EK Screw on Link? - June 16, 2009, 10:57 AM

Time for a new chain and I'm going for an X-ring chain this go round and saw EK has a screw on master link. Link to it here: http://www.ekchain.com/access.htm

Just wondering if anyone has used one of these links. Looks like a nice solution for those of us without chain tools.

never seen that before but it looks like the screw on part just mushrooms the rivet and then is removed, could be wrong though

Avdrider has some good reviews. Sounds like a good idea to me. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=168120

I'd take that over an improperly installed rivet link. I've seen alot of them installed incorrectly.

EK is not some shady low budget Chinese knock off company, they are not going to sell and market a product that causes them any excess liability.

I don't think they are made to be used more than once, but if they are installed correctly the first time I don't see any difference from a standard rivet link.

That is kind of what it appears to do after digging a bit more on it. Seems like some reviews across the net, including ADV Rider seem to be pretty favorable. Will probably be trying it out myself.
