An ancient Chinese tradition is to fasten a lock on a never-ending chain and to throw away the key. According to the custom, as long as the lock remains on the chain, so too will your love be preserved. In modern times, couples have their names or initials engraved onto the lock to add a personal touch.
Common never ending chains include chains on many bridges. Please see below as an example picture of locks on a bridge.
