    Chain Shortener Applications

    These chain shorteners crafted from the highest quality and best practices are reliable and safe in operation. The unique design allows the chain to be used in a multitude of combinations to accommodate the demands of most applications. For example, when two chain shorteners are used in conjunction to lift a load, the two chains attached to each shortener respectively can be of different lengths. This allows lifting of asymmetrical loads convenient and easy. Please see the demonstration of correct usage below:
