JACK CHAINS – DOUBLE & SINGLE HALE BROS. INC

JACK CHAINS – SINGLE & DOUBLE

We’ve built our business since 1893 on a simple premise: manufacture the high quality chains our customers need at a competitive price. Whether your application calls for standard or custom chain, you can count on our products to deliver long-term performance and reliability.

One of our most versatile and highly requested products continues to be our high quality jack chain, which is available in a wide variety of lengths and sizes to suit your unique requirements.

Jack Chain is made of thin wire composed of figure eight shaped links looped between one another at 90-degree angles. Jack chain is widely used as a general or all purpose chain when strength and load bearing ability are secondary. As a general-purpose chain, its flexibility is second to none – whether you’re hanging potted plants, signage, lighting, decorations or anything in between.

Jack chain is not intended to support significant loads or be used where failure could lead to property damage or injury.
