If you prefer pedaling your bicycle rather than pushing it around like a luggage cart, you had better carry a proper chain tool. The CT-5 is durable enough for home shop use and compact enough to carry with you wherever you ride.
The Park Tool CT-5 Mini Chain Brute Chain Tool goes anywhere and actually performs like a shop quality tool. The fine thread, special V- shaped handle and super strong replaceable pin make chain removal and installation a breeze. The CT-5 works on any derailleur chain and has a "shelf" for loosening tight links. At only 77 grams, it's the perfect take-along chain tool. 10 and 11-speed chain compatible, this is the most effective and durable mini-chain tool that you'll ever use.
- The current CT-5 is designed to push the chain rivet from the chain side plates. If you do not want to push the rivet out, turn the handle only 5 complete turns with 9 and 10 speed chains.
