Breakaway cable

Recommended Posts

Changed my car and new tow bar has a clip hole but  the brake away  cable  is nearly touching ground 

 

are there different lengths or is there a way of shortening

Wind it round the ball and bracket to shorten it.

What type of towball?  

Swan-neck style pass the breakaway cable over the swan neck from one side and thence to the clipping point on the other side to keep the cable off the ground?  I do this to keep my 12-core cable off the ground.

(NB Only Karabiner clip style breakaway cables should be direct clipped.)

 

Al-Ko only make/sell one length of breakaway cable and that is the style that should be fitted to your Bailey caravan.  https://ukshop.alko-tech.com/uk/products/caravan-accessories-1/towballs-accessories.html

Just use a bit of insulating tape to lift it up to keep it up off the ground. It will just get pulled off if the cable has to do its job.

I use a simple cable tie to hold a loop in the breakaway cable.  If the cable comes under tension then the tie will snap allowing the cable to straighten.
