For those of you that use the Andersen Ultimate Hitch, how do you hook up the Breakaway Cable? I thought, about putting it over the Ball on the Hitch, then hooking up the Coupler on top of it. Then I thought, it might prevent me from disengaging the Coupler from the Hitch when I want to disconnect. How do others do it?


God Bless!

Hook it to the box of your pickup, not the hitch.

I hook a carabiner to the chain plate under the gooseneck ball in the bed.

Same but back leg so that I can reach it from the back of the truck.

Friend of mine with an Anderson hitch had a loop welded to the back leg of the hitch to attach a caribiner (D Ring)
