How To Measure Chain Length


Measuring chain length can be a difficult task if you don't know what you are doing. There are various methods to measure chain length and the method you use will depend on the type of chain you have. Here are some tips on how to measure chain length.

The first step is to determine what type of chain you have. Different types of chains require different methods of measuring. For example, bicycle chains have different measurements than car chains. Be sure to measure the chain according to the type of chain it is.

Once you know what type of chain you have, you can start measuring it. Here are some methods to measure chain length:

  • Measuring with a tape measure- This is the most common method of measuring chain length. Take a flexible tape measure and wrap it around the chain. Mark the length of the chain with a pen or marker and then measure it with the tape measure.
  • Measuring with a ruler- If you don't have a tape measure, you can also use a ruler. Place the chain on a flat surface and measure the length of the chain with a ruler.
  • Measuring with calipers- If you have a set of calipers, you can measure the chain with them. Place the chain between the calipers and adjust them so that the calipers are the same size as the chain. Measure the chain with the calipers.
  • Measuring with a chain gauge- If you have a chain gauge, you can measure the chain with it. Place the chain between the chain gauge and adjust the gauge so that it is the same size as the chain. Measure the chain with the chain gauge.

Once you have measured the chain, you can then determine the length of the chain. If you are using a tape measure, ruler, or calipers, the length of the chain will be the length of the chain that you measured. If you are using a chain gauge, the length of the chain will be the size of the chain gauge that you used.

Measuring chain length can be a tricky task but with the right tools and techniques, it can be done with ease. Be sure to measure the chain according to the type of chain it is and use the methods outlined above to measure the chain accurately.
