Have to have tool

Easy to use. Good price. If you don't have you need one. Makes chain installation and sizing a breeze.

Fine for pressing, but.......

Got this to press, install , a DID VX2 chain with rivit style masterlink.
Press part of the tool worked excellent! Tool seemed to be good quality.
Then i went to rivit the hollow nose masterlink.
Ive read about the pins sheading, so i was very carefull and worked slow.
First one went fine, then part way into rivit #2.......CRACK!
Awwww! Pulled the tool off expecting the pin to be broken, but it was fine.
The anvil part had cracked! And it had also allowed the masterlink pin to be pushed back a bit. Kinda like a chain breaker. And, YES i had the rivit pin in it, NOT the chain breaker pin.
And i see the anvil part is not sold seperatly like the pins are.
The anvil was a cast part, not forged which seemed kinda cheesy.
This would be good for smaller or more light duty chains, but not for heavy duty stuff.
Ordered the better rated BPR tool and another masterlink to try again.
Disapointed with this one.

MP Chain breaker/press/rivet tool

Great tool ...never had any problems with any of the M/P product line.I had this tool before and it always worked well unfortunately my track side tool box was stolen( not at the track but at a Denny's I stopped at to grab something to eat ...stole my boots out of the back of truck ,too) and this is one item of many that needed replacement.

Felt like quality stuff

I had bought this to use on my first chain replacement and I am glad I did, it worked great. there seems to be a long life in this product if taken care of properly. I even think that I might be able to combine this with other MP accessories to broaden the use of this tool.

Easy to Use

I bought this in lieu of paying the local shop an hour of labor to change my chain. I checked a couple YouTube vid's to make sure I understood it's use and presto chang-o! It worked great!

Good Quality

Instructions come with the tool on how to use it which was surprising to me. Followed the instructions and had no issues and the tool worked like it was suppose to.

Tool works amazing, easy to use, durable and reliable to get the job done. Only thing that would be nice is a hard shell case.

Does the job

Wouldn't be able to replace a chain without it. Figuring out how to use the tool can be fiddly at first, but it's not too hard to figure out.

1. Always grind the head of the pin off before you try to push it out with this tool.
2. Make sure you use the correct pin to press the pin through - I made the mistake of using the riveting pin and snapped it off (a plus is that replacement parts are available!).
3. For an o-ring chain - don't press the plate too far! Some chains come with a little metal pieces that go between the plates to use as a guide, some don't. Only press until you are even with the rest of the links or your o-rings will fail quickly. Once you've gone to far you can't un-do it.

Need more tools

As other reviews have stated this tool can not be used by itself. You will need a box end wrench at a minimum to break.press, or rivet. Seems very overpriced for what it is. I was able to do the job with the tool and a box wrench. Could not have completed the job with the tool only.

Ok chain riverter.

I have this tool and it works good for riveting chains and pressing the plates on. But as a breaker it doesn't do well... The pin used to push out the old links sheared on me. Thankfully I had cheapy harbor freight chain breaker that did the job fine. I feel better riveting chains on with this tool than the jerry-rigged harbor freight tool. I would not recommend using this as a breaker tool though. Not durable enough in my opinion.

What's the alternative?

While changing a chain is relatively simple, it is not necessarily easy. This tool is a start though it is overpriced (it’s steel) and overrated, or under designed. In order to use this tool one needs three more tools: a box end wrench, a socket, and a ratchet. Do yourself a favor and forget their suggestion of using a screwdriver as a handle. Then, in order to do the job properly you will need two more things--calipers and the specification for your particular connecting link rivet flair. Back to the tool. Do follow their suggestion (or common sense) of lubricating the threads and mating surfaces, and ESPECIALLY of grinding (or filing) the head of the pin flush before attempting to push it out. Finally proceed with care. If you press the plates too close together or flair the rivet pin too much, you can’t very well un-press or un-flair it now can you?! Good luck.

Q: How do I get a replacement piece, the part that pushes the pin through the link broke right at the spot where it goes from thick to thin.?

Just received the part yesterday and went to break my chain, had evertyhing alaigned and tightened properly even grinned the pin before. One of the first turns the part broke before any real tension. Based on the reviews I am assuming that part was defective. Please let me know how to get a replacement

A: That is the main reason i bought this item, it will work on 520 chains and push the pin all the way through. it works on 0-ring chains as well.

A: It broke a 520 chain for me, but I did first grind the pin down on the side I was going to push it through from to avoid any unnecessary work on the tool. I believe that if you cant grind it down it would still work fine, I just haven't tried that yet.
