Is it not a legal requirement to have a safety chain or other device fitted these days?

It appears so.

A braked trailer has to have the safety chain connected at all times...the penalties can be huge if the trailer breaks free and the brakes are not automatically operated.

You will also find that the instant a trailer breaks free it's uninsured...just hope it doesn't wipe out a Bentley.

Not a braked trailer (130 kg boat) but even so, the consequences to human life could have been horrendous. The insurance issue was not on my mind - more the damage to people. Yes I was lazy and did not connect the safety chain for a 500 metre run. Never to late to learn and hope others learn from my confession..

Trailers can be a pain..i often cart stuff about..and you really have to lash everything down well. When i first moved home i went over a hump back bridge with a twinned axled trailer full of pea shingle...too fast..started to snake..how i recovered ..i do not know..taught me to slow down..kids thought it was hilarious.

Taking the twin axle to the scrapyard this morning. Safety chain and welder at the ready :rolleyes:

 

Had a new combi boiler fitted yesterday. Heating engineer here til 10pm. He took all the copper and left the rest to me :angry: Still, got a lot more scrap iron to take to the scrappers. Always think of Jacky Pownall on Alfreton Rd when I go to the scrappers.

If you fell out of the back of a lorry, you'd land on some woman's lap! :rolleyes: there's going to be a big queue at the cardiology clinic when Ben leaves hospital...broken hearts. Need mending!

To everyone with ailments, strife and troubles, just remember that when darkness never seems to end, there will always be light to illuminate the walk of the roads we take.
