Have one from Pit posses! Using it for the past three years. Easy to use, satisfying with no complaint  :biker1:

I have a D.I.D. chain riveting tool I've had for about 8 years. I've fitted several chains with it and it hasn't broken yet.
+1, but i always grind the old rivet heads off first before using it  :031:

We have a Sealey chain splitter itís done quite a few chains.
We grind off the rivet heads on a link ( hopefully the master link) then use the tool to push the pins and back plate out, and itís just the reverse of the procedure riveting it back on. Itís easy to do I did my own chain and sprocket replacement with a bit of help to crack off the sprocket nut😀

Motion Pro, which I've used a lot of times.  I have 5-6 of their specialty m/c tools and they all flat work.   https://www.motionpro.com/c/tools

Using  Pit Posses, have a good experience with it.  Kit includes 16 essential pieces with three breaking tips, 2.2mm-2.9mm chains, lower and upper guide, spring, lever, handle, body, alignment bolt, push bolt, 2 press plates, instructions, sturdy carrying case. It cost me 54$ with shipping.
