help moving a chain assembly...

Hello,

 

     i'm having trouble creating a chain assembly that will move properly. Each link is mated with an adjacent link by the pin. Each link has a point that is mated to a path. While moving the chain by clicking and dragging, som issues come up. Besides being frustratingly slow, some of the links in the chain have the tendency to unexpectedly flip 180 degrees. While it technically satifsifes the mate, it obviously makes no sense in real life.

 

Please see attached files and try to move the chain around the path. Perhaps additional mates are needed, or is there a better way to create a movable chain altogether??
