Product Description

What Kind Of Chain Is This?
This is Pewag's original design for security chain, yet in a smaller, lighter size. It is surface hardened the same as the bigger 3/8" size (62 HRC Min.), yet because it is smaller, it does not offer quite the same level of security. But make no mistake, this chain is still very hard to cut and works well for securing bicycles, scooters and other similar items. On jobsites and in remote locations, a bigger chain might be a better choice.

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 7mm chain. It has a fully armored brass body with tempered, copper, nickel, case-hardened and chrome plated steel armor. It also features independent and rotating lock-bolts, made of steel with pull-resistant programmed head breakage. Ball type locking mechanism, key retaining and with 5 pin pull-resistant plug. We know that's a lot of tech speak, but the point is that this is a true security lock. And because it's compact and "in line", your chain security package remains small, sleek, lightweight and ready for quick deployment. We picture this as the perfect security chain kit for bicycle, scooter and even motorcycle riders.

  • 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
  • Clean, polished finish
  • Tested and proven as a traction chain, yet now incredibly popular as an anti-theft chain
  • 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

I plan on locking up an electric bike.  Sometimes I leave it on my rv bike rack overnight at a campground or I may leave for a while and go to dinner etc.   I also use the bike to go to grocery store.  So, I'm concerned not only about security but weight.   What is the weight of 6' of the 3/8" chain lock combo vs. the 9/32" combo and what would you recommend?

1 Answer
The 3/8" kit (PW-13620-K6) weighs about 11.82 lbs while the 9/32" kit (PW-21148-K6) weighs only 5.22 lbs.  There is a big difference in terms of the chain weight per foot, and also the respective padlocks used.  In terms of security, 3/8" will be much more durable, cut-resistant and theft-deterrent than 9/32".  That said, we have many happy customers using 9/32" security chain.

This does not look like the Blue Chain I see in some pictures. Does Pewag offer two different version of their 9/32" (7mm) Security Chain? Is it possible to get the 9/32" (7mm) blue chain with the Viro Padlock together as a bundle purchase?
1 Answer
The blue chain you're seeing out there is not actual security chain--it is actually Pewag's Grade 120 lifting chain. While it is tough chain, it's not nearly has hard as Pewag's actual security chain. We do not offer that chain bundled with a padlock, but it is available on our site in gray if you want to purchase it (click here.
