Product Description

What Kind Of Chain Is This?
Perhaps you've heard of Pewag's now famous "3012" chain. Well, that chain is no longer available. It is a traction chain, and while it makes for a very strong and imposing security chain, it is prone to surface rust. It has no rust-prohibitive finish on it, because whatever surface rust accumulates really makes no difference in its service life as a traction chain. But since so many people adopted 3012 as a security chain, Pewag realized it could be even better with an anti-corrosion finish. Enter Pewag's new and improved 1/2" Security Chain--#56847. Same hardness, same toughness, now with an electro-galvanized finish. You may already be familiar with Pewag's 3/8" Square Case Hardened Security Chain--we literally sell a ton of it. This chain (#56847) is very similar, except it's 2mm larger (12mm or 0.472" to be exact). This makes it beefier and even tougher to cut.

This Is The Chain You've Been Hearing About
Whether on YouTube (click on the Video tab), a website forum or just word of mouth, you may have already heard about this chain. It's in high demand and available to you right here from Westech Rigging Supply.

What About The Lock?
This is Pewag's newest Viro padlock, which was hand picked to work with their 1/2" security chain--it's a true, high-security padlock, not something from the local hardware store. Its beefy design will certainly be a deterrent to any potential thief--it weighs just over 2 lbs. You may not want to put it in your pocket, but you'll be happy to secure your precious equipment with it. The lock body is made from a combination of brass and hardened steel that not only looks good, but also holds up well to the elements. Supplied with two Viro Top Security profile nickel-plated brass keys. We know you will be impressed!

  • Square, case-hardened links
  • Cannot be cut with bolt cutters--square link shape does not allow bolt cutters to get a proper bite, which prevents them from cutting the chain
  • Requires tremendous effort to cut, a great theft deterrent
  • Electro-galvanized finish for corrosion protection
  • Chain Hardness: 62 HRC Min.
  • Heavy-duty padlock protects the lock pin from being accessed, forcing a potential thief to deal with the hardened security chain
  • Lock body is electro-galvanized for corrosion protection, very durable, heavy-duty design

Can these locks be keyed to match an existing key?
1 Answer
Sorry, but we cannot answer that. Locksmith capabilities vary greatly from one to the next, so you would need to check with a locksmith in your local area. We can tell you that because the keys are dimpled, even getting replacement keys made can be a challenge.

Fantastic product. If purchasing the Chafe sleeve, be ready for a small project!
August 19, 2019
EXCELLENT products. Just be aware if you order a chafe sleeve with your chain, you'll need to install it yourself. And it's a very snug fit that requires designing your own crude little device to thread the chain through the sleeve. I found it works best to apply well-placed expletives during the process as well. The longer the chain/sleeve, the more difficulty you'll likely encounter.
ProsAll quality: chain, Viro lock, chafe sleeve
ConsI would have liked to get a labor discount for installing the chafe sleeve.

You've seen it tested on YouTube. You're hesitant to spend this kind of money on a lock and chain but you also don't want your bike, motorcycle, equipment stolen...buy it. From Westech. I shopped around and they offer the best lock/chain combo for the best price I could find. And I'm glad I purchased it. Offers the best peace of mind.
ProsStrong, best price, best product, shipped fast!
ConsHeavy (but necessary)
