Break Away Cables for caravans and trailers

If your trailer is unbraked then you will need a secondary coupling, which usually comes in the form of a stout cable or chain connecting the trailer hitch to the tow bracket. It is designed to keep the trailer attached to the towing vehicle if the primary coupling fails. The length of cable or chain shall be such as to prevent the trailer hitch from dropping onto the road.
Trailers over 750kg must be fitted with brakes and these trailers must be fitted with a breakaway cable. In the event of the main coupling failing, the breakaway cable will apply the trailer brakes and then snap off.
TheSteel Breakaway cable is designed to apply the brakes on a trailer or caravan in the event of the trailer becoming detached from the towing vehicle.
