How do I open Quick Links?
Disconnect Type 1. To disconnect this type of link, place one jaw of your pliers on the chain pin, and the other jaw on the open end of the clip. Then squeeze your pliers until the clip pops off. Then you can remove the outer plate and slide out the rest of the link.
How do I know my bike chain size?
Begin by counting the number of teeth on the largest front sprocket and largest rear. These numbers are often printed right on the sprockets and cogs. Next, measure the distance between the middle of the crank bolt to the rear axle. This is also the chain stay length.
Do all bike chains have a master link? Nope, not all chains have master links. If your bicycle has derailleurs, it means it’s unlikely that your bike’s chain will have a master link.
Are chain Quick Links reusable?
The quick link is designed for use with 11-speed chains and is, according to Shimano, not reusable. Quick links are dead easy to install. Place the quick link into the chain gap, align and snap together – usually done by applying pressure through the cranks.
If you have a standard chain with no master link: Seat the chain in the chain tool, with the pin of the chain tool aligned with a pin in the chain. Turn the handle of the chain tool until you push the pin out far enough that you can break the chain.

A chain is made up of a series of interlinking and alternating wide and narrow plates. A quick link works by replacing one “outer” chain link with a pair of slotted interlocking outer plates that feature permanently set pins. The force applied to a chain pulls these two opposing links into a closed position.
