chris Can't be without a spare!
A Superb!
Mr Young Such a small item but has saved me mid ride a few times. Must have item particularly on long rides away from home or nearby shops.
Mr Bullivant Quick delivery, nicely packaged
Mr Fielding Super useful link which works really well. Great product, price and service from Merlin as always.
Mr topping Essential kit, ordered 5, always good to have to avoid the dreaded phone call to the wife.
James Works with Campagnolo 11 Speed Chains, makes fitting the chain super easy, also worth carrying for emergencies.
Mr Wright Never had an issue with KMC, top quality kit and always a good price.
SteveR Always good to have a spare with you. Great price at Merlin
IKD Reusable quick link. Makes removing & refitting chain for proper deep cleaning and rewaxing a doddle.
Richard Keeping for an emergency. Hopefully won’t need. Good price.
John D Best missing link our there and good value from Merlin. Taped to my cables for emergency.
Michael Simple, cheap, life-saving.
Mr Prince A really good piece of kit for that chain emergency or maintenance
Michael Don't leave home without any.
Mr Schollum Always handy to carry some spares
Mr burgess works with shimano 11 speed chain - no issues
OperaLover Did it's job with a Campy chain
bryan I carry a couple of these links and a chain tool every ride to get me home if the worst happens, a doddle to use and fairly inexpensive.. Sometimes need to stomp on the pedals to lock the link on properly on first use, but I find after a few hundred miles it loosens up and can be removed/installed by hand
Mr Scott A good quality product and was easy fitted. I now keep 1 with my bike bag just in case I get into trouble while out on the bike.
Mr Huynh Simple quick link, hasn't failed yet. I've also reused it a few times and will try to push my luck with a few more. Currently 3,000 miles on my current one.
Mr Pitchko They work with Campy
Mr Laurence As usual much too expensive for what it is but also necessary for ease of use. Why Shimano still use pins is beyond me!!
Mr Workman Purchased as a spare to take out on the trail (to replace a used spare Iv'e been carrying about), having previously suffered a broken chain, the spare I had with me then saved the day.
stephen Fitted easily to chorus chain, works perfectly.
Robin An excellent 11 sp link that I have been using for several years. Although the link is sold as single use, I have generally continued to use a new link after several chain removals for cleaning and when changing a chain so maybe only one additional missing link to cover the life of a chain. This has never caused a problem but I do use chain pliers for removal and reconnection which may reduce stress on the link.
Mr HOUEIX I use always this item, easy and safe
Luca Does the job. Essential spare for my saddle bag.
Mr Green Nice to have in case of a chain breakage.
BCR Easiest way to link campy chains.
Nick Lightweight quick and easy to use
Tristan Essential spares for my rides and good quality from KMC.
Mr Parker Good price and helped make chain replacement an easier task.
Mr Brookes Perfect little device. Sorts all chain related issues.
Ant Guy Have never had to use, but it's KMC as per my chains so expect no issues should I ever be in need.
Mr Prince A good quality item that does the job extremely well
Cycling superhero Great quality and lasts long!
Jimmy Ng Useful item for linking your campag chain. Came in good condition.
Mr Davis These save a lot of time when replacing chains, or removing them for cleaning. I've found that they can be re-used several times, with no problems so far.
Jim As expected , always seem to have an issue getting them interlocked , but the quality and performance are always there !
Mr Taylor The missing link is a far better option than using a pin. It got me out of a problem.
David Always good to keep an extra in your pouch.
Freddie I personally use it more than once.
Kevin Works great with my Wipperman chain! I would buy again
andrew Great links, have used them for a while with no hassle, have even reused them though they say not to. Cheapest I could find and great quality
Graham Todd Great idea a link that you can open and close without the need for any tools. Makes taking the chain off for cleaning so much easier. Easy to fit. I would thoroughly recommend this product.
Mr Whitby Works perfectly with a Campag chain. Cheapest I could find.
Chris I use these for Shimano chains instead of the connecting pins they come with.
Bill Great addition to the saddle bag incase of the chain snapping. Clicks together very easily and hassle free
Mark E Nice and easy to use!
Mad Matt Neat solution that avoids the expensive Campag chain breaker tool. Bargain! Arrived next working day as promised.
David These are a tight fit, no chance of breaking open on the road. Using one with my Shimano chain and I completely trust it.
John Trouble free and quick
David Brand Wouldn't install a chain without one of these. Makes it easy to remove the chain to clean or maintain the bike. This new one was quite difficult to get to engage and to remove, but works perfectly.
Mr D Does the job, better than the SRAM alternative that wears out quicker than the chain.
Mr Stone Is what it is, easy to install and remove for chain cleaning.
Mr Ami I started using these links as a much easier and stronger alternative to Shimano's connecting pin. The pin was always the weakest part of the chain and after breaking a couple of chains at the pin these links solved the problem. I even keep one in my bike bag so I never get stranded a long way from home.
Mr Gen Ka Usual quality from KMC. Every rider should have it. Just in case...
Mr Vink Easy to use and never let me down on the road
Andy Grabbed a few extras for trailside repairs. Quality looks good.
Casey Easiest way to to join a new chain.
Jersey socks Great value links, so easy to use with right equipment
Roman Get out of jail card for on road issues
mark Would never leave home without these ...
David Bought as a spare, these things just work. Simple to install and remove.
Alan Excellent links, works great. I can't see or determine a difference between these and the expensive Shimano quick links. Therefore, price rules and Merlin Cycles have the best price on the planet for this product. I live in Colorado, USA.
Lai Meng A KMC quick link that is easy. Easy to use and so convenient to connect up my new chain.
Robert Easy to use, cheap & reliable.
Mr Woodhead Works fine on a 11 speed Shimano chain, shifting is normal and quiet. Can be closed easily by pulling the chain with your hands, needs the tool to split it. A much cheaper option to the Wipperman if you don't need tool free.
dj So much easier than faffing with a very expensive campag chain tool. Fits chorus chain perfectly. I know that I am risking certain death by ignoring campag instructions, but I can live with that
neville I'm obsessed apparently ( so my wife says) with cleaning my chain and transmission. The only way for me is the old fashioned way, removal and washing in a bath of cleaner. The missing link is perfect, and I do re-use them. Get two, one for your toolkit !
Mr Arslan I used it Shimano Ultegra 11 speed chain with R8000 system. Doesn`t impact any problem to system and chain. Piece together the 2 piece link, and pull either side of chain apart. It will connect with click.
Paul, Sydney Australia Easy and convenient to use. A good product.
Mr wright Reliable link
Zeke Love the missing link. Much easier than dealing with pins. Would recommend the chain pliers to remove.
Mr Coletti They work great, easy on and off with the KMC tools. They help to keep my chains clean.
DIEGO Good reusable link for 11s chains. Will never again use the old school chain pins.
Mr Hicks No issues when used to reconnect a Shimano HG701-11 chain, works flawlessly.
baay77 Excellent useful product! Great for that quick fix at the roadside
Mr McCarthy Easy to use and quick/simple to undo with the correct tooling. This is now my go-to chain more messing with pins.
Memduh What can I say, must have product, it compatible with shimano and Sram chains, its lot cheaper than the shimano link and I never had any issues with any kmc missing links in the past, hopefully this would not change.
Mel Use this instead of Shimano pin. Easy to fit.
Mike Fantastic! Don't know how I managed without this before. No fitting instructions but nothing that I couldn't find on-line. Great price with a discount.
elvis Easy to fit and carry an extra one or two for that horrible moment your chain goes pop. You still need to carry a chain tool to take off the busted link. Much better than old fashioned pins.
George I lost one of the missing link parts on my KMC X11 chain when cleaning it. These fit and do the job perfectly. Fast free delivery.
Mr Weddell I fitted these to a Shimano chain as they were much cheaper than the Shimano quick links. They were easy to fit and have had no issues so far.
russell Great part, never failed in use
Adam Works great on KMC and shimano chains. Always like to keep one with me on rides in case of a broken chain.
Ross One of the best get-out-of-jail-free (well, very cheaply) products you can get. Bought for a KMC 11 speed but it fits most manufacturers chains - snaps shut easily with a quick stand on the pedals, and off you go again. I bought spares as they are so cheap and I had donated my last one to an experienced rider who didn't know you could fit such a product. A must-have - probably the smallest, cheapest but most important spare you should carry.
Lord Fletcher Good solid link compatible with Shimano 11 speed
Douglas This is just what you need if your chain snaps I hope never to use it but if I do then I have got one, in the bag for the trail.
Lorelay facil de instalar duradera
Craig Missing link fitted to 11sp chain quickly & easily. Very happy with this product & service.
Mr Cheuk Lun Essential parts if you need disassemble your chain and clean carefully
Bikemadevs Bought this to connect a Campagnolo chain without the need for a Campagnolo chain tool. You will need a pair of chain pliers to loosen it but these are pretty common and cheap tools compared to the Campagnolo chain tool. It also recommends using a specific tool to 'connect' the link but I have found a few times that just tensioning the chain with the pedals is enough for the link to snap into place. Single use link so buy a few!
James Certainly more convenient than installing a pin, especially in the event of a broken chain on the road.
Michael Good to have on hand for a repair or quickly installing a new chain, since they work with several brands including Shimano. Merlin's price was very reasonable. Standard shipping to Canada took about 2 weeks.
Mr christie One of those things that are so small but can make a huge impact if things go wrong on a ride. Easy to fit and last as long as a chain does
Marty Works well and makes cleaning the drivetrain a breeze
weston Worth their weight in Gold, always have a few of these handy, can be a life saver, especially with thinner 11 speed chains
Mr gott After reviewing various websites for these links and getting conflicting reports as to whether they fitted a Shimano chain, I found these on Merlin and they confirmed the compatibility with Shimano. Items arrived very promptly and were exactly as described - and they fit!
Wishitwasallflat Well they work fine but as they are non-reusable they are an expensive pain compared to the old 10 speed version. Nothing to do with Merlin though good price from them and fast delivery as always - KMC are responsible.
A Teo Bought a few of these to keep at home and in my saddle bag. Found them very useful when a chain broke during a ride.
