cutting a chain is easy

-grind down the heads of the rivets on the link you want to cut

-flip the chain 90 degrees

-use a big, wide angle chisel to knock off the face plate

installing the master link is easy too

-slide the link in

-use big vise grips and a 8mm nut to press the face plate on

-clip on the clip

buy a DID or EX, o-ring or x-ring chain!!!

avoid umi chains!!!!
