Product Description

Looking for a sturdy and safe chain for your play equipment? Check out our 3/16″ chain, made with Grade 30 4/O Aught steel that is both strong and durable. Measuring 27″ in length with a 31″ soft grip for comfortable use, the chain features a thick solid cylinder of plastisol that prevents pinched fingers and makes it easier to grip. Available in different colors to match your swing set, this chain comes with links that are 1″ long and ½” wide openings.

To ensure safety, it is important to use the A6500 – A6550 5/16″ S-hook with this chain, as shackles are not compatible. Buying from a non-playground manufacturer can be risky, as they may not have the same quality control, leading to weak links or air bubbles in the chain. This product can last up to 5 years in optimal conditions, and 2 years in harsher conditions, though some conditions may require replacement sooner. With a tensile strength of 3100 lbs, this chain is sold individually for your convenience.
