full power to brakes. So yes they will lock up quick
also do whatever makes you feel comfortable as well. If you like it threaded keep it that way as long as the end of it is secured to the TV and not the chain. I just prefer it on its own if not for maybe getting tangled somehow in the chain or if the chain gets hit and it pulls the pin by mistake (which wouldn't be fun). With it up out of the way on its own I can look after a bit better in my mind.
at the end of the day don't lose sleep over it. I am sure it will never happen. I have never heard of a complete disconnect and even the ones in accidents where they get flipped usually the trailer is still attached
