So many to choose from does make it a tad tricky. Here's some short cuts to try and help you narrow your search a bit quicker.

SHORT Link Chains - Shortest length links, heaviest per meter (size for size), general the strongest formation. Used predominately in Marine for anchor chains but is also found on some farm machinery, conveyor systems and things that use gypsies or sprockets. Unless you have a very old anchor winch, some of which still run Mid link chains, you will need a short link chain. Short links come in assorted finishes, Standards and Grades. All short link chains are either Galvanised or Stainless Steel.
