1.2mm Stainless Steel Boxchain Choker 6.25mm ID with Padlock



Basic men's choker with 20mm padlock (from bunnings) as clasp,
There are two large 12?mm ID 1.5mm Stainless steel rings at the
ends for the padlock to pass through, and at the center (back) there
are a pair of EPDM rings for safety (to allow the choker to be removed
if there is a problem removing the padlock or if subjected to excessive
load) they also allow the weave to mirror itself.

Nice work! Very Happy I got some heart padlocks from a site around here somewhere to do the same type of thing...I love the mirrored look on there! Very Happy

Thanks Smile

The poor thing was crying out for a leash, so I used 0.8mm Stainless Steel
to make a 3 foot leash with roughly the same ar (4.15mm ID)



The leash is detachable, the main trick is if you are not using the leash
have the base of the lock facing down, if you are using the leash have
the base of the lock facing up, so the leash can hang from the lowest part
of the 'U' part of the lock.

So this could start a whole new discussion on what the leash is for. All of a sudden the break away rings make more sense. Hhmmm ...

Thanks, originally the leash wasn't even part of the idea, I just don't like
the idea of something around the neck that can't be easily
removed/broken in an emergency, and I'm out of good magnetic clasps,
all the ones I've tried lately are weaker than I'd like.

I like it when ideas and designs seem to flow from the metal Smile
