You'll still need to grind down the pin with something. Don't be that guy who breaks the pin trying to push out the rivet without grinding off the head first.

I have an angle grinder you can borrow to, easier to just cut the chain off.

Just dremel down the pins on the plate and use a big flathead screwdriver to pop the plate off.

You will need the tool to put the new rivet on though.

I will hit you up next time I swap my chain/sprockets since you are not far from me. I lost a pretty important piece on mine and I don't do the job often enough to warrant replacing the whole thing.
