From Product Conception to Distribution

Product development often begins with an idea and many hours of drawing and planning. When Mr. Chain’s drawings are complete we take them to local mold maker, American Die and Mold of Buckley, Michigan. We are all very excited when the finish mold is delivered to the shop and are very close to seeing the product itself. Foreman Rob Baker and Vice President Dennis Stacey run the first shot. There is always a lot to learn about a new mold. Most always, the temperature of the material needs to be adjusted. In some cases the mold will even go back to American Die and Mold a few times before we have the final version capable of producing superior products. As you can see from the series of pictures below of Mr. Chain’s Carabiner, the shots begin to look much better as adjustments are made. The product is now ready for distribution.

Be the first to see the X-Treme Duty Stanchion!

This American- made, original M R Products' design is strong and durable yet light for shipping. The stanchion has a variety of features for ease of use. Equipped with a water bladder that can hold approximately two gallons of water, the stanchion is ideal for heavy-duty, industrial uses. The ribbed handle combined with wheels located on the base make the stanchion highly portable, empty or full. When not in use, the stacking bases store with ease. The stanchion weighs approximately 25 lbs. when full of water.

The X-Treme Duty Stanchion will easily accommodate Mr. Chain's 2”, 2" Heavy Duty, and 3" chain. With a keyhole slot and built-in c-hooks, chain can be run in one continuous length or cut to specific lengths.

Mr. Chain will be exhibiting at the NSC Show from September 30, 2013 to October 2, 2013. Stop by booth #1100 to see the X-Treme!

Stay Safe this School Year

With so many eager children running around the school grounds, safety measures are extremely important. One area of concern is busing. Ease confusion by assigning a color to each bus route and, using Mr. Chain plastic links and stanchions, create corresponding spaces near the bus loading zone for students to wait in. Not only does it make sure everybody gets on the right bus, it also keeps students away from the vehicles until they’re safely parked and ready for boarding. Additionally, driveways and streets near crossways can be blocked off to protect pedestrians, or cars can be routed in a particular direction to facilitate traffic flow.

One advantage with using Mr. Chain products is that they are lightweight, giving you plenty of flexibility. They can be put in place during high traffic times and removed afterwards, and can also be easily moved while in use. The safety barriers can be ordered in your school colors. We also offer stanchions and chains specifically designed for pedestrian crossings (pictured above). Visit to find a safety solution that works for you.

Yellow Chain vs. Caution Tape

Mr. Chain supplies hundreds of feet of yellow chain to the construction industry every year. There are some real advantages to using plastic chain over yellow caution tape. Plastic chain is more durable and will not snap or tear due to weather conditions. It is a great solution for ongoing projects. In addition to being light weight and portable, plastic barrier chain is also reusable and recyclable. And perhaps the most noticeable advantage, your work area will not look like a crime scene!

 No caution tape here!
