    no actual experience with that chain, but what I can tell you is that:

    - the chain has square links not hex, which means it's a little weaker.
    - it's only 9.5mm thick, where as most chains are 10, 12, or 14mm thick. So it's weaker there too.

    But it's still a strong chain, just not the strongest. The lock is very solid though. And for the price it's not the "best" deal, but it's darn good.

    I ordered one. I'm in Dallas, so I'm not terribly worried....this will be used on my bar hopper anyway. I called and asked the guy how it compares to the the Krypto chain, and he said they're about equal. I guess I can't put much weight into that, he's trying to sell his product.

    $38 shipped aint bad, and it looks a lot more solid than options other than the $120 krypto chain. I'll report back when I get it in the mail.

    Looks like a quality lock. Abus is a good lock manufacturer. The chain could be snapped by some 42" bolt cutters, but probably nothing smaller than that. Reasonable amount of security.

    Quote from link:
    "CHAIN- This 3/8” square link chain, manufactured in Austria by PEWAG, GMBH is “case-hardened” to resist cutting by 3-foot long bolt cutters, hack saws, reciprocating saws and/or electric grinders."

    This is bull. A grinder with a heavy duty wheel will cut through that chain. However, a grinder will cut through any lock on the market, so that doesn't really matter.

    The key cylinder appears to be a standard abus pin tumbler. If that is true, one could drill out the cylinder plug fairly easily.
    I think, for the money, it is a good lock system. Gotta be heavy though.
    Ride.
    Enjoy.
    Repeat.
