A: Zinc plated and galvanized both rely on zinc to act as a barrier to corrosion. Galvanized products have a zinc layer ~10x thicker than zinc plated and provide much longer protection against corrosion.
A: It comes on a spool, usually 25-50 feet or more depending on the size. It is just sold by the foot. So if you want 4 feet of chain, it's all just 1 piece.
A: 4 ft of the chain will come together in one piece.
A: Unfortunately, information regarding the weight of a single link is unavailable. However, the chain weighs 1.3 pounds per foot.
A: The other answer seems to miss the point of the question as no one expects to have to cut his own chain purchase in a store. Better phrased, the question might have asked, "How hard (or easy) is this chain to cut, such as with a bolt cutter by a criminal intent on breaking and entering" The chain is listed under "hardened chain" but does not seem to be described, weighted, or priced as such. A chain of this size was just cut yesterday by burglars using my own bolt cutter that they had stolen last October 2017. Evidently, and again showing the primary & 2ndary educational deprivation that pervades in Calif bay area (silicon valley,) the purveyors of WWW advertising were not able to distinguish between Hardened (cut resistant) and "high-test" (breakage resistant).
A: The store has a chain cutting machine and can cut the chain to the length you need.
A: Mike, your question lacks detail sufficient to figure its meaning and provide an answer. Are you seeking a chain that is not too difficult, say, for you to cut? Or a chain that is very difficult to cut for someone else, such as a trespasser? As you can see, there is no sensible answer to both questions at the same time!
