Weight: 90g / Black or silver / Hardened pin
Chain tools formed into multi-tools are all very well, but this stand-alone unit has bigger handles so it is easier to use, especially if you are weak-wristed or have a corroded chain. It’s also dirt-cheap and, when combined with a basic Allen set, is all you need for most repairs. It has the secondary gate for loosening stiff links and, while the pin is pressed in wonky, this didn’t really affect performance. An essential item if you’re looking to build a tool kit on a budget.
