Date Reviewed: March 30, 2002

Strengths:    Works great, when it does, compact

Weaknesses:    I got a messed up one, so the threads pulled off of the spindle

Bottom Line:   
I think Park has a lifetime warrany, so I'll return it and get a new one. This is a great inexpensive chain tool. Don't buy those cheap $3 ones, the pins mushroom out and weaken the chain even more, and sometimes get stuck. Once again, a great tool from Park Tool, but I'm gonna have to take off for the inconvenence.

Strengths:    Small, easy to use, great backstop

Weaknesses:    Bar to turn doesn't provide THAT much leverage

Bottom Line:   
Great tool BUT, the little pin which pushes on the chain unscrewed from the tool and got lost in my toolbag - maybe due to vibration ? Of course, only found this out when I most needed the tool ......

Advice, buy this tool BUT use loctite to fix the pin in place

Strengths:    
Small, portable but rugged.


Bottom Line:   
Great tool--make sure you hit the chain rivet square...I missed one and broke the pin. Bought a replacement pin and this thing is still going strong. At the price, put one in your seatpack and another in your toolbox.

Bottom Line:   


This chain tool has to be one of the easiest I have ever used. The thing I like
about this is the backstop, which leaves the pin in, so reattaching with the
same pin is a snap. This way I can even reattach shimano chains without a new
starter pin. It's relatively small so I can take it with me on the trails, but big enough for the tough jobs at home. Overall a very good chain tool.
