SRAM Powerlink Connector

Every chain is only as strong as its weakest link - traditionally, the connecting link. In contrast, the PowerLink™ connection is just as strong and durable as every other link in the chain. It can be opened and closed as may times as you want without using any tools.

Features:

  • PowerLink means no weak links.
  • NB: 2 pieces (2 parts of one chain link) and (3 parts of one chain link)
  • IMPORTANT: The 7,8,and 9 speed links have 2 sides and 1 spacer. 10sp & 11sp Links are POWERLOCK, they fit together but then are not designed to come apart again.

  • Colour: Grey, Gold, Silver
  • Option: 7 Speed - 3 Pack, 9 Speed - 3 Pack, 8 Speed - 3 Pack
  • Speed: 7 Speed, 9 Speed, 8 Speed

Rated 5 out of 5 by essential I carry one pair of these around every cycle! Great product 07 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lo que necesitaba Buena relacion calidad/precio. Lo que necesitaba para una cadena de 8 velocidades 29 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Отличный замок для цепи. Приобрел данные замки для 7-скоростной цепи Shimano Altus HG50. Установились без проблем. В первый раз замок соединился-разъединился довольно туго, но потом стал легко разбираться-собираться руками. Катаю сезон в три цепи, на каждой свой замок. Прошел порядка 4000 км. Износа на пинах замков нет. Очень удобная вещь, если Вы меняете цепи по кругу. 25 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better deal than in LBS With a powerlink you know what you are getting so it's all about getting best value for money. Compared to the extortionate prices for 1 powerLOCK (not powerlink) in an LBS, this is the best value for money. 14 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome little things, even work on non SRAM chains These are as strong as a chain itself, I've never had one break or come apart. Included as standard on new SRAM chains. The SRAM PowerLinks make removing a chain really easy which is essential for proper cleaning. I would recommend a pair of chain link pliers because is they do get stiff (your not cleaning your chain often enough!) they will be very difficult to remove. The BBB ones are also closers as well. Also, bend a piece of coat hanger wire to make hooks on the end of a length of about 6 links and use it to hold the chain tension while you put the Powerlink on in between (where it's slack) as it's much easier than trying to hold tension on the chain and try to put it together at the same time. Can also be used to fix a broken chain as a temporary measure. 13 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple piece of kit that works Simple piece of kit that works. The powerlink connects the chain and is as reliable as any other link in the chain. Easy to put together and break the chain as required 04 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very reliable method of joining chain Admittedly the 8 speed version is TIGHT to get on. I bought one to join new chain on my son's 8 speed road bike and to be honest it was a bit of a task. I've been spoilt having used the 9 speed PowerLink on my bike which can easily be fitted and removed by hand just by pinching and sliding apart, but the 8 speed can be fitted the same way I used to fit 7 speed versions on old MTBs. (All Shimano chains). With no specialist tools, (of course having set the correct length with link extractor) fit the link loosely in at the join on the lower section of chain, then carefully reverse the cranks so that the link is at the upper section. Ensuring that the link is correctly aligned and positioned (a small cable tie an be used to keep it snug) and that a low gear is selected, apply both brakes and put pressure on the pedals in the drive direction: 'CLICK' the PowerLink should lock in place. OK, you won't get it off without tools, but IMO it's a much less frustrating and more reliable method than trying to insert the supplied pin and if fitted correctly will outlive the chain itself. (I always found that using the pin link resulted in that particular link being less smooth than the others and prone to fail prematurely) I don't remove chains to clean them: as long as they're cleaned regularly with a quality degreaser and kit, there's just no need, so the lack of ability to conveniently un-link a chain via the PowerLink isn't an issue. I'd recommend carrying a spare PowerLink and link extractor in your kit on rides. If your chain fails, pop out the offending link pin pin and fit the PowerLink as described above and you'll at least make it home, or even carry on eating up the miles! As a family we have MTBs and road bikes with various gearing / chain sizes and each one has a relevant sized PowerLink in the ride spares. As essential and easy to carry as anything else. 30 August 2014

Answer: 
Probably. Have never tried it that way round but have fitted 9 speed shimano links to a 10 speed sram chain and it was fine for months. Not just sitting in the shed either mind, lasted as long as the rest of the chain with no issues. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
If you have the spare links you removed when you shortened your chain then you can use 2 pairs of power links to put some of the spare links into the chain. You Cannot add several powerlinks in a row.

I made the same mistake as you and had to reinsert a section of chain, I subsequently broke my chain in a different place, I've been riding with 3 power links in my chain for over a year with no issues.

The power links are a bit difficult to fit, you'll need a link tool or at least a point nosed pliers.

Answer: 
Technically you could use these to lengthen a chain, but it would be better to get a new chain, especially if your chain is slightly old, it will have stretched, increasing the likelihood of miss shifting a poor alignment where the new links are.

Answer: 
I actually run my chain with two of these, not because I made it too short but because I broke it twice.. I've been using it for several months and it's ok (though too short: I''m just waiting for the whole drive system to wear out and replace it).
I think these guys are pretty sturdy and reliable, but it really depends on how you use your bike and how many of these you'll end up using: at the end of the day, they're way thinner than the original thing.

Answer: 
Yes, you can put an SRAM link on a Clarks Chain (or vice versa), I've done it, and it worked fine, as long as the link and chain are both for the same speed bike. (i.e. both 10 speed or both 9 speed, etc).
