Park MLP-1 Master Link Pliers Many derailer chains, especially our favorite SRAM brand, use a "master link" (SRAM calls it a "Power Link") that allows the chain to be installed and removed by hand. While this type of masterlink doesn't require a traditional chain tool, over time, dirt and corrosion can make it difficult to separate by hand. MLP-1 Master Link Pliers make removal and replacement of these masterlinks quick and effortless. Simply insert the specially sized jaws into the masterlink and squeeze the handles.
This small chain tool goes anywhere and actually performs like a shop quality tool. The fine thread, special "V"-shaped handle, and super strong replaceable pin make chain removal and installation a breeze. The CT-5 works on any derailer chain (including Hyperglide®) and has a "shelf" for loosening tight links. At only 77 grams, it1s the perfect take-along chain tool. Works great on 9 speed chains as well.
To prevent poor shifting and uneven drivetrain wear, most manufacturers recommend chain replacement at or before 1% stretch. Now you can quickly and accurately determine the wear and stretch of any chain with Park's Chain Checker. Simply insert the Chain Checker’s pins into 2 links, press the swingarm gauge tight, and then check the gauge window for an accurate reading!
The ultimate. Along with superior strength and durability, the CT-3.2 features a handy "loosening shelf" to remedy stiff links after reassembly. The fine thread and comfortable size enable easy removal of even the toughest chain pins. Like all Park Tool Chain Tools, it's easy to use and built to last. NOTE: The "sliding shelf" is supposed to be free floating. Do not try to tighten it!" Works great on 5 to 11 speed (not Campy 11) chains.
