Maybe a bit overpriced for what it is but Merlin offer the best price around so cant argue with that :) Does the job and if you are extending/fixing or decreasing chain length then this is required as a standard pin will just cause the chain to snap a few pedals down the trail! Which isn't great :)
Bought as a spare, have worked well in the past, just take time to install it right and you shouldn't have any problems.
Bit pricey for what it is but less fiddly than "missing link"
Light but very strong. Did exactly what I needed it to.
Not much to say. Chain connection pins. They do what they are supposed to. Some people prefer the quick links. They certainly do have their advantages (namely, no need for tools as long as your chain is the right length) but I like the pins. I must have become old school somewhere down the road, I guess. They were a little bit pricy. Most other vendors offer dicounts on a bag of 5 or more but I was in need of some of these and got a good price on the more expensive parts of my order so all is good.
These are a must have in the tool box! I think they should cost less though.
Easy to fit, you can never have to many of them in your spare box
These do what they say and very well, just remember to get the right ones, ie. ten speed for ten speed, which I did this time !
There is nothing particularly wrong with this product, but I finally realised why the Sram Powerlink is such a great invention, as I struggled to get the pin straight in the chain link. Shimano chains are high quality but the linkage system seems a bit agricultural compared to KMC and Sram's take. But if you you want to stick with tradition, these do the job.
After using a few of these on different chains I find them as easy as joining links.
Good quality and consistent manufacturing tolerances

Another Shimano product that works perfectly. These things pop on in 20 seconds with a decent chain tool and snapping off the surplus is a breeze too. I've even tapped one in with a large pebble - the chamfered edge helps. Could be cheaper but you don't tend to use them very often. All in all if you prefer not to use a SRAM powerlink and want a more invisible join these do the job and do it well. TIP: if your new link seems 'stiff' you've pushed the pin too far through so just ease back the other way to free it off.
errm...its a chain pin and its like sat in my saddle pack...and finger crossed i'll never use it!
Just works! No fuss for fitting chain at home. Cheap and cheerful...
Not much to tell. perfect for its use
Easy to use.
No issues with these, actually pretty straightforward to install and it hasn't given way yet!
Great to have as a spare in saddlebag along with a powerlink as it adds no weight but can save a ride following a broken chain.
A good quality, well machined product
Five star advice, products, service and delivery as usual from Merlin Cycles. I will use them again.
I always keep spares and only use original spare parts for optimum performance.
