Single jack chain


Recommended Posts

Interesting.  Slim broke Number 8 jack chain (breaking test load 240 pounds according to the web site above).  It appeared that he had two per hand.  He broke one #8 chain by chest expansion.

No, Dennis didn't actually break the chains.  Those are welded chain with at least 3/16" links.  Jack chain is not welded and it spreads apart as force is applied. Dennis breaks the locks connecting the chains, he told me they were 50mm (I guess he is referring to the case size).  I'm not sure how he does it besides huge exlosive force on the lock.  Note the picture in the Gallery, there is a broken lock on the left hand side.
