Of the three chain repair tools shown, only one of them works. The first tool takes chains apart and puts them together real well but has no provision for adjusting the pin tension after putting a link back together.

The second tool is maybe for older chains. The problem is that the pin for taking the chain apart, is too large for the modern day bike chains.

The third tool is a marvel and works really well. Its operation will be shown in detail.


For demonstration, a small chain of links will be used as shown in this photo. This chain repair procedure works equally well on a chain still on the bike.

A chain link consists of two pieces, as shown in this photo. If you want to lengthen or shorten a chain for instance, this is the smallest allowable increment. This is important to note as if you are upgrading to a new chain or replacing an old chain, the new chain has to have exactly the same number of links as the old chain, otherwise the rear derailleur may be stressed beyond its capacity to adjust the chain tension tothe shifting task at hand.

For instance, if the chain is too short, the rear derailleur may be broken by the tension of the chain being too tight. If the chain is too long, then the chain will bang up and down on the wheel support brace even possibly making it impossible to switch gears.
