The Missing Link : D shackles and safety chains

Late last year there were a series of emails regarding D Shackles for Safety Chains. Queensland legislation does not mention the load of shackles but does cover the methods of attaching chains to the trailer, the strength of the chain and the strength of the attaching point on the bow bar. How you attach the chain to the tow bar of the vehicle is the “missing link”.
