Our breakaway cable for an overrun coupling is a safety device used on trailers. It is used to stop the trailer in the event of an unexpected breakaway from the tractor unit and thus prevent potential accidents.

The breakaway cable is attached to the trailer coupling and connected to a hook on the towing vehicle. If the trailer is unexpectedly disconnected from the tractor unit, the breakaway cable is put under tension and breaks. This triggers the trailer's braking mechanism and brings it to a standstill.
