Chains can be used to secure large items and are used in conjunction with a padlock. For example, when securing a bike to a cycle rack, a single padlock would not do the job. The chain can be run through all parts of the bike to ensure the bike cannot be stolen, or have single parts stolen from it.
A chainset is a combination of a chain and a lock. This combination is needed when a padlock on its own cannot secure and item. The chainset works by having a chain that can be used to secure a moveable item to a non-moveable item, then the padlock completes the chainset by securing the ends of the chain.
Chainsets can be bought as a set, or can be made up from purchasing a specific chain, and a specific padlock. As long as the padlock shackle is long enough to secure the chain, the chainset will be complete. Chainsets that are bought as one item are generally cheaper than chainsets made up from specific items.
Heavy Duty Chains
Heavy duty chains are used when the value of the item to be protected is high. Heavy duty chains will normally require specialist cutting equipment to break the chain.
Heavy Duty Chain
When securing an item with a heavy duty padlock, it is important to use a padlock which is equal to the task of the chain, and so a heavy duty padlock is recommended to compliment the heavy duty chain. The chain will only be as secure as its weakest link.
Padlock and Chain
A padlock and chain is used where a padlock is not sufficient. For example, securing doors temporarily if a standard lock is broken. The padlock and chain combination can be used to secure two door handles together.
