    Great tool for any cyclist! A real time saver and life saver if you’ve repaired chains the old-fashioned way!, July 23, 2016

    This little helpful tool was sent to me as a promotion in exchange for an honest and detailed review. That being considered, I am still an avid cyclist and I have repaired dozens and dozens of bikes and have custom built my own 26″ mountain bike from the frame up. So naturally, this was a tool I wanted to add to my already vast collection of bike repair tools.

    To start, lets discuss the quality of the machining and the product itself. This tool is very small, which means it fits into a backpack or toolkit easily. In the world of cycling, this is key! The rubber grip is slim but enough to wrap 3 or 4 fingers fully around and get a good purchase. The machining of the threads is good and I didn’t see any burrs, however I will mention that the tolerances were fairly loose between the threaded hole and the screw, so there is some play in the actual screw that removes the pin from the chain. This shouldn’t be a problem, but depending on the chain, you may have to align the links more carefully to remove the pins. Overall, the tool looks well made to my inspection, and I think it should hold up to lots of abuse. I removed a half dozen pins with it already on varying chains and I see no faults in the manufacturing.

    Regarding the actual function, this tool is flawless! It takes little effort to get the chain to align quickly and a few turns later, you’ve popped the pin out of your chain with ease. I tried this tool with a standard Walmart replacement Bell chain, as well as a KMC Z-chain. I had no problems or difficulty with either one. I also had a piece of KMC chain that had a seized pin so I figured why not give it a shot. It actually got the pin out! It took a bit more effort and for a moment I thought the tool would fail but it didn’t! I was pleasantly surprised by the performance of this little tool!

    I think at this point it’s key to mention why the tool only got 4 stars instead of the seemingly more appropriate 5 stars. After all, everything I’ve said so far has been praise of this inexpensive little life-saver! However, knowing that I’m an avid cyclist and I’ve repaired more than my fair share of bikes, I overlooked one important thing. This tool was packaged well and and performed excellently, but it failed to come with any instructions, or even a picture to explain it’s use. I think if you’re like most Americans who own a simple Huffy mountain bike from Walmart, you will be pretty lost when you receive this in the mail. And yes, there are lots of videos and online resources to guide you, but I think the manufacturer should certainly include some sort of instructional pamphlet to guide inexperienced consumers. I’d consider myself a pretty experienced bicycle handyman and still, it took me a bit of tinkering to fully understand how the tool was intended to be used.

    The only actual negative about the tool is that contrary to the product description, it does not allow for some sort of speedy installation process of the pins back into the chain. The description says “Quickly and accurately remove and install chain pins”, and I would hate for some consumer to be misled by the product’s title and expect some sort of magical installation process using this tool. I imagine most of us use master-links at this point but regardless, there will come a time when you need to split a chain and put it back together without a master-link, and unfortunately, even with this tool, you will have to do it the hard way.

    Overall, if you’re a cyclist, or if your kids are constantly breaking their bike chains, this tool is a great addition to your toolset! I would highly recommend it to anyone who knows their way around a bike. It will definitely save you time and effort!

    I have installed 5 chains with this already. One chain was a heavy duty half link Chain and it didn’t give this chain breaker a hard time at all. Great buy I’ve made my money back on it already for sure.
