EDIT: So when you reassemble the chain, without a masterlink, what do you use to round over the pin that you just put in?
I use a nice well made chain breaker that cost $12.00 from either Lowes or Home Depot, in fact it's identical to the tool I used in motorcycle shops for over twenty years. Pablo, I had the same question too regarding how a chain link could be used for a master link. There simply is not enough of the link pin exposed to properly or more importantly, successfully peen over the link side plate without it binding or coming off while under load.I just carry a spare master link, although they are a bit large and heavy!
