Most of my chains I picked up out of the road. The nicest is a metric, 16 foot binder chain which I suspect came off a Canadian flat bed trailer. He must have been going at a pretty good speed around a curve... when I found it the chain was all in a big ball, like you had dropped one end on the ground and let the rest follow.

Most of my chains are 5/16" grade 70 cut to 10' with a slip hook on one end and a grab hook on the other.

Two chains here are 20' 9/32" and probably grade 120. They were overhead chains at a paper mill and had to be changed on a regular basis.

A friend gave me several chains he used when securing loads on his flatbed semi trailer. They were used to on-load/off-load and secure loads. They are 3/8" and really quite heavy. I very rarely use them - but nice to have, just in case.

I have many chains, mostly grade 70's. But I wanted a chain I could safely walk under, so I bought this 20 footer,
