    This is Laclede's take on a security chain, which they call "Lockdown Chain". It sells extremely well, and since Laclede changed their heat treating process to make this chain even harder--62-65 HRC--we are confident it's going to sell better than ever! People simply trust the Laclede brand. They are a domestic manufacturer of many types of chain, including high-quality overhead lifting chain, tie down chains and tire traction chains. You can literally find their chains in use all over this great country--construction sites, passenger cars, marine applications, you name it, Laclede is there. They are smart too, with great engineering ideas. For example, their Lockdown Chain is thru-hardened, meaning it's just as hard to cut in the middle as it is on the outside. This makes the process slow and tedious for a would-be thief. Some of the most popular security chain on the market is only case-hardened, but Laclede's chain maintains its hardness the whole way through. Which would you rather have? This size of this chain is considered by many customers to be the most intimidating. At 1/2" (13mm) in diameter, it is the biggest, beefiest security chain we offer, and now, it's the hardest too. Made from quenched and tempered alloy steel with an electro-galvanized finish. It is worth noting that Laclede is the primary chain manufacturer we use for building Grade 100 chain slings because we trust their quality so much. This chain is available by the foot, in bulk drums or in kits paired with Laclede's super tough padlock.

    from Lansing, MI asked:

    Is this chain as good as Pewag's 1/2" chain?
    1 Answer
    Well, that's tough for us to answer and we try not to take sides. But given the specs on this new chain, we have to say it is every bit as good. The HRC rating is there, along with a galvanized finish. It's also 1mm larger, which could be considered good or bad. The real kicker is that it's thru-hardened. Really, you can't go wrong with either option. Pewag and Laclede both make great chain.

    Will this chain fit with the Pewag/Viro padlock #PW-4153?
    1 Answer
    No, this chain is 13mm, and just slightly too big. We recommend using it with Laclede's padlock, #LAC-8204-100-04 or #LAC-8204-101-04.
