    Product Description

    Protector  1/2" - 13mm hardened boron steel Protector chain in 3.3ft - 1.0m length, made in the UK.
    Sold Secure Motorcycle Silver / Bicycle Gold standard approved by Great Britain's independent Sold Secure testing house.
    Highly resistant against standard and readily available bolt-cutters. It will take a massive monster cutter and a huge person to cut this chain by hand.

    Protector 13mm is much lighter than its 16 and 19mm bigger siblings. Still one of the highest-approved chains in its class, made from high grade European raw material and put through a specific hardening process to become hard enough to resist cutters and saws yet flexible enough to withstand freeze and prying methods.

    Combined with the German made ABUS 37/60 padlock, you create a security system impervious to any quick 'cut and getaway' method. In other words, bring a big enough grinder for this one and expect to spend some time making lot's of noise and sparks. Even if an enterprising thief is able to cut through all this hardened steel, he will have to cut a chain link twice. This chain is also perfect to use with the ABUS 68 Granit Victory rotating lock.

    Package deal: We are offering this chain, combined with the 37/60 padlock at a strongly reduced combined price. You can add the 37/60 lock for only $80.00.
    In addition, you can use the SHIP coupon at checkout. Depending on where you are located, this will give you free or strongly reduced shipping cost.

    Do I need 13, 16 or 19mm chain?
    This depends on where and what you are locking up. Keep in mind the total weight for chain and lock (see below for chain weight and any decent lock starts around 3Lbs). Due to weight and size, the 19mm Protector chain is for stationary use only, it is simply too heavy to carry around. 16mm is still very heavy and not really designed to take with you. 13mm is light (compared to 16 and 19) while still providing serious security. If you need a portable solution, stay within the 10 to 13mm range. If weight is not an issue, depending on your security needs, go between 14 and 19mm.

    What length do I need?
    The main advantage these long link Protector chains have, besides being ridiculously strong, is that any link can be interlinked anywhere in the chain (13 and 16mm chains only, not the 19mm version). This means that you can make loops at each end, working with 2 locks (or permanently attach the chain on one end), rather than looping the chain in a full circle with one lock. Less chain length is less weight and much easier to work with.

    I see 13mm chain offered from other brands, often with lock included and at a lower cost. What is the difference?
    Pretty much all other other brands on the US market use China made chain. Their steel composition and hardening process is usually mediocre at best. Look at the welding on a China made chain, then look at ours. As for included locks ... some of those included locks carry impressive names but do not impress us (or a thieve for that matter)

    Reviewer: michael white (JAMAICA, NY)

    Great chain! This is not the chain you would find in your local bike shop or motorcycle / auto store. It's of very good quality and a thick, heavy duty, well made chain. Ideally, you would want a 16mm or 19mm chain at 6 ft (1.8 meters). But it also depends on the value of your property/vehicle. Now while a determined, professional thief can get through just about anything with the right tools and time, this chain is still definitely a very good deterrent to the opportunistic, amateur thief. I'm happy with my purchase and i would recommend this chain.
