#40 Standard Roller Chain Offset Link (1/2" Pitch)
Offset links, or half links, are used when a chain needs to be extended/shortened by only half the length of the normal pitch. These links feature cotterpins to seamlessly connect to original chain.
Standard roller chain is the most common form of chain used in mechanical drive applications. This type of chain is used in a multitude of settings ranging from industrial, to agricultural, to automotive. Heat treatment, shot-peening, and pre-stretching of chain improves its strength and durability and ensures maximum longevity.
