What Kind Of Chain Is This?
3012 is a traction chain that was simply found to be very effective as a security chain because it possesses all the right qualities. It has square, case-hardened links that cannot be cut with bolt cutters. Additionally, the square link shape does not allow bolt cutters to get a proper bite, which prevents them from cutting the chain. This chain simply requires tremendous effort to cut and is a great theft deterrent. Unlike all of the other security chains we offer, this chain has a plain, polished finish with no resistance to corrosion (you may want to paint this chain or use a Cold Galvanizing Spray
. It has a surface hardness of 62 HRC Min.
What About The Lock?
A true, high-security padlock made to work with square security chain. Its heavy-duty design will certainly be a deterrent to any potential thief. This beefy padlock weighs almost 2.5 lbs. You may not want to put it in your pocket, but you'll be happy to secure your precious equipment with it. The brass lock body is 3 mm thick and hardened to 50 HRC. The shackle / pin is 0.43" and is nickel-plated. The lock also ships with three single sided keys designed to activate the 5-tumbler design, and the keyhole is protected with anti-drill steel. This lock works with both 3/8" and 7/16" chain.
Keyed Different vs. Keyed Alike
If you plan to buy just one kit, or if you want multiple kits where each lock takes a different key, then choose locks that are "Keyed Different". If you want to buy multiple kits (perhaps for use at one facility) and you want all locks to take the same key, then choose "Keyed Alike".
