PBR Chain Tool

Named after our favorite beer (well, not really) this handy chain tool can press, break, and rivet 520, 525, and 530 chains (PBR, get it?) all by its lonesome. The simple yet effective design also removes chain pins as well as presses master link plates and rivets or hollow-nose and soft-nose master link pins on O-ring and non-O-ring-type chains. You can change the tool’s functions by merely mating the position of the anvil block and the indexing letters on the body to ensure proper tool arrangement. Whether you are a shop pro or a garage mechanic, if you have a final chain drive on that bike of yours, this is the tool for you.
