LEXCO Supports Trailer Safety Applications (1)


Wherever there's a risk, a good backup plan is called for. In the case of towing, that backup plan exists in the form of towing safety cables. Lexco’s trailer safety cables are available with loop and hook end-fittings and are constructed using PVC-coated galvanized aircraft cable which is coiled to eliminate dragging when safely towing a trailer.

When it comes to towing, safety should be your top priority. Lexco trailer safety cables are designed for superior dependability, safety, and easy handling when connecting and hauling your trailer. Among the most important things to consider when picking out trailer safety cables is the weight you will be carrying as trailer safety cables are designed to carry a specific amount of weight that should not exceed the weight of the loaded trailer. Whether you’re towing a small trailer or oversized cargo, Lexco’s trailer safety cables are an ideal choice to ensure you get there safely. Use our 3-minute trailer safety guide to find the perfect product for you.
