Don’t be afraid…follow the man with the ripped hoody-sweatshirt into the dark, dingy basement, where The Clash is blaring on the eight track player, and he’ll show you how to first, un-install a Sram 10 speed chain (without breaking it!) and then install a white, yes white Taya 10 speed chain.

Dude. Good music.
Also, this: http://www.parktool.com/product/master-link-pliers
works brilliantly on the stupid 10-speed Powerlock and is super cheap.
Or you could replace it with a Connex link and be done with it, which is really the best solution.

It wouldn’t be a “hack” if you used the right tool for the job now would it? MacGyver is spinning in his grave.

You gotta remember – not everyone is as up on his stuff as you guys are.
(And not everyone has specific tools for the job that get used twice a year.)
BUT almost anyone who owns more than five tools has a pair of channel locks.

We’d been removing 10 speed powelinks this way for a while at the shop before the Park tool came along. When we saw it our reaction was “meh, who needs it?”
I just wanted to share my way of doing it, because there doesn’t actually seem to be a lot of good info out there (during a quick Google search) on the subject.

Thanks for reading.

I used to do this all the time, UNTIL it slipped and snapped my finger hard! Use the right tool, or face the risks!
