Just received those chains off Ebay - brilliant service!!!

M+P sell the padlock and the same chain for 130 - I bought the chains for 9.99 each!!! Padlocks are about 40 or 50 off the same bloke.

The chains are REALLY heavy and are obviously high tensile because they make a "ting ting" type of noise when you knock them together.

Got my big bolt cutters on them today and not a mark - also tried a hacksaw - again not a mark - and I was REALLY trying!!!

Would make a really nasty weapon as well - in self defence of course if nothing else to hand.....

I can REALLY reccommend them and the bloke who sells them!!!

Glad you WERE so pedantic now - got myself a bargain!!!

Still leaves your prop dangling an awful lot of chain...

chaining

just wire the trailer to the mains

the rib will be ok as the rubber rollers will isolate it from the shock

job done

I like this one - ideal solution!!!

Maybe not the mains but an electric fence transformer would do a nice job!!!

Cant believe they were so cheap, there has to be a reason they are so cheap. Be funny if these chains turn out to be stolen
