Why "short" and "regular" link Transport Chain?

The most economical Grade 70 chain comes in what is called NACM* Standard or Regular Link. This refers to the inside length of each individual link which is longer and is suitable for most applications.

But some customers specifically want ASTM* Short Link chain, which we now offer in 1/4", 5/16" and 3/8" chain sizes. The short link pattern makes a more flexible, easy to handle chain, grab hooks seem to stay in place better and there is less chance of damaging the chain link when tightening over sharp corners. Since there are more links per foot, short link chain is more expensive.
