The new Wolf Tooth Components Master Link Combo Pliers might just be the tool you didn’t know you needed. Until now. According to WTC co-founder Brendan Moore, the Master Link Combo Pliers (MLCP) step in where most multi-tools leave off. Meaning, they include six key functions that most multi-tools don’t. And even if they do, the MLCP look like they may do it better.
First and foremost, the MLCP are designed to be the most compact master link pliers possible while still retaining their functionality. This means that they’re not only easy to use, but also are compatible with 10, 11, and 12 speed chains – including the funky shape of SRAM Eagle master links.
Moreover, they include internal storage for two pairs of master links inside the handle which closes with a satisfying magnetic snap.
Along with the master link pliers function, the tool includes a number of other features like mutli-use plier jaws that can be used for tightening valve nuts, a tire lever spoon end (not recommended for use on carbon rims), and a 3-way valve core removal tool.
Machined out of 7075 T6 aluminum, the tool comes in at 38g without the master links installed. Even with the links, this tool is light enough that there’s really no reason not to carry it along.
Pricing and availability
Available in a black or red anodized body, you also have the choice of black, red, blue, green, or gold anodized accent colors for the pivot bolt. Sold without master links, the tool retails for $29.95 and is available now.
