I tried sanding it down as it was very close but was not right and still a pain. This morning I removed the pin and replaced it with a nail with the point cut off. I used a nut as an inside washer and works great.

So for the price of $14.99 and a nail, have a pretty robust and working chain breaker. Pics are carp cam, (cell phone) sorry
Does anyone know how this breaker does with a #41 chain? I'm looking to get the #41 chain but I need a tool for it because I don't use master links. Would this work?

How about this? Do they push the pin back in putting the chain back together?
