Small enough to fit in your tool box, but big enough and comfortable to use. You don't realize how handy scissors are and how often you need them till you don't have a pair, so this is a perfect item for my bike tool kit. You always need a good pair of scissors.
This is a great item to help keep all your small parts in one place, and the magnet is very helpful! Makes sure all those tiny parts don't roll off and you can fit the bowl on your bike rack while working, on your toolbox, anywhere magnetized so it's close by where you need it. This is a great product.
Removing the link is almost effortless. But installing a link requires some serious force. If I were in charge of the design, I'd make the handles a couple inches longer to increase your leverage.
The value is pretty good. Some Park tools are incredibly overpriced but these hit the mark. There are some slightly less expensive pliers available. But I went with Park because I can trust the quality and, well, it matches my other Park stuff.
