At the end of the spring bars are chains that run up to the trailer lift bracket. To install the chains you first hook up the trailer ball, lock it, and then lower the trailer jack to raise the back of the truck slightly, then hook the chains and pivot up to the lift bracket on the trailer frame. Then raise the jack. The spring bars should be level and supporting the weight of the front of the trailer.
