Lifting Chains





The Ratchet Shop is dedicated to offering the highest quality ratchet straps on the market, giving you great products at great prices. We also aim to provide a convenient service, giving you a quick checkout and delivery. This particular range consists of lifting chains.

We offer grade 80 lifting chains, as well as various chain components. So if you’re looking for some lifting equipment, you’ve come to the right place. Choose between an extensive selection of different types of hooks, links and heavy duty chains. There are different types of chains to choose from, varying between single, two, three and four leg grades.

The use of the chain depends on the leg. Single chains for example are used for lifting loads in a vertical hitch. All of the chains we stock are made from high grade steel that has been quenched and tempered. These lifting chains are made from grade 80 chain, which is the minimum requirement for lifting operations. Each type of chain is available in lengths ranging between 7mm and 16mm.

What are lifting chains?

The Ratchet Shop is dedicated to offering the highest quality ratchet straps on the market, giving you great products at great prices. These great products cover everything you need to lift and manoeuvre equipment safely and efficiently, including high quality lifting chains.

Lifting chains are an excellent way to transport heavy items. All chain components, tags and identification for lifting chains are provided with certification for full traceability. This means that you can rest assured when you purchase lifting chains from The Ratchet Shop that they comply with all necessary safety regulations.

Why would you use lifting chains?

Lifting chains are suitable for a variety of applications. When it comes to the way in which you use the chain, this depends on the legs. Single leg chains, for example, are used for lifting in a vertical hitch, and are commonly found in use on construction and manufacturing projects. Three leg chains, which feature three lengths of chain from one central point, are often used for transporting equipment, including items that are too heavy to be moved by hand. We also stock two and four leg chains, both of which have multiple uses within a variety of locations - particularly within the manufacturing and construction industries.

Not only do you get to choose the right chain for your job, but you also have the option to choose from an extensive range of hooks, chain link sizes, and lengths. You can also add a shortening clutch.
