Pros

They are simple and convenient, strong and reliable, and perform flawlessly. They make life easier for mechanics and non-mechanics. They are often a better value than the lower priced chains with flat sided link plates and buying the ml separately.

They are a bit hard to unhook, but do you really want them to come off easily? Little tight getting to click in, but once seated, working well.

It's fiddly but can be done. The cardboard package provides all the instructions needed for installing and removing the missing link. It goes on super easy then stiffens to the point pliers are needed to remove.

Kmc. The missing links are easy to attach. They are awesome.

Item is exactly as described, and works as it should. Used this on a shamano chain for an 8 speed cassette. The links work perfectly, be sure to order the right speed.



Cons

It makes an extra clunky sound when it goes around the chain ring or through the jockey wheels on the derailleur. It squeezes the chain links surrounding the quick link, causing that length of chain to become extremely stiff.

Good quality does what it's supposed to


I'm going to ride the shimano chain till it dies, then i'll replace it with the kmc z51 i bought with this pack of links.


Over 5000 miles on kmc chains and never a problem with the missing link.

Price


Never have any issues with them and, for the price, you cannot beat it.

Packaging/appearance


Units appear to be of excellent quality and have good packaging.

Competitiveness


Hint: you can use a small nail punch and a decent hammer to get the pins out without spending good money on a one-time-use non-...  Read More

These work great with my SRAM PC-870 chain at a fraction of the cost of the SRAM quick disconnect links sold one at a time... recommended

    If you're putting on a new chain or if you just have a bent or stiff link in the one that's already on your bike, this is a cheap way to get it fixed.

    I don't like risking my day, 20 miles from home, with a cheap and broken chain.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    It took me about 15 minutes of wrangling to get this master link on.

    I should have just paid more and got the wippermanns.

    I am therefore removing my 3* rating.

    Sometimes those sram links for wahtever reason are hard if not impossible to use.

    S: 9 speed links won't fit to your 7 or 8 speed chain.
