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?
Many customers believe this chain is the "perfect" size. At 3/8" (10mm) in diameter, it feels and looks beefy without being too big and cumbersome. This chain is 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.

Questions & Answers
Unfortunately that is not a lock we have on hand to do a test fit. The Abus website says the shackle is 33/64" which is about 0.516", and the Laclede 3/8" chain has an inside width of about 0.62". Based on these specs we think it should work but again, we cannot do a test fit.
Will this chain fit through a 1.5 inch hole in a trailer wheel?
- Perfect fit on ABUS 20/80 Diskus
- Hard to cut
- Less expensive than equivalent Pewag chain
- None that I know of.
- Good overall security against theft.
Less expensive, perhaps elevated Rockwell hardness score (above Pewag) and made in the states-shouldn't take a rocket scientist to purchase this Laclede over the incredibly well regarded, gold standard-Austrian made Pewag. (Added some Pewag chafe since their name is well regarded both by friend and foe...Laclede may need to toot their own horn more with some additional marketing and bright colored chafe with the name "Laclede" emblazoned throughout like the well regarded Pewag, Almax, Pragmasis...and the lower tier wannabes).
Staff @ Westech were terrific, communicative and shipped my order quickly. Thanks.
- Great for security chain, have not had it long enough for any other feedback
- Great product
deter thieves, they'll move on to easier targets.
Great Service Thank You Westech!
- Better than what I expected.
- Maybe too heavy for some people to handle long lengths on a daily basis.
- Strength, hardness
- Weight but can't have both
- Tough to cut for the owner too!
I feel very good about this chain. It is attached to the safe, and the wall with very thick heavy duty hasps and a good secure padlock. Nobody is going to walk off with this safe, and it's contents by cutting this chain.
I asked them to send me the link of chain that they had to cut to supply the short length that I needed. I don't have a lot of facility to test it, but this chain is hard. I couldn't hardly mark it. Let alone cut it.
This chain looks good too. Part of the time it is viewable, and I don't mind it being out in the open at all. I'm glad that I got it. The small extra expense of this chain is well worth the piece of mind.
- Bolt cutters won't cut it
- Costs more than regular hardware store chain, but well worth it
