X-Ring Chain Question...

Recommended Posts

OK, probably a stupid question, but the X-Ring chain that I just bought doesn't appear to have a seat clip, or the grooves that the seat clip slots into...

Also, the connecting link plate doesn't fit the pin heads.

My question is, do I need a special tool to fit the connecting link over the pin heads?

It seems that you have a 'press fit' link. You need a special tool to press the link plate onto the pins, then to 'peen' the pin ends over the plate.

See if you can get a clip-type link for the chain.

Buy two so you have an extra, also Motion Pro make a tool to hold the plates together against the rings while you install the clip.

Don't feel bad, I got caught off guard by the same chain. I have the clip style link in my toolbox now for when I need to remove the chain.:excuseme:
