English translation:jam/lock up
Explanation:
Here, "zusetzen" is meant in the colloquial term of "Dicht machen,
steckenbleiben" and prob. should be translated as such, because it seems that the chains . . . jam up (acc. to Muret-Sanders-eine Maschine etc. verklemmen, festsitzen, einklemmen, blockieren), also
lock up (blockieren) would work.
