    that one was from a tractor supply...

    harbor fright or a similar place should have something like it..

    you also could go to your local cycle shop and have them do it for you.

    take beer!! they like beer lol

    Try e-bay or local motorcycle shops- they aren't cheap for 415 chain- 20 or 25 bucks, and I'm not sure if there's a good one- I have one- with only one pin- so don't bend it!

    So long as the push pin is equal to or smaller than the 415 chain, the HF tool will work.
    The WallyWorld chain breakers are pretty wimpy. I doubt that it will work unless you both grind off the head of the chain link pins and get really lucky.

    I use a hack saw and cut in between the links then pliers to snap them apart.

    The professional way !

    My local bike shop had a nice one for $10.

    Two fitting groves. one for regular, one for 410. It wouldn't do 415 though.

    Breaking chain makes me smile though, ditching the drive side tensioner?
    That requires chain breaking, the pedal side may as well, just get a good tool, it will be worth it ;-}

    Do what I did, use a dremle or a similar tools and grind the tops of the pins off of the chain.

    Before buying the HF chain breaker, I would use a hammer, punch, nail and a board. Pain in the butt, but works. The HF one is great but had to replace the pin with a nail. Some folks grind em down.


    Root, thats a great price. Just ordered one. Thanx for the link
