I really wanted to like these, and they are as good as most plastic tire levers. I expected more from them, and they did not deliver the extra. they don't nest together as conveniently as I would like for taking them anywhere, and they weigh a little more than I would like. The plier configuration feels flimsy, but they have a spot in my "away" bag even if they won't be taken out on the bike.
I bought this after a friendï¿½s chain became hopelessly stuck behind the small chainring on his bike. We had to call someone to bring a chain breaker to free the chain and continue our ride. I have not had to use it yet. But better safe than sorry.
Heavy duty tire levers that should last a long time and work well. The quick link aspect needs a little more refining. They fit together a little bit sloppily and don't quite release the chain link all the way. I had to stretch over to the next link, which made it a little bit awkward. However I was able to get it to work. Just not as intended.
This is a handy tool for undoing quick-connector links if you want to remove your chain for cleaninglube and reuse. It also does double duty with two very sturdy tire levers, the plastic is a lot denser than you'll find on cheaper levers.
Have used KMC, SRAM and shimano dura ace chains, MTB and Road, works excatly like it says, makes popping a quick-link off and on simple and fast. After I wore out a KMC chain way too quickly (less than 1,000 miles...), went back to shimnano dura-ace and it works great on these too. Very hard plastic or nylon (ABS?) with what feels like a steel core, won't bend or break! Works great as tire levers too! Very happy with this, saw a friend use their's and knew I had to get one. BTW, only place I could find this was here at WB.
Little on the thicker then I expected.
Takes up space in the saddlebag. But it double as the tire leavers so, it makes up for it. Havent had chance to use it on the road yet.
