Protector 16mm chain with Abus 37/80Lockitt.com proudly presents the Protector range of security chains and Torc anchors for the USA and Canada.
Protector chains are the result of an obsessive drive for quality and unmatched strength. At the end of the day, we value quality more than profit making.
It would have been easy (and highly profitable) to source our chain in China, match it with a mediocre lock and sell it at a high price ... but we didn't.
Instead we teamed up with Pragmasis Ltd, a small UK manufacturer, people just as obsessive as we are, and brought you these ....

Made in mainland Europe from high grade Boron steel and put through a rigorous heat treatment process in the UK. Each batch is sample lab tested to ensure quality and strength levels are consistent. This is something we strongly suspect other brands, of which most are made in China, do not offer.

You may notice, we do not use words like "resistant or virtually" when we claim these 16 and 19mm chains are bolt-cutter proof. That is because they are..... plain and simple.

Our current range starts at 13mm link gauge, a size more practical (portable) for bicycle use, and goes up to much heavier 16 and 19mm chains. Notice also the long link design which allows link through link lockup. Depending on your application, this could make it possible to use a shorter chain. See examples below.

Check our Security Chain info page for more information on chain materials, hardening and sizing.
And a nice quality comparison image that tells it all :-)

All Protector chains are offered with a strength-matching top quality German made ABUS lock at a strongly reduced (subsidized) price. If you are looking for a combination of several chains and (keyed-alike) locks, or a custom length chain, email us at info@lockitt.com for a personalized quote.

Dealer starter packs are available for Powersport and Bicycle shops who want to offer a higher security level than currently available from main lock brands.

16mm Protector chain
Bolt-cutter proof

Protector 16mm High Security Hardened Boron Steel chain

We are not kidding .. it really is

A slightly smaller gauge than the 19mm version but with significant gain in weight and price, the Ultimate 5/8" - 16mm does not lose much in protection. This 16mm chain is just as Bolt-Cutter proof. The only difference is in the WOW factor ... and your wallet.

 Protector hardened boron steel Protector chain is available in 3.3' 1.0m, 5' - 1.5m and in 6-1/2' - 2.0m Made in the UK, Sold Secure Motorcycle Gold standard approved by Great Britain's independent Sold Secure testing house.

13mm Protector chain

Protector 13mm High Security Hardened Boron Steel chain

Super High Security Long-Link Chain

With again more weight and price gain, over the 16 and 19mm chains, this 13mm Protector chain is the best choice for portable lockup situations.
Make no mistake, the 19mm chain is not practical to carry around and neither is the 16mm version.

This 13mm chain is available in 5' - 1.5m and 6.5' - 2.0 meter lengths.

Made in the UK, Sold Secure Bicycle Gold and Motorcycle Silver standard approved by Great Britain's independent Sold Secure testing house.

Highly resistant against standard and readily available bolt-cutters.
NO, a standard hardware store bolt-cutter will NOT cut this chain. It will take a massive and very expensive 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.

Torc Anchor

Full solid D anchor with 3 variations mounting system. Without a doubt, this is the strongest permanent ground & wall anchor we have ever seen.

Torc Ground Anchor features a 20mm (0.79") hardened full D shackle, held in place by a 12mm (1/2") thick steel plate bolted or chemically welded to a concrete floor, brick wall or steel truck or van floor. What makes the Torc Anchor so strong is the massive full D ring which will have to be cut twice in order to be defeated. With a zinc phosphate finish followed by a tough powder coating, this anchor has one of the best corrosion protections.

Torc Anchor cannot be cut with a bolt-cutter no matter what size. If cut with a grinder or torch, 2 cuts need to be made before it is defeated and pulling it out of the concrete floor is virtually impossible when installed with the advanced chemical resin capsules. When properly installed, resin achieves a much stronger bond with concrete than mechanical solutions.

  •  Kit A: Our standard anchor comes with special bolts, 4 chemical resin capsules, steel cap bearings and comprehensive instructions.

  • Kit B: Include standard expansion bolts, as used in most of our other anchors, for use in concrete, brick wall or other more porous surfaces

  • Kit C: For truck / van floor mounting with special break-away bolts.
    Both kits A & B are supplied with the right size masonry drill bit and a tube to clean out the drilled holes (a crucial step when mounting a ground anchor)

Torc Anchor

Just how big are those chain links?

19 and 16mm are BIG and only practical for stationary use at home or at work. The combined weight of chain and lock make it not practical to carry your motorcycle or bicycle security solution around. Unless you absolutely must, of course. If you still need high level protection, want to stay with long-link Protector chain but need to carry it with you, go with a 13mm chain.

Keep in mind that both 16 and 13mm chains (not 19mm) can interlock the end-link into any link, anywhere in the chain. You can even combine 2 chains, making a figure 8, interlinked with only one lock.

 Protector size

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 weight and dimension chart for each chain on the individual product pages). 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. Generally speaking, 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 almost 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 16mm chain offered from other brands, often with lock included and at a lower cost. What is the difference?
China made chainPretty much all other brands on the US market use China made chain. Their steel composition and hardening process is mediocre at best.

A good example is the china made security chain shown in the image to the right. Look at the steel quality and welding, then look at our Protector chains and decide for yourself.

As for included locks ... some of those locks carry impressive names but look more like a joke to us. This is all not to say that a cheap China made chain offers no protection. On the contrary, even a badly made chain is better than nothing at all but just make sure you are not charged a premium price for low-end product.

At Lockitt we take pride in the products we represent and will pair top quality chains with top quality locks. The China made products we carry will always have a price range reflecting their quality.

We could easily import a 16mm China made chain, pair it with a mediocre lock and sell it with a killer profit. But delivering quality trumps profit making here at Lockitt and this is what sets us aside from other brands and sellers.


2 chain Lockup 

2x 16mm Protector chains in double (figure 8) lockup with one padlock.
In this example we used 2x 1.0m (3.3ft) chains to make a 2.0m (6.5ft) setup. 2 shorter chains are way easier to handle and provide more lockup flexibility.

Any Link Lockup

You can insert any link in the chain into any link anywhere in the chain (13 and 16mm chains only)

Double Loop Lockup

Example of one 16mm Protector chain in figure 8 with one lock.

13mm 1.2m Protector chain with 68 Victory lock

A solid lock-up using the very hard to defeat 2 part rotating lock. Because of the separate parts, you have to hold the chain while inserting the bolt trough the chain into the lock, this setup is slightly more difficult to use. The advantage however is a compact and highly secure lock design with minimal weight. Total weight on this 1.2m Protector chain with ABUS 68 lock is 8-1/2lbs

11mm 1.5m Noose Protector chain with Abus Granit 54 U lock

In this image we locked the bike to a post, using the Protector 11mm 1.5m (5ft) Noose chain in combination with the Ultra-Strong ABUS Granit 54 X-Plus 9" U-Lock. Notice the noose ring allowing the chain to grab the front wheel before passing through the rear wheel and into the lock. Total weight on this setup is 11lbs.
