The best type of security chain is one with a link diameter of more than 16mm, as bolt cutters won’t be able to cut through them. The Guardsman 20mm diameter security chain is the strongest on the market, with links made from carbon alloy. A grinder attempting to cut this chain would be heard for quite a distance and the carbide in our chains will begin to disintegrate the grinder blade making the cutting process take a lot longer. An alarmed chain such as the Zovii ZCL10-120 will also emit a 120dB shriek when tampered with – an excellent added deterrent.
A chain is always better security than a cable lock. A cable lock can be cut in seconds whereas a chain will need bolt cutters and a chain with a link diameter of more than 16mm will defy even a pair of bolt cutters.
Depending on the size of the bike and position of the ground anchor, but approximately 1.5-2m in order to pass successfully through the anchor, wheels and frame.
Our security chains are made from carbon alloy making it incredibly hard to grind. The carbon element disintegrates the grinder blade as it rotates and therefore increases the time taken to grind through the link. It also creates a noise that can be heard for some distance.
If your chain has an alarm system, you should check the batteries regularly and inspect the chain for any damage. If it has any damage, such as deformations or cracks, or has had someone attempt to cut it, then it should be replaced.
If your chain link diameter is 16mm or greater, then bolt cutters won’t be able to cut it.
Yes, a bike security chain can be used in any weather, and our chains come in denier cover sleeves to prevent scratches to your bike. The electronic parts in the alarm on the Zovii ZC10-120 is also fully waterproofed and all elements of the lock have been made from anti-rust materials.
