Dressing up the Anderson Chains

Recommended Posts

I got tired of seeing my Anderson hitch chains looking rusted and I knew paint was only going to be temporary solution.  I considered replacing the chains with plastic/rubberized covered chains but found a lower cost option.  I used Techflex Flexo Clean Cut 1 1/2-Inch Braided Cable Sleeve, in black - 10 Feet.  Amazon sells it for $8 - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007VT09LS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The 10 foot length is perfect to cover both chains in my case.  It cuts clean with scissors and the ends can be burnished with a lighter.  You can still see through the braiding to make sure you have no twisted in the chain and it only took a few minutes to put on over the chains.  I used tie-straps braided through the last chain links on both ends to hold them in place.

You da man!  I've cleaned and spray painted mine each year before I put Twist into storage for the winter.  However, it appears that your idea will save me that time and effort - THANKS!
