Yeah me and my buddy bought a pickup truck bed trailer for cheap with "farm use" tags that had a single wire dog chain as the safety chain and did not have functioning lights.
I got the lights working before we left that farm and the first place we went with it was to my house and put 2 proper 3/8'' safety chains on it.
