Carries a master link.

Tape your master link in the handle space. You never know how difficult it is to reinsert a pin while on the road.

Easy to use and works great.

I changed out my first chain in years and the Park Tool CT-5 Mini Chain Brute Chain Tool cut the chain with ease. For the cost, it was the right tool for me and should last for years.

The Real Steel Deal

This tool is up to par, like all Park Tools. Made of real machine tool steel, this chain tool won't give up and crack in half like the cheap Chinese knockoffs sold in big box stores in their bicycle department!

Good quality at a fair price

I am a home mechanic and have worked on and maintained, repaired and upgraded my bikes, my family bikes and my friend's bikes for many years. Although there are lots of good tools on the market, Park can can be counted on for quality and value. This chain tool is a simple, quality tool that does what it is designed to do.

Simple to use

First time changing a chain. This little helper got me off to a very quick and easy start. It made it possible to take off the old chain and adjust the new to the right length. This is a tool anyone can use.

simple, compact, effective

So far I have only used it once, but it worked perfect. I assume it will hold up to many years of use. its small enough that I could carry it in a seat bag if I really wanted to, but it would be tight

Good little chain tool

My first chain tool. Keep in mind I dont need to use this all the time, but it did its job well. I figure I might need to use it up to 3 times a year, it looks like its sturdy enough to handle that for years to come.

Does it's job.

Looks like this one will last, others I've had tend to come apart right where the chain break nose meets the shaft.

My professional made in China chain tool broke the first time I used it...this one worked and no doubt will keep working. I will stay with Park Tools now.

worked well, small enough to carry on rides

I break chains on my mountain bike a couple of times per year. This tool should help prevent those long hikes back home pushing the bike. The tool is small and lightweight.

Excellent quality, American made!

I wanted a small, compact tool that would fit into my tool kit which I carry on my bike for emergency repairs. The CT-5C chain tool is made of a cast steel material not a poor quality, inexpensive, non-ferrous alloy. It is well machined with excellent fit and finish, in other words it's a high quality tool. I suggest that a person buy some extra chain pins and keep them with the chain tool for emergency repairs when they're riding.

Typical Park Quaility

I bought a CT-5 for shop use. I ended up breaking it down and I carry it in my seat bag. Approx one week after I started carrying it I broke a chain. The chain breakers that come with those little multi mini tools are next to useless. This one will work forever. Park makes good stuff. Never have had one of their tools wear out yet...if you decide to pack one on your rides, just make sure to wrap it in a plastic bag so it does not poke into your spare tube...I know some think carrying a full size chain tool is overkill, but I have stopped to help numerous other riders with broken chains. I think I converted them...

The Chain Tool Standard

Used primarily to shorten replacement chains in the home work shop. However when out on the road or trail to remove broken or relieve stiff links. Much easer to operate than the typical afterthought tool included with multi- tools I have used. That includes those starting with B, L ,P & and S. Do your self a favor, carry separate chain and tire tools and forget about the extra 80 grams. Get one for the home work shop and another for your seat bag. The price is right and it will last for decades of use.
