Safety Chain Galvanised - 68cm long caravans and trailers to 3.5t

Safety chain galvanised - 68cm is the standard chain length used by Jayco and most Australian caravan and camper manufacturers.

The caravan and trailer safety chain are essential in case of coupling failure between vehicle and trailer. Worn tow balls and couplings are a major cause of coupling detachment from the towing vehicle.

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

  • Stamp safety chain 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.

Trailers up to 2.5 tonnes ATM must have at least one safety chain complying with AS 4177.4 - 1994 (Trailer and light trailer towing components – Safety chains up to 3.5 tonnes capacity), or as amended from time to time. This standard allows for steel safety chains by the following:

  • to 1.0 tonne, a chain size of 6.3 mm
  • up to 1.6 tonnes, a chain size of 8 mm
  • up to 2.5 tonnes, a chain size of 10 mm
