I am .. um.. not used to working with chain. I don't quite know how to get the chain attached to the d-rings. :( I thought I would just twist the open ends apart, but I have only one pair of pliers (what? I could have sworn I had two.) and the chain appears...erm... stronger then me. I DO have bolt cutters. Worst comes to worst, I will just snip off a little bit of one end (at the join of a link) so I can just force the d-ring through the gap.

Chains and Drings? Sounds kinky..make sure to have a safe word.

I'm guessing the end of the pliers is too big to stick in the link of the chain and force the ends apart? If they aren't needlenose, or the chain is super strong, this likely won't work, but if it isn't, it might.

Also, strong kitchen tongs can be used as pliers to hold one side of the link in a pinch (pun not intended) if you have any.

Depending on the chain, I'd recommend jump or split rings from Hobby Lobby (in the jewelry section) to connect the D-rings and chain. Otherwise, I can probably do it if you're willing to wait until tomorrow. I have two pairs of chain nose pliers (smaller than needlenose) just for that sort of thing.

These are majorly big links, though... my advice is to bully ryltar into it. :)
