You would have to ask the people at train mountain.

Can they be ordered in other colors besides yellow and green?

I have only been able to find this size chain in green. The yokes I have powder coated so I can change that color.

I will look harder at finding chain.

I guess it probably wouldn't be too difficult to spray paint everything with a can of brown paint over what you have done. I just think that the yellow especially stands out. The green is just dark and likely would hide in the shadows.

I will buy a couple of sets of your safety chain yokes from you. I will wait to see if you can get the yellow parts done in brown instead, but if not I will just buy them as is. Thanks.

Hello Tim,
Slick idea. I like it and would like to buy one set to try out. Your post doesn't show how you would like to be contacted and payment arranged. Could you provide that info? Thanks!

Hi Bob and everyone else. I am currently out of the first batch of Ox Yoke™ Safety Chains. I am waiting on a supply of aluminum. 6061T6 is not usual stocked at the hardware store. I will let everyone know when I have them back in stock.

Thanks for everyone's interest.

I have enough aluminum to make up 130 safety chains. I am going to make a small batch at first to cover the needs of people that have requested them.
