Keep that chain clean!

Spring for the Pedro's USA Chain Keeper and say goodbye to flaccid chains. The Chain Keeper mounts in your rear drop out, keeping tension on the chain so you can stroke, pull, grease, and clean your chain without worrying about it falling or swinging around. The quick release lever comes in handy for those quickie sessions.

Why didn't I get this years ago?

This is so easy to use, and so obviously useful, I'm stunned that it took me so long to get one. The only caveat, mentioned in other reviews here, is you need to hang onto it when you release it, as the chain tension WILL shoot it across the room or pits!

Awfully nice to be able to clean and lube the chain without mucking up the rear wheel or cassette. If you are even so much as considering this, stop, just go ahead and buy it. Short money, well spent.

Responded on

Update: The two plastic sides have decided to come apart too easily. They now separate as I'm installing this in the rear drop-out. Annoying. However, the two sides are keyed, so they go right back together, and there are holes, thru which I'll just stick a couple of machine screws, which should solve this minor annoyance pretty easily.

Doesn't last forever...but CLOSE

I'm still giving this 5 stars. I have had mine for over ten years, and people always ask, "Hey, where'd you get that?" It finally gave out. I tried gluing it, and that lasted for a few uses, but never quite the same. I'm not complaining at all. I have no problem replacing. It's one of the most used tools in my collection. Probabaly because if you keep your bike clean your more intuned to what is going on with your ride...which leads to less significant maintenance later. A clean drivetrain is a happy one!

Does exactly what it is supposed to do with ease...nothing bad to say about it.

Nice gadget

This is a nice little gadget to have if you wash, lube, or service your bike with the wheels off. It is also very helpful to keep tension on the chain if you transport your bike with the wheels off say in your car or in a cycling specific case.

I don't like getting cleaner and lubes splashed on my wheels and spokes when washing and lubing my bike but still need to turn the cranks over for your chain cleaner to work this gadget is the answer.

One added "feature" to this is that if you don't hold it as you release the QR it will slingshot across the room. Pretty embarrassing way to prove to everybody in the pits that you are a Cat 5 roadie.

Other that what I mentioned above I don’t believe this baby has any other purpose.

Worth the $10

I didn't add this to my toolbox for a long time because it seemed unnecessary, but it sure is a nice little thing to have. You pop it into the dropout and place your chain in there and it allows you to clean the bike, adjust derailuers, etc. without having a dirty chain slapping all over the right rear chainstay. You can turn the cranks forward and backwards with this in and your chain won't get stuck. Since it is only $10 and one will last you forever, go ahead and buy.
