How to connect two pieces of chain?

Thanks a LOT Woosh, that is exactly what I was looking for but never paid attention to “Mid Link” assuming that it will not pass through my windlass. And obviously “Connecting Link” won’t make it on the load side. Another idea is connecting chains by splicing short length of 3-strand nylon line, but splice will reduce somehow the strength + abrasion and rust rot that comes with the chain to line splice.

What kind of windlass do you have, mine is Lofrans Progress vertical windlass. Do you happen to know where can I find HT shackles?
