... now I have a new question(thanks goodness for your blog!). Someone took the clip at the end of my safety cable(the one attached to the emergency hand brake)and in doing so, shredded some of the cable wires so I think I need to replace the whole thing. It appears that I can bend the hook attached to the brake itself and take the whole thing off...what would you replace it with? I'm guessing Ace hardware in Davis may carry wire cable but I would need to find a way to hook it at one end and attache it to the hitch on the other. K. B.
Thanks for asking,,,
I'll bet that clip came unhooked and was drug a few miles... Go to a farm supply store (Ace or Rural King or Tractor Supply) and seek help. They sell the wire cables, fasteners to create a loop in the cable, 'caribeener' clips to replace the missing one. You should at least add a few inches of cable so that it doesn't become too short and bind when making turns or something... if that trips the brakes your trailer will stop on a dime.

My daughter didn't have the hitch secured and the trailer came unhitched on a railroad crossing. The system worked and stopped the trailer. Then they had to replace that "trip-wire" altogether.
Glad I could help again!
