Use Quick Links
#1
There is an alternative to pressing rivets in and out of your chain to install and remove it. It is called a "Quick Link". This can be installed instead of the pin. Remove the opposite pin and install the quick link, as tension is put on the chain the quick link will click into place. The pliers above are the quick link removal pliers. To remove the quick link simply squeeze the pins with the pliers and disassemble the link and remove the chain. The quick link is reusable so you can use it to remove the chain for cleaning also. Take a quick link with you while riding. If your chain breaks, just remove the bad link with your multi tool and pop in the quick link and you're down the road! Carry on in your tool kit in case your chain breaks. It can make for an easy roadside repair. See more at http://www.doityourselfbicyclerepair.com

Interesting item. There are several different types of quick links available. I prefer the type with a U shaped spring clip that locks the link in place. When using make sure the closed end is in the direction of rotation.

Hi George;

Do they have that style for derailleur equipped systems? If yes, who makes them?

Currently I use KMC chains and quick links.

I have used them for motorcycle chains. Not sure how many sizes are available.
