This is the famous 5/8" - 16mm hardened boron steel Protector
chain in 6-1/2ft - 2m length, made in the UK.
Sold Secure Motorcycle
Gold standard approved by Great Britain's independent Sold Secure testing
Guaranteed to be bolt cut proof with any hand operated
cropper, even Irwin's massive 42" monster cutter.
Protector 16mm is
lighter and has smaller links (better handling) than its 19mm bigger
sibbling. Still one of the highest-approved chains available anywhere, 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
made ABUS 37/80 padlock, or the
ABUS 58/140 HB III 100 16mm U
lock, 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.
Package deal: We are offering this chain, combined with
German made 37/80 padlock or the very secure RotaLok, at a strongly
reduced combined price.
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.
16mm 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 look more like a joke
