Handbrake breakaway cable

If your trailer, caravan, boat trailer or horsebox come loose from your car during driving it results in an extremely dangerous situation. In addition, every towed object has a handbrake breakaway cable.

Function of the handbrake breakaway cable

This cable ensures that the handbrake of the trailer, caravan, boat trailer or horsebox is pulled as soon as the towed object separates from the car during driving. If you have securely fastened the handbrake breakaway cable to a fixed point of the car, the handbrake is pulled when tension is applied to the breakaway cable. As soon as the handbrake is engaged, the towed object will be brought to a halt.

Check

If you have a Brink towbar, the breakaway cable can always be fastened to a specific breakaway point on the towbar. If you are buying a second-hand car, always check whether the towbar has a fastening eye. Always make sure that the cable is properly secured and that the brake system of the towed object are in working order. This should be checked by a certified technician of the manufacturer prior to using the trailer or caravan.
