Tired of  replacing your broken breakaway cable? Are you stabbing your fingers with the frayed end, or looping it over and around things to keep it out of the way? You need the new Fastway ZIP spiral coiled breakaway cable! This new trailer breakaway cable & switch is designed to keep your cable off the ground & out of harm's way. It is faster & easier to use than a standard cable. When it is connected, the high-strength coiled cable goes straight from the switch to the trailer & never drags.

Snap Link, 3/8" OD X 4" L

4" Long, Large Snap Link

 If you must fasten the break-away cable to the back of the tow vehicle with a snap with a smaller opening (3/8"), order the 5/16" Snap Link on the Butt Chain page.

 

This large size snap link is 3/8" in diameter, 4" in length. Zinc-plated polished steel. This snap is what we recommend to securely fasten the Break-Away Switch Cable to the tow vehicle, because it has a large (1/2") opening & it's easier to find a place to fasten it to.

Trail Pals Tip: Please take a good look at to the rear of your tow vehicle. After the safety chains are crossed & clipped to the tow vehicle, attach the break-away switch SEPARATELY, and clear from the chains. The switch is designed to pull out if the trailer looses it's connection with the tow vehicle, and then activate the brakes on the trailer (it stops the trailer so that it cannot move independently with the animals in it).  Make sure it can't touch the ground, or it may fray. Attach it to the tow vehicle where there is a place to snap it into, or in the same hole as the safety chain clip, but clipped separately. The cable must be capable of pulling the pin easily & completely out of the switch should the tow vehicle become detached from the trailer.
