What are these?

Hi chaps,

Has anyone seen these attachments that are bolted to the trailer, the box section pointing downwards and the other one with the ring bolted to it? They are bolted to a late 80's snipe 17/900.

Yep it's an old anti snake brake basically you had a hinge with ferodo between to prevent excessive side movement from that was like a single leafe Spring arm which fitted on top of the white plastic under some pressure and slid back and forth as you turned corners. A caravaning thing back 30 years ago

Cheers

Thanks Jeff and Chris.

Would the box section have been part of it or is that for something else?

That's part of it. The long flat steel bar sits in the box and moves on the nylon plate. You don't need one on a rib if the trailer is properly balanced so take it off or you will be for ever walking into it.
