If I purchase a chain kit that only comes with one lock, should I choose "Keyed Different" or "Keyed Alike"?
1 Answer
For just one kit, you would choose "Keyed Different". You only need "Keyed Alike" if you plan to buy multiple kits or locks and you want them all to use the same key.

The chain and lock are impressive. Some say it may actually cause some added attention to thieves and I agree but if you're securing something of value it's worth it. No chain and lock will keep your valuables secure 100% of the time, it's simply just a deterrent. The better your deterrent is, the better the chance thieves will move on to the next target, kind of the same as if you're being chased by a bear. You don't have to be the fastest in the bunch, just don't be the slowest. Also, if you're looking at the chain price and thinking you've got a pretty decent lock already so you can save some money, make sure that your lock shackle is properly guarded because a thief will look for the weakest link to cut and that may be that sweet Master lock you thought looked indestructible. Also consider how easily that old trusty lock can be picked, many hardware store locks are easily opened with very little effort by amateur lock pickers. You'll be bummed out when you come back to see your valuables missing as well as your expensive security chain when just a little more cash on a purpose-built lock may have deterred the thief altogether. The Viro locks are designed for this purpose, once that chain is locked the thief won't be able to access the lock's shackle which, outside of an angle grinder, there won't be much they can use to cut it.

My only gripe is that nobody seems to offer a rubber chafe sleeve as an option. Despite the chain being electro-galvanized it can still rust. An employee at Pewag told me if you're trying to prevent any rust on the chain, a rubber chafe sleeve would be better than nylon. Just make sure you lock it facing sleeve ends down to keep water from getting in the sleeve itself. Some say they used a bike inner tube but that's not so easy when you have longer lengths of chain to work with. A standard sized tube is almost impossible to get over the chain further than 2 or 3 links and even if you can get it on you still have to piece multiple tubes together. I for example have a 12ft length of chain to cover, it's going to be a challenge. Due to the timing with Covid-19, all bike shops are closed in my state and getting a bike tube manufacturer to go take measurements of deflated tube widths isn't happening so I suppose I will have to wait on that. No matter the chafe sleeve material, I highly recommend one even if you're not worried about scratching up your valuables. Pewag pointed out to me that when a thief attempts to cut through the chain with a grinder/cut off wheel, the nylon or rubber chafe sleeve will gum up their equipment which slows the cutting process, increasing the chance someone will notice what is going on.

As for Westech Rigging, I'd give them an A . They offer the best price in the US on this chain, hands down. It amazed me to see how many people are trying to sell new or used lengths of this chain on eBay for far more than Westech charges. Shipping was fast and their customer service reps are very courteous. As of the time I'm writing this the policy is free shipping on orders over $199, I wish they'd mention this more clearly instead of having to go half way through check out to see this as that makes a decent difference when you're trying to do price comparisons or you're on a budget. Of course their policies and promotions can change so don't just assume it'll ship for free, double check.

The bottom line is that the rule of thumb on securing valuable items is you should budget 10% of your item's cost for securing it. The mountain bike I'm securing was about $4k so $300 on a lock and chain to make sure the bike is still there when I get to it makes sense and to me is worth every penny.
Merchant Response:Awesome, thorough review, thanks Gary! We're sure others will find it helpful too.
Pros
  • Provides peace of mind. The chain looks like a job to get through it as it truly would be. Most would-be thieves will take a hard pass on anything secured with this chain and lock combo.
Cons
  • None. Some say the higher weight or the price but that comes with the territory so to speak.
