Ive simply gotten a smaller chain for the hold, and draped the chains through it. Feels great so far, and gives me about 100lbs at the top.

I love it to. You should see the look on some peoples' faces when they walk by in the morning or later at night to see some fat guy in nothing but his underwear with 400 pounds on his back in the front patio.

A hardware chain called Bunnings. They are 3/8" chains, I got a total of 17.4 metres, 8x 1.8m + 2x 1.5m because I ran them out of chain :D/ A total of 56 feet of chain at $5.60 per foot. Overall there are 88lbs of chain at $3.55 a pound.

Keep in mind I can buy much cheaper from industrial suppliers, but Im well off and I just bought what I found first.

Sweeet.

Had my first run today, 308 on the bar + the 88lbs of chains. **** was ****ing awesome, blasting out of the whole and then BAM. This will help me so much with getting out of clean.

Thanks guys!

DAMN! I found mine at a Tractor Supply store for $1.65 a foot! Plus mine are gold [looking], so I look like Mr. T when I drape them around my neck :)

Nice! Like I said, i could have gotten them cheaper. But without sounding snobbish Im a well off kid and simply walked to the store right next to me rather than snooping around for the best deal.
