30t X 19mm Military Grade Truck Trailer Tow Bar Safety Chain Holder is mandatory on all trailers that weigh over 3500 kg.
Every trailer has a tow bar fitted, with at least a pair of safety chain holders. Mounting these holders on either side and adjacent to the tow bar coupling makes towing easier. Road Trains are an exception, however!
30t X 19mm Military Grade Truck Trailer Safety Holders must be able to withstand static forces that incur during towing and should be resistant to cracks or breaks.
Testing Safety Chain Holders
Testing safety chain holders are the starting point for road safety. Road safety starts with product safety and product testing.
Welding plays a crucial role in safety. Incorrect or unprofessional welding can cause dangerous situations.
Each holder must be capable of carrying the full load of the truck trailer.
