Product Description

What Kind Of Chain Is This?
This is Pewag's original design for security chain, which we have been selling for years now. It is surface hardened to 62 HRC Min. which makes it very hard to cut. This chain is in the "sweet spot" in terms of size and toughness, being much bigger than the 9/32" chain yet noticeably smaller than the 1/2" chain. This chain is extremely hard to cut (check out our YouTube videos) and works well for all kinds of equipment whether on the jobsite or at home. For urban environments, you may want to check out the smaller 9/32" size (think bicycles).

How Is This Chain Different From The 3012 Chain?
For starters, the 3012 chain is no longer available. It is actually a traction chain that was not originally designed for security with a plain finish that was vulnerable to surface rust. The 3012 chain is also bigger at 12mm in diameter. While this chain is hardened 10% deep, the 3012 chain is hardened 6% deep. From a cosmetic perspective, this chain is silver while the 3012 chain is black.

What About The Lock?
This is a true, high-security Viro padlock that was hand selected to work with this 10mm chain. It has a fully armored brass body with tempered, copper, nickel, case-hardened and chrome plated steel armor. It also has a hardened bolt--this is a true security lock. Its size is just right, because it's beefy enough to look substantial and intimidating yet small enough to remain portable and easy to handle. The lock itself weighs just under 2 lbs.

  • 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

Will you cut to size?  I only need 18", not 5'.
1 Answer
We can cut to any length required, just leave a note in the comments box during checkout.  Please be advised we charge only in 1 foot increments.  So if you want 18" of chain, you still pay for 2 feet.  This chain is sold by the foot at this link.

Seems Tough Enough to Protect my Stuff
August 1, 2019
I've never actually done any "bolt-cutting" but this setup, lock AND chain, seems heavy duty enough to protect against all but the most determined of thieves. I didn't want to put something lighter duty on my gate and then regret it if someone got through it. It seems the only way through this would be to actually cut the gate itself... which could happen but the thief will either need to come FULLY prepared or go back home and get more tools than would normally be required. This is more expensive than something lighter duty but peace of mind has a value too.
