Attachments for brake cable

Hi all; I have a simple question. How are you attaching your brake cable from your trailer to your TV? Are you just clipping it to your chain or somewhere else on your vehicle. Thanks for your thoughts

I do not clip mine to the chain. I clip mine to the "D" ring on my hitch receiver. The same place I clip the chain hooks.

We will double the loop and connect it to the hitch pin/Clevis pin holding our hitch head into the receiver.

on my F150, under the bumper is the place to hook the safety chains when using a ball installed in the bumper. its not real visible but it there. I have ins a receiver which has its own holes for chains.

I use a quick link, similar too:

Everbilt 1/4 in. Zinc-Plated Quick Link-42704 - The Home Depot

I attached the link to my TV where the trailer chains would get hooked up.
