Thank you for choosing Positz Chain Links as a reliable solution for chain repair and emergency maintenance on your bicycle. This installation guide will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to properly install a Positz Chain Link to quickly fix a broken chain. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Preparing for Installation

  1. Ensure you have a Positz Chain Link, which consists of two outer plates with integrated pins.
  2. Familiarize yourself with the components of the Chain Link.

Step 2: Assessing Chain Compatibility

  1. Before installation, ensure the Positz Chain Link is compatible with your bicycle’s chain. It should match the size and type of your chain (e.g., 10-speed, 11-speed, etc.).
  2. Consult your bicycle manufacturer’s specifications or the chain packaging for compatibility information.

Step 3: Breaking the Chain

  1. If your chain is intact, skip to Step 4. If your chain is broken, proceed with this step.
  2. Use a chain tool or a master link pliers to break the chain at the damaged link. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions specific to your chain tool.
    • Apply steady pressure to push out the chain pin or detach the master link to separate the chain ends.

Step 4: Realigning the Chain Ends

  1. Hold the chain ends together, ensuring they align properly. The inner plates should face each other, and the chain rollers should interlock smoothly.

Step 5: Installing the Positz Chain Link

  1. Insert one end of the Positz Chain Link’s pins through one chain end’s inner plate holes, starting from the inside of the chain.
  2. Align the other end of the Chain Link with the corresponding holes on the second chain end’s inner plate.
  3. Push the Chain Link until the pins are fully inserted into both chain ends, ensuring a secure connection.

Step 6: Verifying Installation

  1. Gently tug on the chain to confirm that the Chain Link is securely installed.
  2. Rotate the chain by hand to ensure smooth movement and proper engagement with the chainrings and cassette.
  3. If the chain moves smoothly without any tight spots or binding, the installation is successful.

Step 7: Carrying Chain Links for Emergency Repairs

  1. Positz Chain Links are compact and lightweight, making them ideal for carrying on your bike for emergency repairs.
  2. Store the Chain Links in a secure and easily accessible location, such as a saddlebag, tool pouch, or jersey pocket.
