    Using them in compound lifts, helps you train weaker areas of the lift. For example, if you have great leg driven bench that pops the bar of your chest easily, but you are weak at locking out, adding chains lets you overload the top of the lift as more chain comes off of the floor. It is similar to using bands in this way. Now if you were weak getting the bar off you or chest, but great at locking out, chains wouldn't be too helpful. You would want to supplement things like pin presses to strengthen the bottom of the lift.

    They do look cool but they are useful too. They can be draped over your shoulders and that makes the load easy to carry.

    Depends what you use them for but I used to use them for weighted pull ups and I found them to be pretty effective.

    it helps change the weight of the bar while in motion up and down

    none of the gyms i have seen lately have them available though, obviously they don't want you messing up the floor
