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.
