Re: Simpson Lawrence gypsy not matching chain
It sounds as though your previous chain was BBB. Are you absolutely positive it was G4?
The chains are very different (link length and links per foot, hence weight per foot) and the gypsy is not interchangeable. BBB is specifically manufactured as anchor chain, while G4 is not, though it is used as anchor chain by many.
