Trailer Break Away


SKU: BR-BREAKAWAY Categories: ,


Trailer Breakaway System

Breakaway systems are vital contributors to trailer safety. These devices automatically engage a trailer’s braking system if the trailer becomes uncoupled from the towing vehicle.

How They Work

Each system includes a breakaway cable that attaches to the towing vehicle and then to the breakaway switch. If the trailer disconnects, the pin pulls free from the switch. The unit then triggers the trailer’s braking system to bring it to a stop.

Since these devices only engage if uncoupling causes the pin to disconnect, they don’t interfere with brake operation under normal circumstances.

Why You Need Them

Laws in numerous states require a trailer breakaway system to protect people and property if the trailer’s gross vehicle weight exceeds 3,000 pounds.


This model from the trusted experts at Fisk Tank Carrier is ideal for our custom propane tank service and installation trucks. It offers reliable performance for heavier payloads.

Each kit includes a generously sized breakaway cable to ensure flexible tension adjustments for numerous truck bodies. Installation through any appropriate method is quick and easy.


The Fisk trailer breakaway is lightweight, at just .39 pounds. It also offers a compact footprint, measuring 5 inches by 1.5 inches by 2 inches.
