Why not a small removable wheel on the front jack that acts like an anti-locking brake so the loose trailer will roll in a straight line giving direction with some braking action but not allowing the jack to crumble to the ground while the main wheel brakes stop the run away trailer. Most likely would prevent a lot of A frame damage. You could remove the wheel and put on the foot plate when parked or parked for a long period of time. Another million dollar idea.

The idea is, if the hitch comes off the frame of the tow vehicle, the breakaway switch will never activate, since it is attached to the part that fell off (along with the trailer).
You can hook the loop through a convenient spot in the bumper, or frame, of the tow vehicle. If the frame falls out from under your tow vehicle, the trailer getting away from you will probably be the least of your problems.

The small ball is for a friction sway device. You would also mount a ball on the trailer and attach the unit between the two balls. Looks like this
