Resetting the Chain Pin

Introduction to Resetting the Chain Pin

This section of the guide details one of two ways to utilize the #25 Chain Tool (REV-41-1442), resetting the chain pin. The included 3mm Allen Wrench works on all three screws of the tool.

Follow the steps below to see how to use the chain tool to reset the chain pin on the #25 Chain (REV-41-1365).

Steps

Step 1

Unscrew the pin screw and compression screw such that they are flush with the chain channel.

Step 2

Insert #25 chain (REV-41-1365) into the chain channel and align the desired link between the two vertical pins in the channel.

Step 3

Next secure the chain in place with the compression screw. Tighten until the chain cannot shift within the channel.

In the next step be careful to not overly push the pin out as it will be impossible to put it back in, and a master link will be needed.

Steps

Step 4

Screw the Pin Screw down until the pin almost touches the Cup Point Set Screw. The user should stop pushing the pin out before it leaves the back plate the outer link. Considerable pressure will be felt before the pin comes all the way out. Removing the chain from the tool to check if the pin is fully unseated from the bushing is recommended.

The final result will be the pin still partially connected to the chain (see photo as example).

Step 5

Put the link into the plate, and place the extruding link next to the compression screw in the chain channel.

Step 6

Turn the compression screw until the pin is fully seated back into the chain channel.

Step 7

Done! Chain is ready for use!
