I saw someone recommend these on YouTube and nothing would do but I have them immediately. The silver bit in the middle is a magnet. It holds the links in place and holds the pliers closed.
I have had the experience of breaking a chain link and walking several kilometers as a result. This will be good to have in the bag on upcoming longer rides, and it’s much lighter and more compact than my dedicated chain link tool.
(Anyone else think that there’s a not-so-missing link between Intel and KMC?)
