U-Bolt-It provides welded chain, weldless chain, stainless steel chain, and chain accessories to be used in various applications. Chains designed for pull applications should not to be used for lifting or hoisting purposes or when failure is likely to cause damage to property or persons. You should avoid jerking or acceleration in most applications as rapid stress on the chain can cause hazards. Actual applications should determine the size and grade of chain to be used. We also can provide stocking transport chains and wire rope clips.

Transportation & Lifting Chains

  • Grade 30 Chain: This is a welded chain made from a grade of low carbon steel. Grade 30 is a durable chain made to NACM and ASTM standards for a wide range of applications including towing, securing, logging and guard-rails. While this chain can be used for towing, it is not made for overhead lifting applications.
  • Grade 43 Chain: This chain is made from a high carbon steel, providing excellent strength to weight ratio. It has a high resistance to wear and abrasion, making it great for high stress applications including binding, lumbering, construction and more.
  • Grade 70 Chain: This heat-treated carbon steel chain can normally bear a 20% larger load compared to grade 43. This means you can use lighter and less material providing easy handling and less storage space needed after use. Grade 70 is often used in towing and logging applications. It can also be made to meet California Highway Patrol and DOT requirements with a gold chromate finish.
  • Grade 80 Chain: Made out of a high grade alloy steel, this chain is designed for safe overhead lifting and can be used in lifting slings. Grade 80 is also often used as a tied down chain to secure industrial loads on flatbed trailers for secure transportation.
  • Stainless Steel Chain: This chain, whether as type 304 or 316, is made to be used in highly corrosive environments, including around acidic chemicals and salt/sea water. Stainless steel is also resistant to high temperatures. This chain is not made to handle the load of overhead lifting.

March 7, 2016, 4:06pm Let me put it this way: January started my 37th year in this business, (I’ll be 55 in June, so I started when I got out of high school). Nobody ever calls when you go over and above and get them out of a bind. You can fill 99 out of 100 items, and they will call and bitch about that one item. Very seldom do they let you know how you got them out of a bind., or did the extra for them, or stayed late or delivered stuff on the weekends, etc. They have come to take it for granted, but I suppose we created the monster by the service level we maintain. And service is what we have that the big guys do not. John Wilson, there at U-Bolt It, did a fantastic job for us. I figure the sizes and quantities we were requesting were a little of a shocker, but John was all over it. And we appreciate all that he did. All of these SS U-Bolts were for our nuclear plant here in Mississippi. They went on re-fuel outage a couple of weeks ago, which they do every two years. And when they go on an outage, it is wide open for about a month. Cost doesn’t matter, freight doesn’t matter, get it here, and get it here fast. I’ve been through about 10 of these outages, and they never plan ahead very well. So compliments are in order for John and whoever else there did these for us. U-Bolt It did an exceptional job and we do appreciate it. Anything else comes up like this, you will be the first on the list. Let me add this though…..I’m not totally convinced that John went out in the plant and got his hands dirty….just saying

– M.
