All the Best Brands--Including Pewag!
Security chain is a rapidly expanding market for us, but we've actually been selling it for years. The first security chain we ever offered is Pewag's 3/8" (10mm) #11696
. If you look in our database, the part number is over 20 years old! But in the past couple years, thanks to favorable customer reviews and expert opinion, Pewag has risen to the top as "the brand" in security chain. They now offer a smaller option, 9/32" (7mm) #14827
, and a larger version, 1/2" (12mm) #56847
. Additionally, they offer their 1/2" 3012 Traction Chain
, which has somewhat of a cult following, and is regarded by many to still be the best option. To top it off, Pewag partnered with Viro, a premium padlock manufacturer in Italy. They now offer a solid, high-quality padlock to go with each chain they offer.

One of the biggest changes for 2018 was Laclede's redesign of their security chain. Previously, it was thru-hardened with a lower HRC (still tough, but not ideal). But Laclede's engineering team was able to revamp their heat-treating process and improve their chain, now case-hardened, to 62-65 HRC. That makes it as hard, or even harder, than Pewag's chain. Plus, Laclede makes their chain right here in the USA! It is available in both 3/8" (10mm)
and 1/2" (13mm)
--yep, that's right, Laclede's 1/2" chain is slightly bigger than Pewag's, making it the most imposing security chain we offer in terms of size and HRC rating.
Peerless has a unique offering with their 7/16" Hex Blue Anti-Theft Chain
, which is easy to identify due to its shiny blue finish (rust-resistant) and hexagonal shape, which is very tough on bolt cutters. Their chain is popular too because at 11mm in size, it sits right in between the 3/8" and 1/2" security chains we offer, somewhat offering the best of both worlds.
