Master of the chain.

Master links have made our lives much easier in the world of bike maintenance, but that doesn't mean chains are completely hassle free. When caked with dirt and corrosion master links can be difficult to remove by hand as they were intended, so reach for the Park Tool Master Link Pliers. The MLP-1.2 Master Link Pliers are designed with specially sized jaws for fitting into a master link and are easy to use by squeezing together to open the link, or pulling the handles apart to close the link. The pliers are compatible with all chains from 5 through 12 speed that use a master link.

  • Pliers for easy chain maintenance
  • Works for 5-12 speed chains with masterlink
  • Enables easy chain breaking on rusty and dusty chains

Park Tools

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Park Tools #1 tools, quality product and will last a life time. If you are a wrench turner like myself. On par with Craftsman or Snap-On

Sturdy tool

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Does what it's meant to do and feel very high quality. Even though it's possible to undo a quick link without this tool, it's near impossible without the tool.

Solid build

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Looks good, does what it’s supposed to.

Breaks the a good way.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

You can break a chain with pliers but this is perfect to pop a quick link and swap chains or pull it off to clean it. Won't wear this tool out.

Master Link Pliers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great to have in the shop. They release and rejoin quick/master links very easily. For the price I feel they are right in line with a simple specialty tool should cost. I recommended them to any one that works on their own bikes. A chain breaker tool will work as well, but these make the job much easier. These work on chain sizes from 7-8 speed all why to down to narrow 12 speed chains. With a wife and two kids that mountain bike as well as myself, I am fixing a chain on a regular basis. I just wish I bought a pair of these sooner.

Stop using whatever you were using

Get this tool. Easily pop powerlinks, thank yourself for having done so.

For any tool box

    Now that Shimano has gone back to quicklinks (to join SRAM), this is a must have for any tool box. Sure, you could technically use some needle nose pliers, but these arent too pricey and do the job well.

    Must Have

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Must have tool for anyone doing bike builds. Handy to have on hand to remove chains for cleaning, waxing, replacing, etc.

    great tool!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    its got one job! .... and it does it well! Great to have in your workbench in your garage for working on your chain. You can pop the master link off and put it back on in a jiffy! you will be happy you got these pliers!

    A must have!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    One of the most convenient tools you'll own if you run a master link on your chain. Solid construction from Park Tool, built to last. Would recommend!

    love this tool

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I didn't have one of these for the longest time, and now that I do it makes everything so much easier. it can be used to pull a quick-link out, or to put a new quick-link in.

    Works perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I was tired of using needle nose pliers to open the master links, where I'd often times mar the link. These have one purpose, and they do it very well.

    Using master links on your chain?

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Then you need this ... as much as we like to say we can open and close master links with our bare hands, this tool makes it ever so much easier.
