Default Re: Tensioner issue solved for $5 and a hacksaw

you don't HAVE to have a chainbreaker to shorten a chain. Old school way is to grind the pin down flush with the link then use a hammer and punch, with the chain atop a vise with the jaws open just enough to let the pin pass.
I have also used a small deepwell socket on a bench, to punch the pin into.
