Safety Chains & the Ranch Hitch Adapter

Do you need safety chains?  If you plan on traveling cross country and you want to make sure you are in compliance with state laws that vary from one to the other then you should install safety chains.
We know that California, Texas and Indiana have safety chain requirements. Indiana safety chain laws are usually only enforced for commercial applications, but they informed us that if the hitch was a ball type, chains were required. Many states do not require the safety chains, which is why they are not included in the initial package (cutting out extra cost for the majority of customers).
