Strengths:    Inexpensive. The screw in "backstop" locks the chain in place and gets the pin out EVERY time.

Weaknesses:    If you lose the "BACKSCREW" you're left with a crappy chain tool.

Bottom Line:   
Lifu makes some really smart tools. This is one of them. The tool did a MUCH better job than a Park Mini-Chain Brute for a 3rd of the price.

Maybe it won't stand up to shop abuse. But if I had a shop, I'd get the Pedros chain tool. Park really does rest too much on it's laurels. Time to redesign some tools.

Strengths:    Cheap. Well made.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
Six bucks for a tool that compares to a $20 tool and works just as well. Looks as percision made as Park. Maybe in the long run it won't be as durable as a Park tool, but if you only use the tool a few times a year I think it will be great. Bike shop use might wear it out faster than a Park Tool. So, for the home mechanic, it is just about perfect.
