5 1/2 ft coated chain with 4 ft. coated in bright polymer colors. This is sure to brighten up any swingset. The links are 1” long and the opening is ½” wide. You need to use the H140 - 145 5/16" S-hook with this chain. You can also use the H170 and H172 shackles, but you will have to force them through the coated part of the chain. Chain that is not bought from a playground manufacturer does not have the quality control and have been known to have weak links and can contain air bubbles. Tensile strength 3900 lbs. Sold invidually.
Installation: Chain should always be attached using the last link in length of chain. Assembly will depend upon use. Coated section should be used where children are most likely to hold. For instance on a swing assembly, the coated section should be attached to the swing. Fasteners may need to be forced through the polymer. If coating is too thick for fastener to slide through easily, you may have to use pliers to pull fastener through the coating or cut away some of the coating for the fastener to fit through link. Close according to Fig. A.19 for Fastening Devices.
Maintenance: Do the following to reduce the chance of serious injuries. At beginning and end of each play season and once a month during play season, check for rusty or worn chain. Carefully check hole around fastener to look for wear. Check for vandalism. Check to see that polymer has not been peeled away from chain resulting in sharp pieces of either chain or polymer. Replace parts if necessary. Check to make sure S-hooks and/ or H-shackles are closed properly. Maintain detailed inspection and maintenance records for public-use playground equipment.
