It does, but only at a full 90° turn. There is more slack in it (obfuscated by the pin box) than there is in the safety chain so it should never be an issue. Of course I could just find another place to attach it... I will probably look for a spring link big enough to clip around one of the safety chain attachments, and just tack it on to that.

Hope you don't have to air up that airbag as often as I had to.
Depending on how bad the road was sometimes I had to air it up after every tow.
Maybe they changed the design so that it wouldn't "puff out" the air if over 35 lbs (?)

They supposedly addressed that with the second generation. I haven't lost any air in ~35 miles of towing.
