What brand of breakaway switch?

I stupidly didn't secure my breakaway switch cable securely and it ended up dragging on the ground during one of my last trips... . It's not completely frayed through, but I'm not comfortable using it as is. Does anyone know what brand breakaway switch FR uses so I can get a replacement? I think they are all pretty much the same, but I just want to be sure. Thanks.

you could just buy one of these if all you need is a cable Zip™ Breakaway Cable » Fastway Trailer Products
This is what I did after the dealer did not secure the OE line properly when we picked it up and it wore through on the way home.

That may just be what I'll do. I just have to make sure that it won't get caught in the ProPride hitch assembly...

The fastway cable above is what I use, I got one when I bought the trailer and I like it a lot better than the old steel ones.

PM me your name and address and I will send you one. Like brand new. I crushed my switch by leaving the tailgate up and pulling out, DUH. I replaced the switch and a new cable came with it. Rig purchased 2 /2015.
