For the kinds of chains I use . . . They don't have them at the hardware store, TSC, or Home Depot! Not even when I was using a 3214 Mac - for all they have is safety chain.

And instead of saying 3/8 low profile .050" 56DL, it has a code number like S56 and you have to look at the chain carefully to see what it actually is?

I find that additional "consumer code system" rather silly, as you need a decode list to know what chain really is in the package (or to inspect it carefully).

Two different designations on the same chain loops just can't be a good idea.
