I'm going to go buy some chain to add to my lifting belt to make a dip belt...
Any recommendations on what size chain, and the length?
I'm assuming I should also probably buy two caribeaners (sp?) in order to attach/unattach the chain to the metal on my belt...
Anyone have any better tried and true recommendations?

A member here, borracho, has a link in his sig to a thread where he made a dip belt out of snow chains you put on your tires in the winter. I have no idea how much those cost but it is something someone has done before with success. I think he just had them laying around so he used them.
I needed a dip belt and had an old scuba gear weight belt I used. I attach weight to it with a long piece of nylon webbing. It's strong, lightweight and was free because I had all the stuff laying around the house.
I just used a piece of climbing rope with a good clip tied to each end. It looks stupid, but it works.
