parts with a CTA guarantee that that the product (i.e. component):

  1. Has been tested to the relevant standards, and;
  2. Meets the requirements of those relevant standards.

These two factors ensure that Australians buying hooks or shackles with a CTA receive a safe product every time.
