Step 4: Lesson on Jack Chain

Picture of Lesson on Jack Chain

Since jack chain is not welded together, it can easily be pried apart with some force. With a chain that is welded, you would need a hacksaw to get it apart.

Step 5: Pry

Pry one end of the wire that makes up a link of the chain, then slide the other end onto it. Like ring on a finger.

Step 6: Close the Chain
