Product Description

**NEW CHAIN DESIGN WITH HARDNESS RATING OF 62-65 HRC!**
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 adaptive too, willing to make changes with their engineering to keep up with modern demands. For example, their Lockdown Chain used to be thru-hardened but with a lower HRC rating. Laclede's design team determined their chain would be even tougher to cut being case-hardened yet with a much higher HRC rating. They brought this change to market quickly, and now have a security chain that stacks up against ANY competitor.

What Size is This Chain?
At 1/2" (13mm) in diameter, it is the biggest, beefiest security chain we offer. 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 with quantity discounts available, or in kits paired with Laclede's super tough padlock.

  • Square, case-hardened links
  • Made from quenched and tempered alloy steel
  • Electro-galvanized finish for corrosion protection
  • Designed for securing valuables such as construction equipment, trailers, ATVs and water crafts
  • Chain Hardness: 62-65 HRC

The chain is rated at Case-Hardness: 62-65 HRC. Can you tell me the Thru-Hardness rating?
1 Answer
The inside of the chain is in the 40-50 HRC range. The entire chain cannot be in the 62-65 HRC range because it would become far too brittle.

For security chain, without a lock, do I click quantity to add feet?
1 Answer
To order this chain by the foot, simply enter the quantity you want in the box, then hit Add to Cart. For example, if you want 5ft, then simply add "5" to the quantity box. If you want several cut pieces, then add to the total amount to the box, and then at checkout tell us what cut lengths you desire. Please bear in mind we do charge a cutting fee for multiple cuts of chain.

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.

This Laclede chain is without question a high quality product. The size alone would have thieves moving on to a different target, the chain is that big and intimidating. I highly recommend.

13mm hardend chain 5
This security chain is off the hook. If you have anything with extreme value, this chain is a must have. This is perfect for heavy equipment, anything that's worth thousands of dollars.
Pros:This chain is off the hook, intimidating. This must be the chain that was holding down King Kong!!!
Cons:This is a home security chain, not something you want to carry in your backpack.

Great security chain 5
Great security chain. Similar price to Pewag but this chain is through hardened and slightly thicker. I actually bought this as a kit with the lock but wanted to leave separate reviews for each. I also purchased the 1 3/4" nylon sleeve to go over this chain. Fits great, but is not easy to get on if you have a long section to do. I ordered 10' of each and the fit was perfect with about 2 1/2 links of chain sticking out of each end. Will be locking up motorcycles with this chain and the extra piece of mind is well worth the cost over cheaper products.
Pros:Made in America, through hardened, thick links, very strong.
Cons:Can't slip links through each other to use normal shielded padlocks.
