Laclede Chain, the oldest chain manufacturer in the U.S.A., is revolutionizing the chain industry with their new app. The app features the two divisions of Laclede Chain: Hardware & Industrial and Traction.
The Hardware & Industrial portion has features everyone can use. Our easy to use calculators do the calculations for you. Calling all heavy haulers! Our tie down calculator tells you the size of chain and number of chains needed depending on the load weight you enter. Riggers can use our sling calculator to help determine the accurate alloy chain size to use in their overhead lifting. Lastly, everyone can use the quick load reference calculator to help determine what grade and size of chain needed for small to extreme loads. Calculators are just one of many features this app contains. Our information section contains rigging procedures, handling tips, and the chain wear table. Want to learn how chains are made?

This is the first app of its kind, designed to make it easier to find the right pair of tire chains for your vehicle. Not sure how to install tire chains?
