Malcolm - relax mate I have changed the set up. :redface:

I cut 3 links off the chain so now they will cross over underneath. I now have a pair of rated 2T D Shackles and some things (can't remember what they are called but they are rated over 1.5T) to join those to the chain

Pics in a bit

Cool. Much better.
Still surprised you couldn't get the shackle to fit the chain.

If you look in the left hand edge of each of the pictures you can see how close the links are in the chain - this is why no decent size pin was going through there.

Those link thingies are called hammerlocks aren't they?

I haven't got to use Katie since I cam back from Fraser, probably won't now till after Xmas.

Too many weekends ruined by the wife planning stuff on Saturday. I don't know how many times I've told her to leave weekends free and if she books a Saturday event she may as well book a Sunday

After reading some info on other forums I have found out that my poly block coupling on KT is not compliant with Australia standards. It is the coupling that GIC put on the trailer.

The coupling is stamped AS4177 rated 2000kg. That standard only applies to ball couplings. Being a poly block (tregg style) hitch it is covered by ADR62.

So I emailed them yesterday via their wesbite and I'm now waiting for a response.

Does anyone have any suggestions for hitch alternatives????
