This product is intended for residential purposes only.
This is a 19″ long, 3/16″ chain made of 4/O Aught and Grade 30 steel. It features a soft grip with a solid cylinder of plastisol to make it easier to hold and prevent pinched fingers. The links are 1″ long and the opening is 1/2″ wide. It comes in different colors to match your swing set. To use this chain, you need the A6500 – A6550 5/16″ S-hook; shackles will not work with this chain. It is important to note that chains not bought from a playground manufacturer may have weak links and air bubbles, as they are not tested and do not come with a warranty. This product should last 2 years in harsh conditions and up to 5 years in optimal conditions, although some conditions may require replacement sooner. It is sold individually.
