Our chain repair has the same width and depth at the repair as the chain in its original condition. The links move freely and do not bind to each other. (Note: inevitably with some chain styles, the links immediately adjacent to the repair may freeze together, this is unavoidable.) The repaired area will have the same color, luster and appearance as the rest of the chain and is free of tool marks. The alignment of the chain from side to side is even and smooth with no visible seams. The chain will form a continuous line where it has been repaired. The findings and jump rings will be of the proper dimensions and are attached securely and evenly.
