Ballards Chain Breaker

Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone has had this problem but thought I'd share.

 

No problems with breaking the chain but encountered an issue with the joining link, went through 3 of them before I worked out what was going on.

 

The depth of the hole is not deep enough (pic 2) so when I was pressing the plate onto the joiner is was pushing the pins out slightly, not allowing enough room to slide the clip on.

 

Called Ballards and they said yeah sorry mate that can happen with some DID chains??  Didnt expect them to sell a product with a known fault?

 

Anyway just had to drill out the hole and problem fixed.

Yep I've done the same thing as you on a couple of occasions.
