  • twisted on first use

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    price was great. it also looked rpmissing and I didn't want to have a chain tool as a part of the standard multitool since it seems not as convenient.

    Cons:

    I had it for a month in my seat bag, and then needed to use it - and it twisted on first trial.
    was totally unusable

    OtherThoughts:

    waste of 5$ is also a waste... I am disappointed since it was twisted real easily - and it need to be somewhat firm to handle chain pins.
    I tried to close the chain - insert a pin to its location. this may become a non-easy task - but in my case it was doomed from first trial and we needed to ask for an other biker for his (other cheap) tool that worked just fine.

    Bottomline:

    buy something stronger. maybe I needed to do something different, but I saw, after it was almost broken, an other tool which was quite cheap too and it wasn't breaking or twisted at all.
