twisted on first use – Bicycle Steel Chain Breaker Repair Tool Reviews

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

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.
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
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.
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.
