Many derailleur chains use a “master 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Arcadian Perfect for what it does.
After bodging open a quick link with some tiny needle nose pliers and a screwdriver, I decided getting the proper tool for the job might be in order.
Good price on crc, arrived quickly, does the job of getting the quick link on and off just fine. Feels solid and sturdy too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chappy Good price for a simple tool
Its basic but who needs more. Not too flimsy and works well for the speed links I'm using on our bikes these days on both road & mtb bikes

This is definetely one of those tools you think youll never need but after 20 minutes of getting nowhere with needle nosed pliers and other assorted implements, hands coated in scum, borrowed a friends pair of these and 10 seconds laters i was in business.
