Vex Chain

Is there any way on the vex chain from radio shack to shorten the length of chain given into smaller segments.

Yes, each link can be considered a master link. Thus, you can break apart any link in the chain, shorten or lengthen the chain by a minimum of one link, and then snap the chain back together again. Each link has two posts on one end and two holes on the other end. To break apart a link, simply lift the end of a link with a hole on it off the adjacent link’s post.
