LB Superjet, is it leagal to run the chain like that?  I need to put chains on my trailer but I dont weld! I'v seen them bolted on. I'll also be changing my toung, I just hate drilling holes on any trailer! But hell I need to paint it any way!
hey dude, it might not be legal, but its just a temporary one till i get a nice mount welded on. i dont weld neither! just at my former boss' shop...i already cut it off since im only towing local right now...i need to get something done..just get a friend or something to MIG a crosmember on that u can wrap twin cables onto the underside and you'll be ready to paint...thats what i plan on doing  ;D ;D

Nice boat is nice!

what do you guys think of this kind of coupler? i had one on my sanger project. i liked the fact you set the height and backed in or pulled straight out. i had to draw it, can't find a picture.
i can't decide if i want to put this style on my new trailer or not. does anyone have one of these?

dont quote me on this, but i remember the discussion of this style came up and one time and someone said they have been deemed to be illegal/unsafe....maybe illegal to install on new trailers? i dont know

either way, they are real blood blister making pinching bitches.

personally, i'd just stick with the traditional kind.

here is the thread i was talking about....

http://www.performanceboats.com/html/forums/showthread.php?t=6106

yeah, they look cooler then the standard ones, but after reading peoples reviews that have dealt with them, i'd stick with a standard one.....it looks like its unsafe for towing and lots of blood blisters from getting pinched by it.

LOL, i guess i should of opened that link :-[ i thought is was for the square new style.
there must be issues with that style because i can't find any anywhere! ok i'll stay with the traditional style.
thanks brad

my sanger and tahiti both have this style, and i find it very safe! i dig em, but there is alot of fatigue placed on the ball!


If im not posting..I'm pooping!

Just buy a new spring. McFadden-Dale has them or home depot, etc. If you need size, length I can check mine. I have the same type.
