decorative chain support
great product. have used several on small boxes when the lid is to heavy for the hinge. Can be installed inside any small box and positioned to limit how much pressure is on the hinge.

Custom Winnie the Pooh Music Box
After completing this custom music box project I felt it needed a little something more. I found this beautiful decorative chain at Rockler and it is perfect! The lid has an oversized hinge but without the stop gap function so the chain solved this problem. I highly recommend this item.

I was unable to attach the brass plated steel support from Rockler--too complicated. The chain is much simpler.

easy to use. If they are too long for your project, it takes minutes to shorten them. Attractive.

The flatware box I made was to shallow for the slide support. This is the next best option to ensure the lid opens without damaging the lid or the bottom

Is this adjustable? Just wondering if you can remove links to shorten.
A shopper on May 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. You will have to back the pin out of the knuckle some. I used a fine nail set to start the pin backing out then a nail just enough to get the link out. I cut the chain to the length that I wanted and hammered the pin back in. It is a little tedious with smallness of the pieces but doable.
Do you have small ones for jewelry boxes ?
Jeff C on Oct 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used one for a box that was about 7 x 7 x 13. The chain could easily be cut down to for something smaller, but not if you needed a really fine guage. I can't remember exactly, but seems the thickness of the chain was about 1/8".
Will these work for a desk that folds up into a cabinet?
Jim S on May 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes and no. As it states in the description, it's decorative. It's probably stronger than it looks and would hold up for very light duty. But, if the lid is going to be used as a real desk with books and elbows leaning on it, I wouldn't trust it.
Is this chain strong enough to hold a fall front of a bar cabinet which supports drinks bottles and glasses? (I would install two of these chains at double length of 15" on each end of the fall front). Thanks!
Zoran P on Nov 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would say no. But if if were me I'd call to Rockler and ask them. They can tell you the weight it can hold.
Is there a 5 1/2 " chain for a game box application?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I was able to shorten the chain. I took the pin out of one of the "connection flanges", cut the chain, put it back, hammered the pin back into place. Was small to work with, but not very difficult.
does this come in a stainless steel or brushed nickle?
Peter on Jul 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They should really think about adding more options, especially some with "silver" look, such as stainless steel, chrome, nickle, or brushed nickle. The chain has to match the look of the hinges for a blanket chest, so you really have to find another product if you want a silver look, which is more popular these days.
What type of screws are these for mounting? And what is the center to center of the bracket?
