Chain Breaker/Chain Press

I want to buy a chain breaker and press tool. I saw some advertised at competiton accessories for $9.99 for the chain breaker and $13.99 for the sideplate press....

Has anyone used these and if so were they any good?

any other recommendations as to brand and quality?

Moved to proper section.....Tread

Only one worth buying IMHO is the motion pro jumbo chain breaker/riveter, all the rest are not heavy enough duty for modern high performance chains. Even the motion pro website warns about using their "standard" chain tool for the newer chains.

At those prices I would guess the only thing you would be breaking is your new tool.

I used motion pro kit paid $120 from a dealer and 1 piece broke the 1st time i uesd it..they did send me a replacement free of chargeBut while waiting for my piece I bought an RK kit on ebay for $90..love this kit seemed a lot more durable/hefty.But would go with whatever is available in your time frame...spend the extra $$$ worth it in the end

what are your feelings on the replacement chains where you just use the slip lock?

oh geez.... Thanks. I've never had to replace one of my chains.

So basically if we replace a chain, say I want to get the green one, I'd have to take it to a shop to install it? cause all I can do is cut it off with my di-grinder....

I don't have the money now to by a press.

Lets just say that you get what you pay for. A good chain with a high tensile strength will run you in the vicinity of $150 or better.
