Yes it means 3/8 High Tensile.

That said, David's suggestion about replacing the gipsy at the same time
that the chain is replaced is sound. On close inspection, you will probably
find that the slot in the gipsy hub for the gipsy key somewhat
enlarged...time to replace it, or have it repaired.

BTW, I spell it gipsy because that is how Lofrans spells it in their
English language printed matter...I noticed everyone else using the palm
reader I wonder which is correct...I only know one person who
can solve this dilemma...David, where are you?

Good luck.
