Why is this grade 30 chain yellow zinc and listed as security chain.

Answer

The case hardened steel will make it difficult to be cut and will be appropriate for security chain.

How large padlock will go thru it?

For the chain the inside width and length dimensions are 1.23 and 0.62 inches, respectively. Any padlock with lock diameter of less than 0.62 inches should work.

What about a non-cut/saw pad lock?

If you want to stick with something that HD usually stocks, the Master M930XDLH Magnum is one selection. The 11 mm octagonal boron-carbide shackle is thicker than the chain and will be more difficult to cut than the chain.

What is the rating of this chain? Can it be cut with a bolt cutter?

Asked by Pooter September 22, 2015

Answers

The chain does not have a chain rating. This is a specialty chain – a security chain, not intended for lifting. Chains intended for lifting have ASTM / NACM grades, specialty chains such as security chains may not have such a rating. This chain should not be used for lifting and has no chain rating. --- As far as if it can be cut with a bolt cutter – I have the HK Porter 42 inch 0590MC Industrial Grade Center Cut bolt cutter, which is arguably the most powerful bolt cutter on the market short of a hydraulic bolt cutter. It is 46 inches long and weighs 18 pounds – not something that is easily carried or concealed. The only realistic way I can see to transport this long-distances is in a vehicle. I weigh 180 pounds. With the bolt cutter on a solid floor, with the handle resting against a solid stop, jumping up and down on the handle with my full weight for maybe 30 seconds or so I was able to crack and break a link of the chain. Unlike what the information states, the chain is NOT case hardened (where just the outer surface of the link is hardened) – the chain is through hardened. The chain is very hard, but also quite brittle. Once I got the bolt cutter through one part of a link the link suffered a brittle fracture at the other side. So unlike chain that is actually case hardened, this chain can have a link fully removed with just one cut. If the chain is located in a position such that the bolt cutter cannot be placed on a solid floor (such as if the chain is located up on a fence, etc.) I believe it would be impossible to get sufficient leverage on the bolt cutters to crack the chain. Compared to a common 3/8 inch grade 30 chain – the grade 30 chain can be cut rather easily with these 42 inch bolt cutters. But because the steel of this grade 30 chain is substantially more ductile, it needed to be cut in two places to remove a link. So this security chain is substantially more cut-resistant than a standard grade 30 chain. A 24 inch bolt cutter would not be capable of cracking this security chain – and I think one would have an almost impossible time cracking it with a 36 inch bolt cutter. An angle grinder or a die grinder can cut through this and any chain given sufficient time, but the noise and sparks are not something that most burglars would want to deal with. So can the chain be cut with a bolt cutter? With the right bolt cutter in the right situation – yes. In most realistic situations – I very much doubt it. As far as security chains go this is a pretty inexpensive one – bottom end of what I consider effective. If you just want to lock up something so the casual person can’t get in I would say this would be a good value. If you want to lock up a $30,000 motorcycle in downtown New York or London I would get one of the thicker higher-quality (and significantly more expensive) security chains.

Will a padlock fit through this size link?

Asked by Duck July 27, 2015

Answers

A padlock with a shackle of 14 mm (0.55 inches, about 9/16 inch) or less will fit through a link of this chain, even with a link on both sides of the link that the shackle is passed through. There are very few padlocks with shackles larger than this. But if you use a padlock with a shackle guard or a round padlock you will need to make sure that two links will fit into the lock body opening, as you will be fastening the lock through two links of chain. (One link of this chain will not fit through another link). I would suggest either trying the lock before you buy it, or using a lock with an open shackle (not with a shackle guard). A common lock that HD carries is the Master M930XDLH Magnum padlock. It has an 11 mm (7/16 inch) open shackle made of hardened boron carbide steel. A thief would have better luck with a brute force attack against the chain than this lock.

Great heavy duty quality. However, I did not know it was so heavy, so unfortunately I will not be able to use as intended. But it is a quality product. I will just keep it instead of returning.
