This Grade 30 chain is 3/16″ thick and 4/O AWG, with a length of 27″ and a soft grip measuring 31″. The chain features a thick, solid cylinder of plastisol to make it easier to grip and prevent pinched fingers. You can choose from a variety of colors to match your swing set. The chain links are 1″ long and the opening is ½” wide. To use this chain, you need to use the H140-H145 5/16″ S-hook as shackles won’t work. It’s important to note that chain purchased from non-playground manufacturers may have weak links and can contain air bubbles, which can compromise the quality and safety of the product.
This chain has a tensile strength of 3100 lbs and should last up to 5 years in optimal conditions, although harsh conditions may require replacement sooner. Please note that this product is sold individually.
