Q:I assume this product comes with detailed directions which would include cutting the tongue where you want to install the swing-away. Are there any missing details which might create a problem?
I have some concern about how to avoid the electrical wires which run through the tongue of the trailer.Asked on 8/3/2011 by Anonymous from Springfield, Mo
Q:Has there ever been a hardware failure? Due the design what would happen if the long bolt or pin gave way while driving? It appears that in event of failure of either part the trailer could swing out to either direction that being quite disastrous if a very hard stop was required.The trailer would jackknife onto itself or swing to oncoming traffic! Would the safety chains have to be moved rearward to behind the device to prevent the trailer from going its own way? I ask this due the fact have been towing trailers for 30 years and almost lost 2 during that time, due to pin failure,someone forgot to install retaining clip.Asked on 5/21/2011 by Anonymous

Q:Where do you make the cut on the trailer tongue to connect this?Asked on 7/12/2009 by Anonymous
A:Well, that depends a bit on exactly what you want to achieve. If your goal is to shorten your trailer by as much as possible then cut just ahead of where the upright that supports the front of your boat meets the tongue.
However, if you're cutting the tongue on a trailer that carries an unusually heavy hitch load, the kit does comes with a table that shows the relationship between how far from the hitch you mount that bracket and what your maximum tongue wait can be post-install. It takes about 1 minute to read and figure this out, don't stress.Answered on 10/23/2009 by Sylvan boater from Alberta, Cda
