Why the clevis in addition to the threaded link?I have stainless chain with a stainless clevis and threaded chain link to the bow eye. The chain is through a piece of clear tubing around the winch post so it’s quiet and not wearing on the post.
I have coiled nylon coated cable with clips for my trailer safety chains
Yeah, uncrossed you run the risk of the trailer/boat "pole vaulting" in the event of a disconnection. Bad sh.t!Don't forget to cross the chains either. When crossed, the trailer tongue will be cradled in them if it becomes disconnected giving you a chance to lessen damage and hazard to those behind you. Uncrossed, the tongue will dig into the road and create havoc.
Because the threaded link wouldn’t fit through the two links of chain and I needed the extra length so the link would barely go through the bow eye to keep the chain pretty short. I don’t want a foot of slack if somehow my winch strap and both stern Boat Buckles come undone or are forgotten about. I’m pretty sure I could flip my trailer and the boat would stay on it.Why the clevis in addition to the threaded link?
edit -- just realized you were probably talking about each end of the chain, not that they were connected together...

Looks like you were wondering about a different chain. You can file my comment away for future threads!Yeah, uncrossed you run the risk of the trailer/boat "pole vaulting" in the event of a disconnection. Bad sh.t!
Not to be dumb, but how do you remove the old hook from the safety chain? I would like to add a snap shackle as a replacement to the standard hook.Have I started the snap shackle/ safety chain trend?!!!! haha
I love it though.. Unhook winch once you stop on the steepest of ramps and yours ready to rock whenever you pull the chord for the snap shackle. Cant beat it.
At least it’s not a battery powered one...tool shaming.....u--u---uu---elitist
