I would submit that is not the best way to use safety chains on a dolly. Our safety chains are set to keep the car ON the dolly.
Happened 1 time (totally operator error) when one side strap basket came loose.
While on the freeway, I noticed something did not look right in the rear view cam (car's front end was not perfectly centered like usual).
Gently stopped and found that the end hook had turned on the mount eyelet (old style EZE-Tow) and the strap basket had shifted, became loose, and allowed slack in the strap
The car had slipped back on that side of the dolly frame...but THANKFULLY the safety chain retained the car on that side.
This is, of course very different from when a trailer or dolly tongue hitch parts.
